Tested a bit more. Even 15% innate bonus on a mage is enough. This means Taimai elders and LA Ulm Black priests can also make free items if they have luck to find construction bonus site. Sounds evil.

Well, in practice generally 1 gem with no hammer is better than no gems with a hammer by the point of the game you're putting up forge of the ancients, etc.

The point isn't so much that you can get free items, but that it's possible to exceed the 80% cost reduction cap, which I had previously thought was a hard limit. As I mentioned, with the same set of bonuses they forge 40-gem items for 6.

I suspect that the key is pushing the bonus to 80% before the site bonus is factored in, and then the site bonus ends up pushing it beyond 80% reduction (and truncating, so items costing fractional gems are free).

I've never heard of an "80% cost reduction cap" (except in GURPS) before. The algorithm is pretty simple: if there's Forge of the Ancients up, halve cost and round down. Then apply your forge bonus and round down again. And yes, you can forge cheap items for free with a large enough bonus, although in practice it's probably better to forge an expensive item for really cheap.

Now you can see that fighting in void has its penalties:

Fire Plate (at least in CBM) adds 2 to morale but never mentions that in its description.

I certainly didn't. Sorry if it's been mentioned already.
