Ars Magica GRIMOIRE

Flare Bit, Creo Aurum, L10

Base : 3 (Create Debilitating Air, in this case, thick black smoke)

Range : Voice (+2)
Duration : Momentary(+0)
Target : Individual (+0) (an area of up to 100 paces across)

Other : Ignem Requisite (+1) (Flash of light, enhances spell effect)

The spell, when cast, fills an area with smoke, which appears as a series of thick, black puffs of smoke. They appear with a loud report and a flash of light, which serves as an excellent distraction, forcing a concentration roll (only one, which is 9+ for loud noise/bright light), if required. The smoke is thick enough to block vision for a moment, making such things that require sight difficult at best.

The smoke starts forming around the center of the area, and works it's way out to the edges. The smoke disperses normally, though natural phenomena my cause it to disperse more quickly.

Another version of this spell exists at L5, and does not have the Ignem requisite (and does not produce a flash of light when the smoke is created).

Hiya All !!:slight_smile:

I have a very large Spell Grimoire that we have compiled from Spells sent to our group from all over, but seeing as our group hasn’t gotten into the new 5th Edition set up the Spell Grim is still in 4th Edition set up.

If anyone would like a copy of the Spell Grim to Edit to the new 5th Edition rules and post so that all can benefit from it, as well as post and add to it, I would be more than happy to send a copy out!

Just drop me a line if your interested in changing it over, but be warned it is a very BIG Spell Grimoire!

Three Herbam oriented spells (from the notes of Reiner the Lesser)

Eye of the Daisy Muto Herbam (Req: Mentem): 15
R: Touch D: Sun T: Ind

Causes a flowering plant to sprout a watchful eye in a discreet location(ie: within a bloom) and awakens it to consciousness. The plant is able to percieve entities and their activities within typical human sight range, and to report to the caster, provided the caster is able to communicate with plants.

(Base 4[Awaken the consciousness of a plant], +1 touch, +2 Sun. cosmetic animal/corpus effect free) (Note: as per Stir the Slumbering Tree with size adjustment)

Mouth of the Rose Muto Herbam (Req: Corpus) 5
R: Touch D: Concentration T: Ind

Creates a mouth capable of human speech upon a plant, thereby facilitating communication without Intellego spells. Naturally, only awakened plants are capable of utilizing this ability.
(Base 3 [Change a plant], +1 touch, +1 Conc, requisite accounted for in guidelines)
(Note: Herbam guidelines do not account for giving plants abilities, therefore I derived the base in part from Muto Corpus level 2 (Change someone to give them a minor ability.)

Soldier of the Soil Rego Herbam 25
R: Touch D: Sun T: Ind
Grants mobility to a flowering plant, allowing it to uproot itself and move as needed. An awakened plant will follow the verbal commands of the caster to the best of its ability without requiring constant supervision.

(Base 10 [make a plant move with purpose and intelligence] +1 touch, +2 sun)

Please feel free to critique in my thread below!

Detecting the Unborn Avatar
InVi(Co) 25

By laying your hands on the belly of a pregnant woman, the spell will tell if the baby is tied to the magical realm or not.

The spell is not strong enough to detect if the child will have the full hermetic gift or not nor will it detect if the child is tainted by another realm. It will simply reveal the link to the magical realm. Strong links will be reveiled instantly while more subtile links will only tinkle the ends of the touching fingers.

Augustus of Criamon used this spell during his travels & found a number of suitable aprentice for the order doing so. He soon got the reputation of beeing a softy babysitter. Life was a mystery for Augustus & he was sure that the answer lied in the mouth of the young ones.

(Base 5, +0 Per, +1 Conc, +1 Touch, rq. Free, +2 Extra sensitivity(Gentle gift & Un-revealed gift)

Doom of the Magical Migrane 'Redux 2'
Rego Terram
Base 3 Control or move dirt in a very unnatural fashion
+2 to control metal
Requiste: Muto +1
Range: Voice +2
Duration: Momentary +0
Target: Individual +0
Rego Terram (Req: Muto): 20

This spell causes metal spikes to form on the inside of a helmet. If the caster succeeds at a finess roll of 6+, the Helmet will no longer offer protection to the wearer instead adding a +10 to any dammage received by impact on the helmet & attempts to remove the helmet will require a dexterity roll of 6+ or will cause +0 dammage.

Viceralus of Tytalus invented this spell to make an example of how mundane protection were ineffective against true mages. In his presentation, he asked: "How well protected do you feel now?" While a small river of blood as dripping from the victims head. Viceralus spells are always as gruesome as can be.

Doom of the Magical Migrane 'Redux 3'
PeCo (Re,Mu,Te)
Base 30 Kill a target
+2 affect metal
Requistes: Free (cosmetic)
Range: Voice +2
Duration: Momentary +0
Target: Individual +0
PeCo (Re,Mu,Te) 50

This spell causes metal spikes to sprout into the head of the target in a very gruesome way, killing instantly the poor victim. The helmet as a result of the deadly spell, is entwined with the head of the victim and will proove very hard to remove post mortem as spikes actually run through the whole crane.

Viceralus of Tytalus invented this spell to make an example of how mundane protection were ineffective against true mages. In his presentation, he removed the helmet of the subject to show how feeble the human skull actually was only to find pieces of it that dropped onto the ground. viceralus spells always have a gruesome effect.

Health of Tomorrow
ReCo 30

This spell forces the body to accelerate it's healing process allowing to heal light wounds faster than one would usually be able to.

Mandicus of Flambeau used this spell a number of times to help in the war against the infidels, readying the holy troops for yet another day of war.

Instead of rolling for recovery every week, you can roll every day while under the effect of this spell.

(Base 15, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, Ind)


Blessing of the Moon
ReCo 40

This spell forces the body to accelerate it's healing process allowing to heal much faster injuries up to medium level than one would usually be able to.

Under the comfort of the moon's glow, the target will feel his body rejuvenating. During the day, he will suffer the pain of the wounds as he never did before.

Mandicus of Flambeau loved to look at the moon during the calm nights of the holy land. He often used this spell to help in the war against the infidels, readying the holy troops for yet another day of war.

Lower the interval for the recovery roll by one increment while under the effect of this spell. Light wounds recovery rolls are rolled for recovery every day while recovery for medium wounds are rolled every week.

(Base 20, +1 Touch, +3 Moon, Ind)


Blessing of the Full Moon
ReCo 50

This spell forces the body to accelerate it's healing process allowing to heal much faster all injuries than one would usually be able to.

Under the comfort of the Full moon's glow, the target will feel his body rejouvenating. During this single night, the target will feel the evergy of the moon flowing into his vains.

Mandicus of Flambeau, with the help of his focus with the moon, created this mighthy healing spell. In dire times, he used this spell to help in the war against the infidels, readying the holy troops for yet another day of war.

Make one recovery roll to see if the target heals all his wounds.

The strain to the body is such that the target must make an aging roll but can add the medecine/Cirurgy skills that are used to attend to his wounds as a bonus in addition to the LP bonus if applicable.

(Base 35, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, Ind)


These tree spells are most effective with the combination of a CrCo spell to add a bonus to the recovery roll.

W

The Thunder's Kiss
CrAu 25
R: Sight, D: Mom, T: Ind
A lighting bolt strikes from an existing storm cloud, doing +30 damage to a single target it hits. Those near the target must make Size stress rolls of 6+ to remaining standing.
(Base 5, +3 Sight, +1 unnatural)

Magical Scribe
CrAn20
R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Ind, Req: In, Te
The spell makes a perfect copy from a text: a book or a page with the writings and pictures on it. The spell creates always parchment books even if the pattern was made from paper.
If both the original text and the copy are made from parchment the copy is indistinguishable from the original by mundane senses. The magus must make an Int + Finesse roll to see how well his work succeeded. If the result is less than 9 subtract the difference from the text's quality.

(Base 5, +1 Touch, +2 manufactured item)

Hammer of Thor (CrReAu 40, Touch, Sun, Individual, Base 3 for a small lightning +4 for unnatural, free requisite for controlling the lightning)
Enchants a metal weapon that it is covered by strong lightnings (for a final level of 40) that deals +30 dmg at every hit.

Airs Shield (MuAuTe25, Touch, Diameter, Part, Requisite free Base 10)
This spell changes the air around the caster to a substance that deflects fast objekts like arrows, swords, rocks or something like that, granting the caster a +15 soak against these things. Slow objekts arent hindered.


Airs Aegis
(MuAuTe40 Sun, Voice, Part, Size +1 Base 10)
This spell changes the air around a point the acster designates to a substance that deflects fast objekts like arrows, swords, rocks or something like that, granting the caster a +15 soak against these things. Slow objekts arent hindered. The shield has the form of an 20 paces high dome with a radius of 20 paces.

Calling the Cloud (CrAu20 Individual, Moon, Touch, Base 2, +2 unnatural)
Creates a normal Cloud at touch range wich stays at least a few minutes at the creation point

Clouds Castle (MuReAuTe30, Touch, Moon, Individual, Req +1, Base 5)
Changes a normal Cloud to a gelee-like substance wich flyes and that can be reshaped trough normal tools like wood or ice, it can carry nearly 10.000 pounds and can fly at a speed of 5 miles per hour

Angels Fortress(MuReAuTe45, Base 10, Moon, Touch, Individual,Terram req free, +1 Rego, +2 reshaping)
This spell turns a normal cloud (something with an radius of 50 paces) into a cloud that is as light as a normal cloud but is as hard as stone, this "cloudstone" can be rashaped with mundane tools and buildings can be made easily out of it. This cloud can be directed by the caster and can move at a speed of 10 miles/hour

[b]Ring of Light/b(Base 4, Touch, Ring, Individual)
Enchants a object sourunded by a ring to glow and create daylight, because if this spell is cast on a metalring around an object(like a torch or a candle or a cold, soulless metal rod), magical lightsources are very easy to create and every covenant should have at least 100 of the helpers.

God of Thunder(MuReCoAu55 Ritual, Base 35(turn someone into lightning), Personal, Individual, Sun, +1 Rego req, +1 for staying in human form at will)
This powerful transformation ritual turns the caster into a pure form of lightning, he is capable of travel at the speed of a lightning (but only from one point to another like from one housetop to a tree to a mountain), he can use its own body as a very strong lightning bolt with +40 Dmg, he is total invulnerable, only spells may hurt him (Mentem, Vim, Corpus, Auram). His items arent tarnsformed. He can show himself in amore stable state as a human, but in fact he is still pure energy and only has the shape of a human.

[b]Eagle Eyes/b
Give the caster the eyes of an eagle. He gains the Keen Vision Virtue.

[b]Cold Mind/b
Reduces the emotions of the caster so that he can concentrate on a bow shoot or something else. All actions that require concentration gain a bonus of +3, but all interactions between humans gain a penalty of -3.

[b]Strong Hands/b
Avoid the normal shaking of hands, so that actions that involve Dexterity are far more easy. With the Eagles Eyes and the Cold Mind Spell this spell gives a +3 bonus on all shoots with a bow anmd a +6 bonus on shoots witha bow if the archer can aim and the target is not close to him.
Because this are all changes on the user itself and not directly on the bow or the arrow the magic resistance of a target hit by the arrow doesnt help it!

Picture of the Landscape(CrIm10, Touch, Ring, Individual, Base 1, +2 complexity)
You normaly cast this spell on a page of a book(on wich is a ring drawn) or a picture inside a wooden frame. Inside the ring or on the picture a perfectly drawn picture of a non-moving landcape, a building, a obelisk covered with ancient runes or something else the caster wishes is created on the paper, this requires an Intelligence + Finesse roll. With this the caster may also copy existing things but this require a Perception + Finesse roll.

Picture of the Battle(CrIm15, Touch, Ring, Individual, Base 1, +2 complexity, +1 moving images)
You normaly cast this spell on a page of a book(on wich is a ring drawn) or a picture inside a wooden frame. Inside the ring or on the picture a perfectly drawn picture of a moving and chaning battle a tree that changes from one season to another, a dancing bear or something like this is created on the paper, this requires an Intelligence + Finesse roll. With this the caster may also copy existing things but this require a Perception + Finesse roll.

Perfect Picture(CrIm, Touch, Ring, Individual, Base 3, +2 complexity, +1 moving images)
You normaly cast this spell on a page of a book(on wich is a ring drawn) or a picture inside a wooden frame. Inside the ring or on the picture something or someone is created on the paper that moves, makes sounds and smells as the caster wishes. With this spell you can create a singng trubadore that sometimes uses his skills to play with balls, tells you some (defined) storys or you can create a picture of a kitchen in which a meal is amde and can wath the maid who do this, hear the sound of the fire and smell the food when it is ready. This requires an Intelligence + Finesse roll. With this the caster may also copy existing things but this require a Perception + Finesse roll.

Picture of the Lady(CrImMe40, Touc, Ring, Individual, Base 2, intricacy, +6 Mentem requisite as in the spell "The Shadow of Human Life CrImMe40)
You normaly cast this spell on a picture inside a wooden frame. A person inside the picture is created which has simulated intellect and functions as an independent human, albeit a stupid one capable of interpreting general orders in new situations. The "Intelligence" and "Communication" of the picture demands on an Intelligence + Finesse roll (dont forget the aura!): every point is like a point in character creation but the lady starts with -3 Int so for -2 she needs 6 points in the roll, for a 0 she needs 10 points and for a +3 she needs 20 points in the roll. She speaks latin according to her Int/Com starting with 0, so a Int/Com score of 3 would grant her a 6 in latin.
With this spell the magus Larius ex Jerbiton protected his lab and his sancta, the guarding Lady was capable to see if someone was a uninvited person, ask him for the secret codeword and make a loud alarm sound that could be heard in every corner of the covenant.
All these spells are inventions of Larius ex Jerbiton and his fine pictures created wit his high Finess score and his Free Expresison Skill were sold to many covenants and even some mundane folk.

Inferno of the Mage's Ire

From this thread:

These spells are my attempted updates of 1st Edition spells into 5th Ed, with a bit of housekeeping. Extended thanks to Fruny for all his help with these.

This first batch is from this thread:
https://forum.atlas-games.com/t/the-forgotten-spells/1126/1

Creo Animal

Full Health of Beast and Bird
Level: Gen R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Ind
Cancels the effects (short of death) of a temporary malign Animal spell cast upon a beast of Size +1 or less if you can match the Level of the spell on die + Level.
Base Effect
NOTE: I realise there is a Vim spell that does this better, but it's nice to have multiple ways to do the same thing.

Bear’s Cloak
Level: 20 R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Ind
Makes a size +1 bear pelt. As a blanket, it keeps one warmer than a normal blanket would.
(Base 5 , +1 Touch, +2 Sun)

Conjuration of Savory Beef
Level: 20, R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Ind, Ritual
Produces a whole young cow worth of well cooked, highly spiced beef, enough to make a hearty meal for 300 adults.
(Base: 10, treated and processed +2)

Conjuration of the Tiny Killer
Level: 30 , R: Voice, D: Diam
Creates a shrew, whose bite is poisonous (see Stats, below). A shrew is a vicious animal who will attack whatever is moving and closest, unless further skills or spells are applied.
(Base: 15, Voice (+2), Diam (+1))
NOTE: To quickly quantify it, I would base the shrew on the Viper from the ArM5 Mundane Beasts, changing its stats based on it’s much smaller size (Viper -4, shrew -10: Strength (and Dam) reduced by 12 (to -20); Quickness (and Def) increased by 6 (to 9). I would use the Viper’s Venomous Bite (basically gets the venom in if it hits with Advantage greater than the target’s Armor Protection or the target must make a Stm check of 6+ or take a light wound).

Twin Eyes of the Stalking Shadow
Level: 30 , R: Touch, D: Sun
Creates a black cat whose tail has a white tip. The cat is exceptionally stealthy. Basically as the Shrew above, but since a cat isn’t likely to attack you, Touch range is fine.

Conjuring the Behemoth
Level: 45 , R: Voice, D: Sun
Creates a wild elephant of immense strength.
Base: 15, Voice (+2), Sun (+2) Size (+2)

Conjuring the Lord of Air
Level: 70, R: Voice, D: Mom, Ritual, Req: Vim
Creates an especially ferocious griffin, as described below
(Base: 50, Voice (+2), Size +2)

I’m not aware of a 5th Ed Griffin, but here’s the tweaked 1st Ed Stats:

Griffin
Magic Might 30 (Animal)
Size +4 Cun 0
Per +6 Stm +9
Talons: Init: +6 Atk: +7 Dam +22
Fat: n/a Def +2 Soak +26
Brave +6 Cowardly -6
This creature has a lion’s body in the back and an eagle’s in the front. It attacks with its talons, reserving its beak for tearing its dead victims and for emergency fights. It is ferocious when threatened or hungry, but it is not an innately malicious beast. Its heart is worth 3 pawns of Animal Vis.

Muto Animal

Curse of the Crawling Meat
Level: 4, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Gradually turns meat, cooked or raw (but dead) into vermin: flies, spiders, maggots, mice, etc. The inside of each piece transforms first, so viewers watch as the meat first begins to bulge and moves as the vermin inside struggle to get out. Then, when they ear their way free, they crawl and fly about. This spell affects up to a full boar or an equivalent amount of meat.
(Base: 2, Voice (+2))

The Immaculate Beast
Creo Animal Level 15 , R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Ind
Makes an animal into a flawless specimen of its type, amplifying its outstanding features. The animal gets +3 on rolls related to its strongest feature. It will improve a hawk’s vision, a racehorse’s speed, a draft horse’s strength, etc.
(Base: 4, Touch (+1), Sun (+2))
NOTE: I used the recovery bonus as a base, and added +1 Mag for a more general bonus, though one could argue this is more natural for many creatures than healing faster.

Perdo Animal

Shed Fur
Level: 5, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Removes the fur from any pelt or living animal up to size +1
(Base 3, Sight (+2))

Alleviate the Serpent’s Bite: 10
Level: 10 , R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Ind
Casting Req: Corp
Makes one dose of animal toxin harmless. If cast on toxin already injected into someone, it requires a corporem prerequisite, and it will keep the person from suffering further damage. It can make poison in a poisonous animal harmless if you can touch the animal in question. It has no effect on herbal or mineral poisons.
(Base: 5, Touch (+1))

Cleanse Verminous Infestation
Level: 50, R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Structure
Eliminates all vermin from a single building, such as a castle keep or covenant gatehouse. All spiders, snakes, rats, mice, lice and other little creatures emerge from their hiding places and kill themselves or each other until all are slain. Any animal Size -3 (or whatever size you designate) or greater is not affected.
(Base: 30, Touch(+1), Structure (+3)
NOTE: Not very likely to be ever used. A better spell might be:
Rego Animal Level 20 , R. Touch, D: Diam, T: Structure
Causes the vermin come out and to kill each other or themselves. There will be some survivors.
(Base 2, Touch (+1), Diam (+1), Structure (+3), complex suggestion (+1)).

The Hunter’s Lethal Arrow
Level: 35, R: Touch, D: Mom, T: Ind
Enchants an arrow to slay an animal. The arrow must be fired on the round after the spell is cast. If it hits an animal, the beast must make a Stm + Size Roll of 12+ or die. If it makes the roll, it still suffers normal arrow damage +10. The target gets normal magic resistance. This spell long ago passed from the secret pages of House Mercere and their Mutantum spells. It has since fell back out of common knowledge. This spell has been mutated to be more inline with Hermetic Magic, and knowledge of it does not allow a caster to create or cast other Mutantum spells.
(Base 30, Touch (+1), Tethered)

Rego Animal Spells

Circle of Beast Warding
Level: 5 , R: Touch, D: Ring, T: Circle
No natural animal will come within the drawn ward.
(Base 2, Touch (+1), Ring (+2))

Ward Against Shapeshifters
Level: General, R: Touch, D: Ring, T: Circle
Creates a magical ring around you. No lycanthrope can enter the ring unless its Magic Might is greater than the level of the ward. A Magus shape shifter must beat the level with his Animal Parma roll. A Bjornaer magus would be uneffected as they are considered normal animals. The ring can be seen as a golden-hued dome at certain angles during the night.

Creo Aquam Spells

Douse the Fiend of Flame
Level: Gen , R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Weakens and possibly destroys a creature composed of fire, such as a Fire Elemental. A base level 10 spell will inflict a Light Wound, 20 a Medium, 30 a Heavy, 40 an Incapacitating, and 60 will kill it.
(Base effect, +2 Voice)

Burden of the Watery Load
Level: 10, R: Voice, D: Diam, T: Ind
Water forms on one target. Unless the target is naked, the water will soak into furs and clothes, increasing the target’s Load by at least one point. Attack and Defense in Combat are reduced by this extra Encumbrance if the total exceeds the target’s Strength. The target will also leave wet footprints.
(Base 3, +2 Voice, +1 Diam)

Douse the Fire: 5
Level: 5, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Creates water in a fire and puts it out if the fire is no larger than a bonfire. This spell causes a good deal of steam.

Level: 30, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
Casting Requisites: Animal, Corpus
Fills a target’s lungs full of water, drowning it. The target must make Stamina rolls every 30 seconds, starting at a difficulty of 3, or lose 1 Fatigue Level. The Ease Factor rises by 1 every 30 seconds. Wounds are taken after the target is out of Fatigue. See "Deprivation" on pg 180 of ArM5.
(Base 4, +2 Voice, +2 Sun, very unnatural +2)

Muto Aquam

Water to Wine:
Level: 10 , R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Ind
Changes up to a large cask of water into decent wine. The many variations of this spell create different type of wines, however quality is based on a Int + Finesse roll.
(Base 3, +1 Touch, +2 Sun)

Ice Lock
Rego Aquam Level: 35, R: Sight, D: Sun, Target: Part
Over the course of an hour, one body of water up to the size of a small lake (no more than 2 miles in diameter) freezes. If the water is running, it will either freeze up (if it is small) or fill with ice floes (if it is large).
(Base: 3, +3 Sight, +2 Sun, +1 Part, +2 Size)

Perdo Aquam

Destroy Spirit of the Water:
Level: Gen, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Weakens and possibly destroys a creature composed of water, such as a Water Elemental. If the spell penetrates the creatures Magic Resistance, the Elemental loses Might equal to the spell’s level.
(Base effect, +2 Voice)

Rego Aquam

Bind Spirit of the Water
Level: 45, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
You can control a creature made of water, and may give it one complex command at a time. The creature may resist a specific command on an Intelligence or Cunning roll of 12+, but this does not end the spell.
If the elemental is already bound by a higher level binding spell, your spell will not work. A botch means the elemental will attack you to the best of its ability. If you try to bind an elemental again when its first binding wears off, you risk one extra botch die for every day the elemental has been in your service.
(Base 25, +2 Voice, +2 Sun)

Summon Spirit of the Water
Level: Gen, R: Arc, D: Sun, T: Ind
You can summon any water elemental if you know of it and have an Arcane Connection to it. Because of their nature, Arcane Connections to elementals are not as specific as they are to other creatures. For example, water from a well would serve as a connection to any elemental that inhabits such places. The level of the spell must exceed the Magic Might of the elemental to be summoned. You must summon the elemental out of its natural element. A botch you means you have summoned the wrong kind of elemental, perhaps an unusually strong or hostile one.
(Base Gen, +3 Arc, +2 Sun)

Gift of the Floating Wood
Level: 30, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
Casting Req: Based on target's Form
Lets any object or creature of Size +3 or smaller float in water. Lasts until the object leaves the water or Sun.
(Base 5, +2 Voice, +2 Sun, +1 Size)
NOTE: This spell acutally makes the water float the object, unlike a Rego Terram or Corpus that makes the object lighter than water. Just another way to do the same effect that favors the Aquam mage.

CREO AURAM

Eroding Winds
Level: Gen , R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Whips up winds that weaken and possibly destroy a creature composed of earth, such as an Earth Elemental. A base level 10 spell will inflict a Light Wound, 20 a Medium, 30 a Heavy, 40 an Incapacitating, and 60 will kill it.
(Base effect, +2 Voice)

INTELLEGO AURAM

Smell Poisonous Vapors: 5
NOW: Level: 4, R: Per, D: Mom, T: Smell
You can sense whether the air you are breathing or nearby is poisonous.
(Base 2, +2 Smell)

MUTO AURAM

Chimes in the Breeze
Muto Imaginem Level: 3, R: Touch, D: Conc, T: Ind
The sound of the wind touching you rings with the sounds of lightly whispering chimes.
(Base 1, +1 Touch, +1 Conc)
NOTE: Hopefully I'll remember to move this to the Imaginem list :confused:

Blasting Wind, Blinding Mist
Muto Auram Level: 5, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Increases the strength of some minor air phenomenon, including fog, smoke, odors, etc to half again its original strength. These effects will revert to their previous levels as circumstances dictate. The spell cannot increase a phenomenon beyond what is naturally possible.
(Base: 2, +2 Voice, +1 increased strength)

Heat of Hell’s Impending Doom
Level 25, R: Touch, D: Conc, T: Ind, Ritual
Req: Rego, Ignum
A huge wave of burning hot wind comes rolling over the area in a mile radius around you. During the ritual a space up to 100 feet around may be paced which will be exempt from the heat. The heat calls for a Fatigue roll of 6+ every round. Light wounds are inflicted once fatigue levels are gone. Drinking or immersion in copious amounts of water can add up to +6 to the save.
(Base: 4, +2 size, +1 Rego effect (protects center area))

PERDO AURUM

Slay the Spirit of the Winds:
Level: Gen , R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Weakens and possibly destroys a creature composed of air, such as an Air Elemental. If the spell penetrates the Elementa'ls Magic Resistance, the Elemental loses Might equal to the spell’s level.
(Base effect, +2 Voice)

Still the Gentle Breeze
Level: 10, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Stops the nearest in range breeze to the caster. Under normal circumstances the winds will not pick up from that direction for at least an hour or so.
(Base 4, +2 Voice)

Air Clear and Pure
Level: 15 , R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Ind
Destroys a normal weather phenomenon, such as smoke, haze or odor.
(Base 5, +2 Voice)

Thief of the Stolen Breath
Level: 15, R: Voice, D: Mom, T: Part
Casting Req: Corpus or Animal
Takes a creature’s breath out of its lungs, causing panic and an instant drop of 1 fatigue level plus a second level unless a Stm roll of 7+ is made.
(Base 4, +2 Voice, +1 part)

REGO AURUM

Bind Spirit of the Winds
Level: 45, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
You can control a creature made of air, and may give it one complex command at a time. The creature may resist a specific command on an Intelligence or Cunning roll of 12+, but this does not end the spell. If you try to bind an elemental again when its first binding wears off, you risk one extra botch die for every day the elemental has been in your service.
(Base 25, +2 Voice, +2 Sun)

Summon Spirit of the Winds: Gen
NOW: Level: Gen, R: Arc, D: Sun, T: Ind
You can summon any air elemental if you know of it and have an Arcane Connection to. Because of their nature, Arcane Connections to elementals are not as specific as they are to other creatures. For example, air from a cloud would serve as a connection to any elemental that inhabits such places. The level of the Ritual must exceed the Magic Might of the elemental to be summoned. You must summon the elemental out of its natural element. A botch you means you have summoned the wrong kind of elemental, perhaps an unusually strong or hostile one.

Sense of the Fires Nearby
Level: 30, R: Per, D: Conc, T: Hearing
The locations of all fires within earshot become apparent to you. Fires are energetic, and healthy campfires (with plenty of fuel) can be heard screaming almost a mile away. Especially large fires can be heard even farther, while dying fires are reduced to whispers. Candles produce sounds similar to soft whistles. Some overlapping or distant fires might require Concentration + Perception 6 + to pick out.

(Base 25, +2 Voice, +2 Sun)

Summon the Fiend of Fire
Level: Gen, R: Arc, D: Sun, T: Ind
You can summon any fire elemental if you know of it and have an Arcane Connection to it. Because of their nature, Arcane Connections to elementals are not as specific as they are to other creatures.

(Base 3, +1 Touch, +1 Conc, +2 size)

Eyes of the Past
Level: 20, R: Voice, D: Conc, T: Ind, Req: Mentem
Allows you to see what happened in your presence at a specific time in the past, up to five years ago and create the illusion of those events around you.

MUTO IMAGINEM

Illusion of the Altered Image

Illusion of the Altered Image
Level: 5, R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Part
A voice affected by this spell sounds like a different voice, possibly another person’s voice. A Finesse+ Com roll vs. an observer’s Per + Folk Ken would let you mimic someone’s voice so that even friends would be fooled.
(Base 1, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 Part)

Transparency of New-blown Glass
PeIm Level: 25 , R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Part

A Finesse roll of 6+ creates one of notable quality (Damage +5), while a roll of 12+ indicates an extraordinary item (Damage +6). The spear head can appear already fastened on the end of a magically created staff if cast with an Herbam Prerequisite (using either the short or long spear description in ArM5, pg 176, modified by the spear head damage).

Level: 30, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
Requisite: Imaginem
Creates an ancient looking stone wall, made up of rough slabs of stone covered with runes in a circle up to 4 paces high and 8 paces in diameter. The wall is covered by a sight and touch based illusion to make any attempt to climb the stone or chip through it frustrating at best, and impossible at worst. Per + Search rolls of 12+ are required to make any progress each round. At your option, the circle may contain an entrance into the center and this may be covered by a shifting illusion confusing where one may exit or enter (or both) using the same Search roll as above.

Opening the Earth’s Pore
Level: 50, R: Sight, D: Sun, T: Part, Ritual
Requisite: Ignem
Opens a hole from the surface of the earth down to the hot reaches of Hell. Molten rock spews forth out of this hole, accompanied by noxious gases. Normally people can outrun the lava flow, however those within 15 paces of the pore are hit by some of the lava on the initial eruption. The lava spill covers the land within one mile of the pore, doing +20 damage to anyone caught in it each round. Those outrunning the lava are still dealt +5 damage from heat and toxic gasses. On typical flat ground, the lava takes about an hour to reach the 1 mile point, though it can go much faster down hill (and even outpace a horse). The lava keeps erupting until the duration expires, but at the 1 mile mark the lava hardens and stops flowing. All wooden items are set ablaze, structures are destroyed or filled by the lava flow, rendering them unrecoverable, except by magic.

MUTO TERRAM

Statue to Animal
Level: 40, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Ind
Requisite: Animal, Rego
Causes a hand-sized, earthen or stone statue of an animal to grow into the full sized animal it is a copy of. The animal will follow the vocal orders of the magus, and will revert to statue form commanded to do so, which ends the spell. If killed in animal form, the statue is damaged beyond repair. Damage done to the statue while in full animal form is not normally healed, but may be repaired with magic or craft. The animal may be any mundane creature up to size +1. It retains it stone-like soak of +15, but otherwise has the same stats as a normal creature of its type. It has no Magic Might score. Poorly constructed statues can impose penalties upon the full size animal, however a moderately skilled craftsman can create a normal statue in a couple of hours with a Dex + Craft roll of 6+.
