I guess that means I'll have to go ahead with Create Fetish Gear as a combination of Alter Clothing and Forcebonds. :P

you need to sneak in a 'safe word' subclause into the spell text.

Shape Smoke(Invocation)
“Smoke rings? Getta load of THIS-”
Level: 1
Type: Invocation
Range: 10 ft per level of experience. A 10 cubic foot area can be affected per level of experience.
Duration: 1d4 melees
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: 1
Effects:
The caster can manipulate smoke and steam to sculpt it into any desired shape, from a mushroom cloud to a snarling face. This can be used to entertain or to distract, and is often amongst the most basic spells taught new mages.

Personal Space Expansion(Invocation/Ritual)
(aka Magic Rumble Seat)
“Nobody’s sleeping on the floor tonight; we’re ALL getting the bed.”
Level: 6
Type: Invocation/Ritual
Range: Touch
Duration: 30 minutes per level of experience for the invocation, 6 hours per level of experience for the ritual
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: 20, 60 as a ritual
Effects:
This creates a form of dimensional pocket around a piece of furniture such as a chair or bed, and including vehicle seats and power armor, but NOT personal armor) that allows a single accommodation to comfortably fit an additional person, + one additional person at levels 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15. The people in the area of affect will be aware of their surroundings(it’s not like they’re being shunted into another universe), it’s just that the seat or bunk will appear to be able to fit them all comfortably for the duration of the spell. The spell can be cast as an invocation by touch, or, with fifteen minutes’ preparation, as a ritual for longer duration. Capacity is limited by what the seat/bed can normally fit(i.e., a Jotan is not going to be able to fit on a chair sized for a Dwarf).
Note that if applied to a vehicle, the additional people will still add mass and consume life support, so recalculate both accordingly. Also, if cast on a cockpit or work station,only one person will be able to work the controls; the other people are just bystanders/passengers. This spell also cannot be used to expand cargo space, only space for additional people(and what they may be wearing/carrying on them).

GM Option: Ludicrous Mages can cast this spell for only 16 PPE/54 PPE, and reportedly have two variants of the spell, Clown Car/House, and Mutual Suit(the latter spell applies to a set of clothes, allowing several people to simultaneously wear the same clothing).

You could rename this spell "Clown Car" as a Lud. magic spell.
EDIT: "7-21-17" I (DK) was looking through my printout of the Rifter 0 and came across a Clown Car Lud. Magic spell.

This would make a cool Fire Warlock spell, too.

If the mage first casts Cloud of Smoke and then casts Shape Smoke does the spell affect the whole cloud or can it be used to only manipulate parts of it? As in cause smoke images to appear and move around inside the larger smoke cloud?

Since in my PoV the player already can shape the effect area of the CoS spell, the Shape Smoke spell would be for controlling natural smoke and other's CoS spells.

I'd say Shape Smoke WOULD shape one's own CoM, but with greater detail than they would with just CoS.

Globe of Daylight, Extended
Level: One Three
Range: Near self or up to 30 feet (9.1 m) away.
Duration: 3 minutes days per level of experience.
Saving Throw: None.
P.P.E.: Two Eight
A small globe or sphere of true daylight is magically created. The light is bright enough to light up a 12 foot (3.6 m) area per each level of its creator's experience. Because it is daylight, it can ward off vampires and most other types of undead and demons who fear or are hurt by sunlight, keeping them at bay just beyond the edge of light. The creator of the globe can mentally move it along with himself, or send it up to thirty feet (9.1 m) ahead. The maximum speed at which the globe can travel is equal to a speed attribute of 12.

You really have to work on removing the 'scaffolding' of the original spell you copy-pasta'ed/used here for your own self-reference, and in any case, I'd consider DAYS of duration to be too much of a stretch for 8 PPE(hours at best). As much as I like parallel developments of the same concepts(it's a big megaverse, after all), this doesn't really have enough new ideas/additions to make it much of an extension on the original.
First time tentative toe-in-the-water in magic spell development? Might want to think of extra ways to give Globe of Daylight some extra umph/jazz to really make it an 'Extended' version.

Rather expensive for an illusion spell, which is what I'd consider this. Then again, with the duration, that might work(I'd up it, though, to two hours per level of experience).
I'd also be more circumspect with the description of 'Royalty' and 'Monarch'...this might not have the desired effect if, for instance, everybody around was part of a matriarchy or were devout communists.
I'd try to rework what the person is perceived as with an eye towards a more generalized idea of bigwig-edness, or authority. Like take aspects of the HU power 'Divine Aura' to make the person this spell is cast on radiate the opposite of an Aura of Doom...the character just exudes charisma, confidence, and authority even when trying to lay low, his clothing looks somehow of a higher quality and cut, even when it's rags, and the person sounds educated and erudite, even if belching. Good case scenario? People are more inclined to listen to the person, give them the benefit f the doubt, let them go to the head of the line, and be more polite and deferential to the person. Bad case scenario is if everybody turns to the person in a crisis situation, expecting leadership, and the person is a yutz, or, if the crowd is ant-authoritarian, they lynch him("KILL THE TSAR!!!").

It is more like the charm & dominate spells then a illusion spell.
I know it is a bare bones spell text. but what was written was the idea I had in total. Didn't think about any side effects cause was dead tired when I wrote it.

The reason I put the PPE cost so high is the range of the spell/ which does not have a LoS limit in it.

Now note, that the spell does not say that those effected think that the target of the spell think that he/she is 'their' monarch…just 'a' monarch.

Yep, an Aura of Authority spell would look ver similar. …..so similar that I might as well post it out.

Aura of Authority
"Boss, Boss!"

Level: 7
Range: one other by touch
Effects Range: 500 feet per level
Duration: 2 hours
Saving Throw: -4 to the standard roll.
PPE: 102

Makes everyone within the effect range that fail their save vs magic believe the target of the spell is the person 'In Charge'. Those effected will follow the instructions of the individual as if they believe that person has the authority to be 'in command'. The caster of the spell is immune to the magic.

Okay, that works better.

As is, if the people around the target had no concept of what a 'monarch' is, it would fall flat. An authority or even a celebrity? THat works better.

There is already an existing "upgrade" to the Globe of Daylight spell- it is an Air Warlock spell in Mysteries of Magic called "Globe of True Sunlight." That would be another good spell to review when considering what this upgrade to Globe of Daylight should be.

For those people with no concept of a monarch it would just turn out that <this person is very important>. *shrugs* it is not like the spell is making the effected think the person has authority over them.

After thinking about it a while I would think the AoR would be more for the PF setting, while AoA would be more for other settings.

That spell is a bit of a double edged sword is it not? Some people just want to kill those in power, or kidnap them for ransom, etc.

[the AoR spell] :twisted: yup

Got a "Sodium Block" spell here that changes salt into it components to make the sodium block. Which has different sort of 'user be ware'.

Even anarchists have leaders. Though, admittedly, if you already know who your leadership is, and you're utterly totally devoted to them, I imagine you'd be less likely to be swayed by this spell, especially if your leader was in the immediate vicinity. On the other hand, if your leader was also affected, you might decide the person HE was looking up to was worthy of your attention, and thus transfer of loyalties.
Or, if you were a TOTAL wackjob, you might decide your leader just betrayed you all.
That's provided you didn't just save versus magic in the first place.

The Aura of Royalty spell Only make the target of the spell look to be a monarch to the effected. What it does not do is make the effected think that the target is Their monarch.

Fertility(Invocation/Ritual)
Level: 5
Type: (Invocation/Ritual)
Range: Touch
Duration: Two hours per level of experience if cast as an invocation, effectively permanent if cast as a ritual
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 50 as an Invocation, 100 as a ritual. Biomancers can cast this spell at HALF PPE cost.
Effects:
This spell increases the likelihood of successful sexual conception, raising the normal chance of a pregnancy by 20% per level of experience(10% if the subject of the spell was previously considered low-virile). This spell also renders chemical contraception measures ineffective.
Casting this spell as a ritual makes the effect more or less permanent, as long as the subject lives, and remains biologically viable as a parent.
Though normally used as a medical spell, it has also been known to be used as a curse on more than occasion(“Hah! I can think of no more poetic way to end your days of adventuring and meddling in my affairs than to tie you down with a dozen, no, knowing you, a HUNDRED, paternities! Let the hordes of expectant mothers, angry parents, jilted lovers, and cuckholded husbands occupy your time.! Oh, and let’s not forget all the screaming brats! Enjoy changing diapers, oh-so-noble swordsman! Bwhahahaahahhahahahhhaha!!!”)

Bubble Wall(Ocean Magic)(Invocation)
Level: 3
Type: Invocation
Range: 100 ft +10 ft per level of experience. Creates a curtain-wall 20 ft long and 5 ft deep per level of experience. Generally, the height the bubbles can rise and still remain effective is 1d6x100 ft, before they peter out.
Duration: 1 minute per level of experience
Saving Throw: None(see below)
PPE Cost: 8
Effects:
Creates a roiling, turbulent curtain of rising bubbles that most sea animals will not cross. Gill breathers attempting to pass through the wall must roll versus magic or be stunned, -1d4 to initiative, strike, dodge, and parry for 1d4 melees (the effect is akin to getting a hard shot of compressed air through the ears or straight up the nose).
The violent bubbling makes a hash of sonar readings through it. -60% to sonar rolls, while sonar-guided weapons are -10 to strike.
Also has the effect of stunning dolphins, whales, and other creatures using natural sonar and echo location. These creatures are disoriented/stunned (-10 to strike, parry, dodge, and lose initiative)for 1d4 melees.
The Bubble Wall can be shaped as a straight line or curved around the caster(or a target, such as a school of fish) as long as it falls within the casting range.

Spell of Legend
Create Life
Range: 10 ft
Duration: Permanent
Saving Throw:Not applicable
PPE: 1600 (Half as a Ritual, and see below)

This Legendary spell was created by a wizard seeking to emulate the power of the gods. Though he succeeded the spell has a heavy price requiring the sacrifice of HALF the wizards HP and SDC (or MDC) in addition to the massive PPE required. This damage can NOT be healed by magical means, its loss a sacrifice to create life. The minion is designed using either a monster, animal, player race or lesser supernatural as the base. The mage can boost two stats by 2d6 points, bestow the creature with 2 of his natural abilities (if he has them), and either 4 psionics (ISP is M.E. x3) or be given 2 magic powers ( can be performed twice a day, equal to 4th lvl spells). If performed as a Ritual this spell requires 8 hours of uninterrupted casting as he slowly bleeds his blood into the spell and molds the being within. whether cast as a ritual or as a spell the life created by this spell views the mage as its parent/creator and acts accordingly.

so...no idea if anyone has done this before but my spellcasters are jealous of the gods getting all the fun...and may have made this spell at great risk to their lives...or not...they couldn't be found to comment

Might add a perm PPE sacrifice to. In addition to the loss of the HP&SDC.
While not a token (2d6) amount, but not 50% ether.
.
.
.
Or maybe the spell takes all of the mage's PPE….since a deity might have tampered with the spell because of the mage's hubris (stupid pride) in creating the spell.

If i was being totally in line with rifts current magic i probably would. But I've always felt permanent PPE sacrifices are...a bit much. If you feel like it should go for it, but I personally object to permanent PPE loss. Maybe halve his available PPE until he recovers his HP/SDC? he after all isn't a god so it seems like am acceptable but severe loss.

But he is already paying double what a god does unless he goes through a long term ritual (which i also feel like should require some cost to make but wasn't sure what to put down), i based this on a power from dragons and gods

Second Wind(Invocation)
Level: 2
Type: Invocation
Range: 50 ft and covers a 5 ft wide area per level of experience
Duration: 1 melee
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: 4(2 for Air Elemental Warlocks)
Effects:
This creates a brief, bracing, refreshingly cool breeze that disipates smoke and gases, but also provides temporary relief from fatigue, restoring 1d8 points’ worth of P.E.(these will last until used up again, but do not add to a person's rated P.E.). It will also clear stress-related aches and pains, and generally pep the person up, allowing them to work/run longer.
This spell can only be cast on a person once per 24 hours. A second casting will only provide 1d4 points of P.E. relief, and a third casting will result in nothing at all(except dust-off or smoke dispersal), and should not be considered a substitute for real rest/sustenance/medical relief.

can we get a Third Wind? or rather now that I think about it is there a limit to the number of winds you can catch?

Is the relief temporary for the 1 melee or does the wind last for one melee and the relief provided is permanent (as in lasts till you wear out again). And is there a limit to the effect of multiple casts? or can you be refreshed indefinitely.

Cool, and so I was inspired by all this talk of wind to put one of my personal problems into a spell

Long Winded(Invocation)
Level: 4
Type: Invocation
Range: 20 ft
Duration: 1 minute +1 minute per lvl of the mage
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 8
Effects:
This spell causes the person targeted to become INCREDIBLY long winded, requiring a much long time to reach the point of his speech and get ideas across. Any attempt by this person to communicate is lengthened and delayed turning even simple warnings such as "STOP!" into such lines as "My fellow soldier ceases your actions at this moment for ahead of you is danger!", delaying any communication by 1d4 actions in battle as the person launches into a lengthy, and heartfelt communication that may or may not stray off topic midway before finally returning to the point. "My fellow soldier ceases your actions at this moment, why you ask? Do you even know the purpose of asking questions? If Karl Prosek was here would you ask why or would you offer to shine his boots? I'm not our mighty leader but still its an interesting point to ponder, would you shine his boots? oh and beware for ahead of you is danger! Ah but I was too late, now if only i'd said my point a little bit faster poor Bitsy would still be alive, poor Bitsy, the most unfortunate new grunt in the line". This does NOT prevent the target from fighting or acting as normal, though any attempts to listen to others or cast magic will be greatly impaired. This will double cast times of any magic while under the influence of the spell. This spell also impacts social interactions and speeches given, effectively halving the percentage chance of social skills, or the effects of MA as well as making any speech or interaction far more boring and long winded than it should be.

I have no idea if this is remotely good or not, I can't even think of anything remotely like it in the book except maybe a silence? need to find that now

sounds more like a Lud. Magic spell, or from the same mage that cerated the R9.5 spells.

Lud. Magic (note the abbreviation): there are some spells made for it in this topic. Sort of hard to miss if looking for them.

Lud. Magic….is clowning magic…and is a specialty magic.
The invocations in rifter 9.5….You're It (as in 'tag'), Base, banana peel (as in slipping on a…), speaking in tongues (opposite of the tongues spell what make the spoken word of the target gibberish), the deviator (temp. alinement change), shout, ears of the bat.

Liquify PPE(Invocation)
Level: 9
Type: Invocation
Range: Self
Duration: Varies; depending on how the liquid PPE is stored.
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: Varies. 55 PPE baseline, +2 PPE per 1 PPE liquified under normal conditions. It costs 60 PPE baseline, and 1 PPE per 1 point liquified on a Ley Line, and costs only 30 PPE baseline, and 1 PPE per 1 point liquified at a nexus point.
Effects:
This spell allows the caster to convert PPE into a stabilized liquid form. This allows the spellcaster to store magical energy for longer periods of time, though the liquid state is not permanent, and evaporates away over time. This provides a cheaper(PPE cost-wise), if shorter-term, alternative to the more expensive Create Talisman spell as a PPE reservoir. Liquified PPE is a light blue-green or gold liquid that seems to glow. 10 PPE occupies the same volume as an ounce of water, and a container of some sort MUST be ready to receive the liquid when it is created.
Liquid PPE has an effective shelf-life as follows:
Paper cartons, clay, metal, or plastic containers: 2 days per level of experience.
Glass Containers: 3 days per level of experience.
MDC Metal Containers: 4 days per level of experience.
MDC Glass Containers: 6 days per level of experience.
Silver-lined Containers: 10 days per level of experience.
Specially enchanted containers can hold the liquid PPE for longer, or even in a permanent state.

Liquid PPE CANNOT be frozen.

Liquid PPE can be used to replenish magic users’ PPE reserves simply by drinking it. It is also useful as a stock component in potions, healing baths, and other magical concoctions. For non-magic users drinking the liquid PPE, there is no effect other than a tingling feeling, a mild sense of well-being, and possible mild hallucinations if a quart or more is drunk(save versus magic or be effectively stoned for 1d4 hours), though the imbiber will show up to those with the ability to sense magic as having a much higher PPE than they should, at least until the liquid passes through their system. Psi-stalkers and other PPE-utilizers can also drink the liquid and derive nourishment from it. Splashing the liquid on vampires and other beings susceptible to water has NO effect.

Well of Magic
Level: 15
Type: Invocation (ritual)
Range: Touch
Duration: 10 years + 1 years per level of the mage or permanent
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: Varies. 550 PPE +1 PPE per PPE the well is to contain at a nexus, 1100 +1 Per 1 PPE in well on leyline, 2200 +2 per 1 PPE in well elsewhere

Effects: This spell was inspired by liquefy PPE. It uses powerful magic to create a pool or well of Liquefied PPE that is replenished daily at dawn. The PPE can be used by anyone with access to the well and will work as explained under liquify PPE, and will lose potency only once removed from the well. This spell is sometimes used by powerful beings or communities of mages to provide a ready source of power. Only one of these wells may be on a nexus, one per 10 miles of leyline or one per 20 miles of nonmagical land or else the wells powers to replenish are HALVED per every extra well made. The well can still hold the max amount of energy but replenishes slower. To create a permanent well requires special materials including the remains of creatures of magic and blood sacrifice. Usually the creatures of magic are worked into the well as it is physically constructed, not a requirement for the nonpermanent well which will form on its own, usually requires something along the lines of a dragon or hundreds of the smaller fey or similar beings, the blood of a god or supernatural intelligence will also work. Then at least 1 HP per 10 PPE in the well must be sacrificed. By the end the well is empowered and becomes a near indestructible existence akin to rune weapons with a life of its own, and in time may develop true sentience and power of its own.

Well (ha ha) i couldn't resist writing this

I didn't realize President Warren Harding was a mage...he coined the term 'bloviation' to describe this sort of speech...

Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: Varies. 550 PPE +1 PPE per PPE the well is to contain at a nexus, 1100 +1 Per 1 PPE in well on leyline, 2200 +2 per 1 PPE in well elsewhere

Effects: This spell was inspired by liquefy PPE. It uses powerful magic to create a pool or well of Liquefied PPE that is replenished daily at dawn. The PPE can be used by anyone with access to the well and will work as explained under liquify PPE, and will lose potency only once removed from the well. This spell is sometimes used by powerful beings or communities of mages to provide a ready source of power. Only one of these wells may be on a nexus, one per 10 miles of leyline or one per 20 miles of nonmagical land or else the wells powers to replenish are HALVED per every extra well made. The well can still hold the max amount of energy but replenishes slower. To create a permanent well requires special materials including the remains of creatures of magic and blood sacrifice. Usually the creatures of magic are worked into the well as it is physically constructed, not a requirement for the nonpermanent well which will form on its own, usually requires something along the lines of a dragon or hundreds of the smaller fey or similar beings, the blood of a god or supernatural intelligence will also work. Then at least 1 HP per 10 PPE in the well must be sacrificed. By the end the well is empowered and becomes a near indestructible existence akin to rune weapons with a life of its own, and in time may develop true sentience and power of its own.

Well (ha ha) i couldn't resist writing this


I approve. :ok:

Well (ha ha) i couldn't resist writing this

*yells in frustration and just has to rewrite this*

Well of Magic
Level: 15
Type: Invocation (ritual)
Range: Touch. [On a existing container if cast as invocation.]
Duration: 1 year per level of the casting mage (10 years + 1 year per level of the mage as a ritual.)
Saving Throw: None
PPE Cost: Varies. 550 PPE at a nexus, 1100 if on leyline, 2200 if the well is created anywhere else. As a ritual, costing 50% more then invocation cost. A part of the ritual is the building of the catch basin for the spell.

Effects: This spell uses powerful magic to create a pool (or well) of Liquefied PPE that replenishes the pool daily at dawn. The PPE can be used by anyone with access to the well, and will lose potency only once removed from the well. How long it can be stored is dependant on the type of container it stored in. (See the following table.) This spell is sometimes used by powerful beings or communities of mages to provide a ready source of power. However, only one of these wells may be on a nexus, one per 10 miles of leyline or one per 20 miles of nonmagical land. If another well is placed within the teritory of the existing well, the amount produced by all the wells is HALVED for every extra well within the teritorial range. Even thou, each well can hold up to it's maximum capacity even thou it replenishes slower. The rate of replenishment and the maximum holding capacity are determand by an additional cost to the base cost of 1 PPE per point of PPE repentished and held. Double that if not on a LeyLine or LeyLine Nexus.

To create a permanent well requires special materials including the remains of creatures of magic as blood sacrifice and life force sacrifice from the casting mage(s). The creature's remains are worked into the well as it is physically constructed. The amount of Creatures of magic needing to be killed for the creation of the well is based of their base PPE. 600 to 700 base PPE of CoM are needed. The blood of a god or supernatural intelligence will also work as well as their blood is already almost liquid PPE. The life force sacrifice is at least 1 HP per 10 PPE (fractions are rounded up) in the well must be sacrificed. (When cast as a ritual each mage participating looses at least one Hit Point. Otherwise, the HP cost is divided equally between the mages within the ritual.) When this process has been compleated the well is empowered and becomes a indestructible akin to rune weapons. Only vunerable to magic that can destroy rune weapons. In time the well may develop a sentience of its own and able to use the PPE it produces one it's own to create magic.

All wells made via this magic are anchored to the site at which they are enchanted at.

Liquid PPE, which can never be frozen, has an effective shelf-life as follows:
Paper cartons, clay, metal, or plastic containers: 4 days.
Glass Containers: 6 days.
MDC Metal Containers: 8 days.
MDC Glass Containers: 12 days.
Silver-lined Containers: 20 days.
Specially enchanted containers: can hold the liquid PPE for 1 month per level of the mage, or even permanently if specilly made for holding the liquid PPE by an alchemist.

Liquid PPE can be used to replenish magic users’ PPE reserves simply by drinking it. It is also useful as a stock component in potions, healing baths, and other magical concoctions. For non-magic users drinking the liquid PPE, there is no effect other than a tingling feeling, a mild sense of well-being, and possible mild hallucinations if a quart or more is drunk (save versus magic or be effectively stoned for 1d4 hours). Though the imbiber will show up, to those with the ability to sense magic, as having a much higher PPE than they should. At least until the liquid passes through their system.
Psi-stalkers and other PPE-utilizers can also drink the liquid and derive nourishment from it. Splashing the liquid on vampires and other beings susceptible to water has NO effect.

A additional catch basin can be constructed by a alchemist to hold any overflow Liquid PPE produced by the well. Otherwise any overflow liquid PPE will soak into the ground promoting the growth of the plants in the area. As such abandoned wells are concealed by overgrowth that has grown up around it. And is likely to contain mystic plants, such as those listed in the rifts england and elsewhere within the published books.

Ah, parallel spell development...the bane of the intensely private culture of most schools of magic!

Bond Magic

“We are closer than close, we are two, yet one, and through the bonding of our souls, we are greater together than we are alone.”

Bond Magic is a school of ritual that may be related to Tattoo Magic and Demon Binding, but may also have come about from studies of Familiars and the linkage they share with their masters. Bond Magic creates a semi-permanent linkage between two individuals, allowing them to share certain abilities or information, to varying degree. Depending on the ritual used, the Mystic Bond can be mutual, with both members able to draw mutually on each other, or it can be decidedly one-sided, with one member of the Bond being ‘dominant’. Some Bonds have limited range and duration, while others seem to take advantage of the phenomenon of ‘quantum entanglement’, and can last as long as the members of the Bond do, and reach across space/time without limit.
Bond Magic can be used to seal a mutual friendship, alliance, or marriage, or it can be used to enforce a penal probation or slave contract.
A Bonding Ritual frequently involves the mingling of blood in a ritual circle, and leaves both members marked with a distinctive tattoo or bond mark. However, shorter duration and lower-powered Bonds are also possible that mark the participants with much less distinctive markings.

Bond Limitations:
An individual can carry one Bond with a different person for every 5 points of their M.E. Carrying any more beyond that is possible, but strains the person’s mental endurance. Each additional Bond beyond the ME limit imposes a cumulative -1 to save versus psionics, insanity, and Horror Factor.


Breaking a Bond
Breaking a Bond is possible, but difficult. Note that if one member of the Bond attempts to break it, the other Bond-partner will instantly know that an effort is being made.
- The easiest way is if the dominant member of a one-sided Bond decides to end it. By voluntarily reciting encantations of cancellation and meditating on breaking the Bond, the dominant member relinquishes their Bond.
- Two-way Bonds may be broken by one or both members. If only one member wants the Bond broken, it becomes a battle of wills with the other member(s), ME vs ME.
-The spell Thrall Breaker will permanently break a Bond spell. However, if the Bond is mutually voluntary, the Bond saves as standard against being broken by a third party using the spell.
-The spell Sunder Bond(see below) is designed specifically to break Bonds.

-(Psionic) Mind Block and AutoDefense MindBlock can temporarily break Bond-links.

TEMPORARY(Evocation) Bonds are +1 to break.
PERMANENT(Ritual) Bonds are -1 to break.

Optional:
*Feedback---Feedback is a risk in improperly insulated Bond magic. It is the possibility of psyhic damage inflicted in one member of a Bond bleeding over it to affect the other people in it. Thus, a Mental Shock attack on one person might carry over to affect the others. Note that in the cases of magic and psionics that have a saving roll, the other people in the Bond get a save versus the attack, and in any event the effects will be HALF that as done to the original target of the attack.


Bond of Communication
“...two cartons eggs, one gallon milk, bread, cheese, and something from the mystic deli...right! Got it!”

This Bond forms the equivalent of a closed circuit line of communication between the members. This Bond CAN be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 8th
Type: Invocation or Ritual
Range: 10 miles per level of experience for the invocation, effectively unlimited for the ritual.
Duration: 1 day per level of experience if cast as an invocation, permanent if cast as a ritual.
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 40 for an invocation, 80 if a ritual
Effects:
The members of this Bond can converse with one another as if via telepathic speech.
This Bond can be cast as a temporary invocation or a longer-lived ritual.

Bond of Empathy
“Gotta go, boss, something just made my partner go gibbering bannanas!”

This Bond allows the members of it to know how each other is feeling. This Bond CAN be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 8th
Type: Invocation or Ritual
Range: 6 miles per level of experience for the invocation, effectively unlimited for the ritual.
Duration: 1 day per level of experience if cast as an invocation, permanent if cast as a ritual.
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 40 for an invocation, 80 if a ritual
Effects:
The members of this Bond can sense the feelings and mental state of the others as if via the Empathy psionic ability.
This Bond can be cast as a temporary invocation or a longer-lived ritual.

Bond of Karma
“Because you felt SOME guilt over this...this travesty, -doctor-, you will not be executed as many would demand you be. You will be released, instead, so that your skills as a physician may help heal people. But if you -ever - break faith with your oath as a healer, I WILL KNOW, and I will not be so merciful in my judgement!”

The Bond of Karma lets members of the Bond know if the other member has done things contrary to the first member’s alignment. This Bond is often forced upon another as a probationary measure, a criminal being bonded to a more powerful ‘minder’. This Bond CAN be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 9th
Type: Invocation or Ritual
Range: 5 miles per level of experience for the invocation, effectively unlimited for the ritual.
Duration: 1 day per level of experience if cast as an invocation, permanent if cast as a ritual.
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 50 for an invocation, 100 if a ritual
Effects:
The members of this Bond will sense if and when the other commits an act contrary to the first member’s alignment. Thus a Principled character Bonded to a Miscreant character will sense when the latter has committed a crime, while the latter will sense when the former has committed an act of heroism or charity. This Bond can be FORCED on another person.

Bond of Senses
“You gotta open your eyes sometime, Albar, and when you do, I’ll see what you see, and I’ll know where you are.”

This Bond CAN be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 9th
Type: Ritual only
Range: 6 miles per level of experience for the invocation, effectively unlimited for the ritual.
Duration: 1 day per level of experience if cast as an invocation, permanent if cast as a ritual.
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 60 for an invocation, 120 if a ritual
Effects:
This Bond allows the members to co-opt the other’s senses, to see and sense what the other member is at the time. This Bond has two forms, specified at the time of the Bonding ritual; a MUTUAL form in which the partners in the Bond can sense what each other are sensing, or an EXCLUSIVE form in which the flow of sensory information is one-way to one member of the Bond.
This Bond(usually the exclusive form) can be FORCED on another person.
Note that members viewing the sensory feed from the other member will be distracted by the incoming information; while looking through the other’s senses, the person will be at HALF normal initiative, perception, and all other bonuses when dealing with their own immediate surroundings.

Bond of Life
“You are NOT dying on me, Rhianna d’ Tesos! ‘Til death do us part’, remember? I want to share my life with you, literally!!”
This Bond allows members to share a common pool of health, transfering life essence to each other and bolstering each others’ lifeforce. This Bond CAN be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 10th
Type: Invocation or Ritual
Range: 5 miles per level of experience for the invocation, effectively unlimited for the ritual.
Duration: 1 day per level of experience if cast as an invocation, permanent if cast as a ritual.
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 80 for an invocation, 160 if a ritual
Effects:
This spell enables members of the pair to transfer Hit Points to their partner. The donating partner can donate all but ONE of their H.P.(they must retain at least ONE point).
If one of the members of the Bond dies anyway, the survivor gains back the lost Hit Points normally, but permanently loses HALF of them.
Note: This Bond must be MUTUAL, and cannot be forced on an unwilling participant. Even if a successful Bond of Life is established, the participants may withhold transfering life essence to one another.

Bond of Vengeance
“By Blood are we bound, until the death of the vermin Lord Calafax!”
This is a Bond that can be taken by more than two people, and is taken as part of an oath of vengeance against a particular individual. This Bond CANNOT be combined with other Bonds.
Level: 12th
Type: Ritual only
Range: Effectively unlimited
Duration: 1 year per level of experience of the caster
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 250 +30 per additional member beyond 2.
Effects:
This MUTUAL Bond requires something from the body of the target of the vengeance, such as a sample of blood, pieces of hair, nail clippings, etc, that are burned in the center of the mystic circle, and the participants clasp cut and bleeding hands over the fire.
Members of the Bond of Vengeance enjoy a +2 to Strike and Parry when engaged in combat against the target of their revenge. They will also sense the presence of their target within a 500 ft radius.
Those in the Bond will instantly know if another member of the Bond has died, or whether they have succeeded in fulfilling the Bond Oath, as the Bond will be dispelled for all of them upon the death of the target.
The dark side of this Bond is that it is a Bond Oath of VENGEANCE, and it carries a compulsion aspect. If a member of this Oath is in a position to take vengeance against the target of the oath, but, for whatever reason, refuses, they must roll versus the averaged M.E. of the other members of the Bond. Upon a failed roll, the dissenter MUST carry through the act of vengeance/continue the pursuit.

Bond of Power
“Tina, I gotta borrow your mindreading abilities for a moment; I think this guy’s trying to scam me.”

This Bond allows members to use the powers of their partners in the Bond. This covers magic, psionics, and superpowers.
Level: 11th
Type: Ritual only
Range: Effectively unlimited
Duration: 1 year per level of experience of the caster
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 300
Effects:
This MUTUAL spell allows members to use the psionic, magical, or super abilities of another member, provided they have the permission of that member. PPE and ISP draw comes from the ‘donor’ member FIRST, though if the ‘borrower has PPE and ISP of their own, they can kick that in to use the powers/abilities as well.
The ‘donor’ may withhold or cut off the use of their powers at will.

Bond of Subservience(Domination)
“I, Llasana A’han, do pledge myself, body and soul, to Ranamas Asario, the Black Stallion of Neran, my will to bend to his, my powers that I have abused, now his to command. May the Winds of Han serve him to greater and better purpose than I have done with them.”

This Bond is a one-sided version of the Bond of Power that allows the dominant member of the Bond to absorb and use the powers of the subservient member. This spell is often used to bind the powers of captured mages and psychics(whose cooperation with the ritual is typically coerced, although there are a few cases of zealots voluntarily giving up control of their powers to their perceived leige).
Level: 13th
Type: Ritual only
Range: Effectively unlimited
Duration: 1 year per level of experience of the caster
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 360
Effects:
Similar to the Bond of Power, the Bond of Subservience allows the dominant member to transfer and use any special powers of the subservient member. PPE and ISP draw comes from the subservient member FIRST, though if the ‘master’ has PPE and ISP of their own, they can kick that in to use the powers/abilities as well.
The subservient member may only use their original powers if the dominant member allows them to. This must be a conscious decision on the part of the dominant member, and they can re-assert control whenever they wish.
If the subservient member of the Bond is killed, the dominant member loses the powers the Bond allows access to.
If the subservient member of the Bond is weakened or sick, the transferred power is also affected; any condition that takes the subservient member down to 1 Hit Point
If the dominant member of the Bond is slain, the subservient member gets their former powers back, but range, power, and available PPE and ISP will be permanently reduced by 25%.

Bond of Control(Domination)
“I warned you, Forsyth, what would happen if you disobeyed me! Now I’m going to have to do this myself, through you!”
Another Domination Bond, Bond of Control allows the ‘master’ of the Bond to take control of the other member, similar to a Domination spell.
Level: 14th
Type: Ritual only
Range: Effectively unlimited
Duration: 1 year per level of experience of the caster
Saving Throw: Standard
PPE Cost: 400
Effects:
The recipient of this spell is effectively POSSESSED by the ‘master’ member of the Bond and their body becomes a puppet of the other intellect. However, the dominant member can only maintain control for 10 minutes per level of experience, + the dominant member’s M.E. in minutes, at a time. During this time, the dominant is oblivious to his own surroundings. The dominant member can re-establish control after 5 minutes out of the circuit.

Sunder Bond
“What was once two, then one, now is two again! What bound, is now cut!”
This ritual was developed specifically to break Bond spells.
Low level and ‘young’ Bonds are fairly easy to break, but the more powerful and older Bonds are more resistant to being broken.
Level: 6
Type: Ritual
Range: Touch
Duration: Ritual takes fifteen minutes of preparation. Effects are permament.
Saving Throw: Bonds get a +1 to save versus this spell for every three levels of experience(average them between the members of the Bond) of their existence.
PPE Cost: 36
Effects:
The ritual itself involves the members of the Bond standing in separate magic circles. connected by a single line. The spell caster summons the magic, then cuts the line between the two circles, cutting the Bond.
The Sundering ritual may be tried once a week.


Assimilation(Spell of Legend)

“Nice of you to let me out every once and a while. It’s cold and dark and boring inside your soul. What do you need me to do now, fatso? Wash your chariot? Clip your toenails? Kill your in-laws?”

Level: Spell of Legend
Type: Ritual
Range: Touch(Ritual Circles)
Duration: 5 years per level of experience of the caster
Saving Throw: Normal beings get no save, Magic Users and Psychics get a +1 to save versus the ritual, Supernatural creatures such as sphinxes save at +6 . God-beings and Alien Intelligences are IMMUNE to this ritual. CANNOT be used on cyborgs or robots.
PPE Cost: 600
Effects:
This extremely powerful Bond ritual effectively turns one member of it into an energy form that is absorbed into the dominant member of the Bond. The dominant master can draw upon the absorbed member’s powers and PPE/ISP base at will, and can cast their assimilated slave out of their bodies and materialize them to act as a Summoned beast.
A rematerialized assimilatee has all the actions/attacks/bonuses they had when they were absorbed, and their powers, but is constrained by the directives of their master. Note that while a summoned assimilatee may appear to be dressed, it is a magic illusion; they are limited to their innate physical powers and characteristics. For all other intents and purposes, they are naked, though if the summonee has the skills, and the equipment is available, they can don and use such gear as power armor.
The enslaved being CAN fight the directives of its master, especially if the directed actions go against their alignment, but is at -2 in saves against the dominant will.
A Dominant can forcibly Assimilate and hold one other being per every 10 points of M.E. . Going over the limit is possible, but for each additional being so assimilated there is the risk of the assimilated being able to mentally overpower their host and break free. Once a month, an assimilatee can match their will(M.E.) against their host-captor’s. Upon successfully breaking the hold, the assimilatee is still trapped inside the host, but now no longer has to obey their orders and lend them their stregth/power. The now-disconnected former assimilatee can make a second roll versus magic; a successful roll here means the assimilated person now rematerializes outside the host in a physical body.
Using the spell Thrall Breaker on a person with an Assimilated bondsbeing is possible, and causes them to rematerialize in a physical body.

Body Swap(Spell of Legend)
“Like slipping into a luxury car...you really took good care of yourself, Tarsos, and I appreciate that! Thanks! Have fun with my old clunker...because it’s not going to last much longer!”

Type: Ritual
Range: One designated target within the transferral matrix(no more than 10 ft distance)
Duration: Permanent
Saving Throw: Normal beings get no save, Magic Users and Psychics get a +1 to save versus the ritual, Supernatural creatures such as sphinxes save at +6 . God-beings and Alien Intelligences are IMMUNE to this ritual. CANNOT be used on cyborgs or robots.
PPE Cost: 800
Effects:
This horrible mind transferral ritual is used to swap bodies between two people. Typically this is an involuntary procedure for one of the participants, though sometimes cults use this spell to extend the life of a leader, with a willing cultist sacrificing sacrificing their continued youth, health, and physical identity.
The good news is that the ritual can be reversed at HALF the preparation time and PPE cost as the original transferral, provided that both bodies are present.

Thanks. I was stepping onto unfamiliar ground with this one.
I'm also working on a Bond Mage(sounds kinky, don't it?).

Comment: "Your inferiority complex might be justified."
So Bond Magic starts at level 8 or are there lesser spells you haven't added yet? If the Bond Mage starts at level 8, that would be specialization. If so, would there be spells a mage would have to study to prepare to be a Bond Mage?

The Bond Mage, which I'm still working the particulars out on, will be a specialized class that learns PPe-discounted Bond Magic from the get-go, but in general those spells that allow one to mentally link/commune/influence others at a distance are good runner-ups for rank and file magic users.
Spells like Ley Line Transmission, Domination, Instill Knowledge, Compulsion, Memory Bank, and Words of Truth are all good examples.
