Spells to Chop Up Mountains, 30 Days of Magic

An insane spell similar to Cascade of Rocks (Ars p.155) to chop a massive segment of hillside or mountain into small usable chunks. Moving them is another matter.

Pathway Through the Mountain

Perdo Terram 40, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Part

This spell tunnels through rock and earth to create a pathway as chosen by the caster, removing up to 100,000 cubic paces of material. This area is equivalent to a pathway 3 paces high and wide, and 5 miles long.

(Base 4, +1 Touch, +1 Part, +5 size, +1 flexible shape)

Carve Mountain into Rubble

Perdo Terram 45, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Part

Cuts the rock and earth in the shape chosen by the caster, equal to 1,000,000 cubic paces into cubic foot segments, likely ruining the stability of a large area and causing significant damage. This area is equivalent to a cube 100 paces to a side, or a dome 78 paces high and 157 paces wide at the base.

(Base 4, +1 Touch, +1 Part, +6 size, +1 flexible shape)

This spell is part of the free new spells compendium for Ars Magica

  1. I like the use of rego to slice up rocks into useable shapes as well. I’d interpret a perdo spell as doing a sloppier job, making less precise shapes. But probably at a much lower level (haven’t checked the guidelines).

  2. The risk of botches for a rego spell gets interesting too – that would need a casting roll and also a finesse roll – and every roll adds risks. Pedo doesn’t have to be sloppy though.
