Wizard Moves

Channelling: When you channel and collect your magics, roll with Spirit. On a 10+, hold 3. On a 7-9, hold 3 and choose 1 from the list below. On a miss, hold 1, but you cannot Channel again this scene.

  • Take -1 ongoing until you rest
  • Suffer 1-harm (ap)
  • Mark corruption
    Your hold lasts until you spend it. You can spend it to cast any spell you have as per the spell’s details.

Sanctum Sanctorum: When you go to your Sanctum for a spell ingredient, relic, or tome, roll with Spirit. On a 10+, you’ve got pretty much just the thing. On a 7-9, youv’e got something close, but it’s flawed or lacking in some significatnt way. On a miss, you don’t have what you’re looking for, but you know someone who probably has it in stock.


Tracking: Spend 1 hold to learn the location of someone. You must have a personal object that belongs to the target or recent leavings of their body (a lock of hair, fingernail clippings, their blood, etc.).
Elementalism: You conjure the elements to strike out at your enemies. Spend 1 hold to use Unleash with your magic as a weapon (3-harm close or 2-harm close area).
Memory Wipe: Spend 1 hold to cause a helpless target to forget some of their short-term memories, up to an entire hour’s worth. You can spend an additional hold and mark corruption to put alternate memories in their place.
Shielding: Spend 1 hold to provide armor+1 to yourself or someone nearby, or spend 2 holds to provide armor+1 to everyone in a small area, possibly including yourself. this armor lasts until the end of the scene. You can stack multiple uses of Shielding at once.
Veil: Spend 1 hold to make yourself invisible from sight for a few moments.
Hex: Spend 1 hold to inflict 1-harm (ap) on someone from any distance. You must have a sample of their hair, blood, or saliva to do so.
