"I'll probably do the same. You said they also come in headband form, right?"

Permalink

"Yes. It does want to be something on or around your head. The physical version's usually a belt."

Permalink

"I'll probably end up needing to design a different diagram for every magic item that we can't copy. Maybe I should try copying the earrings first so I know it's something runecasting can do at all; I've never designeded something with mental effects before. Though medallions do something to let the same mind move differently shaped bodies, so it seems likely." But on the other hand she wants a pair of intelligence earrings sooner rather than later.

"I wish my husband were here to get me Church-backed financing for all this..."

Permalink

"Yeah. Bar, I don't suppose you want to buy any magic I can sell you?"

I can pay people for working shifts in the infirmary or as Security personnel.

Permalink

"I guess I could make another healing rock? I don't know how good I'd be at security."

Permalink

:Security shifts are timed such that whoever is present in that capacity will be categorically accurate for the purpose relative to the other patrons.

Permalink

"Can you explain how that works? Do you or someone know in advance who's going to come in? If I sign up for security and it turns out I wouldn't be good at it will I just never get shifts?"

Permalink

:I don't know in advance, nor do I control the door. I can assess you for being competent enough to get shifts at all, and you do qualify, but I can't guarantee that you would immediately get as many shifts as you might want.

Permalink

"Huh. Well, uh, feel free to sign me up for shifts if it's a good time for one while I'm in here. Or do I need to do something to formally get on the list?"

Permalink

There is PAPERWORK.

Permalink

At least it doesn't need to be filled out one letter at a time with perfect line lengths and angles!

Permalink

It does not! Now she has a Security job. She is not called upon to immediately start a shift, though.

Permalink

"Well, now I have at least a possible source of income while I'm in here. I would try designing a spell to get the door to open, but I kind of get the sense that the biggest diagram I could fit in here wouldn't do it."

Permalink

"I'm a little surprised I haven't been noticed missing yet. It's been a while."

Permalink

"I would expect I've been noticed missing too, but I don't think my parents could do anything." Maybe Bella could, but her parents won't know to tell her so she won't know until Saturday, and anyway it might be that none of the magic in Margaret's world can find this place if it doesn't want to be found.

She wonders whether her parents think it's more likely that she ran away from home for some reason, or that she's dead.

"If my lot find me perhaps we can Sending yours."

Permalink

"That's a spell you think might work through the door? Worth a try. And I might be able to do something similar; I don't think we've come up with anything either of our magic systems can do that the other one definitely can't."

Permalink

"Well, I don't know about through the door, it doesn't work through the Dome, but it works plane to plane and if you were neither in here nor in the Dome at the time I'd imagine it'd get where it was meant to."

Permalink

"Huh. That would definitely help, if you can find my home plane with me as a reference. Also, Bar, do you know if magic that works across planes can usually reach people in here?"

Permalink

It varies, with the most common explanation for failure being the time-pause effect.

Permalink

"- damn, that'll be why they haven't found me."

Permalink

"I guess we're on our own for getting out of here, then. At least nobody will think I'm dead. I should start on an intelligence headband and a ring of three wishes."

Permalink

"- with fabric items, I don't know how to make them personally, but you can make magic cloaks and suchlike, and those consume spellsilver but don't have them in the item at the end, the spellsilver's just turned to lead, I think. You might be able to make things that way."
