The spell known to mages as "Read Magic" is a powerful tool.
With such a simple, first-power spell a mage can further his knowledge and
power. It is a hard spell to get as very few prestidigitators begin their
careers with this tool in their books. Without this spell, a mage may not read
any page of magical script other than his or her own without first enchanting
it with this spell. Scrolls become useless for those without such a spell and
those who so not have it can not further their knowledge and must be content
only with the spells they know first off. Unless, of course, they learn it.
The most powerful spellbook in Albinor, acquired though it
was, is useless. Garron Koluna, Mage Prince of Glantri and secret keeper of
this tome, does not have the spell "Read Magic." Longing day after day and
night after sleepless night to open this book and acquire the knowledge within,
he can not. Pining away, he sends a plea for help saying that anyone with this
spell please come to Koluna Castle to teach it. And, indeed, they have come to
They are Veteran Valcor, Veteran/Prestidigitator Saraya and
her sister, Prestidigitator Roxalin. A long way they have come, from Threshold
in Karameikos. And, finally, Mage Prince of Glantri Wizard Garron Koluna may
reap the knowledge from the late Mage Prince of Glantri Wizard Krandor Dakon's
spellbook and become Albinor's most powerful wizard in history!
