Saturday Spell-Upper Hand

UpperHandCaptioned

Talik Capbane has me on a battle spell craze for some reason. Here’s a battle spell for reducing the dexterity of a single target at point blank. For a ranged, AoE, longer lasting version using Pure Magic, check out the Clumsiness spell.

Either or both hands (if two-handed weapon):

Ros (Travel Radius)

Zo (Negativity Arc) x8

Ros (Travel Radius)

saying “on bi grai”

This is a pretty simple spell, though a little long for a battle magic spell, it suits an agile fighter like Talik. She can finish the spell in a single turn, attacking in the process. For a caster without agility, it would take 10 seconds, or 5 turns, to cast. Pure magic would be much more effective time wise and have extra options. As it is, this deals 2*(8d6) base dexterity reduction, averaging 56 for a reduction of just over 10 dexterity. That’s enough to make the average person totally useless and even adept fighters clumsy. It declines quickly, however, becoming only a -9 penalty in 2 turns, a -8 penalty 2 turns after that, and so on.

It costs 112 SP to cast, so like most battle spells it’s spell point efficiency is abysmal. There’s really no reason to use such a spell without Casting Focus and Armed Casting, like Talik has in spades.

Any spells you would like to see implemented in the Mind Weave spell system? Had your fill of battle magic usable only by the boldest of Battle Mages?  What would you like to see that’s different?  Suggest them below and we might get to them on a later Saturday.
