Some spells just simply aren't as useful or powerful as others and now we have a method to balance this out: Augmentation.

Spell Augmentation Table

When a Spell is cast a character now has the option of discarding extra Spell cards to increase (Augment) the original Spells effect. Each Spell has a Augmentation Cost of 1 or 2 means how many Spells it will need discarded for it to be augmented. A character can only discard Spells from his hand and not from other sources and a Spell can be Augmented more than once.

An Example

For example let's take a character with the Destruction and Speed spells (Augmentation Cost: 1) and Aquisition (Augmentation Cost: 2). This gives him multiple options.

He can cast Destruction and...

not discard any other spells and just cast it as usual

discard Speed or Acquisition to Augment it once (which lets it affect two cards)

discard Speed and Acquisition to Augment it twice (which lets it affect three cards)
He can cast Speed and...

not discard any other spells and just cast it as usual

discard Destruction or Acquisition to Augment it once (which extends its duration by a turn)

discard Destruction and Acquisition to Augment it twice (which extends its duration by two turns)
He can cast Aquisition and...

not discard any other spells and just cast it as usual

discard Destruction and Speed to Augment it once (which lets it affect two objects)

Special Cases

There are just a few exceptions to these rules and six Spells require special attention.

Finger of Death - 2
Finger of Death is just too powerful and needed weakening. Augmenting it allows it to take an extra Life.

Preservation - 2
Add a Life counter to the a Follower or Enemy affected. If they would be destroyed remove the Life counter.

Teleport - 2
Move to the space of your choice on the opposite side of the Storm River if you wish.
Transmute - 1
Transmute is overpowered and needs to be toned down a notch. Augmenting it allows it to affect one extra object.

Warp Gate - 2
If Augmented put this Spell on the board and now treat it as a Place.
It will not fade away if a player uses it but can be destroyed like any other Place on the board.

Water Walking - 2
Move to the space of your choice in the same region if you wish.
Way ot Lotus - 2
Gain an extra +1 Craft bonus and a +1 bonus to Strength and Craft if you fight while your Astral form is abroad.

Minor Rule Changes

1. Spells cannot be Augmented in the Ruins or Cursed Glade.
