I am a wizard who can cast 2nd level arcane spells. I want to create a scroll of a 3rd level arcane spell. Would this even be possible?
Under the creating magic item rules
The DC to create a magic item increases by 5 for each prerequisite the caster does not meet. The only exception to this is the requisite item creation feat, which is mandatory. In addition, you cannot create potions, spell-trigger, or spell-completion magic items without meeting its prerequisites.
But nothing specifically says what the prerequisites are. Not scrolls further down, not scribe scrolls feat, not the page on magic items scrolls.
Learning the spell isnt an issue as under the magic rules for adding new spells to a wizards spellbook doesnt have any restriction on the level of spell compared to your own casting ability.
Scribe scrolls stated that you are able to craft a scroll of ANY spell you know.
On the crafting magic items page it says that the feat is required as well as one of three skills. It also TALKS about casting the spell but that doesnt have required next to it.
