"And are you interested in purchasing a scroll with the spells on, or would you like to copy them directly from my sources into your spell book, like you did last time? While I am happy to have the scroll written for you, it would be better value for you to pay the 'copying' rate."

He sighs broadly and explains  "While don't make anything like as much profit on the copying, I feel  beholden  to offer the service to those who come in search of knowledge.  I benefited from a similar arrangement in my youth with the promise to pass it forward when I had the opportunity."

"Copying like I did before would be preferential, as it would save you the trouble of writing new scrolls. Thank you at any rate."

Jahi nods and responds quickly "Well, all of the spells on your list are available, and can be copied here for the cost of the materials and  a small, 20%, commission."

He pauses to allow the Kitsune to think the offer over, "If you are happy with the terms, I will ask Dru to find the appropriate spells for you."

"I will attempt to copy 7 of the 10 spells then. I will update the list for Dru."

*Water Breathing
*Fly
*Slow
*Haste
*Tiny Hut
*Invisibility Sphere
*Tongues

(All level 3 spells and at your rate would come to 1575gp)

"Excellent.  DRU?  Please will you help this gentleman.  He needs access to our spell books, scribing materials and somewhere to write.  Perhaps here in my office would be most suitable, or maybe one of the work stations in the scriptorum."

Once Dru is ready to help, Jahi nods his farewell and returns to the front of his business.

Dru allows Vun Fain to work in peace.  She spends most of her time in the Scriptorium next door, overseeing the scribes and copyists and  working on a scroll of her own.  However, she pops her head around the door to the office, happy to help the Kitsune find the next spell of to help with the ingredients he needs for the ink.

When he is finished she ask, "Everything done now?"  as she prepares to see the customer through to the front of the shop and onto the exit.

"Yes, Thank you."

Having finished his work, Vun makes sure all of his payments are in order and then takes his leave.

Dru calls out a, "Cheerio."  as Vun takes his leave and then stands on the steps, for a moment or two, watching the children playing in the street.  With a small shake of her head, she returns to her duties.

A young girl runs in from outside.  She stopped to talk to her friends in the street a moment.  "Miss Drusilia, I finded the man.  He made me the bestest one he could."  Susie tells her.  "An' I practiced on the boat ride.  See."  She clumsily attempts a few somatic gestures.  On the third try a small gust of wind ruffles her clothes and knocks the dirt free.

OOC: If Jahi offers, I'm fine with customers using the magical respository.

Drusilla smiles down at the young girl, obviously please to see her."Susie!  We were worried about you .... A Firarm! ... My. ....   Now why don't you come in and have a nice cup of tea and some biscuits.  I am sure there are some biscuits somewhere, if Poppy hasn't eaten them all.""

As the afternoon starts to darken, a hobgoblin often seen in town visits the shop. He starts looking around, showing interest in scrolls.

Drusilla is still in the shop when Karon enters and asks about scrolls.  A slight frown creases her young brow, because he doesn't look like the type of person who normally asks for scrolls, 'still, you can never tell' she thinks, and steps forward with a smile for the new customer.

"What sort of scrolls are you interested in?"

"Hunter's Mercy, Lead Blades, perhaps Aspect of the Avoral?" asks Karon.

Dru furrows her brow, as she thinks through the spells in the repository.

"Ah, correction. In human lands, that last spell is called Aspect of the Falcon. My apologies" Karon adds.

The young girl's eyes light up at the mention of food.  She hurries off to the back, stops halfway there, and comes back to grab the wooden box off the counter before running to the back.

"I am sure there is some pie out there as well, if you want it."  Dru calls after the girl as she runs into the back of the shop, before turning her attention back to Karon.

"We haven't seen her for a while."
  She says conversationally, returning her attention to Karon.  "Come through to the back and I can check in the books.  I  over see the arcane scrolls, but Jahi often buys other scrolls in from people ..."  Leading the way through the scriptorium she guides the hobgoblin into an office and starts looking through one of the ledgers.  "You are in luck," she says making her way across to a scroll rack, "We have one each of Lead Blades and Aspect of the Falcon available.  However, I haven't heard of Hunter's mercy at all."

"The scrolls are 50gp each."  she says still grinning at Susie's excitement over the pie.  "Oh, and there IS an entry for  Hunter's Mercy.  But we have to send out to one of Jahi's special contacts for it so it won't be ready until tomorrow.  It would cost cost 100gp"

In reply to Drusilia of Hunwood (msg # 294):
"Excellent. But 100 gold seems high for the last spell. How many of the Aspect spell do you have in stock?" Karon asks, looking in his purse.

"Just the one.  We rarely carry more than one of any scroll, especially the less usual ones that we need to commission from outside the tower.  And as for the price of the  Hunter's Mercy, we are in the hands of the contractor who scribes it for us.  I suspect that he dislikes indoor work," she adds with a wry smile, "many with your training do."

Looking in another ledger, she nods  slowly to herself.  "I expect we could get one or two more of the Aspect," she says picking up on Karon's contraction of the spell name, "made for us tomorrow, but only one copy of Hunter's mercy.  We only have one person who can scribe it ..."

Karon hands over an Amber piece. "I'll take the Aspect and the Lead Blades now. If you can get two more of the Aspect by no later than tomorrow evening, I'll buy those as well."

Dru takes the amber piece and hands the two scrolls over.  Then  she tells the manhunter,  "I'll send out runners, this evening, to place the orders."
