Murlynd waved his metal wand through the air while saying its magic command words. When he was done, he carefully scanned the room while slowly lowering his wand.
Behind him, Yrag and Serten kept Tenser sitting up on the floor, instead of letting him stand, out of concern for how much damage he seemed to be taking.
"I'm fine, really," Tenser said. And it was mostly true.
"If the spell was an illusion, can we just disbelieve in it and push through?" Yrag asked.
"Intellectually, I share your suspicion it was just an illusion," Tenser said, "but the pain was awfully convincing. I fell back right away when I felt it; I can't imagine how painful prolonged contact would be."
"We could just leave it alone," Yrag suggested.
"No. I want that wand."
"We could try to dispel it with magic," Serten offered.
"It's more complicated than that..." Murlynd said, having been listening to them, even though he had not appeared to be.
