MAGIC ITEMS (SCROLLS)

 

SCROLLS

A spell on a scroll can be used only once. The writing vanishes from the scroll when the spell is activated. Using a scroll is basically like casting a spell.

 

Physical Description

A scroll has an AC of 9, 1 hit point, a hardness of 0, and a break DC of 8.

 

Activation

To activate a scroll, a spellcaster must read the spell written on it. Doing so involves several steps and conditions.

Decipher the Writing: The writing on a scroll must be deciphered before a character can use it or know exactly what spell it contains. This requires a read magic spell or a successful Spellcraft check (DC 20 + spell level).

Deciphering a scroll to determine its contents does not activate its magic unless it is a specially prepared cursed scroll. A character can decipher the writing on a scroll in advance so that he or she can proceed directly to the next step when the time comes to use the scroll.

Activate the Spell: Activating a scroll requires reading the spell from the scroll. The character must be able to see and read the writing on the scroll.

Activating a scroll spell requires no material components or focus. (The creator of the scroll provided these when scribing the scroll.) Note that some spells are effective only when cast on an item or items. In such a case, the scroll user must provide the item when activating the spell. Activating a scroll spell is subject to disruption just as casting a normally prepared spell would be.

To have any chance of activating a scroll spell, the caster must meet the following requirements:

The spell must be of the correct type (arcane or divine). Arcane spellcasters cannot cast divine spells from a scroll, nor can divine spellcasters cast arcane spells in this manner.

The user must have the spell on his or her class list.

The user must have the requisite ability score.

If the user meets all the requirements noted above, and the userís caster level is at least equal to the spellís caster level, the user can automatically activate the spell without a check. If the character meets all three requirements but his or her own caster level is lower than the scroll spellís caster level, then the character has to make a caster level check (DC = scrollís caster level + 1) to cast the spell successfully. If the character fails, he or she must make a Wisdom check (DC 5) to avoid a mishap (see Scroll Mishaps, below). A natural roll of 1 always fails, whatever the modifiers.

 

Determine Effect

A spell successfully activated from a scroll works exactly like a spell prepared and cast the normal way. Assume the scroll spellís caster level is always the minimum level required to cast the spell for the character who scribed the scroll (usually twice the spellís level, minus 1), unless the caster specifically desires otherwise.

The writing for an activated spell disappears from the scroll.

 

Scroll Mishaps

In a mishap, the spell on the scroll has a reversed or harmful effect. The DM determines what sort of mishap occurs, with a surge of uncontrolled magic energy that deals 1d6 points of damage per spell level being the default.
