Scroll, rarity varies
Spells transcribed upon parchments giving the user to use a single casting of the spell upon the scroll.
Scrolls of spell mimicry are advanced forms of spell scrolls that allow anyone who can get their hands on them to cast a bit of magic by only speaking a simple command word set by the original creator of the scroll. Any word can be set as the command word so feel free to use your imagination.
The scroll of spell mimicry can be any spell up to 7th level with a casting time of 1 action or 1 bonus action. The rarity of the scroll depends on the spell level. A cantrip or 1st level spell are common scrolls, A 2nd or 3rd level spell are uncommon scrolls, 4th or 5th level spells are rare scrolls and 6th or 7th level spells are very rare scrolls. There are no 8th or 9th level scrolls of spell mimicry due to the raw power of those spells overwhelming the material used to make the scrolls. Foolish wizards that tried usually lost a limb or even so much as died from the sheer amount of energy used to attempt to create one. This is usually why the spells are just written down and cast by someone with the knowledge to cast it.
Examples: scroll of spell mimicry (fireball - 3rd level) command word: Explode, scroll of spell mimicry (greater restoration - 5th level) command word: Restore.
