The Mage Book is a consumable item which grants the user a Skill beyond their maximum number of Skill slots, lasting until the end of the game, unless a mush uses Icon Transfer which erases all the human abilities on both bodies involved.

While displaying the same Public log messages as any other "Book", even when read, they are not to be confused with Manuals, which are not single-use, free to read, and merely provide tips about certain tasks.

Each character is limited to the use of one Mage Book per game: Icon Confirm: Can transfered people that had read a Mage Book read another on their new body?Message for characters who have already read one Mage Book
