We propose new summary statistics for intensity-reweighted moment stationary marked point processes with particular emphasis on discrete marks. The new statistics are based on the $n$-point correlation functions and reduce to cross $J$- and $D$-functions when stationarity holds. We explore the relationships between the various functions and discuss their explicit forms under specific model assumptions. We derive ratio-unbiased minus sampling estimators for our statistics and illustrate their use on a data set of wildfires.
