It has been quite a while since we've done something like this, so it's perhaps long overdue.
There are times where, when looking at the interaction between setting and rules, one realizes that there is a thing must exist in the setting yet has never before been described, such as the extensive network of familiars who write correspondence to one another about magic theory. (We all know that a fair proportion of the letters carried by redcaps are missives written between cats and owls concerning astrological influences on spell invention. Why didn't the published books delve into this more deeply?)
The thing that I'd like to detail, with your help, are laboratory texts for use by apprentices.
Apprentices have lots of uses; Translation of unknown laboratory texts (it takes apprentices longer to decode texts but their ability to do so is not cappeed at a level), writing lab texts and casting tabets (high scribe score is not required), fixing AC's for yourself and your sodalies, acting as a substitue for you on matters that might otherwise remove you from the laboratory or library, extracting an extra pawn of vis or two, and possibly even acting as a laboratory assistant on occasion.
The particular use for an apprentice I'd like to examine here is the creation of lesser enchanted devices and charged devices. Specifically ones created with the help of a laboratory text (probably a text copied by an appentice).
With a lab text an apprentice can create a device equal in level to their lab total. I am imagining here characters between 2 and 10 years in to their education/servitude. The lab totals they might have would be magic theory 3 with a matching shape and or material bonus of 3, an aura of three, and six or so points of intellegence and applicable arts. They'll have enough lab total to handle a level 15 item lesser enchanted device or, if they've no vis, a level 15 charged item with three charges (like three doses of a potion).
I've got about 10 ideas scribbled down but I'd hope to get one for every technique form combination so I'd love your input.
