And now it’s time for another addition of “I never noticed that before”

In the Magus Commerce Exchange, Dalaran, there is a shop called the Scribes’ Sacellum. It is here that scribes can learn their craft and buy their needed supplies. It’s a well staffed, well stocked little shop. And holy crap is it a tall store. I was in there this morning, and I was reminded of a fairly true principle–most people just don’t ever bother to look up. Because I looked up. And what I discovered is that the Scribe’s Sacellum (sacellum by the way means small, usually unroofed, chapel consecrated to a divinity) extends up and up and up, and the walls are lined with books. In fact, you know what it reminds me of is that room in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, the one where Charlie and his granddad drink that stuff that makes them float way up to the top where the fan blades are. Except the Scribes’ Sacellum doesn’t have giant fan blades at the top of it. It also doesn’t have any of that cool flying-inducing beverage.
In addition to this rather extensive library, there is a woman standing in the back of the Scribes’ Sacellum named Theresa Wolf, who carries the title Loremaster. It would appear that this woman’s sole responsibility to conjure a spell that moves books from the shelves down below in the lower part of the shop, up into the very tippy top parts of the shop, ostensibly re-shelving them. It’s hard to tell if that’s what actually happens because once the book gets all the way to the top it just disappears. I don’t know why but it was really captivating to watch.
Anyone else noticed anything like this lately that they’d care to share?
