Anglesey - Spells for Magic Users
Spells: Cantrips 1st Level 2nd Level 3rd Level
Cantrips are treated differently in this world from the 5e rules. A magic user can cast any cantrip that he or she knows without having to rest and memorize/prepare it. But, he/she only has 4 cantrip spell slots. After using these 4 slots, a magic user can choose to sacrifice a spell slot to use that energy towards casting more cantrips. This sacrifice works as follows: 1st level = 4 cantrips, 2nd level slot = 8 cantrips ....... Thus, a magic user with 2 first level spell slots and a 2nd level spell slot can choose to use all of that energy towards cantrips and cast 4 + 8 (sacrifice 1st levels) + 8 (sacrifice 2nd level) = 20 cantrips. Again, unlike 1st+ level spells, the magic user can decide on the spur of the moment which cantrip (from their list of known cantrips) to cast.
Locate Mineral/Natural Chemical
Locate Mineral/Natural Chemical; Cantrip; Casting Time: 1 action; Range: 30’ Components: V,S,M (a small, cloth bag with long draw cords and a small sample of the substance being sought); Duration: Intense concentration up to 10 minutes (requires a 10 minute complete rest before recasting)
The caster places a small sample of the mineral or chemical being sought within the bag. The bag is held by suspending it with the long drawstrings to the bag. The caster must concentrate fully (he/she will require a guide to move to avoid running into objects unless the caster moves very slowly – small and slow steps). The caster can move at a slow walking pace with a guide. The caster visualizes bringing the sample to a larger piece of the same substance. As the caster concentrates, the sample in the bag will be drawn towards the target if it is within 30’. If the caster can visualize the target, the process is faster and more definite (e.g. if the target is a horseshoe, the iron sample will be attracted to it in a more efficient manner as the caster feels slightly pulled along a direct path). Otherwise, the caster will be sensing whether he/she is heading in the right direction or not (like telling a blindfolded person whether they are ‘warmer’ or ‘colder’ as you give them directions). Once ‘attuned’ to the object, the caster can follow its boundaries fairly quickly if it is a large sample. Note: Only 1 sample can be sought at a time.
