Your natural armor soaks 2 points from any single source of damage. If the damage dealt from a single source would be reduced to 0, you take no damage (any subsequent source that would be reduced to 0 deals 1 instead, and then 0 on the next subsequent source, alternating in this way with each subsequent source). Whenever you rest to recover HP or wounds, you require supply equal to 1 gp per HP or wound to repair yourself.
As a reaction, you may make a spell check using Smart to dispel the magic of your enemies if you have not already acted in the round. You may absorb their spell before its targets are affected by the magic as long as your opponent is visible to you. To absorb an opponent’s magic, you must spend MP equal to the MP your opponent spent to cast the spell. As long as you have MP (and at the GM's discretion), you can create minor, illusory cantrips related to your maleficence. Such cantrips are instantaneous and harmless, and cannot duplicate the effects of any other spells.
Your communion with otherworldly realms has created a friendship with a being imbued of your maleficence that you may summon to your aid. It has 1d6 HP plus 1 per MP spent, 3 in all attributes (plus 1 per MP spent that you may divide among its attributes), and may use your skills where appropriate. All of its attacks have the peril of your maleficence, and it acts independently of you. Your summon is returned to its plane of existence for a day's rest whenever it is slain. Conjuration spell checks explode on a 5 or a 6.

You must touch a living victim to deal HP damage with this maleficence. For each point of damage the maleficence deals, you recover 1 HP. If this maleficence would deal zero damage, the victim is fatigued until after their next action.
You can manipulate magnetic fields in the area of effect as if you were a powerful magnet. You can control your magnetic influence as attraction or repulsion. If magnetism manipulated in this way is used to cause harm to a target, apply the peril of the force maleficence.
You create a pair of spacetime portals that serve as doorways to each other. The portals can be any size, up to that of a personal space. You may place either portal anywhere in the area of effect. (If they are placed too close together or subject to destructive force, the portals immediately blink out of existence.)
You shape your maleficence into a cloak that surrounds you or your target in magical energy. Choose a type: cold, fire, sound, lightning, force, or light/shadow. For the duration of the spell, magical sources of harm from the chosen element are reduced by 50%, rounded down in your favor. You may cast this spell multiple times to improve the protection (down to 1 point of damage) and choose different elements each time. If you are attacked (whether successfully or not), your maleficence inflicts a peril matching the element chosen.
You shape your maleficence into a mesmerizing pattern: glittering dust, hypnotic colors, or stunning pyrotechnics. Each target in the area of effect who can see the pattern must make a spell check or be stunned as long as they behold it. You must concentrate on the working of the spell, or else your targets are immediately released from its hypnotic effect.
Haste & Slow
You shape your maleficence into a temporal whiplash that affects a number of targets equal to the MP you spend in the area of effect. If slowed, victims always act last, move at 1/2 their movement rate (a personal space rather than a melee space), and make Deft checks at disadvantage. If hasted, targets act before those who are not hasted, move at twice their movement rate (an encounter space rather than a melee space), and make Deft checks at advantage.
Mend & Unmend
Your magic repairs a mundane, inanimate object that is broken to its original state. The area of effect may be scaled up to affect all objects within a melee or encounter space, but you must spend 1 MP per each additional object beyond the first. Armors are restored for 1 AP per MP spent. If cast upon Clockwerk, this spell recovers 1 HP per MP spent. You may reverse this spell to age an object into disrepair or damage armor in the same way. Clockwerk are entitled to a spell check to resist, in this case.
You conjure into existence a physical sanctuary of your imagining which occupies the area of effect. This sanctuary functions as a safe space for you and as many companions as can fit inside to seek shelter and recover for 1 hour per MP spent. When you cast this spell, you may choose to increase the spell's duration by 1 hour for each space you decrease its area of effect, down to a personal space. The sanctuary is magically protected from mundane elements (rain, snow, heat, etc) and contains an environment pleasing to the spellcaster. It can have many physically locked portals (such as windows or doors) as MP spent—make a spell check to set a TN for intrusion—but is otherwise as vulnerable to attack as any mundane structure would be.
You manifest the existence of a phantasm with tangibility in the area of effect, but by default only you and the targets of the spell believe in its existence. All others must make an opposed spell check to believe. For example, you create a phantasm of a bridge that only you and your party perceive to be real; all others may not cross it unless they succeed in an opposed spell check against you and have reason to believe it exists.

Choose a limb before making an attack, in lieu of dealing damage. If the attack is successful, your opponent drops any object or weapon carried by the limb you target.
Kornei Modn Vieraus, a scholar you grew up with in the Gilders’ Polytechnic. He suffered from a malfunctioning lodestone (think faulty heart/heart condition) all his life. When you discovered The Pattern in the Clockwerk tomb, you tried to use it to heal his lodestone, but the experiment ended in tragedy, and his lodestone was destroyed. You carry a copy of Kornei’s pattern in your researc...
The Pattern is a magical tablet made of an unknown material. It contains inscriptions said to be etched by the Artificer himself. You have spent the years decoding the runes in your leather-bound ledger with all your research notes from the Gilders’ Polytechnic. You believe The Pattern contains the sacred formula that defines the Clockwerk’s very design
The nameless Clockwerk tomb discovered beneath Arcanum, containing The Pattern and ancient scripture from the Artificer. Was it an old laboratory of his? You stole The Pattern to prevent the Amber Council from handing it over to Queen Madeleine II and her treasury.
Kornei was your dearest childhood friend. Your attempts to save him resulted in the total failure of his lodestone. Was it hubris, or a fault in the Artificer’s Pattern? Either way, you copied Kornei’s circuitry in the hopes you may one day bring him back.
