Full Description
Arcane Sight
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 min./level (D) Personal 30 minutes
Target: You

Magical auras become visible to you.

This spell makes your eyes glow blue and allows you to see magical auras within 120 feet of you. The effect is similar to that of a detect magic spell, but arcane sight does not require concentration and discerns aura location and power more quickly.

You know the location and power of all magical auras within your sight. An aura's power depends on a spell's functioning level or an item's caster level, as noted in the description of the detect magic spell. If the items or creatures bearing the auras are in line of sight, you can make Spellcraft skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura; DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + half caster level for a nonspell effect.)

If you concentrate on a specific creature within 120 feet of you as a standard action, you can determine whether it has any spellcasting or spell-like abilities, whether these are arcane or divine (spell-like abilities register as arcane), and the strength of the most powerful spell or spell-like ability the creature currently has available for use.

As with detect magic you can use this spell to identify the properties of magic items, but not artifacts.

Arcane sight can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

Beast Shape I
Transmutation (Polymorph) 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 min./level (D) Personal 30 minutes
Target: You

You take the form and some of the powers of a Small or Medium animal.

When you cast this spell, you can assume the form of any Small or Medium creature of the animal type. If the form you assume has any of the following abilities, you gain the listed ability: climb 30 feet, fly 30 feet (average maneuverability), swim 30 feet, darkvision 60 feet, low-light vision, and scent.

Small animal : If the form you take is that of a Small animal, you gain a +2 size bonus to your Dexterity and a +1 natural armor bonus.

Medium animal : If the form you take is that of a Medium animal, you gain a +2 size bonus to your Strength and a +2 natural armor bonus.

Blink
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
- Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 round/level (D) Personal General
Target: You

You randomly vanish and reappear for 1 round/level.

You "blink" quickly back and forth between the Material Plane and the Ethereal Plane and look as though you're winking in and out of reality at random. Blink has several effects, as follows.

Physical attacks against you have a 50% miss chance, and the Blind-Fight feat doesn't help opponents, since you're ethereal and not merely invisible. If the attack is capable of striking ethereal creatures, the miss chance is only 20% (for concealment).

If the attacker can see invisible creatures, the miss chance is also only 20%. (For an attacker who can both see and strike ethereal creatures, there is no miss chance.) Likewise, your own attacks have a 20% miss chance, since you sometimes go ethereal just as you are about to strike.

Any individually targeted spell has a 50% chance to fail against you while you're blinking unless your attacker can target invisible, ethereal creatures. Your own spells have a 20% chance to activate just as you go ethereal, in which case they typically do not affect the Material Plane (but they might affect targets on the Ethereal Plane).

While blinking, you take only half damage from area attacks (but full damage from those that extend onto the Ethereal Plane). Although you are only partially visible, you are not considered invisible and targets retain their Dexterity bonus to AC against your attacks. You do receive a +2 bonus on attack rolls made against enemies that cannot see invisible creatures.

You take only half damage from falling, since you fall only while you are material.

While blinking, you can step through (but not see through) solid objects. For each 5 feet of solid material you walk through, there is a 50% chance that you become material. If this occurs, you are shunted off to the nearest open space and take 1d6 points of damage per 5 feet so traveled.

Since you spend about half your time on the Ethereal Plane, you can see and even attack ethereal creatures. You interact with ethereal creatures roughly the same way you interact with material ones.

An ethereal creature is invisible, incorporeal, and capable of moving in any direction, even up or down. As an incorporeal creature, you can move through solid objects, including living creatures.

An ethereal creature can see and hear the Material Plane, but everything looks gray and insubstantial. Sight and hearing on the Material Plane are limited to 60 feet.

Force effects and abjurations affect you normally. Their effects extend onto the Ethereal Plane from the Material Plane, but not vice versa. An ethereal creature can't attack material creatures, and spells you cast while ethereal affect only other ethereal things. Certain material creatures or objects have attacks or effects that work on the Ethereal Plane. Treat other ethereal creatures and objects as material.

Clairaudience/Clairvoyance
Divination (Scrying) 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F/DF
1 min./level (D) Long General
Effect: Magical sensor

Hear or see at a distance for 1 min./level.

Clairaudience/clairvoyance creates an invisible magical sensor at a specific location that enables you to hear or see (your choice) almost as if you were there. You don't need line of sight or line of effect, but the locale must be known—a place familiar to you, or an obvious one. Once you have selected the locale, the sensor doesn't move, but you can rotate it in all directions to view the area as desired. Unlike other scrying spells, this spell does not allow magically or supernaturally enhanced senses to work through it. If the chosen locale is magically dark, you see nothing. If it is naturally pitch black, you can see in a 10-foot radius around the center of the spell's effect. Clairaudience/clairvoyance functions only on the plane of existence you are currently occupying.

Daylight
Evocation [Light] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Adp 3, Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
10 min./level (D) Touch 4 hours
Target: Object touched

60-ft. radius of bright light.

You touch an object when you cast this spell, causing the object to shed bright light in a 60-foot radius. This illumination increases the light level for an additional 60 feet by one step (darkness becomes dim light, dim light becomes normal light, and normal light becomes bright light). Creatures that take penalties in bright light take them while within the 60-foot radius of this magical light. Despite its name, this spell is not the equivalent of daylight for the purposes of creatures that are damaged or destroyed by such light.

If daylight is cast on a small object that is then placed inside or under a light-proof covering, the spell's effects are blocked until the covering is removed.

Daylight brought into an area of magical darkness (or vice versa) is temporarily negated, so that the otherwise prevailing light conditions exist in the overlapping areas of effect.

Daylight counters or dispels any darkness spell of equal or lower level, such as darkness.

Deep Slumber
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 round PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 min./level Close General
Area: One or more living creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst

Puts 10 HD of creatures to sleep.

This spell functions like sleep except that it affects 10 HD of targets.

Dispel Magic
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Clr 3, Drd 4, Magic 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Instant Medium General
Target or Area: One spellcaster, creature, or object

Cancels one magical spell or effect.

You can use dispel magic to end one ongoing spell that has been cast on a creature or object, to temporarily suppress the magical abilities of a magic item, or to counter another spellcaster's spell. A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Some spells, as detailed in their descriptions, can't be defeated by dispel magic . Dispel magic can dispel (but not counter) spell-like effects just as it does spells. The effect of a spell with an instantaneous duration can't be dispelled, because the magical effect is already over before the dispel magic can take effect.

You choose to use dispel magic in one of two ways: a targeted dispel or a counterspell.

Targeted Dispel : One object, creature, or spell is the target of the dispel magic spell. You make one dispel check (1d20 + your caster level) and compare that to the spell with highest caster level (DC = 11 + the spell's caster level). If successful, that spell ends. If not, compare the same result to the spell with the next highest caster level. Repeat this process until you have dispelled one spell affecting the target, or you have failed to dispel every spell.

For example, a 7th-level caster casts dispel magic, targeting a creature affected by stoneskin (caster level 12th) and fly (caster level 6th). The caster level check results in a 19. This check is not high enough to end the stoneskin (which would have required a 23 or higher), but it is high enough to end the fly (which only required a 17). Had the dispel check resulted in a 23 or higher, the stoneskin would have been dispelled, leaving the fly intact. Had the dispel check been a 16 or less, no spells would have been affected.

You can also use a targeted dispel to specifically end one spell affecting the target or one spell affecting an area (such as a wall of fire ). You must name the specific spell effect to be targeted in this way. If your caster level check is equal to or higher than the DC of that spell, it ends. No other spells or effects on the target are dispelled if your check is not high enough to end the targeted effect.

If you target an object or creature that is the effect of an ongoing spell (such as a monster summoned by summon monster ), you make a dispel check to end the spell that conjured the object or creature.

If the object that you target is a magic item, you make a dispel check against the item's caster level (DC = 11 + the item's caster level). If you succeed, all the item's magical properties are suppressed for 1d4 rounds, after which the item recovers its magical properties. A suppressed item becomes nonmagical for the duration of the effect. An interdimensional opening (such as a bag of holding ) is temporarily closed. A magic item's physical properties are unchanged: A suppressed magic sword is still a sword (a masterwork sword, in fact). Artifacts and deities are unaffected by mortal magic such as this.

You automatically succeed on your dispel check against any spell that you cast yourself.

Counterspell : When dispel magic is used in this way, the spell targets a spellcaster and is cast as a counterspell. Unlike a true counterspell, however, dispel magic may not work; you must make a dispel check to counter the other spellcaster's spell.

Displacement
Illusion (Glamer) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, M
1 round/level (D) Touch General
Target: Creature touched

Attacks miss subject 50% of the time.

The subject of this spell appears to be about 2 feet away from its true location. The creature benefits from a 50% miss chance as if it had total concealment. Unlike actual total concealment, displacement does not prevent enemies from targeting the creature normally. True seeing reveals its true location and negates the miss chance.

Explosive Runes
Abjuration [Force] 1 standard action PRPG-O
See text - Yes Rune 4, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Permanent until discharged (D) Touch 24 hours
Target: One touched object weighing no more than 10 lbs.

Deals 6d6 damage when read.

You trace mystic runes upon a book, map, scroll, or similar object bearing written information. The explosive runes detonate when read, dealing 6d6 points of force damage. Anyone next to the explosive runes (close enough to read them) takes the full damage with no saving throw; any other creature within 10 feet of the explosive runes is entitled to a Reflex save for half damage. The object on which the explosive runes were written also takes full damage (no saving throw).

You and any characters you specifically instruct can read the protected writing without triggering the explosive runes. Likewise, you can remove the explosive runes whenever desired. Another creature can remove them with a successful dispel magic or erase spell, but attempting to dispel or erase the explosive runes and failing to do so triggers the explosion.

Magic traps such as explosive runes are hard to detect and disable. A character with the trapfinding class feature (only) can use Disable Device to thwart explosive runes . The DC to find magic traps using Perception and to disable them is 25 + spell level, or 28 for explosive runes .

Fireball
Evocation [Fire] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Reflex half - Yes Fire 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Instant Long General
Area: 20-ft.-radius spread

1d6 damage per level, 20-ft. radius.

A fireball spell generates a searing explosion of flame that detonates with a low roar and deals 1d6 points of fire damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to every creature within the area. Unattended objects also take this damage. The explosion creates almost no pressure.

You point your finger and determine the range (distance and height) at which the fireball is to burst. A glowing, pea-sized bead streaks from the pointing digit and, unless it impacts upon a material body or solid barrier prior to attaining the prescribed range, blossoms into the fireball at that point. An early impact results in an early detonation. If you attempt to send the bead through a narrow passage, such as through an arrow slit, you must "hit" the opening with a ranged touch attack, or else the bead strikes the barrier and detonates prematurely.

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

Flame Arrow
Transmutation [Fire] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
10 min./level Close General
Target: Fifty projectiles, all of which must be together at the time of casting

Arrows deal +1d6 fire damage.

This spell allows you to turn ammunition (such as arrows, crossbow bolts, shuriken, and sling stones) into fiery projectiles. Each piece of ammunition deals an extra 1d6 points of fire damage to any target it hits. A flaming projectile can easily ignite a flammable object or structure, but it won't ignite a creature it strikes.

Fly
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Sor/Wiz 3, Travel 3 V, S, F
1 min./level Touch 5 minutes
Target: Creature touched

Subject flies at speed of 60 ft.

You create a slightly concave, circular plane of force that follows you about and carries loads for you. The disk is 3 feet in diameter and 1 inch deep at its center. It can hold 100 pounds of weight per caster level. If used to transport a liquid, its capacity is 2 gallons. The disk floats approximately 3 feet above the ground at all times and remains level. It floats along horizontally within spell range and will accompany you at a rate of no more than your normal speed each round. If not otherwise directed, it maintains a constant interval of 5 feet between itself and you. The disk winks out of existence when the spell duration expires. The disk also winks out if you move beyond its range or try to take the disk more than 3 feet away from the surface beneath it. When the disk winks out, whatever it was supporting falls to the surface beneath it.

The subject can fly at a speed of 60 feet (or 40 feet if it wears medium or heavy armor, or if it carries a medium or heavy load). It can ascend at half speed and descend at double speed, and its maneuverability is good. Using a fly spell requires only as much concentration as walking, so the subject can attack or cast spells normally. The subject of a fly spell can charge but not run, and it cannot carry aloft more weight than its maximum load, plus any armor it wears. The subject gains a bonus on Fly skill checks equal to 1/2 your caster level.

Should the spell duration expire while the subject is still aloft, the magic fails slowly. The subject floats downward 60 feet per round for 1d6 rounds. If it reaches the ground in that amount of time, it lands safely. If not, it falls the rest of the distance, taking 1d6 points of damage per 10 feet of fall. Since dispelling a spell effectively ends it, the subject also descends safely in this way if the fly spell is dispelled, but not if it is negated by an antimagic field .

Gaseous Form
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Air 3, Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 S, M/DF
2 min./level (D) Touch 5 minutes
Target: Willing corporeal creature touched

Subject becomes insubstantial and can fly slowly.

The subject and all its gear become insubstantial, misty, and translucent. Its material armor (including natural armor) becomes worthless, though its size, Dexterity, deflection bonuses, and armor bonuses from force effects still apply. The subject gains DR 10/magic and becomes immune to poison, sneak attacks, and critical hits. It can't attack or cast spells with verbal, somatic, material, or focus components while in gaseous form. This does not rule out the use of certain spells that the subject may have prepared using the feats Silent Spell, Still Spell, and Eschew Materials. The subject also loses supernatural abilities while in gaseous form. If it has a touch spell ready to use, that spell is discharged harmlessly when the gaseous form spell takes effect.

A gaseous creature can't run, but it can fly at a speed of 10 feet and automatically succeeds on all Fly skill checks. It can pass through small holes or narrow openings, even mere cracks, with all it was wearing or holding in its hands, as long as the spell persists. The creature is subject to the effects of wind, and it can't enter water or other liquid. It also can't manipulate objects or activate items, even those carried along with its gaseous form. Continuously active items remain active, though in some cases their effects may be moot.

Gentle Repose
Necromancy 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (object) - Yes (object) Clr 2, Repose 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 day/level Touch General
Target: Corpse touched

Preserves one corpse.

You preserve the remains of a dead creature so that they do not decay. Doing so effectively extends the time limit on raising that creature from the dead (see raise dead ). Days spent under the influence of this spell don't count against the time limit. Additionally, this spell makes transporting a slain (and thus decaying) comrade less unpleasant.

The spell also works on severed body parts and the like.

Halt Undead
Necromancy 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (see text) - Yes Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Medium General
Targets: Up to three undead creatures, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

Immobilizes undead for 1 round/level.

This spell renders as many as three undead creatures immobile. A nonintelligent undead creature gets no saving throw; an intelligent undead creature does. If the spell is successful, it renders the undead creature immobile for the duration of the spell (similar to the effect of hold person on a living creature). The effect is broken if the halted creatures are attacked or take damage.

Haste
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Close General
Targets: One creature/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

One creature/level moves faster, receives +1 on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves.

The transmuted creatures move and act more quickly than normal. This extra speed has several effects.

When making a full attack action, a hasted creature may make one extra attack with any weapon he is holding. The attack is made using the creature's full base attack bonus, plus any modifiers appropriate to the situation. (This effect is not cumulative with similar effects, such as that provided by a speed weapon, nor does it actually grant an extra action, so you can't use it to cast a second spell or otherwise take an extra action in the round.)

A hasted creature gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls and a +1 dodge bonus to AC and Reflex saves. Any condition that makes you lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes you lose dodge bonuses.

All of the hasted creature's modes of movement (including land movement, burrow, climb, fly, and swim) increase by 30 feet, to a maximum of twice the subject's normal speed using that form of movement. This increase counts as an enhancement bonus, and it affects the creature's jumping distance as normal for increased speed. Multiple haste effects don't stack. Haste dispels and counters slow

Heroism
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Brd 2, Charm 4, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
10 min./level Touch 1 hour
Target: Creature touched

Gives +2 on attack rolls, saves, skill checks.

This spell imbues a single creature with great bravery and morale in battle. The target gains a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls, saves, and skill checks.

Hold Person
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Brd 2, Clr 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F/DF
1 round/level (D); see text Medium General
Target: One humanoid creature

Paralyzes one humanoid for 1 round/level.

The subject becomes paralyzed and freezes in place. It is aware and breathes normally but cannot take any actions, even speech. Each round on its turn, the subject may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. This is a full-round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. A winged creature who is paralyzed cannot flap its wings and falls. A swimmer can't swim and may drown.

Illusory Script (M)
Illusion (Phantasm) [Mind-affecting] 1 minute per page PRPG-O
Will negates; see text - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
One day/level (D) Touch General
Target: One touched object weighing no more than 10 lbs.
Materials: Lead-based ink worth 50 gp

Only select creatures can read text.

You write instructions or other information on parchment, paper, or any suitable writing material. The illusory script appears to be some form of foreign or magical writing. Only the person (or people) designated by you at the time of the casting can read the writing; it's unintelligible to any other character.

Any unauthorized creature attempting to read the script triggers a potent illusory effect and must make a saving throw. A successful saving throw means the creature can look away with only a mild sense of disorientation. Failure means the creature is subject to a suggestion implanted in the script by you at the time the illusory script spell was cast. The suggestion lasts only 30 minutes. Typical suggestions include "Close the book and leave," "Forget the existence of this note," and so forth. If successfully dispelled by dispel magic the illusory script and its secret message disappear. The hidden message can be read by a combination of the true seeing spell with the read magic or comprehend languages spell.

Invisibility Sphere
Illusion (Glamer) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) or Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless) or yes (harmless, object) Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 min./level (D) Personal or touch General
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation around the creature

Makes everyone within 10 ft. invisible.

This spell functions like invisibility except that this spell confers invisibility upon all creatures within 10 feet of the recipient at the time the spell is cast. The center of the effect is mobile with the recipient.

Those affected by this spell can see each other and themselves as if unaffected by the spell. Any affected creature moving out of the area becomes visible, but creatures moving into the area after the spell is cast do not become invisible. Affected creatures (other than the recipient) who attack negate the invisibility only for themselves. If the spell recipient attacks, the invisibility sphere ends.

Keen Edge
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless, object) Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
10 min./level Close 1 hour
Targets: One weapon or 50 projectiles, all of which must be together at the time of casting

Doubles normal weapon's threat range.

This spell makes a weapon magically keen, improving its ability to deal telling blows. This transmutation doubles the threat range of the weapon. A threat range of 20 becomes 19–20, a threat range of 19–20 becomes 17–20, and a threat range of 18–20 becomes 15–20. The spell can be cast only on piercing or slashing weapons. If cast on arrows or crossbow bolts, the keen edge on a particular projectile ends after one use, whether or not the missile strikes its intended target. Treat shuriken as arrows, rather than as thrown weapons, for the purpose of this spell.

Multiple effects that increase a weapon's threat range (such as the keen special weapon property and the Improved Critical feat) don't stack. You can't cast this spell on a natural weapon, such as a claw.

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.

Magic Circle against Chaos
Abjuration [Lawful] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - No; see text Clr 3, Law 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 4 hours
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation from touched creature

As protection spells, but 10-ft. radius and 10 min./level.

This spell functions like magic circle against evilexcept that it is similar to protection from chaos instead of protection from evil, and it can imprison a nonlawful called creature.

Magic Circle against Evil
Abjuration [Good] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - No; see text Clr 3, Good 3, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 4 hours
Area: 10-ft.-radius emanation from touched creature

As protection from chaos, but 10-ft. radius and 10 min./level.

All creatures within the area gain the effects of a protection from evil spell, and evil summoned creatures cannot enter the area either. Creatures in the area, or who later enter the area, receive only one attempt to suppress effects that are controlling them. If successful, such effects are suppressed as long as they remain in the area. Creatures that leave the area and come back are not protected. You must overcome a creature's spell resistance in order to keep it at bay (as in the third function of protection from evil ), but the deflection and resistance bonuses and the protection from mental control apply regardless of enemies' spell resistance.

This spell has an alternative version that you may choose when casting it. A magic circle against evil can be focused inward rather than outward. When focused inward, the spell binds a nongood called creature (such as those called by the lesser planar binding and greater planar binding spells) for a maximum of 24 hours per caster level, provided that you cast the spell that calls the creature within 1 round of casting the magic circle . The creature cannot cross the circle's boundaries. If a creature too large to fit into the spell's area is the subject of the spell, the spell acts as a normal protection from evil spell for that creature only.

A magic circle leaves much to be desired as a trap. If the circle of powdered silver laid down in the process of spellcasting is broken, the effect immediately ends. The trapped creature can do nothing that disturbs the circle, directly or indirectly, but other creatures can. If the called creature has spell resistance, it can test the trap once a day. If you fail to overcome its spell resistance, the creature breaks free, destroying the circle. A creature capable of any form of dimensional travel (astral projection and similar abilities) can simply leave the circle through such means. You can prevent the creature's extradimensional escape by casting a dimensional anchor spell on it, but you must cast the spell before the creature acts. If you are successful, the anchor effect lasts as long as the magic circle does. The creature cannot reach across the magic circle, but its ranged attacks (ranged weapons, spells, magical abilities, and the like) can. The creature can attack any target it can reach with its ranged attacks except for the circle itself.

You can add a special diagram (a two-dimensional bounded figure with no gaps along its circumference, augmented with various magical sigils) to make the magic circle more secure. Drawing the diagram by hand takes 10 minutes and requires a DC 20 Spellcraft check. You do not know the result of this check. If the check fails, the diagram is ineffective. You can take 10 when drawing the diagram if you are under no particular time pressure to complete the task. This task also takes 10 full minutes. If time is no factor at all, and you devote 3 hours and 20 minutes to the task, you can take 20.

A successful diagram allows you to cast a dimensional anchor spell on the magic circle during the round before casting any summoning spell. The anchor holds any called creatures in the magic circle for 24 hours per caster level. A creature cannot use its spell resistance against a magic circle prepared with a diagram, and none of its abilities or attacks can cross the diagram. If the creature tries a Charisma check to break free of the trap (see the lesser planar binding spell), the DC increases by 5. The creature is immediately released if anything disturbs the diagram—even a straw laid across it. The creature itself cannot disturb the diagram either directly or indirectly, as noted above.

This spell is not cumulative with protection from evil and vice versa.

Magic Circle against Good

Greater Magic Weapon
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless, object) Clr 4, Pal 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 hour/level Close 6 hours
Target: One weapon or 50 projectiles (all of which must be together at the time of casting)

Weapon gains +1 bonus/four levels (max +5).

Magic weapon gives a weapon a +1 enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls. An enhancement bonus does not stack with a masterwork weapon's +1 bonus on attack rolls.

You can't cast this spell on a natural weapon, such as an unarmed strike (instead, see magic fang). A monk's unarmed strike is considered a weapon, and thus it can be enhanced by this spell.

This spell functions like magic weaponexcept that it gives a weapon an enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls of +1 per four caster levels (maximum +5). This bonus does not allow a weapon to bypass damage reduction aside from magic.

Alternatively, you can affect as many as 50 arrows, bolts, or bullets. The projectiles must be of the same kind, and they have to be together (in the same quiver or other container). Projectiles, but not thrown weapons, lose their transmutation after they are used. Treat shuriken as projectiles, rather than as thrown weapons, for the purpose of this spell.

Major Image
Illusion (Figment) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will disbelief (if interacted with) - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F
Concentration + 3 rounds Long General
Effect: Visual figment that cannot extend beyond four 10-ft. cubes + one 10-ft. cube/level (S)

As silent image, plus sound, smell, and thermal effects.

This spell functions like silent image except that sound, smell, and thermal illusions are included in the spell effect. While concentrating, you can move the image within the range.

The image disappears when struck by an opponent unless you cause the illusion to react appropriately.

Nondetection (M)
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless, object) - Yes (harmless, object) Rgr 4, Sor/Wiz 3, Trickery 3 V, S, M
1 hour/level Touch 6 hours
Target: Creature or object touched
Materials: Diamond dust worth 50 gp

Hides subject from divination, scrying.

The warded creature or object becomes difficult to detect by divination spells such as clairaudience/clairvoyance and detect spells. Nondetection also prevents location by such magic items as crystal ball s. If a divination is attempted against the warded creature or item, the caster of the divination must succeed on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against a DC of 11 + the caster level of the spellcaster who cast nondetection . If you cast nondetection on yourself or on an item currently in your possession, the DC is 15 + your caster level.

If cast on a creature, nondetection wards the creature's gear as well as the creature itself.

Phantom Steed
Conjuration (Creation) 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 hour/level (D) 0 ft. 6 hours
Effect: One quasi-real, horselike creature

Magic horse appears for 1 hour/level.

You conjure a Large, quasi-real, horselike creature (the exact coloration can be customized as you wish). It can be ridden only by you or by the one person for whom you specifically created the mount. A phantom steed has a black head and body, gray mane and tail, and smoke-colored, insubstantial hooves that make no sound. It has what seems to be a saddle, bit, and bridle. It does not fight, but animals shun it and refuse to attack it.

The mount is AC 18 (–1 size, +4 natural armor, +5 Dex) and 7 hit points + 1 hit point per caster level. If it loses all its hit points, the phantom steed disappears. A phantom steed has a speed of 20 feet per two caster levels, to a maximum of 100 feet at 10th level. It can bear its rider's weight plus up to 10 pounds per caster level.

These mounts gain certain powers according to caster level. A mount's abilities include those of mounts of lower caster levels.

8th Level : The mount can ride over sandy, muddy, or even swampy ground without difficulty or decrease in speed.

10th Level : The mount can use water walk at will (as the spell, no action required to activate this ability).

12th Level : The mount can use air walk at will (as the spell, no action required to activate this ability) for up to 1 round at a time, after which it falls to the ground.

14th Level : The mount can fly at its speed with a bonus on Fly skill checks equal to your caster level.

Protection from Energy
Abjuration 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Clr 3, Drd 3, Luck 3, Protection 3, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, DF
10 min./level or until discharged Touch 1 hour
Target: Creature touched

Absorbs 12 points/level of damage from one kind of energy.

Protection from energy grants temporary immunity to the type of energy you specify when you cast it (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). When the spell absorbs 12 points per caster level of energy damage (to a maximum of 120 points at 10th level), it is discharged.

Protection from energy overlaps (and does not stack with) resist energy If a character is warded by protection from energy and resist energy the protection spell absorbs damage until its power is exhausted.

Rage
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes Brd 2, Destruction 3, Madness 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Concentration + 1 round/level (D) Medium 5 minutes
Targets: One willing living creature per three levels, no two of which may be more than 30 ft. apart

Gives +2 to Str and Con, +1 on Will saves, 2 to AC.

Each affected creature gains a +2 morale bonus to Strength and Constitution, a +1 morale bonus on Will saves, and a –2 penalty to AC. The effect is otherwise identical with a barbarian's rage except that the subjects aren't fatigued at the end of the rage.

Ray of Exhaustion
Necromancy 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude partial; see text - Yes Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 min./level Close General
Effect: Ray

Ray makes subject exhausted.

A black ray projects from your pointing finger. You must succeed on a ranged touch attack with the ray to strike a target.

The subject is immediately exhausted for the spell's duration. A successful Fortitude save means the creature is only fatigued.

A character that is already fatigued instead becomes exhausted.

This spell has no effect on a creature that is already exhausted. Unlike normal exhaustion or fatigue, the effect ends as soon as the spell's duration expires.

Secret Page
Transmutation 10 minutes PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Rune 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Permanent Touch 12 hours
Target: Page touched, up to 3 sq. ft. in size

Changes one page to hide its real content.

Secret page alters the contents of a page so that it appears to be something entirely different. The text of a spell can be changed to show another spell of equal or lower level known by the caster. This spell cannot be used to change a spell contained on a scroll, but it can be used to hide a scroll. Explosive runes or sepia snake sigil can be cast upon the secret page.

A comprehend languages spell alone cannot reveal a secret page 's contents. You are able to reveal the original contents by speaking a special word. You can then peruse the actual page and return it to its secret page form at will. You can also remove the spell by double repetition of the special word. A detect magic spell reveals dim magic on the page in question but does not reveal its true contents. True seeing reveals the presence of the hidden material but does not reveal the contents unless cast in combination with comprehend languages A secret page spell can be dispelled, and the hidden writings can be destroyed by means of an erase spell.

Sepia Snake Sigil (M)
Conjuration (Creation) [Force] 10 minutes PRPG-O
Reflex negates - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
Permanent or until discharged; until released or 1d4 days + 1 day/level; see text Touch 24 hours
Target: One touched book or written work
Materials: Powdered amber worth 500 gp and a snake scale

Creates text symbol that immobilizes reader.

You cause a small symbol to appear in the text of a written work. The text containing the symbol must be at least 25 words long. When anyone reads the text containing the symbol, the sepia snake sigil springs into being, transforming into a large sepia serpent that strikes at the reader, provided there is line of effect between the symbol and the reader.

Simply seeing the enspelled text is not sufficient to trigger the spell; the subject must deliberately read it. The target is entitled to a save to evade the snake's strike. If it succeeds, the sepia snake dissipates in a flash of brown light accompanied by a puff of dun-colored smoke and a loud noise. If the target fails its save, it is engulfed in a shimmering amber field of force and immobilized until released, either at your command or when 1d4 days + 1 day per caster level have elapsed.

While trapped in the amber field of force, the subject does not age, breathe, grow hungry, sleep, or regain spells. It is preserved in a state of suspended animation, unaware of its surroundings. It can be damaged by outside forces (and perhaps even killed), since the field provides no protection against physical injury. However, a dying subject does not lose hit points or become stable until the spell ends.

The hidden sigil cannot be detected by normal observation, and detect magic reveals only that the entire text is magical.

A dispel magic can remove the sigil. An erase spell destroys the entire page of text.

Sepia snake sigil can be cast in combination with other spells that hide or garble text, such as secret page

Shrink Item
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (object) - Yes (object) Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
1 day/level; see text Touch 24 hours
Target: One touched object of up to 2 cu. ft./level

Object shrinks to one-sixteenth size.

You are able to shrink one nonmagical item (if it is within the size limit) to 1/16 of its normal size in each dimension (to about 1/4,000 the original volume and mass). This change effectively reduces the object's size by four categories. Optionally, you can also change its now shrunken composition to a clothlike one. Objects changed by a shrink item spell can be returned to normal composition and size merely by tossing them onto any solid surface or by a word of command from the original caster. Even a burning fire and its fuel can be shrunk by this spell. Restoring the shrunken object to its normal size and composition ends the spell.

Shrink item can be made permanent with a permanency spell, in which case the affected object can be shrunk and expanded an indefinite number of times, but only by the original caster.

Sleet Storm
Conjuration (Creation) [Cold] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Drd 3, Sor/Wiz 3, Weather 4 V, S, M/DF
1 round/level Long General
Area: Cylinder (40-ft. radius, 20 ft. high)

Hampers vision and movement.

Driving sleet blocks all sight (even darkvision) within it and causes the ground in the area to be icy. A creature can walk within or through the area of sleet at half normal speed with a DC 10 Acrobatics check. Failure means it can't move in that round, while failure by 5 or more means it falls (see the Acrobatics skill for details).

The sleet extinguishes torches and small fires.

Slow
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Close General
Targets: One creature/level, no two of which can be more than 30 ft. apart

One subject/level takes only one action/round, 1 to AC, Reflex saves, and attack rolls.

An affected creature moves and attacks at a drastically slowed rate. Creatures affected by this spell are staggered and can take only a single move action or standard action each turn, but not both (nor may it take full-round actions). Additionally, it takes a –1 penalty on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves. A slowed creature moves at half its normal speed (round down to the next 5-foot increment), which affects the creature's jumping distance as normal for decreased speed.

Multiple slow effects don't stack. Slow counters and dispels haste .

Stinking Cloud
Conjuration (Creation) 1 standard action PRPG-O
Fortitude negates; see text - No Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
1 round/level Medium General
Effect: Cloud spreads in 20-ft. radius, 20 ft. high

Nauseating vapors, 1 round/level.

Stinking cloud creates a bank of fog like that created by fog cloud, except that the vapors are nauseating. Living creatures in the cloud become nauseated. This condition lasts as long as the creature is in the cloud and for 1d4+1 rounds after it leaves. (Roll separately for each nauseated character.) Any creature that succeeds on its save but remains in the cloud must continue to save each round on your turn.

Stinking cloud can be made permanent with a permanency spell. A permanent stinking cloud dispersed by wind reforms in 10 minutes.

Suggestion
Enchantment (Compulsion) [Language-dependent] [Mind-affecting] 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates - Yes Brd 2, Charm 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, M
1 hour/level or until completed Close 30 minutes
Target: One living creature

Compels subject to follow stated course of action.

You influence the actions of the target creature by suggesting a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two). The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the activity sound reasonable. Asking the creature to do some obviously harmful act automatically negates the effect of the spell.

The suggested course of activity can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do. You can instead specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. If the condition is not met before the spell duration expires, the activity is not performed.

A very reasonable suggestion causes the save to be made with a penalty (such as –1 or –2).

Summon Monster III
Conjuration (Summoning) 1 round PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Clr 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, F/DF

* This creature is summoned with the celestial template if you are good, or the fiendish template if you are evil; you may choose either if you are neutral.

This spell summons an extraplanar creature (typically an outsider, elemental, or magical beast native to another plane). It appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability. If you can communicate with the creature, you can direct it not to attack, to attack particular enemies, or to perform other actions. The spell conjures one of the creatures from the 1st Level list on Table 10–1. You choose which kind of creature to summon, and you can choose a different one each time you cast the spell.

A summoned monster cannot summon or otherwise conjure another creature, nor can it use any teleportation or planar travel abilities. Creatures cannot be summoned into an environment that cannot support them. Creatures summoned using this spell cannot use spells or spell-like abilities that duplicate spells with expensive material components (such as wish ).

When you use a summoning spell to summon a creature with an alignment or elemental subtype, it is a spell of that type. Creatures on Table 10–1 marked with an "*" are summoned with the celestial template, if you are good, and the fiendish template, if you are evil. If you are neutral, you may choose which template to apply to the creature. Creatures marked with an "*" always have an alignment that matches yours, regardless of their usual alignment. Summoning these creatures makes the summoning spell's type match your alignment.

This spell functions like summon monster I except that you can summon one creature from the 2nd-level list or 1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 1st-level list.

This spell functions like summon monster I except that you can summon one creature from the 3rd-level list, 1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 2nd-level list, or 1d4+1 creatures of the same kind from the 1st-level list.

Tiny Hut
Evocation [Force] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - No Brd 3, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M
2 hours/level (D) 20 ft. 12 hours
Effect: 20-ft.-radius sphere centered on your location

Creates shelter for 10 creatures.

You create an unmoving, opaque sphere of force of any color you desire around yourself. Half the sphere projects above the ground, and the lower hemisphere passes through the ground. As many as nine other Medium creatures can fit into the field with you; they can freely pass into and out of the hut without harming it. However, if you remove yourself from the hut, the spell ends.

The temperature inside the hut is 70° F if the exterior temperature is between 0° and 100° F. An exterior temperature below 0° or above 100° lowers or raises the interior temperature on a 1-degree-for-1 basis. The hut also provides protection against the elements, such as rain, dust, and sandstorms. The hut withstands any wind of less than hurricane force, but a hurricane (75+ mph wind speed) or greater force destroys it.

The interior of the hut is a hemisphere. You can illuminate it dimly upon command or extinguish the light as desired. Although the force field is opaque from the outside, it is transparent from within. Missiles, weapons, and most spell effects can pass through the hut without affecting it, although the occupants cannot be seen from outside the hut (they have total concealment).

Tongues
Divination 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - No Adp 3, Brd 2, Clr 4, Sor/Wiz 3 V, M/DF
10 min./level Touch 1 hour
Target: Creature touched

Speak and understand any language.

This spell grants the creature touched the ability to speak and understand the language of any intelligent creature, whether it is a racial tongue or a regional dialect. The subject can speak only one language at a time, although it may be able to understand several languages. Tongues does not enable the subject to speak with creatures who don't speak. The subject can make itself understood as far as its voice carries. This spell does not predispose any creature addressed toward the subject in any way.

Tongues can be made permanent with a permanency spell.

Vampiric touch
Necromancy 1 standard action PRPG-O
None - Yes Sor/Wiz 3 V, S
Instant/1 hour; see text Touch General
Target: Living creature touched

Touch deals 1d6 damage per two levels; caster gains damage as temporary hp.

You must succeed on a melee touch attack. Your touch deals 1d6 points of damage per two caster levels (maximum 10d6). You gain temporary hit points equal to the damage you deal. You can't gain more than the subject's current hit points + the subject's Constitution score (which is enough to kill the subject). The temporary hit points disappear 1 hour later.

Water Breathing
Transmutation 1 standard action PRPG-O
Will negates (harmless) - Yes (harmless) Clr 3, Drd 3, Sor/Wiz 3, Water 3 V, S, M/DF
2 hours/level; see text Touch 4 hours
Target: Living creatures touched

Subjects can breathe underwater.

The transmuted creatures can breathe water freely. Divide the duration evenly among all the creatures you touch. The spell does not make creatures unable to breathe air.

Wind Wall
Evocation [Air] 1 standard action PRPG-O
None; see text - Yes Air 2, Clr 3, Drd 3, Rgr 2, Sor/Wiz 3 V, S, M/DF
1 round/level Medium General
Effect: Wall up to 10 ft./level long and 5 ft./level high (S)

Deflects arrows, smaller creatures, and gases.

An invisible vertical curtain of wind appears. It is 2 feet thick and of considerable strength. It is a roaring blast sufficient to blow away any bird smaller than an eagle, or tear papers and similar materials from unsuspecting hands. (A Reflex save allows a creature to maintain its grasp on an object.) Tiny and Small flying creatures cannot pass through the barrier. Loose materials and cloth garments fly upward when caught in a wind wall. Arrows and bolts are deflected upward and miss, while any other normal ranged weapon passing through the wall has a 30% miss chance. (A giant-thrown boulder, a siege engine projectile, and other massive ranged weapons are not affected.) Gases, most gaseous breath weapons, and creatures in gaseous form cannot pass through the wall (although it is no barrier to incorporeal creatures).

While the wall must be vertical, you can shape it in any continuous path along the ground that you like. It is possible to create cylindrical or square wind walls to enclose specific points.
