"Summoned mounts are convenient... my last real mount got eaten by monsters."
(OOC: We can take no extra day by having Ashnar prep off of one of the other's books. Then that's three, two, two. If Ashna volunteers to prep three of them, then we're ready. Is that OK?)Knight Otu said:(I'll just need to know if we're taking a day for Ashnar to copy phantom mount, or if Tenebrynn and Elektra bear the load of the seven spells for the group. Otherwise, we'll just have to figure out who'll prepare the third spell (probably me).)
(OOC: Hmmm, looks like the exact wording would mean that if your spellbook was destroyed, you would be unable to use a borrowed one. Weird wording--I'll ignore it. I think you still need to spend a day though to learn the spell, even if you don't copy it. But you can't leave til tomorrow when you can reprep anyways, so it'll work)SRD said:Wizard Spells and Borrowed Spellbooks
A wizard can use a borrowed spellbook to prepare a spell she already knows and has recorded in her own spellbook, but preparation success is not assured. First, the wizard must decipher the writing in the book (see Arcane Magical Writings, above). Once a spell from another spellcaster’s book is deciphered, the reader must make a Spellcraft check (DC 15 + spell’s level) to prepare the spell. If the check succeeds, the wizard can prepare the spell. She must repeat the check to prepare the spell again, no matter how many times she has prepared it before. If the check fails, she cannot try to prepare the spell from the same source again until the next day. (However, as explained above, she does not need to repeat a check to decipher the writing.)
(That depends on the definition of "knows," I guess. That was the sticky point with my plan to allow Tenebrynn to prepare secret page out of my blessed book, remember?)Rystil Arden said:(OOC: It's specifically allowed by the core rules--I keep mentioning it every time you guys spend tens of thousands of gold to maintain multiple Blessed Books )
(OOC: True. I would assume that you can know it after one day without also scribing it. And as mentioned, you have to wait til tomorrow anyway to prep the new set of spells, so you have time)Knight Otu said:(That depends on the definition of "knows," I guess.
