So the group using their animals, search the books. After several minutes, the group find the correct book but it appears to have writing concealed in the text. After several more minutes tying to figure out what to use, the group use a Flame Revealing technique, utilizing hte match they were given. The match instantly sparks aflame before it strikes a surface. They take the flame underneath the pages and reveal the true contents. It is the first script for the Gnome Mage's Guild charter with a picture of two gnomes – one being Garl – and a satyr with the face of Xavius. Throughout the book their is additional writing of comments. It seems Xavius and Garl were arguing and making fun of each other in the margins. Nevertheless, this was not the book Hurrus wanted.

Mar 8th – Wizard Challenge

The group search for the Wizard's Guild in town and discover its was quite ratty. Each of the quest givers had altered pets. Yofi had a Rat in the shape of a Giant Wolf Spider.

So the group approaches each member and asks what their quest is: Tordora wants to summon creatures to help. Namfoodle wanted to know what kind of creatures. After some poor lying, she reveals she's trying to summon fey creatures. Belmor wants to soothe the souls of the dead from the last attacks. Yofi wants to repair the damage to the Arcane Wards in three towers. Between the latter two, the group select Yofi.

They go to the first tower. Namfoodle and Bylandora fly high above. At the top of the tower, they are attacked by 6 Kobold with jasper necklaces that were glowing a darker shade of green. The group land and assist Yofi in repairing the Ward. Luckily the group spot four goblins carrying containers. Namfoodle suspects that its explosive material. This causes Argus to jump from the Tower. Bylandora fearing the worst, tries to shot and an arrow while Namfoodle shots a bullet at the containers. Unfortunately, Argus falls faster than the ammunition and strikes dead center with a destructive wave. This kills the goblins but set off the containers as well, causing massive damage to Argus who barely survives. With the first tower reapired, they proceed to the second tower. Luckily being more prepared, Bylandora and Namfoodle dispatch another 6 kobolds and 4 goblins. Bylandora was quick witted when they approach the third tower and didn't see anyone. She approaches the base of the tower when her sword of warning goes off. Argus and her charge in and dispatch the goblins before a single container explode. The third tower is then repaired and the Wizard Tokens are distributed.

Argus wants the barrels and tries to load them up on his Auroch. She refuses. Using Namfoodle as a translator, they discover that she's not completely bonded to Argus because he was yet to name her. He finally names her Garona. And with that, the group has four unstable containers.
