The following is a list of magickal energy charts. Go through these to decide how much spell energy a spell will require before casting it.

|Per Planet Away||10,000|
|Per Solar System Away||100,000|

How large an area the spell affects from its center. Note that you can affect as many creatures as you want by calculating the range to the target furthest away from you, and then multiplying the appropriate amount on the chart below by the number of creatures you want to affect. Thus, if you want to cast a spell on 4 humans, and the furthest of them is 60 feet away, you spend 60 points for the range, and 20 more for the area of effect (4 Size 1 creatures at 5 points each), for a total of 80 points.
|Area of Effect||Spell Points|
|Smaller than 1/4 size creature||1|
|A 1/4 size Creature||2|
|A 1/2 size Creature||3|
|A 3/4 size Creature||4|
|Per Size of Creature*||5|
|Per 5 Pounds of Nonliving Target||1|
|Per Square Foot of Area||5|
|Per Mile of Area||4000|
|Per Planet or Dimension||10,000|
|Per Solar System||100,000|
|If target is Microscopic||50|
- A Normal human is considered Size 1
How long the spell will last.
|Instant Effect / No Duration||0|
