In 769 GUE Berzio was an obscure, little-known thaumaturge who had
lived for years in his own self-made workshop, often going for days
without food, drink, or sleep, but in that year he made a discovery
that would change the world. He created the means by which magical
Presence of any of the lesser spells could be transferred from a
scroll to a specially impregnated paper by use of a simple spell, which
named after his dog, Gnusto. This paper, in turn, held the Presence
the Incantation had been finished, solving the major problem in spell
production. The euphoria which greeted this discovery was tempered by
finding that very powerful spells could not be transferred in this way.
Nevertheless, this gave rise to spell “books,” which were capable of
permanently holding dozens of spells and were produced in great number.
Thaumaturgy had yielded its second great money-making product, building
foundation for an entire new industry. And In time, auto-gnustoing
possible, with spells that automatically transferred themselves into
Berzio quickly gained a reputation as a great thaumaturge, and was
honored by being the source of the name of the first magic potion, the
BERZIO potion, which obviates the need for food and drink.
