Baldur's Gate 2: Mage Talk

 30 April 2008  |   24 July 2018

Ever wondered whatever the heck those crazy Arcane spellcasters say every time they unleash one of their spells upon you? It's actually very simple and stands for the chosen spell's spell school (abjuration, evocation, ...). Male and female voices are of course different, and the pronunciations vary too sometimes (Vita Mortis [Carero]/[Calia]?). All formulaes are actually Latin, and Latin is often pronounced differently depending on the dialect. Here is a quick overview:

1. Illusion
"Veritas, Credo, Oculos" = "The truth, I believe, with my eyes"
Listen to the Spell School!
2. Alteration
"Praeses, Alia, Fero" = "Protecting, another, I bring this forth"
Listen to the Spell School!
3. Necromancy: "Vita, Mortis, Careo" = "Life, and death, I am without"
Listen to the Spell School!
4. Divination
"Scio, Didici, Pecto" = "I know, for I have studied, with my mind"
Listen to the Spell School!
5. Abjuration
"Manus, Potentis, Paro" = "A hand, powerful, I prepare"
Listen to the Spell School!
6. Evocation
"Incertus, Pulcher, Imperio" = "Uncertain, beautiful things, I command"
Listen to the Spell School!
7. Conjuration
"Facio, Voco, Ferre" = "This I do, I call, to bring you forth"
Listen to the Spell School!
8. Enchantment
"Cupio, Virtus, Licet" = "I want, excellence, allowed to me"
Listen to the Spell School!
