Illuminas`s Tome of Magic

         These magic items are only given out by Illuminas, and they teach a style of magic created by him and instruct the reader a more generalised style of casting magic than is usually taught in the Empire.

         The book commonly is paired up with a Staff of Illuminas, but these are less common as it seems that Illuminas would rather teach his style of magic rather than hand out magic items.

         The Tome teaches the user how to compartmentalise their memory and then memorize spells into these memory compartments. It costs 50xp to learn a compartment for a petty magic spell, and 200xp per level of the spells that can be memorised into that compartment. EG if a wizard wants to create a compartment that can store 3rd level spells then it costs 600xp.

         These memory compartments can store a spell of the level it was created for, or a spell from a level lower than it. The only spells that can be memorised into these compartments are those from the tome. A spell takes a number of hours equal to its level +1 to memorise (so a petty magic spell takes 1 hour, and a fourth level spell takes 5), spells remain in their compartments until a new spell is put into the compartment instead.

         The spells memorised can be used in the same way as any other spell using magic points, and count towards advancement, using the same game rules as conventional spells, but offering the wizard a greater flexibility.

         These are never found for sale, however if acquired then the sale price would depend on who was approached (a powerful wizard would have difficulty in learning the new style necessary for the spells in the book, whereas a wizard who could benefit from the book wouldn't likely have a huge amount of money as they would be fairly inexperienced).
