Generally accepted "fact" is that, if one were to try to read a magic book that was above your skill level, the words would elude you, rearranging and shifting so that you would be unable to make out the words (or if you could, the words would be different each time you read it).

So yeah, the porn would probably prove to be more useful, really, if simply because he could actually read it.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
