Spell Descriptions

  • 1. Study II - Caster can read at double the normal rate (resulting in 2 pages per minute while this spell is active).
  • 2. Learn Language II - Doubles the rate at which the caster can learn a language. Every rank of language developed (i.e., DPs spent) results in two ranks being learned. It is assumed that this spell is cast and in effect while the language is being learned.
  • 3. Book Learning II - Doubles the rate at which the caster can learn a skill (typically a lore or science skill) from books on the topic. Every rank developed (i.e., DPs spent) results in two ranks being learned. It is assumed that this spell is cast and in effect while the book is being studied.
  • 4. Teaching I - Caster can teach any skill that he knows so that up to one student for every three levels (round down) (designated when the spell is cast) can learn the skill at twice the normal rate. Every rank developed (i.e., DPs spent) results in two ranks being learned. It is assumed that this spell is cast and in effect while the subject is being taught.
  • 5. Study III - As Study II, except caster can read at triple the normal rate (resulting in 3 pages per minute).
  • 6. Comprehend Language I - Caster can understand one written or spoken language as if he had 8 ranks.
  • 7. Learn Language III - As Learn Language II, except the rate is tripled (and three ranks gained for every one).
  • 8. Teaching II - As Teaching I, except the caster can teach one student per two levels.
  • 9. Book Learning III - As Book Learning II, except the rate is is tripled (and three ranks gained for every one).
  • 10. Study VI - As Study II, except caster can read at six the normal rate (resulting in 6 pages per minute).
  • 11. Teaching III - As Teaching I, except the caster can teach one student per level at twice the normal rate or the caster can teach one student per 10 levels (round down) who can learn at three times the normal rate.
  • 12. Learn Language IV - As Learn Language II, except the rate is four times normal (and four ranks gained for every one).
  • 13. Study XV - As Study II, except caster can read at fifteen the normal rate (resulting in 15 pages per minute).
  • 14. Rapid Teaching I - Caster can teach any skill (one rank) that he knows to one student in eight hours. He must be touching the student when he casts the spell.
  • 15. Study True - As Study II, except caster can read as fast as he can glance at the page.
  • 16. Book Learning IV - As Book Learning II, except the rate is is four times normal (and four ranks gained for every one).
  • 17. Teaching IV - As Teaching III, except the caster can teach two students per level at twice the normal rate or one student per 8 levels at triple the normal rate.
  • 18. Comprehend Language II - As Comprehend Language I, except caster comprehends both spoken and written forms as if he had 10 ranks.
  • 19. Rapid Teaching II - As Rapid Teaching I, except it only takes five hours.
  • 20. Teaching V - As Teaching III, except the caster can teach three students per level at twice the normal rate or one student per 6 levels at triple the normal rate.
  • 25. Learn Language V - As Learn Language II, except the rate is five times normal (and five ranks gained for every one).
  • 30. Book Learning V - As Book Learning II, except the rate is is five times normal (and five ranks gained for every one).
  • 50. Instant Educating - The caster (either in the role of student or teacher) and one target touched by the caster (who assumes the other role) are involved in the instant learning of a rank in a skill (at normal DP costs). To both individuals, it seems like time was frozen while they spent an hour of intensive teaching and learning the skill.

Special Notes

  1. For this spell list, working on the task is considered concentration and can be continued for eight hours of work with occasional breaks of up to half an hour. For interruptions longer than half an hour, the spell can be recast to be continued if the effect has not yet been achieved.

  2. For Book Learning spells to be useful, the available books must be present where the learner is and have enough content on the subject for meaningful skill development (GM decision).

  3. For Teaching spells (including Rapid Teaching), the most a student can learn (i.e., final skill ranks) is the skill of the teacher.

  4. For the Rapid Teaching and Instant Educating spells, if the student currently has no DPs, these are subtracted from the DPs earned at the next level (unless handled some other way by the GM).
