MRPG Focus Items
A Focus Item is an item a Mage holds in order focus their concentration and aid in spellcasting. Anything can be named as a focus item, but specific items grant extra effects.
Without a focus-item, fast cast spells are slow-cast, and memorized spells cannot be cast. The player is free to declare any item a focus item, however that item must have an intrinsic meaning to the character, and only one item can be used at a time. Switching to a new focus item requires weeks.
These rules do not apply to characters using Special Proficiency: Magic to gain access to scrolls or alternate forms of spell-casting.
Advanced Focus Items
