The geomancer summons a luopan (a small orb that floats just above the ground that is a pylon of geomantic energies) within the spell range that has hit points equal to 10 x the geomancer’s level and a hardness equal to its spell level. This luopan emits the effect in the area of the luopan that affects specified targets. When the duration is over, the luopan is unsummoned.
The affected allies become smarter within the selective area. They gain the benefit as long as they’re within the area of the effect of the spell. The spell grants a +6 enhancement bonus to Intelligence, adding the usual benefits to Intelligence-based skill checks and other uses of the Intelligence modifier. Black mages (and other spellcasters who rely on Intelligence) affected by this spell do not gain any additional bonus spells for the increased Intelligence, but the save DCs for spells they cast while under this spell’s effect do increase. This spell doesn’t grant extra skill ranks.
