Spanreeds

3 posts in this topic

I was reading when I saw a description of spanreeds being put over paper. Then, confused, I looked for fanarts and they were simple pens with the ruby at the end. 

So is that what they look like? I always imagined them like boards, with a clip to hold the paper and the pen being affixed to a piece of metal, like those graph thingies lie detectors use.

The fabrial itself is the stylus, which is independent of the board, or spealing even more strictly a part of the stylus. You can use any board with the fabrial.

The boards are indeeed standardized and do have clips and spirit levels, but they are not Invested. If you want the spanreed to be easy to repair, you will also standardize the stylus and the way the gems attach to it.

Spanreeds are pen-like objects that are placed onto uniform boards to keep consistency between spanreed users. The spanreeds are run by the pairs of gems (typically rubies) that are put into the equivalent of cages.
