Limited Wish is a very potent spell that allows a wizard to potentially alter the actuality of the past, present, or future in a limited way.

Limited Wish is unique in that many of its effects are not easily reproducible with other spells. Limited Wish can give you two potent free magic items (Full Plate +2 and Glasses of Identification) as soon as you can cast the spell. This makes early scrolls of this spell very valuable. It also grants you early access to level 9 spells without an additional cost, which can make some earlier encounters much easier.

In-game descriptionEdit

Limited Wish
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 he will choose the right wording. Wizards with low Wisdom will more often then not meet with disaster when asking for a wish.
