I know Magery 0 didn't exist then but another way to look at it is Clerics "used" and "cast" spells as if they were in a high mana area and high mana did exist back then.

In fact, Classic: Magic 2e p 95's "Spells of other colleges can be learned, and used as prerequisites, but not cast except in high-mana areas." reinforces this view.

Now what spells can a non-mage learn but not use (cast) in low and normal mana areas? Spells that do not require Magery 1 or higher.

This may have been the inspiration for Mana Enhancer which didn't appear in Classic until Conpendium 1 in 1996.
Help make a digital reference for GURPS by coming to the GURPS wiki and provide some information and links (such as to various Fanmade 4e Bestiaries) . Please, provide more then just a title and a page number.
