How am I ever going to learn enough about earth magic to break through a magical barrier that an Agricolan Prime Mage created? Saeflod scratched his head, searching for inspiration. Without access to an emerald, he couldn't perform a single spell, no matter how basic.
Then, I'll just have to go get one, duh! He shook his head. Come on, focus!
He started on the path to his house, to prepare for the journey.
When he arrived, he went straight to his bedroom, to collect his backpack. He then began to fill it with everything he would need: a bit of food, a flask of water, a large fully charged sapphire, several more small crystals (to use as bugs or simple protection wards), a first aid kit, and a small survival kit.
Next, set off to the armoury. He grabbed a mage's dagger, named for the reservoir full of water running through its center, which gave a water mage the ability to levitate it indirectly. He placed it into his ankle sheath. He swapped his pendant for a charged one, putting the one he'd been wearing into a huge sapphire dotted with slots to insert crystals into, which served as the charging station of all the pendants, enchanted weapons and armor, and reserve gems. He found a spare chain, which he would attach the emerald pendant to, when he had taken it from a Hierdelician. Finally, he took a wand from the shelf and slipped it into the scabbard which hung from his belt, deciding that a staff was too bulky to take with him. After informing Scirdan of his plan for the day, he began the seven hour trip to Hierdelician territory.
