I haven't really expirmented with scribing much but was suprised scribing moderate wounds cost 500 gold pieces (lions) but you can buy the potion for around 35-50 depending on appraise. Is there a list of spells and scribing costs? Seems to me it would be more realistic to have scribing cost around the same as it would to buy the scroll or potion.

To further extend this (and possibly open up a box of worms for myself).
Scribing scrolls, potions, and wands are all based on a few scripts and follow a fairly standard format for determining spell cost. Thus if you craft a level 1 wizard spell one day, 10 levels later, you will craft the same scroll.
For crafting scrolls, I believe the cost = innate spell level*caster level (represented in paranthesis on the item)*25
However, the real problem is that the scrolls aren't always crafted at the minimum caster level (it pulls the caster level from the blueprint of the item which cannot be altered by us without a hack). Thus, your cure light wounds scroll, likely crafts at caster level 5, increasing the cost of the item 5 fold. This is true for most clerical spells actually.
So why not alter this crafting scripts to bring these scrolls more in line with what can be bought in stores, you ask?
Because if we alter the script, we change the formula for ALL scrolls. This then means that a wizard can then craft a scroll for cheaper than what he can sell it to at a store, giving them an exploitable path for gold.
Without too much further explaination, the system could not be implemented without haks and thus is being observed for FRC2 rather than FRC1.
