Alright, her goes nothing, @Left4Cake
After spending a considerable amount of time in town showing Kryter the basics of magic usage, stressing much like martial arts focus, breathing, meditation and the like Artis finally graduates her to actually starting to use some basic spell work only to find that he doesn’t have the tools he needs in the town. As he explained to Kryter the night before, it was imperative that she make her own spell book, it required ones own magic and was often a first lesson, well preparing to make it. So thus, Artis had gone around town looking for some of the supplies only to be told that the Stowerling Citadel was the nearest place of any size that they would have a chance of getting what they needed.
The Citadel was largely a town built around a garrison used for trade between the neighboring kingdoms, it was operated by the Kingdom of Thaentis as one of the most eastern outposts of the kingdom. Beyond the Erast Forest to the east began the planes that divided Thaentis from the Realm of Dusnain. Though there was nothing directly wrong with going to the other kingdom, Artis had been through it and it was rife with mistrust of outsiders, due to a good number of local troubles of their own.
Upon finding this information out, he stopped by Kryter’s room at the inn that evening and knocked on the door to discuss what they were to do.
