Spell Name: Bluestride's Stored Momentum

Spell Level: Six.

Spell Effect: Once the enchantment is operative, it will 'charge' momentum for one minute after sunset, and will retain the charge for three days before wearing out. To charge momentum, the wielder of the enchanted object must swing it during the time when it charges: all the momentum and force that would be delivered by the strikes within that minute are channeled into the one strike that follows the speaking of the magical formula.
The average strike from a well-charged object can utterly destroy any small object save the hardest gems and the most rare metals. The cardinal example of this spell in action is that used by some dwarven mages who wish to close off a tunnel with a bang. They use the charged strike against a stone wall, and the rock within a ped of the stricken point cracks and falls in on itself. The rock closest to the striking point is turned into nothing but a cloud of rocky dust.

Enchantment Procedure
This is one of the most simple, if time-consuming, of the enchantments. First, three of the object intended to be enchanted must be obtained. Each must then be submerged in standard Magical Absorbtion Potion (One part Wizardleaf, four parts water.) for a week. Then, all three must be charged, as per procedure above, for a full hour. After this, two must be merged into one object (See Phase Merge for details) and then that one must be covered with the ground-up remains of the remaining object. After this, the object must be stored in a chamber completely bereft of air current for a day, and then charged for another hour, with the wizard chanting the Enchantment Formula the whole while. Following this procedure, the enchantment will become active in three days.

Casting Procedure
Once the object is charged, merely speaking the Casting Formula will usually suffice to trigger the enchantment.

Reagents
None required save those used in the enchantment process. Re-enchantment can be done by simply taking something of the same material of the object, grinding it to dust, and then placing it in Magical Absorption Potion for a week. Then, all that remains is to take the resulting paste/crystals/mud and wrap the object in them for a day, following which the spell is good as new.

Enchantment Formula
Alán'kyreán, most accurately translated as Move-wait.

Casting Formula
Alán'styrán, most accurately translated as Move-Be, or Be Moving.

Magical School: Enchantment Magic, Earth Magic (Can be adapted to Wind Magic with some minor reworking)

Spell Class: Permanent Enchantment

Casting Time: Under a second.

Duration of Enchantment: The enchantment will last for a full month until it needs to be renewed.

Duration of Effect: One strike. After that, the object returns to its previous, not-quite-as-lethal self.

Countermeasures/Enhancing Measures: The spell can be countered quite easily by simply dodging the enchanted strike. The only thing that enhances the spell is charging it for an additional period of time: however, three charge periods are the spell's limit of power.

Origin/History: This spell was not known to exist in Sorren prior to the Archmagus Bluestride. It is evidently one of the first spells he taught to the young Khaelvan, and it since has become one of the foremost weapons in a traveling wizard's arsenal. The reasons for this are quite simple. While a group of theives or brigands is likely to be capable of taking down a wizard, none of them wants to be the one whose broken body is found all over the tree that broke his fall.

The spell is lost. You get only one shot, but it's a doozy.

Is this an actual Earth school spell? Or is it part of the Earth class of the Imbuing school (looks more like imbuing than enchanting), hence being part of the Raw state of magic rather than the elemental?

My sincerest Pardons for intruding my great Magic Masters, but (like most things concerning the Santharian magic system) this seems a bit foggy to me. Exactly what type of objects could be imbued with this spell?

To Timeras: Anything big enough to swing and store said momentum. Theoretically, you could create the world's best battering ram this way... if you had tireless crews, enough Wizardleaf to cover a square mile, and a whole lot of time on your hands.

Remember what we discussed for the other magic states? It's not imbuing being part of the Earth school, but Earth class being part of the Imbuing School, a Raw State magic school.
