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 must also be enchanted and blessed. When all is done correctly the foci is 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.
Creating some of the foci requires to DIP a component into one of the pools on Tol EressŽa or in Valinor.
