Fjölga (Grow)
Keywords: Buff
Full Cost: 62 points
Casting Roll: None
Range: Touch
Duration: 1 minute

The spell increases one of the character’s basic attributes (ST, DX, IQ, or HT) by 2 points. It is not cumulative with itself. Any skills and Secondary Characteristics dependent on the attribute is increased appropriately.

Statistics: Affliction 1 (Increase Attribute, +560%; Sorcery, -15%; Fixed Duration, +0%; Reduced Duration 1/3, -10%; Touch, -20%) [62]

Fotnafjätr (Fasten foot)
Keywords: Area (Leveled), Resistible (ST)
Full Cost: 58 points + 5 points/level
Casting Roll: None. Use Innate Attack+4 to hit
Range: 100 yards
Duration: 30 seconds

The spell creates a kind of glue that makes everyone in a 2-yard radius get stuck in the ground. By succeeding with a ST check, the subject can move 1 yard – this counts as their full Move, so they must take the Move and Attack maneuver if they wish to attack as well.

Statistics: Affliction 1 (Sessile, w. Cannot Kick, -60%; Area Effect, +50%; Based on Different Attribute, ST, +20%; Cosmic: Irresistible Attack, +300%; Extended Duration, x3, +20%; Persistent, +40%; Sorcery, -15%) [58] + 5 points/level

Gnistlogir (Candle)
Keywords: None
Full Cost: 1 point
Casting Roll: None
Range: Touch
Duration: Indefinite

The spell causes a small flame to appear in the caster’s hand. The flame can ignite flammable materials (treat it as doing 1 point of burning damage for the purpose of making things burn), but does not harm the spellcaster. In addition, the candle reduces darkness penalties to -5 in a 2-yard radius around the caster.

Statistics: Accessory: Candle [1]

The spell allows the subject’s voice to be changed according to the sorcerer’s whim. The voice can sound strong, ferocious and powerful, or it can be made to sound soft, kind or childish. The sorcerer can also distort the voice to where it’s impossible to understand what the subject says.

Statistics: Affliction 1 (Grants Advantage, Voice, +150*%; Grants Disadvantage, Cannot Speak, +25%*; Fixed Duration, +0%; Reduced Duration, 1/20, -25%; Sorcery, -15%; Touch, -20%) [22]
* Both these have a 50% Cosmic enhancement that allows the sorcerer to choose between them.
If the person can still make noise, you want the 15-point version of Cannot Speak. The -25-point version means you can't produce any noise at all (effectively: you have no vocal chords).

Cosmic, +50% is far too expensive for that effect; it's effectively +60% to your pricing — but Selectivity, +10% (p. B108) is what you need except more powerful than that: it would allow you to use any combination of the enhancements on the advantage, or all of them simultaneously.

Although by the description, that make sense: if it can distort their voice into a beautiful sound that's still impossible to understand, then you want the following:

Affliction 1 (Advantage, Voice, +100%; Disadvantage, Cannot Speak, +15%; Fixed Duration, +0%; Reduced Duration, 1/20, -25%; Selectivity, +10%; Sorcery, -15%; Touch, -20%) [17].
