Dragonlance - Hybrid Magic

Redan's Gorgon Eyes:

Invocation: Instant (5)
Range: Near missile (3)
Duration: Instant (1)
Area: Individual (1)
Spell effect: Painful (5)
Total: 15 spell points

Redan the Unforgiven, lord of the Stone Men from Southern Ergoth, created this spell to kill his enemies just by letting them look in his eyes. He casts this spell in himself, and every hero that gazes at his during that instant becomes petrified forever. It can be reverted only by Redan or another Hybrid spellcaster that knows Geomancy, Transmutation and Alteration. A hero can resist this fearful effect normally, considering it as an ordinary spell.

Tanya's Nature Lore:

Invocation: 1 minute (4)
Range: Melee (2)
Duration: 15 minutes (3)
Area: Small group (3)
Spell effect: Impeding (4)
Total: 16 spell points

Tanya Manntyr, master in the arts of both Sorcery and Mysticism, created this spell to get information from the very nature in a place. In any place filled with plants or animals, a mystic or sorcerer who casts Nature Lore learns one fact or have a question answered about that place or useful facts that happened there. It is limited by the creature's intelligence and memory - an old tree remembers more facts than a squirrel. During its duration, the caster can ask all questions he/she wishes to, and receive its answers.

Duncan's Body of Air:

Invocation: 30 minutes (1)
Range: Personal (1)
Duration: 15 minutes (3)
Area: Individual (1)
Spell effect: Painful (5)
Total: 11 spell points

Duncan Yarks, a sorcerer affiliated to the Legion of Steel, used this spell for the first time to escape from a prison in Neraka. This spell can change the caster's body into a cloud of gas, allowing the caster to pass through small passages or become lighter than the air, and thus flying. The caster can't either be attacked by physical means or attack while this spell is active.

Elunan's Pool of Healing:

Invocation: 30 minutes (1)
Range: Melee (2)
Duration: 1 hour (5)
Area: Large room (3)
Spell effect: 4 cards (4)
Total: 15 spell points

Elunan, one of the masters at the Citadel of Light, developed this hybrid spell to offer healing to a large amount of people. He turns an ordinary pond of a maximum size of a large room into a fountain of magical and healing waters. Heroes who spend 15 minutes in the pond heal one card or one Endurance point to a maximum of 4 cards. After the magic expires, the waters keep no magical properties. If the water is removed from the pond it loses all its magical properties. A maximum of 5 heroes can heal at the same time in a magical pond.

Muryll's Strength Jolt:

Invocation: 1 minute (4)
Range: Personal (1)
Duration: 15 minutes (3)
Area: Couple (2)
Spell effect: 20 points (5)
Total: 15 spell points

Muryll used this spell while fighting a behir in Nordmaar. This spells absorbs up to 20 points of damage caused by electricity, such as blue dragons' breath weapons and electromantic spells and convert it to strength using Channeling. Therefore, a 14-damage point attack to the target of this spell is converted to 14 points of Strength. The target of this spell receives the damage of the attack by flipping one card of the Fate Deck: if the aura is White, the damage is nullified; if the aura is Red the hero suffers half damage; if the aura is Black the hero suffers full damage. In case of a card of Dragons, the hero suffers double damage.

Growth/Shrinking:

Invocation: 1 minute (4)
Range: Melee (2)
Duration: 15 minutes (3)
Area: Individual (1)
Spell effect: Painful (5)
Total: 15 spell points

Since the gods left Krynn and took the High Sorcery and Priestly Magic with them, mages and mystics have been trying to replicate the old spells they had access to. Palin Majere and Goldmoon brought back the magic to Krynn, but many effects that were once possible now are very hard or impossible to replicate. An unknown hybrid spellcaster who died in Sancrist left a note to this Oracle, reporting a way to use Growth spells. By using the sphere of Alteration and the school of Enchantment, one can change the size of a living being or inanimate object by up to 80% more or less mass. The Oracle has asked both the Citadel of Light and the Academy of Sorcery to test this spell, and so far no answer was received.
