SPELLS


In order to cast a spell in a spell Matrix, you must roll a threadweaving test to weave the required number of spells. See Magic Rules for more details. The following list will list the spells in Shadowrun 5th Edition Core Rulebook with the number of threads required for each spell. It will also detail new spells available to the characters that are not in the Core Rulebook.

Note: Drain is only used if the magician or shaman is casting Raw Magic (without using a spell matrix)

Core Rulebook Spells

These Spells are available to characters at Character creation and are easily purchased or found in game.
