Do not start Fate to do this.
Right click on the Fate icon. Left click on Properties. Left click on Find Target... Open the Spells folder. Open the spells DAT file.
NOTE : before you change anything, make a note of all the values you intend to alter.
You can change values of spells to increase ( or decrease) their effectiveness. If you scroll through the spells list, you'll notice this: [SPELL], it marks the beginning of a spell, this: [/EFFECT],[/SPELL], marks the end of a spell.
These are what I have changed ..... so far. Range - increase for more coverage of spell
Cast Time - decrease - so you don't have to wait for a spell to be active
Mana - decrease - amount of mana a spell uses
Below Mana you'll see :~~~. Within the spell description are some numbers, these can be changed. A little further down you'll see :- , the values and description numbers should match. Example: : is the % chance of damaging enemies.
: is how long a spell lasts.
:-1 and :-10 is for the 1-10 damage.
:-0 is always 0.
:- is for the + max damage a spell does.
Some spells may have more values than others, so take your time to study the description and the values, so you'll know which one is for what.
One more thing ... : ) y'all like this one -- look for :MAGIC: set this number to 1, effectively allowing a level 1 character to use any and all spells !!! Yeehaa !!! Have fun everyone. : )
