Okay, decided what spell Fiona's going to be working on in Spring 1220.
[u]Taking the Raven's Wing[/u] (working title, might change it later)
Muto Corpus Level 35, with an Animal requisite.
This spell is basically a variant of Cloak of Black Feathers (p. 131 of the main rulebook), except you don't actually need a physical cape made of raven feathers for the spell, and it's cast on others. This would fall within her Minor Magical Focus: Transformation of Others
Base 20 ("Turn a human into a bird or a fish"), Range: Touch (+1), Duration: Sun (+2), Target: Individual.
Muto 16, Corpus 14, and Animal 7. If I'm reading the MMF rules right, the lowest score is still doubled, but if it's the requisite, it's capped by the score of the main Form; Animal would then be doubled to 14, the same as her Corpus.
So, lab totals would be Mu 16 + Co/An 14 + Int 1 + Magic Theory 6 + Aura 5 + Inventive Genius 3 +Superior Equipment (from the lab) 1 + Lesser Feature (Still) 1 (from the lab) = 47.
I'm thinking that she would get a Similar Spell Bonus for knowing Shape of the Woodland Prowler, as the spell effects are almost identical, and the R/D/T is the same. If so, that would give her a +5, raising her lab total to 52. If she were to experiment, that gives her an additional +3 for her Inventive Genius plus a simple die roll, so she would be between five and fourteen points shy of inventing it in just the Spring.
Now, seeing as how she's working on a MuCo spell in summer (Gift of the New Body), am I correct in thinking that she can also work on Taking the Raven's Flight as well, seeing as how it's also MuCo? If so, if she experiments on the new spell in spring, would she be required to do so in summer also, or can she experiment in one season and not the other? And if she experiments on Raven in the summer, is she also required to experiment on the New Body?
