Tome of Teaching

Wondrous Item, Rarity varies

These types of books allow a person to become proficient in various languages and tools. The pages of such a book are enchanted so that they resonate more directly with the reader's mind. These enchantments connect directly with the mind of the first person who spends some time read the book, which means it can only be used once after it has been created. The enchantment is able to bypass a number of conventional memory and learning barriers which makes these type of tomes effective even for individuals with difficulties with traditional learning methods. There are two major types of tomes, Tonguetomes for languages, and Tooltomes for tools.

Tomes of Tongues

Learning Languages. The pages of these books are enchanted with auditory illusion magic. When you read a Tome of Language, you hear the words written in it spoken in your mind. This enchantment allows you to comprehend and learn the language written within its pages more quickly. When you read such a book for at least 1 hour, the enchantment imprints on you, and the book can no longer be used by another creature. To learn a new language using one of these tomes, you must dedicate time to studying it. The time required equals a number of weeks equal to 8 minus your Intelligence modifier. Upon completion of this study, you gain proficiency with the language and have the ability to speak, read, and write the language fluently.

Tomes of Tools

Teaching Tools. The pages of these books are enchanted with visual illusion magic, when you read a Tome of Craftsmanship, you can see the steps of the crafting process in your mind's eye. This enchantment allows you to visualize the use of various tools as well as the creative and fabrication processes described within the pages of the book more clearly. When you read such a book for at least 1 hour, the enchantment imprints on you, and the book can no longer be used by another creature. To learn how to use a new set of tools using one of these tomes, you must dedicate time to studying it, and practice the techniques within it, for which you also require the tools. The time required equals a number of weeks equal to 20 minus twice your Intelligence modifier (minimum of 1). Materials for this study cost an additional amount of gold pieces equal to 4 times the cost of the toolset. Upon completion of this study, you gain proficiency with the tools and know how to use them. You do not know every singular product, recipe or fabrication process associated with the craft, but have a basic understanding of these aspects.
