So, recently a condition of Permanency stood out at me, and I'm trying to determine if, by RAW, there is a way to circumvent it. According to Permanency, you must be a minimum caster level in order to make certain spells Permanent. Let us us Enlarge Person as an example, which requires one to be CL 9.
Say, for example, I was a Barbarian or something who is currently level 6. Then, let us say for the sake of argument that I wanted to be Large size. According to what I've read, the use of a Scroll of Permanency created by a 9th level caster (the minimum required level to make Enlarge Person) permanent is a DC 29 Use Magic Device check. Then, assuming I got someone to cast Enlarge Person on me, could I then use that scroll, assuming I succeed on my UMD check, even though I'm not level 9? (assuming I've paid the necessary 2,500 gp. extra diamond dust in addition to the scroll's price). Or is the minimum caster level of the spell in reference to the person "casting" the spell (i.e. the user of the scroll), and would therefore be impossible even with a successful UMD check?
In other words, can a character use UMD and a scroll made by a 9th level wizard make a spell permanent even though they themselves are not the minimum caster level for it?
