So.. I'm playing a solo game of Talisman with 15 characters (it's taking ages to play but it's a lot of fun!)
One of my characters decided to buy a spell from the Sorcerer Space. Other shops either tell you what you can buy at what prices (e.g. the stables) or it tells you to draw the cards from the shop's deck. E.g. the Apothecary says "Pay 1,2 or 3 gold, then draw x Cards for each gold you paid."
However, there is not mention of drawing the top card off of the spell deck... so isn't this a bit like visiting the sorcerer and he's massively powerful and capable of casting any spell and asking him for the spell you want?
Or, am I reading too much into this.
My character spent 2 gold to cherry-pick the deck for the spell "Acquisition" and took the spellbook from another character. This is a pretty slick move as the spellbook costs 6 gold... so it's like getting it for 4 gold cheaper and stealing it from someone else.
