Muto Terram

Obedient mud.

MuTe 3
R: Touch, D: Concentration T: Individual
The caster changes one aspect of the target dirt, clay or mud.
A magus could make a mud bottomed puddle drain as if it were sitting atop porous sand, or loosen/firm up the footing supplied by a distinct patch of ground that they touch, but more frequently Magi use the spell make individual stains of mud fall off of their robes as if the soil on their robes were dry sand.

Pass the Earthen Barrier

MuTe 15
R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Part
A section of stone you are touching briefly becomes soft, pliable, and flowing and viscous– somewhere between water and clay. A determined individual can push through it in a few moments before it hardens again, leaving no evidence of her passage.
(Base 4, + Touch, +1 Part, +1 Affect Stone)
Contributer: Falls

Wall of Accomodation

MuTe 15
R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Part
A section of a stone wall is changed into an open archway just large enough for a size 0 human to pass through comfortably. ( There is a common level 20 variant of this spell that has an herbam requisite and not only works on wooden as well as stone walls but also places a simple door in the archway.)
(Base:3, +1 magnitude stone, +1 magnitude range touch, + 1 magnitude duration concentration, + 1 magnitude target part)

Sublimation Tomb

MuTe(Au) 15
R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Part
Transforms a section of the ground it into gas, on the condition that the ground there is mostly made of some mixture of dirt-like matter. One point on the ground is chosen to be the center of the effect. Underneath this point, a section of the ground roughly the shape of a cone, is transformed into an opaque cloud of gas. The cone points downward, is 3 paces deep at the center, and is 5 paces in radius. Characters standing within the radius fall about (5-x)*9/5 feet, where x is their distance (in paces) from the center. Such characters will fall through the gas, and the appropriate falling damage is taken. The opaque gas applies a -9 to sight rolls below ground level, and hinders the ability to see the bottom, so characters that fall must make a Dex + Athletics roll when they land, or else they lose their footing on contact and tumble towards the center of the cone. The ease factor for this roll is equal to 3 plus the number of feet they fall. When the spell expires, the cloud of gas transforms back into dirt, roughly where it was before. This does no damage, although characters may be stuck.

Curse of the Spent Field

MuTe 20
R: Touch, D: Moon, T: Part
This curse transforms the topsoil of a medium to large field from good earth to a sandy mixture of chalk and lime. Any crops attempting to grow in a field over the course of this spell have little hope of survival, and will certainly devastate any potential harvest.
Jana of Merinita was determined to teach the local villagers to respect the old customs of the fae, and was incensed when they cut down the ‘last sheaf’ (usually reserved by custom for the faeries). To ensure they learnt the error of their ways, she developed this spell to ruin the next harvest and after its judicial use convinced the villagers to return to the old customs.
(Base: 2, R: Touch +1, D: Moon +3, T: Part +1, Size +1)
Contributer: Badger101, transcribed by Yair
Notes: This spell will affect about 100 cubic paces of earth. Given the topsoil is usually only a few inches deep, this should be sufficient to affect any reasonably sized field.

Passage Through the Treacherous Swamp

MuTe 20
R: Special, D: Sun, T: Part
Makes soft ground firm within a 3 pace radius around you. The spell works as long as you are touching the ground or riding on something (such as a horse or wagon) that is in contact with the ground. You cannot cross open water, but any muddy or sandy ground becomes firm, dry earth.
(Base 2, +2 special Range equivalent to Voice, +2 Sun, +1 Part, +1 effect moves with caster)

Shaping the Earth's Form

MuTe 20 (req: Re)
R: Touch D: Conc T: Part
Allows the caster to soften and rapidly reshape up to a 10 pace volume of stone so long as the caster's concentration is uninterrupted. The Rego requisite allows the caster to shape the affected mass via gestures (this does not interfere with concentration). This permits manipulations of moderate complexity (regular shapes and structures no thinner than a few inches) but any fine work attempted requires a Finesse stress roll (9+) to accomplish. So long as target remains a single connected mass, all of it may continue to be reshaped. Parts of the target may be selectively "re-hardened" or "pinched off", but they cease to be affected by the spell and cannot be re-shaped after this. As the spell is range Touch, the caster must remain in contact with some portion of the mass to continue to shape any part of it. If no portion of the affected mass is within 5 paces of the caster, the spell ends.
(Base 3, +1 Touch, +1 Conc, +1 Part, +1 size, +1 Rego requisite)

Sinking Sands of the Sahara

MuTe 20
R: Voice, D: Diameter, T: Part
This spell turns normal dirt into quicksand and those in the area of effect sink if they struggle greatly. The quicksand is not very deep and only size -2 characters run a risk of drowning.
(Base: 3, R: Voice +2, D: Diameter +1, T: Part +1, Size +1)
Contributor: Andrew Mitchell
Notes: I know I am mixing up dry quicksand and wet quicksand.

Easing the Knight’s Burden

MuTe 25 (Req: An)
R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Individual
This alters a suit of armor, shifting and redistributing its weight. None of the weight is eliminated, just the bulkiness is reduced. Lower the Load Value by 1 for a partial suit or by two for a full suit. If combined with Hauberk of Sublime Lightness, the result is a negligible load value (zero).
(B:4 :, R: Touch +1, D: Sun +2, T: Individual, Metal +2)

Window of Transparent Stone

MuTe 25
R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Part
Changes a portion of stone, cement, or brick wall to be as clear as air, creating a magical window one can see through (both ways). The window is about two feet wide by three feet high and can penetrate up to five feet of solid rock. The wall loses none of its hardness or strength. An Herbam casting requisite may be used to see through wooden beams or wood-and-plaster walls.
(Base 4, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +1 Part, +1 stone)

Animation of the Stone Brute

MuTe (req: Re, An) 30
R: Touch, D: Diameter, T: Individual
By touching a statue, the caster changes it into a living animal (up to Size +2). Whilst in contact with the animal, the caster can direct its actions. The animal will continue to perform the actions even while not of range of the spell, until it has succeeded them or the duration of the spell ends. Otherwise, the animal behaves as a typical member of its kind.
Just beyond the door to Terrene’s sanctum there is a pair of beautifully carved, life-sized, stone statues of lions.
(B: 5, R: Touch +1, D: Diameter +1, T: Individual; Size +1, Requisite +1, Stone +1)
Contributer: Badger101, transcribed by Yair
Notes: Base 5 allows the change into an animal, so that requisite is given free.

The Gargoyle Servant

MuTe 35 (Req: An, Re)
R: Touch, D: Sun, T: Individual
You animate a gargoyle statue, turning it into a servant with bestial intelligence. It obeys simple commands as a trained animal. The statistics of the creature may vary, depending on the shape & size of the statue, the quality of the stone, and the skill of the craftsman. If it has wings it may fly, and if originally constructed as a waterspout it can swim and breath water. Trivial natural powers such as these are covered by the magnitude of the spell already, and since they are natural, no further requisites are needed besides Animal.
(B: 5, R: Touch +1, D: Sun +2, T: Individual, Stone +1, Animal required for effect, Rego enhances the effect +1, fantastic beast +1)
