More spells and items for a Magus with a Focus in Bronze

Continuing from the Verditius sample character, and spells for a magus who specialises in bronze; here are a few more spells. The goal is to create several moderate power spells which allow the specialty in bronze to be more widely used. When implemented many will be useful in items rather than spells to be cast.

Thematically I like Verditius who appear to have tools and foci scattered all over them, or carry a set of pristine tools, suitable for their spell casting and crafting. As such these effects have been proposed in lesser enchanted devices, which are exceptionally cheap (in terms of vis) for a Verditius to create.

Scalpel for Bronze (Lesser Enchanted Device) – A thin steel knife with a small one sided dull blade, mounted on a long thin handle.

Invested effect: Destroying Bronze (PeTe 35).

Destroy Bronze

Perdo Terram 25, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Part

This spell utterly destroys up to ten cubic feet of bronze, the amount chosen by the caster. Delicate or fine destruction may require a Finesse check.

(Base 5, +2 Voice, +1 Part, +1 size)

(+10 unlimited uses)

Bulbous Shovel Ornament (Lesser Enchanted Device) – a finger sized fat silver shovel with a small leather loop on one end for attaching to belts and equipment.

Invested effect: Change Terram to Bronze (MuTe35, effect with unlimited uses).

Rocks and Rubble of Bronze

Muto Terram 25, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Part

The Terram based material such as metals, rock, or dirt, are transformed to bronze. Up to ten cubic paces of dirt, a cubic pace of stone, or a cubic foot of metal may be affected, and is transformed into a cubic foot of material.

(Base 4, +2 Voice, +2 Sun, +1 Part) (+10 unlimited uses)

A particular use for this effect might be to change part of the ground creating a gap or hole, as the transformation will also reduce the volume of material, changing 10 cubic paces of soil to 1 cubic foot of bronze.

Bulbous Tree Ornament (Lesser Enchanted Device) – a finger sized silver bulb engraved with a tree, with a small leather loop on one end for attaching to belts and equipment.

Invested effect: Change Herbam to Bronze (MuTe35, effect with unlimited uses).

Buckets and Branches of Bronze

Muto Herbam / Terram 25, R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Part

The plant or wooden object is transformed into solid bronze. The spell affects a standard sized plant or object, or part thereof if the object is larger, appearing as up to a cubic foot of bronze. Any non-Herbam or Terram based components incur casting requisites.

(Base 4, +2 Voice, +2 Sun, +1 Part) (+10 unlimited uses)

For a Verdi magus the spell effect below is probably handy, especially if enchanted into a magical device they can conjure new casting tools if some are lost.

Amulet of Last Resort (Enchanted Device) – A small bronze globe with a precious gem hidden inside.

Invested Effect: Where did it go? (CrTeHeAn 35).

Conjure the Lost Tools to Hand

Creo Terram / Herbam / Animal 30, R: Touch D: Sun, T: Individual

This spell allows the caster to create a tool subject to their desires. The complexity allows for a single multi-material tool (cup, hammer, pick, scythe, bucket, mortar, etc) to be created.

(Base 5 to create metal, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +2 complexity in design) (+5 for 24 users per day)

Bed of Talos (Enchanted Device) – A large bronze altar with a raised lip with a forge built within it, enchanted with the following effects.

Effect: Recast to Humble Blocks (MuTe20) – activated by a simple latin phrase.

Ballistic Perfection in Bronze

Muto Terram 10, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual

This spell remolds up to a cubic foot of bronze into a specific uncomplicated shape, such as a bullet, star, cube, or sphere, according to the caster’s desire when the spell is cast.

The designer’s intent was to shape excellent projectiles, and to make stacking bronze easier.

(Base 3, +1 Touch, +2 affect metal) (+10 unlimited uses)

And also,

Effect: Gather to Bed for Punishment (ReTe50) – activated by a simple latin phrase. The Altar is not affected by the spell.

Swarm of Gathered Bronze

Rego Terram 35, R: Voice, D: Concentration, T: Group

The spell causes up to one hundred segments of bronze to float into the air and surround an object, person, or place within range. The segments slowly rotate around, moving running speed. Any single item removed a pace from the formation is no longer under the spell’s effect.

The spell is primarily a way to gather and inspect bronze in the surrounding area, but can also be used to transport it, or have it ready for other spell effects.

(Base 3, +2 Voice, +1 Concentration, +2 Group, +1 group size increase, +2 affect metal) (+10 unlimited uses, +5 Device maintains concentration)

These spells are part of the free new spells compendium for Ars Magica.
