Killing an animal, 30 Days of Magic

Lost spell from an old 4e grimoire to kill a beast, two versions reworked for 5th edition Ars Magica. I dislike how many of the core Ars spells don’t have allowances for larger creatures which means they are no use against horses and other big foes.

The Incap version at PeAn35 seems a better choice. I also modified the spell as written from size +1 animals to allow affecting large animals too, up to size +4.

Incantation of the Beast’s Ruin

Perdo Animal 35, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual

This spells inflicts an Incapacitating wound to an animal, up to size +4.

(Base 20, +2 Voice, +1 size)

Incantation of the Pack’s Ruin

Perdo Animal 40, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Group

This spells inflicts an Incapacitating wound to a group of animals, up to size +1. Designed with wolf packs in mind, this spell will kill a group of 10x size +1 animals.

(Base 20, +2 Voice, +2 Group)

Incantation of the Beast’s Demise

Perdo Animal 45, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual

This spells kill an animal of up to size +4 instantly.

(Base 30, +2 Voice, +1 size)

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