Improved Scroll Casting (Su): At 10th level, the scrollmaster can cast a wizard spell from a scroll and use his own Intelligence score and relevant feats to set the DC for the spell, and can use his own caster level if it is higher than that of the scroll (similar to a caster using a staff). The scrollmaster must have already deciphered the writing on the scroll to use this ability. This ability replaces the 10th-level wizard bonus feat.
The scrollmasters ability only lets you do 2 things:1. Use your Intelligence score and relevant feats to boost the save DC
2. Use your caster level
It does nothing else. It doesn't let you add bonus damage (such as from bloodline arcana, being an evoker, or the half-orc favored class option). It doesn't let you add metamagic to an already existing scroll, or reduce the level adjustment of metamagic feats.
You can craft a scroll with a metamagic feat included. But anything that reduces the level adjustment when you cast a spell does not apply, even with scrollmaster, as you are not the one casting the spell.
You may be able to prepare a selective fireball as a 3rd level spell, but when crafting a scroll it is a minimum of a 4th level spell, because any metamagic reducers you have don't apply.
