IWDification: Arcane Spell Listing

IWDification is a mod to bring some of the elements of Icewind Dale into the Baldur's Gate series of games. A lot of this project is based upon the work of the IWD-in-BG2 conversion project, which later formed the backbone of IWDEE.

The mod is currently an open beta so expect some bugs here and there. Please report them on the forums so that they can be addressed.

Changes to Existing Spells

The original BG2 spell Emotion: Hopelessness has been replaced by its IWD counterpart Emotion, Hopelessness. The most notable changes are a smaller area of effect and a fixed duration. This has been done mainly to pave the way for the full suite of Emotion spells (Hope, Courage, Fear) being added.

The fifth level series of elemental summoning spells, Conjure Lesser Air/Earth/Fire Elemental, have been replaced by their IWD counterparts. The most notable difference is that these spells now last longer and there's no longer any 'mental combat' or chance of losing control. A water elemental spell is also added; see below.

Polymorph Self now offers additional forms of polar bear, winter wolf, and boring beetle. The beetle is only available for EE games or the vanilla game with Infinity Animations installed.

New Spells

The complete list of spells added by the Arcane Spell Pack component are as follows:

Expeditious Retreat

iconExpeditious Retreat
(Alteration)

Level: 1
Range: 0
Duration: 3 rounds
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell doubles the caster's normal speed for a short period of time... usually long enough to escape. Other movement-altering effects, such as Haste and Slow, cannot affect the caster while this spell is in effect. While Expeditious Retreat is active, the caster cannot attack, cast spells, or use any items or special abilities... <PRO_HESHE> can only run.

Decastave

iconDecastave
(Evocation)

Level: 2
Range: 0
Duration: 3 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 2
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell creates a staff of force in the caster's hand. It is treated as a magical weapon, doing 1d6 Hit Points of damage per hit, and it can hit creatures that require +1 weapons to hit. It is a staff, however, so if the caster does not have a proficiency in staff weapons, then the Decastave is used at a penalty. The staff also has the power to drain a target of 1d2 Hit Points on every strike. These Hit Points are added to the caster's, but they can only heal damage the caster has taken; they will not raise <PRO_HISHER> Hit Points beyond <PRO_HISHER> normal maximum.

Cat's Grace

Cat's Grace is only available for EE games or regular BG2 games with TobEx installed.

iconCat's Grace
(Alteration)

Level: 2
Range: Touch
Duration: 1 hour/level
Casting Time: 2
Area of Effect: 1 creature
Saving Throw: None

This spell magically increases a target's Dexterity. The amount depends on the target's class: Rogues gain 1d8 points, warriors and wizards gain 1d6 points, and priests gain 1d4 points. If a character has more than one class, the larger die is used. Cat's Grace cannot raise a target's Dexterity past 20.

Icelance

iconIcelance
(Evocation)

Level: 3
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 3
Area of Effect: 1 creature
Saving Throw: Special

This spell fires a magical lance of ice at a target of the caster's choosing. It automatically hits, inflicting 5d6 points of cold damage and forcing the target to make a Save vs. Spell or be stunned for 3 rounds.

Lance of Disruption

iconLance of Disruption
(Invocation)

Level: 3
Range: 100 ft.
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 3
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: 1/2

This spell shoots a lance of force, which travels from the caster to a specified point 100 ft. in the distance. Any creatures in the lance's path take 5d4 points of crushing damage plus 2 points of damage per level of the caster (maximum of +30). Victims can save vs. Spell for half damage.

Beltyn's Burning Blood

iconBeltyn's Burning Blood
(Necromancy)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/2 levels
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 1 creature
Saving Throw: Neg.

This spell turns a target's blood to flame, doing 3d4 Hit Points of damage every round and driving the victim berserk with pain. The target gets to save vs. Spell every round; if successful, the damage and berserk state are negated. This spell does not work against undead or extraplanar creatures that do not have blood (such as elementals). If the creature is resistant to fire, this resistance will lower or nullify the damage from this spell.

Shadow Monsters

iconShadow Monsters
(Illusion/Phantasm)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

This spell shapes material from the Demiplane of Shadow into illusionary monsters. Up to six shadowy creatures can be summoned at once, but their total Hit Dice will normally not exceed the spellcaster's level.

Emotion, Courage

iconEmotion, Courage
(Enchantment/Charm)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 hour
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: None

This spell creates the emotion of courage within the area of effect. All creatures affected by the spell gain +1 to hit, +3 to their damage rolls, and +5 temporary Hit Points (which can put them above their maximum Hit Points). This spell nullifies all fear effects within the area of effect at the time of casting.

Emotion, Fear

iconEmotion, Fear
(Enchantment/Charm)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 5 rounds
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: Neg.

This spell creates the emotion of fear within the area of effect. All enemies who fail to save vs. Spell flee for 5 rounds. This spell nullifies Emotion, Courage within the area of effect at the time of casting.

Emotion, Hope

iconEmotion, Hope
(Enchantment/Charm)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 hour
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: None

Mordenkainen's Force Missiles

This spell is only available for EE games.

iconMordenkainen's Force Missiles
(Invocation)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 2-ft. radius
Saving Throw: Special

This spell creates a brilliant globe of magical energy that streaks forth from the caster's hand to unerringly strike its target, much like a Magic Missile spell. The wizard creates one missile at 7th level and an additional missile at every third level after 7th—in other words, two missiles at 10th level, three at 13th, four at 16th, and so on, to a maximum of seven missiles at 25th level. Each missile inflicts 2d4 points of damage to the target and then bursts in a 2-ft. radius concussive blast that inflicts 1 point of damage per level of the caster—for example, a 12th-level wizard could conjure two force missiles, each of which strikes for 2d4+12 points of magic damage. Creatures taking damage can attempt a Save vs. Spell to negate the concussion damage, but the impact of the missile itself allows no Saving Throw. The 1st-level wizard spell Shield will absorb the force missiles harmlessly, including the concussion damage.

Shout

This spell is only available for EE games.

iconShout
(Invocation)

Level: 4
Range: 0
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: 17-ft. cone with 15-deg. arc
Saving Throw: Special

Shout grants the wizard tremendous vocal powers, allowing <PRO_HIMHER> to emit an earsplitting roar from <PRO_HISHER> mouth in a cone-shaped area of effect. Any creature within this area is deafened for 9 rounds and suffers 4d6 points of magic damage. A successful Save vs. Spell negates the deafness and reduces the damage by half.

Vitriolic Sphere

iconVitriolic Sphere
(Conjuration)

Level: 4
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: Special
Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 5-ft. radius
Saving Throw: Special

This spell conjures a sphere of glowing emerald acid that the caster can direct to strike any target within range. When it reaches its target, the sphere explodes and drenches the victim in potent acid. The victim suffers 1d4 points of acid damage per caster level, to a maximum of 12d4 points of damage. After the initial damage, the victim must save vs. Spell to avoid more damage. If unsuccessful, the victim continues to suffer acid damage in the following rounds, sustaining two less dice of damage each round. For example, an 8th-level wizard inflicts 8d4 damage with this spell on the first round, 6d4 on the second round, 4d4 on the third round, 2d4 on the fourth round, and the spell ends on the fifth round. Each round after the first, the victim is entitled to a Save vs. Spell to avoid further damage.

The vitriolic sphere also splashes acid in a 5-ft. radius around the primary target. Any creatures within the splash radius must save vs. Petrification/Polymorph or suffer a splash hit that inflicts 1d4 points of damage per every five levels of the caster. Splash hits do not cause continuing damage.

Shroud of Flame

iconShroud of Flame
(Invocation)

Level: 5
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/2 levels (special)
Casting Time: 5
Area of Effect: 5-ft. radius
Saving Throw: Neg.

This spell causes a creature to burst into flames if it fails a Save vs. Spell. The creature will burn for 2d6 points of fire damage every round, and gouts of flame erupt from the burning target, causing any creatures within 5 ft. to take 1d4 points of fire damage from the flames. Anyone hit by the victim's flames must also make a Save vs. Spell to avoid contracting the shroud themselves. The shroud of flame dissipates if the caster and target are no longer in the same area. This spell is particularly useful in dispersing packs of trolls and frost salamanders.

Demi-Shadow Monsters

iconDemi-Shadow Monsters
(Illusion/Phantasm)

Level: 5
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 5
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

This spell is similar to the 4th-level wizard spell Shadow Monsters, except the summoned creatures are much more powerful.

Summon Shadow

iconSummon Shadow
(Conjuration/Summoning, Necromancy)

Level: 5
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 5
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

This spell summons three 4-HD shadows. The shadows will obey the orders of the caster, attacking <PRO_HISHER> enemies or performing tasks until the spell expires or the shadows are slain.

Conjure Water Elemental

iconConjure Water Elemental
(Conjuration/Summoning)

Level: 5
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 turn/level
Casting Time: 9
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

This spell allows the caster to summon an 8-HD elemental from the Elemental Plane of Water and bind it to <PRO_HISHER> will. This elemental will fight on behalf of the caster until the spell duration expires or the elemental is destroyed.

Antimagic Shell

iconAntimagic Shell
(Abjuration)

Level: 6
Range: 0
Duration: 1 turn/level
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell surrounds the caster with an invisible barrier that moves with <PRO_HIMHER>. This barrier makes the wizard immune to any magical attacks, but it prevents <PRO_HIMHER> from casting spells.

Antimagic Shell also dispels deafness and feeblemindedness in the caster.

Lich Touch

iconLich Touch
(Necromancy)

Level: 6
Range: Touch
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: Special

This spell confers the powers of a lich's touch and a lich's immunities upon the caster. The wizard gains immunity to paralysis and fear while the spell is in effect, and <PRO_HISHER> hands glow with an unearthly blue radiance that does 1d10 cold damage to a target and paralyzes them unless a Save vs. Paralysis is made. This spell has no effect on undead.

Monster Summoning IV

A Yeti is one af the available summons on EE games. Vanilla games with Infinity Animations installed can also summon yetis.

iconMonster Summoning IV
(Conjuration/Summoning)

Level: 6
Range: 20 ft.
Duration: 5 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 6

Level: 6
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: 1 creature
Saving Throw: Neg.

This spell fires an orb of cold at a creature that inflicts 1d4+2 points of cold damage per level of the caster. If the target makes its Save vs. Spell, however, they have dodged the orb and avoided all damage.

Shades

iconShades
(Illusion/Phantasm)

Level: 6
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

Shades is similar to Shadow Monsters and Demi-Shadow Monsters—it allows the caster to shape material from the Demiplane of Shadow into illusionary creatures. These shadows are tougher than the shadows summoned by Shadow Monsters and Demi-Shadow Monsters, and they will obey the caster until the spell expires or they are slain.

Darts of Bone

iconDarts of Bone
(Necromancy)

Level: 6
Range: 0
Duration: 5 rounds
Casting Time: 5
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell creates nine darts that can be used by the caster and cannot be unequipped so long as the spell is in effect. The darts are +3, do 1d4+3 missile damage, and a creature struck by a dart must save vs. Death or take 2d6 magic damage and have its Strength reduced by 3 for 5 rounds. Strength reduction is noncumulative, and failing a save while the reduction is in effect will not extend its duration. The caster's weapon proficiency with darts (or lack thereof) has no effect on the darts' chances to hit a target.

Soul Eater

This spell is only available on EE games.

iconSoul Eater
(Necromancy)

Level: 6
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 5
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: None

This spell deals 3d8 magic damage to all living creatures within a 14-ft. radius. Any creatures that die as a result of this damage are obliterated, and their essence is transformed into a 3-Hit-Dice skeleton under control of the caster. Also, for each creature that dies in this manner, the caster receives a +1 bonus to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution for 1 turn. Soul Eater has no effect on undead, constructs, and elemental creatures.

Trollish Fortitude

iconTrollish Fortitude
(Necromancy)

Level: 6
Range: 0
Duration: 2 turns
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: The caster

(Conjuration/Summoning)

Level: 7
Range: 20 ft.
Duration: 6 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 7
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

With the casting of this spell the wizard summons 1d3 5th-level monsters. These appear within spell range and can be commanded to attack the caster's opponents until the spell duration expires or the monsters are slain.

Malavon's Rage

iconMalavon's Rage
(Evocation)

Level: 7
Range: 0
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: 1/2

Malavon's Rage was created by the dark elf sorcerer Malavon. It shoots darts of pure energy out from the caster's body in all directions, harming friend and foe alike. The small wedges of magic do 20d4 points of piercing damage (save vs. Spell for half) to everything caught in their path. This spell is especially useful when a wizard is surrounded by enemies.

Acid Storm

iconAcid Storm
(Evocation)

Level: 7
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 1 round/level
Casting Time: 7
Area of Effect: 12-ft. radius
Saving Throw: 1/2

This spell unleashes an acidic downpour on the area of effect, doing 1d4 points of acid damage each round for the first three rounds, 1d6 points for the next three rounds, and 1d8 points for each round thereafter. Moving out of the area of effect does not stop the damage—the acid adheres to the skin, and any creatures in the area of effect when Acid Storm is cast continue to suffer acid damage as long as the spell duration lasts. Creatures make a Save vs. Spell every round after they have been hit by the cloud—if successful, they only take half damage (for that round only).

Seven Eyes

This spell is only available on EE games.

iconSeven Eyes
(Abjuration)

Level: 7
Range: 0
Duration: 2 turns
Casting Time: 7
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell conjures forth seven magical orbs that float in a ring above the caster's head. Each eye has a defensive and offensive ability, though once either one is used, the eye will lose its power. The powers of each eye are described below.

Eye of the Mind: This orb protects the caster against mental attacks such as charm, emotion, and fear. The eye can be expended as the 1st-level wizard spell Charm Person, bringing a humanoid creature under the caster's control for 1 turn (Save vs. Spell negates).

Eye of the Sword: This eye deflects the first physical damaging attack that strikes the caster. The eye may be expended as the 1st-level wizard spell Magic Missile, creating up to 5 missiles (one for every two levels of experience besides the first) that each strike a target for 1d4+1 magic damage.

Eye of the Mage: This eye absorbs one manifestation of fire, electrical, cold, or acid damage. The eye can also be expended as the 3rd-level wizard spell Lightning Bolt, dealing 1d6 electrical damage per level (capped at 10d6) to all creatures in its path.

Eye of Venom: This eye halts any one attack or effect that could poison the caster. The eye can also be expended as the 4th-level priest spell Poison, dealing 20 points of damage to one creature over a period of 20 seconds (Save vs. Poison negates).

Eye of the Spirit: This eye blocks one instant-death magic attack (Death Spell; Finger of Death; Power Word, Kill; Slay Living; Destruction). The wizard may instead choose to expend the eye's power as the 2nd-level wizard spell Ray of Enfeeblement, dropping a target's Strength to 5 (Save vs. Spell negates).

Eye of Fortitude: This eye blocks one stunning, deafness, blindness, or silence effect. It may alternatively be expended as the 4th-level wizard spell Shout, dealing 4d6 magic damage and deafening creatures within a 35-ft. cone (Save vs. Spell halves damage and negates deafness).

Eye of Stone: This eye shields the caster from a single petrification attack. It can also be used as the 3rd-level wizard spell Hold Person, rendering humanoids of man-size or smaller immobile for 1 round/level (Save vs. Spell negates).

Suffocate

iconSuffocate
(Alteration)

Level: 7
Range: Visual range of the caster
Duration: 4 rounds
Casting Time: 7
Area of Effect: 7-ft. radius
Saving Throw: Special

This spell draws the breath out of all creatures within the area of effect. Creatures that do not breathe are unaffected. Suffocating creatures suffer -4 to Armor Class, -4 to hit, -6 to Dexterity, one less attack per round, half movement rate, and take 4d8 points of magic damage per round. A successful Saving Throw negates all effects but 2d8 points of damage for one round. The effects begin to fade when the creature moves out of the area of effect, although it can take a round for a character to catch their second wind.

Monster Summoning VI

iconMonster Summoning VI
(Conjuration/Summoning)

Level: 8
Range: 20 ft.
Duration: 7 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 8
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None

With the casting of this spell the wizard summons 1d3 6th-level monsters. These appear within spell range and can be commanded to attack the caster's opponents until the spell duration expires or the monsters are slain.

Mind Blank

(Abjuration)

Level: 8
Range: 0
Duration: 24 hours
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

In the interests of one's self-control and privacy, Mind Blank shields a creature's mind from almost any mental effect—charm, maze, feeblemind, confusion, fear, intoxication, berserk, hold, and petrification.

Great Shout

This spell is only available for EE games.

iconGreat Shout
(Invocation)

Level: 8
Range: 0
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: 1
Area of Effect: 17-ft. cone with 15-deg. arc
Saving Throw: 1/2

Upon uttering the Great Shout, the caster releases a stunning force from <PRO_HISHER> mouth in a 17-ft. cone. The Great Shout is extremely taxing and dangerous to the user. The shout drains 2d4 Hit Points from the caster, and <PRO_HESHE> must make a Save vs. Spell or fall unconscious for 1 turn. Creatures 5 Hit Dice and under caught within the Great Shout instantly die. All other creatures within the area of effect must save vs. Spell. Those who fail the save are stunned for 2 rounds, deafened for 4 rounds, and suffer 4d12 points of magic damage. Those who make the save are stunned for 1 round, deafened for 2 rounds, and suffer 2d12 points of magic damage.

Iron Body

iconIron Body
(Alteration)

Level: 8
Range: 0
Duration: 2 turns
Casting Time: 8
Area of Effect: The caster
Saving Throw: None

This spell transforms the caster's body into living iron, granting <PRO_HIMHER> several powerful resistances and abilities. While the spell is in effect, the caster is 100% resistant to electricity and poison, 50% resistant to fire, and 25% resistant to crushing damage. Spells that affect respiration or the physiology of the caster are ignored. In addition, the caster's Strength is raised to 25, and the caster can attack twice per round with iron fists for 2d4 points of damage plus appropriate Strength bonuses.

Unfortunately, the caster's movement becomes slow and awkward, setting <PRO_HISHER> movement rate to 25% of <PRO_HISHER> normal, and <PRO_HESHE> cannot cast spells while Iron Body is in effect.

Monster Summoning VII

iconMonster Summoning VII
(Conjuration/Summoning)

Level: 9
Range: 20 ft.
Duration: 8 rounds + 1 round/level
Casting Time: 9
Area of Effect: Special
Saving Throw: None
