“I have,” although she wouldn’t have yet if she’d known he was going to invite her dungeon delving. “Cantrips are Dancing Lights, Guidance, Message, and Stabilize. First circle spells are Burning Hands, Inflict Light Wounds, and Grasping Corpse. Second circle spells are two Bestow Insight. Plus for Witch reasons I can Charm any animal or humanoid once a day per creature, Levitate once per day total, and Feather Fall at will.”

Geb is actually very disappointed in her that she already prepared spells instead of checking what was needed, but there are reasonable explanations like "she needs to prepare at dawn like a cleric instead of whenever she wants like a sensible person."

He will therefore ask.

"Why did you prepare spells?"

"...Well, partly it's that I was very excited about magic research, and partly it's that back home consulting anyone on what spells I prepare would have been a bad idea and I've built some bad habits."

He nods. She shouldn't show him the spells yet, but -

"Grasping Corpse and Bestow Insight?"

"Bestow Insight is an Enchantment spell that copies expertise from the caster to the recipient in a specific area. Like, if I cast it on a peasant who'd never even seen someone cast a spell before, I could still give them a working knowledge of how spells are cast such that they'd have at least a chance of recognizing most common spells by their verbal and somatic components. I...don't actually know how it interacts with time travel, if I could give you a basic overview of, say, modern advances in necromancy, or the geography of the Mechitar of my time, etcetera. But it seems plausible. Grasping Corpse is less interesting than that, I think, in this situation, it just fleetingly animates a dead body just enough to grab at someone, doesn't even count as creating an undead."

Geb is going to discard all of his prior plans to sit staring into space for a moment.

"We are not going on a dungeon run today," he informs her.

"Canceled, put off until tomorrow, or some third thing I'm not thinking of?" 

Permalink

"Tomorrow, unless something else unexpected occurs. We still need money."

"Right, that makes sense. The spell is of limited duration," she warns him.

"I can write down my thoughts under the spell's effect."

"Excellent. Say when."
