'''Contemplate''' is a command that lets a [[wizard]] focus on a spell, feeding all available [[guild points]] into it.  After enough contemplation, this can theoretically result in a [[tm]] in a skill that the spell uses.

==Usage==
+
 
+
{{Prebox|> contemplate Wurphle's Midnight Snack
+
You focus your mind on Wurphle's Midnight Snack.
+
<br>With Wurphle's Midnight Snack at the forefront of your mind, you enter a deep trance.
+
<br>You emerge from your trance.
+
<br>You feel Wurphle's Midnight Snack sitting in your mind, eager to be fed again.}}
+
 
+
After enough repetitions:
+
{{Prebox|> contemplate Wurphle's Midnight Snack
+
You focus your mind once more on Wurphle's Midnight Snack.
+
<br>With Wurphle's Midnight Snack at the forefront of your mind, you enter a deep trance.
+
<br>You emerge from your trance.
+
<br>You feel that you have contemplated this as far as you can for the moment.
+
<br>Your mind feels less crowded as Wurphle's Midnight Snack returns to its normal place.
+
<br>You feel exhausted from your ordeal; you should probably wait a while before contemplating Wurphle's Midnight Snack again.}}
+
You get the same message if you try to contemplate the same spell again immediately afterwards.
+
 
+
You can also use contemplate by itself, which will tell you which spell you're currently contemplating (helping you avoid cross-contemplation).
+
<pre>> contemplate
+
You have previously contemplated Torqvald's Illusion Generatrix.</pre>
+
 
+
==Cross-contemplating==
+
To cross-contemplate is to contemplate a spell, then contemplate a ''different'' spell before feeding enough gp into the first one.  This results in an [[intelligence]] penalty of -4 for about fifteen minutes, which is reduced to -2 for another twenty minutes or so, then reduced to -1 for another fifteen minutes or so.
+
 
+
This will happen even if the spell you're currently contemplating is no longer in your mind.
+
 
+
The [[Restore]] ritual will remove the stat penalty.
+
 
+
==Tms==
+
What a tm from contemplation looks like:
+
<pre>You focus your mind once more on Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention.
+
With Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention at the forefront of your mind, you enter a deep trance.
+
You emerge from your trance.
+
Saving...
+
You feel Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention release the thaumaturgical equivalent of a burp.
+
You sense you have more strength than before in defensive magic.
+
Your mind feels less crowded as Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention returns to its normal place.
+
You feel exhausted from your ordeal; you should probably wait a while before contemplating Kipperwald's Perlustration Prevention again.</pre>
