Hi there, these are some questions I have based on the current previews of 2e:
At Levels 3, 5, and 7, a magician receives a spell scroll from their mentor. What if you don’t have a mentor? (Mentor is optional during character creation) Do you not get a scroll?
For the scrolls above, the GM decides what spell is on the scroll, and it has to be a spell the magician is ‘capable of casting’. Can’t magicians cast any spell if it’s on a scroll? I thought magicians were only limited when they memorize spells. Should this be ‘capable of memorizing’?
the spell Supernal Vision lets you attune to the ‘magical auras of enchanted items, creatures or places…’ and ‘study magical auras and determine their purpose’.
Does this mean you can both:
a) identify if an item or creature has a magical aura (in other words, ‘detect magic’)
b) identify what magic items can do/what magic powers creatures have?
is there another way to find out what enchanted items can do? can’t you just use them? I imagine this is useful to identify if a potion is poison or beneficial, but what if it is a magic sword?
What types of magical auras can creatures have?
Thanks heaps, I am sure I’m just missing something obvious
