Spheres (and other geometric solids) are often used to help focus the flows of mana at a mana site
An Auric Horizon mana sphere

Definition

A mana site represents a location where flows of magic are particularly strong. A practised individual can use solutions of rare salts placed strategically throughout the area to cause mana crystals to form. The flows of magic tend to move as they ebb and flow so the methods used to catch them must be continuously adjusted. Many different methods of measuring or focusing the natural flows of magic are used, the most common being mirrors, geometric solids, lenses, and objects such as windchimes whose movements can be interpretted to determine any adjustments that need to be made.

Production

A mana site produces 7 mana crystals.

Downtime Options

There are no downtime options for a mana crystals. It produces mana automatically.

Upgrades

A mana site can be upgraded using mithril obtained from the Bourse. The first time a mana site is upgraded, the owner receives one additional mana crystals from then on, the second time a mana site is upgraded, the owner receives two additional mana crystals. Production increases continue to alternate in this way every time the mana site is upgraded.

To upgrade a mana site requires Imperial Wains of mithril equal to the level the mana site is being upgraded to. So the first upgrade of a starting level 1 mana site costs 2 Imperial Wains of mithril, from 2 to 3 costs 3 Imperial Wains, etc.

Diversification

A mana site cannot be diversified.
