Spells are the bread and butter of The Reincarnation. They are used for a variety of purposes: summoning units, casting offensive and defensive enchantments both in battle and out of battle, allocation of resources, and more. The spells in the spell book are seen as one a basic resource for each mage, because the amount of spells that you have, determines your basic spell level. Once acquired, you'll never lose the spell and never lower basic spell level, as long as you keep your mage alive.

Each color can learn their own Simple, Average, Complex, Ultimate and Ancient spells. They can learn their own adjacent color's Simple, Average, and Complex spells, and finally can learn their opposite color's Simple and Average spells. Phantasm is the exception: they can learn every color's Simple, Average, and Complex spells, so their spell level is the highest of all the colors. Ancient spell scrolls are hard to learn for adjacent and opposite colors - but spell level helps. Admins have their own set of spells, and so have the Gods.

Spectrum.jpg Each color has two adjacent and opposite colors, which you can imagine as adjacent and opposite points of the pentegram diagram below, or as the diagrams to the side, looped. Spectrum.jpg

Gods and Skills and the Black Market can add some extra spell level. Every color's Simple, Average, Complex spells are available on the Black Market under Exotic Mageware. This is one of two places Ancient spells can be learned; the other method is from using specific Unique items that have a fixed percentage chance of allowing your mage to learn an Ancient spell. Bidding on the spells on the Black Market is a guaranteed way to learn the spell if you have the highest bid, while the Unique Items carry a risk of destroying your entire mana reserve.

Mana cost for spell casting
Spell TypeOn-ColourAdjacent ColourOpposite Colour
Ultimate100%not possible

Casting adjacent and off-color spells is more mana costly than on-color, especially for off-color complex spells. Casting the spell of off-color spells further carries a risk of failure, depending on the complexity of the spell. If the casting fails, turns and mana and are consumed without benefit. Opposite color casting carries a greater risk of failure than adjacent color casting. The risk of failure increases with the complexity of the spell. It decreases with Spell Level. Failure rate can be further reduced by the Phantasm enchantment Icon PHANTASM.gif Concentration. Concentration also reduces research time for spells (for all colors) and increases off-color summoning yields (for Phantasm mages).
