Force Projection is a single target knockdown spell that uses the standard maneuver roll, but is difficult to resist. The caster's strength with Force Projection increases with training in Minor Mental spell ranks and with Mental Lore, Manipulation.

Force Projection is more difficult to resist than Elemental Wave, and can knock flying creatures out of the air.

Lore Benefit

Training in Mental Lore, Manipulation increases its effectiveness by an unknown factor. However, it is known that the benefit is skill, not rank, based, and that 100 skill (24 ranks) provides more of an increase to its effectiveness than the protection provided by most defensive spells which improve maneuver defense.

Other Uses

This spell also opens the graveyard gate near Wehnimer's Landing.

Magical Items and Scrolls

Force Projection (1207) has increased effect with Minor Mental spell ranks.

If cast from a magic item or a scroll, the effective spell rank is determined by the larger of either the user's natively trained Minor Mental spell ranks, or a phantom spell rank calculated based on Magic Item Use or Arcane Symbols, respectively. This calculated rank is identical for all activation verbs.

Effective Spell Rank (MIU/AS)
0.5 per MIU/AS rank up to caster level
0.33 per MIU/AS rank up to 2x caster level
0.1 per MIU/AS rank above 2x caster level
