30 days of little spells

Some days ago, I heard my players with young magi said me : "We can do nothing with our art's scores."
Often, during my games as player, I have some experimentation points in my lab, too little for great spells, but enough for a 2nd magnitude spell or lesser.
Often, I like imagine a magi with some spells that he launches just for habit, some spells enough little to be in auto-cast.

So, I'm lauching in this little challenge. 2 little spells by a day, picking in various form and techniques, maximum third magnitude.

  1. MuCo 10 & MuIg 4
  2. PeHe 5 & PeCo 5
  3. InVi 5 & PeIg 10
  4. MuTe 10 & MuMe 5
  5. ReIm 5 & PeIg 10
  6. ReTe 5 & CrMe(Ig) 10
  7. ReMe 10 & MuIm 10

R : touch, D : instant, T : individual
This spell is simply use to destroy a fallen tree who blocks a path. After the spell, there stays on place a brass of branch, just good size for a fireplace or a campfire.

Agilia ex-Bjornaer was primus of a mountain covenant in the frontier between Provence and Iberia Tribunal when she crafts this spell. Major part of the silver of her covenant came from merchant between mountain village and town in valley and fallen trees who block the path and annoys the merchant were, year after year a real threat for her business.
Her experiment leads to a minor flaw. This version was also known as "A tree in a wood for fire".

She gave the version with flaw to Duremar, and the free flaw to Crintera, both under the same name "clear the way". Now, few years later, you are not sure which version you buy...
