One last comment, with my apologies. Hopefully this is helpful!

"You can have at most four attendant magics, spells, ghosts, curses, magical items,
in sum. If have four already, this spell must displace one of them. Roll dice to
determine which one. It departs, returning to its native world, passing through
the jasminite gates, evaporating into the atmosphere, or becoming abruptly inert."

This phrasing is odd to me. "This spell" presumably means "a new tablet". Does this mean that when I pick up a new tablet, one of my other attendant magics will disappear?

The implication is that if one person tries to transport a whole cartload of spell tablets all but four will become inert. Is this permanent, or temporary?

If someone has four attendant ghosts, can I sneak a couple of spell tablets into their suitcase while they're not looking, and thereby chase away two of their ghosts?

Should the "new" attendant magic be one of the potentially inert/evaporated items when I roll dice to see which departs, or does the new one automatically displace an old one?
