“Let me see here, I think I can just read this,” said Destis the mage to his fellow wizard, Chalk.
With a faint glow that lit up the wily magic-user’s face, Chalk could tell that the text had some good information on it.
“Hey watch the light!” shouted Koram, “there are orcs about!”
In the darkness a howl of triumph and coarse, guttural yells indicated that an orc warband was near.
“Well sure, either this spell that is about half as bright as a dying candle or a meathead yelling,either could theoretically let orcs know where we are,” replied Chalk.
Enhance Script (Arcane)
Duration: Ten minutes per level of magic-user.
This spell allows a magic-user to illuminate and read any page of writing that the wizard is holding or at least able to touch. The affected script will glow faintly and become totally legible to the caster, the light shed is very faint however, and not bright enough to use for fumbling around in the darkness, but it is noticeable by others to a distance of 30 feet or so. While this spell will make the script readable in the darkness and legible if smudged (although this spell cannot replace missing or torn pieces of the document) it cannot decipher codes.
