So my player wants to make a MuAuTe spell to turn the Air around a person into stone, metal, and diamonds as three separate spells to kill a person/thing by suffocation. Fine.
However, I'm trying to actually determine just what the level of the base effect should be.
On pg 127 the base effect at level 4 says "earth/fire/water" and level 5 is a mixture of elements or something slightly unnatural, level 10 is something wholly unnatural.
My thought is to use the base level 4 effect - which in the spell below turns a rain into stones.
However, I need to take into account the Terram requisite more carefully:
So we have:
Level 4 stone
Level 5 Metal
Level 10 Diamond
Then the next problem is how to adjucate the base "size" of the spell for each effect. The base size of Auram is a weather phenomenon in a 100 pace boundary. My player wants to just affect enough air around a person to kill them. This could be a 10x10x10 cube, or it could be a 3x3x3 cube.
For terram however, the base amount of stone is a 1x1x1 cubic pace, the metal is a cubic foot, and the diamond is a cubic inch. I'm not sure how the size interactions should work with this spell. Thoughts?
