The wish spell is the "grand unification theory" of magic.† It requires that the wizard have a good understanding of all seven schools of magic.† Many quests have ended in glory, and disaster over the correct formulae to cast this, the most often dreamed about, spell.


Wish: Pr=10 (Abjuration, Alteration, Conjuration, Divination, Evocation, Enchantment, Necromancy)† †VS.† †

This spell requires the caster to speak and to dream.† † That means,† the caster must spend an inventing point and† make an inventing roll to cast this spell, along with all other requirements of spell casting.† †

Remember, a 95-00 roll on your inventing is a critical failure, so good luck.

Keep in mind, a failed inventing roll doesn't mean the spell didn't work.† It just means you didn't properly think things through.† †Kind of a Monkey's Paw wish.

Mentioning the Monkeys Paw. I read a Book last night where someone combined a Monkeys Paw and a Hand of Glory. Very Powerful and Dangerous to the weilder and enemy alike.

A good read and good for idea. Simon R Green for two series. The Nightside Series and Secret Histories Series.

Thanks to CLanggedor for gathering this list.


Any thoughts on a Cantrip? Something that causes 1pt or no points of damage but has minor effects like lighting a candle or light gust of wind. I know a perspective Spellcaster who might be interested.


I swear I thought you guys were talking about CATNIP until my eyes focused correctly.

Curse: The spellcaster places a bad luck curse on his target. All of the victimís actions are at -4 until the curse is broken. To be effective, the spellcaster must know his targetís ďtrue nameĒ. The specific requirements needed to break the curse are left up to the GM to determine. R=CHR. PR=25.

Locate: Acts as Heightened Senses allowing you to determine the location of a specific object or person, as long as that object/person is within range. The range of the spell varies based on the amount of power used to fuel it (use same scale as Teleportation).

Have any of you tried these out in your games? If so, how'd they work? I'm looking for a bit of feedback so I can make adjustments to the writeups.

I'm bumping this up, as I'll be using several of these as part of a little something I'm working on. I'm also tinkering with some magic items for use by the characters, one of which is a helmet that enhances the wearer's natural mystical abilities, as well a granting them several new powers.
