Unseen aid is a spell used by many sorcerers early in their training. Using unseen aid grants arcane assistance to the caster, allowing them to perform a number of tasks with greater proficiency than they would otherwise be able to. Unseen aid is not particularly difficult to cast, taking only an instant to use and a rest of a few minutes or more to recharge.
