When a Cleric creates a 5th level scroll, the cost is 1,125 gp. But how should PCs roleplay spending money for the scroll's cost?
I know the Pathfinder PRD indicates "a character needs a supply of choice writing materials, the cost of which is subsumed in the cost for scribing the scroll". But subsumed means the cost of writing materials is included in the scroll's price; it doesn't mean it's equal to the price. Thus, if my "choice writing materials" cost 10 gp, what happens to the remaining 1,115 gp when I create a scroll? Does it magically disappear? Is it supposed to be offered as an offering to the Cleric's god?
