Wand-holding runestaff/saved posts
The wand-holding feature is a script for runestaves, which will be available at EG!
The downside is they will degrade with use, as the mechanisms are very delicate and were never intended to be carried in to battle.
The upside is that they are repairable (by anyone), but it takes some time. Gnomes will, of course, be the best at it.
The repair/maintenance mechanics as I've got them currently are such that it's something best done in town, between a hunt when you have some downtime anyway. It will be much easier to do a bit of preventive maintenance, as opposed to running it all the way down until it breaks. If you do manage to break the mechanism, the wand portion of the staves will cease to function until it gets repaired (and yes, you can do this yourself). It will still be usable as a runestaff, though.
Save those steel springs!
A few skills and stats are factored in to repairing the staves. A normally-trained rogue will be pretty good at it, all things considered. Room conditions play no part in it, so feel free to repair in public.
