A scroll is a heavy sheet of fine vellum or high-quality paper roughly the size of a piece of modern notepaper (about 8 1/2 inches wide and 11 inches long), which is sufficient to hold one spell. The sheet is reinforced at the top and bortom with strips of leather slightly longer than the sheet is wide. A scroll holding more than one spell has the same width (about 8 1/2 inches) but is an extra foot or so long for each extra spell. Scrolls that hold three or more spells are usually fitted with reinforcing rods at each end rather than simple strips of leather.
To protect the scroll from wrinkling or tearing, the scroll is rolled up from both ends to form a double cylinder. (This also helps the user unroll the scroll quickly.) The scroll is placed in a tube of ivory, jade, leather, metal, or wood. Most scroll cases are inscribed with magic symbols which often identify the owner or the spells stored on the scrolls inside. The symbols often hide magic traps such as glyph of warding or fire trap spells.

There is no Scribe Scroll feat within the Chronicles of Arn. A scroll is not designed to store magical energy(as the material is ill-suited to hold magic for any significant amount of time) rather just the formula for how to focus the energy at the disposal of the mage into a specific fashion. One can create single-use enchanted items, called [[|Token|Tokens]] , which essentially replicate the same idea that 'Scribe Scroll' was attempting to fulfill.
