Looking for a Spell

Postby Monkoflords » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:46 am

One of the spells in the Warring Kingdoms for the Academy of the Light and Darkness appears to be in none of my books.

Anyone know where you can find the spell/ritual "Flim Flam"?

(Or given the name is it an elaborate joke? :P )

It should be in the basic rules.

The name is a joke, but the spell is not. ;)

Do you have a page number in the Core Rules? I can't find it.

Got something better:

That's the spell. They renamed it, but apparently forgot to change the entry.

Oh...that'd do it.

Thanks everyone (Albeit I don't quite get the joke, but still)

It's a german joke or rather play of words.
Originally, all the spells had little poems as the actual magic words your mage or you were supposed to recite. In this case it's:
"Flim flam funkel,
bring Licht ins Dunkel!"
The bold part is the actual name of the spell.

Its something like "glimmer flame and spark, create light where it was dark" 1-3rd edition spellrhyme.
a lot of spells kept parts of the first half as name. Ignifaxius, Bannbaladin, Salander etc.. ("Ignifaxius Flammenstrahl , Magisch Feuer schmelze Stahl" - Ignifaxius lance of flame, arcane fire melts steel (more or less. back then ignifaxius damaged armor for 1 point per 10dmg))
