Better the wall.

Tal raises an eyebrow. "I thought you loved the idea of learning to cast spells."

"Sure, but I'm realistic about it," you say. "It always came with a price for the ancients. Best to not rack up debts too quickly." (Increased Caution.)

Tal nods. "Good. Keep that pessimism. Might save your life someday."

You take a look around the classroom. On the blackboard is an illustration of how automation magic works: arrows are drawn from the Eternal Storm down to a stick-figure mage, then from the mage to a blocky stick-figure golem. From there, wavy lines radiate back to the Eternal Storm, which gets more scribbly where the lines reach it. You study the details of the diagram in case it might be useful for learning automation spells later. (Gained Automation.)

There is just one skeleton in the room, crumpled behind the lecturer's podium, wearing gray robes and a conical hat. The skull under the hat is broken due to some ancient trauma.
You eye the conical hat. It's probably magical, but you aren't certain how it would look with the rest of your attire.

What do you look like?

1.Bookish and spectacled.
2.Rugged and adventurous.
3.A snappy dresser, popular about town.
4.I dress all in black.

3. What kind of aspiring mage doesn't carefully follow all the fashion trends before going into dangerous ancient ruins?

We're a snappy dresser.

Though your parents are themselves of modest means, you've always thought that a good outfit is essential. A sharply dressed person can often make friends in unexpected places.

(Gained Charisma.)

What exactly does your outfit look like right now?

1.A bright-yellow shirt and a large feathered hat.
2.The faux-military uniform of a noble duelist.
3.A long, emerald-green velvet dress and an antique pendant.
4.A cute skirt-and-blouse combination I designed myself.
