* We feel that Detect Magic should be an innate ability of all casters, in the same way that a chef can determine ingredients through taste. We plan to revisit this spell in Phase II.

**Project Image combines effects from Illusion and Divination. We judge that the Divination portion is the more critical, so have placed it in this school.

** Druidcraft, Prestidigitation, and Thaumaturgy are included in Neutrum as 'training spells' with minor effects from many schools that any caster can learn.

*** Guards and Wards is a problematic spell, because while it is powered by Neutrum connective magic, the myriad spell effects are borrowed from five other Schools. This spell is scheduled for a rewrite in Phase II.
