More Mighty Than Steel

At some point in his career, every wizard finds himself needing to write magical spells. Whether creating scrolls, transcribing an ancient spellbook, or simply adding spells to his own spellbook; the use of inks and quills is time consuming and expensive. It is not surprising, then, that many wizards have sought to use magic to reduce the tediousness of the task. This collection includes nine magical items for use in your game:

Ink of Summoning-a powerful substance that can be used to call a specific creature to you. Write the name of a specific creature onto a page with Ink of Summoning, then burn the page. As the page is consumed the creature whose name appears on the page is called before you.

Parchment of Preparedness-is a boon to anyone seeking to scribe magical scrolls. Spells can be scribed to Parchment of Preparedness without the expenditure of experience points, and comes in three forms; Minor, Major and Superior.

Pen of Pain-It is often said that the pen is mightier than the sword. The Pen of Pain was created by a wizard who set out to prove it.

Quill of the Cipher-is a boon to anyone wishing to conceal the true nature of a message.

Quill of Transcription-is a handy item for anyone who enjoys speaking, but finds the process of writing to be a bit tedious.

Sinned's Tattoo Ink-can be applied to skin as easily as ink to a page.

And for a fantasy twist on the old Rock-Paper-Scissors game, three Minor Artifacts are also detailed.
