A strong arm and quick thinking alone are not enough to achieve your goal of defeating Hargon. Since the beginning of time, Magic has been a force in this land, shaping its history and the beings who dwell here. As the Prince of Cannock and the Princess of Moonbrooke gain experience and reach particular levels, they will learn new spells that will help your party succeed in your perilous quests. Each time you cast a spell your Magic Points (MP) will be reduced by a set amount. The charts below show both how many MP a spell costs and at which level you learn it.
