How do I account for minor focus components for psychic spells? I’m working on my first psychic spellcaster for a PFS game next weekend, a psychic detective investigator, and I noticed that the Open/Close cantrip still has an brass key (no price or value listed) as a focus component. For an arcane caster, it would be included in the spell component pouch. Do I need to buy a spell component pouch for this character, or is there another way to handle this (in Organized Play)?

I don’t care about the 5gp, but at second level, another 2 pounds of encumbrance on this character is painful.

A spell component pouch weighs 2 lbs itself. And coubts as having ALL spell conponents that dont have a gp value. It should count.

Right - that’s what i’m trying to avoid, 2 lbs for a full pouch, just to get an otherwise-valueless brass key.


Then get a brass key specifically. 1 sp or so should do it. The spell component pouch is a simplification for the 95% of us who'll rather not bother with memorising the list of material components, it's not a requirement.

Edit: Unless PFS has made it so?

Your charachter a home owner? You would have a set of keys for your home. Sinc3 its a focus, you can just pull out your keychain.


Buy pouch. Get key. Leave pouch at home
