    1. Our master is blind, so its only natural he developed some basic superpowers to defeat ruffians.
    + We dont want our existence known to these Mithridactics.
    + Its safe to assume that Imbeyal doesnt want us involved.
    + more personal drama if something happens to our master.
    -The information we want is about our master being recalled. Yet, he doesnt want to share that story.

    Can we just shoot a few spells and then run for it? Or shoot a few spells back while running for it?

    As a necromancer I don't think we have any spells which can be 'shot'. Unless you count animating a dead bird and flinging it at the opponent.

    Anyway, I vote 1

    That *really* is up to the setting. City-wide life drain is also necromancy, as is flaying away the flesh of your foes with your gaze alone.

    I agree with this. Furthermore, even if you intend on taking our master down in some way, Sith-style, now is just not the time. First, whoever is chasing him thinks that we are a nobody, they likely assume we are an envoy according to Imbeyal. Second, while I'm sure he probably has some ulterior motives and is likely keeping a few details from us, I don't really see what exactly we'd do about it by getting involved in this little skirmish that he can likely easily handle.

    Also, a little detail stood out to me:

    He didn't say that he lacks eyesight, rather, that he lacks eyes. Given the nature of our school of magic, involving flesh as much as it does, perhaps our master plucked his own eyes out to augment his power in some way.

    Edit: Actually, I've changed my mind. We are under no obligation to follow his order, and in all honesty, I kinda do want to learn more about our master's situation, as well as any potential details that he may be keeping from us - details that I am certain he is downplaying. If it suddenly puts us on the Mithridatic's radar, then so be it. Being a Wizard is not for the timid. :obviously:

    As far as I understood, our master is simply undead.

    Two people can share the same goal without being allies.

    You deserve a bethestard tag.

    root, started reading Blindsight with Jukka Sarasti (decorated hard scifi novel... supposedly). Its not going well. Is it gonna get better later?

    edit

    Blindsight gets better towards the middle. Decent first contact exploration with a bit of xcom fanfic, a bit dumb and the characters suck though.

    edit

    Finished the book. Its barely decent, nah, actually wouldnt read again if it was a full novel. Chars mostly cardboard, unrealistic, start and ending shit. The good stuff happens in the middle. But there is also plain dumb stuff, spoilers, aliens can turn invisible by moving only in the saccadic pauses of the human eye movement. Except that would not turn them invisible but only static and only to a minimal degree. The vampire shtick is also pointless and retarded.
