(H) - Includes -15 penalty to casting totals for Holy Spells, as caster is never going to succeed at a Pre + Theology vs EF 15.
(R) - Ritual
(P) - can be cast via prayer using Holy casting, so no penalty. Can still be cast silently and without gestures at usual penalties.

Feeding the Multitude (CrHe 20) (Ritual)
R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Group
Creates 1000 cubic paces of loaves of bread. Assuming a packing fraction of 50% and a density of 0.19, this equates to roughly 95 tons of bread, or 63,000 person-days at the usual consumption of 1.5kg per day.
(Base 3, +1 Touch, +2 Group, +2 Size)

Scent of the Magical Places (InVi 5)
R: Personal, D: Concentration, T: Smell
Allows the caster to detect the presence and power of Magical auras by smell. The more powerful the aura, the more powerful the smell.
(Base 2, +1 Concentration, +2 Smell)

The Stench of Sin (InVi 5)
R: Personal, D: Concentration, T: Smell
Allows the caster to detect the presence and power of Infernal auras by smell (brimstone). The more powerful the aura, the more powerful the smell.
(Base 2, +1 Concentration, +2 Smell)

Impression of the Past Miracle (InVi 30)
R: Personal, D: Momentary, T: Touch)
This spell allows the caster to examine Divine traces of positive magnitude. In the case of Holy Magic, it provides information equivalent to Impression of the Faded Sigil (InVi 30): the technique and Form, the nature of the effect, whether it came from a magus or an item, and the sigil of the caster / item creator. For other Divine effects, it reveals equivalent details, which the caster may be able to interpret depending on their knowledge.
(Base 10, +3 details, +1 tocuh)
