>>1767689Alarm 10 metresLevel 1AbjurationCreates a ~10 metre area of effect, if something that isn't "white listed" by the caster enters the area a loud alarm sounds. Can also be cast as a silent alarm, in which case only the caster will hear the sound.Hold Portal50 metresLevel 1AbjurationSeals a thing that can be opened and shut for a few minutes. Affects: doors, windows, curtains, gates, shutters, and containers. The door can still be broken down.The only possible target for hold portal would be a coffin.

He takes you to a small hovel on the outskirts of town.Inside there lies a table with a bone saw and various human bones."I'm sorry I took the bodies, I want to learn necromancy but no one lets me study cadavers. It's not like anyone was using them! I study as much as I can until I'm caught then I get banished and move onto the next town. Please don't turn me in. I'll pack up and leave Appleby, you'll never hear from me again.">Sorry, the undertaker promised me 50 Talons to catch you. I'm taking you in.>You can't just go around animating the dead, it's a danger to everyone!

And abjuration sucks! Necromancy is a respectable NOBLE school it just happens to have one spell that's sometimes dangerous.">Sorry, the undertaker promised me 50 Talons to catch you.

>>1768775>"You can't just go around animating the dead, it's a danger to everyone! Especially if you're untrained.""Well maybe if study of necromancy was allowed a safer version of the spell could be developed and I could receive appropriate training. I had to teach myself everything because there's no way to find a necromancy teacher!">I've heard enough, I'm taking you in>Animating the dead is immoral, even when it isn't dangerous. I'm taking you to the garrison.>Get out of here, and don't let me catch you doing this again.>How about we don't turn you in and we'll say you owe me a favor?>Give me all your Talons and you're off the hook.>write in

Kay gotta end the session here.Thanks for playing lads.The quest will continue same time next week.
>>1769315lol nice timing, we'll start at the general store next episode.
>>1769321ReeeeeI missed the session
I love this quest, but the time kills me. Nice job OP, fun, heartwarming and interesting.
>>1769338>>1769515Thanks anons. Glad to hear you like it.It's a shame my quest isn't compatible with some readers' time zones.My timezone is UTC/GMT +8 hours.I usually start my quest at 8:00 am Sunday. Which I think is 5:00 pm Saturday on the west coast of USA, and 8:00 pm on the east coast. I try to go for the American time zone since they're the majority of 4chan.
>>1769263> General store
I love this quest and I haven't even taken part in it.Love the style, the setting and the general flow of it.Hope you can get more people in on it with the time shift. (unlikely for me since GMTfag, but I still love reading it more than anything)
