KEEN EDGE
School transmutation; Level sorcerer/wizard 3
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Targets one weapon or 50 projectiles, all of which must be together at the time of casting
Duration 10 min./level
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless, object); Spell Resistance yes (harmless, object)
This spell makes a weapon magically keen, improving its ability to deal telling blows. This transmutation doubles the threat range of the weapon. A threat range of 20 becomes 19–20, a threat range of 19–20 becomes 17–20, and a threat range of 18–20 becomes 15–20. The spell can be cast only on piercing or slashing weapons. If cast on arrows or crossbow bolts, the keen edge on a particular projectile ends after one use, whether or not the missile strikes its intended target. Treat shuriken as arrows, rather than as thrown weapons, for the purpose of this spell.
Multiple effects that increase a weapon's threat range (such as the keen special weapon property and the Improved Critical feat) don't stack. You can't cast this spell on a natural weapon, such as a claw.
Diminished Effects The spell’s duration is reduced to 1 minute/level.
Heightened Effects The spell’s target becomes weapons or groups of 50 projectiles, and you divide the duration in 10-minute intervals among the targeted weapons or projectiles.

KI LEECH
School necromancy [evil]; Level cleric/oracle 3, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 3
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 minute/level (D)
You place your spirit in a receptive state so when you confirm a critical hit against a living enemy or reduce a living enemy to 0 or fewer hit points, you can steal some of that creature's ki. This replenishes 1 point of ki as long as you have at least 1 ki point in your ki pool. This does not allow you to exceed your ki pool's maximum. This ability does not stack with similar abilities (such as the steal ki ability of the hungry ghost monk).
This spell has no effect if you do not have a ki pool.
Diminished Effects The spell’s duration is reduced to 1 round/level.
Heightened Effects When you confirm a critical hit against a living enemy or reduce a living enemy to 0 or fewer hit points, you replenish 2 points of ki as long as you have at least 1 ki point in your ki pool.

KI SHOUT
School evocation [sonic]; Level bard 5, sorcerer/wizard 7
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range close (25 ft + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one living creature
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw Fortitude partial Spell Resistance yes
With a guttural bark, you unleash a sudden blast of sonic energy that strikes your opponent. The target takes 1d6 points of sonic damage per level (maximum 20d6) and is stunned for 1 round; a successful Fortitude save reduces the damage by half and negates the stun.
Diminished Effects The target takes 1d6 points of sonic damage per level (maximum 15d6) and is staggered for 1 round; a successful Fortitude save reduces the damage by half and negates the staggered condition.
Heightened Effects The spell can target any type of creature, but only living creatures must make a Fortitude saving throw or become stunned.

KING'S CASTLE
School conjuration (teleportation); Level paladin 4
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, DF
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one creature
Duration instantaneous

Diminished Effects The spell’s range is reduced to 10 feet.

LANGUID BOMB ADMIXTURE
School enchantment (compulsion) [mind-affecting]; Level alchemist 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw Will negates (special, see below); Spell Resistance yes
Upon drinking an extract created with this formula, you make a significant change to your magical reserve that modifies the nature of all bombs you create and throw during this extract's duration. This effect on your magical reserve has no effect on any discoveries that you use to modify your bombs, but you can only have one admixture effect (formulae with the words “bomb admixture” in their titles) active at a time. If you drink another bomb admixture, the effects of the former bomb admixture end and the those of the new one become active.
When you throw a bomb and hit a direct target, it affects up to four creatures—the creature the bomb hit directly, and up to three other creatures damaged by the splash (alchemist's choice). Those creatures must succeed at a Will saving throw or become fatigued.
Diminished Effects Only the direct target of the bomb must succeed at a Will saving throw or become fatigued.
Heightened Effects All creatures damaged by the splash must succeed at a Will saving throw or become fatigued.

LEASHED SHACKLES
School evocation [force]; Level inquisitor 4, sorcerer/wizard 6
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range medium (100 ft. +10 ft./level)
Target one creature
Duration 1 minute/level
Saving Throw Reflex negates; Spell Resistance yes
You create shackles of force that attach to the target's limbs. You designate an object or location within 30 feet of the target for the shackles to anchor themselves to; this must be the ground, a wall, or a sturdy structure for the anchoring to occur. The target is entangled, and cannot move more than 30 feet from the anchor point of the spell. The shackle itself cannot be attacked (though it can be dispelled), but if the object or area it is attached to is broken, the target is free to move away (though it is still entangled).
Diminished Effects The spell’s range is reduced to close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels).
Heightened Effects The DC to dispel the shackle is equal to 16 + the spell’s caster level.

LEGEND LORE
School divination; Level bard 4, inquisitor 6, sorcerer/wizard 6, witch 6; Domain knowledge 7
Casting Time see text
Components V, S, M (incense worth 250 gp), F (four pieces of ivory worth 50 gp each)
Range personal
Target you
Duration see text
Legend lore brings to your mind legends about an important person, place, or thing. If the person or thing is at hand, or if you are in the place in question, the casting time is only 1d4 × 10 minutes. If you have only detailed information on the person, place, or thing, the casting time is 1d10 days, and the resulting lore is less complete and specific (though it often provides enough information to help you find the person, place, or thing, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time). If you know only rumors, the casting time is 2d6 weeks, and the resulting lore is vague and incomplete (though it often directs you to more detailed information, thus allowing a better legend lore result next time).
During the casting, you cannot engage in other than routine activities: eating, sleeping, and so forth. When completed, the divination brings legends (if any) about the person, place, or things to your mind. These may be legends that are still current, legends that have been forgotten, or even information that has never been generally known. If the person, place, or thing is not of legendary importance, you gain no information. As a rule of thumb, characters who are 11th level and higher are “legendary,” as are the sorts of creatures they contend with, the major magic items they wield, and the places where they perform their key deeds.
Diminished Effects The spell only returns information on a person, place, or thing of “mythic” importance (for example, characters who have an effective character level of 16 or higher, the sorts of creatures they contend with, and minor and major artifacts).
Heightened Effects The spell’s casting time becomes 1 standard action. However, you can only pose a single question about some person, place, or object, then cast the spell. If the person or object is at hand or if you are in the place in question, you receive a vision about it by succeeding on a caster level check (1d20 + 1 per caster level; maximum +25) against DC 20. If only detailed information on the person, place, or object is known, the DC is 25, and the information gained is incomplete. If only rumors are known, the DC is 30, and the information gained is vague. After this spell is complete, you are fatigued.
Notes This spell combines the effects of the following spells: legend lore and vision.

LEND JUDGMENT, GREATER
School divination; Level inquisitor 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, DF
Range touch
Target one ally
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)
You create a conduit of divine knowledge and outrage between you and an ally. That ally gains the benefit of all your active judgments (as do you). If you cannot use a judgment (for example, if you are not in combat, are frightened or unconscious, and so on) or change judgments, the ally loses the benefit of the judgment.
Diminished Effects The target ally only gains on half (minimum 1) of the benefit of all your active judgments for a maximum of 5 rounds.
Heightened Effects All allies within 10 feet of you at the time the spell is cast gain the benefit of all your active judgments. The center of the effect is mobile with you. Any affected creature loses the benefit of a judgment if you cannot use the judgment, you change the judgment, or they move out of the affected area.

LIFE BUBBLE
School abjuration; Level cleric/oracle 5, druid 4, ranger 3, sorcerer/wizard 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M/DF (a bit of eggshell)
Range touch
Target creatures touched, up to one/level
Duration 2 hours/level; see text
Saving Throw Will negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)
You surround the touched creatures with a constant and moveable 1-inch shell of tolerable living conditions. This shell enables the subjects to breathe freely, even underwater or in a vacuum, as well as making them immune to harmful gases and vapors, including inhaled diseases and poisons and spells like cloudkill and stinking cloud. In addition, the shell protects subjects from extremes of temperature (per endure elements) as well as extremes of pressure.
Life bubble does not provide protection from negative or positive energy (such as found on the Negative and Positive Energy planes), the ability to see in conditions of poor visibility (such as in smoke or fog), nor the ability to move or act normally in conditions that impede movement (such as underwater).
When you cast this spell it has a total duration of 2 hours per caster level. You can divide this duration up in any manner you wish, not necessarily equally, between up to 1 creature per caster level.
Diminished Effects The spell’s target is reduced to one creature.
Heightened Effects In addition to the above effects, the targets gain cold resistance 5 and fire resistance 5.

LIFE CONDUIT, GREATER
School conjuration (healing); Level summoner 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 round/level
You utilize greater life conduit to share hit points with your eidolon. While this spell is active, you can spend a swift action to transfer 3d6 hit points between you and your eidolon, either taking damage yourself and healing your eidolon or healing yourself and damaging your eidolon. If your eidolon moves farther than 50 feet from you, this spell ends.
Diminished Effects You can transfer 3d4 hit points as a swift action.
Heightened Effects You can transfer 4d4 hit points as a swift action.

LIGHTNING ARC

Targets two creatures or objects which must be no more than 60 ft. apart

Saving Throw Reflex half; Spell Resistance yes (see text)
You generate an arc of lightning between two targets. The lightning deals 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (maximum 15d6) to both targets and any creatures in a line connecting them. The spell fails if there is no line of effect between the targets. Lightning arc sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals that have a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze.
Diminished Effects The spell deals a maximum of 10d6 points of electricity damage to both targets.
Heightened Effects Both targets must make a Fortitude saving throw or be stunned for 1 round.

LIGHTNING BOLT

You release a powerful stroke of electrical energy that deals 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to each creature within its area. The bolt begins at your fingertips.
The lightning bolt sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in its path. It can melt metals with a low melting point, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, or bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier shatters or breaks through it, the bolt may continue beyond the barrier if the spell's range permits; otherwise, it stops at the barrier just as any other spell effect does.
Diminished Effects The spell deals a maximum of 5d6 points of electricity damage to each creature within its area.
Heightened Effects Every creature within the spell’s area must make a Fortitude saving throw or be staggered for 1d4 rounds.

Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw special, see below; Spell Resistance special, see below
Upon drinking an extract created with this formula, you make a significant change to your magical reserve that modifies the nature of all bombs you create and throw during this extract's duration. This effect on your magical reserve has no effect on any discoveries that you use to modify your bombs, but you can only have one admixture effect (formulae with the word “bomb admixture” in its title) active at a time. If you drink another bomb admixture, the effects of the former bomb admixture end and those of the new one become active.
When you throw a bomb and hit a direct target, lashes of electrical energy are released from the bomb, coalescing on the bomb's direct target and up to three creatures that take damage from the bomb's splash (alchemist's choice). Those affected by the electricity must succeed at a Reflex saving throw or take 1d6 points of electrical damage each time they take a move action to move more than 5 feet for the duration of the effect. This effect does not ignore spell resistance.
Diminished Effects Only the direct target of the bomb must succeed at a Reflex saving throw or take 1d6 points of electrical damage each time they take a move action to move more than 5 feet for the duration of the effect.
Heightened Effects All creatures damaged by the splash must succeed at a Reflex saving throw or take 1d6 points of electrical damage each time they take a move action to move more than 5 feet for the duration of the effect.

LILY PAD STRIDE
School transmutation; Level druid 3

Range long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
Effect trail of lily pads behind you
Duration 10 minutes/level (D); see text
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no
Your every footstep creates aquatic plants capable of supporting your weight and that of any creature of your size or smaller that is following you. These lily pads only appear when you cross water or other liquids which do not immediately destroy plants. You can walk across these liquid surfaces without any fear of stumbling (though if knocked prone, dragged under, or otherwise pulled off your feet you still sink in the liquid). For the duration of the spell, any creature of your size or smaller can attempt to follow you by making a DC 10 Acrobatics check every round. Each such check allows it to move at half its normal land speed. If the creature takes a –5 penalty on its check it can move at its normal speed. If a creature fails an Acrobatics check, or if a creature that's larger than you attempts to follow, it falls through, damaging the plants. Each time a creature falls through, all subsequent creatures take a cumulative –5 penalty on their Acrobatics checks when traveling across that particular stretch of plants. As you move, the lily pads disappear behind you once you pass beyond the spell's range. Otherwise, they remain until the spell's duration expires.
Diminished Effects The range is reduced to medium (100 ft. +10 ft./level) and its duration is reduced to 1 minute/level.
Heightened Effects The lily pads can support any creature one size category larger than you and smaller, and a creature attempting to follow you must make a DC 5 Acrobatics check each round to follow you.

The veil affects a maximum of 24 Hit Dice of creatures. Creatures with the fewest HD are affected first. Among creatures with equal HD, those who are closest to the spell are affected first.
