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.

A tiny bell and a piece of very fine silver wire 
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.

It should be noted that attractiveness is not the same as charisma, and this spell has no effect on one's charisma.

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. His hands must be held so as to send forth a fan-like sheet of flames: the wizard's thumbs must touch each other and fingers must be spread. 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.

When this spell is cast, the wizard is able to understand the spoken words of a creature or read an otherwise incomprehensible written message (such as writing in another language). In either case, the wizard must touch the creature or the writing.
Note that the ability to read does not necessarily impart understanding of the material, nor does the spell enable the caster to speak or write an unknown language. Written material can be read at the rate of one page or equivalent per round.
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.

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.

The erase spell removes writings of either magical or mundane nature from a scroll or from one to two pages of paper, parchment, or similar surfaces. It removes explosive runes, glyphs of warding, sepia snake sigils, and wizard marks, but it does not remove illusory script or symbols (see these spells).

Nonmagical writings are automatically erased if the caster is touching them, otherwise the chance for success is 90%. Magical writings must be touched, and are only 30% likely to be erased, plus 5% per caster level, to a maximum of 90% (e.g., 35& for a 1st-level caster, 40% for a 2nd-level caster, etc.).

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.

With a snap of their fingers and at least a drop of water, the wizard snuffs out all applicable fires within the AOE.

At first level, this spell snuffs out all candles, torches, lanterns, small camp fires or other similarly exposed flames. At third level this fire puts out large camp fires and braziers. At fifth level this spell puts out bonfires and small structure fires. At seventh level this spell puts out burning buildings.

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. The affected door will remain shut unless magically opened, physically battered down, or the spell expires.

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.

Nightblossom Nectar: 100gp/oz. The door becomes semi-transparent, allowing those one one side to see details from those within 5' on the other side.

The gestures of the wizard, along with his droning incantation, cause 1d6 creatures within the area to become susceptible to a suggestion - a brief and reasonable-sounding request (see the 3rd-level wizard suggestion spell). The request must be given after the hypnotism spell is cast.

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.

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.

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.

This spell repairs small breaks or tears in objects. It will weld a broken ring, chain link, medallion, or slender dagger, providing but one break exists. Ceramic or wooden objects with multiple breaks can be invisibly rejoined to be as strong as new. A hole in a leather sack or wineskin is completely healed over by a mending spell.

This spell does not, by itself, repair magical items of any type. One turn after the spell is cast, the magic of the joining fades, and the effect cannot be magically dispelled.

The maximum volume of material the caster can mend is one cubic foot per level.

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.

Materials
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.

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.

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.

Materials
 
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 spell creates a magical barrier around the recipient, preventing the attacks of nonintelligent monsters of less than 1 Hit Die. Creatures in this category include normal centipedes, spiders, bats, and rats, but any monster with an Intelligence of low or better can ignore the spell's effects.

The barrier extend about one foot from the protected character's body and moves with him; vermin cannot tolerate the aura's touch and recoil from the character. Any attacks that require physical contact(bites, stings, claws, etc.) Automatically fail, but a creature with a ranged attack can still attack the spell's recipient.

The spell ends if the recipient attacks a creature he has been protected against, or tries to pin or trap the vermin by forcing the repelling barrier against them. The material component for this spell is a cone of pungent incense burned in a tiny bronze censer containing osquip ashes.

By means of a read magic spell, the wizard is able to read magical inscriptions on objects - books, scrolls, weapons, and the like - that would otherwise be totally unintelligible. (The personal books of the wizard, and works already magically read, are intelligible.) This deciphering does not normally invoke the magic contained in the writing, although it may do so in the case of a cursed scroll. Furthermore, once the spell is cast and the wizard has read the magical inscription, he is thereafter able to read that particular writing without recourse to the use of the read magic spell. The duration of the spell is two rounds per level of experience of the spellcaster; the wizard can read one page or its equivalent per round.

The wizard must have a clear crystal or mineral prism, which is not expended, to cast the spell.

By means of this spell, the caster can summon any monster with hit dice equal to or less than that of the caster. The creature summoned is in no way bound to the caster and will likely be frightened, angry, confused, or all at being plucked from wherever they were. It is likely that combat capable creatures will attack the caster, unless restrained by a Magic Circle spell or some other means. The creatures summoned do not necessarily have a way of communicating with the caster.

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.

The casting process is long and involved. The caster must maintain concentration the whole time, and any observers must stay out of the casters way and not distract.

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.

Materials
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.

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.

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.

When this spell is cast, the wizard can alter his appearance and form - including clothing and equipment - to appear taller or shorter; thin, fat, or in between; human, humanoid, or any other generally man-shaped bipedal creature. The caster may only turn into other races or species they are personally familiar with. Simply reading about an Aarakocra is not enough to take the form of one.

The caster's body can undergo a limited physical alteration and his size can be changed up to 50%. If the form selected has wings, the wizard can actually fly, but at only one-third the speed of a true creature of that type, and with a loss of two maneuverability classes (to a minimum of E).

If the form has gills, the caster can breathe under water as long as the spell lasts. However, the caster does not gain any multiple attack routines or additional damage allowed to an assumed form.

The caster's attack rolls, Armor Class, and saving throws do not change. The spell does not confer special abilities, attack forms, or defenses. Once the new form is chosen, it remains for the duration of the spell.

The caster can change back into his own form at will; this ends the spell immediately. A caster who is slain automatically returns to his normal form.

By means of this spell, a caster imbues a finely crafted object with a strong magical aura. The object will radiate magic at a specific "frequency", for lack of a better metaphor. It is similar in nature to flying a flag that is only visible through magic. This frequency can be locked onto with spells that attempt to locate a specific place.

For example, Ginger the Enchanter has created a beacon on a necklace she's given to her younger sister. Ginger then uses a locate object spell to find the beacon and thus her sister, or uses a messenger spell with the beacon as a destination.

The spell affects 50 feet of normal rope (one-inch diameter), plus five feet per caster level. This length is reduced by 50% for every additional inch of thickness and increases by 50% for each 1/2 inch less.

The possible commands are Coil (form a neat, coiled stack), Coil & Knot, Loop, Loop & Knot, Tie & Knot, and the reverses of all of the above (Uncoil, etc.). One command can be given each round. The rope can only enwrap a creature or an object within one foot of it - it does not snake outward - so it must be thrown or hurled near the intended target. Note that the rope itself, and any knots tied in it, are not magical. A typical rope might be AC 6 and take 4 points of slashing damage before breaking.

The rope does not inflict damage of any type, but it can be used as a trip line or to entangle a single opponent who fails a saving throw vs. spell.

When a blur spell is cast, the wizard causes the outline of his form to become blurred, shifting and wavering. This distortion causes all missile and melee combat attacks against the caster to be made with -4 penalties on the first attempt and -2 penalties on all successive attacks.

It also grants the wizard a +1 bonus to his saving throw for any direct magical attack. A detect invisibility spell will not counter this effect, but the 5th-level clerical spell true seeing and similar magic will.

Just as a strength spell can increase a subject's physical power for a time, cat's grace can enhance a subject's Dexterity. All abilities and skills that are Dexterity-based may be affected by an enhanced Dexterity score, including a subject's reaction adjustment, missile attack adjustment, defensive adjustment, Dexterity-based proficiency scores, and adjustments to their abilities. The exact amount of Dexterity gained depends on the subject's class; multi-classed character's use the favorable die.
Rouges: d8; Wizards: d6; Warriors: d6; Priests: d4.

The spell cannot confer a dexterity score of 20 or more and is not cumulative with other dexterity enhancing magical or psionic powers. Subjects without dexterity scores gain a bonus of 1 to AC and a +1 to attack rolls with missiles for the duration of the spell. The material component for this spell is a few whiskers from an elven cat.

Powder or dust of the material desired 
By speaking the words aloud and sprinkling the components on the ground in a circle, the caster creates a simple object of the same material. The sprinkled dust forms into the desired object directly. This object must not weight more than 1 pound per level, be fragile, have moving parts, patterns, or complicated construction. Only one object can be summoned and it is of the same material as the dust.

The duration of the spell may be extended if the caster maintains full concentration on the spell before its duration is over. The caster may not break line of sight with the object and cannot occupy their mind with other things, like conversation, spell casting, or keeping concentration of any kind on another spell.

Examples: Ladder (2'/level), hammer, bowl, dagger, plank, crow bar.
Not examples: Bow, lantern, magnifying glass, rope, chain, hinged box.

The quality, but not the complication, of the object summoned changes as the caster gains levels.
At 1st level: Simple and unremarkable work.
At 4th level: Good.
At 6th level: Fine with simple decorations.

Materials
 
This spell is similar to a light spell, except that it is as bright as full daylight and lasts until negated by magical darkness or by a dispel magic spell. Creatures who suffer penalties in bright light suffer them in this spell's area of effect.

As with the light spell, it can be cast into the air, onto an object, or at a creature. In the third case, the spell affects the space about one foot behind a creature that successfully rolls its saving throw vs. spell. Note that this spell can also blind a creature if it is successfully cast upon the creature's attack rolls, saving throws, and Armor Class by 4.

If the spell is cast on a small object that is then placed in a light-proof covering, the spell's effects are blocked until the covering is removed.

A continual light brought into an area of magical darkness (or vice versa) is temporarily negated so that the otherwise prevailing light conditions exist in the overlapping areas of effect. A direct casting of continual light against a similar or weaker magical darkness cancels both.

This spell eventually consumes the material it is cast upon, but the process takes far longer than the time in the typical campaign. Extremely hard and expensive materials can last hundreds or even thousands of years.

Materials

This spell enables the wizard to specially prepare a garment so as to hold far more than it normally could. A finely sewn gown or robe of high quality material (at least 50gp value) is fashioned so as to contain numerous hand-sized pockets. One dozen is the minimum number.

The deeppockets spell then enables these pockets to hold a total of 100 pounds (five cubic feet in volume) as if it were only 10 pounds of weight. Furthermore, there are no discernible bulges where the special pockets are. At the time of casting, the caster can instead chose to have 10 pockets each holding 10 pounds (1/2 cubic foot volume each).

If the robe or like garment is sewn with 100 or more pockets (200gp minimum cost), 100 pockets can be created to contain one pound of weight and 1/6 cubic foot volume each. Each special pocket is actually an extradimensional holding space.

If the spell duration expires while there is material within the enchanted pockets, or if a successful dispel magic is cast upon the enchanted garment, all the material suddenly appears around the wearer and immediately falls to the ground. The caster can also cause all the pockets to empty with a single command.

In addition to the garment, which is reusable, the material components of this spell are a tiny golden needle and a strip of fine cloth given a half-twist and fastened at the ends.

This spell discovers emanations of evil (or of good in the case of the reverse spell) from any creature, object, or area. Character alignment is not revealed under most circumstances: characters who are strongly aligned, do not stray from their faith, and who are at least 9th level might radiate good or evil if they are intent upon appropriate actions. Powerful monsters, such as ki-rin, send forth emanations of evil or good, even if polymorphed. Aligned undead radiate evil, for it is this power and negative force that enable them to continue existing. An evilly cursed object or unholy water radiates evil, but a hidden trap or an unintelligent viper does not.

The degree of evil (faint, moderate, strong, overwhelming) can be noted.

Note that priests have a more powerful version of this spell.

The spell has a path of detection ten feet wide in the direction in which the mage is facing. The wizard must concentrate - stop, have quiet, and intently seek to detect the aura - for at least one round to receive a reading.

The ESP is stopped by two or more feet of rock, two or more inches of any metal other than lead, or a thin sheet of lead foil.
The wizard employing the spell is able to probe the surface thoughts of one creature per round, getting simple instinctual thoughts from lower order creatures. Probes can continue on the same creature from round to round or can move on to other creatures.
The caster can use the spell to help determine if a creature lurks behind a door, for example, but the ESP does not always reveal what sort of creature it is.

If used as part of a program of interrogation, an intelligent and wary subject receives an initial saving throw. If successful, the creature successfully resists and the spell reveals no additional information. If the saving throw is failed, the caster may learn additional information, according to the DMs ruling.

The creature's Wisdom adjustment applies, as may additional bonuses up to +4, based on the sensitivity of the information sought.

Materials
 
The fog cloud spell can be cast in one of two ways, at the caster's option: as a large, stationary bank of normal fog, or as a harmless fog that resembles the 5th-level wizard spell cloudkill.

As a fog bank, this spell creates a fog of any size and shape up to a maximum 20-foot cube per caster level. The fog obscures all sight, normal and infravision, beyond two feet.

As a cloudkill-like fog, this is a billowing mass of ghastly, yellowish-green vapors, measuring 40 feet x 20 feet x 20 feet. This moves away from the caster at 10 feet per round. The vapors are heavier than air and sink to the lowest level, even pouring down sinkholes and den openings. Very thick vegetation breaks up the fog after it has moved 20 feet into the vegetation.

The only effect of either version is to obscure vision.

A strong breeze will disperse either effect in one round, while a moderate breeze will reduce the spell duration by 50%.

The spell cannot be cast under water.

Copper coins can temporarily be changed to gold pieces, or brass items turned to solid gold, for the spell duration by means of this magic. The area of effect is ten cubic inches per level - i.e., a 1" x 1" x 10" volume or equivalent, equal to about 150gold coins.
Any creature viewing the "gold" is entitled to a saving throw vs. spell, which can be modified by the creature's Wisdom; for every level of the wizard, the creature must subtract 1 from his dice roll. Thus it is unlikely that fools' gold will be detected if it was created by a high-level caster.

If the "gold" is struck hard by an object of cold-wrought iron, there is a slight chance it will revert to its natural state, depending on the material component used to create the - "gold."

If a 25-gp citrine is powdered and sprinkled over the metal as this spell is cast, the chance that cold iron will return it to its true nature is 30%;
if a 50-gp amber stone is powdered and used, there is a 25% chance that iron will dispel the magic;
if a 250-gp topaz is powdered, the chance drops to 10%;
if a 500-gp oriental (corundum) topaz is powdered, there is only a 1% chance that the cold iron will reveal that it is fools' gold.

By means of this spell, the spellcaster causes creatures within the area of effect to forget the events of the previous round (the one minute of time previous to the utterance of the spell).For every three levels of experience of the spellcaster, another minute of past time is forgotten.

This does not negate charm, suggestion, geas, quest, or similar spells, but it is possible that the being who placed such magic upon the recipient could be forgotten.

From one to four creatures can be affected, at the discretion of the caster. If only one is to be affected, the recipient saves vs. spell with a -2 penalty; if two, they save with -1 penalties; if three or four are to be affected, they save normally. All saving throws are adjusted by Wisdom.

A priest's heal or restoration spell, if specially cast for this purpose, will restore the lost memories, as will a limited wish or wish, but no other means will do so.

Although poisons are not considered potable, a victim may not realize that a liquid is poisonous. The victim will not consume a liquid he knows to be poisonous.

No matter how much the creature drinks, its magical thirst is not quenched until the spell ends. During this time, the creature can do nothing but drink or look for liquids to drink.

This spell causes the creature touched to vanish from sight and be undetectable by normal vision or even infravision. Of course, the invisible creature is not magically silenced, and certain other conditions can render the creature detectable. Even allies cannot see the invisible creature or his gear, unless these allies can normally see invisible things or employ magic to do so.

Items dropped or put down by the invisible creature become visible, items picked up disappear if tucked into the clothing or pouches worn by the creature. Note, however, that light never becomes invisible, although a source of light can become so (thus, the effect is that of a light with no visible source).

The spell remains in effect until it is magically broken or dispelled, until the wizard or recipient cancels it, until the recipient attacks any creature, or until 24 hours have passed. Thus, the invisible being can open doors, talk, eat, climb stairs, etc., but if he attacks, he immediately becomes visible, although the invisibility enables him to attack first. Note that the priest spells bless, chant, and prayer are not attacks for this purpose.

All highly Intelligent (Intelligence 13 or more) creatures with 10 or more Hit Dice or levels of experience have a chance to detect invisible objects (they roll saving throws vs. spell; success means they noticed the invisible object).

Materials

An irritation spell affects the epidermis of the subject creatures. Creatures with very thick or insensitive skins (such as buffalo, elephants, scaled creatures, etc.) are basically unaffected. There are two versions of the spell, either of which can be cast from the standard preparation:

Itching. When cast, this causes each subject to feel an instant itching sensation on some portion of its body. If one round is not immediately spent scratching the irritated area, the creature is so affected that the next three rounds are spent squirming and twisting, effectively worsening its Armor Class by 4 and its attack rolls by 2 during this time. Spell preparations are ruined in the first round this spell is in effect, but not in the following three rounds. Doing nothing but scratching the itch for a full round prevents the rest of the effect. If cast at one creature, the saving throw has a -3 penalty; if cast at two creatures, the saving throw has a -1 penalty; and if cast at three or four creatures, the saving throw is normal.

Rash. When a rash is cast, the subject notices nothing for 1d4 rounds, but thereafter its entire skin breaks out in red welts that itch. The rash persists until either a cure disease or dispel magic spell is cast upon it. It lowers Charisma by 1 point per day for each of four days (i.e., maximum Charisma loss is 4 points). After one week, Dexterity is lowered by 1 point also. Symptoms vanish immediately upon the removal of the rash, and all statistics return to normal. This can be cast at one creature only, with a saving throw penalty of -2.

The knock spell opens stuck, barred, locked, held, or wizard-locked doors. It opens secret doors, as well as locked or trick-opening boxes or chests. It also loosens welds, shackles, or chains.

If used to open a wizard-locked door, the spell does not remove the former spell, but simply suspends its functioning for one turn. In all other cases, it permanently opens locks or welds - although the former could be closed and locked again later. It does not raise barred gates or similar impediments (such as a portcullis), nor does it affect ropes, vines, and the like.

Note that the effect is limited by the area; a 3rd-level wizard can cast a knock spell on a door of 30 square feet or less (for example, a standard 4-ft. x 7-ft. door).

Each spell can undo up to two means of preventing egress through a portal. Thus if a door is locked, barred, and held, or triple locked, opening it requires two knock spells. In all cases, the location of the door or item must be known - the spell cannot be used against a wall in hopes of discovering a secret door.

The reverse spell, lock, closes and locks a door or similar closure, provided there is a physical mechanism. It does not create a weld, but it locks physically operated locking mechanisms, set bars, and so on, up to two functions. It cannot affect a portcullis.

When a levitate spell is cast, the wizard can place it upon his person, upon an object, or upon a single creature, subject to a maximum weight limit of 100 pounds per level of experience (e.g., a 3rd-level wizard can levitate up to 300 pounds maximum). If the spell is cast upon the wizard, he can move vertically up or down at a movement rate of 2 per round. If cast upon an object or another creature, the wizard can levitate it at the same speed according to his command.

Horizontal movement is not empowered by this spell, but the recipient could push along the face of a cliff, for example, to move laterally.

The spellcaster can cancel the spell as desired. If the subject of the spell is unwilling, or the object is in the possession of a creature, a saving throw vs. spell is allowed to determine if the levitate spell affects it.

Once cast, the spell requires no concentration, except when changing height. A levitating creature attempting to use a missile weapon finds himself increasingly unstable; the first attack has an attack roll penalty of -1, the second -2, and the third -3, etc., up to a maximum of -5. A full round spent stabilizing allows the creature to begin again at -1. Lack of leverage makes it impossible to cock a medium or heavy crossbow.

Casting this spell draws on the knowledge of all creatures within the range, and poses a subconscious question to these creatures: Where is the landmark in question. The answer is then returned to the caster as long as the location is on the current plane of existence, and there is a general consensus from the creatures in the area. Landmarks must be stationary and singular. Should a stationary landmark be moved, perhaps the "Great Tree of Vitality" has been cut down and moved, the original location of the landmark as it is known to people in the range of the spell is used. Mobile landmarks, like a King's Crown, automatically fail.

Example: Bobo the diviner casts Locate Landmark, with the landmark in question being the secret burial ground of elves. Bobo is in a human dominated region, where nobody knows the answer to this question, so it returns no answer. Bobo then decides to head to a major port where there are many elves, and casts the spell again. The compass in his hand turns to point North West. Bobo doesn't know how far North West it is, so he travels North West for six days before casting the spell again. This time he is in a small elvan port town that allows human visitors. He casts the spell again, and gets a direction of south west. Bobo knows he's overshot the distance, and can change directions, heading south this time.

A very careful wizard with a compass and map might be able to triangulate the location of a landmark, although this can be tricky since the further the target is from the landmark, the more the compass needle wobbles.

a forked twig 
This spell aids in locating a known or familiar object. The wizard casts the spell, slowly turns, and senses when he is facing in the direction of the object to be located, provided the object is within range, i.e., 60 yards for 3rd-level wizards, 80 yards for 4th, 100 yards for 5th, etc.

The spell can locate such objects as apparel, jewelry, furniture, tools, weapons, or even a ladder or stairway. Note that attempting to find a specific item, such as jewelry or a crown, requires an accurate mental image; if the image is not close enough to the actual, the spell does not work. Desired but unique objects cannot be located by this spell unless they are known by the caster. The spell is blocked by lead.

Creatures cannot be found by this spell.

The material component is a forked twig.

The reversal, obscure object, hides an object from location by spell, crystal ball, or similar means for eight hours. Creatures cannot be affected by this spell. The material component is a chameleon skin.

Materials
Chalk and powered silver or lead 
The caster creates a circle on a stable surface with chalk and powered silver or lead. The size of the circle dictates how much chalk, silver, and lead is needed, as well as the casting time. Each foot of diameter consumes 30cp worth of lead or 60cp worth of silver and takes 2 minutes to create. Once the circle is created, the spell takes 1 minute to cast.

Once the circle is drawn and the spell is cast, nothing (physical or magical) may cross the boundary within the circle. If the chalk and powder circle is broken (a hair or straw laying across it, or being scuffed, for example), the spell is instantly broken. Items or creatures may be summoned within the circle, preventing them from running free, but also preventing the caster, or others, from interacting with the creature. While touch and spells may not cross the border, non-magical sounds may.

A creature inside the circle may attempt to break out. To do so, the creature rolls a d10 and adds their willpower and their number of hit dice. The spellcaster rolls the same thing. If the creature's roll equals or beats the caster's, the creature breaks free of the circle. If the circle is made with silver, instead of lead, the caster has advantage on the d10 roll. When this spell is broken in this way, there is a short but blinding flash of light outside the circle.

This circle may be reused over and over, as long as it is not disturbed. A permanent magic circle can be made at 100x the cost. The permanent version of this circle uses inlaid stones and molten metals.

The spell, but not the physical circle, may be dispelled by the original caster with a touch.

A key 
The caster touches a locked door with one hand, holds a key openly in their other hand, and softly speaks the words to the spell. The component disinterested into a fine sand and slips through the casters fingers. A magical key is conjured from the air that is an exact replica of the key used for the door being touched. The key vanishes when the caster loses light concentration, but until then acts in all respects as a normal key.

The key created is of the same volume as the key used in the component. While locks on homes and chests tend to be of similar size, desk locks tend to have smaller keys, and gates tend to have larger keys. Too much material in the spell component is usually possible to work around, perhaps producing a key with a large handle, but having too small of a spell component can lead to unusable results for large keyed locks.

It is possible to intentionally flub the spell and produce a key that does not work on the door. This flubbed key will be of a type that would work in the door, but with the wrong configuration.

a small bit of honeycomb 
When this spell is cast, the wizard imbues the chosen object with an enchanted mouth that suddenly appears and speaks its message when a specified event occurs. The message, which must be of 25 words or less, can be in any language known by the spellcaster, and can be delivered over a period of one turn.

The mouth cannot speak magical spells or use command words. It does, however, move to the words articulated - if it is placed upon a statue, the mouth of the statue would actually move and appear to speak. Of course, the magic mouth can be placed upon a tree, rock, door, or any other object, excluding intelligent members of the animal or vegetable kingdoms.

The spell functions when specific conditions are fulfilled, according to the command of the spellcaster.

Some examples are to speak "to the first creature that touches you," or "to the first creature that passes within 30 feet." Commands can be as general or as detailed as desired, although only visual and audible triggers can be used, such as the following: "Speak only when a venerable female human carrying a sack of groat clusters sits crosslegged within 1 foot." Such visual triggers can react to a character using the disguise ability. Command range is 5 yards per level of the wizard, so a 6th-level wizard can command the magic mouth to speak at a maximum encounter range of 30 yards ("Speak when a winged creature comes within 30 yards.").

The spell lasts until the speak command can be fulfilled; thus, the spell duration is variable. A magic mouth cannot distinguish invisible creatures, alignments, level, Hit Dice, or class, except by external garb. If desired, the effect can be keyed to a specific noise or spoken word.

The material component of this spell is a small bit of honeycomb.

Materials
 
By means of this spell, the caster is able to recall any one object that has been prepared in advance. The object must be physically marked/inscribed with words or runes. The first rune inscribed is a personal identifier of the caster, while the other words/runes are the sounds the caster uses to recall that object. Each object must have a unique set of sounds, and marking a new object with sounds of a previous object voids the enchantment on the previous object. If another caster marks the same object with the same spell, the first caster's enchantment is void.

The preparation for an object takes as much time as it would take to engrave (by hand) the object. Only after the runes/words have been inscribed can the caster finish the preparation by casting this spell into the object, which includes a drop of the caster's blood.

Once an object has been prepared, it can be recalled from anywhere on the plane by casting this spell and speaking the sounds/words to that particular object.

Restrictions: 1lb/level of the caster. 1 foot/level. Only the marked object can be summoned, not any attached items (a box will be recalled without its contents). Modifications to the object void the enchantment (writing on marked paper, engraving in a box). Items bound in silver or lead, or those enclosed in silver or lead lined rooms are temporarily unreachable.

The caster can dispel the enchantment by touching the object. If the object is identified, the name of the caster who enchantment can be determined.

This spell causes an arm made of compacted soil to rise from the ground. The spell must be cast on open turf, such as a grassy field or a dirt floor.

The earthen arm and hand (which are about the same size as a normal human limb) arise from the ground beneath one creature targeted by the caster. The hand attempts to grasp the creature's leg. The victim must attempt a saving throw; if successful, the hand sinks into the ground. Each round thereafter (until the spell ends or the target moves out of spell range), the hand has a 5% chance per level of the caster of reappearing beneath the targeted creature, at which time another saving throw is required.

If a saving throw is missed, the earthen limb firmly grasps and holds the creature in place. An individual held by the hand suffers a movement rate of 0, Armor Class penalty of -2, and attack penalty of -2. All Dexterity combat bonuses are negated. The hand causes no physical damage to the victim.

The arm may be attacked by any creature, including the arm's victim.

For every three levels that the caster has achieved, the acid, unless somehow neutralized, lasts for another round, inflicting another 2d4 points of damage each round. So at 3rd-5th level, the acid lasts two rounds; at 6th-8th level, the acid lasts for three rounds, etc.

The caster eats a feather and then whispers the words to the spell, summoning a small bird into existence. The bird will flutter about in front of the caster for 1 minute while the caster delivers a short message to it, as well as a verbal and mental picture of the person to whom the message ought to be delivered. The bird then flies away to deliver the message.

The bird will follow the rough instructions of the caster trying to find where to deliver its message. If the caster told the bird to deliver the message to the caster's wife who was at home, the bird will fly to the casters home (if within range of the spell) and visually look for the caster's wife. If the caster's wife cannot be found (inside where the bird can't go, not at home, disguised, etc.), the bird circle the area trying to find the target. The bird's ability to locate someone is only as good as a normal bird's - that is it can recognize a person by their face, or what they are wearing, but may get confused if there are many similar subjects.

The bird delivers the message as a series of squawks, which will get the words through, but not intonation or other verbal cues. Alternatively, a message may be attached to the bird physically. This message must be prepared ahead of time and the caster must have a way of attaching it to the bird.

A bird that fails to find its target by the end of the spell, vanishes without having delivered it.

As a magical creature, the bird can also be sent to magical beacons as per the Beacon spell. In this case, the bird will deliver to the beacon, even if it is not in the possession of the intended target of the spell.

Sage 
After anointing a nonliving object with burning sage, speaking the words, and going through the movements, the spell caster creates a rectangular scrap of paper with magic runes on it that affixes itself to a nonliving object of the caster's choice. If ever a living creature nears the ward, the runes emit a soft orange glow. The scrap of paper cannot be removed without being destroyed, and if the scrap is destroyed it explodes, dealing 2d4 points of damage to everything in a 10' radius, potentially destroying the item it was warding. Saving throws for half. Usually the seal is placed over a door and frame so that the door cannot be opened without ripping the paper. Those with walls or other structures between them may make a saving throw for no damage, suffering half damage on a fail.

Example: A minor sealing ward is placed over on a door frame, with creatures on either side. One creature opens the door, setting off the ward. Those on the ward side of the door save for half damage, taking full on a fail, while those on the opposite side save for no damage, taking half on a fail.

The ward itself is made of a tough and durable material, requiring a small effort to tear. It is unlikely for the ward to be destroyed through accident or exposure to the elements.

The ward may be dispelled by the caster at will, or removed by any other spell caster 3 levels higher than the original caster.

When a mirror image spell is invoked, the spellcaster causes from two to eight exact duplicates of himself to come into being around him.

These images do exactly what the wizard does. Since the spell causes a blurring and slight distortion when it is cast, it is impossible for opponents to be certain which are the illusions and which is the actual wizard. When an image is struck by a melee or missile attack, magical or otherwise, it disappears, but any other existing images remain intact until struck.

The images seem to shift from round to round, so that if the actual wizard is struck during one round, he cannot be picked out from among his images the next.

To determine the number of images that appear, roll 1d4 and add 1 for every three levels of experience the wizard has achieved, to a maximum of eight images. At the end of the spell duration, all surviving images wink out.

By using this spell, the wizard can create an invisible mark or rune on any surface. This mark remains invisible until conditions specified at the time of the casting are met. For example, the wizard could specify that the runes are only visible by the light of the moon or by the light of a moon of a certain phase (half, full, etc.), when viewed by an elf, at sunset or sunrise, when viewed by a wizard, when the caster is present, and so on. The spell cannot be used to transcribe magical runes, signs, glyphs, or symbols, but as many as seven letters or marks can be drawn. Unlike a magic mouth spell, a moon rune is permanent and will appear any time its conditions are met.

In addition to appearing when the proper conditions are met, a moon rune also becomes visible if a detect magic, detect invisibility, true seeing, or other such spell or effect is used on it. A read magic spell will reveal the maker's words, if any. Moon rune cannot be cast on a living creature. The mark cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed by the caster or by an erase spell.

The mount is broken in and well behaved, but knows no special commands or tricks and will serve only the person it was specifically summoned for. Any other person or creature attempting to ride it will meet with a very uncomfortable and spooked mount who will try to throw them. The mount will carry its rider into combat, but will not fight. A summoned horse will not overrun someone, for example.

The ability to summon a mount does not confer and ability to ride it. A cater who has never ridden a giant spider might have a very hard, or impossible, time trying to ride one they have summoned via this spell. This spell does not confer any supernatural communication with the mount.

The mount's link to the caster is weak, and the mount will vanish when it takes damage equal to the caster's level, or if the mount is separated by its rider by more than 100' per caster level.

The caster outlines the target with any sort of oil. The oil must make contact with the skin or clothes, and must form three full circles around the character, one in each spatial dimension. When the oil has been applied, the spell takes effect.

A creature or object under the effects of a Perception Filter is visible but unnoticed. As long as the subject does not speak to anyone or draw attention to themselves in any way, they are unnoticed. A guard on a door would notice an individual under the effects of this spell if they approached the door alone, but would not noticed one extra person in a large group that is not supposed to be there.

A companion to someone under the effect of this spell might lose track of them in a large crowd or forget that they're around somewhere. Moving through crowds is simple, as most people see but do not notice others in a crowd.

A merchant might not notice someone under the effects of this spell take something small and off to the side from their table of wares, but would notice if that same someone came around to the merchants side of the stall, or stood directly in front of the merchant, or tried to pilfer their masterpiece on display.

The spell works best when the target of the spell makes an effort to be out of the way and unimportant. If there is a question as to whether or not someone is noticed, the noticer should make a saving throw.

Things that will break the spell include, but are not limited to: any attack, spell casting, speaking to a person, making noises that draw attention, wearing out of place clothes, or using a mirror to reflect light into someone's eye.

With this abjuration spell, the wizard provides a protective barrier similar to that created by the spells protection from evil or protection from vermin, warding the recipient against creatures that possess venom or poison of some kind. Poisonous monsters or poison-using characters of 4 or less Hit Dice or levels are prevented from making physical contact with the spell recipient, while venomous creatures of 4+1 Hit Dice or poison-using characters of five levels or more suffer a -2 penalty on their attack rolls against the protected character. Only injected or contact poisons from natural or innate sources (such as compounds made from plants or the venom from a snake) in a position possibly injure the character are protected against; a thief carrying a vial of ingestive poison in his pouch is not counted as a venomous character while a character that is brandishing a poisoned short sword is counted as venomous. The spell recipient can still be poisoned by a spitting attack or a thrown dagger smeared with poison.

If the spell recipient attacks a creature he has been warded against or uses the resistance of the spell's aura to force his antagonist to give ground, the spell ends. Regrettably, reaching out to drink from a poisoned cup dispel the effect, so this spell offers no protection against ingested poisons.

A pyrotechnics spell draws on an existing fire source to produce one of two effects, at the option of the caster.

First, it can produce a flashing and fiery burst of glowing, colored aerial fireworks that lasts one round. This effect temporarily blinds those creatures in, under, or within 120 feet of the area and that have an unobstructed line of sight to the burst. Creatures viewing this are blinded for 1d4+1 rounds unless they successfully save vs. spell. The fireworks fill a volume 10 times greater than that of the original fire source.

This spell can also cause a thick, writhing stream of smoke to arise from the source and form a choking cloud that lasts for one round per experience level of the caster. This covers a roughly spherical volume from the ground or floor up (or conforming to the shape of a confined area) that totally obscures vision beyond 2 feet. The smoke fills a volume 100 times that of the fire source. All within the cloud must roll successful saving throws vs. spell or suffer -2 penalties to all combat rolls and Armor Class.

The spell uses one fire source within a 20-foot cube, which is immediately extinguished. An extremely large fire used as a source might be only partially extinguished. Magical fires are not extinguished, although a fire-based creature (such as a fire elemental) used as a source suffers 1 point of damage per caster level.

By means of a ray of enfeeblement, a wizard weakens an opponent, reducing its Strength and thereby the attacks that rely upon it.
Humans, demihumans, and humanoids of man-size or less are reduced to an effective Strength of 5, losing all Strength bonuses and suffering an attack roll penalty of -2 and a -1 penalty to damage.

Other creatures suffer a penalty of -2 on attack rolls. Furthermore, they have a -1 penalty for each die of damage they inflict. (But no damage roll can inflict less than 1 point per die of damage.)

Your DM will determine any other effects appropriate to the affected creature.

If the target creature makes its saving throw, the spell has no effect.

The spellcaster and up to seven others can climb up the rope and disappear into this place of safety where no creature can find them. The rope can be taken into the extradimensional space if fewer than eight persons have climbed it; otherwise, it simply stays hanging in the air (extremely strong creatures might be able to remove it, at the DM's option).

Spells cannot be cast across the interdimensional interface, nor can area effects cross it. Those in the extradimensional space can see out of it as if there were a 3-foot x 5-foot window centered on the rope.

The persons in the extradimensional space must climb down prior to the end of the spell, or they are dropped from the height at which they entered the extradimensional space.

The rope can be climbed by only one person at a time.

Note that the rope trick spell enables climbers to reach a normal place if they do not climb all the way to the extradimensional space.
Also note that creating or taking extradimensional spaces into an existing extradimensional space is hazardous.

The material components of this spell are powdered corn extract and a twisted loop of parchment.

Sense shifting allows the wizard to affect all spells of levels 1 through 3 that he casts within the duration of the spell. For each spell, he can modify one of three sensory features pertaining to the spell: color, sound, or patterned visual appearance of the spell effect. The changes produced by this spell do not affect the functions of the affected spell nor any saving throws that apply against their effects.

Sense shifting might be used to produce green fireballs, magic missiles that streak through the air with a scream, colored continual light globes, customized designs for a hypnotic pattern, or a spectral hand that makes scrabbling sounds as it attempts to grasp a target.

Sense shifting cannot create any form of invisibility. It cannot completely silence a spell effect(thus, a fireball

The caster points to the sky and speaking softly lowers their finger to the shadow of the creature they wish target. A blade springs forth from the air and plunges into the ground under the target's shadow. As long as the blade is in the ground, the target cannot move from the waist down. Once the spell is broken, the blade vanishes.

The blade will not penetrate stone until 8th level, but it is firmly lodged in whatever ground it does penetrate. Sand and snow are loose enough that another creature should be able to easily remove the blade, but hard packed earth or clay might require a strength check to be removed. Ground in-between these may require a strength check with a bonus subject to DM discretion.

Targets that do not see the spell coming, fleeing targets for example, make their saves at -2. For each size difference to the caster (larger or smaller), the target of the spell receives a cumulative +2 bonus to their save. If the shadow leaves the blade (lighting changes for example) the spell is broken.

Whether the subject of the spell is able to reach, grasp, and withdraw the blade is dependent upon the circumstances. The blade is ~3' long and is all but fully sunk into the ground, leaving the handle near to the ground. A tall creature struck from behind may have a hard time reaching something so close to the ground, while a short creature whose shadow stretches before them may easily grasp it.

The shatter spell is a sound-based attack that affects nonmagical objects of crystal, glass, ceramic, or porcelain, such as vials, bottles, flasks, jugs, windows, mirrors, etc.

All such objects within a 3-foot radius of the center of the spell effect are smashed into dozens of pieces by the spell. Objects weighing more than one pound per level of the caster are not affected, but all other objects of the appropriate composition must save vs. crushing blow or be shattered.

Alternatively, the spell can be focused against a single item of up to 10 pounds per caster level.
Crystalline creatures usually suffer 1d6 points of damage per caster level to a maximum of 6d6, with a saving throw vs. spell for half damage.

Application of this spell increases the Strength of the character by a number of points - or tenths of points after 18 Strength is attained (only if the character is a warrior).

Benefits of the strength spell last for the duration of the magic. The amount of added Strength depends upon the spell recipient's group and is subject to all restrictions on Strength due to race and class. Multiclass characters use the best die.

A Priest gains 1d6 points of Strength;
A Rogue gains 1d6 points of Strength;
A Warrior gains 1d8 points of Strength;
A Wizard gains 1d4 points of Strength;

If a warrior has an 18 Strength already, from 10% to 80% is added to his extraordinary Strength roll. The spell cannot confer a Strength of 19 or more, nor is it cumulative with other magic that adds to Strength. Beings without Strength scores (kobolds, lizard men, etc.) receive a +1 to attack and damage rolls.

The material component of this spell is a few hairs, or a pinch of dung, from a particularly strong animal - ape, bear, ox, etc.

Materials
a square of red cloth 
The swarm of small animals (roll on following table to determine type, or the DM can assign an appropriate creature) drawn by the summon swarm spell will viciously attack all creatures in the area chosen by the caster.
Creatures actively defending against the swarm to the exclusion of other activities suffer 1 point of damage for each round spent in the swarm.

Those taking other actions, including leaving the swarm, receive damage equal to 1d4 points + 1 point per three levels of the caster, every round. Note that spellcasting within the swarm is impossible.

A d100 roll of 01-40 will summon rats.
A d100 roll of 41-70 will summon bats.
A d100 roll of 71-80 will summon spiders.
A d100 roll of 81-90 will summon centipedes/beetles.
A d100 roll of 91-100 will summon flying insects.

The swarm cannot be fought effectively with weapons, but fire and area effects can force it to disperse by inflicting damage. The swarm disperses when it has taken a total of 2 hit points per caster level from these attacks.

A protection from evil spell keeps the swarm at bay, and certain area-effect spells, such as gust of wind and stinking cloud, disperse a swarm immediately, if appropriate to the swarm summoned (e.g., only flyers are affected by a gust of wind).

The caster must remain stationary and undisturbed to control the swarm; if his concentration lapses or is broken, the swarm disperses in two rounds. The swarm is stationary once conjured.

The material component is a square of red cloth.

Materials
a small feather and minute tarts 
The victim of this spell perceives everything as hilariously funny. The effect is not immediate, and the creature feels only a slight tingling on the round the spell is cast. On the round immediately following, the victim begins smiling, then giggling, chuckling, tittering, snickering, guffawing, and finally collapsing into gales of uncontrollable, hideous laughter.

Although this magical mirth lasts only a single round, the affected creature must spend the next round regaining its feet, and it loses 2 points from its Strength (or -2 to attack and damage rolls) for all remaining rounds of the spell.

The saving throw vs. spell is modified by the Intelligence of the creature. Creatures with Intelligences of 4 or less (semi-intelligent) are totally unaffected. Those with Intelligences of 5-7 (low) save with -6 penalties. Those with Intelligences of 8-12 (average to very) save with -4 penalties. Those with Intelligences of 13-14 (high) save with -2 penalties. Those with Intelligences of 15 or greater (exceptional) have unmodified saving throws.

The caster can affect one creature for every three levels attained - for example, one at 3rd level, two at 6th level, three at 9th level, etc. All affected beings must be within 30 feet of each other.

The material components are a small feather and minute tarts. The tarts are hurled at the subjects, while the feather is waved in one hand.

This spell creates a wall or barrier of ominous shadow in any area within the spell range. The wall of gloom does not obscure sight completely, but objects or creatures within the wall, or on its other side, are dim shadows that can barely be seen. Creatures attempting missile fire through the wall suffer a -2 penalty to their attack rolls. In addition, the supernatural cold and darkness of the wall of gloom may cause creatures moving through the wall to recoil in fear. Creatures of 4 Hit Dice or less who enter the wall must make saving throw vs. spell or retreat for 1d3 rounds; creatures of 4+1 to 7 Hit Dice must save or hesitate for 1 round before entering the wall; and undead and creatures of 7+1 Hit Dice or more ignore the wall's fear effects.

The wall can take any shape the caster desires, as long as it is at least 10 feet high and 10 feet thick. The material component is a bit of fleece from a black sheep and the eyelash of a revenant.

4 100gp gems, 2 carved faces each worth 100gp 
This spell creates two magically linked wards that allows a wizard on one end to observe what is happening on the other end. The first version of this spell enchants the wards permanently, while the second version permits their use.

Two masks must be created, one that looks outward, and one that looks inward. The outward facing mask has the shape of a person, animal, or monster as seen by another person - a typical face. The masks that look in are shaped as if to be donned, but must also match the outward mask. When the wizard "wears" the inward mask and casts the spell they see as if their face was the outward mask. They cannot move the outward mask, but may move the eyes, which might be noticed by someone observing the outward mask.

The second version of the spell has a duration of 1 round / level, during which time the wizard may switch between various masks if they have more than one.

Should a mask be damaged, it may cease to function. This is checked the first time the mask is used after being damaged. A mask 10% damaged has a 10% chance of failing. If this check is passed, it will continue to function until further damaged. Damage to the gems that function as eyes destroyed the magic.

Materials
 
By means of this spell, the wizard is able to either send a message or cause some desired sound effect. The whispering wind can travel as many miles above ground as the spellcaster has levels of experience, to a specific location within range that is familiar to the wizard. The whispering wind is as gentle and unnoticed as a zephyr until it reaches the location. It then delivers its whisper-quiet message or other sound. Note that the message is delivered regardless of whether anyone is present to hear it. The wind then dissipates. The wizard can prepare the spell to bear a message of up to 25 words, cause the spell to deliver other sounds for one round, or merely have the whispering wind seem to be a faint stirring of the air that has a susurrant sound. He can likewise cause the whispering wind to move as slowly as a mile per hour or as quickly as a mile per turn. When the spell reaches its objective, it swirls and remains until the message is delivered. As with the magic mouth spell, no spells may be cast via the whispering wind.

A wizard lock spell cast upon a door, chest, or portal magically locks it. The caster can freely pass his own lock without affecting it; otherwise, the wizard-locked door or object can be opened only by breaking in, by a successful dispel magic or knock spell, or by a wizard four or more levels higher than the one casting the spell. Note that the last two methods do not remove the wizard lock; they only negate it for a brief duration - about one turn. Creatures from other planes cannot burst a wizard lock as they can a held portal (see the hold portal spell). This version of the spell may be dismissed with a gesture by the caster.

Using a ritual nearly identical to the Hold Portal spell, Wizard Lock too can be made permanent. In addition to the costs of the Hold Portal ritual, an additional 1oz / 20 square feet is needed for a final symbol that requires no dexterity check, but an additional intelligence check.

1sp of powdered silver 
[This spell uses the Thief Rebuild version of locks.]

The caster places their hand on the object holding the lock and sprinkles the silver over their hand while speaking the words to the spell quietly. When the dust settles on the object, it vanishes. At the end of the spell, the difficulty of the lock is then increased by 5 + 1/3 the caster level. Furthermore, spells that may unlock doors (e.g. alteration version of Hold Portal) must pass a contested saving throw or fizzle.

Once the object has been opened, the lock is returned to it's normal difficulty, but the area where silver did not touch the object, due to the caster's hand being there, takes on a gentle red glow for a number of weeks equal to the caster's level. The glow only becomes visible ten minutes after the object was closed again. This red glow can be dismissed with a gesture by the caster.
