Characters with the scribe scroll skill can produce scrolls using production points. A character only spends production points when you first check-in for an event. In order to create items you'll have to learn to use the preproduction system.
To produce a scroll it costs 1 production point and 1 coin per level of the spell being stored in the finished scroll. In addition to the scribe scroll skill the producing character must know the spell being put onto the scroll and have enough magic power points to cast that spell at least once.
Written items such as scrolls, rituals, and tomes have a fixed incant written down on them. When using one of these items you must read the incant exactly as it appears in writing. This requires knowing the appropriate language for texts not written in common. Even if you have these words memorized you are required to have enough light to read the text by and are expected to role-play reading the text from the paper.
You can only use scrolls that contain a range of self if you know the spell on the scroll. When you cast such a scroll you treat it as if you cast the spell regardless of who wrote the scroll (this is important for ley lines).
Rituals are often contained on special scrolls known as ritual scrolls. Ritual scrolls can only be written with a ritual quill. In addition, scrolls containing powerful fifth level magic spells, such as Maelstrom, must be scribed with a ritual quill. A single ritual quill may be reused for any number of fifth level scrolls, but using a ritual quill to scribe a ritual scroll renders the quill useless, it must then be discarded and replaced.
Creation of this object requires the player to provide their own prop to represent it. This can be nearly any writing implement that does not look modern or anachronistic. This prop must be presented and approved at logistics at sign in, where it will be given a treasure ID number. A ritual quill is an in-game, stealable item.
Ritual magic is some of the most powerful and potent in Novitas. Because of this, special care and materials are often used when preparing and performing rituals. Rituals are often contained on special scrolls known as "ritual scrolls". Ritual scrolls can only be written with ritual ink. In addition, some specific standard scrolls of powerful magic spells, such as Revive, also require ritual ink.
Each vial of ink is sufficient for the creation of 5 scrolls requiring ritual ink.
