Magical Artifacts

Recharging and usage information.

 

Information about magic staves, wands, and rings found on the Discworld. Magical artifacts have various effects when they are used, the usage of which varies with each type of artifact. Wands are zapped at a target, staves are invoked, targetting the entire room, and rings are twisted, affecting the wearer. Users of the artifacts must also have a high enough bonus in the appropriate skill to be able to use the artifact successfully, or it may not work or even backfire.

 

Magical artifacts can also be recharged using purple mineral powder. Each artifact needs a different amount of powder per charge and some are more difficult to charge than others. The amount of powder used per charge usually indicates the difficulty in recharging.

 

After each recharging, the magical durability of the artifact decreases, lowering the number of charges it can hold and the probability of successful charging. If too many charges are placed on such an artifact, or its condition is too low, the artifact will explode when recharged, causing damage to the charger. An artifact's condition can be checked using the spell Crondor's Fabulous Detection: The artifact will glow to indicate its condition. The colours it can glow, from safest to least, are purple, green, red, blue, orange, pink, yellow, cyan, indigo and vermilion.
