Mother Brynda's Call of Gravity is an offensive witch spell which causes all items floating in orbit around the target (floaters) as a result of Grammer Scorbic's Household Guard or Endorphin's Floating Friend to fall to the ground. If the target is floating it will also fall to the ground.

## Acquisition

This spell can be learned at 20 levels of magic.spells.offensive. It is taught by Granny Weatherwax and Aunty Ogg-San.

## Effects

This spell has two effects:

• It brings down any items floating around the target.
• If the target themself is floating (as per Finneblaugh's Thaumic Float), it will bring them down too, regardless of the duration of floating they may have built up.
• If the target has a floating shield (for example from Endorphin's Floating Friend), and is also themselves floating (see FTF), the spell can remove both effects simultaneously (ending any duration of FTF, and knocking a shield to the ground, in one).

## Casting

This spell requires 50 GP to cast, and takes up 20 units of mind space. It may be cast on any living target, including the caster herself; this spell is most commonly used in this fashion to bring one's own shields down for fixing.

The spell is PK-checked for casting at other players.
