    M:tG and Realm Spells

    I don't know if anyone here has heard of the card game by wizards, MAgic
    the Gathering but the cards could be good sources for realm spell ideas.
    There are less powerful spells like Lightning Bolt which already exisit
    as normal spells in AD&D. One spell I thought of from a card is called
    Flame Wave. Very devestating spell.

    Would reuire high levels of caster and source.
    I'd kill about everything in its path.

    There are other cards that would make good realm spells but I can't
    think of any off the top of my head. I'll see if I can dig up some more
    from my 600+ card collection (probably 800+)

    M:tG and Realm Spells

    What was said about M:tG lands and BR lands is not entirely correct.

    MAgic's Mana is like regency points.
    Magic lands are used like source holdings.

    On a Magic-AD&D relation: certian local enchantments and artifacts would
    make good regualr spells (briar shield) and magical items.


    Another good realm spell: Rampant Growth and its cousins could increase
    the source level is a province, but it could not exede the maximum
    source level for that province, based on the population level.

    For example: Erati the mage controls a small domain but manages to
    conquer a Squee's goblin province (2/5). Erati doesn't want golbins
    living in his domain so he pillages the province twice to make it a
    (0/5). In his next action Erati casts Rampant growth to improve the
    source level to (6). He casts Rampant growth on his next action to make
    the province a (0/7). Erati cannot use rampant growth since the province
    is an average forest. Later, Erati Rules the province to a (1/6). He
    can cast Rampant Growth on it but it's population level would drop by
    (1) so that the total is still 7 (the plants basically overrun the
    people's homes so they move away but are scuattered so they don't affect
    any other province level).

    Waht do you think?

    There are MtG cards that destroy target land (stone rain, rain of tears,
    etc) - that is not possible (at least easily done) in Birthright.


    > MAgic's Mana is like regency points.

    It can also be related to Source level (or Temple level).

    Lands are provinces.

    I agree.
