I will start a campaing in a few days and my players are on the "Character Building" mode for this week, and they are asking me a lot of really creative questions regarding possible builds. That's fine and is really good, but one question in special put me wondering on it's viability. The characters should be built for 10th level, so lot's of combinations are avaliable.
One of the players built a vanilla Wizard and picked up Craft Wondrous Item as a feat. That's ok. Then she asked me to have some Pearls of Power, using the craft price (since she would have "crafted" the pearls in her backstory). I normally allow that - if we started the campaign on the first level, she would have the pearls at the craft price anyway. But them, she asked me that all the pearls would have the same command word - she thinks that it is reasonable, since she made all the pearls and thus could choose the command word. By RAW, we have this:
Command Word: If the activation is on command or if no activation method is suggested either in the magic item description or by the nature of the item, assume that a command word is needed to activate it. Command word activation means that a character speaks the word and the item activates. No other special knowledge is needed.
A command word can be a real word, but when this is the case, the holder of the item runs the risk of activating the item accidentally by speaking the word in normal conversation. More often, the command word is some nonsensical word, or a word or phrase from an ancient language. Activating a command word magic item is a standard action and does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
Emphasis mine. Link here, search for Command Word.
If it is possible to activate the item by accident, it would be possible to activate multiple itens by accident - and so, the rationale says that it should be possible to activate multiple itens on purpose. Also, the SRD states that you just say the world and the item activates.
I understand that her idea can be really overpowered if used right, but I don't want to punish her criativity. So, I need to ask:
Is that legal by the rules? If it not, how would you rule the sittuation? Would you disallow this completly, or go with it? House-rules suggestions are welcome.
Insight on how to deal with that on the table is welcome too.
