Magical Scrolls

Magical Scrolls can have any one spell from any class inscribed on them.

Any creature can then cast that spell from the scroll by using a rod. Once the magical scroll is used, it loses all its effects and cannot be used again. The rarity of the magical scroll is determined by the level of the spell inscribed on it.

With 3 hours of work with Spellcraft Tools, you can create Magical Scrolls using Magical Gems. When you do so, you must make a Check using the Tool’s skill (Arcana or Tools Manipulation).

If the result is equal or higher than the Check DC on the Spellcraft Table, you succeed, and you can then create one Magical Scroll with the same rarity as the Magical Gem used. On a fail, you waste the Magical Gem instead.

When you create a Magical Scroll, you can choose any spell from any Class to inscribe on that scroll. Any creature can then use a Rod to cast the chosen spell from that Magical Scroll you made. Once the Magical Scroll is used, it loses all its effects, and it cannot be used again.

The maximum level of the spells in the Magical Scroll is determined by its rarity, as shown in the Spellcraft Table.

Rods

Rods are necessary items required to use Magic Scrolls. First, a person must wrap a Magic Scroll in a rod. Then, anyone holding that rod can cast the spell from that Magic Scroll. Once the spell is cast, the Magic Scroll is burned and can’t be used again.

Rods are great tools that allow anyone to cast any spell, but they can be clunky in combat because you must re-wrap the rod with a new Magic Scroll every time you want to cast another spell.

Rods can vary greatly from one another. Each Rod can give a unique effect to spells cast with them, and some rods only cast spells from certain Classes. Each Rod also has a maximum Level of Spells it can cast.

A Caster can bypass the limit of a Rod using Mana. They need to spend 2 Mana per Level gap between the Rod’s spell Limit and the Magical Scroll’s Level.

Example: If you have a rod with a limit of Level 2 spells and use a magic scroll with a Level 6 spell, you would need to use 8 Mana (4 times 2) to cast that spell.

To benefit from a Rod’s effects, you must be holding it with one hand, and you no longer need one free hand to cast Normal Spells while holding a Rod.
