    So I can't cast permanent duration?
  3. Cedric

    Correct Gilwing. It is disallowed per the Alliance by-laws.

    Sorry. This is the first time a National Event is allowing any chapters scrolls (not just the mist touched ones). Didn't know the bylaws allow for rit scrolls to move from chapter to chapter except for perm scrolls.

    They don't. Only exception is Nationals, and I think this is only the second where it's allowed?

    But yeah, you can't normally cast a scroll from one chapter (say, Denver) in another (Seattle). You CAN use Reagents from all over though.

    I am a ritual marshal.
