This silver tube, engraved with an intricate artistic pattern, appears at first glance to be an elaborate scroll case. The caps on either end are each set with a roughly-hewn onyx, bound in silver wire. When a common scroll is in the tube, and both ends caps are fastened, the wielder can sense the arcane energies present and harness them as if they were a spellcaster.

When you gesture with the scroll-caster in hand and speak the command word, roll+INT. On a 10+, the spell scribed onto the scroll is successfully cast (as if it were castable by you or on your class’s spell list). On a 7-9, the spell is cast, but choose one:

• You draw unwelcome attention or put yourself in a spot. The GM will tell you how.

• The spell disturbs the fabric of reality as it is cast—take -1 ongoing to using the scroll-caster until you wait for a minute or two and let reality settle back into place.

• After the scroll’s spell is cast, the scroll is depleted, leaving behind an ordinary sheaf of parchment.

  1. Great! “[A]s if the wielder were a spellcaster”. Does that mean the wielder have to make the “cast a spell” move? I think they should, and that “forgetting the spell” should be replaced by “the scroll is consumed”.
