Summoning chalk holders were created by GM Mikos and premiered at Ebon Gate 2018 in Sorcerial Sartorial. They are used for holding Planar Shift (740) chalk. They can hold 8 pieces of chalk.

The chalk holder consists of a central tube, sized to accept a regular piece of summoning chalk, and an attached cylinder that enables it to hold seven more.

Analyze

You analyze the chalk holder and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

Looking over the holder and inspecting its finer details, you realize that it will always need to be "a/n (whatever)/chalk/holder".  This means the item's article CAN be changed.  Only "chalk" is allowed as the adjective, and only "holder" is allowed as the noun.

This chalk holder is magical in nature, since it enables a sorcerer to draw a summoning circle as if the selected piece of chalk was held directly by the practitioner.  Because of this enchantment it will not accept any pieces of chalk that are not summoning chalk.

If you were to play with the chalk holder, then you'd find that you can analyze, gaze, look, show, push, and twist it.

Release Post

Posted September 2018 by GM Mikos
A post in the Sorcerer category in April of '17 asked, hypothetically, what items should be contained in a shop designed to appeal to sorcerers.

One response that garnered multiple positive comments was, "A pen of sorts (like those pens with 4 colors from elementary school) that holds different chalks and can be switched between."

Consequently...
