Put the Name to the Half-Remembered Face

InMe 15
R: Personal, D: Momentary, T: Individual
By casting this spell upon himself, the Magus can answer one specific question about an event they have a memory of. Typical uses of this are to enable recall of a detail of a personal description (What colour were her eyes? What was the device on his shield?), or the name of an individual they have heard but forgotten.
Guglielmus of Bonisagus was a brilliant researcher, but in his later years had a terrible memory for the names of his many apprentices. To avoid the embarrassment of occasionally getting the name wrong, he developed this spell so he might reliably recall the correct name.

Kindling the Truth

InMe 15
R: Eye, D: Momentary, T: Individual
By concentrating on a simple statement and looking into the eyes of your target, you will get a vision that reflects the target's knowledge of the truth of that statement. If the target believes the statement is true, you will see his eyes flash once with firelight. If the target believes the statement is false, you will see a small puff of smoke burst from his eyes. If the target does not know or care about the veracity of the statement, nothing will happen. Only you can see these effects, so the target's vision is not hindered by them. The target does not know that anything has happened, aside from any actions you may have taken in casting the spell. Since you must have eye contact with the target in the first place, you will always see the reaction if there is one.
(B: 10, R: Eye + 1, Effect is cosmetic and thus free)
Notes: This is a weak cross between two level 20 spells, "Frosty breath of the spoken lie" and "Posing the silent question" (from Ars Magica, 5th ed.). The former has a longer duration, and the latter can ask questions not limited to T/F.

Sense of the Stranger’s Purpose

R: Road, D: Momentray, T: Individual
For a person the Maga is aware of, she can sense the general and most powerful motivation they possess.
“You seek my aid in a matter of love. Well then, stranger, tarry not upon the road.”

Recall the Base Nature of Man

InMe(Im) 20
R: Voice +2, D: Momentary, T: Individual
Target's image momentarily changes to match their personality. The image usually takes the form of animalistic characteristics and the stronger the personality trait the more animalistic the image, e.g. a brave person would look like a Lion.

Caster feels all the emotions of anyone he touches.

Reveal the Hidden Detail of the Day

InMe 30
R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Individual
By touching the target upon the temples and concentrating on this spell, the Magus can review the target’s memories from over the last day. The quality of the memories is determined by how much the person recalls of events, though the caster may effectively ‘ask questions’ of the memories by making Perception + Finesse rolls. The storyguide will assign a difficulty to the roll depending upon the level of detail sought. For example, to clearly gain an impression of a heraldic device that the target definitely saw, but cannot specifically remember, the difficulty might be 9+.
Utilising a large network of spies, Orban was able to obtain useful information about the political intrigues of the local mundanes. He occasionally would make use of this spell to ensure that important detail was not missed from his spies’ reports.
