Animal Communications spells

An odd scenario I read in another pbp rpg game gave me the idea to write up these animal based spells for Ars Magica. Sometimes making a beast understand that you mean no harm, understanding it’s mood might be valuable.

There are two styles of spell effect, and two versions of each. The first intended for use with an Intangible Tunnel and the second with the arcane connection factored into the spell. I also chose to create the lower versions with a range of Voice, as touching animals might still be very difficult for a magus due to the negative effects of the gift. The difference in level really highlights why Intangible Tunnels are so darn powerful.
