Magician's Meal (Summoning)
The spell creates one daily ration of food and water for one person. The food is a bland but nourishing porridge, gruel, or doughy bread.  With an enhancement, the food can be made seasoned and flavorful. With two enhancements, the food can be made to order in the form of any real meat and vegetables.

Minor Summoning (Summoning)
Caster may summon a small creature with up to 5 points in attributes and no attribute higher than 3.

Minor Creation (Summoning)
Caster can summon a single small and common item.  The item must be 3 yards or less in its longest dimension, weigh less than 3 kg and cost less than 3 silver pieces.  Each enhancement increases a single property by +1.  In order for the summoned item to be of high quality, the caster must have an appropriate skill or talent and make a roll to succeed at making the item.

Minor Divination (Divination)
The caster may use this spell to ask a question about the present or the recent past in relation to an object or place the caster touches. For example, if the caster sees that a room has been recently disturbed, the spell could be used to ask “Who was in this room before I came here?” or “Who pushed over that bookshelf?” Some casters directly interrogate the inanimate objects they are curious about, such as asking a smashed table “Who broke your legs?” or asking a bloody knife “Who did you hurt?” Some variations of this spell are used to get information from the dead by questioning their corpses about things they knew or saw in life. Each casting of this spell allows the asking and answering of one main information question (who, what, where,  when, why how...) and a few clarifying follow up questions that can be answered yes or no or not clear. Each level of enhancement allows questions about the more distant past but information becomes increasingly vague. When using this spell to question a sentient spirit (such  as a dead person), the object of the spell may resist answering by making an opposed Reason roll against the caster.

Enhanced Skill (Enchantment)
Whether it’s through temporarily conjuring the the perfect tool for the job or mystically granting insight into the task at hand, this spell allows the touched target to make one skill check or make attack roll with a +2 bonus. Each level of enhancement raises the bonus by +1.

Jump (Traveling)
This spell allows the caster or a touched target to instantly move to another location within 5 yards and in line of sight of the caster. Each level of enhancement increases the range by 5 yards.

Sentry Ward (Warding)
The caster marks a small area (less than 10 yards in its longest dimension) such as a small room, a doorway or a circle on the ground. The caster will be instantly aware if anyone passes the marked boundary unless they make an opposed Instinct check against the caster’s Reason attribute to sneak through. The duration of the spell is 12 hours. Each level of enhancement can add 6 hours to the duration or add +1 to the DL of the check to successfully pass the warded boundary.

Skim (Traveling)
This spell allows the caster to run across any surface including water and vertical walls as long as they don’t stop running; the caster will fall after stopping on a surface that can’t normally support them. The spell lasts one round but can be sustained for one mana per additional round.

Endure Elements (Warding)
This spell protects the caster from the effects of normal weather for 6 hours: the caster’s clothing repels rain, dust, and mud and remains at a comfortable temperature. The caster can even lie down on muddy ground without getting wet or dirty and small insects and vermin won’t approach within one yard. The spell must be cast with one level of enhancement to endure extremes of heat or cold (such as in a sweltering summer heatwave or desert or freezing cold in the depths of winter).

Disguise (Enchantment)
The caster can alter their appearance in simple ways such as changing skin tone, facial features, and hair color. Enhancements can be used to make more substantial changes such as increasing or decreasing apparent weight or height up to 10% or changing the color and style of clothing and equipment. Copying a specific individual’s appearance also requires a Reason check (in addition to the enhancements needed to make appropriate changes) with a DL determined by the GM based on how familiar the caster is with the subject to be copied.

Empathy (Divination)
The caster becomes more aware of the inner feelings of others. While the caster can not read the thoughts of others, their true emotions and attitude are more apparent. This gives the caster a +2 bonus on all rolls in social situations like negotiations or interrogations or interpreting the gestures of someone from an unfamiliar culture without a common language. With an enhancement, the caster may also transmit their own feelings to others; the caster can’t lie in this state but it can be useful for making someone who doesn’t speak your language understand when you try to say things like “I don’t want any trouble or “Get out of here or I’ll kill you”. This spell lasts about 30 minutes but it can be sustained for 1 mana point for each additional 10 minutes.
