Cool, right? It matters who drew it, so you want Fantasmo the best pentagram drawer...

But, er, Pentagram is an IQ 15 spell, and a 16+ is an automatic failure on 3 dice. (So effectively, it's always a 3 dice vs 15 roll for any pentagram, no?)

So if we like the idea of different-strength pentagrams, how can this best be salvaged?
When it's time to make the IQ roll, the enchanter has a Lesser Wish banked up. And they get their IQ Aided to ridiculous levels. Then they burn their Lesser Wish to roll a 3 on that IQ roll.
