Three New Spells From Hammersong's Legacy...

Good Morning, All:

I've been writing up a few new Swords & Wizardy spells for Hammersong's Legacy, as part of the alternate spell list for the "psychic mages". While these spells are only usable by Mind-Mages within the setting itself, others may find them useful for their own Swords & Wizardry campaigns. Please review them at your leisure, and let me know your thoughts.

Detect Thoughts
Spell Level: Magic-user (Mind-Mage), 2nd Level
Range: 60 ft
Duration: 10 minutes

You can perceive the surface thoughts of any mind in the area, simply by spending a round focusing on your target. The target can prevent you from reading his thoughts with a successful saving throw. Creatures of animalistic intelligence have simple, instinctual thoughts that you can pick up. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it.

Discern Lies
Spell Level: Magic-user (Mind-Mage), 3rd Level
Range: 30 ft
Duration: 10 minutes

Each round, you concentrate on one subject, who must be within range. If the target fails a saving throw, you know if the subject deliberately and knowingly speaks a lie by discerning disturbances in its aura caused by lying. The spell does not reveal the truth, uncover unintentional inaccuracies, or necessarily reveal evasions.

Telepathic Bond, Lesser
Spell Level: Magic-user (Mind-Mage), 1st Level
Range: 30 ft
Duration: One hour

Upon casting this spell, you forge a telepathic bond with another intelligent, willing creature of your choice within range. You can communicate telepathically through the bond regardless of language. No special power or influence is established as a result of the bond. Once the bond is formed, it works over any distance (although not from one plane to another).
Hope You Enjoy,
