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

Calm the Heart (CrMe 15)
R: Eye, D: Sun, T: Ind
Makes a target feel calm.
(Base 4, +1 Eye, +2 Sun)

LORD, Make These People Repentant (CrMe 25) (P)
R: Eye, D: Sun, T: Group
Makes a group of people feel repentant and want to make amends for their sins. This spell was developed as part of the Holy casting breakthrough and is cast using a prayer; it thus does not suffer from the usual Holy Magic casting penalty to avoid idolatrous Hermetic words and gestures.
(Base 4, +1 Eye, +2 Sun, +2 Group)

Lab Texts

  • Rosary of Calming (CrMe 20)
  • Louis' longevity potion (Cr 10 + Co 5 + Int 2 + Holy Magic 5 + Aura 4 = 26; - 6 Potion; 4p Cr and 3p Co required)
