Sigil Staff was teased for a future run of Duskruin Arena.

Tier 1(OTS)

a standard runestaff with some special messaging


Verb 1st Person 3rd Person
GET You remove a sigil-carved glowbark runestaff from in your dark book satchel. At your touch, a number of sigils worked into its grain take on a faint luminescence.

Tier 2

At this tier, the staff allows spells to be TRANSFERred from scrolls onto itself, number of spells the runestaff can hold are unlocked separately (up to 6 spells).


Tier 3

At this tier, the staff can be WAVEd at a target to dispel 1-3 spells (requires 500 mana to have been spent casting spells to fuel the ability and has a 5 minute cooldown) and adds special LOOK messaging.


Tier 4

At this tier, the staff can be RAISEd to lower the mana cost of all spells by 50% for 30 seconds or 10 casts (requires 5000 mana to have been spent casting spells to fuel the ability and has a 60 minute cooldown) and adds ambient messaging.


Tier 5

At this tier, the staff unlocks the ability for the runestaff to multi-cast (repeat the last cast spell) as a standard flare.

Analyze

You analyze your glowbark runestaff and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is a tier 5 Sigil Staff.

Tier
1: a standard runestaff with some special messaging
2: allows spells to be TRANSFERred from scrolls onto itself, number of spells the runestaff can hold are unlocked separately (up to 6 spells), currently holds 6 spells
3: can be WAVEd at a target to dispel 1-3 spells (requires 500 mana to have been spent casting spells to fuel the ability and has a 5 minute cooldown) and adds special LOOK messaging
4: can be RAISEd to lower the mana cost of all spells by 50% for 30 seconds or 10 casts (requires 5000 mana to have been spent casting spells to fuel the ability and has a 60 minute cooldown) and adds ambient messaging
5: unlocks the ability for the runestaff to multi-cast (repeat the last cast spell) as a standard flare

Unlocked verbs: draw, hug, invoke, point, prod, read, spin, transfer, touch, wave

The runestaff can have the color or quality of its sigils and magic effects customized with a descriptive word or phrase. Various messaging will include this custom setting.

The current setting is: pale

Messaging using this custom setting must make sense in the following context examples:
a/an [adjective] sigil
[adjective] energy/sparks/tendrils/haze

Customization should remain simple, nothing so complex as to require a comma.
Examples of functional customization choices: pale, dark, bright, shadowy, fiery, blue-green, coruscating violet, silver and gold
Examples of nonfunctional customization choices: shapes, anything that is not an adjective, anything lengthy enough to require a comma for grammatical purposes
Try to keep it to three words or less, and if three words, see prior rules. ('silver and gold' works, 'red, blue, and green' does not because of sentence structures, 'incandescent viridian and gold-speckled cerulean' is long enough to be cumbersome)
When in doubt, use a distinct color.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the glowbark runestaff for you.
