Decoding the Book of Ancients​

Once again a summons went out all over the land, we were needed to assist with decoding a Ancient Book. All gather at Luna bank, awaiting the open gate to the event. Most felted lost when they realized that this was not the sort of event they were used to. Where we went from the huge number of people in the beginning to only a handful at the end.

Trinsic Jones: Hello everyone! Thank you for coming tonight! Many here tonight! I am in need of your help! During our time apart I have asked our scholars help in coming up with a spell to decode the book of ancients.

A Rosetta stone Spell of sorts. They have since traveled to some of our towns in search of the answer. Seeking help from the mages I ask that you go to them and retrieve the words of power so that we can once and for all decode this ancient book!

The first one can be found in Trinsic, in the company of mages. In fact, you will find the others to be in the company of mages as well. However, I am sure the one in Trinsic may know what town to go to next. Once you have spoken to all the Scholars, return to me with the words of power.

The first to return with the knowledge written in a book will receive honorable mention in the form of a plaque placed in the Reward Hall! Now go on! Find the first Scholar in Trinsic!

With those words toss to the winds we were off.

A copy of above was emailed to you and also there is a book in the mailbox at the hall from Drakelord, Rillao was kind enough to make it and dropped it off for me.
