Spellbooks & Scrolls



  • As noted previously, a magic-user has a spellbook that contains a collection of their commonly known spells (the ones they start with) and spells they have discovered, stolen, or researched.

    Spellbooks

    All magic-users begin play with a spellbook containing the following spells: Detect Magic, Identify, Read Magic, and Scribe. In order to add a new spell to a spellbook, a character must find a copy of the spell (in another spellbook or on a scroll) and use Scribe to add it to their spellbook. This process - as outlined in the spell description - takes 1 hour per level of the spell. Powerful magic-users may research new spells, summon them into existence, and then Scribe them into a spellbook.

    Scrolls

    Scrolls permit a magic-user to cast more spells per day than they normally are permitted through memorization. A magic-user may activate and imbue a spell into a scroll from their spellbook. This permits anyone who can read magic to cast the spell from the scroll. Once it is cast, the scroll crumbles to dust and the spell returns to its origin spellbook. Using Scribe to create a scroll costs 100gp per leve of the spell worth of rare materials that are consumed in the creation of the scroll.

    Destruction

    Spellbooks and scrolls can be damaged or destroyed. Scrolls that are destroyed send the spell back to its last origin spellbook. Spellbooks must be recreated using the Scribe spell. This process - as outlined in the spell description - takes 1 hour per level of the spell. And, each spell must be restored using this process. Thus, a magic-user recreating a spellbook with two 1st level spells and a 2nd level spell requires 4 hours. There is no cost other than to purchase a new spellbook (15gp for 100 pages).



  • Can we get a list of the spells the Gods provide to their clerics?

    Working on it!

    I've added this to the Gods & Religion thread.
