Saturday Spell-Stone Wall

Gnome cuts off enemy pursuit with a wall of stone.

Gnome cuts off enemy pursuit with a wall of stone.

Stone wall is a spell concept that can be shaped to any number of applications, and with several casting approaches.  More power and time can easily be employed to make the wall bigger and advanced Ya Mastery can be used to create more complex shapes than a simple wall.  However, even a simple wall can be be positioned in any orientation or direction to achieve a variety of tasks from stopping avalanches, to bridging a gap, to closing a passage as pictured to the left.  The wall can also be variety of earthy materials.

In this case we assume a passage 4 feet wide, a wall 6 inches thick, and made of limestone (8 hardness compared to dirt hardness 1).  With the “on” power level and 13 DoP of earth, we have on average 170/8=21.25 cubic feet of limestone, enough to make the wall over 10 1/2 feet tall.

The spell would cost 152 sp.  It has 6 finger changes, 3 syllables, and 6 arcs and radii.  With no agility and 15 dexterity this is an 8 second spell for a right handed character.  This is no meager casting time, and so the spell may not be useful for mid-combat area control, unless done with much thinner walls and fewer arcs.  However, if a party has need of a bridge or has time to prepare the battle field ahead of time, this casting time can be acceptable.

Right Hand:

Ku (nature radius): earth(half)

Ya (earth arc): earth

Ya (earth arc): earth(half)

Ya (earth arc): earth

Ya (earth arc): earth(half)

Ku (physical radius): earth

Saying “on(x2), re(create), gruo(material)”

Any spells you would like to see implemented in the Mind Weave spell system?  Maybe a longer termed light spell?  Suggest them below and we might get to them on a later Saturday.
