The people of this town are ridiculously superstitious. Magience appears to be shunned here, and even asking about it seems enough to get one kicked out of the local boarding establishment. Tomorrow I will go in search of the rumored rich cache of flux in an abandoned local castle. With any luck, I will find it quickly and be able to return to more civilized locales. On the bright side, I did meet some new companions who also intend to visit the castle on some quest for a local man. At least I’ll have company. They also seem to be thankfully unconcerned with the flux.
