  • Magical Item – Common – Ruby of the War Mage – 50 gp
    • Standard: Etched with eldritch runes, this 1-inch diameter ruby acts as a spell casting focus for your spells. You can use it in place of a spell component pouch for items costing less than 10 gp once per short rest.
    • Attunement: Allows you to use a simple or martial weapon as a spell casting focus for your spells. For this property to work, you must attach the ruby to the weapon by pressing the ruby against it for at least 10 minutes. Thereafter, the ruby can’t be removed unless you detach it as an action, or the weapon is destroyed. Not even an anti-magic field causes it to fall off. The ruby does fall off the weapon if your attunement to the ruby ends.
    • Relic: When used by a dragon, it can replace the need for a spell pouch and items costing up to 10 gp. Once per short rest it can replace a material component up to 10 gp per level. It can be attached to a horn, claw or scale turning your body into the spellcasting focus.
