CASTING SPEED OF ITEMS
Presumably one can make items at a high EL that actually cast the
ensorceled spell at a lower EL in order that the spell is cast more
quickly. Example: A Fireball Wand created by a MEL10 wizard who knows
Fireball at EL5 might be 'set' to cast EL2 fireballs rather than the
maximum EL5 so that 8 mana points that the item can cast per phase is
not exceeded and allows the spell to be cast in a single phase. As per
rule 6.12 A) the EL5 that it was ensorceled at gives a -10 modifier to
the success roll.
Natural Magicians innate understanding of magic allows them to craft and
ensorcel items to double the usual casting speed as per Natural Magician
attribute. Shamans may opt to ensorcel Orient Self into an item for the
same purpose. This can increase the item's Casting Speed potentially up
to doubling the mana/phase the item can cast. These are NOT cumulative.
A Natural Shaman could at most only double the item's casting speed.
