Yes, you can refund CP from the change of Extended.
Moving CP: I think that there should be a cost, but it should be possible. As to the what the cost is, I haven't a clue.
Gaining CP: Yes, I love that idea! Thanks!

Emlightened casts Transcribe. Success!
Two books lay where one used to be.

Emlightened ranks up to 3!


You didn't miss Enchant; I was just a bit optimistic that what it did was clearish from the context. Basically, the idea of Enchant was that you can use it to store a spell in an object (the next spell that is cast on it), and the object continuously/spontaneously but repeatedly casts a weak version of the spell. Risky, but worth a shot.

Also, yay! Rank 3!

I go into a house and take a plate out (using Minor Telekinesis), and set it outside on the ground. I then cast Enchant then Summon Food on the plate, hoping for a juicy steak (or a cake) to pop up sometime soon.

Aww, bread?

I feel something from a house that now apparently exists brush against my mind, and step inside (with my bread on Floaty). Seeing no light anywhere, I cast Enchant then Enchant then Glow on Floaty, and proceed.

Spoiler:
I wait for a nice juicy steak to appear on the plate. I can just imagine it now: the pink side of raw, the meaty side of meaty, the tender side on both sides. I close my eyes for a brief moment and, magically, a loaf of bread appears on the plate! Aww. Oh well. I take my notebook out of my mouth and put it atop Floaty, before tossing the bread on top, hoping that nobody notices the bite marks.

Actually, that works quite well! I put the restof the stuff atop Floaty, and hope I trained it well enough to not fall over.

Soon, I feel something from a nearby house brush against my mind. The house is eerie: whilst all of the nearby buildings are dishevelled, broken and rubble, this house looks to be in prime real estate condition. I cautiously step inside, casting Enchant twice on Floaty then casting Glow on it to light my way with. Hopefully someone kind awaits us.

-------
CP group quest the first
Requirements: (At least)
2 willing people.
1 weapon.
1 loot agreement.

Details:
Your mission is to ultimately uncover the why/how of magic's advent. If successful, each teammember will receive 10CP. More CP may be gained throughout the group quest's duration. The very first task is to gain information - right now, you hardly know where to start looking, not to mention how to look for it.

I cast Hover and move towards the people carrying coins.
I offer 2 coins for any information they have about the magic's advent, but I try a new Mind Trick spell to convince them to give me 2 coins plus the information instead.
I cast Improved Senses on my Raven and send him to look for sources where magic could originate from.

Saving my CP.

Also: I'm doing this quest alone. Anyone who joins me will have to deal with me, go find your own group. I probably won't receive the reward though as I don't fulfill all requirements.

I momentarily contemplate the prettiness of my accidental wilderness before being interrupted by a high pitched chiming.
Bing! New group quest notification !
Making a mental note to come back and finish this garden properly, I investigate the source of the notification. A luminescent message appears to have manifested right next to me, detailing the mission and current participants.
Hmmmm... Come to think of it, where this magic comes from is a pretty good question, and working together to unravel the mystery does make sense given the hugeness of the task. Yeah, I'll join in.
The mission statement mentions need for a weapon ? Peculiar, but better safe than sorry.
Reaching towards the nearest tree, I grow a quarterstaff out of its trunk and set off in search of ODF who seems to have also risen to the challenge.

Going over the requirements for the quest, I realize that in addition to a weapon we also will need a loot agreement. Ripping a page from my book, I scribble down a few lines.

Loot agreement
The members of the group will agree
that any loot is divided by the following method:


I pause, trying to think of any clever ways to distribute loot, but no ideas make themselves known. Eventually, I shrug and continue writing:

somitomi will divide any loot we get
They seem trustworthy.

Signed:


And with a flourish, I cast Signature on the scrap of paper, before handing it off to the nearest member of our group.

(note that my handwriting would be tiny due to current shrinking effect on my person)

Ooh! Magical floaty quest thing to distract from the magical homely house thing! And... fighting? Okay!

I cast Transform on Floaty to turn it into a nice large bag. We can use it as a group inventory later if anyone wants to.

Now... Hnng. Time for some dangerous magic. I walk outside, then stand in plain view of the gathered quest-group. I cast Enchant on my paws and claws, then cast Shapeshift on them. Hopefully I'll now have two new weapons, complete with retractable opposable thumbs!

Spoiler:
I creep further into the house, and push open a door. I step outside through it - apparently I'd just walked straight through to the back door? I'm fine with that.

Suddenly, a loud noise bursts out behind my ear! Aah! A quest! Kill it kill it kill it! Oh, wait, it's just a quest. Okay!

Hmm. A weapon? Eh, someone else can cover that. "But who can we ask about what's happened? Hmm, if only this magical quest scroll was ale to magically answer my question..." I think aloud. "Oh well! Time to do this the new-fashioned way!"

I transform Floaty the Magical Brick of Glowing into Floaty the Magical Bag of Not Being a Brick and also Floating and Glowing, and set off towards where I see the most magical glowing quest things.

Seriously, when do these things disappear?

Hmm... Weapons mean fighting. Fighting means killing and tasty juicy succulenty meaty meat. Umm... Fighting means defence and attack and not killing but being merciful and candelabras. Yep. That sounded better. So that means I need a weapon.

I hold up Front Paw #1 and Front Paw #3 (it got demoted after losing a fight with a rabbit), and decide on them. Perfect! I cast Enchant on my paws (all four), then cast Shapeshifting on them. Hopefully this will work...

They give you 2m, convinced of your need of it for your quest. Through a discussion with them, you find out that their theories are as follows:
An effusive sort of radiation unleashed magic as the antithesis to energy as known before on the planet.
Magic is some super-sped up sort of evolution that came about during some top-secret project gone very, very wrong.
Aliens. You know, with the cow-abduction and everything.
Lawrencelot casts Improved Senses. You get lucky.
Your familiar easily takes to the skies, in its natural element. After awhile, it returns with intelligence. Now what?

look for quest, either find hidden treasure, or take out particular target, its time to really put my skills to the test.

How are you looking for this treasure or target?

To prepare for the quest, I create a magical weapon.

ODF casts Summon Weapon. Fizzle.
You get a nerf-foam-material in the shape of a sword. Not so magical, unfortunately.

A quick growth of plantlife takes place, forming around the dwelling, but it's hardly a garden. At least it's pretty.
I momentarily contemplate the prettiness of my accidental wilderness before being interrupted by a high pitched chiming.
Bing! New group quest notification !
Making a mental note to come back and finish this garden properly, I investigate the source of the notification. A luminescent message appears to have manifested right next to me, detailing the mission and current participants.
Hmmmm... Come to think of it, where this magic comes from is a pretty good question, and working together to unravel the mystery does make sense given the hugeness of the task. Yeah, I'll join in.
The mission statement mentions need for a weapon ? Peculiar, but better safe than sorry.
Reaching towards the nearest tree, I grow a quarterstaff out of its trunk and set off in search of ODF who seems to have also risen to the challenge.

On second thought, if I'm to be a wizard, I might as well look the part. I alter my current clothes into an emerald green robe with a pointy hood (Magicka-style)

You obtain a quarterstaff, still warm to the touch from the influence of magic.

Loot agreement
The members of the group will agree
that any loot is divided by the following method:


I pause, trying to think of any clever ways to distribute loot, but no ideas make themselves known. Eventually, I shrug and continue writing:

I cast Transform on Floaty to turn it into a nice large bag. We can use it as a group inventory later if anyone wants to.

Now... Hnng. Time for some dangerous magic. I walk outside, then stand in plain view of the gathered quest-group. I cast Enchant on my paws and claws, then cast Shapeshift on them. Hopefully I'll now have two new weapons, complete with retractable opposable thumbs!

Spoiler:
I creep further into the house, and push open a door. I step outside through it - apparently I'd just walked straight through to the back door? I'm fine with that.

Suddenly, a loud noise bursts out behind my ear! Aah! A quest! Kill it kill it kill it! Oh, wait, it's just a quest. Okay!

Hmm. A weapon? Eh, someone else can cover that. "But who can we ask about what's happened? Hmm, if only this magical quest scroll was ale to magically answer my question..." I think aloud. "Oh well! Time to do this the new-fashioned way!"

I transform Floaty the Magical Brick of Glowing into Floaty the Magical Bag of Not Being a Brick and also Floating and Glowing, and set off towards where I see the most magical glowing quest things.

Seriously, when do these things disappear?

Hmm... Weapons mean fighting. Fighting means killing and tasty juicy succulenty meaty meat. Umm... Fighting means defence and attack and not killing but being merciful and candelabras. Yep. That sounded better. So that means I need a weapon.

I hold up Front Paw #1 and Front Paw #3 (it got demoted after losing a fight with a rabbit), and decide on them. Perfect! I cast Enchant on my paws (all four), then cast Shapeshifting on them. Hopefully this will work...

You made me laugh. I just wanted to lead with that.
Emli attempts to alter Floaty. Poor Floaty.
And then Emli alters herself. How daring.
Spoiler:
The brick's shape distends and grows hollow, the space developing magically within as Floaty turned lighter and obtained storage space.
The change to your paws is disturbing, especially since it feels all sorts of wrong. You almost instantly shake off the spell, before it can settle properly. Shapeshifting is a very challenging spell to get right, but you feel like you were close. There had to something you missed.

Transform discovered!

A foam sword surely still counts as a weapon, and thus fulfills the requirement for the quest.

I cast improved Senses on my Magic Sight, and then try to see if there is any direction where magic seems to flow from more than others.

I take the paper, express gratitude at the trust bestowed upon me by the quest party and cast Signature on it. I'll try my best to share whatever we may find. Speaking of finding stuff, I cast Magic Sight in the hopes of that helping us in finding the source of all this magic we've been using. I propose the group cast Transcribe on some pieces of paper for communication, should we split up for some reason.

I choose Adept again as a customization (-3 CP).

Your familiar easily takes to the skies, in its natural element. After awhile, it returns with intelligence. Now what?

Does this mean my Raven is intelligent? Or that it has information?
Either way, I ask the Raven if he has an idea of where magic came from.

Cast Mind Trick to convince one of the people I talked to to fix the house I was fixing earlier.
I try a new spell Clone to clone myself.
I cast Improved Senses on myself and my clone (if successful, else just on myself) to find the nearest library or university, then walk in that direction if successful.
