One of my players brought up the example of the Warden's Sword as an enchanted item. For those not so familiar with the source books, these are powerful enchanted swords made by Captain Luccio, the leader of the Wardens, personalized to the warden they're to be assigned to, and then given to them. They're even given as example enchanted items in the book. Mechanically speaking, though, any enchanted item you make counts against your enchanted item limit. After a bit of conversation, we came up with two main options:
- Enchanted item slots mainly cover maintaining enchanted items and the thaumaturgy casting is what lets one perform it, so the sword counts against the recipient's enchanted item slots.
- Potions count for enchanted item slots, and they don't need maintenance and can be freely given away, so the sword counts against the maker's enchanted item slots.
Is there a third option we haven't found here? If not, which of these is most suitable?
