Variations for disrupting magic

Cancelling spells are a great tool in a wizard’s grimoire, so much so that I think most older Magi have variations on the basic magical disruption spells. Wind of Mundane Silence serves a very specific purpose but isn’t useful when the caster only wishes to remove one spell in the room.

Breath of Mundane Silence

Perdo Vim Gen, R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual

Cancels a single spell if it is level is less than half the level of this spell + 10 + stress dice.

Then a reworking of Unraveling the Fabric of (form) (Ars Magica p.161) for the caster’s own spells. There was no direct guideline for using Perdo on the caster’s own spells, so I’ve taken a slight liberty. An Intellego Imagonem effect can allow a caster to see their own illusions, so there is a precedent.

Cancels another of the caster’s spells if it’s level is less than level of this spell + 10 + stress dice.
