Statted NPC Magus

A campaign of mine came to an end. I thought having stats for another magus could be useful for other players who need a NPC. It was a high-powered game, and so even with editing, she's probably has more experience than the advancement rules on p. 32 allow. Spells not described in the core book may be in another Atlas Games book, or be completely original. A brief description follows such.

Circe's Familiar Bond is a level 65 effect, a +2 Golden Cord, and +4 Bronze Cord.

Circe, once named Theodora, was a daughter of a middling merchant, who travelled with his family. Before she came to the attention of a magus, her father's caravan was attacked by "crusaders" Her experience left her with an implacable hatred of such. Groups that come across her path are rarely seen again.

Circe has contacted a number of merchants and has developed a relationships to bring information and news. She has many Arcane Connections to her merchants and trading markets. (The following plan assumes that a MuVi "Superficial Change" can change a powerful spell so that it is considered specifically designed to the target, preventing warping. If not, Circe rotates through members of the caravan)

Circe casts Open the Intangible Tunnel on a target with a MuVi spontaneous spell to prevent warping. She then casts Maintain the Demanding Spell on the Intangible Tunnel. Then, she casts The Private Speech of Eros And Psyche through the tunnel, again followed by a level spontaneous spell to make it tailored for the recipient. She casts Maintain the Demanding Spell on the Private Speech. With her Flexible Formulaic Magic, the Maintenance time frame becomes Moon, and she has Enduring Magic, so the duration is multiplied by a simple die.

Circe has mental links to multiple people. She has an Arcane Connection to at least one person in each of her caravans, allowing her to use Leap of Homecoming to travel there and deal with challenges. Circe's Crown of Command, Aura of Ennobled Presence, Inspirational, her Faerie Sympathy and possibly Venus' Blessing make her a very persuasive interlocutor, even with the Gift penalties. Or she can use Many Mistaken Steps when force is necessary.
