|Learnt At||100 in magic.items|
|Items Needed||A magical artifact|
Recharge is learnt from the Lecturer in Recent Runes at 100 levels of magic.items. An attempt to recharge an artifact requires some form of power - this can be in the form of purple mineral powder, grey dust or a charged black sea shell. The power is then consumed by the command, adding charges the artifact (or simply crumbling into nothingness) depending on how much power was used. If the amount of powder or dust is not enough to charge an object even once the recharging process is aborted and the recharge is not executed.
Recharging is considered a very dangerous practise and should only be attempted by higher level wizards.
Failing makes the wand or staff explode; as well as destroying the item, it causes sometimes colossal damage to the wizard.
There's rumours that sparkling shelter and other wizard and priests shields may mitigate the damage. And there's that room south of one of the shops in the Sto Lat guild. But who's suicidal and rich enough to check?

- 1: Collatrap's Instant Pickling Stick is much less rare than, say, purple mineral powder.
For what they do, until someone get around to it: http://www.gunde.de/discworld/sekiri/artifacts.html Notes:
- The ring of recall is rumoured to drop you near Cori Celesti. This is fatal, what with the ice giants...
