Does Mage: The Awakening have official rules for scrolls (containing spells, of course, in the "old school" sense. :)) that perhaps even Sleepers can use? If so, please provide the book title and page number reference. If not, does anyone have a quick but functional house rule for such magic items?

What's a scroll? It's a piece of paper with words on it that, when read, cause a spell to be cast. Sounds like an imbued item with a contingent trigger to me. The Mage: The Awakening core book describes them on page 84, with a reference to the "Imbue Item" rote (Prime •••) on page 225.

    \$\begingroup\$ Keep in mind, though, that such scrolls will still be subject to disbelief and paraox due to the presence of sleepers, so try and keep the effect subtle when imbuing. \$\endgroup\$ – GMJoe Jan 20 '12 at 6:41
