Spell Pricing

A balance had to be struck between making magic expensive enough not be commonplace and keeping mages on the level of other well-off merchants. No pricing system will be set in stone. I reserve the right to make a spell less available but it would be tremendously helpful to have a base that we can operate off of 95% of the time.

(magic points to cast + number of prerequisites) x $5 x (Magery level required, minimum 1) = price in $

The casting must be limited to a maximum of 60 magic points and this doesn’t gaurantee you’ll find a caster but it is likely. Spells beyond that are possible but will require a great deal of work to coordinate skilled spellcasters to circle cast.

Here are some examples of spells that may be desired in no particular order. I did not calculate spells that would target an unwilling individual as most merchant mages would be highly resistant to selling that service without some kind of gaurantee of safety.
