You say, 'Hail, Mrysila'

Mrysila says 'I am Mrysila, custodian of the [Concordance of Research].'

You say, 'What Concordance of Research?'

Mrysila says 'The 'Concordance of Research' is an aid to those who follow the path of academia. It, and its sister books, 'Runes and Research,' volumes I and II, help those who are [interested] in researching spells.'

You say, 'I am interested'

Mrysila says 'I have several copies of each book. If you want a copy of 'Runes and Research', volume I or II, bring me a lightstone and I will give you whichever book I have more of at the moment. Bring me a greater lightstone, and I will give you a copy of the 'Concordance of Research.'
