Spells that are different from common spells. Epic spells
are usually custom-made. Epic spells
do not take up normal spell slots, but instead are gained and used under a completely separate progression.
Epic Spell Slots:
A character must have an available epic spell slot
to prepare or cast an epic spell, just as he or she needs a normal spell slot for a nonepic spell. A character doesn't gain epic spell slots
of his or her level and class, however. A character gets one epic spell slot
for every 10 ranks he or she has in the relevant Knowledge
When creating an epic spell
, a character can modify the basic
use of a seed
. Each modification is called a factor
, and most factors
increase the difficulty of casting the spell.
The opposite of a normal factor
, a mitigating factor
modifies the spell but makes it easier to cast.
Every custom epic spell
created by spellcasters begins with a base effect called a seed
. Seeds are the fundamental building blocks of epic spells
