Some say the blade is cursed and brings despair to any who own it, others believe that it is merely coincidental misfortune.
It is a small, lively town like so many others. Do you wonder who are the movers and shakers here?
Magic is like alcohol, the more that is used, the more it causes a hangover later on and the less judgement one has when using it. If one waits a while after casting a spell, things "detoxify." A cantrip or two is like a sip of weak beer, whilst a large creation spell is like a bottle of vodka. Cast something too big and you can die from magic intoxication.
