Teleportation is a special spell that does not fit in any of the four categorizes of Magic. It is learned after defeating Lich in the Undercity. Teleportation is a self-descriptive spell, it will teleport Ashley to a Magic Circle. It can only be used when Ashley is standing on a Magic Circle. For every Magic Circle between Ashley and the location he wants to go, the MP cost will rise 4 points from the starting cost of 15.
