Craft Faerie Dust [Item Creation]

The fey is familiar with the secrets of creating faerie dust

Prerequisite: Fey Type, Character Level 4th

Benefit: You can create faerie dust. This is a magical concoction of herbs and minerals that replicates the effect of one of the spells listed below. Much like a potion, anyone who possess the dust can use it as a standard action. Using the dust on another creature generally requires that the dust be sprinkled on the target and can only be used on adjacent creatures. This is performed as a touch attack that provokes an attack of opportunity. Each use of the feat produces enough dust for one use. Unlike with a potion, you do not need to know or be capable of casting the spell to create the dust. The secrets are contained in the individual recipes.

Creating the dust takes one day. When you create the dust, you set the caster level, which must be sufficient to cast the spell in question and no higher than your own level. The base price of the dust is its spell level × its caster level × 25 gp. To create the dust, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one half this base price.

The faerie, at his or her discretion, may add an action to be performed in order for the dust to take effect. This action must be specified during creation to the dust during creation in order to work. The classic example is flying dust that only works when the user thinks happy thoughts. Other ideas include the user must dance a jig as the dust is applied, or the user must be wearing a pink kerchief. If the requirement calls for continuous action, the user may make a concentration check as a free action each round to continue to think happy thoughts (or whatever). If the dust is used against an unwilling target, the user must maintain the required action.
