Orgone, also referred to as Mana, is the conduit through which the power of the cosmos flows, focused through a sorcerer's will. Ritual practitioners must draw on this reserve of power in their souls to make a magic spell work. Spells require a constant infusion of Orgone through rituals that are performed inside a transmutation circle, which require a number of ingredients and can last anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours depending on the spell.
Spells demand higher amounts of orgone the more advanced they become. This generally requires more orgone than the respective mage contains, and require the assistance of other mages. These mages would add their own orgone to the spell, combining their power together to complete a ritual. Their are a number of problems that must be surmounted before this process can be completed. These have solutions, but all come with various issues.
Each mage works within their own transmutation circle using their own materials. This process can be expensive and time consuming to gather the necessary ingredients.
The mages must be NSYNC with each other in regards to incantations and timing. One mistake can short-circuit the spell, requiring the mages to start over with new ingredients.
Mages need a way to connect to each other's circles in order for orgone to flow freely between them, similar to a switch or router. Multiple participants also build up a lot of heat, requiring a heat sink.The solution to this would be similar to a layer 3 switch, which connect all mages to each other and absorbs excessive heat, fulfilling both requirements.
An obvious solution that would avoid these complications would be mana-batteries. These are containers that hold Mana within them to be used at a person's convenience. These take the form of specially built items such as jars or even familiars. When someone needs a power boost, they simply use one of these items in a spell, giving them the extra Mana boost that the ritual requires.
As magitech is a part of this society, it would be natural for technology to move in this direction. They have been applied to power advanced magi-technology, such as automated machines and such. What can batteries have that would make it insufficient to fill this role of replacing mages in rituals?
