Spell Effect. The Enlighten Spell is used to make knowledge within the caster’s mind more accessible. Common misconception of this spell is that is increases knowledge, but it does not. Information can only be learned, not merely placed in someone’s mind by the use of magic. However, this spell does increase one’s ability to think and learn in both concrete and abstract ways. One of the most helpful effects of this spell, however, is its ability to increase one’s capacity for clear and uninterrupted concentration and clarity of mind. It can help to counterbalance the Confusion spell as well.

This spell can both be used on a caster or on another human or animal target. Some professors at the Ximaxian Academy use this spell to help their pupils both learn more quickly and to help them focus better. Students will also use this spell on themselves before tests or quizzes, or even before class. Sometimes those of higher levels however, have trouble being on the receiving end of this spell because of its requirements. Return to the top

Casting Procedure. The target of the Enlightenment spell should first relax. Usually those of higher level have trouble being a target to this spell because the spell involves the target lowering their defenses and allowing their cár’áll to be altered by a third party. For this reason, mages of higher levels can only cast this spell on themselves and, if they themselves suffer from confusion or a foggy mind, the spell will not be as effective.

The caster should take a moment to lock on to the cár’áll of their target and speak the magical formula, though some casters of higher levels can merely think the formula and get the same effect. The caster should then expand the wind cár’áll in the target’s own cár’áll, remembering to play upon the qualities of wind  dealing with clarity of mind and thought. Some casters have trouble keeping the cár’áll expanded, but sometimes re-iterating the spell can help. Return to the top

Range. The spell can be cast on almost anyone in view, but cannot usually be cast through another object. For example, the caster cannot generally cast this spell on someone who is inside of a house, even if the caster sees them through a window. Some mages of very high levels, however, can manage to cast this spell through other objects. Return to the top

Casting Time. Casting time usually only takes about 10 to 20 seconds. Return to the top

Duration. The duration of this spell depends upon the level of the caster and the target's use of the spell. Usually a lot of mental work can wear down the spell rather quickly. Times shown below are the maximum amount of time this spell lasts if the target doesn’t go through any strenuous mental activity:

It should be noted that Enlightenment spells begin to wear off as soon as they are applied and, for the best results, should be renewed even if the spell is cast by a high-level mage. Return to the top

Counter Measures/Enhancing Measures.
The Enlightenment Spell can be weakened by the Confusion spell and can be completely removed by the Dispel magic spell. This spell can be enhanced if the target has eaten foods containing a lot of wind cár’áll or if they have been in an area where they have been exposed to a lot of wind cár’áll. Return to the top
