Inbetween manic times at work, I've stopped the insanity by considering 2 new spells for a particularly destructive Flambeau.
Summoning the Scorpio
Cr/He Lvl 25 T/D/G
This device will summon a 'scorpio' style bolt thrower. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorpio_(weapon).
The weapon is built entirely from plant products such as wooden bracing and dowling as well as ropes made from hemp. The inventor is Marius of Flambeau's and his sigil manifests on this spell as it being entirely covered in thorns.
This weapon does damage (+12) as per heavy Arbalest in Lords of men. As this is also natural motion. Any mundane bolt fired from this device will not need to penetrate Magic resistance. However as all the components in this device are wood or plant, its not as strong as it could be and liable to break, and on ANY roll of a 0, the device breaks. On an actual botch it may well do it ins such a way it causes damage to its crew. The device will also need a 6 action reload time using the wooden crank
(Base 2, +1 touch, + 2 Sun, + 2 Complexity, + 2 Group)
Summon the Arbalest
Cr/He(Te) 30 T/S/G
This device like before creates an all wooden Mangonel however, thanks to the requisite, without the same capacity for critical failure as the Scorpio. This device is bigger, and requires appropriate skills to opperate.
This device does Damage as per the Lords of men Mangonel.
(Base 2 +1 Touch + 2 sun +2 complexity + 2 Group + 1 Terram requisite)
In both of these I have added the group requisite to represent the various individual components neccessart to construct the device, and the complexity to put them together in an order that works. I've added the critical failure aspect to counter the use of a requisite. In both cases I don't think the total amount of wood is more then 10 square paces. both of these use natural motion and therefore as long as the weapon doesn't use magically created projectiles, MR is not a worry
Re/He 10 V/C/I
Allows the caster to remotely opperate a Ballista using his finesse score.
(Base 3, +2 voice, + 1 conc).
Crewing the Warwolf.
Re/He 15 V/C/I
As per Distant archer but + 1 size for the increased size of the overall construction.
Specific spells designed to allow the caster to completely control the seige engines the create at range. This is how I spend my free moments at work
