DO Is A Most Powerful Spell
Okay Renwick, you take a few weeks to train while everyone else buckles down for the month. Nice going on those spells.
After training, you head on over to Ye Potione Guilde, the new HQ of the Potion Guild in Grito. Master Steve is overseeing the construction. When you go to find him, he's currently overseeing the installation of a new 'foosball' table in the Masters Lounge.
"Uh, hey there Rodrick. Yeah you wanna trade some spells? That's pretty cool, I got some good stuff now. Hey guys, don't play foosball without me yet! I got dibs on the first game!"
You head over to Steve's huge new office. It's sort of weird to see this quasi-chubby, pimply faced 19 year old behind a massive oak desk with a big sign that reads
Master Steve, MPG
Guildmaster of the Grito Potion Guild
"Ye Potione Guilde"
'WE DOIN IT RIHGT' is apparently the new motto or slogan here, or something.
Anyway, Steve tells you he'll trade spells one for one. "Wow Rodri.. oh, right, hey sorry about that I'm not so good with names. Renwick? Renwick. You got some good spells here it looks like. So let's trade and stuff. Hey, Ventriloquism! That's a prety cool spell, don't you think? Yeah I'd like that one. Detect Magic... I got that one too! Hey where'd you go to Magic User school? I trained right here in Grito with Master Vrill. He was a pretty good teacher. He knew lots of great spells and did alchemy and stuff. I got an email from him from Hell! It sounds like he's not really having a great time down there. Not too many spells, owlbears, that kinda stuff."
Steve gets back to looking at your book. "So okay, Ventriloquism. Read Magic, nope I got that one too! Wizard Mark. Hey Renwick what's your wizard mark look like? Mine is this flask I drew that has scary eyes kinda like Caspar the ghost? I dunno, I just drew it one day and I was like, hey, that's a good wizard mark for me. Master Vrill didn't think it was so good, but you know the Magic User's Wizard Mark Rule: Every Magic-User gets to make their mark! So that's mine. Anyway, I got that one... Identification too... I've ID'd lots of stuff. I once ID'd a Ring of Protection +2! You know, to help your saving throws? That's a pretty good magic item. Master Vrill found it on a module he did a way back. He got like 2000 xp for it! Now that I'm like a Master, I don't know if I'll get to go on too many more adventures, but that's okay. I got some more spells to learn. Oh, oh right." Back to your book.
Steve likes Ventriloquism and Strength, so you can pick two 1st levels or one 1st and one 2nd from Steve's list (only spells you don't have are shown)
1) Sleep, Shield, Improve Sales I, Friends, Detect Owlbears, Feather Fall
2) Good Friends, Melf's Acid Arrow, Web
"I can't wait til I get 5th level. I bet you can't either, huh? 3rd circle spells are pretty good. I wonder what it'd be like to cast a 4th circle, no, wait, a 5th circle spell! I bet you'd feel pretty powerful."
Steve fails to learn both spells (BR 86, 79). "Oh well. That blows. Well it was cool hanging out with you. If you get a new level maybe we can trade some more spells? You're a pretty cool guy. Hey, you want a coupon for two free Potions of Healing? You still go on modules and stuff, so you better have some healing so you don't die." Master Steve gives you a coupon you can redeem at the front desk for two free Healing Potions.
