Spell Format

The description of each spell is presented in a standard format. Each category of information is explained and defined below.

Name

The first line of every spell description gives the name by which the spell is generally known.

Classification

Beneath the spell name is a line displaying the spell's classification and any descriptors the spell may carry.

Circle

The third line of every spell description displays the circle of the spell as well as the spellcasting track to which it belongs.

Casting Time

The fourth line of every spell description displays the action or amount of time that is taken to cast the spell.

Range

The fourth line of every spell description displays the range from the caster within which the effect of the spell may take place.

Target or Effect

Target

If the fifth line of a spell description displays "Target," the rest of the text in the line displays the applicable target(s) of the spell.

Effect

If the fifth line of a spell description displays "Effect," the rest of the text displays the effect the spell will create within the spell's range.

Duration

If a line in a spell description begins with "Duration," the rest of the text displays how long the spell's effect lasts.

Saving Throw

If a line in a spell description begins with "Saving Throw," the rest of the text displays "None" if no saving throw is allowed against this spell. It otherwise displays the type of save that may be made against the spell's effect, and what a successful save of that type means in relation to that effect.

  • Negates: The spell has no effect on a creature that makes a successful saving throw.
  • Partial: The spell causes an effect on its subject. A successful saving throw means that some lesser effect occurs.
  • Half: The spell deals damage, and a successful saving throw halves the damage taken.

Descriptive Text

This portion of a spell description details what the spell does and how it works. If one of the previous entries in the description included "see text," this is where the explanation is found.

Reversal

A Reversal header in a spell's description provides the name of the reverse spell, and its descriptive text. Unless otherwise displayed, the reverse spell carries the same classification, descriptors, circle, casting time, range, target or effect, duration, and saving throw lines as the normal spell.

Incantation

An Incantation header in a spell's description provides the descriptive text of the spell when it is chosen for the Imbue Spell ability under the Incantation track. Such spells chosen for the Imbue Spell ability use this version of the spell instead of the normal version of the spell. The Incantation version of the spell cannot otherwise be used. Unless otherwise stated, this version of the spell carries the same classification, descriptors, circle, range, target or effect, and duration as the normal version of the spell.
