Sorcerer's Arcana

"Sorcerer's Arcana" is the colloquialism given to the most varied and practiced of magical arts, cast with a wand or staff along with vocal chants and waves of the hand. Many, many subtle variations on this style of casting is present across the universe, but it all deals in the same sort of arcanism; wielding raw, generally non-elemental spiritual energy to impact the physical world, enchant the weak-willed, divine the future, or transmute matter.

Sorcerer/Wizard Arcana is able to be cast by the Arcana school of magic, and is one of the most easily accessible schools of magic available.

See the DW Wiki for more information.

  • Contagious Flame - The character is able to create a gout of fire towards a single target that, if it strikes, will immediately move onto another target. Each successful strike on one target lets the spell chain into another target, up to (Mage Level) targets or the attack fails. Each target rolls against the original attack spell. This spell deals fire-element full magic damage with each strike.
  • Contingency - This spell-- more a casting technique than anything -- allows a mage to set a "condition" for the automatic casting of another spell. This condition-spell combo can only be set once per mission (even if it's multi-session) and cannot be altered once set. Setting the condition costs "Contingency"'s MP, but that MP cannot be regained until the mission is over. When the condition is met during the mission, the specified spell is cast automatically as a free action, but costs the spell's MP each time. Valid condition-spell combinations are based on a GM's "I'll know it when I see it" jurisprudence.
  • Control Water - The character is able to control existing bodies of water with some proficiency, allowing them to expend power to mold and move water. This spell allows a character to control (Mage Level / 2) Areas of water (deep and/or wide), allowing them to part, push, lower, or raise it. This effect lasts for 5 rounds.
  • Curse, Major - The character is able to bestow a powerful curse on a single target that debilitates and weakens it for a short time. Inflicts Moderate "Curse" status on a single target for 5 rounds.
  • Disintegrate - The character is able to send a beam of non-elemental energy from his/her hands to strike a single target. This beam is extremely dangerous, dealing full-power non-elemental damage to the target if struck ... but the beam carries with it a chance of outright destroying lesser creatures ("goons") and solid objects (doors, walls, machines, etc.). Critical hit range on this spell is raised to 10%, but Divine remains at 1%.

  • Freezing Sphere - The user is able to create a dense ball of spiritual energy that, upon contact with an object, flash-freezes it and the surrounding area. Can be used to create barriers (block doorways), freeze up to (Mage Level / 2) (round up) Areas (5 Areas at Level 10) of the surface of liquid water to allow passage, and various other similar effects.
  • Geas/Quest - The character is able to place a divine mandate on a single character, forcing them to either complete a set of tasks laid out before it or suffer the consequences... This spell places a "mandatory" quest on a single character, which can be as closed- or open-ended as needed, but geas/quests that are too open-ended or impossible by the user's own ability can only last a period of (Mage Level) days at maximum. So long as the character stays on a "voluntary" path towards the goals of this quest or task, they suffer no consequences; if the character stops or is prevented from carrying on the task, it begins to suffer the "Curse" status effect. The first week incurs Mild "Curse" status; after a month, Moderate; after two months, Acute; after six months, Chronic; after a year, Terminal. A Geas can be removed by a Curse-curing spell, but someone attempting to break the geas must roll against the caster's original spell cast result each time the "break" is attempted. Otherwise, this spell lasts until the quest is completed or it is successfully dispelled.
  • Getaway - Teleports a group of predetermined allies and creatures to a predetermined location. Range: within the same plane. Allies can choose to stay if they wish.

  • Leashed Shackles - This spell creates spiritual bindings that lash around a target and latch them into a single place in the ground, preventing movement. They are still able to speak and interact, but cannot move from where their feet are anchored. This effect lasts for 5 rounds.
  • Legend Lore - Lets you learn tales about a person, place, or thing. If you are in the same general location as said legend, casting time is 1d4*10 minutes. If you only have detailed information on the legend, time is 1d10 days. If you only know rumors, time is 2d6 weeks. In this time period you cannot participate in missions and the like; you may only partake in normal activities (sleep, eating, etc). At the end of this time period, roll luck. On a 51+, more rumors and legends about this being are brought to mind. On a 501+, more current information is given into the caster's mind. On 801+, more forgotten or unknown details can be offered.
  • Mislead - This spell masks a target in an invisible shroud and creates in his/her stead a basic doppelganger of the target that can perform basic actions and interact with the environment to a limited extent.

If attacked, affected individuals can defend themselves using defensive actions, such as dodges, blocks, counters, and magic defenses, without suffering the effects.
  • Shadow Walk - Step into the shadow plane to travel rapidly at 50 mph. It's impossible to accurately judge distance and terrain from the shadow plane.

  • Sirocco - The character is able to create a searing-hot blastwave of down-draft air and project it downwards onto a single Area, affecting all targets inside. This actually deals a mix of Fire- and Wind-element magic damage, and any who are struck by it suffer from Acute "Fatigue" status for 5 rounds.
  • Stone to Flesh - This spell is able to reverse most petrification effects instantly. Removes Mild, Moderate, and Acute "Petrify" status effects.
  • Suggestion, Mass - 1 target per 2 mage levels (round down) are influenced by a 1- or 2-sentence suggested course of activity. The suggestion must be logically reasonable or the spell will not work. (Will-Resist Only)
