Sing lustily and with good courage.
Be aware of singing as if you were half dead,
or half asleep:
but lift your voice with strength.
Be no more afraid of your voice now,
nor more ashamed of its being heard,
than when you sang the songs of Satan.
Juris and Marius entered the spellshop. Juris purchased a spell scroll containing Tread and Marius purchased one containing Transmute. Marius read his spell scroll gaining its knowledge and then Juris did the same with his newly purchased one and the one he had gotten in trade with Marius. He added their knowledge to his slowly increasing pool of spells. They both left the shop after giving their thanks to the owner.
Olo walks in, grabs Mindlash, Telekinesis, and Flight. Pays the shopkeeper the 720 gold, reads his new spells and then falls to a knee as the sheer influx of power surges through him. He quickly adjusted, smiled to the clerk and thanked them on his way out.
