Ported from the previous site. I posted almost all entries in the thread, so I won't be bothering with quote blocks for any posts except those by others.
So /forum/witches popped up on "Go Exploring" on the front page when I arrived today, and I realized I'm still interested in the project. One of the things it needs -- and which could be useful to other campaigns -- is a large enough list of incantations to make a useful character. So I'm starting this thread to store at least one incantation of each of the eight schools for each of the levels 0 through 9. I'll probably come up with duplicates, but I'll consider the project "done" when I have one each of all the basic types.
In order to produce incantations useful for low-level characters, I'll be breaking one rule from http://www.systemreferencedocuments.org/resources/systems/pennpaper/dnd35/soveliorsage/unearthedIncantations.html , which is that incantations should be 6th to 9th level. Roughly, I'll be dividing them into 0th to 2nd level, 3rd to 5th, and 6th to 9th, with the DCs for the checks involved being lower for the earlier tiers. Otherwise, I will be adhering to those guidelines as closely as possible.
As an example of a low-level incantation with a reduced DC, I would draw your attention to summon wizard's familiar -- it could be interesting to consider this class feature to be in fact a remnant of primitive incantational wizardry, with a school of Conjuration, a level of 0, a DC of 10 and no backlash component, so that any wizard can take 10 casting it. (And there are different incantations for the different caster classes, which explains why not everyone can just pick up a familiar.)
