A Scroll is a magic item. It is a physical storage device for a single spell, which can be used only by a caster. Casters may create a scroll or scrolls on their turn, for a significantly higher cost in juice than simply casting the same spell.


A scroll with a spell of the same Discipline as the Caster has a greater effect than one cast by a different Discipline.Erf-b1-p006Same-site.PNG

Even a caster who is normally not proficient at casting spells beyond his own discipline can use scrolls of other disciplines with some effectiveness.

It is not clear whether casting a spell from a scroll spends any of the caster's juice.

It is possible there are other costs (e.g. money) associated with scrollmaking, as otherwise one might suspect Duty would require casters to spend all of their 'off-combat' turns creating scrolls rather than 'taking it easy' having picnics et al (of course, it is also possible they are in fact doing so offpage).
