Spells (An Index)

"I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than to those occurring in dreams...Man...is above all the plaything of his memory."

Spells are a very special part of most Role-Playing Games. They are preferred tools, special weapons and cool powers utilized by sorcerers, wizards and other spell-casters. They are also very personalized expressions of language, thought, imagination and power. As each generation of spell-crafters perfect their art and experts develop new forms, refined variations and enhanced models, the variety and specificity of specialized and customized spells continues to grow. Over time a number of easily-available and well-known spells have formed the core and foundation of most student's spell repertoires...but always, there are those who tinker, hack and cobble together new spells from bits and pieces of the older, more established forms. So the body of available, known and trade-able spells continues to grow over time.

Here is a selection of some less well-known spells that might prove of interest. We have opted to use the rather simple format employed by Labyrinth Lord for most of these spells, as that approach lends itself to easy modification or adaptation to other systems.
