From Obscura

The invoker school teaches how to use a personalised magical or alchemical focus to produce elemental effects. This school excels at controlling the battlefield and supporting allies.


Invokers use a Focus, a personalised alchemical or magical item (whichever is more appropriate to your character) imbued with Energy to use focus powers. Foci don’t require a vocal to activate, but some invokers find a verbal element helps. Foci are typically held in the hand (which can be your offhand, not requiring ambidexterity) or worn. Foci can’t be used as weapons, even if larp-safe. Invokers are very attached to their focus, and it’s not possible to remove a focus by any means.

Foci can be constructed by various means, and can be many different types of object. Something that's common to all successfully constructed foci is a personal connection of some sort, either the focus is based on an object of personal importance to the invoker, or it was personally crafted by the invoker.

Examples of a magical focus could be an instrument, or scroll of thaumaturgic designs or a wand. An example of an alchemical focus could be a set of alchemical substances that you've learned to rapidly draw effects from.
