Variations on supernatural creature might stripping spells

I couldn’t find a room based Demon’s Eternal Oblivion (Ars Magica, p.160, Perdo Vim) so here are variants mixing supernatural realms, and demonstrating scaling up for Perdo Vim spells for rooms and big structures.

Strike Against the Undesirable Faerie

Perdo Vim General, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Individual

Reduces the Faerie Might of the creature touched by (Level of this spell +5), as long as the spell penetrates each creatures magical resistance.

(Base Gen, +1 Touch)

This effect could (arguably) be learnt at PeVi1 and still inflict +6 Might damage. This also shows that there are ways to help penetrate against powerful supernatural creatures when each dice roll counts; and could also be invested in a device to gain additional penetration – particularly a weapon with an “on-strike” trigger.

Excise the Unwelcome Magical Guests

Perdo Vim General, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Room

Reduces the Magical Might of all suitable creatures inside the affected chamber by (Level of this spell -5), as long as the spell penetrates each creatures magical resistance.

(Base Gen, +1 Touch, +2 Room)

Scaling means that this spell taken at PeVi5 has no effect, however at level 10 the spell will still inflict 5 points of night and may also identify creatures affected by they spell as they react. It’s a spell that probably is only spont cast by powerful wizards.

Excise the Unwholesome Demonic Interlopers

Perdo Vim General, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Structure

Reduces the Infernal Might of all suitable creatures inside the affected structure by (Level of this spell -10), as long as the spell penetrates each creatures magical resistance.

(Base Gen, +1 Touch, +3 Structure)
