There are four rules to magic: Magic is powerful. Magic is corrupting. Magic is addicting. Magic draws the denizens of the Twisting Nether to those who wield the arcane.
Those rules you can always guarantee. Those rules will govern your destiny if you chose to continue down the path as a mage.
If you're foolish enough to ignore this warning, then come speak to me inside the library wing of the abbey in Northshire. I'll be waiting for you upstairs.
