“My team and I are heading out to the abandoned mineshaft on the edge of the city in a few days, and I want to be fully prepared.”

“Sure you’re up for that? I know a few adventurers have gone down there and not returned.”

They nodded. “Right, so, where do you want these?”

“The rune of undead protection is for my back, and the healing spells are for my wrists.”
