Arcane Scrollworks

Ran across this kickstarter today. It ends in a little less than 2 days, in case you might be interested in ordering it as art. Regardless, I thought these were nice visual references for what an arcane scroll might or might not actually look like.

Huh. That's not at all what I imagine them looking like.

I guess it never occurred to me that there would be pictures?

I'm in agreement - I wouldn't have expected pictures. Still, they do look pretty good, but they're not something I would use. There are hundreds of spells so from a 'prop' perspective, having much more general scrolls would be better. Rather than 'burning hands', having a 'fire spell' or 'necromancy spell' would suit me better.

Yeah, the pictures threw me. I always figured that a scroll would be really utilitarian-looking, just because it's a single-use item.

These kinda sorta look like something I'd expect on the pages of a spellbook, maybe.
