Spell of sending
An expedition recently rediscovered the spell of sending to some ruins from the time of the Ancient Empire. For the longest time, it was rumoured that the ancients had a spell that enabled them to communicate over unlimited distances instantly. Still, with the fall of their empire, most of their advanced magic was lost. The art of magic was almost forgotten, only kept alive in small communities. The expedition that found the scroll that contained the ancient spell was led by a member from the Ruxmer family but contained members from almost all nations; it was only the Principality of Clifia and Ibraghian Theocracy that decided not to collaborate and instead lead their expedition who did clash with the Ruxmer expedition.
The spell allows the sender to send several words each casting, with the minimum required usage of magic allowing for the caster to send up to 25 words with higher amounts of magic allowing for more words each sending. No maximum has been found, and the current cap seems 100 words.
The downside of the higher amount of words each casting is that it leaves the caster drained of energy, although if the one receiving the message replies and is a mage themself, they can add some of their magic to the spell, and the drain will not be as tough.
The spell draws power from the caster's own magical energy.
The expedition to the rediscovered ruins started in 1129 and concluded with the discovery of the scrolls with the spell in 1141.
