A few months ago I wrote up a spell to carve out of raw rock the projectiles which are handy for use with an Invisible Sing of Vilano spell, then found by coincidence a link recently that talked about the Romans using carved sling ammunition with sayings like “This is a Hard Nut to Crack“. That’s darn sardonic wit.
A wizard using the Invisible Sling of Vilano frequently might have a little trouble carrying and gathering the ammunition. Generally a story guide won’t care too much unless the amount of projectiles is large. Servants can do it, or the magus can walk the battlefield.
These are some niche spells for a dedicated (or perhaps lazy) magus to use along with their Vilano spells.
Sight of the Perfect Bullet
Intellego Terram 15, R: Personal, D: Concentration, T: Vision
Thus spell highlights visually to the caster any stones in their sight which are suitable for the caster’s purpose. Despite the spell name the spell will find any serviceable sized stone to match the caster’s requirements; not just sling stones.
(Base 2, +1 Concentration, +4 Vision)
Stones as Insects
Rego Terram 25, R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Group
The stone materials touched are made to float around the caster in fluctuating rotating pattern for the spells duration. Up to 1 cubic pace of materials may be affected by each casting.
(Base 3, +1 for stone, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +2 Group)
Gathering a Bullet to Hand
Rego Terram 5, R: Sight, D: Momentary, T: Individual
The targeted stone flies to the casters hand, or to a place they designate within sight.
(Base 3, +1 for stone, +1 Sight)
Gathering a Bullet by the Bagful
Rego Terram 15, R: Sight, D: Momentary, T: Group
The targeted stones flies to the casters hand, a container, or to a place they designate within sight.
(Base 3, +1 for stone, +1 Sight, +2 Group)
