Identify
Syntax: cast identify <object>
This spell reveals information about the object, more so than using lore.


Imbue
Syntax: cast imbue <target>
cast imbue
This spell allows clerics to increase the magic-casting abilities of themselves
(when used without a target) or any other target (when used with a target).
In game terms this means an increase in casting level.


Imposter
Imposter is an Illusionist spell that allows the user to take the form of
another player. Use 'revert' to revert to your original self. Caution is
advised however, because the transition from a morphed form to your original
form has been known to be tough to do.


Improved Invisibility
Improved invisibility is the same as invisibility except that the spell
stays active even after combat. Only mages who study as Illusionists learn
this spell.


Infravision
This spell enables the target character to see warm-blooded creatures even
while in the dark, and exits of a room as well.


Infuriate
This battlemage spell allows the bmage to effectively rescue the target,
quite similar to the skill but with a much higher chance of success.
It also, of courses, costs mana where the rescue skill does not.


Inspect Room
The bandit, though not trained in acute vision has some ability to survey
the area and determine if people might be hiding by looking at signs in the
room. The bandit is generally very good at determining the number of people
that might be hiding.


Inspire
Adds 3 hit, 3 dam, and -9ac to a crusader's group.


Instant Regeneration
This spell is available to battlemages, and can only be cast on one's self.

points are gained between ticks instead of just at the tick) for a very short
period of time.

Instigate
The proper charlatan, knowing that perhaps the easier way to defeat an
opponent is to not even lift a blade themselves, may seek to instigate
another on their behalf.

A successful instigate goads two other individuals into battle, causing a
great deal of entertainment for the charlatan, and possibly a good bit of
rage from those opponents that find themselves suddenly fighting each other.


Intimidate
This shadowknight spell enables the shadowknight to help his or her
group to hit more accurately than usual, similar to some bard songs
that do the same effect.


Interlace Spirit
Syntax: cast 'interlace spirit' <object>

Interlace spirit allows an enchantor to interlace his/her own spirit into
the given weapon or piece of armor. Interlace spirit does not remove
anything from the current object, but _does_ interlace your own spirit with
any other aura it already has.

It makes it unwearable by the opposing alignment.


Invisibility
The invisibility spell makes the target character invisible. Invisible
characters will become visible when they attack. It may also be cast on an
object to render the object invisible.
In order to become visible again, simply type "visible".

Involuntary Wizardry
Syntax: cast 'involuntary wizardry' <victim>

Involuntary wizardry allows the caster to cause the victim to cast a random
spell upon themselves. If the victim cannot cast spells, then the
involuntary wizardry will be ineffective.

When jested by an enchantor the victim becomes so captivated with the
caster's presence that they cannot think for themselves or carry out any
other actions.


Jubilee of Regeneration
Increases the hitpoint regeneration of everyone in the skald's group and
in the same room. This skald chant does not, however, come into affect
until one tick after the chant has been sung.


Kick
Kicking allows the adventurer to receive an extra attack in combat, a powerful
kick. However, a failed kick may throw an unwary fighter off balance. Fighters
and clerics are the most skilled at kicking, although thieves may also learn
it.

The damage a kick does is directly dependant on your character's size and
strength.
Return to Top


Know Alignment
This spell reveals the alignment of the target character. Simple, huh?


Know Languages
Syntax: cast 'know languages'

of leprosy, which causes the skin of the victim to begin to rot.
The afflicted will also be weakened as the flesh-eating bacteria begins
to break down his or her muscle tissue.


Lightning Bolt
Syntax: cast 'lightning bolt' <target>
cast 'lightning bolt' <direction> <target>

As is evidenced by its name, the casting of this spell calls down a massive
lightning bolt from the skies. This bolt of lightning can cause a great
deal of damage, and much like any other lightning, has potential side
effects.

The caster can also direct this spell toward opponents standing in distant
rooms.

weapons. The lifebane poison is very lethal and long lasting. The shade

no one can see what is in the room that the spell was cast in. It is similar
to fog.

This spell reveals the location of all objects with the given name. It does not
always land and does not reveal objects higher level than the caster.


Locate Remains
Syntax: cast 'locate remains' <name>

This low level Necromancy spell is surprisingly useful. A successful
casting of 'locate remains' will indicate where the corpse of a recently
deceased individual can be found. Whether this is on another creature, or
merely laying on the ground, the 'locate remains' spell pinpoints the
location of the victim's corpse.

This spell, used in conjunction with 'embalm' can provide the Necromancer
with a fresh, consistent supply of material for his Art.


Lore
Syntax: Lore <object>
Lore is a general skill, consisting of knowledge of myths and legends. Use
of the lore skill gives a chance of obtaining information on an object,
concerning its power and uses. It also may occasionally increase the value
of an object, because more will be known about its worth. All classes may
learn lore, although thieves are best at it, and warriors find it very hard
to use.

Lullaby
A bard song that enables the singer to put someone temporarily to sleep.
In other words, it works exactly like the sleep spell.


Mace
This is a weapon skill, including maces, hammers, clubs, and other blunt
objects. Many mace weapons can also stun the target on a successful hit.
Having the mace skill also boosts one's parry against people using maces.


Magic Missile
Syntax: cast 'magic missile' <target>

One newly trained in the arts of magical combat learns this spell quickly in
their studies. The casting of magic missile provides the barest of
offensive abilities in magical combat.

When cast, this spell appears before the target as a series of projectiles
of energy, flashing forth from the hands of the caster.

on all players in the room. It also throws in a refresh spell for good
measure.

invisible, including the caster. Otherwise it is the same as the invisibility
spell as if it were cast by a brandished staff.


Meditation
This skill is similar to fast healing, but relies on the concentration and
mantras to increase mana recovery when the character is sleeping or resting.
Thieves and warriors, with their troubled minds and violent attitudes, have
much trouble learning to meditate.
Return to Top

temporarily. It cannot increase the target's con above their normal maximum.


Nerve
Syntax: nerve <target>
This is a quick accupressure jab to the neck of your opponent. The
resulting damage to your opponent's nerves temporarily weakens them.
Return to Top


Nexus
Syntax: cast 'nexus' <target>
This spell is virtually identical to portal (see 'help portal'), with the
only difference being that while portal creates a one-way gate, a nexus
spell makes a two-sided gate. It also lasts longer than the lower-powered
portal spell. Both spells require an additional power source, the secret
of which has been lost... This spell can traverse the boundries of continents.


Nightmare (song)



Nightmeld
A nightshade skill that allows them to hide better than most.


No Eyes
A short-duration blind song that cannot be cured with cure blind.

against the invocation.
Return to Top

Nourishment allows a priest to relieve all hunger and thirst from a
individual leaving them fully nourished.


Panic Enemy
Panic enemy allows the bandit to attempt to send the enemy into a panic
which causes them to have trouble when fleeing and also might affect their
ability to hit.


Paralyze
An illusionists spell used on others to make them think their muscles are
failing. This spell seems to have a harder time landing on the smarter
races of Algoron than on those of little brain.


Parry
If at first you fail to dodge, block it. Parry is useful for deflecting
attacks, and is successful more often than dodge. Parry requires a weapon for
full success, the hand-to-hand skill may also be used, but results in reduced
damage instead of no damage. The best chance of parrying occurs when the
defender is skilled in both his and his opponent's weapon type.
Return to Top


Pass Door
Syntax: cast 'pass door'
This spell enables the caster to walk through closed doors.


Peek
Syntax: peek <mob/player>

the better to use the steal command with. More intelligent characters are
harder to peek at. All characters may learn peek, but thieves are the most
common practitioners.


Permanency
Syntax: cast 'permanency' <object>

This spell allows the transmuter to infuse his essence into the object,
making any temporary affects permanent. Unfortunately, the exertion is
extremely draining to the caster, and requires a great deal of time for rest
and regeneration before the spell may be cast again.

It is highly sought-after to make items permanently blessed and fireproofed.
Return to Top


Pick Lock
Syntax: pick <object>
Syntax: pick <door>
Lock picking is one of the prime skills of thieves, allowing them to gain

devastating at low levels.

sapping its strength and causing horrific suffering, possibly leading to
death. It is a risky spell to use, as the contagion can spread like
wildfire if the victim makes it to a populated area.
Return to Top


Poison
Syntax: cast poison <victim>
Syntax: cast poison <object>
This spell reduces the strength of the victim by two, as well as reducing the
victim's regeneration rate. It may also be used to poison food, drink, or
a weapon in a fashion similar to envenom ('help envenom'), but with
drastically reduced effectiveness.


Poison Dagger
Syntax: poisondagger <target>
This is a skill of assassins which enables them to permanently poison any
dagger type weapon that doesn't already have certain permanent effects
flags. The drawback is that the poison damages the weapon and will

Return to Top


Polevault Jump
Syntax: pvjump <direction>

staff. It does hurt when you fail, and of course it takes a bit more effort
than just walking but it is a very proven way to avoid a room full of people
wanting to wear your blood.


Portal
Syntax: cast 'portal' <target>
The portal spell is similar to gate, but creates a lasting one-way portal to
the target creature, instead of transporting the caster. Portals are
entered using 'enter' command, as in 'enter portal'. Portals cannot be made
to certain destinations, nor used to escape from gate-proof rooms. Portal
requires a special source of power to be used, unfortunately the secret of
this material component has been lost... Portals can traverse the boundries
of the continents. Use look in <portal> to see destination.


Possess Familiar
Syntax: cast 'possess familiar' cat
cast 'possess familiar' raven
incorporate

This spell allows a witch or a warlock to take control of their pet,
inhabiting its body and seeing through its eyes. While possessing a

Naturally, the witch or warlock must have a familiar already for this spell
to work.


Potionsmash
The bandit being a bit of a dirty fighter can try to snatch potions out
of a victim's inventory and smash them on the ground. Being an unexact
science, you never know how many potions a bandit might nab from you though
holding too many potions gets harder and harder.
Return to Top

a target, dealing considerable damage. The barbarian must be slightly injured
before he or she is enraged enough to use it.

with a messy poultice of magical plants. While not as effective as true
clerical healing, this primitive healing art can be useful indeed.

to transport himself to his or her bind stone. Though it cannot be used
in combat, it can be used during PK hostility.

time.


Pugil
Using a staff, the attempt is made to do a quick combination hit with
alternate ends of the staff. The is done with a quick punching movement
from each hand.

chance of doing 4 attacks per round). However, the amount of damage
done per hit is reduced.
