This spell enables the wizard to cause nonmagical fires - from as small as a torch or lantern to as large as the area of effect - to reduce in size and brightness to become mere coals or increase in light to become as bright as full daylight and increase the illumination to double the normal radius. Note that this does not affect either fuel consumption or damage caused by the fire.
The caster can affect any or all fires in the spell's area. He can alter their intensities with a single gesture as long as the spell is in effect.

The spell lasts until the caster cancels it, all fuel is burned, or the duration expires. The caster can also extinguish all flames in the area, which expends the spell immediately. The spell does not affect fire elementals or similar creatures.

When an alarm spell is cast, the wizard causes a selected area to react to the presence of any creature larger than a normal rat - anything larger than about one-half cubic foot in volume or more than about three pounds in weight. The area of effect can be a portal, a section of floor, stairs, etc. As soon as any creature enters the warded area, touches it, or otherwise contacts it without speaking a password established by the caster, the alarm spell lets out a loud ringing that can be heard clearly within a 60-foot radius. (Reduce the radius by 10 feet for each interposing door and by 20 feet for each substantial interposing wall.)

The sound lasts for one round and then ceases. Ethereal or astrally projected creatures do not trigger an alarm, but flying or levitating creatures, invisible creatures, or incorporeal or gaseous creatures do. The caster can dismiss the alarm with a single word.
The material components of this spell are a tiny bell and a piece of very fine silver wire.

Materials
Soap and water 
To cast this spell, the transmuter must wash themselves in soap and water, creating a plethora of bubbles which they then cover themselves with. The washing process is magical. Any normal soap will be extra sudsy, helping to facilitate the process.

When the wizard is done with washing, any area that retains bubbles is covered with a spell that increases one's perceived attractiveness. It should be noted that attractiveness is not the same as charisma, and this spell has no effect on one's charisma. For purposes of this spell, attractiveness is a non-standard stat based on a 3d6 roll, and this spell increases one's attractiveness to a minimum of 15, or by 1d4, whichever is higher. A character may not exceed 18 hotness.

Allure persists until the caster speaks or makes any verbal sound. The spell similarly fails if the bubbles are washed off, or if the caster falls asleep. Should this spell be dispelled, the change is instant. All people viewing the subject see the transformation instantly. It is made even more apparent by the fact the caster is probably still covered in bubbles.

Someone making physical contact with an Allured section of the caster (i.e. an area covered by unseen magic bubbles) will feel the bubbles, breaking them, and breaking the spell.

Materials
Finely cured leather that has been blessed by a priest 
By means of this spell, the wizard creates a magical field of force that serves as if it were scale mail armor (+4AC). The spell has no effect on a person already armored or a creature with Armor Class 14 or better. It is not cumulative with the shield spell, but it is cumulative with Dexterity and, in the case of fighter/mages, with the shield bonus. The armor spell does not hinder movement or prevent spellcasting, and adds no weight or encumbrance. It lasts until successfully dispelled or until the wearer sustains cumulative damage totaling greater than 8 points + 1 per level of the caster. (It is important to note that the armor does not absorb this damage. The armor merely grants an AC of 14; the wearer still suffers full damage from any successful attacks.) Thus, the wearer might suffer 8 points from an attack, then several minutes later sustain an additional 1 point of damage. Unless the spell were cast by a wizard of 2nd level or higher, it would be dispelled at this time. Until it is dispelled, the armor spell grants the wearer full benefits of the Armor Class gained.

The material component is a piece of finely cured leather that has been blessed by a priest.

Materials
A bit of wool or a small lump of wax 
When the audible glamer spell is cast, the wizard causes a volume of sound to arise, at whatever distance he desires (within range), and seem to recede, approach, or remain at a fixed place as desired. The volume of sound created, however, is directly related to the level of the spellcaster.

The volume is based upon the lowest level at which the spell can be cast, 1st level. The noise of the audible glamer at this level is that of four men, maximum. Each additional experience level of the wizard adds a like volume, so that at 2nd level the wizard can have the spell cause sound equal to that of eight men. Thus, talking, singing, shouting, walking, marching, or running sounds can be created. The auditory illusion created by an audible glamer spell can be virtually any type of sound, but the relative volume must be commensurate with the level of the wizard casting the spell. A horde of rats running and squeaking is about the same volume as eight men running and shouting. A roaring lion is equal to the noise volume of 16 men, while a roaring dragon is equal to the noise volume of no fewer than 24 men.

A character stating that he does not believe the sound receives a saving throw, and if it succeeds, the character then hears a faint and obviously false sound, emanating from the caster's direction.

Note that this spell can enhance the effectiveness of the phantasmal force spell.

The material component of the spell is a bit of wool or a small lump of wax.

A bit of bark 
By placing a bit of bark on a willing subject, including themselves, the caster causes the creature's skin to toughen, harden, and grow into a thick bark-like layer. Clothing worn may be damaged or destroyed. If armor is worn while the spell is cast, it fuses with the bark and immobilizes the subject. This process takes the rest of the round in which the spell was cast to grow. While enchanted so, the subject reduces incoming damage by 3. The bark shapes at random making it impossible to wear armor over it.

The spell may be dispelled with a touch and a word. When it is dispelled or when the duration is ended, the bark falls off the person in large chunks and remains on the ground. The bark is of the same kind the caster used in the spell.

When the wizard casts this spell, a jet of searing flame shoots from his fingertips.

The burning hands send out flame jets of five-foot length in a horizontal arc of about 120 degrees in front of the wizard. Any creature in the area of the flames suffers 1d3 points of damage, plus 2 points for each level of experience of the spellcaster, to a maximum of 1d3+20 points of fire damage.

Those successfully saving vs. spell receive half damage. Flammable materials touched by the fire burn (e.g., cloth, paper, parchment, thin wood, etc.). Such materials can be extinguished in the next round if no other action is taken.

Materials
 
Cantrips are minor spells I studied by wizards during their apprenticeship, regardless of school. The cantrip spell is a practice method for the apprentice, teaching him how to tap minute amounts of magical energy. Once cast, the cantrip spell enables the caster to create minor magical effects for the duration of the spell.

So minor are these effects that they have severe limitations. They are completely unable to cause a loss of hit points, cannot affect the concentration of spellcasters, and can only create small, obviously magical materials. Furthermore, materials created by a cantrip are extremely fragile and cannot be used as tools of any sort. Lastly, a cantrip lacks the power to duplicate any other spell effects.
Whatever manifestation the cantrip takes, it remains in effect only as long as the wizard concentrates. Wizards typically use cantrips to impress common folk, amuse children, and brighten dreary lives.

Common tricks with cantrips include tinklings of ethereal music, brightening faded flowers, glowing balls that float over the caster's hand, puffs of wind to flicker candles, spicing up aromas and flavors of bland food, and little whirlwinds to sweep dust under rugs. Combined with the unseen servant spell, these are the tools to make housekeeping and entertaining simpler for the wizard.

This spell enables the wizard to alter the appearance of his form - including clothing and equipment - to appear one foot shorter or taller; thin, fat, or in between; human, humanoid, or any other generally man-shaped bipedal creature. The caster cannot duplicate a specific individual. The spell does not provide the abilities or mannerisms of the chosen form.

The duration of the spell is 2d6 rounds plus two additional rounds per level of experience of the spellcaster.

The DM may allow a saving throw for disbelief under certain circumstances: for example, if the caster acts in a manner obviously inconsistent with his chosen role. The spell does not alter the perceived tactile (i.e., touch) properties of the caster or his equipment, and the ruse can be discovered this way.

This spell affects any single person it is cast upon. The term person includes any bipedal human, demihuman, or humanoid of man-size or smaller, such as brownies, dryads, dwarves, elves, gnolls, gnomes, goblins, half-elves, halflings, half-orcs, hobgoblins, humans, kobolds, lizard men, nixies, orcs, pixies, sprites, troglodytes, and others. Thus, a 10th-level fighter could be charmed, but an ogre could not.
The person receives a saving throw vs. spell to avoid the effect, with any adjustment due to Wisdom (see Table 5). If the person receives damage from the caster group in the same round the charm is cast an additional bonus of +1 per hit point of damage received is added to the victim's saving throw.
If the spell recipient fails his saving throw, he regards the caster as a trusted friend and ally to be heeded and protected. The spell does not enable the caster to control the charmed creature as if it were an automaton, but any word or action of the caster is viewed in the most favorable way.
Thus, a charmed person would not obey suicide command, but he might believe the caster if assured that the only chance to save the caster's life is for the person to hold back an on rushing red dragon for "just a round or two." Note also that the spell does not endow the caster with linguistic capabilities beyond those he normally possesses (i.e., he must speak the victim's language to communicate his commands).
The duration of the spell is a function of the charmed person's Intelligence and is tied to the saving throw. The spell may be broken if a successful saving throw is rolled, and this saving throw is checked on a periodic basis, according to the creature's Intelligence (see the following table). If the caster harms, or attempts to harm, the charmed person by some overt action, or if a dispel magic spell is successfully cast upon the charmed person, the charm spell is broken.
If two or more charm effects simultaneously affect a creature, the result is decided by the DM. This could range from one effect being clearly dominant, to the subject being torn by conflicting desires, to new saving throws that could negate both spells.
Note that the subject has full memory of the events that took place while he was charmed.

Time Between Checks for Intelligence Score of 3 or less: 3 months
Time Between Checks for Intelligence Score of 4 to 6: 2 months
Time Between Checks for Intelligence Score of 7 to 9: 1 month
Time Between Checks for Intelligence Score of 10 to 12: 3 weeks

Note: The period between checks is the time period during which the check occurs. When to roll the check during this time is determined (randomly or by selection) by the DM. The roll is made secretly.

Magical writing cannot be read, other than to know it is magical, but the spell is often useful when deciphering treasure maps.

To understand spoken words, the caster must touch the creature who is speaking. To understand written words, the caster must touch the writings. This spell does not let the caster speak/read the language, only to understand the language. Translation does not necessarily impart understanding (A cryptically worded letter translated is still cryptic.), nor does it permit another creature to understand the caster.

Example: A caster could touch a goblin to understand it, but should another nearby goblin also be speaking, the caster could not understand the other goblin. Neither goblin could understand the caster.

Crystal dust 
This spell causes the dust of crystals to resonate with magical auras. The dust will react when sprinkled on magical items, giving them a soft yellow glow for the duration of the spell.

Alternatively, the dust may be inhaled by any creature whose eyes (pupil, iris, and whites) will glow bright yellow and be able to see the auras of magical items and effects. When used in this way, the range of the vision is 30', and the vision is blocked by any amount of stone or metal, or an inch of wood or dirt. Unlike other versions of this spell, the creatures need not concentrate to see these auras. Once the spell runs its course, the subject (if the dust was inhaled) is rendered blind for 1 minute, and semi blind for 1 minute after that. Semi blind effects are similar to those of poor lighting.

The caster may enchant as much dust as they can hold in their hands. A 2" crystal will create 2 doses, which is enough dust to cover a 10x10 area. Large creatures need 3 doses, huge need 10, gargantuan need 30. Small creatures need 1/3, tiny need 1/10. The crystal must already be in dust form before the spell is cast.

Doorways or portals to extradimensional spaces are also detected, although anything hidden within remains unseen.

Detect phase does not reveal the location of creatures or objects concealed by magical invisibility or illusion.

It's possible that a wizard might not find a secret compartment in the area of effect if the compartment is behind or under another object that covers it completely.

This spell causes any words spoken by the wizard or anyone within 10 feet of him to appear on a piece of paper or the blank page of a book. It is useful for recording conversations, verbal agreements, interrogations, or even notes or observations if the wizard doesn't want to take the time to write them down himself. Generally, a person reading aloud takes about one to five minutes to read a page, depending on how many words are on page.

Foreign languages are not translated, although foreign words are given the correct alphabetic spelling in the wizard's native tongue; for example, the phrase "cest la vie" would appear as it does here, with no English translation, but a phrase or name in Arabic or Chinese would not be transcribed in those alphabets. Magical spells and invocations are not recorded, so this spell can't be used to create a backup copy of a scroll even as it's read by the wizard, but a clever wizard may be able to record a magical item's command word if an enemy within ranges uses it while the spell is in effect.

he material component for this spell is the blank page, scroll, or paper that the dictation will appear on. This must be prepared with a special wash of vinegar, which brings the cost to 10 gold pieces per page so readied.

Materials
1sp worth of silver or lead dust 
The caster holds an item in their hand, speaks the words to the spell and sprinkles silver dust over the object, summoning from within the range an item of similar type and material. The spell will summon the closest object of a given type. Items within boxes or rooms that are lined with lead or silver are immune to this spell, as are objects made of lead or silver, or enchanted objects. If no similar object is within range, the spell fizzles.

A wizard could hold a sword in one hand while casting this spell to summon the nearest other sword to them. Items must be of the same material (steel sword summons a steel sword) and general type (arming sword could summon a scimitar, but not a dagger). Objects to be summoned must be independent, thus trying to duplicate brick near a brick building would only succeed if there was a loose brick somewhere nearby.

The only way to call a specific item is to have that item be the closest of its kind to you. If trying to summon a specific key, the caster would need to be positioned closer to that key than to any others, including keys they may have on their person. The spell will not cross planes or pull items from extra dimensional space, such as from within a bag of holding or a portable hole.

Objects that are worn or held are allowed a saving throw vs. spell to avoid being pulled (using the save of their wearer).

This spell causes instant growth of a creature or object, increasing both size and weight. It can be cast only upon a single creature (or a symbiotic or community entity) or upon a single object that does not exceed ten cubic feet in volume per caster level. The object or creature must be seen to be affected.

It grows by up to 10% per level of experience of the wizard, increasing this amount in height, width, and weight. Magical properties are not increased by this spell - a huge sword +1 is still only +1, a staff-sized wand is still only capable of its normal functions, a giant-sized potion merely requires a greater fluid intake to make its magical effects operate, etc. Weight, mass and strength are affected, though. Thus, a table blocking a door would be heavier and more effective, a hurled stein would have more mass (and cause more damage), chains would be more massive, doors thicker, a thin line turned to a sizeable, longer rope, and so on. A creature's hit points, Armor Class, and attack rolls do not change, but damage rolls increase proportionally with size.

For example, a fighter at 160% normal size hits with his long sword and rolls a 6 for damage. The adjusted damage roll is 10 (that is 6 x 1.6 = 9.6, rounded up). Bonuses due to Strength, class, and magic are not altered.

The reverse spell, reduce, negates the enlarge spell or makes creatures or objects smaller. The creature or object loses 10% of its original size for every level of the caster, to a minimum of 10% of the original size. Thereafter, the size shrinks by one-foot increments to less than one foot, by one-inch increments to one inch, and by 1/10-inch increments to a minimum of 1/10 of an inch - the recipient cannot dwindle away to nothingness.

For example, a 16-foot-tall giant reduced by a 15th-level wizard (15 steps) would be reduced to 1.6 feet (in nine steps), then to 6/10 of a foot or 7.2 inches (in one step), and finally to 2.2 inches (in the last five steps). A shrinking object may damage weaker materials affixed to it, but an object will shrink only as long as the object itself is not damaged. Unwilling creatures are allowed a saving throw vs. spell.

A rowboat that has a length of 14', a depth of 2', and a beam of 4' has a volume of 112 cubic feet. A rough volume measurement for a humanoid is: height cubed, divided by 24 (h³/24).

The material component of this spell is a pinch of powdered iron.

Materials
 
The wizard Kerith was noted for his astounding lack of courage in the face of even the most insignificant dangers. He developed this spell early in his career to assist him in his frequent and precipitous withdrawals from combat. When cast, expeditious retreat provides the wizard with an amazing fleetness of foot, enabling him to run in great leaps and bounds. The caster's movement rate is tripled for the duration of the spell, so a wizard with a movement of 12 would be able to run at a rate of 36 while the spell was in effect. In addition, the wizard can jump up to 5 feet in the air or make a 15-foot horizontal leap with ease. The wizard does not have to move while the spell is in effect, but if he moves at all, his unnatural speed and bounds prevent him from taking any other actions except for running- in other words, he can't take a half-move and throw a missile, or charge, cast a spell, or do anything else except move.

The wizard cannot increase his movement further by any means, including additional movement-affecting magical spells or items. Kerith was also noted for his cynical observation to a companion.

When this spell is cast, the creature(s) or object(s) affected immediately assumes the mass of a piece of down. Rate of falling is instantly changed to a mere two feet per second (120 feet per round), and no damage is incurred upon landing while the spell is in effect. However, when the spell duration ceases, normal rate of fall occurs.

The spell can be cast upon the wizard or some other creature or object up to the maximum range and lasts for one round for each level of the wizard. The feather fall affects one or more objects or creatures in a 10-foot cube, as long as the maximum weight of the creatures or objects does not exceed a combined total of 200 pounds plus 200 pounds per level of the spellcaster.

For example, a 2nd-level wizard has a range of 20 yards, a duration of two rounds, and a weight limit of 600 pounds when casting this spell.

The spell works only upon free-falling, flying, or propelled objects (such as missiles). It does not affect a sword blow or a charging creature.

Note that the spell can be effectively combined with gust of wind and similar spells.

Materials
a brass brazier with charcoal and 1.000 gp worth of incense and herbs 
This spell enables the caster to attempt to summon a familiar to act as his aide and companion. Familiars are typically small creatures, such as cats, frogs, ferrets, crows, hawks, snakes, owls, ravens, toads, weasels, or even mice. A creature acting as a familiar can benefit a wizard, conveying its sensory powers to its master, conversing with him, and serving as a guard/scout/spy as well. A wizard can have only one familiar at a time, however he has no control over what sort of creature answers the summoning, if any at all come.

The creature is always more intelligent than others of its type (typically 2 or 3 Int points), and its bond with the wizard confers upon it an exceptionally long life. The wizard receives the heightened senses of his familiar, which grants the wizard a +1 bonus to all surprise die rolls. Normal familiars have 2-4 hit points plus 1 hit point per caster level, and an Armor Class of 7 (due to size, speed, etc.).

The wizard has an empathic link with the familiar and can issue it mental commands at a distance of up to one mile. Note that empathic responses from the familiar are generally fairly basic - while able to communicate simple thoughts, these are often overwhelmed by instinctual responses. Thus a ferret familiar spying on a band of orcs in the woods might lose its train of thought upon sighting a mouse. Certainly its communications to its master would be tinged with fear of the "big ones" it was spying on! The caster cannot see through the familiar's eyes.

If separated from the caster, the familiar loses 1 hit point each day, and dies if reduced to 0 hit points. When the familiar is in physical contact with its wizard, it gains the wizards saving throws against special attacks. If a special attack would normally cause damage, the familiar suffers no damage if the saving throw is successful and half damage if the saving throw is failed.

If the familiar dies, the wizard must successfully roll an immediate system shock check or die. Even if he survives this check, the wizard loses 1 point from his Constitution when the familiar dies.

The power of the conjuration is such that it can be attempted but once per year. When the wizard decides to find a familiar, he must load a brass brazier with charcoal. When this is burning well, he adds 1.000 gp worth of incense and herbs. The spell incantation is then begun and must be continued until the familiar comes or the casting time is finished. The DM secretly determines all results. Note that most familiars are not inherently magical, nor does a dispel magic spell send them away.

Deliberate mistreatment, failure to feed and care for the familiar, or continuous unreasonable demands have adverse effects on the familiar's relationship with its master. Purposely arranging the death of one's own familiar incurs great disfavor from certain powerful entities, with dire results.

On a d20 roll of 1-5 a black Cat is summoned, granting excellent night vision & superior hearing
On a d20 roll of 6-7 a Crow is summoned, granting excellent vision
On a d20 roll of 8-9 a Hawk is summoned, granting very superior distance vision
On a d20 roll of 10-11 a Owl is summoned, granting night vision equal to human daylight vision and superior hearing
On a d20 roll of 12-13 a Toad is summoned, granting wide-angle vision
On a d20 roll of 14-15 a Weasel is summoned, granting superior hearing & very superior olfactory power

Those with favorable reactions tend to be very impressed with the spellcaster and make an effort to be his Friends and help him, as appropriate to the situation.
Officious bureaucrats might decide to become helpful; surly gate guards might wax informative; attacking orcs night spare the caster's life, taking him captive instead. When the spell wears off, the creatures realize that they have been influenced, and their reactions are determined by the DM.

By holding a ruler at arms length and observing at least one of two points within range, the caster can know, to 1 sig. fig., the distance between the two objects or points. One of the points must be within range and sight, the other must be known, either through visual observation or logical deduction.

Example: A caster stands on the bank of a river on a moonless, foggy night. The other bank of the river is unseen and an unknown distance away. The caster could use this spell to determine the width of the river. The caster could not, however, measure the distance between this bank and "the closest tree". The caster could determine the distance from where they're standing to their house though, since the house is a known and fixed point in space.

A grease spell covers a material surface with a slippery layer of a fatty, greasy nature. Any creature entering the area or caught in it when the spell is cast must save vs. spell or slip, skid, and fall.

Those who successfully save can reach the nearest non-greased surface by the end of the round. Those who remain in the area are allowed a saving throw each round until they escape the area. The DM should adjust saving throws by circumstance; for example, a creature charging down an incline that is suddenly greased has little chance to avoid the effect, but its ability to exit the affected area is almost assured!

The spell can also be used to create a greasy coating on an item - a rope, ladder rungs, weapon handle, etc.
Material objects not in use are always affected by this spell, while creatures wielding or employing items receive a saving throw vs. spell to avoid the effect. If the initial saving throw is failed, the creature immediately drops the item. A saving throw must be made each round the creature attempts to use the greased item.

The caster can end the effect with a single utterance; otherwise it lasts for three rounds plus one round per level.

The abjurer places one hand on the door, closes their eyes, and intones the words to the spell in a low voice.

A wizard of 4 or more experience levels higher than the spellcaster can open the held portal at will. A knock spell or a successful dispel magic spell can negate the hold portal.

The caster may channel the spell for as long as they like, and the duration begins from the point at which they stop channeling.

E.G. Adea and her companions are being chased by goblins down a hallway when she comes to a door. Running through and slamming it shut, she tries to cast Hold Portal to buy the party some time. Initiative is rolled and Adea comes out on top. She begins to channel the hold portal spell, giving the rest of her party time to come up with a plan. Several hours later a plan has been made, and she stops the channeling and steps away. The door will continue to be held for a number of rounds equal to her level if the goblins are still interested.

As a ritual, this spell can be made permanent. The caster prepares a special ink made with fine iron powder and a dark fluid. One standard door [20 square feet] can be appropriately inked in one day, with one ounce, and one dexterity check by the spell caster. Larger doors require more of each, although one failed dexterity check and the entire door will need to be washed and started over again. Unless exceptionally large or unusual, a doorframe can then be inked in one day, with one ounce, and one dexterity check. The spell is then cast into the ink, door, and frame, binding them together permanently. The ink now stains the door, but with effort or time and exposure will fade. If enough ink is removed or faded, the spell breaks.

Different fluids can provide different additional affects.

Fine Wine: 1gp/oz. No special effect.

Blood: Fresh caster's blood that drains 2hp / oz. The door emits an unearthly wail when something larger than a rat approaches it. The wail is in the voice of the caster, starts softly when something is within 30', and gets louder until it is a full screech just before the door is touched. Contact with the door ends the wail until nothing is within proximity again.

Tar thinned with exceptionally high prof alcohol: 5gp/oz The door becomes sticky to the touch, requiring a strength check to be removed.

1 year fermented poultice [Wooden doors only]: The door grows brambles and spikes that snare clothes, and rip exposed flesh.

Until that time the success of the spell is unknown. Note that the subsequent suggestion is not a spell, but simply a vocalized urging (the caster must speak a language the creature understands for this spell to work).

Creatures that successfully roll their saving throws are not under hypnotic influence. Those who are exceptionally wary or hostile save with +1 to +3 bonuses. If the spell is cast at an individual creature that meets the caster's gaze, the saving throw is made with a penalty of -2.

A creature that fails its saving throw does not remember that the caster enspelled it.

When an identify spell is cast, magical items subsequently touched by the wizard can be identified. The eight hours immediately preceeding the casting of the spell must be spent purifying the items and removing influences that would corrupt and blur their magical auras. If this period is interrupted, it must be begun again. When the spell is cast, each item must be handled in turn by the wizard. Any consequences of this handling fall fully upon the wizard and may end the spell, although the wizard is allowed any applicable saving throw.

The chance of learning a piece of information about an item is equal to 10% per level of the caster, to a maximum of 90%, rolled by the DM. Any roll of 96-00 indicates a false reading (91-95 reveal nothing). Only one function of a multi-function item is discovered per handling (i.e., a 5-th level wizard could attempt to determine the nature of five different items, five different functions of a single item, or any combination of the two). If any attempt at reading fails, the caster cannot learn any more about that item until he advances a level. Note that some items, such as special magical tomes, cannot be identified with this spell.

The item never reveals its exact attack or damage bonuses, although the fact that it has few or many bonuses can be determined. If it has charges, only a general indication of the number of charges remaining is learned: powerful (81% - 100% of the total possible charges), strong (61% - 80%), moderate (41% - 60%), weak (6% - 40%), or faint (five charges or less). The faint result takes precedence, so a fully charges ring of three wishes always appears to be only faintly charged.

After casting the spell and determining what can be learned from it, the wizard loses 8 points of Constitution. He must rest for one hour to recover each point of Constitution. If the 8-point loss drops the spellcaster below a Constitution of 1, he falls unconscious. Consciousness is not regained until full Constitution is restored, which takes 24 hours (one point per three hours for an unconscious character).

The material components of this spell are a pearl (of at least 100gp value) and an owl feather steeped in wine, with the infusion drunk prior to spellcasting. If a luckstone is powdered and added to the infusion, the divination becomes much more potent: exact bonuses or charges can be determined, and the functions of a multi-functional item can be learned from a single reading.

At the DM's option, certain properties of an artifact or relic might also be learned.

For this spell to work, the potion to be identified must be in a transparent glass container. The caster must create a clean environment in which to cast the spell. No potions or magic items may be within 30 feet of the caster during the preparation or casting. Once the area is clear, the powdered pearl is used to create a small circle on a table or other flat and clean surface. Within this circle the potion is placed. The caster uses the owl feather to make circles around the potion, which stir the fluids within. During this time, the feather begins to disintegrate and, if all is done right, falls onto the powdered pearl. When no more feather is left, the pearl/owl powder takes on a colored glow to which the potion reacts. Depending on the reaction of potion and powder, the caster can determine the type of the potion.

The caster learns the type of the potion through this spell, but only for potions they know. Part of learning this spell is also learning different common types of potions. It is possible to learn the type of a potion without knowing what that type of potion does. This mostly comes into play with rare, obscure, or unique potions.

A glass lens 
This spell calls into being a disruptive magical lens that warps space around it. The barrier reaches from the top of the subject to the bottom, curves out by 10% of the height, and stands 3' in front of the target. All melee attacks made through the shield suffer -2 to hit, while missile attacks suffer -3 to hit. These penalties affect people on both sides of the shield. Because the light is bent, the lens produces a very visible effect, distorting and enlarging the subject of the spell to viewers on the other side of it.

To cast this spell, the wizard places a well made glass lens on the subject of the spell. This lens then vanishes to become the lens before the subject. When the spell expires, the glass lens reforms in midair before the creature, falling to the ground and possibly breaking. If this spell is cast on the caster themselves, they will know exactly when the spell is about to expire and can catch the lens before it falls.

The somatic components are minimal, only involving placing the lens on the subject, while the verbal components must be spoken at or above conversational tones.

This spell creates a luminous glow, equal to torchlight, within a fixed radius of the spell's center. Objects in darkness beyond this sphere can be seen, at best, as vague and shadowy shapes. The spell is centered on a point selected by the caster, and he must have a line of sight and unobstructed path for the spell when it is cast. Light can spring from air, rock, metal, wood, or almost any similar substance.

The effect is immobile unless it is specifically centered on a moveable object or mobile creature. If this spell is cast upon a creature, the applicable magic resistance and saving throw rolls must be made. Successful resistance negates the spell, while a successful saving throw indicates that the spell is centered immediately behind the creature, rather than upon the creature itself. Light taken into an area of magical darkness does not function, but if cast directly against magical darkness negates it (but only for the duration of the light spell, if the darkness effect is continual).

Light centered on the visual organs of a creature blinds it, reducing its attack rolls and saving throws by 4 and worsening its Armor Class by 4. The caster can end the spell at any time by uttering a single word.

The material component is a firefly or a piece of phosphorescent moss.

Part of the creature you wish to summon 
By crushing the dried remains of a harmless glowing creature (like a firefly) and blowing it from their hand, the caster conjures a small swarm of the creatures that shed soft light in the area. If larger harmless glowing creatures are to be summoned, such as a puffball, only one is summoned and it sheds light in a 5' diameter circle.

The creatures can be commanded using only a look [requires line of sight] and a gesture with only a moments focus, and will fly/walk/crawl/swim/hover at their typical movement rate. Most flying insects will move around walking pace.

At 4th level, the caster may reduce the duration of the spell to increase the area covered. Every time the duration is decreased by half, the volume is doubled, with each new volume created being an independently controllable swarm. For example, if the duration is cut in half, the caster has two swarms that each light a 10' cube. The caster cluster them to create one big light, or split them into two groups, one following herself, and one following another party member.

The spell can be dismissed at will.

The caster touches a living plant or the earth itself and enchants all living plants within the area of effect to bioluminesce. If there are no living plants in the area, or the plants are disconnected (across a chasm, floating, etc.), the effect will not spread. The Enchanter need not spread the light to all plants in the area, but the effect must spread from the caster. For example, the caster may light all plants in a cross around them, but may not cause plants 60 feet away to be lit without a path of lit plants there.

If the caster maintains light concentration, the effect will continue to spread within the AoE as the caster moves.

The spell can be dismissed while still within the area of it by touching a glowing plant. The effect will then fade out over a few minutes.

Once daylight reaches the enchanted plants, their magic fades away.

With a clap of their hands, a snap of their fingers, or some other non-language sound, the caster instantly and perfectly lights up a room or other enclosed area. The area must have clear boundaries as to what constitutes in or out of the room, although the size of the room does not matter, be it a peasant's hovel or a dragon's den.

At the time of the casting, the rooms to be lit must be chosen. This can be either a general idea (rooms centered on the one I'm standing in) or specifically chosen (living room, kitchen, bedroom, but not the closet, and cellar). If many areas are to be lit, they must all be adjacent - a wizard may not light the room they are in, skip the hallway, and light the room at the end of the hallway.

The light can be doused with the same action and sound used to create it.

Use of the magic missile spell creates up to five missiles of magical energy that dart forth from the wizards fingertip and unerringly strike their target. This includes enemy creatures in a melee. The target creature must be seen or otherwise detected to be hit, however, so near-total concealment, such as that offered by arrow slits, can render the spell ineffective. Likewise, the caster must be able to identify the target. He cannot direct a magic missile to "Strike the commander of the legion," unless he can single out the commander from the rest of the soldiers. Specific parts of a creature cannot be singled out. Inanimate objects (locks, etc.) cannot be damaged by the spell, and any attempt to do so wastes the missiles to no effect. Against creatures, each missile inflicts 1d4+1 points of damage.

For every two extra levels of experience, the wizard gains an additional missile - he has two at 3rd level, three at 5th level, four at 7th level, etc., up to a total of five missiles at 9th level. If the wizard has multiple missile capability, he can have them strike a single target creature or several creatures, as desired.

Blood drawn from the caster during the casting of the spell 
The caster draws some of their own life force and converts it into mana. In effect, they gain 3 mp for each HP they lose.

When this spell is cast, the wizard can whisper messages and receive replies with little chance of being overheard. When the
spell is cast, the wizard secretly or openly points his finger at each creature to be included in the spell effect. Up to one creature per level can be included. When the wizard whispers, the whispered message travels in a straight line and is audible to all of the involved creatures within 30 feet, plus 10 feet per level of the caster. The creatures who receive the message can whisper a reply that is heard by the spellcaster.

Note that there must be an unobstructed path between the spellcaster and the recipients of the spell. The message must be in a language the caster speaks; this spell does not by itself confer understanding upon the recipients.

This spell is most often used to conduct quick and private conferences when the caster does not wish to be overheard.

a drop of the liquid 
This spell transmutes one type of liquid into an equal amount of a different, nonmagical fluid (water, wine, blood, oil, apple cider, etc.). The caster must touch the fluid itself (not simply its container) for the spell to take effect.

Magical liquids (such as potions) receive a saving throw vs. disintegration with a +3 bonus to avoid the spell's effect. Fluids can be transmuted only into nonmagical liquids; it is not possible to change a magical liquid into another type of magical liquid. Poisons may be rendered harmless through use of this spell, but the spell has no effect on poisons already consumed.

Living creatures are unaffected by the spell, excluding those from the elemental plane of water. Such creatures are allowed a saving throw vs. spell. Failure results in ld4 points of damage per level of the caster, while success indicates half damage. Only one creature can be affected by a single casting of this spell, regardless of the creature's size.

The material component is a drop of the liquid that the caster intends to create, which must be placed on the wizards tongue and consumed. Creating poisons through use of this spell is especially dangerous.

a bit of hair from the type of animal to be conjured 
By means of this spell, the caster conjures a normal animal to serve him as a mount. The animal serves willingly and well, but at the expiration of the spell duration it disappears, returning to its own place. The type of mount gained by this spell depends on the level of the caster; of course, a caster can choose a lesser mount if desired. Available mounts include the following:

Between 1st to 3rd level a mule or light horse
Between 4th to 7th level a draft horse or war horse
Between 8th to 12th level a camel
Between 13th to 14th level an elephant (and howdah at 18th level)
Starting at 15th level a griffon (and saddle at 18th level)

The mount does not come with any riding gear, unless it is of a class lower than the caster would normally be entitled to; thus a 4th-level wizard can gain a war horse without saddle and harness, or a light horse with saddle and harness. The statistics of the animal gained are typical of all creatures of the same class. The mount disappears when slain.

Thus, a wizard jumping from a 10-foot wall could glide up to 50 feet. Gliding characters have a movement rate of 12 and Maneuverability Class E.

A wizard attempting to carry more than his normal weight allowance plummets to the earth upon takeoff.

If the object bearing Nystul's magical aura has an identify spell cast on it or is similarly examined, the examiner has a 50% chance of recognizing that the aura has been placed to mislead the unwary. Otherwise, the aura is believed and no amount of testing reveals what the true magic is.

a bit of fleece 
This spell creates the illusion of any object, creature, or force, as long as it is within the boundaries of the spell's area of effect. The illusion is visual and affects all believing creatures (undead are immune) that view it. It does not create sound, smell, or temperature. Effects that depend on these senses usually fail. The illusion lasts until struck by an opponent - unless the spellcaster causes the illusion to react appropriately - or until the wizard ceases concentration upon the spell (due to desire, moving, or a successful attack that causes damage).

Saving throws for illusions are explained under "Illusions" in Chapter 7: Magic and under "Adjudicating Illusions" at the beginning of Appendix 2.

Creatures that disbelieve the illusion see it for what it is and add +4 to associates' saving throws if this knowledge can be communicated effectively. Creatures believing the illusion are subject to its effects, again as explained under Illusions.
The illusionary effect can be moved by the caster within the limits of the area of effect. The DM has to rule on the effectiveness of this spell; detailed guidelines are outlined under "Illusions" in Chapter 7: Magic and under "Adjudicating Illusions" at the beginning of Appendix 2.

When this spell is cast, it creates a magical barrier around the recipient at a distance of 1 foot. The barrier moves with the recipient and has three major effect:

First, all attacks made by evil creatures against the protected creature suffer -2 penalties to attack rolls; any saving throws caused by such attacks are made with +2bonuses.

Second, any attempt to possess or exercise mental control over the protected creature is blocked by this spell. Note that the protection does not prevent a vampire's charm itself, but it does prevent the exercise of mental control through the barrier. Likewise, a possessing life force is merely kept out. It would not be expelled if in place before the protection is cast.

Third, the spell prevents bodily contact by creatures of an extraplanar or conjured nature. This cause the natural weapon attacks require touching the protected being. Animals or monsters summoned or conjured by spells or similar magic are likewise hedged from the character.

This protection ends if the protected character makes a melee attack against or tries to force the barrier against the blocked creature.

To complete this spell, the wizard must trace a 3-foot diameter circle on the floor with powdered silver.

This spell can be reversed to become protection from good; the second and third benefits remain unchanged. The material component for the reverse is a circle of powdered iron.

This nefarious spell affects the victim's life energies, increasing any fatigue or exhaustion currently possesses. Alter and well-rested characters suddenly become tired and sluggish, and characters who are already fatigue may be reduced to near-helplessness. In effect, the ray adds one level of fatigue or encumbrance to the victim. Moderately encumbered characters suffer a -1 penalty to attack rolls; heavily encumbered characters suffer a -2 penalty to attack rolls and a +1 Armor class penalty to attack rolls and a +3 Armor class penalty.(Assume that monsters suffer a -1 penalty to their attack rolls and reduce their movement rates by 33%). The victim is allowed a saving throw to negate the spell's effects.

If you are using the fatigue rules from the Player's option; Combat &tactics book, this spell operates in a slightly different manner-fresh characters become fatigued, gaining one level of encumbrance; fatigued characters become exhausted, gaining two levels of encumbrance; and exhausted characters collapse in a quivering heap, unable to move or attack.

It is likely that combat capable creatures will attack the caster, unless restrained by a Magic Circle spell or some other means.

Creatures must be summoned into a habitable space. A fish could not be summoned unless there was an appropriate body of water for them to inhabit. A salt water fish could not be summoned into a fresh water tank.

When a wizard casts a sleep spell, he causes a comatose slumber to come upon one or more creatures (other than undead and certain other creatures specifically excluded from the spell's effects).

All creatures to be affected by the sleep spell must be within 30 feet of each other. The number of creatures that can be affected is a function of Hit Dice or levels.

The spell affects 2d4 Hit Dice of monsters. Monsters with 4+3 Hit Dice (4 Hit Dice plus 3 hit points) or more are unaffected. The center of the area of effect is determined by the spellcaster. The creatures with the least Hit Dice are affected first, and partial effects are ignored.

For example, a wizard casts sleep at three kobolds, two gnolls, and an ogre. The roll (2d4) result is 4. All the kobolds and one gnoll are affected (1/2 + 1/2 + 1/2 + 2 = 3 1/2 Hit Dice).

Note that the remainder is not enough to affect the last gnoll or the ogre.

Slapping or wounding awakens affected creatures but normal noise does not. Awakening requires one entire round. Magically sleeping opponents can be attacked with substantial bonuses (see Combat, page 90).

The material component for this spell is a pinch of fine sand, rose petals, or a live cricket.

a drop of bitumen and a live spider 
A spider climb spell enables the recipient to climb and travel upon vertical surfaces as well as a giant spider, or even hang upside down from ceilings. Unwilling victims must be touched and are then allowed a saving throw vs. spell to negate the effect. The affected creature must have bare hands and feet in order to climb in this manner, at a movement rate of 6 (3 if at all encumbered).
During the course of the spell, the recipient cannot handle objects that weigh less than a dagger (one pound), for such objects stick to his hands and feet.

Thus a wizard will find it virtually impossible to cast spells if under a spider climb spell. Sufficient force can pull the recipient free; the DM can assign a saving throw based on circumstances, the strength of the force, and so on.

For example, a creature with a Strength of 12 might pull the subject free if the subject fails a saving throw vs. paralyzation (a moderately difficult saving throw). The caster can end the spell effect with a word.

The material components of this spell are a drop of bitumen and a live spider, both of which must be eaten by the spell recipient.

The caster enchants the spider (or webs) with this spell. Upon eating the enchanted components, a creature's hands and feet become sticky and the creature gains the ability to climb like a spider. This includes sheer surfaces, over hangs, spider webs, etc. To fully gain these powers, the creature must be barefoot, as the spell only affects the creature's body and not their gear.

Because the creature's hands are sticky, objects of 1lb or less cannot be manipulated. Casters may have a hard time with spells that require material components (being unable to cast with components that weigh a pound or less). Similarly, trying to remove a creature enchanted thusly from a wall (pull or knock off) requires a strength check.

A spook spell enables the wizard to play upon natural fears to cause the target creature to perceive the spellcaster as someone or something inimical. Without actually knowing what this is, the wizard merely advances threateningly upon the creature. If a successful saving throw vs. spell is not made, the creature turns and flees at maximum speed as far from the wizard as possible, though items carried are not dropped. The creature has a saving throw penalty of -1 for every two experience levels of the caster, to a maximum of -6 at 12th level.

Note that a natural (unmodified) roll of 20 automatically succeeds, regardless of saving throw penalties. Although the caster does not actually pursue the fleeing creature, a phantasm from its own mind does. Each round after the initial casting, the creature receives another saving throw, without penalty, until it successfully saves and the spell is broken.

In any event, the spell functions only against creatures with Intelligences of 2 or more, and undead are not affected at all.

Materials
a slug, which is hurled at the creatures 
A taunt spell enables the caster to jape and jeer effectively at a single type of creature with an Intelligence of 2 or greater.
The caster need not speak the language of the creatures. His words and sounds have real meaning for the subject creature or creatures: challenging, insulting, and generally irritating and angering the listeners. Those failing to save vs. spell rush forth in fury to do battle with the spellcaster.

All affected creatures attack the spellcaster in melee if physically capable of doing so, seeking to use body or hand-held weapons rather than missile weapons or spells.

Separation of the caster from the victim by an impenetrable or uncrossable boundary (a wall of fire, a deep chasm, a formation of set pikemen) causes the spell to break. If the caster taunts a mixed group, he must choose the type of creature to be affected. Creatures commanded by a strong leader (i.e., with a Charisma bonus, with higher Hit Dice, etc.) might gain a saving throw bonus of +1 to +4, at the DMs discretion.

If used in conjunction with a ventriloquism spell, the creatures may attack the apparent source, depending upon their Intelligence, a leader's presence, and so on.

The material component is a slug, which is hurled at the creatures to be taunted.

Tenser's Floating Disc

AoE
Special 
Duration
3 turns+ 1 turn/level 
Damage
 
Materials
a drop of mercury 
With this spell, the caster creates the slightly concave, circular plane of force known as Tenser's floating disc (after the famed wizard whose greed and ability to locate treasure are well known).

The disc is three feet in diameter and holds 100 pounds of weight per level of the wizard casting the spell. The disc floats at approximately three feet above the ground at all times and remains level. It floats along horizontally within its range of 20 yards at the command of the caster, and will accompany him at a movement rate of no more than 6. If unguided, it maintains a constant interval of six feet between itself and the wizard.

If the spellcaster moves beyond range (by moving faster, or by such means as a teleport spell, or by trying to take it more than three feet from the surface beneath it), or if the spell duration expires, the floating disc winks out of existence and whatever it was supporting crashes to the surface beneath it.

The material component of the spell is a drop of mercury.

Duration

Damage
 
Materials
a piece of string and a bit of wood 
The unseen servant is a non-visible, mindless, and shapeless force, used to step and fetch, open unstuck doors, and hold chairs, as well as to clean and mend. It is not strong, but unfailingly obeys the command of the wizard.

It can carry out only one activity at a time and can move only light-weight items - carry a maximum of 20 pounds or push or pull 40 pounds across a smooth surface. It can open only normal doors, drawers, lids, etc.

The unseen servant cannot fight, nor can it be killed, as it is a force rather than a creature. It can be magically dispelled, or eliminated after receiving 6 points of damage from area-effect spells, breath weapons, or similar attacks. If the caster attempts to send it beyond the allowed radius, the spell ends immediately.

The material components of the spell are a piece of string and a bit of wood.

Materials
a parchment rolled up into a small cone 
This spell enables the wizard to make his voice - or someone else's voice - or a similar sound seem to issue from someplace else, such as from another creature, a statue, from behind a door, down a passage, etc.

The spellcaster can speak in any language that he knows, or make any sound that he can normally make. With respect to such voices and sounds, anyone rolling a successful saving throw vs. spell with a -2 penalty detects the ruse.

If cast in conjunction with other illusions, the DM may rule greater penalties or disallow an independent saving throw against this spell in consideration of its contribution to the total effect of the combined illusion.

The material component of this spell is a parchment rolled up into a small cone.

By casting this spell, the wizard creates a billowing wall of misty vapors in any area within the spell range. The wall of fog obscures all sight, normal and infravision, beyond two feet. The caster may create less vapor if he wishes.

The wall must be a roughly cubic or rectangular mass, at least ten feet wide in its smallest dimension.

The misty vapors persist for three or more rounds. Their duration can be halved by a moderate wind, and they can be blown away by a strong wind.

The material component is a pinch of split dried peas.

Materials
a pinch of diamond dust (about 10 gp worth) and a pigment or pigments 
When this spell is cast, the wizard is able to inscribe, visibly or invisibly, his personal rune or mark, as well as up to six additional characters of smaller size.

A wizard mark spell enables the caster to etch the rune upon stone, metal, or any softer substance without harm to the material upon which the mark is placed. If an invisible mark is made, a detect magic spell will cause it to glow and be visible (though not necessarily understandable).

Detect invisibility, true seeing, a gem of seeing, or a robe of eyes will likewise expose an invisible wizard mark. A read magic spell will reveal the maker's words, if any. The mark cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed by the caster or by an erase spell.
If cast on a living being, normal wear gradually causes the mark to fade.

The material components for this spell are a pinch of diamond dust (about 100 gp worth) and a pigment or pigments for the coloration of the mark. If the mark is to be invisible, the pigments are still used, but the caster uses a stylus of some sort rather than his finger.
