Necromancy spells, part 9

The run of new and tailored spells for Ars Magica themed for necromancy will probably cease playing though my mind soon, till then here are five more new spells. These are not directly necromantic, but were dreamed up with a necromancer in mind. Not all effects have to be about making skin and bone move unnaturally (fortunately).

Sight of the Pallbearer

Intellego Terram / Herbam 20, R: Personal, D: Concentration, T: Vision

This spell allows the caster’s vision to be unaffected by Terram and Herbam material. The caster can see through ten cubic paces of soil, a cubic pace of stone, and a few inches of wood or other Herbam material. The material appears translucent and almost completely transparent.

(Base 2, +1 Conc, +4 Vision, +1 Herbam)

Then same desire using a different method. With a level 20 version and a level 5 version, it’s an easy choice unless the Magi’s arts are particularly specialised.

Invisible Earth

Perdo Imagonem 5, R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Part

This spell renders an a volume of earth or stone invisible, allowing the what is beneath, inside, or behind the affected material to be viewed. Up to 10 cubic paces of material can be affected with each casting, and the caster can choose the shape and orientation if the affected mass.

(Base 1, +1 Touch, +1 Conc, +1 Part, +1 flexibility in shape and material)

And now some creepy spells using corpses and the dead as material, to exploit a focus in Necromancy.

Wall of Desecrated Dead

Creo Corpus 40, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Group

This spell creates a large wall-like barricade made from 100 large human bodies, which are bound around each other to form a solid obstruction. The caster can choose the position and size of the wall.

(Base 5, +2 Voice, +2 Sun, +2 Group, +1 Size)

The Danse Macabre

Rego Corpus 20, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Group

This spell gathers all the non-living human remains (equivalent mass of 10 large human bodies) from around the caster and places it at a location chosen within the spells range.

(Base 4, +2 Voice, +2 Group)

Order According to Owner

Intellego Corpus / Rego 20, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Group

This spell separates a mass of human remains so that the parts of each individual are unmixed from the other.

(Base 4, +2 Voice, +2 Group)
