High Seas of Saraphiel
2ndLevel - Augment Familiar
While I have been intrigued further by the concept of a Spell Knot, my recent inclusion to the Brotherhood of the Three Moons has caused the path of my studies, at least briefly, to return to more familiar paths. Or perhaps I should say, more Familiar paths. In preparation for the summoning of my Arcane Familiar, the Brothers have seen fit to teach me a spell which can be used to aid and protect my Familiar during times of danger. This is a linear-syntactical spell based on the Rune Sabh, but modified with Noz in an Adverbial position.
This spell follows the linear-syntactical rules I have already understood. All that remained here for me was to understand the necessary Intent and combination of elements. In this case, speaking NozAdi, with Name of the Familiar, while holding Sabh with Intent to increase the Familiar’s attributes in every fashion – thereby bolstering and strengthening it –will cause the magical substance which is the essence of the creature to become more firmly knit together and thereby able to perform greater tasks, resist more damage, and in general, surivive more difficulties for a duration directly related to my ability to focus on maintaining this bolstering.
I wonder how difficult a thing it would be to apply this same transmutation, or at least one similar to it, to my fellow crew, or even myself. The thing would not be very practical unless it can be fashioned in such a way as to NOT require my active attention – I will have to study this further.
