"I leave that to your individual discretion," Valanor replies, nodding sagely. "There are time constraints, and certainly I would be more comfortable with time to feel out the full extents of this... shift, in a more controlled environment, but duty will call me to act regardless. I would not speak as to why it has happened now, not without more investigation, but I leave that task to those more qualified."
The shifted dragon pauses, then elaborates, gesturing with his hands in a somewhat unnatural manner that probably suggests to you that he's still having trouble keeping his mannerisms consistent with that of a normal human. "My own spellcasting comes from innate talent, a sorcerous origin, if you would. Magic is in my blood, and while there will surely be some trial and error involved, I am still fully capable of utilizing my magic via innate ability. Those who possess power bestowed on them by an external force would also have a somewhat easier time of it, as they are given the power as it is, and it is theirs to use as they please. Naturally, it will become easier to use with experience, but it will not be as troublesome a task as those before those who have gained their power through the intense study of magic, as their worlds have been essentially turned upside down from this. In any case, I leave the decision as to how to best proceed to you, as always. My own physical prowess remains unbowed, in any event, so I am confident enough in my ability to face challenges as I did before."
