Hmmm?

What I've always found strange is that the original boxed set, p. 21 "Create
Minor Helm" & "Create Major Helm".  Follow up with a permanence spell, and
you've got yourself a helm.  (Sixth and Seventh level spells)  These two
spells are considered common; known so that in an emergancy you can have a
temporary helm.  Yet it seems no one ever thinks to do this...
