Here is a complete list of all the spells in Eschalon: Book I, with the descriptions as printed within the game. Possible spoiler for people who like to discover new spells on their own (which is why this list was not printed in the User's Manual). Green represents first level (easy) spells, Yellow second level (moderate), and Red is third level (difficult) spells.
The spell information listed here should be considered more accurate than the spell description in the game. Due to balance adjustments, a few of the in-game spell descriptions may not be 100% accurate.

Caster projects a fireball towards his target. Effect is 4-7 points of fire damage per casting level, affecting both living and non-living targets. The concussion of the fireball's blast also produces collateral damage to surrounding creatures and objects.
Causes the caster to blend with the environment, making him harder To hit. Duration is 20 rounds per casting level.
This spell concentrates heat onto the lock mechanism of a door or chest, softening the metal components of the lock and causing them to fail. Higher quality locks require a more powerful casting level as the quality of the metal and craftsmanship of the lock are less susceptible to heat damage.
When cast upon a trap or trapped object, waves of atmospheric pressure compress upon the trap forcing it into mechanical failure. Most traps, especially those of simpler design, are susceptible to these rapid fluxations of pressure and can fail or be remotely triggered through the casting of this spell. The stronger the casting level, the better chance there is of the trap being eliminated. This spell may be cast multiple times on the same trap in effort to disarm it.
This spell allows the caster to set an anchor point anywhere in the world, and then later recast the spell to open a portal back to that anchor point. Each casting level represents a different portal anchor point, so the more locations you wish to anchor, the more Mana it costs to teleport back to that location.
