I am the channel through which your wish shall be fulfilled. You may ask for a wish I can repeat, or you may ask for a wish that will happen once only. Decide.

– summoned Djinni

Limited Wish is a very potent spell that allows the spellcaster to potentially alter the actuality of the subsistence in a limited way.

DescriptionEdit

The Limited Wish is a very potent but difficult spell. It will fulfill literally, but only partially or for a limited duration, the utterance of the spellcaster. Thus, the actuality of the past, present, or future might be altered (but possibly only for the wizard unless the wording of the spell is most carefully stated) in some limited manner. The use of a Limited Wish will not substantially change major realities. The spell can, for example, restore some Hit Points lost by the wizard. Greedy desires usually end in disaster for the wisher. Lastly, the wiser the wizard, the better chance that <PRO_HESHE> will choose the right wording. Wizards with low Wisdom will more often than not meet with disaster when asking for a wish.

GameplayEdit

  • In classic versions, you can initiate talk to the summoned Djinni with other companions aside from the caster; In enhanced editions, the djinni can’t be interacted with and will only talk to his summoner if s/he is within his visual range, he will disappear after 45 secs have passed
  • For some wishes, the interactor will instantly cast a spell that carries the effects; for some others, the game will create the desired wish effects regardless of the interactor's state
