Legend Lore (M) (F)
Divination See text SRD
- Brd 4, Knowledge 7, Oracle 6, Sor/Wiz 6 V, S, M, F
See text Personal General
Target: You
Focus: Four strips of ivory (worth 50 gp each) formed into a rectangle.
Materials: Incense worth at least 250 gp.

Lets you learn tales about a person, place, or thing.

Legend lore brings to your mind legends about an important person, place, or thing. If the person or thing is at hand, or if you are in the place in question, the casting time is only 1d4x10 minutes. If you have only detailed information on the person, place, or thing, the casting time is 1d10 days, and the resulting lore is less complete and specific (though it often provides enough information to help you find the person, place, or thing, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time). If you know only rumors, the casting time is 2d6 weeks, and the resulting lore is vague and incomplete (though it often directs you to more detailed information, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time).

During the casting, you cannot engage in other than routine activities: eating, sleeping, and so forth. When completed, the divination brings legends (if any) about the person, place, or things to your mind. These may be legends that are still current, legends that have been forgotten, or even information that has never been generally known. If the person, place, or thing is not of legendary importance, you gain no information. As a rule of thumb, characters who are 11th level and higher are legendary, as are the sorts of creatures they contend with, the major magic items they wield, and the places where they perform their key deeds.

Transmutation 1 standard action SRD
None - No Arc 2, Shu 2, Sor/Wiz 2 V, S, F
1 min./level (D) Personal or close 5 minutes
Target: You or one willing creature or one object (total weight up to 100 lb./level)

Subject moves up and down at your direction.

Levitate allows you to move yourself, another creature, or an object up and down as you wish. A creature must be willing to be levitated, and an object must be unattended or possessed by a willing creature. You can mentally direct the recipient to move up or down as much as 20 feet each round; doing so is a move action. You cannot move the recipient horizontally, but the recipient could clamber along the face of a cliff, for example, or push against a ceiling to move laterally (generally at half its base land speed).

A levitating creature that attacks with a melee or ranged weapon finds itself increasingly unstable; the first attack has a 1 penalty on attack rolls, the second 2, and so on, to a maximum penalty of 5. A full round spent stabilizing allows the creature to begin again at 1.

Target: Object touched

Object shines like a torch.

This spell causes an object to glow like a torch, shedding bright light in a 20-foot radius (and dim light for an additional 20 feet) from the point you touch. The effect is immobile, but it can be cast on a movable object. Light taken into an area of magical darkness does not function.

Instant 120 ft. General
Area: 120-ft. line

Electricity deals 1d6/level damage.

You release a powerful stroke of electrical energy that deals 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to each creature within its area. The bolt begins at your fingertips.

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

Lightning Ring
  Sor/Wiz 8  

Ring of lightning gives you resistance to electricity 20, damages adjacent creatures, and emits two lightning bolts per round.

    Dragon 322
  Arc 4, Clr 4, Sor/Wiz 4

Limited Wish (XP)
Universal 1 standard action SRD
None; see text - Yes Sin-E 7, Sor/Wiz 7, Spell 7, Wuj 7 V, S, XP
See text See text General
Target; Effect; or Area: See text
XP Cost: 300 XP or more (see above).

Alters reality within spell limits.

A limited wish lets you create nearly any type of effect. For example, a limited wish can do any of the following things.

Duplicate any sorcerer/wizard spell of 6th level or lower, provided the spell is not of a school prohibited to you.

Duplicate any other spell of 5th level or lower, provided the spell is not of a school prohibited to you.

Duplicate any sorcerer/wizard spell of 5th level or lower, even if its of a prohibited school.

Duplicate any other spell of 4th level or lower, even if its of a prohibited school.

Undo the harmful effects of many spells, such as geas/quest or insanity.

Produce any other effect whose power level is in line with the above effects, such as a single creature automatically hitting on its next attack or taking a -7 penalty on its next saving throw.

A duplicated spell allows saving throws and spell resistance as normal (but the save DC is for a 7th-level spell). When a limited wish duplicates a spell that has an XP cost, you must pay that cost or 300 XP, whichever is more. When a limited wish spell duplicates a spell with a material component that costs more than 1,000 gp, you must provide that component.

Target: Tree touched

Oak becomes treant guardian.

This spell turns an oak tree into a protector or guardian. The spell can be cast on only a single tree at a time; while liveoak is in effect, you can't cast it again on another tree. The tree on which the spell is cast must be within 10 feet of your dwelling place, within a place sacred to you, or within 300 feet of something that you wish to guard or protect.

Liveoak must be cast on a healthy, Huge oak. A triggering phrase of up to one word per caster level is placed on the targeted oak. The liveoak spell triggers the tree into animating as a treant.

If liveoak is dispelled, the tree takes root immediately, wherever it happens to be. If released by you, the tree tries to return to its original location before taking root.

Llenol's Hasty Spell Scriber (M) (F)
Transmutation 1 hour ATB
Fortitude half - No Wiz 4 V, S, M, F
Instant Touch General
Targets: Scroll or spellbook source, and target spellbook.
Focus: The spellbook or spellbooks.
Materials: The scroll and spell scribing components

Inscribes spell into target spellbook from source scroll or spellbook.

While casting this spell, you are enhanced to quickly understand and scribe a spell. The first half hour of this spell casting time is spent studying the source spell from a spellbook or scroll. A scroll used this way is destroyed at this point, even upon failure of the following check. After this time, you must make a DC 30 + spell level Spellcraft check to see if you understand the spell. If you succeed, you procceed to the second half of this spell. If you fail, you take 1d6 temporary Intelligence damage, Fortitude save for half damage, and you cannot try to learn that spell until you gain at least one more rank in Spellcraft.

Once you understand the spell. The spell enhances your ability to scribe the spell into a spellbook. At the end of the casting time, you take 2d6 points of nonleathal damage per spell level (minimum 1d6 for cantrips), Fortitude save for half damage.

The scribing process still uses up the normal amount of materials as usual for the spellbook.

If the spell source is one you scribed yourself, casting time and damages are halved. You also automatically succeed on the spellcraft check.

Llenol started researching this spell once he realized he would not have the continous safety and time needed to maintain his spellbooks.

Area: Circle, centered on you, with a radius of 400 ft. + 40 ft./level

Senses direction toward object (specific or type).

You sense the direction of a well-known or clearly visualized object. You can search for general items, in which case you locate the nearest one of its kind if more than one is within range. Attempting to find a certain item requires a specific and accurate mental image; if the image is not close enough to the actual object, the spell fails. You cannot specify a unique item unless you have observed that particular item firsthand (not through divination).

The spell is blocked by even a thin sheet of lead. Creatures cannot be found by this spell. Polymorph any object fools it.
