arcanist drow patron?
Faced again with prejudices that cause me to consider and reconsider abandoning my race by permanently changing the pigmentation of my skin. It is more than a disguise and I feel the weight of Shar's eyes upon me even now as I look down on the spellforms that would surely make my visit in Miar Moshea easier, mayhap even escape the Mythal-like sickening effect I felt when entering duchy itself. But I'll never know because I have discovered truth will best serve the virtues. Openly traveling as a drow never stopped Shar nor will not halt me in my quest.
I suspect the elves we met at the Crystal Hill will prove to be individuals of note. They were kind, observed elven customs, knew transportation magics, and seem to reside in a hill of crystal that was our destination point. It was a location that we could gather the most information about because it was significant. I did not deny my drow heritage then nor will I in the future (tears Color spell from spellbook) even if it means paying the ultimate price.
Post Script: Day 125- Efforts to tear sheets from the spell books made during our downtime in Bouvet Keep restored itself the next day. Noted (Mythic)
