"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Spell:

Glimpse


Level: Second
Range: 6"
Duration: None
Area of Effect: One Creature
Components: V,S
Casting Time: 1 Segment
Saving Throw: None

When this spell is caster the magic user is able to peek into the  mind of another creature/spell caster and glimpse their remaining  memorized spells.The caster is then presented with options to  either enhance their spells or affect the victims.

After glimpsing the targets remaining spells the caster is then  permitted to pick a spell to replace Glimpse. The spell can be of  any level that they have an open slot for. They can also pick  from any spell they know and not just one that had been  previously memorized.

If the caster does not elect to do this then they can opt to  instead force one of the spells they saw using Glimpse from the  mind of the victim. If this option is used then the victim is  while be able to see into the mind of the caster. In addition to  seeing the memorized spells of the caster there is a 3% chance  per point of intelligence that the victim can return in kind in  regards to removing a spell. If this occurs then the caster can  remove another spell and the process can again repeat until the  victim does not have an option to remove spells or elects not to.

Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the  write ups last, were all written up or conceived of back in the  80's so the terminology may not appropriate for anything other  than 1e and depending on how well I did back then it may be  slightly off for that as well. If there is any duplication of  spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :)  Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on  me. If anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please  let me know in advance and all I ask is proper credit.
