Runequest :
new addition did away with Spirit magic. Does anyone remember how that worked? You sacrificed divine points permanently to get the spell, then you could cast it once a day, is that right?
My son is trying to play and I can't remember since it was long ago and I played only a few times. He can find all the books but the magic book and it's out of print. If anyone knows, or knows where to get a 2nd edition magic book, please let me know.

I'd try asking here:

It's the runequest forum for the current publisher. There might be a better runequest forum for older editions somewhere but, not being part of the runequest community, I don't know where it would be.
