Read PHB

<t>I think most of the questions raised here can be answered by reading the appropriate PHB sections on deciphering spells, learning spells, etc...and the section on Scrolls. I believe it is pages 47-48 in the 2nd printing.<br/> <br/> I'll be back later today to address some of the specific question...

New contributions

I'm back writing a little. Gave Steve 11 new magic items last week. I think they are going in M&T 2.

Got a few more to send him plus at least 3 new monsters.

Sure Lord Dynel, happy to do so. This is going to be long-winded, so bear with me.
