Mage hand

A preserved hand of a mage, usually presented in a box with a glass top.

Each hand bestows its own powers, usually indicative of the powers of the hand's original owner when alive. Sample powers are equivalent to standard metamagic feats, without having to memorize the spells at higher levels. Other effects include not needing one of the three components: V, S, M. Still more effects are equivalent to wands.

These items are very rare, as they require a sufficiently powerful mage to die and for someone to remove his or her hand and preserve its magic.

Mage hands preserved with rings upon them usually are embodied with the power of the ring. This adds to their power and value.
