Limited wish is a universal spell that alters reality, within limits.[1]


With the restriction that the effects listed must be of decreasing power than the one listed before it, the possible effects the caster can create with a limited wish spell are to: duplicate a moderately-powerful sorcerer or wizard spell, provided they have experience casting spells from that school of magic; duplicate any non-sorcerer or -wizard spell, with the same restriction; duplicate any sorcerer or wizard spell from any school of magic; or duplicate the effects of any type of spell. If the spell duplicated requires a material component, the caster must provide that component.[1]

Limited wish can also be used to undo the harmful effects of many other spells, such as geas/quest or insanity.[1]
