When this spell is cast the magic user will cause any bonuses that the targets might have for any reason to be reversed. This will affect anything except permanent pluses such as pluses to hit points.
The spell will cause any bonuses to hit or armor class to be reversed. It will also affect saving throw bonuses as well as any pluses from magic items that affect combat or saving throws. This means that armor with a +3 is now treated as having a -3 and that a +1 sword now has a -1 to git and on damage. This spell has the odd effect of reversing negative bonuses as well. If a victim has a cursed weapon that is -2 it would become a +2 weapon and a character with negative attribute modification will have those reversed while under the spell effect.
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.
