Assignment One - Mirror Of Corwin
You could easily escape the trolls with the mirror by naming any safe place and going through the mirror. Since I found the mirror just sitting there I would guess that somebody escaped that way. The problem is if you escaped that way you'd have to leave a REALLY great magic item behind. What I would say would depend on the time of year and day and time it was. I would say something like "mirror, show me Hunter Mowbray's office" and I would see my dad's office.
The following is a short bit of how it would probably play out:
ME: DAD !
DAD: Duncan ? Why are you sticking your head into my office ?
ME: I'm on this hill beinmg chased by some mountain trolls. Could you apperate out here and get me ?
DAD: I'll be right there.
A moment later, well before the trolls have caught up, dad appears.
ME: Thanks dad. < and I pick up the mirror >
DAD: What are you doing with that ?
ME: It's called the Mirror of Corwin and it's how I called your office. I could have just climbed through it, but I thought it was to valuable to leave behind.
Dad apperates and side-along apperates me with him.
I now own the mirror of Corwin
