A focus is an object imbued with powerful magic and bound to its owner. Several
kinds of foci are rumoured to exist, each endowed with different powers. A
warrior might prefer a focus which enhances his battle prowess or weakens his
enemies, a sorcerer could instead focus on his arcane arts or on healing.
Certain focus powers are constantly active others must be explicitly called
upon, by USING the item - on oneself, on someone else or on an entire group.
Foci are created by casting 'create focus' on the appropriate material
component. If the ceremony is performed in the right place and in the right
way, the vessel is enchanted and bound to the caster.
People cannot own more than one focus at any given time: old foci will lose
their powers whenever a new focus is created.
