Circles of Power[edit]

Circles of Power are required to cast spells. In general, Circles of Power may be acquired during chapters that take place Oblie Cathedral. Before a spell of a particular level may be even created for the player's repretoire, the appropriate Circle of Power must first be acquired.

Circle of Power - 3 Point[edit]

The weakest of the Circles, it is used to construct a spell from three runes: one alignment, one verb, and one noun.

Circle of Power - 5 Point[edit]

Stronger than the 3 Point Circle, this 5 Point Circle is the medium powered Circle for a player. It can be used to construct a spell from five runes: one alignment, one verb, one noun, and two pargon powerup runes.

Circle of Power - 7 Point[edit]

Stronger than the 5 Point Circle, this 7 Point Circle is the strongest Circle for a player. It can be used to construct a spell from seven runes: one alignment, one verb, one noun, and four pargon powerup runes.

Circle of Power - 9 Point[edit]

The strongest of the Circles seen in the game, this circle is almost exclusively used by The Liche, Pious Augustus. This Circle may be used to construct a spell from nine runes: one alignment, one verb, one noun, and six pargon powerup runes. There are two chapters that allow the player to use a 9 Point Circle of Power, which is made by nine spires in Ehn'Gha.

Runes[edit]

These "runes" in the game are a form of vocabulary of ideographs. These runes may be used to construct rudimentary sentences, some of which function as spells.

Alignments[edit]

Spells[edit]

Spells are created using one alignment rune, one verb rune, one noun rune, and an adjective rune (Pargon being the only one) to fill out the Circle of Power. In order to create spells of a certain level (3, 5, or 7), the appropriate Circle of Power must first be obtained from Oublie Cathedral. In order to create a specific spell, all runes used in that spell must have been obtained (it is not necessary to obtain the codices or the spell scroll). When the player has acquired the runes, codices, and spell scroll for a particular spell, its lowest-level version will automatically be learned. Higher-level versions must be created in the "New Spell" menu. Sometimes a higher-level spell is required in order to achieve the desired effect. The necessary level is usually, but not always, denoted nearby in some way.

Each character is only be able to create and cast spells after acquiring the Tome of Eternal Darkness. Some spells are only for specific situations, while some (like Magick Pool) are extremely useful at all times.

If you have constructed a spell prior to recieving all the necessary items to automatically learn the spell, it will be listed as "Spell #". These numbers are provided for assistance in creating and referencing spells during such occasions.
