Sweeping Spell Changes

Energy Damage Cantrips

Level 0 ranged touch attacks spells that do 1d3 energy damage have their damage increased to 1d6. This applies specifically to acid splash, jolt, and ray of frost.

Raise Dead/Reincarnate

All kinds of resurrection that take place more than 10 minutes after death are inherently unstable and dangerous and generally fails with horrifying consequences unless a quest to the outer planes is taken first to win the soul the right to return. The exception is for targets slain by death effects, where these spells work normally.

Shadow Evocation/Conjuration, Shades

All variants of shades, shadow evocation, and shadow conjuration can emulate any spell up to the level of the spell cast (not one level lower, as all these spells normally do).

Summon Monster / Nature's Ally

A creaure of Intelligence 3 or less summoned by these spells can be controlled using Handle Animal. They know the attack trick taken twice, the guard trick, and the down trick. The caster can handle a summoned creature as a free action, or push it as a move action, and can use concentration check bonus in place of Handle Animal skill bonus. Also, spontaneous casters can undercast summon spells.

New and Modified Spells

Alter Race

Publisher: Purple Duck Games

Transmutation (polymorph)
Level alchemist 1, bard 0, medium 0, mesmerist 0, psychic 0, shaman 0, sorcerer/wizard 0, witch 0
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, F (lock of hair)
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 minute/level (D)

This spell only affects you if you are a humanoid. You can assume the shape of a member of the humanoid race whose hair is used as a focus component of the spell. The form assumed must be of your own size category. This shape shares your general appearance and you are easily recognized by anyone who knows you. You ignore the Disguise modifier for disguising yourself as a different race, but otherwise gain no bonus to Disguise. You do not gain the racial abilities of the assumed race.

This spell fails and ends if you take any damage or fail a saving throw. Saving throws you voluntarily fail do not cause the spell to end.

Ancestral Advice

Divination
Level bard 3, cleric/oracle 3, medium 2, occultist 3, ranger 3, spiritualist 3
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 minute/level (D), see text

You call upon the skill and inspiration of an ancestor. For the duration of the spell, you are treated as if you possessed any one feat for which you meet the prerequisites, chosen when you cast this spell. If you fail a Will saving throw while the spell lasts, you can dismiss this spell as an immediate action to reroll that saving throw.

Armor

Publisher: Trailseeker
Transmutation
Level: alchemist 1, bard 1, occultist 1, sorcerer/wizard 1
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Components: V, S
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels
Target: one creature wearing clothes
Duration: 1 hour/level
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: yes (harmless)

Visibly changes and reinforces the target's clothes, giving them the protective value of armor. This gives the wearer an armor bonus of +4 with no added weight, armor check penalty, or spell failure chance. If the creature spends a standard action to take off the armor, the spell ends and the clothes return to normal.

Attract Attention

Enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting]
Level: bard 0, cleric/oracle 0, inquisitor 0, magus 0, mesmerist 0, occultist 0, psychic 0
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Components: V, S
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: one creature
Duration: 1 round
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: yes

The target's attention is riveted on the caster. Any attack or skill check the target makes against creatures other than the caster suffers a -2 penalty or has its save DC reduced by 1.

Benign Dispel

Publisher: Trailseeker.

Abjuration
Level: bard 0, cleric/oracle 0, druid 0, inquisitor 0, magus 0, medium 0, mesmerist 0, occultist 0, psychic 0, shaman 0, spiritualist 0, ranger 1, paladin 1, sorcerer/wizard 0, summoner 0, witch 0
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Components: V, S
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: one spell
Duration: instantaneous
Saving Throw: none
Spell Resistance: no

You can use benign dispel to dispel a spell you have cast. You can dispel the effects of a single spell on a single target, or a single lasting area spell.

A dispelled spell ends as if its duration had expired. Spells that cannot be affected by dispel magic are also immune to benign dispel. Benign dispel can dispel spell-like effects you have created just as it does spells.

Benign dispel cannot affect magic items of any kind.

Bestow Curse

The following are variant effects for bestow curse.

Spell Effect The target suffers the effect of one of these spells, chosen when the curse is inflicted. This is a permanent necromancy (curse) effect, with a range of touch and allowing a Will save to negate. The save DC is based on the level of the spell that delivers the curse (normally bestow curse, but other spells can mimic bestow curse effects). A spell effect curse never has a partial effect; either the target is cursed and suffers the full effect, or it is not. An effect that would counter one of these spells instead suppresses the curse as long as the countering effect remains. An instantaneous effect that would negate the effect suppresses the curse for 1 minute.

  1. anticipate thoughts
  2. aversion
  3. calm emotions
  4. compassionate ally
  5. dimensional anchor (no emerald field)
  6. faerie fire
  7. fairness (no symbol appears)
  8. false belief
  9. haze of dreams
  10. imbue with aura
  11. inflict pain
  12. isolate
  13. jealous rage
  14. jitterbugs
  15. mad hallucination
  16. reckless infatuation
  17. shamefully overdressed
  18. stage fright
  19. touch of mercy
  20. twisted space
  21. Alienation The target does not consider any creature its ally, does not grant or benefit from flanking bonuses, is never a willing target of any effect, and cannot voluntarily fail a saving throw or lower spell resistance.
  22. Anonymity All of the target’s facial features, vocal cues, and identifying physical traits change, transforming the target into an unremarkable member of its race and a gender selected by the caster. Any skill check to affirm the target's identity has a DC of 30.
  23. Aphasia The target cannot speak, read, or write any language. The target can understand spoken language relating to the situation at hand, but not abstract or distant subjects. The target cannot cast spells with verbal components and cannot use spellbooks, scrolls, and similar written magical devices. The target cannot use or be affected by language-dependent effects and Bluff checks to deceive or Diplomacy checks to make requests.
  24. Bad Luck Every time the target makes an attack roll or skill check, it rolls 2d20 and takes the lower result.
  25. Carrier The effect of the most severe disease (highest save DC) on the target is suppressed, but the target cannot be cured of this disease by any means and remains contagious. If the creature contracts another disease, only the disease with the highest save DC is suppressed; the target suffers the effect of any other diseases normally. If the target does not suffer a disease when this curse is inflicted, it automatically contacts filth fever.
  26. Day-blind The target treats conditions of normal or bright light as dim light and bright light as darkness. Low-light vision and darkvision do not negate these penalties, but still allows improved vision in dim light and darker conditions.
  27. Death's Door When the target is reduced to -1 or fewer hit points it immediately dies, but the soul is locked in the body for 24 hours, making it susceptible to effects like soul bind that capture a soul.
  28. Dread Target suffers the shaken condition. Whenever the target suffers any fear condition from some other source, the target is terrorized for the period it would normally suffer that fear effect. A target that is immune to fear or mind-affecting effects is immune to this curse.
  29. Fatigue Target suffers the fatigued condition. Whenever the target becomes fatigued from some other source, the target is exhausted for the period it would normally be fatigued. Targets immune to the fatigued conditioned are immune to this curse.
  30. Hallucinations The target suffers 50% concealment miss chance on all attacks, and anyone can use Stealth against the target.
  31. Hemophilia This spell causes any existing wounds that the target possesses to bleed profusely. If the creature’s current total hit points are less than its maximum, the target takes 1d6 points of bleed damage each round. A successful DC 15 Heal check or any spell that cures hit point damage negates the bleeding until the next time the target takes hit point damage.
  32. Honesty The target cannot lie, dissemble, or use trickery. It suffers a -20 penalty on Bluff and Sleight of Hand checks. Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate checks to make the target reveal secrets gain a +10 circumstance bonus.
  33. Infirmity The target is sickened. In any round when the target attempts to take a standard or full-round action, there is a 50% chance the target is nauseated and must change their action accordingly.
  34. Land-bound The target cannot fly or walk on air or water. This negates all magical and mundane air travel and cannot be moved off the ground by telekinesis or similar effects. The target can still swim and ride a creature or vehicle.
  35. Locked Gaze The target is compelled to look at the caster of the curse and only at them. When the caster is not in sight, the target's vision is constantly distracted. The caster gains a +4 bonus on Charisma-based skill checks and on the save DC of gaze attacks and enchantment spells against the target. The target is distracted on all Perception checks and all creatures except the caster gain concealment against the target. Blind creatures and creatures with all-around vision are immune to this curse.
  36. Mute The target cannot speak or sing. Target cannot use spells with verbal components or items with command word activation, and suffers a -4 penalty on Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate, and Use Magic Device checks.
  37. Obvious The target suffers a -20 penalty on Stealth checks, and must make a Stealth check each round to remain hidden, even if conditions would not normally require a check. Survival checks to track the creature gain a +10 bonus.
  38. Odor Target suffers a distinctive and unpleasant body odor. The DC of Survival checks to track the target are reduced by 5. The target suffers a -5 penalty on Diplomacy, Disguise, and Stealth checks. Double the effect against creatures with scent.
  39. Painless The target cannot feel pain. It does not realize how hurt it is, the GM should secretly track damage, ability damage, and ability drain for the target. The creature's survival instincts are impaired, causing a -2 penalty to AC and all saves. The target cannot be tortured and is immune to pain effects.
  40. Reverberation This curse reflects the force of weapons used by the target of the curse, damaging the weapon. After making a successful weapon attack, the target used must make a Strength check (DC is the weapon's hardness) or the weapon gains the broken condition. If the weapon already has the broken condition, it is destroyed. Natural and unarmed attacks are unaffected by this curse.
  41. Rudeness The target suffers a -20 penalty on Diplomacy checks without realizing it.
  42. Selective Invisibility The caster names or points at a creature when inflicting this curse. This creature becomes imperceptible to all the target's senses except touch. This includes exceptional senses like blindsense, blindsight, scent, or tremorsense. See invisibility does not let the target perceive the creature, but true seeing does.
  43. Silence The target is affected by a silence effect that has no area and only affects the target. The target cannot make or hear any sound whatsoever. All sound is stopped: conversation is impossible, spells with verbal components cannot be cast, and no noise whatsoever issues from or can be heard by the target. The target is immune to sonic or language-dependent effects and gains a +4 bonus on Stealth checks, but suffers a -4 penalty on Perception, and any sound-based Perception checks automatically fail.
  44. Sleeplessness Target cannot sleep. Any effect that causes sleep is negated after one minute, which is insufficient to rest. Characters who do not get a full night’s sleep cannot prepare arcane or psychic spells and may suffer the effects of fatigue. The target must make a Fortitude save (DC as the spell) each night or be fatigued and take a –1 penalty on all skill checks and on saving throws against sleep effects. A second night without sleep requires another Fortitude save. A failed save results in the character becoming exhausted and the penalties increasing to –2. Each additional failed save on a later night increases the penalties by 1.
  45. Shrinking The target shrinks in size and power. The target's size category is reduced two steps (Medium becomes Tiny, Small becomes Diminutive). All damage the target inflicts is halved (including damage from spells and supernatural abilities) and the save DC of all abilities is reduced by 4. Speed and the range increment of all weapons is reduced to half. The target gains a +4 size bonus to Dexterity and suffers a -8 Size bonus to Strength. The target gains a +2 bonus on AC and attack rolls, a +4 modifier of Fly checks, and a +8 bonus on Stealth checks.
  46. Staggered Target suffers the staggered condition.
  47. Venerable The target suffers the effects of venerable age; -6 to Strength, Dexterity and Constitution, +3 to Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma. In addition, it suffers -10 on Perception checks and its speed is reduced by half. Any effect that negates age penalties suppresses all the ability modifiers of this curse. Undead are immune to this curse.
  48. Vertigo The target cannot fly and is nauseated whenever it stands up. Treat the target as prone when sitting. Targets without a land speed are immune to this curse.
  49. Youth Target gains a +2 bonus to Dexterity and a –2 penalty to all other ability scores. The target is not taken seriously and suffers a -20 penalty on Diplomacy checks to make requests. Any effect that negates age penalties suppresses the Dexterity bonus of this curse.

This is enough to cover the head of a Large creature. Color gives a +2 competence bonus on Disguise, Forgery, Profession (Groom) and appropriate Craft skills, but the effect of such skill use ends when the spell does. When used with skills to create more than simple flat colors, the casting time is extended to the time such a craft project would normally take.

Components V, S
Casting Time 1 standard action
Range touch
Target one toolkit up to 10 lb. weight
Duration 10 minutes/level (D), see text
Saving Throw none
Spell resistance no

You create a toolkit appropriate to use one skill, removing penalties for lack of tools. The tool is not masterwork, does not give a skill bonus, and cannot serve as raw material. For example, this spell can create quills and a flat writing surface, but not paper or ink. The tool can be used as an improvised weapon. The spell ends if you cast this spell again or if the tools are more than 5 ft. away from you at the end of any of your turns.

Creeping Mist

Conjuration (creation)
Level: druid 3, magus 3, shaman 3, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 3
Range: long (400 ft. + 40/level)
Duration: 10 minutes/level (D)
Effect Cloud of fog in 20-ft. radius or mist in 10 ft. radius/level 20 ft. high (see text) (S)

As fog cloud except as noted above and that you can spend a move action to re-shape the cloud, make it move 20 ft. within the range of the spell, shape the cloud as you wish in the area (even to make several separate clouds), or thin the mist to increase the radius up to 10 ft./caster level. In thin mist creature 5 feet away has no concealment. Creatures farther away have concealment (attacks have a 20% miss chance).

Cure Light Wounds

Revision
Conjuration (healing)

Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw none
Spell Resistance yes (harmless); see text

When laying your hand upon a living creature, you channel positive energy that cures 1d8 points of damage +1 point per caster level (maximum +5). Since undead are powered by negative energy, this spell deals damage to them instead of curing their wounds. An undead creature can apply Spell Resistance.

Dancing Shadows

Revision, work in progress
Evocation [darkness]
Level: bard 0, magus 0, shaman 0, sorcerer/wizard 0, witch 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target: Up to four dark motes, all within a 10-ft.-radius area
Duration: 1 minute (D)
Saving Throw: none
Spell Resistance: no

Depending on the version selected, you create up to four dark motes that resemble dancing shadows (and lower the light level by one level in a single 5 ft. square each, to a minimum of dim light) or one vaguely humanoid shape resembling the shadow of a creature or an incorporeal undead. The dancing shadows must stay within a 10-foot-radius area in relation to each other but otherwise move as you desire (no concentration required): forward or back, up or down, straight or turning corners, or the like. The motes can move up to 100 feet per round. A mote winks out if the distance between you and it exceeds the spell’s range.

You can only have one dancing lights or dancing shadows 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, it does not count against this limit.

Dancing lights can be made permanent with a permanency spell at the same cost as dancing lights.

Deepockets

Publisher: Trailseeker
Transmutation
Level: magus 2, occultist 2, psychic 2, sorcerer/wizard 2, witch 2
Components: V, S, M (needle and thread)
Cast Time: 1 minute
Range: touch
Target: robe or pouch touched
Duration: 1 hour/level (D)
Save: Fortitude negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: yes (harmless, object)

This spell must be cast on spell component pouch or on a garment with voluminous pockets, such as a robe or sash. It alters the item to create 1000 small pockets; each of these can hold one Diminutive item or creature, such as a mouse, one piece of ammunition (arrow, bolt, shuriken), a wand, scroll, potion bottle, or a typical material component. Retrieving or storing an item from any of these pockets is a free action for the wearer. Deepockets cannot exceed a total capacity of 4 cubic feet or 100 lbs., and stored items still count towards carried weight. When the spell ends, all stored items return to the pockets of the original target item.

Deja Vu

Work in progress
Divination
Level: bard 3, cleric/oracle 3, medium 2, psychic 3, shaman 3, witch 3
Components: V, S
Casting Time: immediate action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./ 2 caster levels)
Target: one intelligent creature
Duration: instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: yes

Creatures near the target are gripped by a feeling of deja vu, seeing the immediate result of their actions and become able to choose to act differently.

Cast this spell at the end of the turn of a creature within range. What happened on that creature's turn only happened in one possible future. By casting this spell, you send a message back in time to the beginning of the target's turn, giving the target awareness of the result of their actions, and the option to act differently.

All events that happened during the target's turn are rewound; spells are not cast, resources are not spent, damage is not taken, effects didn't happen. The target creature gets to take its turn again, but can choose to take entirely different actions. Regardless of if actions are the same or different, all dice are rolled again, as the target cannot help but make minor changes in its actions.

A creature of zero Intelligence will always take the same actions again and thus cannot be affected by this spell.

Devil Contract

Conjuration (calling) [curse, evil, lawful]
Level: bard 5, cleric/oracle 5, psychic 5, sorcerer/wizard 5, summoner 4
Components: V, S, M (silver shackle worth 20 gp)
Cast Time: 1 minute
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./ 2 caster levels)
Target: Once creature and one devil
Duration: permanent until triggered
Save: Will negates
SR: yes

You curse the target with a conditional devil contract. Stipulate a condition when the devil is summoned to attack the cursed creature. The condition can be a complex one with several clauses. The cursed creature need not know this condition, but it is often in your best interests to inform the victim. When the condition occurs, the devil immediately appears and does its best to kill the cursed creature, as well as anyone nearby who interferes. It then disappears. If the devil is defeated or kills the victim, the curse ends.

The devil need not be present when the spell is cast, but must owe you service, usually compelled by a planar ally' or planar binding spell, and that service is expended casting this spell. If the devil is present when the spell is cast, a verbal agreement suffices.

Devil contract cannot be negated by dispel magic, but remove curse and stronger spells can negate it. If an attempt to negate the curse fails, the devil appears and tries to kill the cursed creature as above.

Dimension Door, Lesser

Publisher: Purple Duck Games

Conjuration (teleportation)
Level bard 2, magus 1, medium 2, mesmerist 2, occultist 2, psychic 2, sorcerer/wizard 2, spiritualist 2, witch 2
Components V, S
Casting Time 1 standard action
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./level)
Target you
Duration instantaneous

This is the same as dimension door, except as noted above and in that you must see the destination when casting the spell. If your familiar is in physical contact with you when you cast this spell, you can bring it along, but not any other creature.

Energy Orb

Publisher: Trailseeker.

Conjuration [acid, cold, electricity, or fire]
Level magus 0, sorcerer/wizard 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./ 2 caster levels)
Target: creature or object
Duration: instantaneous
Saving Throw: Reflex negates
Spell Resistance: yes

Creates an orb of energy that deals 1d4 damage to the target. This spell exists in 4 variations that must be learned separately; acid, cold, electricity, and fire. The spell takes on the descriptor of its energy type.

Feign Death

Necromancy [death]
Level: cleric/oracle 3, medium 1, mesmerist 3, occultist 3, psychic 3, shaman 2, sorcerer/wizard 3, spiritualist 2, witch 3
Components: V
Cast Time: 1 immediate action
Range: touch
Target: willing living creature touched
Duration: 1 day/level or until triggered
Save: no (harmless)
SR: yes (harmless)

This spell kills a willing target, binds the soul to the body, and creates a contingency that allows the target to resurrect itself at any time inside the duration of the spell. If the spell ends while the target is dead, the soul passes on and can no longer resurrect the body. As a part of this spell, the corpse and its possessions are protected by magic aura. Note that a corpse is an object, including a corpse under this spell.

The casting time is an immediate action; it can be cast as a reaction to an attack but before the attack is executed; seemingly the attack killed the target. If prepared with a contingency it can trigger on your death. While dead and bound to the body, the target can perceive what is within 10 ft. of his heart. At any time within the duration of the spell he can resurrect his body.

Coming back from the dead is an ordeal. The subject of the spell gains two negative levels when it is raised, just as if it had been hit by an energy-draining creature. The save DC to remove these negative levels is automatically successful. Resurrection by feign death does not cause the loss of spells.

A creature raised by feign death has half its full hit points. Any ability scores damaged to 0 are raised to 1. All poison and disease are cured in the process of raising the subject. While the spell closes mortal wounds and repairs lethal damage of most kinds, the body of the creature to be raised must be whole. Otherwise, missing parts are still missing when the creature is brought back to life.

This spell was adapted from first edition.

Feign Death, Greater

Level: cleric/oracle 6, medium 4, psychic 7, shaman 5, sorcerer/wizard 7, spiritualist 6, witch 7
Duration: 10 years/level or until triggered

This is the same as feign death except as noted above and as follows.

The target's body is repaired when resurrected, healing any attribute damage and drain and restoring any missing body parts. Only the target's heart needs to be intact for the resurrection to be possible.

Fey Gold

Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 2, druid 3, mesmerist 1, sorcerer/wizard 2
Components: V, S, M (yellowed leaves)
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels.
Target: objects up to 1 lb./level.
Duration: 1 hour/level (D) (see text)
Save: Will disbelief (if interacted with)
SR: no

Covering the objects in autumn leaves, you turn it to gold, while spare leaves turn into a pile of gold coins.

This spell turns any object into semi-real gold. It can be used to swindle, but a safer use is to impress with paste jewelry. Yellow leaves turn into gold coins; other objects become golden versions of themselves. This seems to be gold to all senses and mundane detections, having the correct weight, softness and so on. Gold objects weigh twice as much as objects ordinary metal and eight times as much as an organic object of the same shape and have a Hardness of 5. One pound of raw gold is worth 25 gp, one pound of gold coins are worth 50 gp, the value of other forgeries seem to be worth a hundred times the object's original value. The maximum value possible is 50 gp per caster level. A magical object or one in a creature's possession gets a Will save when the spell is initially cast. A fey gold item touched by cold iron is restored to normal.

A cloud of golden particles covers everyone and everything in the area, causing creatures to become blinded and visibly outlining invisible things for the duration of the spell. All within the area are covered by the dust, which continues to sparkle until it fades or is removed. Any creature covered by the dust takes a -40 penalty on Stealth checks.

A successful saving throw negates the blinding, but creatures are still covered with dust. Each round on your turn turn blinded creatures may attempt new saving throws to end the blindness. As a standard action affected creatures can attempt a new saving throw to dust off the glitterdust and end the entire effect.

A creature with an Intelligence score of 2 or lower is not affected. A creature whose type is different from the caster's receives a +4 bonus on its saving throw, because humor doesn't "translate" well.

Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: touched creature with class levels
Duration: permanent
Saving Throw: Will negates

The cursed creature is stunned for 10 minutes and gains a living monolith archetype. Immediately retrain all the creature's feats and all class levels to levels in a living monolith prestige archetype. The target is also subject to a quest of the caster's choosing, and this can be an open-ended quest without the usual time limit. This quest can only be removed by breaking the living monolith curse. When the curse is lifted, the creature returns to its previous class(es), and may immediately advance any levels it gained as a living monolith. If the quest is fulfilled or becomes impossible to fulfill (such as if a guarded tomb is desecrated), the target has the option to return to his old class, or to continue forever as a living monolith; in either case the curse ends.

Living monolith prestige archetypes include the ib monoloth, living monolith, ren monolith, and sheut monoloith.

The curse bestowed by this spell cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell.

Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: plant touched
Duration: concentration (maximum 1 round/level) (see text)
Saving Throw: none
Spell Resistance: no

This spell matures a single plant, causing it to grow and ripen in a matter of rounds. It can be cast on a newly planted seed or on an immature plant. Each round the plant grows by one size category, up to a maximum size depending on caster level. If the plant reaches its full natural size and the caster would be capable of making a plant larger than this, it will then burst into flower and fruit simultaneously on the next round. If the spell is cast on a seed, the seed sprouts and the plant grows to Diminutive size on the first round, and then continues to grow as above. The grown plant is not magical and cannot be dispelled, but if the spell is dispelled while the plant is still growing, growth immediately stops.

The spell can never make the plant grow larger than it could naturally do in the location and it will not grow in a way that causes it to damage construction. Growth can create difficult ground and the trunk of the plant is a solid volume, but never fills more than a single 5 ft. square.

If the plant yields something of value, such as darkwood, or medical or magical effects with a gold value, the caster needs to sprinkle an equal value in rare earths over the plant as it grows. Normal hardwoods, fruit or herbs have no cost. This spell has no effect on plant creatures or on plants with a challenge rating, such as green slime.

Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 minute/level

This spell creates a number of illusory doubles of you that inhabit your square. These doubles make it difficult for enemies to precisely locate and attack you.

When mirror image is cast, 1d4 images plus one image per three caster levels (maximum eight images total) are created. These images remain in your space and move with you. Attacks against you suffer a concealment 50% miss chance. Test miss chance before comparing the attack roll to your Armor Class, when an attack misses because of the miss chance, one image disappears. The spell is discharged when no images remain. Only effects that make an attack roll destroy images.

The target of mirror image suffers a -1 penalty on Stealth checks per image.

An attacker must be able to see the figments to be fooled. If you are invisible, the attacker is blind, or the attack is from an area effect or trap the spell has no effect and no image is destroyed.

Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 min./level (D)
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no; see text

This spell wards a creature from attacks by evil creatures, evil spells, mental control, and from summoned creatures. It creates a magical barrier around the subject at a distance of 1 foot. The barrier moves with the subject and has three major effects.

First, the subject gains a +2 deflection bonus to AC and a +2 resistance bonus on saves. Both these bonuses apply only against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures.

Second, the warded creature receives a second saving throw against the following spells when used by an evil creature; magic jar, possession, all spells with the evil descriptor, and all spells of the enchantment school. It also protects against all effects based on these spells. A creature under an ongoing effect of this kind that has protection from evil cast on it immediately receives another saving throw (if one was allowed to begin with).

Third, the spell prevents bodily contact by summoned creatures of evil alignment. This causes the natural and unarmed attacks of such creatures to fail. Summoned creatures that are not evil are immune to this effect. The protection against contact by summoned creatures ends if the warded creature makes an attack against or tries to force the barrier against the blocked creature. Spell resistance can allow a creature to overcome this protection and touch the warded creature.

Saving Throw: Will disbelief (See text)
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine. This spell has been adapted from first edition.

This spell creates the illusion of a suit of full-plate armor on your person. This gives an armor bonus of +9 with no weight, chance of arcane spell failure, movement restriction, or armor penalty. An opponent that misses an attack against you is allowed a Will saving throw to disbelieve, which ends the spell but the miss is still a miss. If you take off the phantom armor, the spell ends.

Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./ 2 caster levels)
Target one creature or a 50 ft. spread

Saving Throw Will negates (object)
Spell resistance yes (object)

You clean an area and all objects therein, collecting dust and debris, removing tracks and any lingering auras in the area, making it impossible to use any object or the place itself as a magical link to someone or to see if any magic has been performed there. Objects in the area are no longer considered personal belongings or body parts of anyone. Objects carried or worn by creatures in the area are not affected, nor are objects in secure containers. You can focus the effect on a specific creature instead of an area, affecting everything worn or carried—such objects will gain an new aura pretty soon.

Pushing Ray

Components V, S
Casting Time 1 standard action
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect ray
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw Fortitude negates (object)
Spell resistance yes

This ray gives a telekinetic push similar to what an normal human hand can do. This is sufficient to switch a lever, move small objects, and possibly open a stuck door or push weak creatures around but does not allow fine manipulation. A ranged touch attack is required to hit, and the spell can attempt Strength feats involving pushing (such as opening a stuck door or push an object) as a Medium size creature with Strength 10. Magic items receive a saving throw against being pushed. A Medium or smaller creature hit by the spell must save or be pushed 5 ft. This movement does not trigger attacks of opportunity.

Red Repellent

Abjuration (electricity)
Level: magus 1, sorcerer/wizard 1, witch 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: willing creature touched
Duration: 1 hour/level (D)
Saving Throw: Reflex half, see text
Spell Resistance: yes

This spell surrounds the target in a field of red electric discharges. This gives a small electric shock to all diminutive or smaller creatures end their movement in the caster's space. To such creatures, the spell inflicts 1 point of electrical damage per caster level and pushes it out of the caster's space. To a swarm of such creatures, the spell pushes it out of the caster's space and inflicts 1d6 points of electric damage per caster level, to a maximum of 5d6 at 5th level. This counts as an area attack against swarms. A Reflex saving throw halves the damage and prevents push (negating damage in the case of a single creature), but a new save is required on the next round if the creature remains in the area.

Resistance (Greater)

Abjuration
Level: cleric/oracle 1, druid 2, inquisitor 2, paladin 1
Components: V, S, M/DF (a miniature shield)
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: willing creature touched
Duration: 10 minutes/level (D)
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: yes (harmless)

You imbue the subject with magical energy that protects it from harm, granting it a +2 resistance bonus on saving throws, with an additional +1 to the bonus for every six levels you have (maximum +5 resistance bonus at 18th level).

Reproduction

Transmutation
Level: inquisitor 2, medium 3, occultist 2, psychic 3, sorcerer/wizard 2, spiritualist 3
Components: V, S, M (quill)
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: object or objects with images and or writing
Duration: 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw: Will negates (object)
Spell Resistance: yes (object)

You cause writing and images from one source (such as a book) to be copied into a book, paper, or parchment. This spell copies one square foot (one page in a typical large codex, or approximately 250 words) per minute. It can also create a miniature version of a large image, copying up to a 10 ft. square image onto a 1 ft. square paper in one minute, but considerable detail is lost this way. The caster must remain within range while spell works, but need not pay attention.

The spell faithfully copies what is there to the limit of it's ability, but subtle clues or hidden details might be lost. What the spell produces is obviously a reproduction, but includes all salient details, similar to what a journeyman artist could produce (equivalent to a Craft (calligraphy and drawing) roll of 15). You can concentrate on the spell to use your own skills to set the quality of what the spell produces.

The spell copies only non-magical text and images, not magical writings. The spell triggers (but does not copy) writing and symbol-based magic traps in the material being copied. The material component quill (1 hp, Hardness 0) does the actual writing, and if it is destroyed the spell ends.

Blank paper, parchment, or a book must be provided for the spell to write upon. If there are multiple pages, the spell can turn to the next page up to once per round. If more pages in the target exist than blank pages are available, the spell copies the original until it runs out of blank pages. At any time during the spell’s duration you can redirect the magic to copy from another target, copy onto a different blank source, or resume a duplication that was interrupted by a shortfall of blank pages.

Repulsiveness

Necromancy [curse]
Level animist 2, bard 2, mesmerist 1, psychic 1, sorcerer/wizard 2

Casting Time 1 standard action
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft. /2 levels)
Target one creature
Duration 1 hour/level (D)
Saving Throw Fortitude negates;
Spell Resistance Yes

The target becomes hideous to gaze upon. This gives a -2 penalty per caster level (to a maximum of -10) to all Charisma rolls and charisma-related skill checks except Intimidation and Use Magic Device.

Dispel magic cannot end repulsiveness, but remove curse and stronger abjurations can.

This spell temporarily rouses a spirit as an undead creature. The creature appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn, and disappears at the end of the duration. 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 creates one of the creatures from the 1st Level list on Table: Rouse Undead. You choose which kind of creature to rouse, and you can choose a different one each time you cast the spell.

Undead cannot be roused within the area of a consecrate or hallow spell. A roused undead cannot rejuvenate, summon, spawn, multiply by infection, or otherwise recreate itself or create another creature. Creatures roused using this spell cannot use spells or spell-like abilities that duplicate spells with expensive material components (such as wish). An incorporeal roused creature can be damaged by all physical attacks as if those attacks were magical.

Scapegoat

Enchantment (charm) (mind-affecting, language-dependent)
Level: bard 3, inquisitor 3, mesmerist 2, psychic 3, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 3
Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft./2 caster levels)

This is the same as taunt, except that the caster designates a creature in range as the target of the attacks. If this creature saves, the spell is completely negated and affects no-one.

Scent of Sight

Publisher: Trailseeker
Transmutation
Level: alchemist 4, bloodrager 4, druid 4, ranger 3.
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Components: V
Range: personal
Target: you
Duration: 10 minutes/level

Your sense of smell develops to fantastic levels. You gain scent and can track, identify creatures and substances, and tell a creature's mood by scent, gaining a +8 bonus on Craft (alchemy), Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks for these purposes. You gain a scent-based blindsight with a range of 15 ft. This blindsight cannot sense ethereal or incorporeal creatures. The sickened and nauseated conditions suppress scent of sight.

Send Image I

Illusion (phantasm)
Level: cleric/oracle 7, inquisitor 6, medium 4, mesmerist 5, occultist 5, psychic 5, shaman 6, sorcerer/wizard 6, spiritualist 5.
Casting Time 1 minute
Components V, S, M (a small replica of you worth 5 gp)
Range unlimited on same plane
Effect one creature (see text)
Duration Concentration, up to 1 minute/level
Saving Throw Will disbelief no
Spell Resistance yes (harmless)

You contact a particular creature with which you are familiar and a phantasmal image of you appears to that creature. You can converse with the target, but you cannot see the target unless the target spends a standard action each round on communicating with you. You and the target can invite others within 20 ft. of each of you into the conversation, and if they accept they can see all parties in the conversation. All communication is telepathic. It is possible to use Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate, and Sense Motive this way once a target starts to reply. Send Image cannot transfer any effect except these four skills. It is possible to cast this spell again while concentrating to maintain it, sending your phantasmal image to another creature and inviting them into the conversation.

Send Image II

Illusion (phantasm)
Level: cleric/oracle 9, medium 4, mesmerist 6, occultist 6, psychic 7, shaman 8, sorcerer/wizard 8, spiritualist 6.
Range unlimited on any plane

This is the same as send image, except that you (and only you) can cast one spell targeting one or more creatures that are communicating with you as if you were touching them, or give a single item to one of these creatures, who must willingly accept the spell or item. This discharges the spell. This spell can be undercast by a spontaneous spellcaster.

Sense Sin

Divination
Level: antipaladin 1, bard 1, cleric/oracle 1, inquisitor 0, paladin 1, psychic 1, witch 1.

As detect evil except that you pick one vice or sin that is considered morally distasteful in your culture when you cast the spell. You sense creatures and objects that strongly represent that sin, or that have recently acted upon that sin.

Singing Sword Curse

Necromancy (curse)
Level: cleric/oracle 5, bard 4, magus 5, shaman 5, sorcerer/wizard 5, witch 4
Components: V, S, F (iron ring)
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: creature or intelligent weapon touched
Duration: permanent
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: yes

The cursed creature becomes a singing sword. If the target is a creature it immediately gains the singing sword archetype. Any weapons the target are wielding go into the singing sword's extra-dimensional storage. If the target is an intelligent weapon, it needs to be generated as a character of a race and class suitable to its personality and a character level equal to its caster level. It also gains a non-intelligent copy of its original self for its absorb weapon ability, and this cannot be removed from the absorb weapon cache by any means.

Anyone wearing the iron ring that was used as the focus item gains a +5 bonus on Will saving throws against the cursed singing sword's Ego.

The curse bestowed by this spell cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell. When the curse is lifted, the singing sword loses the archetype and an intelligent weapon resumes its original form and abilities.

Shadow Armaments

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 2, inquisitor 1, magus 2, medium 1, mesmerist 1, psychic 1, shaman 2, sorcerer/wizard 2, witch 2
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: one illusory enchanted item
Duration: 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw: Will partial (see text)
SR: no
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine. This spell has been adapted from first edition.

This spell creates one illusory magic item out of shadow; either a weapon or suit of armor. This item has an enhancement bonus of +1 per four caster levels (minimum +1) and is used exactly like a normal item of its kind, except that the caster of the spell is always considered proficient with shadow armaments. Targets are entitled to a Will saving throw when first struck by such a weapon or when they miss a creature wearing such armor; on a success, the item’s mundane armor bonus or damage value can be ignored, but damage or armor class derived from the enhancement bonus applies as normal. Non-intelligent creatures and objects automatically succeed at this saving throw.

Shadow Creation

Illusion (shadow)
Level: occultist 3, shaman 3, sorcerer/wizard 3
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 minute
Range: 0 ft.
Target: unattended, nonmagical object, up to 1 cu. ft./level
Duration: 1 hour/level (D)
Save: Will disbelief; see text
SR: no

You create an unattended item with no magical properties. The volume of the item created cannot exceed 1 cubic foot per caster level.

Items so created are only partially real. When interacting solely with dead matter, they have only 20% of their normal strength or capacity. When interacting with a creature the item functions normally, but that creature can attempt a Will saving throw; success causes the item to disappear. A creature can only attempt to disbelieve the spell once.

Jingen uses the spell to create rope. He uses this rope to haul himself out of a crevice. He chooses to void his Will saving throw, and the shadow creation rope functions normally. Later, Jingen uses part of the rope to repair a bridge and then moves on; in this case the rope has only 20% of its normal strength. Finally, he uses some of it to tie up an opponent; the opponent can make a Will saving throw when he interacts with the rope to try and break free.

Attempting to use any created object as a material component only works 20% of the time, or never if the material component has a gold piece value.

Shadow Creation, Greater

Illusion (shadow)
Level: occultist 5, sorcerer/wizard 5

As shadow creation except the object is 60% as effective and 60% likely to work as a material component with no gold value.

Shadow Fighting

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 1, cleric/oracle 1, inquisitor 1, magus 1, mesmerist 0, psychic 1, shaman 1, sorcerer/wizard 2
Components: V, S, M/DF (flimsy toy weapon)
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: creature touched
Duration: 1 minute/level or until disbelieved
Saving Throw: Will negates and Will disbelief; see text
Spell Resistance: yes
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

This spell can be used to fool an opponent into causing unreal damage, but it is more commonly used to fake a conflict or make a performance.

This spell turns the target's attacks into unreal shadows inflicting nonlethal damage. The attacks look and feel real enough, but cannot actually kill. Any damage the target does is transformed into nonlethal damage, including damage done by spells and abilities. The target can apply any resistance or damage reduction it has to the apparent damage type. A creature immune to nonlethal damage takes normal damage from shadow fighting attacks. The spell will not affect any damage caused indirectly, such as by a summoned creature or from a fall caused by a bull rush.

Upon being targeted by the spell and each time the spell inflicts nonlethal damage, the target and the creature damaged can each try a Will save to disbelieve. Anyone bandaging or closely studying the illusory wounds can also disbelieve. Successful disbelief ends the spell. Any damage remains, but is now obviously nonlethal.

If the caster fails to overcome the spell resistance of either the wielder or a creature damaged, the spell is negated. If the spell has overcome a creature's spell resistance, it works normally against that creature for the duration.

Shadow Fighting, Mass

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 2, cleric/oracle 3, inquisitor 3, magus 3, mesmerist 1, psychic 2, shaman 2, sorcerer/wizard 3
Range: close
Target: one creature/level, no two of which may be more than 30 ft. apart.

Except as noted, this is the same as the shadow fighting spell.

Shadow Necromancy, Lesser

Publisher: Trailseeker.

Illusion (shadow) [evil]
Level: mesmerist 2, psychic 3, shaman 3, sorcerer/wizard 3
Components: V, S, M (corpse dust, see text)
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels
Duration: 10 minutes/level
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if interacted with), see text
SR: no
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

You use dust from a desiccated corpse to animate shadow undead. This works like animate dead, except as noted above and that you do not need an actual corpse to animate, only a pinch of desiccated dust from a corpse of the proper type. A single corpse yields thousands of pitches for this spell. All undead created with this spell obey the caster, but intelligent creatures may go beyond the caster's orders.

Any creature that interacts with a shadowy creature can make a Will save to recognize its true nature. A creature that succeeds on its save sees that the creature is but a pale shadow. Objects automatically succeed on their Will saves against this spell. Against those that recognize the illusion, the creature inflicts only 20% normal damage and any special ability that do does not deal damage are only 20% likely to work. (Roll for each use and each affected character separately.) Furthermore, the shadow creature's AC bonuses are just one-fifth as large.

Finally, regardless of whether it's recognized as shadowy, the creature only has 20% of its normal hit points.

Shadow Necromancy

Illusion (shadow) [evil]; Level: mesmerist 5, psychic 6, shaman 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

This spell functions like lesser shadow necromancy, except that it can also duplicate create undead and that the illusion has 50% substance.

Shadow Necromancy, Greater

Illusion (shadow) [evil]; Level: psychic 8, shaman 8, sorcerer/wizard 8

This spell functions like lesser shadow necromancy, except that it can also duplicate create undead and create greater undead and that the illusion has 80% substance.

Shadow Polymorph

Illusion (shadow)
Level: medium 4, mesmerist 4, psychic 4, shaman 4, sorcerer/wizard 4
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: willing creature touched
Duration: 1 minute/level
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if interacted with), see text
Spell Resistance: no
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

This is like polymorph or object shape I, except you use material from the Plane of Shadow to transform a creature touched into a quasi-real shape. Any creature that interacts with the shadow polymorphed creature can make a Will save to recognize its true nature. A creature that succeeds on its save sees the shadow polymorph as transparent images superimposed on the true form. Objects automatically succeed on their Will saves against this spell.

Against a creature that recognizes the illusion, physical damage and the damage of any power gained from the shadow polymorph is only 20% of normal, and all special abilities that do not deal lethal damage are only 20% likely to work. (Roll for each use and each affected character separately.)

Regardless of the result of the save to disbelieve, a creature affected by an ability gained from this spell is also allowed any save that the attack being simulated allows. The target never gains armor or natural armor from the spell.

The target of the spell must be willing and make himself believe in it for the spell to work, and gains all the benefits and limitations of the new form except as outlined above.

Shadow Polymorph, Greater

Illusion (shadow); mesmerist 6, psychic 6, shaman 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

This spell functions like shadow polymorph, except that it duplicates greater polymorph or object shape III. Illusory attacks deal 50% damage to nonbelievers and non-damaging effects are 50% likely to work against nonbelievers.

Shadow Shape

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 4, magus 4, medium 4, mesmerist 4, psychic 4, sorcerer/wizard 4
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: personal
Duration: 1 minute/level
Saving Throw: Will disbelief (if interacted with), see text
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

You use material from the Plane of Shadow to transform yourself into a quasi-real shape. Shadow transmutation can mimic any sorcerer or wizard transmutation (polymorph) spell with a personal range of 4th level or lower. Any creature that interacts with you while you are under the spell can make a Will save to recognize your true nature. A creature that succeeds on its save sees the shadow transmutation as transparent images superimposed on your true form. Objects automatically succeed on their Will saves against this spell.

Against a creature that recognizes you as a shadow creature, your physical damage and the damage of any power gained from the shadow shape is one-fifth (20%) normal, and all special abilities that do not deal damage are only 20% likely to work. (Roll for each use and each affected character separately.) Regardless of the result of the save to disbelieve, an affected creature is also allowed any save that the attack being simulated allows. The target never gains any armor or natural armor bonus from the spell.

The caster of the spell must make himself believe in it for the spell to work, and gains all the benefits and limitations of the new form except as outlined above.

Shadow Shape, Greater

Illusion (shadow)
Level bard 6, magus 6, mesmerist 6, psychic 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

This spell functions like shadow shape, except that it duplicates any sorcerer or wizard transmutation (polymorph) spell of 6th level or lower. Illusory attacks deal 50% damage to nonbelievers and non-damaging effects are 50% likely to work against nonbelievers.

Shadow Shape, True

Illusion (shadow)
Level psychic 8, sorcerer/wizard 8

This spell functions like shadow shape, except that it duplicates any sorcerer or wizard transmutation (polymorph) spell of 8th level or lower. Illusory attacks deal 80% damage to nonbelievers and non-damaging effects are 80% likely to work against nonbelievers.

Shadow Wounds

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 1, magus 2, medium 2, mesmerist 1, psychic 2, sorcerer/wizard 2
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: touch
Target: one living creature
Duration: 1 minute/level
Saving Throw: Will negates
SR: yes
Publisher: Trailseeker magazine.

You inflict 2d8 + level (maximum +10) hit points of nonlethal damage or grant that much illusory healing that fades when the spell ends. Creatures that are neither alive or dead are not affected by shadow wounds. Illusory healing is temporary hit points that stack with other illusory healing but cannot exceed the damage the creature has currently taken. They do not stack with normal temporary hit points.

Spectral Wounds

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 3, magus 4, medium 4, mesmerist 3, psychic 4, sorcerer/wizard 4

As shadow wounds, except the spell heals or inflicts 4d8 + level (maximum +20) illusory damage.

Shadow Heal/Harm

Illusion (shadow)
Level: bard 6, magus 6, mesmerist 5, psychic 6, sorcerer/wizard 6

As shadow wounds, except that you heal or inflict 10 hit points of illusory healing per level (maximum of 150 hp at level 15). Shadow heal/harm cannot render a creature unconscious; it cannot inflict more nonlethal damage than one point short of the target's current hit points. While a shadow heal/harm used for illusory healing is in effect, any ability damage, blinded, confused, dazed, dazzled, deafened, diseased, exhausted, fatigued, feebleminded, insanity, nauseated, sickened, stunned, and poisoned effects on the target are suppressed, but the effect resumes once shadow heal/harm ends unless they would normally have run out in the meantime.

Range: long (400 ft. + 40 ft./caster level)
Target: one flying creature.
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: yes

You remove a creature's ability to fly. It will fall instantly but harmlessly to the ground, and cannot achieve flight again for the duration. If the space directly below the creature is occupied, it lands in the nearest available space of its choice. This movement does not trigger attacks of opportunity. This spell counters and is countered by fly, and fly (mass).

Stall Flight, Lesser

Publisher: Trailseeker.

Abjuration
Level: cleric/oracle 0, druid 0, inquisitor 0, magus 0, occultist 0, psychic 0, shaman 0, sorcerer/wizard 0.

Steal the Stars

Work in progress
Illusion (phantasm) (curse, mind-affecting)
Level: bard 2, mesmerist 1, psychic 2, shaman 3, witch 3
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: one creature
Duration: permanent
Save: Will negates
SR: yes

You steal some ubiquitous thing from the target's perception, manifesting it as a palm-sized phantasmal object. Until the spell is negated or the target gets this object from you, the spell prevents the target from perceiving the thing you stole. Here is a list of commonly stolen phenomena. The thing you steal must be visible to both you and the target when you cast the spell.

The Sun: The target cannot see the sun nor sunlight. An area in sunlight but not otherwise lit appears like dim light to the target.
The Stars: The target cannot see the stars. An area only lit by starlight appears like darkness.
The Moon: The target cannot see the moon. An area in moonlight but not otherwise lit appears like dim light to the target.
A letter: You steal a letter from the alphabet. The target cannot perceive this letter or understand that it is missing. The target suffers a -10 penalty on Linguistics checks relating to text, and the target cannot read a text of more than a full page a long text, like that of a 1st level or higher spell from a spellbook.
A place: The target cannot perceive a place (which must fit inside a cube 60 ft. on the side). The target cannot find this location, and if led inside counts as blind except that it can still see creatures it could normally see. The target cannot be inside the location when you cast this spell.
An Item: The target cannot use or perceive the item. If it is held in hand, it is immediately dropped. If the target is within your reach, you can take the item from the target as a part of casting the spell. If the item is used to cause damage to the target, the target is denied its Dexterity bonus to AC, but suffers only half damage.

The illusory "object" created by the spell is an illusion ( figment) effect; it can be dispelled (ending the spell) but not destroyed. It is visible to all and can be handled like an ordinary object. If the target recovers the object or if the object is returned to its natural place, the spell ends.

The illusory object can be dispelled like any other spell, but on the target it requires break enchantment, remove curse, or a more powerful effect to dispel steal the stars.

Casting Time 1 round
Components V, S, DF
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect one animal
Duration Concentration
Saving Throw none
Spell Resistance no

This spell summons a weak animal to your side. You can summon any animal available to be a familiar, as the wizard's arcane bond class feature. The summoned creature is not a familiar, you just use the same list of creatures. Summoned creatures gain none of the benefits of being a familiar, you do not gain the advantages of having a familiar, and you cannot summon improved familiars or familiars with an archetype. Also, animals summoned cannot use any abilities limited to a certain number of uses per day. You choose which kind of creature to summon, and you can change that choice each time you cast the spell. Summoned animals are of neural alignment.

The summoned animal appears where you designate and acts immediately, on your turn. It attacks your opponents to the best of its ability.

Taunt

Level: bard 1, bloodrager 1, inquisitor 1, magus 1, medium 1, mesmerist 0, paladin 1, psychic 1, ranger 1, sorcerer/wizard 1, witch 1
Components: V, S, M (slug—live, dead, or imitation)
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 15 ft.
Target: One or more creatures in range.
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will negates

You spit the component at a group of creatures, followed by insults, coaxing them to ignore everything else in order to attack you.

Targets are riled. Targets get a new saving throw on each of your turns to break the spell.

Teleport Beacon

Conjuration (Teleport)
Level: cleric 8, druid 8, magus 6, occultist 6, psychic 7, ranger 4, sorcerer/wizard 6, summoner 5, witch 6;
Components: V, S, M (see text)
Casting Time: 10 minutes
Range: touch
Effect: one teleport beacon in a 20 ft. radius.
Duration: 1 day/level or permanent (see text)
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless, object)
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

You create a dimensional pattern that can guide effects with the teleport descriptor. To benefit from a teleport beacon, the caster of a teleport spell must have studied the beacon first hand for ten minutes.

Any spell with the teleport descriptor that can teleport far enough to reach the teleport beacon can choose to arrive in the teleport beacon's area. Such a teleport always arrives safely and ignores any arrival location limits of the spell, such as the mishap chance of teleport or the distance from the target of plane shift.

Teleport beacon is vulnerable to effects that disrupt teleportation effects; it automatically fails if cast in a situation where teleport spells risk failure or are otherwise hampered.

The material component of the spell is one pound of ground silver (worth 5 gp). By expending 1,000 pounds of silver (worth 5,000 gp) the spell gains a permanent duration. This requires an arrangement of physical objects in specific angles, this can be simple planks or stones, but obelisks or engraving is more permanent. If the arrangement is damaged or changed, the teleport beacon won't work until the pattern is restored.

An alternate use of teleport beacon is to teleport all creatures inside one teleport beacon to another teleport beacon anywhere on the same plane the caster has studied. This use has an instantaneous effect and cannot be made permanent.

Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: yes

With a touch, the target is sickened as from a solid blow to the head. Anything that stabilizes a dying creature ends the spell. The creature can take a standard action to clear its head, allowing a Fortitude save (DC 10) to end the effect.

Transfer Enhancement

Transmutation
Level: bard 4, cleric/oracle 4, druid 5, occultist 3, psychic 5, shaman 4, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 2
Components: V, S, F (cauldron of cold iron worth 100 gp)
Casting Time: 1 hour
Range: touch
Effect: two items touched
Duration: instantaneous
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: yes

Putting two similar items into the cold-iron cauldron, you laboriously invoke the spell. When you are done, only one item remains.

This spell transfers all magical properties from one item to another, destroying the first item while making the second item magical. The destination item must be non-magical, but capable of holding the enchantment to be transferred. In the case of arms and armor, it must be a masterwork item.

The magic item gets a saving throw to resist the effect, and if this succeeds, it is immune to further castings of this spell from this caster until the caster advances in caster level.

By burning a former body part or excrement from a creature, you can make a Knowledge skill check to identify that creature with a +10 circumstance bonus, and can do so unskilled. If this check succeeds, you learn of any special vulnerabilities or resistances the creature has to different forms of attack, including spell resistance, damage resistance, energy resistance, fast healing, regeneration, and other special features listed under defenses. If there is a way to bypass these defenses, you learn how to do so. This is in addition to the normal result of the Knowledge check.

True Seeing

Revision
Divination
Level alchemist 6, cleric/oracle 5, druid 7, inquisitor 5, magus 6, shaman 5, sorcerer/wizard 6, summoner 6, witch 6
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (an eye ointment that costs 250 gp)
Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 min./level
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance yes (harmless)

You confer on the subject the ability to see all things as they actually are. The subject sees through normal and magical darkness, notices secret doors hidden by magic, sees the exact locations of creatures or objects under blur or displacement effects, sees invisible creatures or objects normally, sees the true form of polymorphed, changed, or transmuted things, and negates the Disguise bonus conferred by illusions used to alter the appearance of items or creatures. Further, the subject can see into the Ethereal Plane (but not into extra-dimensional spaces). The range of true seeing conferred is 120 feet.

True seeing, however, does not penetrate solid objects. It in no way confers X-ray vision or its equivalent. It does not negate concealment, including that caused by fog and the like. True seeing does not help the viewer see through mundane disguises, spot creatures who are simply hiding, or notice secret doors hidden by mundane means. True seeing does not see freestanding illusions for what they are. In addition, the spell effects cannot be further enhanced with known magic, so one cannot use true seeing through a crystal ball or in conjunction with clairaudience/clairvoyance.

Unseen Musician

Illusion (figment)
Level: bard 0, cleric/oracle 2, mesmerist 1, psychic 2, shaman 0, sorcerer/wizard 2, spiritualist 1
Components: V, S
Cast Time: 1 standard action
Range: close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect: audio figment similar to a single performer.
Duration: 10 minute/level (D)
Saving Throw: Will disbelief
Spell Resistance: no

This creates an audible illusion of a musician; the only action it can perform is to play music as the caster directs. It can generate sound as if using a musical instrument of your choice. The caster must know the tune to be played, and the unseen musician gives only a passable performance, equivalent to a Perform check of 10. It can do the "aid other" action by providing musical accompaniment. It is mostly used as background music or as accompaniment for a singer or dancer. The unseen musician can only drone, hum, and play instruments; it cannot speak or sing intelligibly.

This is a revision.

A wall of thorns spell creates a barrier of very tough, pliable, tangled brush bearing needle-sharp thorns as long as a human finger. The wall provides cover and concealment to creatures inside it, while any intervening square of thorns provide full cover and total concealment.

Any ability to pass through overgrown areas unhindered, such as woodland stride, lets a creature pass through a wall of thorns at normal speed without taking damage, even if such abilities would not normally work on magically controlled plants.

Anyone in the effect's area when the spell is cast must make a Reflex save. If this save succeeds, the creature is inside the wall but is otherwise unaffected. If the save fails, the creature gains the grappled condition.

The thorns are difficult ground and cost 2 movement points per square to enter. Anyone moving into one or more squares of thorns must make a Reflex save as part of their move action. Creatures that fail take damage, lose their movement, and become grappled in the first square of thorns that they enter.

A grappled creature can break free by making a Reflex save as a standard action, taking damage if they fail.

Any creature damaged by the wall of thorns takes piercing damage equal to 25 minus the creature's AC. Creatures with an AC of 25 or higher take no damage from contact with the wall. The wall can only cause damage to a particular creature once per round.

A wall of thorns can be breached by slow work with edged weapons. Clearing a single square of thorns is a full-round action and requires an attack roll or Disable Device check (DC 10 + the caster level of the spell). Most energy effects cannot harm the barrier, but magical acid or fire can destroy it—the caster of the acid or fire spell makes a Will save against the wall of thorn's DC separately for each square covered by magical acid or fire to destroy that square.

The effects created by this spell move with a ship. (Skull & Shackles Player's Guide)

Web Tether

Conjuration (creation)
Level druid 0, magus 0, sorcerer/wizard 0, witch 0
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect strand 25 ft.+ 5 ft./2 levels long
Duration 1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw none
Spell Resistance yes

You create a single ropelike strand of spider web. One end of the strand is adhesive, the rest is not. You can shoot the strand out to the range of the spell to attach the sticky end as a ranged touch attack. If you ever let go of the strand, the spell ends. The strand has a hardness of 2 and 5 hit points. Web tether can be used as a rope with an adhesive grappling hook, or be shot at an enemy as a ranged touch attack to hinder their escape or pull them closer.

You can use the strand to do a drag combat maneuver against the target. An enemy attached to the web tether must make an opposed CMB check against you as a part of their move if they try to increase the distance between you. An ally adjacent to you can grab hold of the strand as an immediate action, which allows the ally to make drag maneuver and you can use your own or the ally's CMB to resist when the target tries to move away.

If any CMB check on a maneuver using the strand has a result of 20 or more, the strand breaks and the spell ends. If the target moves out of range, the spell ends.
