The spell does different damage each round:

Reversal
Cost: 3 Significant Power Points
Range: Self
Duration: 3 rounds, or till triggered
Trappings: Crushing a piece of glass under the boots, drawing a circle in one’s palm
Requirements: Veteran

When used, the caster is protected against all spells that directly target him. Examples of this include Bolt, Slumber, Blind and such. Spells that affect an area still affect him, such as Blast, Entangle and etc.

Single target spells used on the caster will be reflected back at the original caster, but at a lower intensity. Spells that do damage become one grade lower (hence a 2d6 bolt does 2d4), and spells that require a roll gives a +2 bonus.

Reversal only protects against one spell. On a raise, this power protects against the next two spells.

Range: Smarts
Duration: 3 rounds (1 PP / round)
Trappings: Energy forcefield, aura of protective light

Duration: Permanent
Trappings: Manna from the dessert floor, vines that grow instantly that provides fruits

This useful spell conjure up enough food to feed 5 people, though the food is bland and unappetizing. On a raise, the food also satisfy the need for water. (As a Pawn of Mana is worth 100 silver, this is essentially spending 100 silver for 5 really nasty tasting food. Mages only used in the most dire situations, though there exists variants of this spell that conjure up far tastier food!)
