Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth

MuVi Gen Ritual
R: Touch, D: Year, T: Structure
This spell is used by covenants with dependences. A dependence (monastic term that means a possession of a monastery far away from the monastery's core) is a magus' sanctum that is not physically linked to the rest of the covenant. The motivation for keeping a dependence may be because the magus' experiments are too dangerous for the rest of the covenant, or he may prefer to have the sanctum in a location useful for his magical studies. (an Auram magus might choose to be in a castle on the windy top of a mountain, with the rest of the covenant being in the valley below).
As dependences will not be protected by a normal Aegis of the Hearth, this spell seeks to solves this problem. To use it one must use an object that was part of the covenant (for example, a stone from the wall, a statue, or a tree from its gardens). The object must be prepared for use in the casting of the Aegis of the Hearth. The object will be usable in successive castings of the Aegis without be prepared again, provided that the Aegis ritual is cast by the same person or people, with the same level, and is participated in by the same magically-Gifted people.
The object must be implanted in the dependence, performing the same function it performed in the original covenant (the stone must be inside a wall, the statue or the tree must be placed in a similar place) in order to be a valid arcane connection.
The ritual Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth may then be cast. Provided it is cast successfully, the Aegis of the home covenant is projected through the arcane connection and protects the dependence. While the Aegis of the Hearth ritual must normally be performed by all the magi of the covenant, the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth need only be performed only by the magus (or magi) inhabiting the dependence. The maximum level of protection given by Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth is either the level of the covenant's Aegis or twice the level of the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth ritual, being equal to the level of the lesser of the two.
If the caster of the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth ritual participated in the Aegis of the Hearth ritual, he does not need to penetrate the Aegis' resistance, otherwise the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth's penetration must overcome the level of the Aegis.
If the arcane connection is destroyed (the statue or the stone are destroyed or the tree dies) or it ceases to perform the function it performed in the original covenant (the stone is extracted from the wall, the statue is taken out of the dependence or the tree is uprooted) the link is broken and the dependence is unprotected.
This system presents some dangers, for the arcane connection can be used to avoid the original covenant's Aegis. A dependence normally is less secure than a covenant, so the dependence might be a crack in the covenant's protection. Thus a dependence should not be set up for frivolous reasons. A common trick used by builders of dependences is to conceal the arcane connection or to use a fragile object so that the connection can be destroyed easily to protect the home covenant if the dependence is taken by force.
If the home covenant's Aegis is dispelled, the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth ritual is also nullified. The annual renewal of the Aegis (if performed by the same people, with the same level and the same Gifted people participating) does not affect the Projecting the Aegis of the Hearth, which will remain active until duration expires (though it may also be renewed).

Notes: This spell, like the Aegis of the Hearth, does not fit in standard Hermetic theory. It was developed from the same rituals that allowed Notatus of Bonisagus to develop the Aegis of the Hearth. This origin explains why it is more powerful than it ought to be..

May the Circle Be Unbroken

MuVi General Ritual
R: Touch, D: Year, T: Circle
The magical effect of target magic circle will persist even if the physical circle is broken while this Ritual is in effect. This Ritual affects a spell of equal or less level. Sometimes you really don't want the circle to be broken.

Notes: I could have used the Baseline that adds two magnitudes to a spell half the level but I wanted this spell to be a Ritual which I think makes up for choosing the easier baseline.

I would still use the higher guideline as the spell is rather fundamentally changed. D: Year nicely makes it a ritual anyway.

Mirror of (Form) Falsification

MuVi G
R: Voice, D: Momentary, T: Individual
You cast this spell upon another as it is being cast, and that spell is changed into an illusion of itself. That is, this spell turns the other spell into Creo Imaginem effect that simulates the intended effect. For example, you can turn a Pilium of Fire into a harmless illusion of a bolt of flame, or make it look like someone changed shape when they really didn’t. There are ten versions of this spell, one for each Form, and only affects spells of a level up to half of the (level -5) of this spell.

Ebullience of Overzealous Hagiographers

MuVi 15
R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Individual
The spell targeted by Ebullience of Overzealous Hagographers is altered as if the caster had an exceptionally strong sigil of Christian symbology. Effects form themselves into crosses, spells appear to resemble doves and lambs, sound effects generated by spells are eerily reminicent of angelic trumpets or chanted psalms. Ebullience of Overzealous Hagographers must be cast in conjunction with the target spell requiring an int + conc roll of 9+. The target of Ebullience of Overzealous Hagographers must be lower than level 30.

Notes: From the message board level 1-15 spells project, (and as a result written up as a level 15 spell rather than a general spell).

Sustain the Single Corpus Spell

MuVi 25
R: Voice, D: Sun, T: Individual
This spell allows the caster to boost the duration of a Corpus spell by one category (up to the maximum of Sun duration). The level of the spell affected must be 10 or less. You may not affect a single spell more than once with this spell.
Mycaelis of Bonisagus developed many concentration spells of low level when he was a younger magus, but increasingly found it frustrating to have to concentrate on a spell rather than have it last all day. He developed this magic to allow him to sustain some of his Corpus spells for a longer duration, without the time needed to reinvent all the individual spells formulaically.

Room of the Confused Magus

MuVi 45
R: Touch, D: Moon, T: Room
This spell is cast upon a room. Any spell cast, up to level 20, in the room is targeted upon the caster of the spell.
When engaged with Mulciber of Flambeau in Wizard’s War, Discordia used this spell on his Sanctum. Guessing he would strike with a fairly low level spell (her Parma Magica was strong enough to absorb his higher level spells), she boldly entered. Mulciber was more than a little surprised when his Pilum of Fire penetrated his own Parma and incapacitated him.
