Gaethzen is a material that acts as a magical light sources powered by mana. You use them almost exactly as you use Cambrinth items, however instead of getting your mana back, you get light instead! A light source becomes very handy if you're going into a dark area and need to be able to see your way around.
Gaethzen items are extremely fragile. If you DROP them, they will shatter. LOWER GROUND for a hands free light source. They are also like Cambrinth in that they become attuned to whatever magic they were first charged with. So if you as an Empath charge it with Life Magic, then give it to a Cleric, who tries to charge it with Holy Magic, you can kiss the gaethzen goodbye! Gaethzen can be retuned by a Moon Mage, just like Cambrinth.
Per GM Persida: Gaethzen is an unusual substance that holds magic very well and uses the mana inside it to cast a steady glow. Unactivated gaethzen has faint bands of color which swirl gently within the milky glass-like material. When it's activated, it glows softly, emitting a steady light.
- CHARGE <item> <amount>: Charges your gaethzen with mana to fuel the enchantment.
- The more you charge your gaethzen, the longer the light will last, up to it's maximum capacity.
- FOCUS <item>: To forge a magical link to it.
- RUB <item>: To activate it. Rub it again to deactivate it.
When the mana fueling it is spent, your gaethzen item will simply extinguish itself.
