Spell books were most recently sold at the 431 Guildfest at Mystical Machinations.

In addition to holding guild spells, if you have a SCROLL leaf, scrolls can be transferred into them via the scribe command.

Verbs

In addition to TURN, READ, STUDY, OPEN, CLOSE and the neat one ARRANGE there is...

  • CENTER: You come across a section in your spellbook which describes a centering technique used for maximizing one's concentration while working a spell. You decide to try it. Closing your eyes, you inhale slowly and attempt to feel the mana flowing through and around your body, as if you were the heart of the world and all the mana within it flowed outward from your center. It doesn't feel like the spellbook said it should, though. You probably need more practice.
