NEW SORCERY SPELLS

Detect Golems
Keywords: Information.
Full Cost: 4 or 9 points.
Casting Roll: Per.
Range: Unlimited.
Duration: Instantaneous.

With the basic (4-point) version of this spell, you can immediately sense all nearby golems, sorted by the direction to each one. The GM will roll against your Per (plus Talent), minus the range penalty to the nearest golem, and inform you if you succeed.
The improved (9-point) version of this spell works as above, except that you know the precise location of each golem. This allows you to cast spells on any of them for as long as each remains in that location – or for the next second, if one is already on the move.
Statistics: Detect (Golems; Cannot Analyze, -10%; Sorcery, -15%) [4]. The improved version adds Precise (+100%) [+5].
  
Golembane Weapon
Keywords: Weapon Buff.
Full Cost: 79 points.
Casting Roll: None. Use Innate Attack (Gaze) to aim.
Range: 100 yards.
Duration: Three minutes.

The weapon enhanced ignores DR of golems for the duration. This only applies to the natural DR of the golem, not one granted by buffs, additional worn armor, etc.
Statistics: Affliction 1 (HT; Accessibility, Only on weapons, -20%; Advantage, Golembane Weapon, +690%; Fixed Duration, +0%; Increased 1/2D, 10x, +15%; No Signature, +20%; Sorcery, -15%) [79]. Notes: “Golembane Weapon” is Imbue 3 (Limited Skill Access, One Skill, -80%) [8] + Unusual Training [1] + Penetrating Strike (VH) DX+10 [48], modifier with Accessibility, Only against golems (-80%), Cosmic, No die roll required (+100%), Magical (-10%), Reduced Fatigue Cost 1 (+20%), and Visible (-10%) for the total of 69 points.
