I remember finding a spell that now eludes me. It affected an area and any time someone in that area tried to cast a spell, the spell failed and the spell level was stored. When enough levels were stored, a predetermined spell was cast.

I seem to recall its name being weird, sounding more science than magic.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Absolutely official, and absolutely a spell. I had worked out the price of lining a place with a permanent version for an official-only game. The purpose was an one-way antimagic field, since nobody inside could cast but those outside could cast at them. \$\endgroup\$ – ThanosMaravel Apr 23 '19 at 10:23

Found it, Energy Transformation Field, Spell Compendium p80!

You create a lingering zone of transformative magic that absorbs magic energy from magic items or spellcasting and uses it to power another spell tied to that location.[...]

The field absorbs the magic of spells cast, spell-like or supernatural abilities that are activated, and magic items used within its dimensions.[...]

An energy transformation field has a single spell linked to it. When the field has absorbed spell levels equal to the spell level of its linked spell, it automatically casts that spell at a point within the field designated by you at the time of the casting of the field.[...]
