Arcana represents the various arcane spellcasters in Magnimar. They will be interested in sourcing unusual spell components, following up on rumours of ancient magics, and generally trading knowledge and obscure items.

There is no single representative faction, though the Golemworks will be behind a lot of the requests.

Spell Components

The wizards of Magnimar always have a use for the body parts of unusual creatures for use in spell research. As such, they will pay for dead creatures as long as they are in good condition.

Other Items

There is a chance of an item of up to 2000gp in value being present. The base chance is 75%. Items requiring a caster of more than 3rd level are not available in this way.

Getting Items Made

It takes 1 week per 1000gp of the base price of the item to make it (this is an increase on standard rules), to a minimum of a week. Potions and Scrolls take the normal time.

Finding someone to make you an item can be difficult, and most wizards and clerics have their own work to do, or will be working on items for other customers. Finding someone to make an item can take time. Each week, roll a d20, modified by any bonuses from your reputation.
