Add Limited-Use Abilities to Magic Items

    Could you explain why you don't like the charge system?  It seems like it does exactly what you are asking for.  The spells from these magic items show up in your spell menu, reference the item, and show the charge count needed.  Is the issue that you want the spell to be "greyed out" or something like that after it has been used (until recharging) - to make sure the player doesn't "double dip" on a once per day spell?

    Magic items seem to have only one "charge pool", rather than having a "per ability" charge pool.  I would agree that a "per ability" charge pool would be a nice optimization, if that is what you were meaning.

    Sure EBongo.
    The charge system is limited in that, if there are multiple limited-use abilities that your magic item implements, like say the multiple once-per-day spells granted by the Instrument of the Bards, there is no way for a player to keep track of each spell or ability the item grants, only how many total charges they've used.
