Knowstones

In the most distant prehistory, ancient sor­cerers crafted the first mortal magic items, some of which rivaled divinely forged arti­facts in raw, untamed power. While most of those ancient items tore themselves apart by the sheer force of their barely bound eldritch might, a few lesser items survived. Recently, some modern sorcerers have allegedly uncov­ered the techniques for fashioning knowstones.

Note: DMs should note that knowstones are an optional rule and should be fully versed and comfortable with this concept before allowing knowstones.

Knowstones

A knowstone is a semi-precious stone con­taining the formula for casting a spell within.

Physical Description: A typical knowstone is a small, smooth semi-precious stone inscribed with an ancient arcane symbol. The stone itself typically has a value no greater than 25 gp before the etching of the arcane symbol.

Activation: A knowstone provides its bearer with knowledge of the inscribed spell, which he can then use his spell slots to cast normally (as if the inscribed spell were among his known spells). The knowstone's bearer need not make any conscious decision to use the knowstone apart from deciding to cast the inscribed spell. (This is considered part of the spellcasting action.) Any spontaneous caster can use a knowstone, provided that the spell it includes is on his spell list and he can cast spells of its level. For example, a bard may cast crushing despair from a knowstone of crushing despair if he can cast 3rd-level spells, whereas a sorcerer must be able to cast 4th-level spells to employ a knowstone of that spell.
A knowstone always appears in a piece of jewelry but does not occupy a magic item slot. It takes 24 hours for a knowstone to attune to a new bearer, after which time the knowstone grants its inscribed spell.

Creation: You can create a knowstone for any spell you know. Grafting a knowstone takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price (500 gp total price for a 0-level spell). The base price of a knowstone is its the spell level squared x 1,000 gp + expensive material components or focus (if any). To craft a knowstone, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price. Creating a knowstone requires the Craft Wondrous Item feat.

感谢灰酱的翻译!

认知宝石

在最为久远的远古时代,古代术士们制造了这第一种凡人的魔法造物。它们中的一些拥有可与神铸之器媲美的,原始而不可控制的强大力量。尽管这些古老的造物大部分都被自身纯然,狂暴而毫无约束的力量所毁灭,仍有一些稍弱小的造物留存了下来。近来,据称有一些现代的术士发掘出了加工这种认知宝石的技术。

注:DM应该注意的是,有关认知宝石的叙述是一条可选规则。在开放此规则前应确保对其有充分的熟识和认知。

认知宝石

认知宝石是内部包含着一个可施放法术的次级宝石。

描述:典型的认知宝石是一枚刻有古老奥法符文的,小巧而光滑的次级宝石。宝石本身在铭刻奥法符文前的价值一般不超过25gp。

激活:认知宝石可为持有者提供所铭刻法术的知识,使其能够用他自身的法术位来正常地施放此法术(如同所铭刻法术在他的已知列表中)。
认知宝石的持有者不需要对宝石有任何的特意关注,除非他决定施放其中的法术。(这被认为是施法动作的一部分。)
任何自发施法者都可以使用所铭刻法术包含在他本人法术列表内,且法术等级符合他的施法能力的认知宝石。举例而言,一名已可施放3级法术的吟游诗人可以利用绝望无助(Crushing Despair)认知宝石施放这一法术,但一名术士则需要能够施放4级法术才可以使用这一宝石。
认知宝石总是以一件首饰的形式出现,但不会占用一个魔法物品栏位。新的持有者需要24小时来与认知宝石进行调谐,在此时间后宝石即可提供所铭刻的法术。

制造:你能够制造任何铭刻有你已知法术的认知宝石。
制造一枚认知宝石需要花费的时间(以日为单位)相当于其基本价格的1/1000(以金币为单位)。此外,你还需支付相当于其特性总价格1/25的经验值,以及相当于该价格一半的原料费用.
认知宝石的基本价格是它其中法术等级的平方×1000gp,再加上贵重法术材料的加值(如果有的话)。(0级法术的总价为500gp。)
制造认知宝石需要制造奇物专长。
