Legend Lore (M) (F)
Divination See text PRPG-O
- Brd 4, Knowledge 7, Sor/Wiz 6 V, S, M, F
See text Personal General
Target: You
Focus: Four pieces of ivory worth 50 gp each
Materials: Incense worth 250 gp

Lets you learn tales about a person, place, or thing.

Legend lore brings to your mind legends about an important person, place, or thing. If the person or thing is at hand, or if you are in the place in question, the casting time is only 1d4 × 10 minutes. If you have only detailed information on the person, place, or thing, the casting time is 1d10 days, and the resulting lore is less complete and specific (though it often provides enough information to help you find the person, place, or thing, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time). If you know only rumors, the casting time is 2d6 weeks, and the resulting lore is vague and incomplete (though it often directs you to more detailed information, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time).

During the casting, you cannot engage in other than routine activities: eating, sleeping, and so forth. When completed, the divination brings legends (if any) about the person, place, or things to your mind. These may be legends that are still current, legends that have been forgotten, or even information that has never been generally known. If the person, place, or thing is not of legendary importance, you gain no information. As a rule of thumb, characters who are 11th level and higher are "legendary," as are the sorts of creatures they contend with, the major magic items they wield, and the places where they perform their key deeds.

Levitate
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, F
1 min./level (D) Personal or close 5 minutes
Target: You or one willing creature or one object (total weight up to 100 lbs./level)

Subject moves up and down at your direction.

Levitate allows you to move yourself, another creature, or an object up and down as you wish. A creature must be willing to be levitated, and an object must be unattended or possessed by a willing creature. You can mentally direct the recipient to move up or down as much as 20 feet each round; doing so is a move action. You cannot move the recipient horizontally, but the recipient could clamber along the face of a cliff, for example, or push against a ceiling to move laterally (generally at half its base land speed).

A levitating creature that attacks with a melee or ranged weapon finds itself increasingly unstable; the first attack has a –1 penalty on attack rolls, the second –2, and so on, to a maximum penalty of –5. A full round spent stabilizing allows the creature to begin again at –1.

Light
Evocation [Light] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Adp 0, Brd 0, Clr 0, Drd 0, Sor/Wiz 0 V, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 1 hour
Target: Object touched

Object shines like a torch.

This spell causes a touched object to glow like a torch, shedding normal light in a 20-foot radius, and increasing the light level for an additional 20 feet by one step, up to normal light (darkness becomes dim light, and dim light becomes normal light). In an area of normal or bright light, this spell has no effect. The effect is immobile, but it can be cast on a movable object.

You can only have one light spell active at any one time. If you cast this spell while another casting is still in effect, the previous casting is dispelled. If you make this spell permanent (through permanency or a similar effect), it does not count against this limit. Light can be used to counter or dispel any darkness spell of equal or lower spell level.

Lightning Bolt
Evocation [Electricity] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Reflex half - Yes Adp 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Instant 120 ft. General
Area: 120-ft. line

Electricity deals 1d6/level damage.

You release a powerful stroke of electrical energy that deals 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to each creature within its area. The bolt begins at your fingertips.

The lightning bolt sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals with a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier shatters or breaks through it, the bolt may continue beyond the barrier if the spell's range permits; otherwise, it stops at the barrier just as any other spell effect does.

Limited Wish (M)
Universal 1 standard action PRPG-O
None, see text - Yes Sor/Wiz 7 V, S, M
See text See text General
Target,: Effect, Area see text
Materials: Diamond worth 1,500 gp

Alters reality (within limits).

A limited wish lets you create nearly any type of effect. For example, a limited wish can do any of the following things.

  • Duplicate any sorcerer/wizard spell of 6th level or lower, provided the spell does not belong to one of your opposition schools.
  • Duplicate any non-sorcerer/wizard spell of 5th level or lower, provided the spell does not belong to one of your opposition schools.
  • Duplicate any sorcerer/wizard spell of 5th level or lower, even if it belongs to one of your opposition schools.
  • Duplicate any non-sorcerer/wizard spell of 4th level or lower, even if it belongs to one of your opposition schools.
  • Undo the harmful effects of many spells, such as or insanity .
  • Produce any other effect whose power level is in line with the above effects, such as a single creature automatically hitting on its next attack or taking a –7 penalty on its next saving throw.

A duplicated spell allows saving throws and spell resistance as normal, but the save DC is for a 7th-level spell. When a limited wish spell duplicates a spell with a material component that costs more than 1,000 gp, you must provide that component (in addition to the 1,500 gp diamond component for this spell).

Liveoak
Transmutation 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Drd 6 V, S
1 day/level (D) Touch 12 hours
Target: Tree touched

Oak becomes treant guardian.

This spell turns an oak tree into a protector or guardian. The spell can only be cast on a single tree at a time; while liveoak is in effect, you can't cast it again on another tree. Liveoak must be cast on a healthy, Huge oak. A triggering phrase of up to one word per caster level is placed on the targeted oak. The liveoak spell triggers the tree into animating as a treant.

If liveoak is dispelled, the tree takes root immediately wherever it happens to be. If released by you, the tree tries to return to its original location before taking root.

Locate Creature
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 4, Sor/Wiz 4 V, S, M
10 min./level Long 4 hours
Area: Circle, centered on you, with a radius of 400 ft. + 40 ft./level

Indicates direction to known creature.

This spell functions like locate object except this spell locates a known creature. You slowly turn and sense when you are facing in the direction of the creature to be located, provided it is within range. You also know in which direction the creature is moving, if any.

The spell can locate a creature of a specific kind or a specific creature known to you. It cannot find a creature of a certain type. To find a kind of creature, you must have seen such a creature up close (within 30 feet) at least once.

Running water blocks the spell. It cannot detect objects. It can be fooled by mislead, nondetection, and polymorph spells.

Locate Object
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 2, Clr 3, Sor/Wiz 2, Travel 2 V, S, F/DF
1 min./level Long 30 minutes
Area: Circle, centered on you, with a radius of 400 ft. + 40 ft./level

Senses direction toward object (specific or type).

You sense the direction of a well-known or clearly visualized object. You can search for general items, in which case you locate the nearest of its kind if more than one is within range. Attempting to find a certain item requires a specific and accurate mental image; if the image is not close enough to the actual object, the spell fails. You cannot specify a unique item unless you have observed that particular item firsthand (not through divination).

The spell is blocked by even a thin sheet of lead. Creatures cannot be found by this spell. Polymorph any object andnondetection fool it.

Longstrider
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Drd 1, Rgr 1, Travel 1 V, S, M
1 hour/level (D) Personal 24 hours
Target: You

Your speed increases by 10 ft.

This spell gives you a +10 foot enhancement bonus to your base speed. It has no effect on other modes of movement, such as burrow, climb, fly, or swim.

Lullaby
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 0 V, S
Concentration + 1 round/level (D) Medium General
Area: Living creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst

Makes subject drowsy; 5 on Perception checks, 2 on Will saves against sleep.

Any creature within the area that fails a Will save becomes drowsy and inattentive, taking a –5 penalty on Perception checks and a –2 penalty on Will saves against sleep effects while the lullaby is in effect. Lullaby lasts for as long as the caster concentrates, plus up to 1 round per caster level thereafter.
