In Runequest Thursday #3: A New Sorcery (Part 1), I posted the first part of the system I developed for sorcery in my ongoing Runequest River of Cradles campaign. In it, I gave you the basics for the System, and Sorcery Skill and its uses, as well as how to cast and manipulate spells, the Sorcerer's Staff, etc. In this article we will get into the meat of things, Spells and how they can be manipulated.
