1 Spell Rules and Listed Spells on Thu Dec 09, 2010 1:35 am

This is a comprehensive list of already existing spells that are available to characters. Spells are categorized by three things: School, Element, and Tier. Ability Points (AP) are spent to buy spells.

The first descriptor for spells is the School. A school determines how the magic manifests. While many schools have been already determined, there are an infinite number of schools.

In the Universe of Caislin Hallows, there are six elements from which all magic draws power: Air, Darkness, Earth, Fire, Light, and Water. Schools of magic are often available only in a few elements.

The power of a spell is determined by the Tier it is. There are three Tiers of magic: Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. The greater the Tier's number, the more powerful the spell is (e.g. Tier 3 is the most powerful). Each school of magic has three tiers of spells.

As a change from the old format, when a character is developing a mage, he/she is no longer required to pick a specific number of elements or schools based upon their level from which to choose their spells. As long as a player has AP to spend, they can purchase any spell from the list. The only restriction is that a beginner (student) character must get administrator permission to add a Tier 3 spell to their list.

AP cost:
Tier 1 = 1 AP
Tier 2 = 2 AP
Tier 3 = 3 AP

Similar to the old format though is that you must specify the element of the spell you are including in your sheet. A "Fire Dart" is different than an "Ice Dart". If you want both "Fire Dart" and "Ice Dart", you must spend 1 AP for each, for a total of 2 AP.

The easiest way to list a spell is by giving its name followed by the School, Tier, and Element. (i.e. Dart (Piercing Attack, Tier 1, Fire). You do not need to list it this way during roleplay, only on your sheet so we know exactly the version you wanted.

Casting a Spell:
Generally, a mage does need a spell book or wand or any casting paraphernalia. Spells are cast instantly (begun and resolved in the same post) from memory if the mage is of the proper level. If the spell is beyond the mage’s level (but still on his character sheet) he may cast it as a prepared spell.

Prepared Spell:
Prepared Spells take one complete round of uninterrupted preparations (from the start of one post to the start of your next post). A mage disturbed while preparing the spell (i.e. destroying the mystic diagram or bumping a gesticulating hand) losses the Prepared Spell and must start over. A mage may carry only one Prepared Spell at a time—preparing another spell will cancel the already Prepared Spell. A Prepared Spell does not carry from thread to thread.

In short:
Beginners can instant cast T1 typed spells in their first post, whereas T2 spells must be prepped. T3 spell exceptions can be made, but must be prepped.
Intermediate: T1, T2 insta-cast. T3 prepped.
Expert: Cast at will (go apeshit).

This is a list of spells that have already been made by the administration or the administration has had a hand in balancing. These, by no means, are the only spells you can have. Most of these are basic spells that the administration figured most would want in one form or another. If you would like to have a different spell, contact an administrator and we will be more than happy to work with you.

Spells:

Fascinate (currently undefined Attunement)

Tier one -- Listless Dreamer – The level can effect up to three people and makes them stand mostly still as if lost in thought. They will of course react to harm if it comes there way but for all objective purposes it takes an outside force, or an extremely strong mind to break them of this spells affect before the castor wishes to lower its powers... However physical contact can break them free.

Tier Two – The Idle Dancer-- This level can affect up to 6 people. It forces them to dance slowly to music that either comes form an outside force, or music that only they them selves can hear. Like a Sirens call it is harder to break someone of this level of the spell than it is to snap them out of the Listless Dreamer, however confinement of nearly any kind shatters the spell as they find themselves unable to dance.

Tier Three –Rock-a-Billy-- the most powerful level of the Fascination spell this form can affect up to 12 people and makes them dance in very heated fast manners, break-dancing, booty-shaking, the 'Crunk'.. Whatever the form of dancing is it is vibrant and all encompassing. The rhythm of the music (provided or invented by themselves) fills their mind and they become proverbial slaves to its beat. An exceptionally strong mind out outside interference is needed to break them of this spell before the castor wishes, however again confinement, restriction of motion, or of course immediate harm and injury also frees their mind of its effect.

**** NOTE this spell does not confer actual dancing ability to its victims. So sadly suffered of White Male Syndrome are not going to pop it likes it hot, though they might Cabbage patch it pretty well. Thsi spell Sphere currently requiers admin permission to take****

Elemental Attunements: Light, Darkness
*Tier 1: Minor Banishment—Banishes small/weak divine or infernal entities from the material plane. 90% Success Rate.
*Tier 2: Medium Banishment—Banishes divine or infernal entities of moderate power from the material plane. 75% Success Rate.
