Special Abilities
  • One with the body: Fatigues at half normal rate, can hold breath for 3 minutes, has good balance (+5%) and coordination. Can run at half speed (see Speed attribute notes - just over a 7 minute mile at half speed) for 23 miles (37 km) without fatigue. At maximum speed, can do so for 7.6 miles (12.2 km) before fatigue!
  • One with the mind: Spells, psionic attacks, drugs and diseases that cause confusion, dizziness or dull the senses are 1/2 as effective (reduce penalties and duration by half). + 1 vs Mind Control @ 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 14. +1 to save vs Horror Factor at every odd level through 15, starting at level 1.
  • One with magic: The Magus has a comprehensive understanding of the principles of magic and is especially well versed in ritual magic and power spells. May also draw additional P.P.E. from ley lines, nexus points, people and blood sacrifices as Ley Line Walker (20 P.P.E. per melee round at a Ley Line, 40 at a Nexus Point). Impervious to possession!
  • Pilot Automaton: Only High Magi may pilot Colossus. Seldom pilots other Automatons.
  • Link with Lords of Magic: The High Magus has a mysterious connection to the Lords of Magic. It is through this link that they can animate and empower the Automatons. They can draw upon the P.P.E. of the three Lords of Magic to create permanent magic weapons via Enchant Weapons spell and at half the normal P.P.E. cost.
    The link also alerts the Lords of Magic when a High Magus is killed. They know instantly, and, if within 200 miles, they have a general idea of where and whether the Magus suffered (but not how or by whom).
  • Automaton Creation and Bonding Rituals: EXCLUSIVE to the High Magus. The secrets of creating Automatons and the bonding rituals which give Controllers their unique union with these constructs are known only to the High Magi.
  • Recovers P.P.E. at a rate of 10 P.P.E. per hour of rest or sleep; 15 P.P.E. per hour through meditation.

Psionics
Major Psionic Sensitive

Astral Projection
Range: Self.
Duration : 5 minutes per level of experience.
I.S.P. : 8
Through intense concentration/meditation (4D4 minutes of preparation)
the psychic can free his mind, or inner self, from his physical
body. This psychic inner self is the Astral Body, a whitish, transparent,
ghostly image of the character's physical form. A long silver thread or
cord connects the Astral Body with its physical self. If the cord is severed
the character is likely to die of sudden shock as body and soul are
tom asunder. There is only a 30% chance the Astral Self can locate its
physical body without the silver umbilical cord (roll best 2 out of 3).
The physical body lapses into a coma-like trance when the Astral
Self has left it. In this state the body is completely helpless. It cannot
walk, move or think; completely catatonic.
The hazards are threefold. First, if the physical body is killed, the
Astral Body is forever lost and will die, fade away, within six hours.
Second, if the Astral Body gets lost or captured while in the Astral
Plane, the body will begin to waste away and die. (Note: One minute of
our time is equal to one week in the Astral Plane.) Third, the Astral
Body is vulnerable to psychic attacks and attacks from ghosts, entities
and creatures of the Astral Plane.
There are two levels of Astral Projection, coexistence (physical
body and spirit form) in the material world and/or the Astral Plane (another
dimension). Astral Projection from the physical body into the
material world creates a ghostly specter of the Astral Self which can be
seen only by other psychics, young children under 13 years old, animals
and most supernatural creatures. While in Astral Form the character
automatically gains the ability to float, fly (mach one/670 mph/ I On
km maximum), see the invisible, pass through solid objects (including
M.D.C. walls), impervious to physical harm (including cold, heat and
energy), are invisible to sensor systems and cameras, and see and hear
as usual. The Astral Body can not communicate with the physical
world except through Telepathy or Empathy, nor speak to, smell or
touch anything on the Material Plane. The Astral Self is little more than
a mute, ghostly observer. Of course, this is a great way to locate invisible
supernatural entities, as well as spy on other humans on the Material
Plane (although limited by short sprints. See duration). A character
traveling the Material Plane via Astral Projection may use any psionic
powers that do NOT require physical contact. They can generally only
affect the physical world (or themselves be affected from physical beings)
by Sensitive psionic powers such as Telepathy, Clairvoyance,
Empathy, etc . ; Astral travelers communicate using Telepathy.
Traveling in Astral Form has its own very special dangers. While
the character can see the invisible and other Astral Travelers, they can
also see him. This makes him susceptible to their psychic and Astral
Form attacks, for two Astral Travelers can lock into hand to hand combat
as well. The most vulnerable target is the silver cord which is the
Astral Traveler's lifeline to the physical world. Fortunately, the cord
has an Astral S.D.C. which is two times that of the person ' s physical
Hit Points and S.D.C. combined. The thread-like silver cord is a difficult
target to hit; attackers are -6 to strike. The Astral Body also has an
S.D.C. of two times the Hit Points and S.D.C. of the physical body
combined . This means if the character has 1 8 Hit Points and 28 S.D.C.
both the Astral Body and its silver cord have 92 Astral S.D.C. each (18+28 = 46x2 = 92 each).
Remember, magic and psychic influence have
full effect on the Astral Body. This includes exorcism, which will force
the Astral Traveler to leave the immediate area (400 footl l 22 m radius)
and not return for 24 hours. The Astral Traveler has the same number
of attacks per melee, bonuses, hand to hand, skills, knowledge and psychic
powers that he or she has in the Material Plane.

Entering the Astral Plane is like entering the Twilight Zone. After
a minute of concentration the Astral Gateway appears as a bright patch
of shimmering, white light. Once the Astral Traveler passes through it,
he will find himself in an endless expanse of white light, and rolling,
white clouds . There is no up or down, no bottom or top; no north or
south, no land or air or sea, just endless, slowly swirling white. Time,
too, is a different or altered state, for what would seem to be a week in
the Astral Plane is barely one minute in the physical world. That means
a 2nd level Mind Melter could spend the equivalent of ten weeks in the
Astral Plane and, when he returned to his physical body, he would find
that only ten minutes of real time had elapsed. Although time may flow
differently between the Astral Plane and the real world, the Astral
Traveler is still subject to the laws of the real world when he returns. If
he was low on I.S.P. when he entered the Astral Plane, even if he was
there for several weeks of Astral Time, he would still be low on I.S.P.
when he returns to the real world. Time and space twisted and distorted,
the Astral Traveler can travel from one end of our planet to the
other, in the blink of an eye, by hopping through the Astral Plane.
However, if he does not know where he is going, he could end up hopelessly
lost in the Astral Plane somewhere. Furthermore, the Astral
Plane has its dangers as well, from Astral Beings and monsters to becoming
endlessly lost. Even if all goes well, the distortion of place and
time makes it extremely difficult to find the material world and one ' s
dormant, physical body. Even trying to follow the silver cord can lead
to nowhere.
To return from the Astral Plane to the physical body, roll on the
following table: Each roll will determine the Astral Traveler ' s state of
mind and sense of direction. The percentile dice can be rolled up to
three times per melee (15 seconds). The player must roll "definitely
certain" to successfully return. The player may keep trying until he succeeds
or time elapses.

Location of the Physical Body
Ro l l Percentile Dice to Return from the Astral Plane:
01%- 30 % : Hopelessly Lost (roll again).
31% - 50% : Uncertain, Confused (roll again).
51% - 76% : Fairly certain of location; on the right track (roll again).
77% - 00% : Definitely certain of location. (Whew! Made it Back).

Astral travel with a partner is a much safer way to travel, because if
one can find his body, he can lead the other one out with him.
Note: Traveling on the Material Plane in Astral Form is infinitely
easier than the Astral Plane. To find the physical body the character
need only return to where he left it. If it has been moved or hidden the
Astral Self can sense its location with a 60% efficiency (roll once per
melee).
The other danger lies in being attacked by other beings in the Astral
Plane. Entities and elemental creatures of magic live in the Astral Plane
or travel through it. These beings are usually hostile, evil forces. While
the Astral Body can not touch or communicate with the material world,
the Astral Body is quite solid to other inhabitants of the Astral Plane.
The Astral Body is also vulnerable to magic and psychic powers, as
well as physical assault by Astral Entities.
The energy which composes the Astral Plane is responsive to
thoughts and desires. The strongest Astral Beings can mentally or magically
control what a small area might look like. This means that the
Astral Plane is made up of hundreds or perhaps thousands or even millions
of tiny Astral "Kingdoms" adrift within the vast whiteness. Exactly
what these kingdoms look like is up to the entity that creates it.
Some may look like a modem city, others like castles or forests, while
still others, a frightening landscape. Perhaps this is where legends of
visitations to Heaven and Hell originate? It is always wise to avoid an
Astral Kingdom, because only the most powerful Entities and Astral
Beings can create and maintain them.

Mind Block
Range: Self.
Du ration : 10 minutes per level of experience.
I.S.P. : 4 (per each duration period).
This is the ability to completely close or block oneself from all psychic/
mental emanations. When intentionally closed to supernatural or
psychic forces the character can not sense anything, can not use psychic
abilities, nor be influenced by others. A Mind Block will prevent penetration
of Telepathy, Empathy, Hypnotic Suggestion, Day Dream and
Empathic Transmission. It can be an invaluable protective mask when
dealing with malevolent psychic forces. Adds a bonus of +1 to save vs
all psychic and mental attacks. Note: Mind Block only blocks psionic
attacks that affect the psychic's mind or emotional state (Le. Telepathy,
Empathy, Hypnotic Suggestion, etc.). It offers not protection from
magic.

Read Dimensional Portal
Range: Touch or one foot (0.3 m) per level of experience.
Duration: One melee round per level of experience.
I.S.P.: 6
Saving Throw: Not applicable.
Limitations : Applicable only to active (open) dimensional portals and
devices that can create a dimensional portal.
This power allows the psychic to get impressions from the portal or
dimension spanning device, which instills the character with the following
information:
• Destination is relatively dangerous/hostile or safe to the psychic.
This includes whether or not the environment can support human life.
• Whether there is a strong (or numerous) presence of the supernatural
(i.e. Alien Intelligence, gods, demons, etc.) and whether that
presence is evil.
• A psychic flash - a brief vision of who was the last person or persons
to use the portal, if any (may be none if it is a random Rift that
hasn't been used by any living force).
• Intuitively sense whether the portal or machine leads to any of the
following dimensions: The Astral Plane, Xiticix home world, the
Dreamstream, or to another location on Rifts Earth.
• If a mechanical gateway or device capable of dimensional travel/
opening a dimensional portal, whether it is a creation of magic or
science, the psychic will get a basic idea of how to operate it in order
to open or close a dimensional portal (similar to Object Read).

Remote Viewing
Range: Self.
Duration : 2D6+6 second flash of insight or vision of current events.
I.S.P.: 10
Saving Throw: Special. Other psychics can feel or sense when somebody
is trying to observe them and can try to resist it by concentrating
(uses up one I.S.P.); standard save vs psionic attack (in this case,
psionic intrusion). Failure means the psychic is seen via Remote
Viewing. Success means the psychic trying to view is blocked, and he
knows that the target has deliberately done so. Otherwise, the target of
this power gets no impression from being viewed remotely and has no
idea why he is being watched or by whom.
To use this power, the psychic needs a photo or video image to focus
on, even if he knows the person or place intimately. When focused
on a particular person, the psychic can see in his mind what the person
is doing at that moment for 2D6+6 seconds. The image appears as if the
character were looking down through a skylight. He sees only a
glimpse of things and may not remember all details. Likewise, he may
not see other people outside his line of vision, because the focus is a
particular person, not the entire room. If the target is moving, walking,
or driving, the remote viewer will know this and follow along for a few
seconds, although he may not have a clear idea of his surroundings, but
enough of an impression to recognize it if he sees it personally.
The character may also Remote View a specific place such as a
small to medium room, a corner in a playground or field, a specific entrance
to a building, a particular section of an alley, etc., but not an entire
house, office building, stadium, street, etc. As before, he must have
a photograph, video or frame of film to focus upon. For 2D6+6 seconds,
the psychic will see whatever occurs in that small area of that
particular place.
In the alternative, the psychic can use Remote Viewing to catch
glimpses/images that tell something about the subject of the viewing. In
this instance, he must have 2-4 specific questions, such as, "is so and so
alive . . . " Then the image of the character smiling as he walks through
the area appears, or flashes of a brutal attack, blood, and a falling body
(indicating death), and so on, appear for an instant in answer to his
query. In either case, the psychic cannot look at the same person or
place via Remote Viewing again for another 24 hours.

Sense Evil
Range: 140 feet (42.7m) area.
Duration : 2 minutes (8 melees) per level of experience.
I.S.P.: 2
Saving Throw: None.
This psi-power is a much more refined ability to feel the presence of
evil. All supernatural creatures radiate their alignment, good or evil.
A psychic sensitive will automatically feel supernatural evil without
spending a single I.S.P. point. However, to get a clearer picture of the
evil force(s) the character must open himself and use the Sense Evil
ability.

Sense Evil will indicate the general number of supernatural evil:
one, a few (2-6), several (7- 1 4), or many ( 1 5 or more). It can also register
the intensity of the evil and pinpoint the general location of the
source(s) to a particular room(s), possessed obj ect, character, and distance;
i.e. very near (within 15 feet/l4. 5 m), near (within 5 feet/ l5.2m), or far
(60 to 140 feet/8.2 to 42.7m). The character can track the
source of supernatural evil, like a bloodhound, by sensing how close it
is to him.
Evil emanations from human beings are much less distinct and can
not be felt unless the source/person has an immediate evil intention and
has psychic powers or is psychotic . The former can mask his evil intentions
with a Mind Block.

Sixth Sense
Range: 90 feet (27.4 m).
Duration: Until the danger passes or happens. Bonuses apply only to the first
melee round of the attack from the source of the sensed danger.
I.S.P.: 2
Saving Throw: None.
The Sixth Sense is a power that gives the psychic a precognitive
flash of imminent danger to himself or somebody near him (within 90
feet/27.4m). The character will not know what the danger is or where it
will come from, nor who it will be directed at when in a group. All he
knows is that something life threatening will happen within the next 60
seconds (4 melees) ! The Sixth Sense is triggered automatically, without
the consent of the psychic, whenever his life is in great peril or the life
of somebody he greatly cares about (friend, partner, loved one, etc.).
The Sixth Sense is only triggered by an unexpected, life threatening
event (a trap or ambush is within 90 feet/27.4m or a flash flood is rushing
his way) which is already set into motion and will happen any second.
The power can not be called upon at will to sense for traps or
ambush. Instead, it works like an automatic reflex. If the character has
used all his I.S.P. the Sixth Sense is temporarily rendered inoperative.
Bonuses: The sudden flash of insight provides the following bonuses.
All bonuses apply only to the first, initial melee ( 15 seconds)
when the attack/danger occurs. Bonuses are lost in subsequent melee
rounds after the danger is revealed. +6 on initiative roll, +2 to parry, +3
to dodge and the character can not be surprised by a sneak attack from
behind.

Telepathy
Range: Read surface thoughts up to 60 feet (18.3m) away or two-way
telepathic communication up to 140 feet (42 .7m) +40 feet (12.2m) per
level of experience.
Duration : 2 minutes per level of experience.
I.S.P.: 4
Saving Throw: Conditional. When a character suspects he is being
telepathically probed he can resist, getting the standard saving throw.
Mind Blocks will completely prevent telepathic probes or communications
as long as the block is up.
The power of Telepathy allows the psychic to eavesdrop on what
another person is thinking at a particular moment. This is done by focusing
on that one individual and picking up on his or her surface
thoughts. Surface thoughts are those thoughts and musings uppermost
in a target's mind. A deep probe into memory is not possible. Although
the psychic can read the thoughts of several people, he can only do so
by focusing on one person at a time. Simultaneous, multiple mind reading
is impossible for the character.
Limited telepathic communication is also possible. The telepath can
send a directed thought message to one person at a time. The message
must be as brief and clear as possible. Like, "John, I need you immediately.
Hurry! " or "Stop! Don' t do that." "Come here," "Look out!" or
"Press the green button." However, two-way telepathic communication
is not possible except between two characters both with telepathic abilities.

Total Recall
Range: Self.
Duration: Permanent.
I.S.P.: 2
The character remembers every word he reads. Specific blocks of
written and visual information can be recalled in perfect detail at will.
Each block of information costs 3 I.S.P. to recall in absolute detail . If
all I.S.P. have been expended the memory is a little fuzzy, so that exact
quotes and details may be impossible to recall. Roll percentile to see
how much is retained :
01%-50%: Remembered in full detail, word for word.
51%-80%: Details are forgotten, but the full essence of the ideas are
clear.
81%-00%: Can only recall the most basic concepts; no details nor
strong comprehension.
Note: Does apply to the spoken word, although psychics with this
ability usually have very good memories.

Background Story

Salomón originally hails from South America, where he was born and spent his childhood. His father, an Amaki TechnoWizard and Shifter, had a thriving business in New Babylon, and had established a name for himself. His mother, a celebrated and famous Japanese Bishamon, had met his father on distant travels where they fell in love and eventually married. The happy couple adopted two children - one from each culture, as was the custom - and decided to name their son "Salomón" after his paternal grandfather, and his sister "Himari" after his maternal grandmother. Both children, however, were taught freely from both cultures, including the languages from each as well as their mother's specialized martial art of Aikido.

As a young boy, Salomón's father was often gone on important trips, and so Salomón was raised in large part by his mother. He was far more serious, studious, and reserved than most Amaki. Ironically, his human sister had a more rebellious streak and lived up to the "decadent party animal" reputation of much of his race. However, she excelled at swordplay and was accepted to the House of the Sword in New Babylon. Salomón took after his mother, and at least some of his characteristics were attributed to his study of Aikido and the meditative techniques his mother taught him. He expressed an interest in magic, which his father was delighted by, and young Salomón was introduced to The House of Magic. The young Amaki excelled at his preliminary studies - especially in magical theory and at grasping and applying the concepts of higher magic. The House of Magic conferred with his parents, saying he had great potential as a practitioner of magic, and was talented in many areas.

His mother, who had been a staunch foe of evil in Japan, was endowed at one point with a special staff by the famous Millenium Tree there. She told Salomón that someday, it would be his, if he followed in her footsteps. One day, he approached his parents and said he was ready to learn more about the world and magic, and he wanted to visit North America and the Magic Zone he had heard about. With some hesitation, they agreed to send him on one condition: his father placed a sealed letter in his hand. He informed Salomón that he had helped some important people once in the Magic Zone area, and that Salomón was to give the letter ONLY to the "Lords of Magic" - enigmatic, powerful beings in charge of a city called "Dweomer" in the Magic Zone where he was headed, and that said letter would ensure his future there. The trick, he said, was finding the place - it was notoriously difficult to locate.

Armed with their blessing, his wits, some weapons, and the letter, Salomón spent months searching the Magic Zone with his hired traveling companions. This "Dweomer" was nowhere to be found and both his funds and morale were running low. He was about to give up when they finally stumbled across the fabled city right in the middle of pristine wilderness. After a somewhat hostile reception and some trepidation, he was able to confer with the Lords of Magic to give them the letter. The mysterious Lords of Magic informed Salomón that his parents had been of some assistance in years past, and they would gladly help their kin. The Three accepted Salomón as a student of the elite High Magus group, and his formal magical training began.

After his initial formal training, the Lords of Magic told Salomón that his magical foundation was secure and he could leave on a Sojourn, to "find his place" in the world. There is a place called MercTown, they said, where adventure awaited, and that was suggested as a good starting point. Salomón sought permission (and was granted) to journey to this Merctown and see what he could make of any opportunity for advancing his own abilities and finding his place in the world. He stepped into the portal created for him, felt the familiar surge of mystic energy, and set out to begin a new chapter of his life.

Re: Salomón (Amaki Stone-Man High Magus)

Further Character Development

Concept Development
  1. What emotion best describes your character?
    Optimistic
  2. What emotion does your character evoke in others?
    Admiration, I hope
  3. What does your character need most?
    Purpose and feeling of accomplishment
  4. What is your character’s goal in life?
    To create and build things of lasting value, contribute, make the world a better place, help others achieve the same, free and heal the oppressed
  5. How does your character believe this goal can be accomplished?
    By learning and obtaining the tools to do the aforementioned goals, teaching, traveling, exchanging ideas, materials, services and culture
Background
  1. Where did your character come from?
    South America (where we would now call Argentina), the Amaki country/state of New Babylon, city of Babylon Major
  2. When did you grow up?
    Modern Rifts day and age
  3. What values does your character hold?
    Tolerance, fairness, justice, balance, compassion, kindness, self-sacrifice and altruism, the building of both self and others, hard work, persistence, and patience. Note that while Salomón holds these values dear, he is INtolerant of INtolerance, and though he prefers resolution of any conflicts through discussion and persuasion, he will not hesitate to defend himself or others from aggression. Generally, however, his disposition is one of peace, and he is slow to anger, but like all High Magi, he is quite sensitive to the suffering of others, and vulnerable to the sorrow that comes from seeing those others suffer needlessly.
  4. How does your character dress?
    Salomón is relatively subdued for an Amaki, both out of personal preference, and of a lack of desire to draw undue attention to himself. He generally wears blues, greens, blacks and - when feeling ambitious - reds. He does not often wear very bright colors - even the aforementioned colors tend to be darker versions. That said, on occasion he has been known to decorate or paint himself, as is the Amaki tradition - most often at formal events, parties, or on holidays.
  5. What are your character’s means?
    As a newly-minted Sojourner graduate of Dweomer's prestigious and elite Brotherhood of Creation, Salomón is technically unemployed (fortunately, he does have some modest savings, so things are not yet "dire"). However, he is confident that, with his extensive skill set and magical prowess, he can find employment and make himself of use.
Details
  1. What are your character’s personal tastes?
    Salomón's upbringing (Amaki father and Japanese human mother) provided him with diverse cultural perspectives, and as a result, he is open to learning about other cultures. He is especially interested in trying new foods, and considering learning how to cook at some point. Regarding food, Salomón prefers savory and flavorful food - often spicy. He is an omnivore. He enjoys and is drawn to culture, the arts, and learning - of any kind.
  2. What are your character’s opinions?
    The rule of law is important, but not as important as said law being just and fair to and for all. Resources are means to an end, that end being security and a measure of freedom - and Salomón believes that both are simultaneously attainable, with the right measure of balance. Speaking of balance, he tries to generally avoid extremes. All sentients should be viewed with respect and consideration without regard to physical appearance or ability, until they impede others without justification (justification including, but not limited to, self-defense or the defense of others). Use of force should generally be restrained, and causing the lasting suffering of others is rarely, if ever, justified. We should protect innocents who cannot protect themselves without thought of reward. While not a pacifist, strictly speaking, Salomón tries to use physical violence as a last resort. That being said, he is a formidable combatant and will not hesitate to use violence if the situation calls for it - usually to the point of disabling/stopping the threat, and rarely to the point of utter destruction (remember - he is a healer and creator, not a fighter, by nature). While not a "tree-hugger", Salomón does care about responsible stewardship of the environment and prefers to avoid unnecessary negative impacts on it.
  3. What is your character’s comfort zone?
    Magic and technology are comfortable and familiar for Salomón. Being away from both of these at the same time would put him ill at ease. Other things outside his comfort zone would include such things as slavery (in all cases), cruelty to others (especially innocents), and wanton destruction or wastefulness.
  4. Who has had the biggest impact on your character’s life?
    This is actually a tie between Salomón's mother, who taught him many of his lasting values, and Leizak D'zir, High Lord Creator of Dweomer, who kindled and developed his passions for creation, learning and building, and taught him most of his magical and many of his mundane skills personally.
  5. What are some of your character’s unexpected quirks?
    For some inexplicable reason, Salomón likes the sound and feeling of his joints cracking and popping, and can sometimes be caught absent-mindedly popping his knuckles or other joints (neck and ankles being the most common).
Play Details
  1. What kind of story does your character belong in?
    Salomón feels like he needs to be a part of something constructive, wherein he can contribute meaningfully - whether that role is healing, building, creating or even defending, is not as important as adding value, helping others, and being part of something bigger than himself.
  2. What role does your character fill?
    Builder, creator, healer, defender, and freer of others. Note: Building, to Salomón's view, does not necessarily mean physical construction (though that is a common part of it). It could mean building others up, building character, building bodies, building skills, etc. The overall theme is one of adding value for himself and others, but this can take many forms.
  3. What should the other players know about your character?
    Salomón is a champion of good, a defender of innocents and the weak, freer of the enslaved, and ally to the oppressed. He will not hesitate to call out injustice wherever he sees it, and speaks truth to power. While not violent by nature, he will not hesitate to defend himself and others if attacked (though rarely will he initiate violence, nor will he foolishly take on impossible odds). He is patient and often takes the "long view". He also has long term, strategic plans, and likes to think things through carefully whenever possible. As a side note, Salomón is very much modeled after me personally, in terms of values, ethics, desires, etc.
  4. What is your play style?
    I try to balance the desire for my character(s) gaining power with the knowledge of how this can impact game and group dynamics. I'm sensitive to stepping on other player toes and try to avoid redundancy where not needed. I'm also very big on communication (as is important for a "strategic", long-game focused character) and love teamwork and inter-character dialogue and interaction. Feel free to PM me with any questions, concerns, or ideas you have. I'm on Hangouts frequently.
  5. How do you want your character to die?
    Umm, I don't. Really - I don't. But, if he must, I would like Salomón to die doing what he believes in, perhaps defending the innocent or weak, or making a stand for what he believes is right. Hopefully his death will have meaning and be heroic and memorable in a lasting, impactful manner.

I'd love this, but the GM would never give it to me #1: The Gift of Knowledge from Yggdrasil (page 161, Pantheons of the Megaverse)
I'd love this, but the GM would never give it to me #2: Normal access to spell learning from spell levels 1-6 (currently, the High Magus can only learn spells from levels 7+)
I'd love this, but the GM would never give it to me #3: Colossus Automaton. Salomón knows how to make and pilot one of these, per canon, but it would be pretty unbalancing to "keep one around", not to mention it would probably piss off the Lords of Magic to reveal their secret weapon to the rest of the world (read: CS)

I'd be willing to sacrifice this to get it: Does it matter? "The GM would never give it to me", remember? ;) But if it were possible, I"d give up some things of significance. For example, ALL of my psionic powers (at least for #1 or #2), and as a Major psionic, that's a considerable sacrifice.

This would be great, the GM might give me this as a major reward #1: Millenium Tree Staff of the Wind (hey, it's even worked into my backstory - Book of Magic, page 290)
This would be great, the GM might give me this as a major reward #2: A Flying Carpet. I mean, how cool is that?!? (Federation of Magic, page 148)
This would be great, the GM might give me this as a major reward #3: A different Automaton, less powerful than the Colossus or Kilairgh. Recall that High Magi know how to make, and can pilot, any Automaton. (Federation of Magic, various)

I'd be willing to sacrifice this to get it: Blood, sweat and tears ;) Seriously, though, it really depends on the reward.

This would be pretty good, I can see the GM giving this to me as a minor reward #1: A TW Snare Gun from Stormspire (Book of Magic, page 326)
This would be pretty good, I can see the GM giving this to me as a minor reward #2: A handful of magic grenades or "Goblin bombs" from Book of Magic. I might even take W.P. targeting for it! (Book of Magic, pages 328-329)
This would be pretty good, I can see the GM giving this to me as a minor reward #1: A Shadow Cloak (Book of Magic, page 333)


I would love to visit this place in an adventure:
Another continent I haven't been to yet, or a different dimension!

The thing I'd most like to change about my character is:
I think High Magi should be able to learn and cast lower level spells, it's just not their focus. Maybe they would have the ability to "sacrifice" 2 level 7+ spell "slots" available to learn new spells at a new level for each 1 spell under level 7, or something like that.

An epic thing I'd love my character to do is:
Build a community, complete with fortifications, power generation capabilities, hospital/healing, etc.



Note: The dice rolls below were for Aikido additions, but I cannot seem to eliminate them from this post, so... yeah.
Aikido roll for S.D.C. = 2d6 = 6
Aikido roll for M.E. = 1d4 = 4

Salomón's List of Spells Known (Spell Levels 1-10)

Level 1 (Uses 1 action to cast)
  • Globe of Daylight
    Range: Near self or up to 30 feet (9.1m) away.
    Duration : 12 melees (3 minutes) per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Two
    A small globe or sphere of true daylight is magically created. The
    light is bright enough to light up a 1 2 foot (3.6m) area per each level of
    its creator's experience. Because it is daylight, it can ward off vampires
    and most other types of undead and demons who fear or are hurt by
    sunlight, keeping them at bay just beyond the edge of the light. The
    creator of the globe can mentally move it along with himself, or send it
    up to thirty feet (9.1m) ahead. The maximum speed at which the globe
    can travel is equal to a speed attribute of 12 .
Level 2 (Uses 1 action to cast)
  • Cleanse
    Range: Self, one person and the clothes he's wearing up to 10 feet (3m)
    away, or two people by touch.
    Duration : Instant.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Six
    This is a simple but useful spell designed to remove dirt and grime
    from the body of a living being and the clothes he wears. Magic energy
    flows over the person and magically removes dirt, grime, stains, and
    just about anything that the spell caster considers "unclean." The recipient
    of this magic instantly becomes spotless, from head to toe. The hair
    and body look as if right out of the shower (only dry) and the clothes as
    if freshly washed and dried. The spell cannot be used on body armor,
    buildings, vehicles, streets, or anything else, only living creatures and
    clothes/fabric. One pile of clothes, weighing no more than 25 pounds
    (11.25 kg; no living person) can also be washed in place of a specific
    character's clothes. Note: This spell only cleans off the surface of the
    target and will not rid them of diseases or poison, although it will kill
    most surface parasites, such as ticks and fleas.
  • Manipulate Objects
    Range: 50 feet (15.2m) + 10 feet (3 m) per level of experience; line of
    sight.
    Duration : Two minutes (8 melee rounds) per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None for inanimate objects. Living beings are immune
    to this magic.
    P.P.E.: Varies; two P.P.E. per five pounds (2.3 kg).
    The Manipulate Objects spell was designed to help a sorcerer when
    he needs an extra pair of hands, but has nobody to assist him. It is used
    mainly to hold an item in mid-air, to bring an item from across the
    room without having to get up and get it, and to use magic energy to
    pick up, move, carry or hold one or more small objects.
    The spell caster summons forth blue strands of magical energy that
    wrap around an item and bring it to him, hold it near or in place or still,
    or to pick up and carry it, following the mage around at waist or shoulder
    level . Being able to magically hold an item in mid-air until needed,
    or to magically carry or retrieve an item, allows the mage to keep his
    hands free to perform more delicate tasks. This also means the mystical movement
    of objects weighing less than 10 pounds (4.5kg) is very
    simple and requires little concentration. When the mage is not consciously
    manipulating an object, the item hangs suspended 3-5 feet (0.9 to 1.5 m) above the ground, usually within arm's reach.
    The P.P.E. cost varies with the combined weight of the objects, two
    P.P.E. points per five pounds (2.3kg).
    Inanimate objects get no save against this spell; this means that even
    tiny, lightweight robots get no save, although they may struggle or attack.
    Limitations:
    Maximum speed of moving objects that weigh 10 Ibs (4.5kg) or
    less is a speed factor of 10. Reduce speed by half when the total weight
    becomes 100 Ibs (45 kg) or mor .
    Maximum height: Six feet ( 1.8m).
    Maximum number of objects : Two per level of experience.
    Maximum weight: 10 pounds (4.5kg) per level of experience. The
    spell caster cannot manipulate more than his maximum weight, so a
    first level spell caster can manipulate up to two items with a combined
    weight of 10 Ibs (4.5kg), while a third level mage can manipulate as
    many as six items weighing up to 30 Ibs (13.5 kg).
    The magic force has the equivalent P.S. of 8, + 1 per additional level
    of the spell caster (9 at 2nd level, 10 at 3rd, etc.).
    The magic energy is designed to hold and carry objects, so it can not
    be used to open a container, open a door or window, shoot a gun, pull a
    trigger or lever, press a button, or tum a knob, however, a small object
    can be "manipulated" to gently press or tap against a button or switch
    to tum it on or off. The spell caster must concentrate to direct the object
    and each action by the object counts as one of the character' s melee actions.
    Likewise, the slow speed of movement, relatively low P.S., and the
    fact that this spell is not intended for combat, means that small objects
    can NOT be hurled or used to stab or pound an opponent. Each object
    manipulated to hit/attack requires the conscious focus of the spell
    caster, uses up one of his attacks per melee, and is easy to dodge or
    parry (the magic force is -2 to strike, and no other combat bonuses apply).
    Note: This magic cannot be used to pick pockets or steal items
    unnoticed. Nor to grab an item, lift it in the air and drop it. The magic
    energy will not drop anything, because it is designed to hold and carry.
    A few seconds before the spell duration elapses, the objects are gently
    lowered to a tabletop or the floor.
Level 3 (Uses 1 action to cast)
  • Create Wood
    Range: 10 feet (3m).
    Duration: Permanent.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable.
    P.P.E.: 10 for soft wood for burning, 20 for hard wood for building.
    Create Wood does just that. It forces magical energy to draw together
    particles and fibers from the surrounding air and area, bond them
    together and multiply them on a molecular level to create wood. The
    shape can be two foot (0.6m) long logs or six foot (1.8m) long, one
    foot (0.3m) wide planks. Hard wood costs more to make but is excellent
    for building; soft, weak wood is used for burning. The use of this
    spell has allowed Dweomer City (and others) to use wood in buildings
    and various tools/weapons/items without chopping down lots of trees.
    Thus, the city sits in the middle of pristine wilderness, making it even
    harder to detect.
    The amount of wood created varies: Up to 100 lbs. (45 kg) per every
    10 (soft) or 20 (hard, building wood) P.P.E. expended. Note: Both the
    Conjurer and Earth Warlock can cast this spell at half the P.P.E.
  • Ignite Fire
    Range: 40 feet (12.2m).
    Duration: Instant (counts only as one attack; fire lasts until it is put
    out).
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Six
    The spell causes spontaneous combustion, igniting any material that
    can burn. This means the mage could set a chair cushion, a jacket, paper,
    dry leaves, hair, etc., on fire. Note: Volatile substances that are
    contained in something, like gasoline in the gas tank of a car or a container,
    can NOT be ignited. Furthermore, the target to be set on fire
    must be clearly visible. Maximum area of affect is 3 feet (0.9m). If
    somebody's clothes or hair are set on fire, they have two melee rounds
    (30 seconds) to get it off or put the fire out before damage is inflicted;
    no other combat or action is possible as all energy is used on dousing
    the flame. Damage from the small fire is 2D6 S.D.C. per melee round
    (beginning after the first 2 melees).
Level 4 (Uses 1 action to cast)
  • Fool's Gold
    Range: 5 feet (1.5m).
    Duration : 20 melees per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: Standard.
    P.P.E .: Ten
    This Elemental magic enables the magician to cause any object to
    appear to be made of gold. After the mage leaves, the object will still
    retain its gold appearance until the spell elapses. The effect is temporary,
    and upon close examination by those who can recognize precious
    metals it is seen not to be gold. Those who save recognize it as worthless
    fool's gold.
Level 5 (Uses 1 action to cast)
  • Energy Disruption
    Range: 60 feet (18.3m).
    Duration: Three minutes (12 melees) per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E .: Twelve
    A particularly useful magic in a tech environment. The invocation
    will temporarily knockout, stop, or immobilize, any electrical device it
    is aimed at. This includes normal automobiles, computers, radios, surveillance
    cameras, sensors, appliances, entire fuse boxes, batteries,
    electric alarm systems, etc. The apparatus is not harmed in any way, it
    simply ceases to function. When the magic elapses, the item(s) work
    perfectly again, with no sign of malfunction, damage or energy loss.
    Can not affect M.D.C. environmental armor, power armor, robots or
    military vehicles.
  • Heal Wounds
    Range: Touch or 3 feet (0.9m) away.
    Duration: Instant.
    Saving Throw: Standard, if the person resists the magic.
    P.P.E.: Ten
    This powerful invocation will instantly heal minor physical wounds,
    such as bruises, cuts, gashes, bullet wounds, burned flesh and pulled
    muscles. It will not help against illness, internal damage to organs or
    nerves, broken bones or poisons/drugs.
    In the case of bullet wounds, the bullet should be removed first. If
    the bullet is left inside a person it will be a constant irritant causing
    chronic pain; reduce the character's P.E. attribute by one and P.P. attribute
    by one (and attribute bonuses accordingly) due to stiffness and
    discomfort.
    The heal wound magic restores 3D6 S.D.C. and 1D6 Hit Points.
Level 6 (Uses 2 actions to cast)
  • Create Water
    Range: 10 feet (3m), line of sight, or touch (of a container).
    Duration: Permanent.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Fifteen
    This spell enables the mage to conjure a quantity of water out of
    thin air by drawing and purifying moisture from the surrounding area,
    and made to appear in any container indicated by the spell caster. A
    container for the water must be available, or else he will have a wet
    mess to clean up on the floor. The spell caster can create one half gallon
    (1.9 liters) per level of experience. Half this amount in a desert,
    twice this amount at sea or in a rain forest. This magic can supply a
    town without, or miles from, a fresh water supply. Note: The Conjurer
    and Water Warlocks can create twice this amount of water for half the
    P.P.E. (7).
  • Energize Spell
    Range: Touch or 10 feet (3m) away.
    Duration: Special.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Twelve plus full P.P.E. amount of the original spell.
    Energize allows the mage to pump additional P.P.E. into one of his
    currently active spells to extend its duration. The same amount of
    P.P.E. that was required to activate and cast the spell in the first place
    is needed to extend its duration. The energize spell can be used on any
    other spell with a duration greater than a single melee round. Where the
    normal duration would normally end, being "energized," the renewed
    spell begins its full duration again, without pause or lapse of its effect.
    The main advantage of the energize spell, rather than just casting the
    spell again, is that those who have already fallen victim (failed to save)
    remain enthralled (do not get a new saving throw, which they would if
    the spell was recast). It is also ideal in situations where it would be
    helpful if the spell lasted longer, but the mage can not be there to cast a
    new spell; the energize spell would automatically continue the desired
    effect. This is particularly handy when casting magical flight, speed,
    superhuman endurance and similar spells on a character who will be
    leaving the company of the mage. If attempting to energize a spell cast
    on an opponent, the victim must be touched. Otherwise, being within
    10 feet (3m) is close enough. Note: The energize spell can only be cast
    once to extend the duration of a particular spell, effectively doubling
    the duration (nothing more). Limitation: Only spells Sixth level or less
    can be extended/energized this way.
  • Frequency Jamming
    Range: 100 feet (3m) per level of experience; line of sight or two machines
    by touch.
    Duration: Two melee rounds (30 seconds) per level of the spell
    caster's experience.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable; affects machines.
    P.P.E.: Fifteen
    This spell interferes with communications, transmissions and/or
    sensor systems (radios, radar, sonar, motion detector, heat sensor, CAT
    scan, lie detector, etc.) by magically jamming the frequencies used by
    that machine. This means no intelligible readings or communications
    can be delivered by the enchanted machine until the magic ends.
  • Teleport Lesser
    Range: Five miles (8 km) per level of experience; touch.
    Duration: Requires two full melees (30 seconds).
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Fifteen
    The power to transmit matter from one place to another. The
    Teleport: Lesser invocation is limited to non-living substances. Up to
    50 Ibs (22kg) can be instantly transported from the location of the spell
    weaver to any location miles away. The only requirements are that the
    mage touches the object to be teleported and that the location of where
    it is being sent to is known to him. Success Ratio: 80% +2% per level
    of the mage. An unsuccessful roll means that the object never arrived
    where it was supposed to and could be anywhere within the mage's
    range.
  • Tongues
    Range: Self or others by touch.
    Duration : 3 minutes (12 melees) per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Twelve
    The magic enables the character to perfectly understand and speak
    all spoken languages; 98% proficiency. An understanding of written
    languages is not provided by this magic. See the Eyes of Thoth.
Level 7 (Uses 2 actions to cast)
  • Dispel Magic Barriers
    Range: 100 feet (30.5m).
    Duration : Instant.
    Saving Throw: The magic spell being attacked automatically gets a
    standard saving throw (12) as if it were a person. If a successful save is
    made, the negation spell has no effect; the barrier remains.
    P.P.E.: Twenty
    The Dispel Magic Barriers invocation negates/dispels all magic barriers
    of any kind, including the Sorcerer's Seal, Carpet of Adhesion,
    Magic wall spells, ward spells, etc.
  • Negate Mechanics
    Range: One target mechanism up to 100 feet (30m) away or two by
    touch.
    Duration : One melee round (15 seconds).
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Twenty
    This spell gives magic an edge against technology. Essentially, one
    aspect of a machine, or machine part, targeted by this spell is momentarily
    paused or inhibited in some way. The spell caster can specify a
    specific target/intentional disruption when casting the spell. The simpler
    the mechanism the better, and this magic is ideal for temporarily
    inhibiting or freezing switches, triggers, buttons, locks, and small mechanical
    gears and pulleys. Thus, this magic causes only minor, momentary
    glitches and delays, but such impediments, even lasting only
    15 seconds, may be the difference between life and death or escape and
    captivity. Remember, this spell is designed to momentarily inhibit or, more to the
    point, momentarily stop some specific mechanical function,
    usually of a larger device. It does not damage the machine in any way.
    For example: The spell can be used to prevent a gun (of any kind)
    from firing, or delay a hand grenade from exploding when it should
    (adds 15 seconds before it detonates; hand grenades are simple devices).
    In the alternative, when used on a gun, a spell caster might make
    the optical sight or laser targeting of the weapon stop working (for 15
    seconds) or freeze the retractable stock or folding tripod, etc.
    Against a computer, the spell can momentarily lock it up. Data is
    not erased nor does the computer blink out, it (or the monitor, or keyboard)
    just won't respond for 15 seconds.
    Against a robot or cyborg, it can be used to momentarily freeze a
    joint, or knockout radar, a particular sensor, optic, or radio (no reading
    or communications), or make the blaster on the right arm not respond
    (won't fire for 15 seconds), or a jet pack not tum on (or not tum off, or
    sputter), etc. However, it cannot be used against cybernetic implants,
    M.O.M. implants, or artificial systems directly connected/linked to
    flesh, blood or internal organs (can not stop bionic lungs or heart), or
    any system encased or connected to living flesh. Likewise, bionic and
    cybernetic bio-systems are not affected by this magic, nor are nano-machines.
    Limitations: Devices and mechanisms affected can be no bigger
    than a basketball. Minor system malfunctions and glitches can be
    caused by this spell, but do not last very long and no permanent damage
    is inflicted to the device. Nothing major can be done either: a robot
    can not be forced to stop moving, or be made completely unable to attack.
    The spell inhibits performance by knocking out one specific system.
Level 8 (Uses 2 actions to cast)
  • Negate Magic
    Negate Magic
    Range: Touch or 60 feet (18.3m).
    Duration : Instant.
    Saving Throw: Special (Ritual magic has a greater chance of success).
    P.P.E.: Thirty
    This incantation will instantly cancel the effects or influence of
    most magic. To determine whether the negation is successful or not roll
    a saving throw. If the roll is a successful save against the magic in
    place, its influence is immediately destroyed, negated, canceled. 12, 13,
    14, or 15 is needed for spell magic depending on the experience level
    of the mage (usually 12 or 13 is needed), meanwhile 16 or higher to
    save vs ritual magic. A failed save means the negation attempt did not
    work. Try again if sufficient P.P.E. is available.
    Negation will not work against possession, Exorcism, Constrain Being,
    Banishment, Talisman, Amulet, Enchanted objects, Symbols/Circles
    of protection (or magically drawn circles of any kind), wards,
    summoning magic, Zombies, Golems, Restoration, magical healings or
    cures. Negation can be attempted to cancel a spell curse, but only has a
    01-25% possibility of succeeding. Of course, it has no effect against
    psychic abilities or Techno-Wizard or Bio-Wizard/rune devices.
  • Power Weapon
    Range: One weapon b y touch.
    Duration: Two melee rounds (30 seconds) per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Thirty-Five
    This spell temporarily infuses an S.D.C. melee weapon (knife,
    spear, sword, club, etc.) with great magical energy. For the duration of
    the spell, the weapon will inflict the Mega-Damage equivalent of the
    S.D.C. weapon; i.e. a knife that does 1D6 S.D.c. now does 1D6 M.D.,
    or a mace that does 2D6 S.D.C. now does 2D6 M.D., and so on.
    In the alternative, this spell can be used to increase the damage capability
    of Mega-Damage melee weapons (Vibro-Blades, etc.) or M.D.
    magic weapons (rune swords, TW-weapons, etc.) by 25%. So a magical
    flaming sword that normally does 4D6 M.D. now does 5D6, a Vibro-Blade that
    does 2D6 now does 4D4 M.D., etc. Note: This magic does not work on
    long-range weapons like the bow and arrow, projectile weapons or energy guns.
    Casting this spell on the same weapon repeatedly has no cumulative effect.
  • Stone to Flesh
    Range: 12 feet (3.6m).
    Duration : Instant/permanent.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Thirty
    This spell transforms stone to flesh and can restore people who have
    been turned to stone back to normal. The spell caster can change 50
    pounds (22 kg) of stone per level of experience.
Level 9 (Uses 2 actions to cast)
  • Create Steel
    Range: Can be cast up to 10 feet (3 m) away.
    Duration: Permanent.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable.
    P.P.E.: Sixty-Eight; half that number for Earth Warlocks with this
    spell.
    The name of this powerful spell is a bit of a misnomer, and might
    more appropriately be entitled "recycle metal." The spell caster can
    take metal scraps, even those corroded with rust, and magically tum
    them into sheets, bars, poles or beams of good, useable metal. The advantage
    of this magical recycled metal is that industrial recycling sees a
    certain amount of loss through the recycling process (not to mention
    the cost, equipment and manpower necessary). The spell not only transforms
    the metal, but there is no loss of the material and, in fact, there is
    5% more metal (per level of experience) created from the initial scrap.
    In addition, there is no need for a smelting facility, machines or workmen,
    other than those needed to haul and store the finished product.
    Limitations:
    • S.D.C. Materials: Effective only on the following metal ores and alloys:
    Iron, steel, tungsten, cobalt, manganese, chromium, molybdenum,
    zinc, nickel, copper, bronze, bauxite, and aluminum (the spell
    adds the tiny amount of carbon and other trace elements to make
    steel and other alloys). The spell can be worked on a pile of unseparated
    scrap metal and magically separate metals and alloys to create
    individual piles of pure metals, or put them back together as the desired
    alloy(s).
    • 100 pounds (45 kg) of raw material per level of experience, with
    roughly 200 S.D.C. (Conjurers and Earth Warlocks can create twice
    as much at half the P.P.E. cost).
    The final product is high quality metal ready for industrial use
    - construction, smelting, etc. It cannot be used to magically repair
    finished products such as power and body armor, robots, vehicles,
    etc., except as raw materials that are taken, retooled and used by
    manufacturers, operators, builders, etc., to make conventional repairs
    (soldering, welding, casting, etc.).
    • Mega-Damage Steel can be "recycled" provided M.D.C. metal
    scraps are available, but at the pitiful rate of 10 pounds (4.5 kg) per
    spell (not per level), with approximately 15 M.D.C.
    Note: This spell can not be used to tum perfectly good metals/materials,
    machinery, vehicles, or devices connected to a power source into
    raw materials, nor tum metal material worn, used or connected to a living
    being; it must be scrap or raw ore.
  • Water to Wine
    Range: 12 feet (3.6m).
    Duration : Instant/permanent.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Forty
    Another transformation spell, the spell caster is able to change ordinary
    fresh water into wine, affecting ten gallons (37.9 liters) per level
    of the spell caster' s experience. The wine is of fair to average quality,
    with the quality increasing by 5% per each level of the sorcerer's experience.
Level 10 (Uses 2 actions to cast)
  • Restore Limb
    Range: Touch.
    Duration: Permanent.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Eighty
    This powerful healing magic enables the mage to "restore" (i.e. reattach)
    a single severed limb (hand, arm, leg) or appendage (nose, ear,
    finger, etc.) on the suffering individual. The reattached limb or appendage
    functions 100% as it did before it was severed and the magic leaves
    no scar. Only the actual limb can be attached in this fashion, substitutes
    are not possible. Furthermore, the severed limb cannot have been detached
    for more than 12 hours per level of the sorcerer (i.e. a 6th level
    mage can reattach a limb as much as 71 hours and 55 minutes after it
    was severed). The ritual takes five minutes.
  • Speed Weapon
    Range: Touch.
    Duration : One melee round per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred
    The Speed Weapon spell infuses a melee weapon (sword, ax, mace,
    club, etc.) with magical energy that enables the user of the weapon (the
    mage or anyone) to use it with amazing speed, if not agility (no additional
    combat bonuses). Thus, when using the enchanted weapon, the
    character has twice as many attacks per melee round! The additional attacks
    are possible only with the enchanted weapon, so if a different
    weapon or action is taken, it uses up the equivalent of two of the magic
    weapon's attacks. For example, a character with six attacks per melee
    round now has 12 if he uses all of his melee attacks/actions with the enchanted
    Speed Weapon. Each pair of attacks with the enchanted
    weapon effectively counts as one of the character' s usual attacks. Thus,
    if he uses the Speed Weapon to strike four times, he uses up two of his
    usual attacks, but if he decides to use his blaster once or to dodge an incoming
    attack, that action uses up two of the possible attacks with the
    Speed Weapon (parry does not use up an attack action). Note: This
    spell can not be used on magic weapons, including Bio-Wizard, Rune,
    or Techno-Wizard weapons nor on Automatons, power armor, robots or
    vehicles.
  • Super-Healing
    Range: One character by touch (cannot be used on oneself).
    Duration : Instant.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: Seventy
    A powerful healing spell that can heal external and internal injuries/
    wounds of Mega-Damage creatures (dinosaurs, dragons, supernatural
    beings, etc.). Super-healing restores 4D6 M.D. to Mega-Damage
    creatures. Not applicable to S.D.C/Hit Point creatures.
  • Wards
    Range: Varies with type.
    Duration: Effects vary with type.
    Saving Throw: Standard; spells are base 12, wards created by ritual
    magic are 16.
    P.P.E.: Ninety
    The Wards invocation creates mystic symbols used to protect items
    of value, to protect dwellings, and as booby traps. The ward can be cast
    on a door or window, a section of floor, a cabinet or on a specific item
    such as a book or statue. The ward symbols on the object are always
    obvious, to serve as a warning. When somebody, other than the sorcerer
    who created them, touches the object, a spell is triggered. The following
    wards can be created. Each ward invocation will create two
    separate wards, the ritual invocation will create three. The object to be
    warded must be present.
    Alarm : A screeching, siren-like noise is instantly sounded and continues
    to blare for ten minutes. The sound can be easily heard through
    closed doors up to 100 feet (30m) away.
    Fear: An aura of fear engulfs everybody within 20 feet (6m) of the
    ward. Each person must roll to save vs magic or be overwhelmed by
    terror. Effects are identical to the second level fear invocation.
    Fire Bolt: The person touching the item is struck by a Fire Bolt
    causing 6D6 damage; no saving throw is applicable. Same as the fourth
    level invocation.
    Paralysis (lesser): The ward temporarily paralyzes the person' s
    hand and arm for 1D4 hours. Effects are identical to the third level invocation.
    Sleep: The ward will put to sleep everybody within a ten foot (3 m)
    area around it. Each person must roll to save versus magic. The sleep
    lasts for 6D6 minutes. Effects are identical to the fifth level spell.
    Agony: The person who touches the object is wracked with agony
    for 2D8 melees. The effects are identical to the seventh level invocation.
    Curse (minor): Inflicts a minor curse identical to the eighth level
    invocation except that it will linger for 1D6 weeks.
    Curse (phobia): Inflicts a phobia curse identical to the ninth level
    invocation except that it will linger for 1D4 weeks.
    Banishment (counts as two wards): Will instantly force lesser supernatural
    beings from the area, just like the tenth level invocation.
    Plus, the creature must leave the object where it rests.

    After a ward has been triggered, its magic is used up and it disappears.
    A ward can last for centuries if left undisturbed. The life span of
    a ward is 150 years per level of the mage.


Special: Bonding Ritual - exclusive to the High Magus O.C.C. and Lords of Magic

Range: Inside a magic circle.
Duration : Permanent; until the Automaton is destroyed or the
Controller slain.
Time to cast: 24 hours.
Saving Throw: Not applicable.
P.P .E. Cost: 20 from the High Magus to initiate the ritual and
20 P.P.E. spent by the recipient Controller.
The Bonding Ritual can only be performed on a special subset
of the Battle Magus appropriately known as the Controller
O.C.C. The recipient of the "Bonding" must have special training
and orientation in order to perform the ritual and then to
control the Automaton. The ritual only costs the Controller/recipient
20 P.P.E., but requires the Controller to spend 24 hours
in physical contact with the construct, usually in meditation. After
this time, he or she can mentally control its every movement
as if it were their own body. See the sections on Automatons
and the Controller O.C.C. for details.

Salomón's List of Spells Known (Spell Level 11)

Level 11 (Uses 3 actions to cast)
  • Anti Magic Cloud
    Range: 100 foot (30.5m) radius per level of the spell caster.
    Duration : 20 melees per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: Special. Only a Natural (unmodified) 18, 19 to 20
    saves against the cloud, and even these lucky few will find their
    magic reduced to half strength.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Forty
    Those who are ignorant of the great old magics insist that this spell
    never existed, that it is impossible, merely another myth. They are
    wrong. This incredible spell creates an ominous, dark gray-brown
    cloud large enough to hang over an entire town. It can not be dispelled
    magically or by manipulating elemental/atmospheric conditions. The
    cloud's effect is as singular as it is spectacular; it simply negates all
    magic! Spell casters can not use magic of any kind, Techno-Wizard devices,
    potions and charms are impotent. Any object of magic (except
    runes and magic weapons) is rendered harmless as long as it is under
    the Anti-Magic Cloud. The magic returns when the cloud is canceled.
    Only the creator of the cloud is not affected, giving that mage a tremendous
    advantage over other sorcerers caught in the cloud. If outside the
    cloud's range the magic abilities return, but any magic that enters it falters
    (as above) and magic spells cast from outside into the cloud covered
    area are negated the instant they enter the Anti-Magic Cloud.
  • Astral Hole
    Range: Self.
    Duratio n : One melee round ( 15 seconds) per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Twenty
    Astral Hole creates an invisible (only the caster and those who can
    see spirits or the Astral Plane can see it), mobile, mentally controlled
    extra-dimensional portal that effectively follows the spell caster wherever
    he goes. This portal can be used by the spell caster (and only the
    spell caster) in a number of ways. Ultimately, the Astral Hole makes
    the mage almost impossible to pin down.
    The mage can use the Astral Hole to "jump" or teleport a short distance
    by stepping in and willing himself to another location that was
    visible from the physical world just before he stepped into the Astral
    Plane from his current location. Each such teleport counts as two melee
    actions. This use is limited by line of sight (2000 feetl 610m maximum,
    double at sea or on open plains). The mage can not teleport to someplace
    he can not see clearly.
    Another use involves avoiding enemy fire. When attacked, the spell
    caster simply sidesteps, into the hole, and disappears, then steps back
    out. Because of the speed and ease with which this is done, it only uses
    up one melee action. Furthermore, the spell caster gets a bonus of +2 to
    dodge when using an Astral Hole. He can dodge and teleport out of
    harm's way almost endlessly. The mage can not stay inside the Astral
    Hole for more than a few seconds, however, as it is a passageway, not a
    pocket dimension.
    When an Astral Hole is opened and the spell caster also uses Astral
    Projection to travel the Astral Plane, he can automatically find his way
    back to the physical world, using the Astral Hole as a beacon and doorway
    home. Note that every melee round (15 seconds) in the physical
    world is the equivalent of five minutes in the Astral Plane.
  • Bottomless Pit
    Range: 50 feet (15.2m). The portal/hole appears to be about four feet
    (1.2m) in diameter, per level of the spell caster.
    Duration : Two minutes per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: Dodge.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred
    This devious spell uses a minor dimensional portal to temporarily
    remove an enemy from the situation. The portal appears on the ground
    (can not be made to appear in mid-air or on walls, etc.), under the feet
    of the intended victim. As a trap, the hole can be created and left in one
    spot, concealed by darkness or covered with netting and twigs or camouflage
    like a real pit. At the moment the pit opens up beneath an opponent's
    feet, or the instant a character falls into a concealed one, that
    character may attempt to dodge. In this case, it is an attempt to twist
    and grab a hand-hold to avoid falling down into the pit (needs a 17 or
    better to do so). If an opponent's dodge is successful, but the spell
    caster has visual contact, the mage can move the Bottomless Pit beneath
    his target' s feet again; such an action counts as one of the sorcerer's melee attacks.
    Those who fall into the pit are hurtled through an other-dimensional
    void (utter blackness). There is no way to escape until the spell wears
    off, except by Dimensional Portal, Dimensional Teleportation (a power
    common to most greater demons, dragons and gods) or a similar spell.
    The ability to fly can not help the character escape because once one
    has fallen in, he is actually inside a different dimension with no apparent
    exit. However, those who can fly may feel more comfortable and
    can glide and move around the empty void, rather than "fall," but they
    are still lost and trapped in the void.
    If others are foolish enough to go into the pit, they suffer the same
    fate as the first victim - once somebody has fallen in, the Bottomless
    Pit can not be moved by the spell caster. When the spell duration runs
    out, any victims are spit out, unharmed, right where they started. The
    portal is not very large, but anything that comes into contact with it will
    be pulled through, even tanks or dragons. Buildings and other parts of
    the landscape do not fall into the pit.
    The advantage of this spell is that an opponent is temporarily, but
    completely, removed from the environment. He has no ability to attack
    or influence events (except by his absence) and is completely unaware
    of the events that transpire while he is gone (can not hear, see, smell, or
    sense anything in the "real" world).
  • Create Mummy(Ritual)
    Range: Touch.
    Duration : Exists until destroyed.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Sixty
    The mummy invocation is a Necromantic ritual that turns a corpse
    into one of the undead. The ritual involves treating pure linen strips of
    cloth with a mystic solution and wrapping the body in the cloth. The
    incantation brings to life (if you can call it that) a sort of humanoid robot
    devoid of emotions and fearless. Like a machine, the barely intelligent
    "thing" follows simple orders to the best of its ability. The mummy is
    incapable of understanding complex commands, or performing any
    skills. It is simply a lumbering corpse. Of course, this combined with
    its near indestructibility makes it an ideal guardian. A simple command
    like "Kill all who enter" (with the exception of the mage, of course) is
    all that it needs to know. A mummy can not speak (or read) but grunts,
    growls and howls.
    The most devastating aspect of the damnable creature is that it is
    dead, and feels no pain or emotions. Bullets, knives, clubs, and even
    most magic, have no affect against the monster. Physical attacks simply
    nick or poke holes into a lifeless husk. Magic charms, sleeps, curses, illusions,
    illness, paralysis, and turn dead (the mummy is an undead) do
    nothing at all. Banishment does not work because the mummy is not
    actually a living supernatural creature. Negation simply does not work
    and Remove Curse is not applicable.
    The only way to stop a mummy is to: 1) Trap or imprison it. 2)
    Blow it to bits. 3) Burn it up. Note : Protection circles will hold a
    mummy at bay. Fire is its one major weakness and it instinctively
    knows that, so a wall of fire or a torch or flamethrower may also keep it
    at bay. The magic is present in both the dead body and the linen wrappings.
    If the wrappings are destroyed, fire does double damage to the
    corpse, and even sunlight will inflict 3D6 points of damage per melee
    of exposure.
    The Mummy:
    • I.Q. 4, P.S. 20, Speed 7
    • Three attacks per melee, 2D6 S.D.C. damage by hand/punch.
    • + 5 S.D.C. to damage.
    • + 1 to parry, no dodge or initiative bonus.
    • Most psychic powers and magic have no effect.
    • Fearless; no Horror Factors scare it. However, small fires have a
    Horror Factor of 7 and larger fires, man-sized or bigger, have a Horror
    Factor of 13 .
    • S.D.C. o f Linen Wrappings: 5 0 (bullets d o effectively no damage).
    • S.D.C. of Corpse: 70, but only fire and explosives damage it. Sunlight
    hurts it only if all or most of the protective cloth wrappings
    have been destroyed. A typical torch will do 1D6 damage each time
    it is struck by one. Note: Mummies can be dressed in M.D.C. body
    armor and given hand-held weapons like swords and clubs. They are
    not capable of shooting guns or using equipment.
  • Create Magic Scroll
    Range: Identical to spell placed on scroll.
    Duration: Permanent; the spell placed on the scroll has standard duration.
    Saving Throw: Standard magic save; 12 or higher.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred plus the P.P.E. needed to cast the magic spell
    placed on the scroll.
    This spell is similar to the Amulet and Talisman spells in that the
    sorcerer is able to transfer mystic energy and powers into an inanimate
    object. In this case, the mage can magically make the words to a magic
    spell appear on paper. The only real limitation other than sufficient
    P.P.E. is that the mage must be able to read and write. If he can not
    read, he can not create a scroll.
    Literate mages summon forth the energy needed and write the
    words of a spell in the sand or dirt with a stick while speaking the
    words aloud. The words magically appear on the paper as he writes and
    speaks them. When done, the spell has been transferred to the paper
    and can be read and used by anybody who can read the particular language
    it was written in. Because the paper or parchment has been
    charged with P.P.E., anyone, fellow mage or housewife, can read the
    scroll and the magic spell will be cast. To activate the scroll the spell
    must be read aloud.
    The words on a scroll disappear the moment they are read aloud,
    leaving only a blank piece of paper. No camera of any kind can photograph/
    record the mystic writing (appears blank) and for some inexplicable
    reason, a person can never seem to correctly copy the spell down no
    matter how literate and educated he may be. This is why scroll conversion
    is so difficult.
    Note: The power of the scroll spell can be controlled by its creator
    and can range from level one potency to the current level of its creator.
    However, the creator' s enhanced spell strength can not be transferred,
    so all saving throws from scroll magic are 12 if created as a spell or 16
    if created a s part of a ritual.
  • Curse: Neurosis
    Range: Touch.
    Duration: Six hours per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: Standard
    P.P.E.: Ninety-five
    This incantation afflicts its victim with a neurotic disorder. The spell caster can
    implant one specific neurosis or roll on the Random Neurosis Table in the
    insanity section of the core rule book. The insanity is temporary and fades
    away in time (i.e. when the duration has elapsed).
  • Curse of the World Bizarre
    Range: 50 feet/15.2 m (line of sight) or by touch.
    Duration : 1D4 days per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: -1 to save.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred
    This is a powerful, and in many ways, a very cruel curse. The chosen
    target gets to make a save vs magic. A failed roll indicates they
    have been cursed. The cursed individual sees everything in the manner
    of the World Bizarre spell. Everything in sight, including themselves, is
    seen as something monstrous with writhing tentacles, slobbering
    mouths, glaring eyes, etc. These things are a mental delusion, but to the
    victim they seem very real. Sleep is almost impossible, and the victim
    of this curse lives in a constant state of fear, agitation and uncertainty.
    Worse, it is impossible for him to discern "real" monsters from those
    he imagines to be monsters.
    Characters with an M.E. of 10 or higher will be able to understand
    that this is an illusion, but are still paranoid, jumpy, and easily startled
    and confused (can not tell real monsters apart from the imagined). Penalties
    (from mental and physical exhaustion and disorientation): -20%
    on skill performance, -3 on initiative, reduce speed by 25%, reduce attacks
    per melee round by one, and cannot recognize real monsters. Characters with an M.E. of 9
    or less, suffer double the penalties noted above, and may come to believe their delusion
    is real! Roll once on the following table to determine permanent insanity:
    01-30% : Lucked out! No permanent insanity .
    31-40% : Phobia: Monstrous looking demons.
    41-50% : Phobia of the spell caster who gave him the curse.
    51-60%: Obsession: Monsters and demons; hates 'em and likes to
    see them suffer and be destroyed.
    61-70% : Delusion: Even after returning to normal, the character believes
    he is really a superhuman monster banished from his demonic
    home world and forced to walk among humans as a punishment for
    some crime or act of betrayal (helped humans, stood against his master,
    etc.). The delusional character may even fabricate stories of his past life
    as a demon and an imaginary crime for this punishment of being made
    "mortal."
    71-80%: Affective Disorder: Disgusted by anything with tentacles
    or slime, and will go to any lengths to avoid them.
    81-90%: Intimidated by Monsters and Demons: The first set of penalties
    above occur whenever threatened by a monster. Tries to avoid
    them.
    91-00%: Invasion of the Body Snatchers Syndrome: Acute paranoia
    toward all non-humans, especially shapechangers - "They're out there,
    you know. Monsters hiding in human form. I know! I've seen it! I am
    one!! "
    Note: Curse of the World Bizarre is commonly used in certain
    magic-using settlements as a punishment for criminals. They are inflicted
    with the curse, then exiled.
  • Disharmonize
    Range: The spell can be cast up to 1 000 feet (305 m) away.
    Radius of Affect: 50 feet ( 1 5.2 m) per level of experience.
    Duration : Five minutes per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: Standard.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Fifty
    This spell is designed to disrupt and confuse organized units of the
    enemy (large groups of 20 or more people). Upon casting the spell, the
    mage is surrounded by an aura of hazy light that expands in all directions.
    Each enemy (known allies are unaffected) must save vs magic.
    Success indicates that the spell has no effect. Failure means the mind of
    the enemy has been clouded by the spell. Those who fall to disharmony
    will be unable to act quickly, make decisions or properly follow orders.
    They are also incapable of working in concert with their fellows. Essentially,
    those affected cease to become a cohesive group and degrade
    into confused individuals. In addition, those affected lose half their attacks
    per melee round, lose initiative, and perform skills at -20% (due
    to hesitation and uncertainty).
  • Energy Sphere
    Energy Sphere
    Range: 100 feet (30.5 m).
    Duration: Two days per level of experience, or until used up.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Twenty
    Energy Sphere creates a globe of blue energy similar to that seen
    along ley lines. The mage can create this sphere through the expenditure
    of 1 20 P.P.E. but then must pump additional P.P.E. into it within
    the next 10 minutes or it fades away. This additional energy (up to 100
    P.P.E. per level of the spell caster) must come from the mage, another
    sorcerer, dragon, god, blood sacrifice or drawn from a ley line nexus
    when energy is high (eclipse, solstice, etc.). The magic energy contained
    in the basketball-sized energy sphere will follow the mage wherever
    he goes, floating in mid-air above his right or left shoulder, and
    holds the energy until he needs it. This storage of potentially large
    amounts of energy can be drawn upon by either the mage who created
    it or one specific person whom the mage gives the sphere to as a gift or
    reward (in this case, only that person can draw upon the energy). The sphere is typically created when a practitioner of magic knows that he
    will need a large amount of P.P.E. to cast a high level spell, ritual or a
    number of spells beyond his normal limit (Le. combat, construction, dimensional
    travel, etc.). This spell, said to have been created by Thoth
    or the legendary Old Ones, is sometimes used by gods and demon lords
    to give their mortal minions and or champions additional power to accomplish
    great feats.
    The energy reserve in the sphere must be used within a limited period
    (typically within a matter of days) or the sphere and the P.P.E. will
    be wasted when it fades away. The person to whom the Energy Sphere
    belongs can draw on the P.P.E. reserve in any increments from a few
    points at a time to whatever its total power reserve may be in a single
    spell. The sphere is impervious to most attacks but can be destroyed by
    500 M.D. points and loses 2D6x1O P.P.E. per minute in an Anti-Magic
    Cloud. A successful Negate Magic will drain it of 6D6 P.P.E. each time
    a negation is cast on it, but Dispel Magic Barrier has no affect on it.
    Psi-Stalkers and most other P.P.E. vampires can not draw upon this
    concentrated and protected energy source.
  • Firequake
    Range: Up to 500 feet (152m) away.
    Radius of Affect: To a 100 foot (30.5m) radius, enough to engulf 4-6
    average houses and their backyards.
    Damage: Varies, see description.
    Duration : One melee round per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Sixty
    This spell causes an area of the ground to rumble, tremble, and
    crack, as well as spew forth clouds of sulfur and gouts of fire. All beings
    in the area of effect find it difficult to move atop the moving earth
    any faster than 10% their normal speed (crawling may be better), and
    eyes will bum and tear from the sulfuric gas. It is difficult to breathe
    (roughly same as tear gas; -9 to strike, parry, and dodge, -5 on initiative,
    lose one melee action per round) and those caught in the erupting
    turmoil must dodge jets of flame shooting up from the ground (roll
    once per character, per melee round). A failed dodge means getting hit
    by the shooting flame and taking 5D6 M.D. Large vehicles and giant
    robots (20 feet/6 m or bigger) take triple damage. It should take most
    people 2D4 melee rounds to escape. When the magic is over, the area
    will look unscathed, as if nothing happened, except for the burnt and
    injured people, animals and property.
    Note: Available to Earth Warlocks as an 8th level spell at half the
    P.P.E. (80).
  • Id Alter Ego
    Id Alter Ego
    Range: Self or other up to 60 feet ( 1 8.3 m) away.
    Duration : Three minutes per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E. : One Hundred Thirty; spending an additional Two Hundred
    P.P.E. will add one hour to the duration!
    Id Alter Ego creates a magical double of the spell's target. The character
    affected will feel a strange sensation, but is not likely to realize
    that he or she has been magically attacked. Sixty feet ( 1 8.3 m) away, an
    identical copy of the individual takes shape in a matter of seconds. This
    "doppleganger" looks exactly like the character it mimics, right down
    to the clothing and weapons at the moment of enchantment. However,
    most weapons and gear are fakes. Magic weapons and magic items can
    not be duplicated, nor can alien devices, explosives or complex devices
    (power armor, cybernetics, energy rifles, computers, etc.). Likewise,
    the magical doppleganger does not possess any psionic abilities or
    P.P.E. to cast spells, although if it is the Alter Ego of a sorcerer, the
    fake will have the knowledge to cast spells and may be able to draw
    upon other sources of P.P.E. to cast magic (i.e. ley lines, blood sacrifices,
    etc.).
    The impostor has all the physical and mental attributes, Hit Points
    and 40 magical M.D.C., plus any armor it may secure, as well as the
    memories and skills of the person it imitates (memories are limited to
    those up to the moment of its creation; the two are not linked in any
    way).
    The frightening difference is that the Id Alter Ego has the exact opposite
    alignment and disposition. The Id Alter Ego is also extremely
    aggressive, hostile toward others, and prone to create conflict. If the alter
    ego is of a good alignment (the original having been evil), it may
    challenge, fight, cheat or betray fellow scoundrels. If of an evil alignment
    (the original having been good), the Id Alter Ego may betray,
    cheat, or fight friends or allies, start brawls, molest women, steal from
    the clergy, etc. If the original character is a selfish alignment, roll percentile
    dice : 01-50, the fake is good, 51-00, the fake is evil.
    If approached by the "real" character, the Id Alter Ego treats him
    with disdain and hostility, like twin brothers who despise each other.
    Although most of the weapons duplicated by the magic are nothing
    more than harmless props, the temporary fake possesses the knowledge
    of the original and can buy, borrow, or steal weapons and equipment it
    can use to fight or to cause trouble. The Id Alter Ego quickly engages
    in activity that is detrimental to the "real" character and or the things he
    or she loves and believes in.
    This spell only works on living beings, and affects any mortal creature,
    from humans, Elves, Ogres and Wolfen to most D-Bees. The spell
    has no effect on Mega-Damage beings, creatures of magic or supernatural
    beings. Although called the "Id Alter Ego," this magical duplicate
    is not the dark (or good) side of the character and does not actually reflect
    any secret emotions or desires of the original. It is purely a temporary
    magical construct designed to cause trouble and create confusion.
  • Illusionary Terrain
    Range: Can be cast up to 500 (152m) away and affects 3,000x3,000
    foot (914x914 m) area per level of the spell caster; area affect.
    Duration: 30 minutes per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: -1 to save against a simple illusion, -4 to save vs an
    elaborate one (only -3 if an alien looking terrain).
    P.P.E.: Fifty-Five for a simple "visual" illusion (no sound, smells, rustling
    of the wind, etc.); few details. One Hundred Twenty for an
    elaborate illusion, Le. a complete landscape (of whatever) that
    seems alive and real in every way - scurrying animals, chirping
    birds, the smell of flowers and plants, moving clouds, etc.
    Illusory Terrain is fundamentally the same as the 10th level spell, Illusory
    Forest
    , except that virtually any type of terrain and landscape
    can be created.
    Note: Below is the text of Illusory Forest for convenience:
    This spell enables the mage to create an illusion of a forest: the trees
    and vegetation of a typical woodland or jungle. The exact type of flora
    and details are up to the imagination of the spell caster and can be made
    to fit in with the surroundings or look unique, frightening, or downright
    alien.
    A simple forest illusion is ideal for camouflage or making an area
    seem "spooky" or too dense and treacherous (better to go around), as to
    hopefully keep would-be pursuers and opponents, or travelers away.
    The simple illusion relies entirely on the visual image alone, meaning
    there are no sounds, smells, or motion (animals, birds, insects ... life!)
    that a real fo rest has. Still, this deceptive "image" is effective from a
    distance and when placed in a real fo rest to change its appearance (ambient
    animal sounds and smells often seem to be part of the illusion).
    Changing the appearance of a forest can be used to conceal landmarks
    (the giant oak, the dead tree, etc.) or to make false ones, or make them
    appear in the wrong place. These tactics can confuse and/or misdirect
    travelers/opponents, or make the area seem menacing or too difficult to
    traverse.
    The elaborate fo rest illusion will have all the sights, scents, and
    sounds of the genuine article and seems very real. It can be used for all
    the purposes noted above as well as to conceal a lair, etc. The lush, illusory
    canopy of trees will conceal people and places on the ground from
    aerial observers.
    Note: Most people are not likely to look closely at a forest, especially
    if it is being observed from a vehicle, the air or from a distance,
    nor is there any reason to suspect that what they see is not real . Also
    note that this type of illusion is a sort of magical hologram show, allowing
    the false image to be captured on film - however, it will not
    register on most heat sensors.
    Should someone penetrate the forest, they will quickly realize that
    something is not right, because the trees and vegetation are insubstantial,
    a ghostly apparition of a genuine forest. Hands, energy blasts, and
    vehicles will pass right through the illusion. This will indicate that the
    fo rest is not real, but those who fail to save versus magic will continue
    to see it clearly and have trouble telling what is real and what is an illusion.
    This is especially difficult when an illusionary forest is combined
    with a genuine forest. Many a cocky adventurer has driven his vehicle
    into a "real" tree concealed within an illusionary forest - rocks, hills,
    caves and man-made structures will appear as their genuine shape, but
    can be obscured/covered by illusionary foliage and trees. Likewise, vehicles
    hidden in the illusion, although visible to those who save against
    the illusion, will seemingly appear and disappear through solid trees
    and vegetation to those who fail to save.
  • Immure Entity
    Range: Touch or 20 feet (6.1m)
    Duration: Instant, and the imprisonment is indefinite.
    Saving Throw: Standard.
    P.P.E.: Two Hundred
    This invocation is not a summoning ritual, but is extremely
    useful in directing and controlling supernatural "Entities." The
    spell can actually imprison an Entity inside an object. The act of
    imprisonment can be punishment or as part of a scheme. An imprisoned
    Entity still retains all of its abilities, although it is trapped.
    Consequently, a seemingly harmless ring or medal
    could contain an Entity which can still use its abilities to help or
    hurt. The immured Entity must obey the mage who imprisoned
    it (though it gets a new saving throw vs spell each time a command
    is given, and can refuse if it succeeds), and can not strike
    out at him while imprisoned. However, if it escapes (rather than
    being willingly released by the mage), the Entity is certain to
    seek to punish, hurt or kill the mage who captured it.
    There are only a few ways to free an Immured Entity. The
    spell caster who trapped it releases it by canceling the magic,
    Exorcism performed by a priest or spell caster, or by destroying
    the object in which it is imprisoned. To prevent easy escape, the
    spell caster usually uses a hard, durable substance, such as metals,
    stones and gems, but any non-living substance can be used
    (wood, bone, etc.). See Entities in the Monsters and Animals
    sourcebook for specific types and powers.
    This spell can also be used on Lesser Demons such as
    Labassu, and most other lesser non-corporeal, supernatural spirits,
    but costs double the P.P.E. Note: This spell cannot be used
    to imprison Astral Travelers or Astral Beings. Characters of a
    good alignment are not likely to imprison, enslave and command
    even hideous beings like Entities. However, they may use
    the magic to capture an Entity that has been haunting or hurting
    people and take it someplace it cannot do serious harm and release
    it. A released Entity will be unhappy but will not attack his
    captor, glad simply to have been let go. However, one that gets
    loose on its own, especially if it has been enslaved, will seek revenge.
  • Ley Line Storm Defense
    Range: 1 0 foot (3 m) diameter per level o f the spell caster, x l O if performed
    at a ley line nexus. x I 00 if a triangle of connecting ley lines
    is involved, purging the storm from the area along, within and
    around the triangle.
    Duration: 10 minutes per level of the spell caster, x10 if performed at
    a ley line nexus, x 100 if done at a nexus that is part of a triangular
    conjunction of ley lines.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable.
    Limitations: Requires one or more ley lines and knowledge that a Ley
    Line Storm is coming (Line Walkers and Shifters can sense a coming
    Storm at least 1D4x 10 minutes before it arrives).
    P.P.E. : 180 (half for Ley Line Walkers and Shifters).
    This spell creates an invisible barrier over the defended area that
    causes natural and magically created Ley Line Storms to skip over it to
    continue down the line. If the area of protection is at the end of a line it
    will either send it back in the direction it came or down a different, intersecting
    line. Note: The cities of Tolkeen and Freehold use this spell
    whenever a storm is on the horizon to protect most of their respective
    communities.
  • Mindshatter
    Range: Touch.
    Duration: Special; 24 hours minimum.
    Saving Throw: -2 to save against the initial mental attack, standard every
    24 hours thereafter.
    P.P.E.:One Hundred Thirty
    Mindshatter is a crippling spell used when the target is wanted alive
    (for whatever reason) but incapacitated. The spell caster must touch his
    or her victim, but any contact will suffice, even through environmental
    body and power armor. Magical energies then rage through the target' s
    mind. The victim' s psyche is (temporarily) shattered, causing the character
    to lose sight of his self and very existence. For the duration of this
    enchantment, the victim has no sense of time or being, and memories,
    skills, fighting abilities, goals, alignment, and awareness are gone. The
    victim is effectively magically lobotomized, becoming a walking zombie
    with only faint glimmers of awareness (may be momentarily fascinated
    by a butterfly, console a frightened child, giggle, and so on).
    Every 24 hours, the character gets to make a saving throw vs magic. If
    the save is a failure, the character remains a vegetable for another 24
    hours. If the save is successful, the victim shows signs of awareness
    and self, regaining 10% of his lost memories, self-awareness and abilities
    every 12 hours, until restored to normal. Thankfully, the character
    has no recollection of being a vegetable, although he may recall especially
    vivid things as a feeling or image; i.e. the face of a person who
    showed him kindness, the face (ring, symbol, etc.) of a tormentor, a
    place that frightened him or was the scene of an atrocity or happy
    event, and so on.
  • Remove Curse
    Range: Touch or 10 feet (3 m).
    Duration: Instant removal.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Forty
    The mage can attempt to remove any type of curse using this incantation.
    To determine success, a 20-sided die is rolled (plus bonuses) to
    save vs magic. A successful save means that the curse is instantly gone.
    A failed roll to save means the curse is still in effect. Try again with a
    new invocation and another 140 P.P.E.
    The Remove Curse is a powerful magic that provides bonuses to
    save vs magic and to remove that curse. Those bonuses are: +5 to save
    when cast as a spell and +10 to save as a ritual.
  • Re-Open Gateway
    Range: Touch or 10 feet (3m).
    Duration: Instant removal.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Forty
    The mage can attempt to remove any type of curse using this incantation.
    To determine success, a 20-sided die is rolled (plus bonuses) to
    save vs magic. A successful save means that the curse is instantly gone.
    A failed roll to save means the curse is still in effect. Try again with a
    new invocation and another 140 P.P.E.
    The Remove Curse is a powerful magic that provides bonuses to
    save vs magic and to remove that curse. Those bonuses are: +5 to save
    when cast as a spell and +10 to save when cast as a ritual.
  • Re-Open Gateway
    Range: 10 feet (3m).
    Duration: One melee round per level of experience (at most).
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Eighty
    The Re-Open Gateway spell enables the sorcerer to "re-open" an already
    existing and active, or permanent, dimensional portal. This includes
    the dimensional portals found in stone pyramids, select nexus
    points like the Devil's Gate in St. Louis, and The Monster's Rift in Calgary,
    and similar. The portal will automatically open to the last dimension/
    world location accessed from that portal. Once opened, anything,
    friend, foe, or monster, can pass through the gateway from either side,
    simply by stepping into the mass of swirling blue energy. Thus, it is not
    wise to open a portal for very long, especially if one does not know exactly
    where the gateway leads. The spell caster can close the Gateway
    in an instant, at will, but may need to roll initiative to see whether or
    not he closed it before "something(s)" nasty come(s) through (G.M.
    discretion). Note that due to the nature of this spell, those passing
    through may only go one way.
  • Rift to Limbo
    Note: Also known a s the "Ambush Rift."
    Range: Must be performed at a nexus point.
    Duration : Limbo: One hour per level of the spell caster. May be set to
    automatically reopen at a specific, predetermined time, or upon the
    command of its creator. Otherwise, it opens at the end of the maximum
    duration period.
    Saving Throw: None.
    Limitation : Fixed position at a specific location on a ley line connected
    to the nexus point. Once that location is established, it can
    not be moved. Reopens at that precise location. If not reopened before
    the duration time elapses the dimensional portal will automatically
    open to disgorge those waiting inside at the end of that period.
    P.P.E. Cost: 160 (half for Shifters and Temporal Raiders).
    This spell is rather like a giant version of the TemporalRaider's
    Pocket Dimension and is used to conceal troops and/or large vehicles or
    creatures. In this case, 50 man-sized people (or equivalently fewer,
    large objects, vehicles or creatures) per level of the spell caster can enter
    a small Rift to a limbo realm of white mist and clouds. Once all
    have entered, the portal closes and those who entered seem to disappear.
    There is no trace of these troops or objects and no sensors can detect
    them because they no longer exist in our world. The creation and
    entry to the Rift must be done at a ley line nexus, but once all have entered
    and the portal is closed, it can be placed to reopen anywhere
    along any ley line connected to the nexus.
    The passage of time for those in limbo is warped, so for every one
    hour that passes in the real world outside, it only seems like 1D4 minutes
    to those waiting in limbo.
    This spell is ideal for setting up ambushes and surprise attacks.
    Spell casters love to lead an enemy into a seemingly innocent and unoccupied
    location and then reopen the Rift to Limbo with a verbal command
    to spring the trap and release the troops waiting inside. Likewise,
    a character may trick an enemy into pitching their camp, searching for
    treasure, or lingering nearby long enough for some pre-set time in
    which the Rift will open and the enemy will be overwhelmed. When
    the Rift does reopen, it is the cue for all those within the limbo realm to
    exit. Slowpokes and those reluctant or unable to leave under their own
    power are magically deposited from limbo at the nexus point. Unsuspecting
    troops and travelers can suddenly face a small army of dozens
    to hundreds where none had stood just a moment before (several Rifts
    to Limbo can be strategically placed on the same ley line). This is yet
    another reason CS troops have learned to steer clear of ley lines and
    nexus points.
    Note that when the Rift is first opened, it is comparatively small.
    However, even unwitting troops will see and recognize it for what it is
    and avoid it. The point is, enemy troops can not be tricked into entering
    the Rift and being held captive inside for hours. Nor can the portal be
    cast on top of somebody or something already occupying the precise
    nexus point. Remember, the location where the portal is supposed to reopen
    is designated at the moment of its creation and can not be changed
    or moved.
  • Rift Teleportation
    Range: Up to 100 miles (160km) per level of the spell caster.
    Duration : Roughly 1D4+4 seconds/half a melee round.
    Saving Throw: +3 to save if an unwilling participant of this magic. A
    successful save means the character is not teleported with the others
    and remains at the nexus location where the Rift was opened.
    Limitation: Requires a ley line nexus and can only teleport to another
    ley line nexus point within the range of the spell caster.
    P.P.E. Cost: 200 (half for Shifters and Temporal Raiders/Wizards).
    As many as 20 human-sized people per level of the spell caster can
    be teleported from one ley line nexus to another, allowing for entire
    platoons and companies of soldiers to be magically whisked from one
    location to another. In all cases, the spell caster must be familiar with
    the arrival point (nexus point) .
    A Rift appears at the departure point and closes in six seconds
    (roughly equal to two or three melee actions). A moment later ( I D6
    seconds), a Rift opens up at a different nexus location and those who
    entered are teleported to that point. A second later, the Rift closes as if
    it never existed. This is a one-way method of travel, requiring the spell
    to be cast coming and going. Teleportation is done without risk because
    the exact location is a known and fixed point at a j unction where two or
    more lines of magic energy converge. The only exception is if the spell
    is used during a Ley Line Storm, in which case the group will be
    teleported to some random location 3D6x 100 miles (480 to 2880km)
    away. This spell can not be used to teleport to other worlds, only on the
    planet where the ley lines are located (in this case, Rifts Earth).
  • See in Magic Darkness
    Range: Self or two others by touch; line of sight.
    Duration: One minute per level of the spell caster.
    Saving Throw: Not applicable.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Twenty-Five
    This rare and powerful (and P.P.E. costly) spell enables the recipient
    of this enchantment to see in darkness, even magic darkness, as if it
    were daylight. This spell is even effective in a Shadow Wall (no penalties
    for being blinded by the absolute darkness and can travel through
    the wall at twice the normal speed), against Cloak of Darkness (the
    character can see into the magical darkness perfectly), and against
    Shadow Beasts. (Can actually see them lurking in the shadows. The
    Shadow Beasts are not completely invisible to the character who can
    See in Magic Darkness, but they are semi-invisible; fundamentally
    functions as a Chameleon spell with shadows being what the Shadow
    Beasts can hide in if they stay motionless or move slowly). Note: Can
    not be cast on Automatons, robots or vehicles, but can be used on its
    pilot.
  • Summon & Control Animals(Ritual)
    Range: 600 feet (183m).
    Duration : Five hours per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: Standard for animals.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Twenty-Five
    A superior summoning pentacle, the invocation empowers the practitioner
    of magic to summon and control any type of animal.
    Tiny animals like frogs and mice: 40 per level of experience.
    Medium-sized animals like dogs and cats (up to 30Ibs/13.6kg) :
    Eight per level of experience.
    Large animals like horses: Six per level of experience.
    Exotic animals, including animals which are not indigenous to the
    area; i.e., animals such as a tiger, panther, or elephant are not native to
    New York city. Only one per level of experience.
    As usual, any animal which comes into the sorcerer's 600 foot (183m)
    range while in the pentagram will obey the mage unless it makes a
    successful save vs magic. Familiars are not influenced or summoned by
    this pentagram.
  • Summon Fog
    Range: Up to 10 miles (16km) away per level of experience.
    Duration : One hour per level of experience.
    Saving Throw: None.
    P.P.E.: One Hundred Forty
    The spell caster can call forth a dense fog that will impair vision and
    make travel difficult. The fog is so thick that a person can see clearly
    for four feet (1.2m) and see only blurred, shadowy figures and shapes
    for about another 10 feet (3m). Anything beyond 10 feet (3m) is totally
    obscured by fog. The fog can be made to cover a one mile (1.6km) area
    per each experience level of the spell caster.
    Safe travel is slowed to a crawl. On foot, a safe speed is 10 or less,
    and even then there is a 30% chance of tripping over something every
    30 feet (9.1m)or so. A completely safe speed is 3. Running faster than
    a speed of 10 is hazardous, with a 60% likelihood of falling every 30
    feet of travel. All sense of direction is lost. A safe speed for an automobile
    is 5mph (8kph). Up to 20 mph (32kph) can be attained, but the
    risk of running off the road is 60%, and for every half mile there is a
    40% chance of crashing into something. Traveling faster than 25 mph
    is almost certain disaster, with an 85% likelihood of running off the road and a
    70% chance of crashing. Roll for every 600 feet (183m). Air travel is
    impossible.
    Bonuses or penalties? The fog adds a +20% to prowl skills.
    Long-range combat and gunfights are extremely difficult. All such attacks,
    including ranged magic and psychic attacks, are -5 to strike and
    opponents are +2 to dodge each other's attacks. Note: The summoner
    can cancel the fog at any time or let it last out its full duration. It can be
    summoned day or night, any time of the year.
