Items and Objects: Magic Staves
The magic staff is a classic item, often found in the hands of powerful wizards. In Aenea, these items benefit a caster, and are often able to cast various spells.
Magical staff models in Aenea have all been changed from the default NWN models. More visible variety, and none of the bulky, chunky white looking out of place in the hands of a spellcaster.
When held, magical staves act as a spellcasting focus for the spellcaster, providing a +5 bonus to Concentration checks. This is done as a temporary item property added to the staff when it is equipped.
Metamagic Staves: This special type of magical staff can be used by a spellcaster to enhance his or her spellcasting. While held, such a staff may affect a spell cast by the wielder (not from an item), without actually using up a higher level slot, and the staff may work in conjunction with other metamagic that is already applied to that spell.
Certain limits do apply:
9th level spells: cannot be empowered, maximized, extended, widened, or heightened
8th level spells: cannot be empowered, widened, or maximized
7th level spells: cannot be maximized, or widened
