Sian chuckles. "Yes, levitation would be a good spell to have for this situation. Unfortunately, it is a bit beyond your capability just now. You could cast the spell, certainly, but the amount of weight that you could lift is far less than the woman is likely to weigh. Baby steps, Isla, baby steps. Remember, the spell that you used to kill the ghouls was mostly me showing you what is possible with enough power. No, let's consider something a bit more physical than a levitate, but similar in effect. I would recommend conjuring some sort of rope. And conjuring materials is a different sort of spell entirely than creating light. At your experience, you do not want to try to create large things because they will fall apart very quickly. Even minor creations will not last long. As you increase in experience, some smaller things can be permanent and you can make larger, temporary things, and so on. As it is, your rope will last a number of minutes, so you will need to plan your use wisely or risk the person you are helping falling again. Do you see what I am getting at? There are fewer rules than your normal Astral magics have, but then more rules in some ways. It can be confusing and only trial and error will show you the right way. But more and more practice equals gaining experience in the craft and that means that you will be able to use more power and more powerful spells."
"But I am here only to advise and teach, not command. Sometimes one learns the most by failing. Just remember that a life might hang in the balance. What do you desire to do? If it is the rope, you will need to absorb a bit more power than you did for the light spell, so choose a slightly larger drop of power. If you want to try something else, I will let you and we will see what happens."
