Talismans

Talismans are spells bound into the shape of an object.


Specific Details

Any spell that can be targeted to affect a single person or place can be attached to a talisman, with the right knowledge. It takes more skill to bind the spell to a talisman than just to work the spell, but the skill can be learned. Talismans are meant for long-term effects, unlike potions which are pretty much a one-time use. A talisman could be a lucky charm (have a spell of luck), a protective amulet, or even a healing token. Talisman are typically generic, and can be carried/worn/used by anyone, though some are created to be used by a specific person.
