Standard Book of Spells Grade 2
Year Two Spellbook
“The second instalment of the indispensable guide to your basic magical needs.”
The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 is one of the books written by Miranda Goshawk. It is a required textbook for the second year. It can be purchased at Flourish and Blotts bookstore for one Galleon.
In the first volume of this series readers were instructed on the correct use of a wand to perform the most basic spells. This second volume demonstrates techniques that will enable the more advanced student to build magical power at the tip of a wand before it is released. This technique when mastered enables the casting of far more powerful spells but the reader is warned that this is not without risk and therefore requires the utmost concentration. Students are encouraged to experiment with this technique being wary that lapses in concentration can result in painful side effects.
Chapter 2 – Flipendo
Knocks over an opponent or object. The incantation for the knockback jinx is ‘Flipendo’ .This jinx is the most utilitarian of Grade 2 spell, in that it will allow the caster to ‘knock back’ an opponent or object and can also be used to push and activate certain magically charmed switches. Like many Grade 2 spells, Flipendo can be targeted.
Chapter 3 – Wand-Lighting Charm
Lights dark areas and reveals hidden panels. To illuminate the end of a wand, the caster must call out the incantation “Lumos.” If correctly incanted, the end of the wand will then illuminate and cast light in the immediate vicinity of the caster. It can also be used to illuminate unseen entrances.
Chapter 4 – Severing Charm
Severs ropes and tapestries. As is the case with Grade 2 spells, the Severing Sharm has a variety of uses. For example, it can be cast on certain tapestries or wall hangings to reveal heretofore hidden entrances.
Chapter 5 – Disarming Charm
Reflects an opponent’s spell back at them. The Disarming Charm lies at the heart of a good dueling technique. It allows the duelist to rebound an opponent’s spell in the hope that the rebounded spell will strike the opponent and leave him or her vulnerable to further attack.
Chapter 6 – Skurge Charm
Clears ectoplasm. Ectoplasm is a sticky, green substance left behind by ghosts and has been known to make doorways impassable. There is a way of clearing away ectoplasm without resorting to a can of Mrs. Skower’s All-Purpose Magical Mess Remover, and this is with an effective Scouring Charm such as the Skurge Charm.
