  • Arctic: Includes tundra, steppes, permafrost and ice caps and other infertile lowlands in cold climates.
  • Caverns: Includes all caves, tunnels, natural caverns, and other substantial underground areas.
  • Marine: Includes the sea and land adjacent to saltwater, estuaries, coastal marshes etc.
  • Highlands: Includes hills and mountains, moors, high plateaus.
  • Forest: Includes wooded environments, jungles and woods of any sort.
  • Plains: Includes grasslands, plains, pampas, savannah, prairie, veldt, and other more or less open and flat or rolling terrain. May include low hills where the land is open and not wooded.
  • Waste: Includes all deserts, wastelands, salt flats, and other infertile lowlands in mild to hot climates.
  • Aquatic: Includes freshwater environments as well as marshes, swamps, and land adjacent to freshwater rivers, lakes & ponds, etc.

The MA requirement of this College is 15.

28.2 Talents

Detecting Traps and Snares (T-1)
Experience Multiple: 150
Base Chance: PC + 1 / Rank
Storage: Potion
Target: Self
Effects: The Adept is attuned to the rhythms of Nature and, in a natural environment, may sense the presence of a hazard to their life or well-being. Generally this may be interpreted as a “bad feeling” about a person or an object, or a sense of foreboding about a situation. This talent operates continuously and unconsciously. The Adept may also add 2 + 2 / Rank to the chance of detecting an ambush (see Ranger) .

Herbal Lore (T-2)
Experience Multiple: 75
Storage: Potion
Target: Self
Effects: This Talent increases their chance of finding herbs (as per the Herbalist or Ranger skills) by 2% (+ 2 / Rank).

Experience Multiple: 100
Effects: The Adept adds 10% (+ 2 / Rank) to their chance of Tracking while outdoors.

28.4 General Knowledge Spells

Converse With Animals (G-1)
Range: 10 feet + 10 / Rank
Duration: 3 hours + 3 hours / Rank
Experience Multiple: 50
Base Chance: 45%
Resist: None
Storage: Potion
Target: Self
Effects: The Adept may communicate with fauna (whether verbally or symbolically, and to what extent, are left up to the GM’s discretion). Physical contact between the animal and the Adept increases the Base Chance of successfully casting this spell by 5. This spell has to be recast for each type of animal, for example talking to wolves does not allow the Adept to talk to tigers.

Converse With Plants (G-2)
Range: 10 feet + 10 / Rank
Duration: 3 hours + 3 / Rank
Experience Multiple: 50
Base Chance: 25%
Resist: None
Storage: Potion
Target: Self
Effects: The Adept can communicate with flora with which they are familiar. The mode and extent of communication is up to the GM’s discretion.

Controlling Animals (G-3)
Range: 10 feet + 10 / Rank
Duration: 30 minutes (+15 minutes per Rank)
Experience Multiple: 200
Base Chance: 20%
Resist: Passive
Storage: Investment
Target: Animal
Effects: The Adept controls the actions of any animal that does not successfully resist. It will serve them so long as they continue to concentrate. If they release the animal or their concentration is broken, it may attack them or flee. The chance to cast this spell is reduced by 5% if the Adept cannot speak to the animal. If the Adept cannot make eye contact, the Base Chance is reduced another 5%.

Blending (G-4)
Range: 15 feet + 1 / Rank
Duration: 1 hour + 1 / Rank
Experience Multiple: 50
Base Chance: 60%
Resist: None
Storage: Investment, Potion, Ward
Target: Entity
Effects: Once this spell is cast, the target must be in a natural environment and remain still in order for it to have effect. While remaining still, the target is not able to be seen by nonmagical means (i.e. as for invisibility). If the target moves, the spell ceases to work. However, if the target becomes still again during the duration of the spell, it will resume its effect. The duration of the spell refers to the time since casting, not the time that the spell is actually in effect (i.e. while the target is still). Keeping still will require (as a minimum) a 4 WP check every hour. The target may be required to make additional willpower checks at the GM’s discretion. The spell only has effect while the target is “still”. This means that the target is unable to move any of its external surfaces, with limited exceptions. Moving an external surface encompasses such actions as moving a limb, or opening and closing the mouth. Blinking and normal bodily movement caused by normal breathing will not constitute moving for the purposes of this spell. The following actions will automatically cause the spell to cease working: talking, spellcasting, triggering (subject to any revision of the Investment ritual), readying a weapon, altering facing in a hex, moving from the hex, using a silent language, or indeed any Action other than a Pass action (and Pass actions being restricted as outlined).
Note that it is not relevant if an observer would see the movement for the spell to cease working (e.g. moving hands behind back, or talking behind hand will both cause the spell to cease having an effect).

Walking Unseen (G-5)
Range: 1 foot + 1 / Rank
Duration: 1 hour + 1 / Rank
Experience Multiple: 100
Base Chance: 50%
Resist: None
'Storage: Investment, Potion, Ward
Target: Entity
Effects: The target of this spell may move unnoticed, not invisible. This means that it will not transmit light. As a consequence the target will cast a shadow (which may or may not be noticed depending on the lighting etc — even if noticed may not be connected to the target) and have a reflection in a mirror (or any reflective surface). However the target may not be noticed even if another entity is looking directly at him/her. It should be noted that a crystal of vision or similar would count as looking directly at the target, not as a reflection. An entity will get a perception check if the target becomes invasive on that entity’s senses (e.g. standing in a frontal adjacent hex, or standing behind the entity with the target’s hands over his/her eyes). Although the target is not invisible, it may be detected using any magical means for detecting invisible entities (e.g. witchsight). If the target of the spell be touched by another entity, or that entity’s possessions, then the spell is broken. The target of the spell may not break it voluntarily (other than by, for example, touching another entity).
Once broken the spell must be recast.

If a Ritual of Remove Curse is employed, Nature's Blight is considered a Minor Curse. A Ritual of Remove Curse must be used on each separate blight. Identical curse effects are not cumulative. The Adept may always choose to inflict a blight of lesser Rank than their actual Rank. The blights that the Adept may inflict are dependent on the Rank of the spell: Rank Curse 0–4 The victim will suffer hallucinations that will reduce their Perception by 5 in addition to any specific effects. The GM and the Adept must work out the exact nature of the hallucination at the time that the curse is made. Hallucinations should, however, be of a minor, generalised nature, seeing coloured lights in the distance, hearing sounds like the clanking of weaponry, smelling meat cooking from time to time, and so forth.

Rank Blight
0 - 4 The victim will suffer hallucinations that will reduce their Perception by 5 in addition to any specific effects. The GM and the Adept must work out the exact nature of the hallucination at the time that the curse is made. Hallucinations should, however, be of a minor, generalised nature, seeing coloured lights in the distance, hearing sounds like the clanking of weaponry, smelling meat cooking from time to time, and so forth.

20 Adept may choose an extra blight as the result of this Cast.

The duration of the protection is 30 minutes (+ 30 minutes / Rank) or until the target leaves the environment that the blessing is needed against. For example, Nature's Blessing of Rank 10 will reduce cold and ice damage by 3 and improve the target's chance of not slipping on ice by 10 while the target remains in a natural environment that is Arctic.

Once Cast, the Adept wholly enters the body of the target creature and may direct its actions. The PS, MD, AG & EN of the creature are somewhat compromised by this magic, so that they and any Ranks or abilities that they have are reduced to the minimum for a creature of its kind. The MA, WP, FT & PC are always the Adept's. Special totemic forms may be awarded by the DM which have better or more defined abilities and the Adept must keep accurate records of these.

The Adept may increase the length or height by 1 foot per Rank. The wall may not be cast on top of an entity. A human-sized hole may be made in the wall by causing 20 points of damage in one area. This damage need not come from a single attack. All "A" class weapons and most "C" class will have little effect on the tough springy vines. An entity forcibly pressed against the wall, or attempting to force their way through it will suffer [D + 2] damage for every Pulse they are so engaged.

The point of view of the Waters cannot be changed.

28.7 Special Knowledge Rituals

Commune with Nature
Experience Multiple: 300
Base Chance: 40% + 3% / Rank
Cast Time: 1 hour
Effects: The Adept may gain insight into the future by communing with the spirits of Nature. There is no possibility of backfire from this ritual. The performance of this ritual allows the Adept to exercise one of the following functions during its course:
Limited Precognition: This ritual produces the same results as for the Spell of Limited Precognition of the Mind College.
Divining Enchantment: The object or entity must be present for the entire duration of the ritual, and be within 5 feet (+ 1 / Rank). The ritual may not be resisted. The Base Chance is reduced by 5 for every week or part thereof since the spell that is being divined was cast. Permanent magic (e.g. invested items still with charges) or spells currently in effect carry no modifier. The Adept gains knowledge of those spells that fall within their cast chance. If the Adept can divine the spell, its exact name and college are revealed. If the spell is non-colleged in origin, its general effects are revealed.
Nature's Wisdom: The Adept may gain some understanding of the environment in which they are performing the Ritual within 1 mile (+ 1 mile / Rank) radius.
Only one of these two options may be performed at each casting of the Ritual.
