Hi all

Are runestaffs available for purchse (like wands) for the Legends of Arcanis campaign. FiMII has a cost for a good at 2gc. I assume a Fine would be 20gc and an exceptional is 100gc (as if)

Also do Psions and divine casters have a wand equivalent.

Finally, from my reading it seems to suggest runestaffs can be used by any caster unlike wands.

Cheers

At present, no, not that I have read. They do occasionally pop up in mods (I think at least one has. . . ) though.

Oh really, I thought that because they weren't special material, and a clear price had been provided in the book, they could be purchased, just like a wand.

I hadn't even looked at those.

Since Wands are 1 gc and Runestaffs are 2 gc (both still require you to acquire the runes), its something else to add to the campaign document.

NB: The current campaign document is still a horrible mess that needs fixing and PDFing.

As far as I know, Rune Staves are not purchasable in the campaign.

As far as Divine wands, the only one I've seen is a Saluwe-specific Divine wand was given out in one of the mods.

I asked about this at a recent convention, and received the answer (though I can't remember from whom, I suspect it was a gm, and probably not campaign staff) that because it has a price listed, it is purchaseable in the campaign. That seemed logical to me. I haven't been able to find anything indicating it isn't purchaseable. If it isn't, can someone indicate how we are supposed to know it?

Thanks!

It's unclear to me if they are "purchasable."

Given that PCs can already purchase wands and that the runes staves are crafted (and any caster knows how to make one in theory) it seems to me that they SHOULD be able to get one.

I feel like this discussion happened before. Maybe on the old boards. But I don't remember the resolution.

Unless it is from PCI or Tony or Joe, then it is not official.

It seems like we definitely need a clarification. I had thought that only things specifically noted from FiM were allowed (basic runes and wands) but, reading the rune staff entry, it does seem like rune staves should be available.

Also, can divine (or other non-wand user) use a rune staff for casting? I suspect not but it seems a little unclear to me. Wands specifically spell out elder, eldritch, and primal and only allow crafting a wand if you can use one. Rune staff says "use the Rune Staff as a wand" and says "anyone trained in Arcanum" can craft one.

It is my understanding that psionic can use a rune staff (but can't use a wand - so this is their only option so far). Divine needs a holy symbol to use runes to help their casting.
