[Maginius Kaentao Maous, Spell Library]
Tall, elegant columns carved like intermingled two-headed serpents rise to the ceiling, which itself is a dizzying distance above. Circular shelves contain thousands upon thousands of books, most of which are off-limits to the casual browser. Scribes constantly scurry here and there, cataloging and arranging the contents. Near the entrance is a red velvet partition, where those visitors interested in viewing books up close have to register. You also see the Archmagus Fleintoore, and an elegant rosewood sign. Obvious exits: northwest, out.


   --== Maginius Kaentao Maous:  Exclusive Spell Services ==--

We offer two special services for magicians of all types:

 * Spell Erasure -- we can retrain you to forget spells you no longer
                    desire.  The price of this service is subject to
                    variable fees, please discuss your options with
                    our staff.
 * Exclusive Library -- for a mere two(2) platinum, we will allow
                    you access to our library for one hour's time.
                    Our library contains volumes you will not find
                    anywhere else in Elanthia.
      ASK ARCHMAGUS FLEINTOORE ABOUT SERVICES for more details.

Services of Archmagus Fleintoore

"Very well, Grasshopper." says Fleintoore. "We offer an exquisite array of services unique to Throne City that you will not find anywhere else in Elanthia. There's far too much detail to even briefly review, so ask me about ERASING or the LIBRARY, and I'll be happy to explain more on any subject. Bear in mind that these services are not cheap and may require a considerable amount of money to acquire." Fleintoore grows quiet, patiently awaiting you to make a choice.

Spell Erasing

ASK ARCHMAGUS FLEINTOORE ABOUT ERASING

Fleintoore nods and says, "Spell erasure is unique process in which our scribes help you forget the knowledge of spells you may no longer wish to keep. For practical purposes, you may not erase a spell that is a prerequisite for other spells you already know -- for example, you may not erase Lightning Bolt if you know Chain Lightning. The fee for this service is partially subsidized by the guilds and is variable based on a number of factors. You'll no doubt be happy to know that we donate five percent of all sales of this service to the continued restoration and beautification of historic Throne City. If you decide on a spell you wish to forget, we'll sit down together and calculate the fee."
[To purchase this service, type CHOOSE <spellname>. You will lose that spell from your spellbook but will regain the spell slot.]

Cost

As of June 7, 2015 costs have been re-enabled for forgetting spells. The price is calculated from the last time you forget a spell. This system uses real life days. It is only possible to forget 1 spell at a time.

Time Elapsed Cost
0-30 days N/A (Not possible.)
31-159 days ~2 platinum Lirums
160+ days No cost.

Exclusive Library

ASK ARCHMAGUS FLEINTOORE ABOUT LIBRARY

Fleintoore glances toward the other room. "We have one of the most extensive libraries known in all of Elanthia. In addition to having copies of books you may find elsewhere, we have several volumes that we at Maginius Kaentao Maous alone possess. These are extremely rare volumes and we do not allow just anyone to read them, so we must ask a fee of two platinum lirums to enter our library for two anlaen."
[To purchase this service, type CHOOSE LIBRARY. You will be charged two(2) platinum lirums for two anlaen (or ONE HOUR of real time). There is no TDP cost for this service. ASK FLEINTOORE ABOUT BOOKS to get a list of books available in the library at this time.]

See Exclusive Library for the books available here.

Services of Crimson-Robed Mage

Alternate spell preparations can be purchased from a crimson-robed mage located in the Rare Books Room of the Exclusive Library. These preparations require their related Magical feats of Alternative Spell Preparation and/or Silent Spell Preparation.
