[Spells help] Magic Removal Spells Syntax: cast 'dispel magic' (room dispel) cast 'dispel magic'
cast 'cancellation' cast 'remove compulsion' These spells all remove magic effects from the target, however the goal of each spell is quite different. Dispel magic is an offensive spell, and as such, the victim receives a saving throw to avoid it. If the dispel is successful, each beneficial spell effect has a chance of being destroyed. Harmful spells are untouched by dispel. You may also attempt to dispel spells that are affecting the area around you such as gates, rifts, or other affects in a given room. To do this you must cast the spell without specifying a target. Cancellation has the ability to only remove harmful spell effects but it has less effect on some spells than others. This is not an attack spell and will only cancel harmful effects. While cancellation is good against many common maledictions such as feeblemind, sleep, slow and weaken, it is not a cure all. It has trouble removing compulsions that control the mind. Remove compulsion is similar to cancellation in that it is not an attack spell but it specializes in removing the compulsion effects that are hard to eliminate with cancellation. Examples of compulsions include charm person, domination, confusion, chaos, control undead and interdiction. Dispels may also be useful when fighting against animated or conjured creatures. Some spells cannot be dispelled such as poison or plague, which have dedicated curing spells, or magma spray which is non-magical once cast.
