STUDY: You recognize that the clasp is a ritual focus. It's a tool that assists in harnessing the mana required to cast ritual spells, if it is invoked while the spell is being prepared.

In particular, this directly assists in harnessing mana. When activated, the clasp will accumulate energy from mana streams that pass through it, stored within a core of specially enchanted cambrinth. The enchantment is designed for fluid discharge rather than lifespan, so the magician must skillfully direct the spell energy within moments of reaching the desired charge.

The mana manipulation done through ritual foci are crude and often sharply limited by the design of the enchantment. Most ritual foci are limited to being useful only to a specific book of magic, though foci designed with incredible skill can be more broadly useful. No known ritual focus is fine enough to work at a level above the blunt strokes of empowering a ritual, much to the relief of their users' job security.

INVOKE: (while worn)

Try though you may, you find it too clumsy to invoke the moonsilver clasp while wearing it.

INVOKE: (while held)

You make sweeping gestures through the air, carefully coaxing mana through your clasp. Roundtime: 20 sec.

Your clasp steadily brightens, until it burns like a glowing green torch! You direct the flow of power you've conjured up into your spell pattern, taking much of the strain of empowering it off you.

Your clasp fades over the course of a few seconds, returning to normal.
