Terra asks about converting this MOB scenario from Tales 13

My advice would be to not worry about too literal a translation of the scenario, take the situation/story and see how it works with our current understanding of the Malkioni and the HQ system.

I don't think there are any other "Common" grimoires, but we still have very little information about the West, so we might find more as more information comes to light.

It's certainly possible that characters identified as "Wizards" in RQ material are actually Liturgists or Orderlies, who I don't think we understood at all (or certainly not in the same way) back then
