This spell makes the duration of certain other spell*s* permanent. You first cast the desired spell and then follow it with the permanency spell.

What if you're under the influence of multiple spells that could potentially be made permanent and own enough diamond dust for the making-permanent of all of them? Would one casting of permanency be enough?

If not, how would it decide which of the spells becomes permanent?

In its normal use, it's one permanency per spell to be made permanent. The only time you get a "bulk discount" on permanency is when it's part of the magic item creation process, when one permanency might be how multiple enchantments are bound into the item. For plain old spells on yourself, there's no bulk discount.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Julix He's talking about hypothetical items that require permanency to craft, I believe. The rules for magic-item-creation state that you must cast each spell once as a part of the creation process. But I really doubt that permanency is ever actually used in the creation of any item, since it would be very clear what, if any, money it costs to cast for the purposes of making the item. \$\endgroup\$
