I want to create a spell that can create a big wooden statue. The statue should not be basic and should be seen as a work of art.
As long as I want to create the exact same statue, this spell is simple to design: A CrHe spell Base 3 with a Size+1 modifier.
But... I wanna be able to create different statues with the same spell. Such as a man wielding a sword, or an old guy reading a book.
For now I have two leads:
In the Covenants supplement, it may fit in the Craft-Magic category. But Craft Magic is for Rego magic and not Creo. There is a sentence saying:
Creo magic draws on the realm of Forms to produce things, which are always at least roughly right.
I don't know how to apply it to Creo magic.
In the Corebook, there is an example explaining how to use Requisites.
Additional effects may not require a requisite if they are purely cosmetic. Thus, a spell that creates fire that looks like flaming skulls does not require an Imaginem requisite.
A spell that allowed the caster to choose how the fire looked would, because that flexibility is more than a cosmetic effect.
It would mean that I have to add an Imaginem requisite if I want to choose the shape. But would it mean that I don't have to do a Finesse Roll anymore?
