Once completed, an exact replica appears within his other hand (or within reach). The item duplicated can weigh up to ten pounds and lasts for ten minutes before winking out of existence. It is an exact replica; f a broken gun is copied, the dupe is also broken! This applies to other facets of the item as well; e.g. that gun would have the same number of bullets loaded as the original.

  • Inherent Modifiers: None.
  • Greater Effects: 0 (×1).
  • This spell conjures a semi-sentient spirit that exists only to clean, cook, and organize – a “housekeeper.” It is considered to have IQ 6, Telekinesis 8, and Housekeeping-12 (the equivalent of a professional servant) and is only capable of performing mundane domestic tasks, from cooking simple meals to cleaning. (There is no way to get it to adventure or fight for you, and a single point of damage destroys it.) It exists for half a day before dissipating.

Lesser Cure Disease

  • Spell Effects: Lesser Restore Body.
  • Inherent Modifiers: None.
  • Greater Effects: 0 (×1).
  • This ritual eradicates a single organism (bacterium, virus, fungus, etc.) infecting the subject.

The ritual will not cure genetic diseases nor flush poisons or complex parasites from the subject. Any damage or other effects of the disease remain. This spell can only affect diseases with a finite duration.
  • Typical Casting: Lesser Restore Body (4) + Subject Weight, 300 pounds (3). 7 energy (7×1).

  • Inherent Modifiers: Area of Effect.

Second Sight

  • Spell Effects: Greater Sense Magic + Greater Sense Spirit.
  • Inherent Modifiers: None
  • Greater Effects: 2 (×5).

Magical disguises are meaningless, the nature and structure of spells are obvious, and the world of sleeping spirits is revealed. Everything witnessed with Second Sight remains with the caster for the rest of their life, never fading. While very powerful, this ability is also very dangerous, as some things are so awful, so terrible, that having them burned into one's mind forever is a sure ticket to madness. Additionally, shutting one's third eye requires another 'casting' of this effect, rather than relying on a duration running out -- this means that an unlucky caster can find themselves unable to close their third eye again, caught by the wonders and terrors of the world-behind-the-world. Despite its name, this ability affects all senses.
