The Mystic Arcana is a web of connections between the realms. Thus, the more you connect with the Deep Mystic Arcana the less in tune you become with other realmic energies. These spells count as regular mystic spells but have an additional effect. Casters will acquire an autofail die per successful Deep Mystic spell on future castings outside the Mystic Arcana. These dice expire after a full recharge or a good night's sleep, depending on whether the caster's body is organic or artificial.

"It started as a child's game, and now wars are waged with it" "I guess some people couldn't stop playing."
As a bonus action pulse the weave around you, sending ripples to those you are emotionally connected to or invested in. Focus on one person and you'll direct the pulse to them so long as you are on the same realm as they are. The further away, the more time it takes for the pulse to reach them. The pulse feels like a tap from the physical direction you are in from their orientation.

"Don't ask how I learned this one." "I imagine through much practice." "Sure, let's go with that."

"Oof! Seems a bit nippy out here." "For the last time, we are in space and that joke isn't funny!"

"One Billion Trillion frequencies in this universe to cycle through and still nothing of interest is going on!"
This spell allows the caster to twist their internal connections together to visualize sound as a spectrum allowing one to "see" sounds and conversations up to 100 meters away. Observation checks relying on your sense of hearing are made with +1 bonus dice. Focusing with an investigation check, the subject can "see" conversations through walls of acoustic resonant materials, up to 1 foot thick. For the duration, or until dispelled, the subject is considered blind when reading or trying to see something that doesn't reflect or generate sound.

"A door, once opened, can be swung in either direction." "That isn't how normal door hinges work." "?"
Allows you to bring your 1st dimensional presence into direct contact with a willing being, encapsulating their thoughts and feelings, effectively allowing them to understand things from your point of view. Can be inverted to understand another's point of view, but this knowledge is quickly forgotten. An unwilling being can attempt a Hard Judgement check to ignore your influence.
Casting: Instant, Duration: 72 hours, Range: Mentality of Caster in Miles (Minimum 3 Miles)
"A cord woven of many hairs is not easily sundered, such resilience we truly share." "So where is the 'mute' button?"
Bring the connections of your team together. By threading the connections of your team together you can connect up to 10 friendly beings in a mental network. Once a network is established, it can be renewed by the original caster if all members are willing. Unwilling members fall off the network at the expiration of the original cast. Recasting refreshes the duration.
A person in the network can choose to consciously speak to others in the group and be heard by all connected. Leaving the range does not remove the subject from the network, they will be able to communicate once they are in range again if the network is still active. Adding new members requires a recast.
Difficulty: Average | Hard
Casting: Instant, Duration: 1 Hour | 8 Hours, Cooldown: 10 minutes, Range: Touch
"My momma always said that if you can't stand the heat, use oven mits." "WE ARE FALLING INTO A SUN!" "So you are saying you forgot the oven mits?"
Hold the connection to your environment at a hard right angle and you will be surprised at what you can endure. While under the effects of this spell your body exists in its prime environment with all humidity, temperature, and barometric pressure being just right and nothing in the natural environment can change it. Spells or attacks that cause changes to these variables prompt you to make a contested arcanting check to keep your aura up. This does not protect you from arcane elemental damage.
Casting: 10 minutes, Duration: 1 hour, Cooldown: 30 minutes, Range: Touch
"Heck no, I won't go." - OB3
Allows you to plant yourself in the plane you exist and become immune to forced teleportation or dimensional gates/breaches. This prevents the subject from being able to open portals or gates as well.
Casting: Instant | 1 Round, Duration: 1 round | 2 rounds, Cooldown: 2 rounds | 4 rounds, Range: 3 squares AOE: none | 3x3
"Return to sender!"
Creates a whirlpool in the mystic arcana on a single square. Any arcana that passes through this square has the power returned to the realm it came from. Enchanted items are considered "sealed" from this effect and cannot have their power neutralized by this method. Taking a turn to prepare to cast creates a fissure with an area of effect.
Returned arcana from spells doesn't count towards the caster's energizing state.
Casting: Instant, Duration: 1 minute | Channeled, Cooldown: None, Range: Touch
"Once you find your center, everything falls into place." "Is that why I keep ending up on the ground?"
Brace yourself against the strands beneath your feet, the strands running through your head, the strands connected to your very essence and you will be unshakable. While under the effects of this spell, you cannot suffer negative penalties for Balance checks.
Ohhhhhhh I like it! A fun take on the magic :D I like the Dimension Tether XD
