This Skill is required for anyone wishing to learn Celestial Magic spells or cast Battle Magic Scrolls. It does not allow you to read Ritual Magic Scrolls. This Skill does, however, allow a character to identify Inscription items as quickly as they can read the Tag.

With this Skill, a character can use Battle Magic Scrolls up to their highest level of Celestial spell Slot plus four. Thus, if a character has the Skill Read Magic and has no Celestial spells, they can use up to and including 4th level Battle Magic Scrolls. If they have at least one 1st level Celestial spell Slot, they can now use Battle Magic Scrolls up to and including 5th level.

To use a Battle Magic Scroll, you must hold the Scroll physrep before you, have enough OOG light to be able to read it, actually read the physrep, state the listed verbal incant, touch a spell Packet to the Battle Magic Scroll, and then throw the spell Packet.
