While there is something unsatisfying about a group of adventurers hiding in a cave, this quiet spell at least gives us a chance of catching up with the Professor’s thoughts on the changes that have been going on with him in particular.
As you would expect, he takes a measured approach and sees both pros as well as cons. He can’t help but notice a diminishing of his intellectual capacities…in fact, he can no longer even thought-spell the word properly…and normally, that should be of really deep concern to him. He spent decades honing his mind and filling it with knowledge, after all.
But that, of course, also supplies the counterbalance – over the decades, especially the last few of them, a few physical issues have been creeping in. He had always accepted them as inevitable, but being rid of all of them so suddenly still feels kinda nice, I bet.
More on Thurs…uh, Monday.
