Chapter 2

Spell Books

Spell books are found in one of three forms; Scroll Books, Spell Books and Traveling Spell Books. Scroll books are not magical scrolls such as magic items. These are from cultures that maintain records in scroll form rather than in book form. Witchdoctors often pass on their knowledge in this format, along with hedge wizards and the like. This type of storage is primitive, can not hold as much and it is much more fragile. Scroll Books should never be considered as traveling versions of a mages spell book; they are a cultural identity item. Spell Books are typically found in wizard libraries and are constructed of rare materials and reinforced for long life. These are larger items, with one Spell Book filling a typical backpack to capacity. Traveling Spell Books are smaller compact versions of a Spell Book. They hold fewer pages and are not as sturdy. They are typically two thirds the size of a standard Spell Book in bulk.

These are the typical number of spells in a type of storage device. See Learning Spells for additional information about storing spells.
