When you cast this spell you specify a range less than or equal to 60 feet and touch a writing surface, such as a piece of paper, a book page, or table top. Any words spoken within direct, unobstructed line-of-sight of the writing surface are then written there in a language of your choice that you are capable of reading.
The spell terminates either at the end of its duration or when the writing surface is covered with text. An object may hold ten minutes of normal conversation between five people for each square foot of surface it possesses, such as a typical sheet of paper. Many mages make use of this spell for the writing down of contracts, recording magical research notes, or spying upon others conversations.
Material Component: A jar of ink. The ink is consumed by the spells casting.
