Spell Descriptions

The following spell descriptions are presented in alphabetical order.

Brain Spider

Divination [Mind-Affecting]

Level:

Cleric 8, Mind 7

Components:

V, S, M, DF

Casting Time:

1 round

Range:

Long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)

Targets:

Up to eight living creatures

Duration:

1 min./level

Saving Throw:

Will negates

Spell Resistance:

Yes

This spell allows you to eavesdrop as a standard action on the thoughts of up to eight other creatures at once, hearing as desired:

  • Individual trains of thought in whatever order you desire.

  • Information from all minds about one particular topic, thing, or being, one nugget of information per caster level.

  • A study of the thoughts and memories of one creature of the group in detail.

Once per round, if you do not perform a detailed study of one creature's mind, you can attempt (as a standard action) to implant a suggestion in the mind of any one of the affected creatures. The creature can make another Will saving throw to resist the suggestion, using the save DC of the brain spider spell. (Creatures with special resistance to enchantment spells can use this resistance to keep from being affected by the suggestion.) Success on this saving throw does not negate the other effects of the brain spider spell for that creature.

You can affect all intelligent beings of your choice within range (up to the limit of eight), beginning with known or named beings. Language is not a barrier, and you need not personally know the beings The spell cannot reach those who make a successful Will save.

Material Component: A spider of any size or kind. It can be dead, but must still have all eight legs.

Dweomer of Transference

Evocation

Level:

Cleric 4, Sorcerer/Wizard 4

Components:

V, S

Casting Time:

1 minute

Range:

Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)

Target:

One willing psionic creature

Duration:

1 round/level

Saving Throw:

Will negates (harmless)

Spell Resistance:

Yes (harmless)

With this spell, you form a radiating corona around the head of a psionic ally, then convert some of your spells into psionic power points. When you finish casting dweomer of transference, a red-orange glow surrounds the psionic creature's head. For the duration of the spell, any spells cast at the subject don't have their usual effect, instead converting themselves harmlessly into psionic energy that the subject can use as energy for psionic powers. You can cast any spell you like at the subject, even area spells, effect spells, and spells for whom the subject would ordinarily not be a legitimate target. The spells don't do anything other than provide the subject with power points, but you must still cast them normally, obeying the component and range requirements listed in the description of each spell.

For each spell you cast into the dweomer of transference, the psionic creature gets temporary power points, according to the following table. The transference isn't perfectly efficient. The temporary power points acquired through a dweomer of transference dissipate after 1 hour if they haven't already been spent.

For a brief time, you achieve the mental dominance of a powerful psion, able to lash out at enemies using only the power of your mind.

For the duration of this spell, you use magic items and psionic items as if you were a psion with only the five powers given above on your class list.

All the subject's memories and knowledge are accessible to you, ranging from memories deep below the surface to those still easily called to mind. You can learn the answer to one question per round, to the best of the subject's knowledge. You can also probe a sleeping subject, though the subject may make a Will save against the DC of the probe thoughts spell to wake after each question. Subjects who do not wish to be probed can attempt to move beyond the power's range, unless somehow hindered. You pose the questions telepathically, and the answers to those questions are imparted directly to your mind. You and the target do not need to speak the same language, though less intelligent creatures may yield up only appropriate visual images in answer to your questions.

When the spell is cast and at the beginning of each of your subsequent turns, psionic creatures within the area of the psychic turmoil lose 1 power point per manifester level they have. Characters who succeed on a Will save when they first come into contact with the emanation lose only half as many power points (round down) each round. Characters get only one save attempt against any particular psychic turmoil effect, even if they leave the spell's area and later return.

Material Component: Five playing cards, which are torn in half when the spell is cast.
