Why would you make these available???

Hellfire is essentially a large fireball. It is just invisible until 
it hits something. THEN it turns into a large firball.

Charging?? It is supposed to be available in scrolls....

I would say that you just spoil the fun by making every spell 
available to the players.

When designing spells, be sure not to create them too powerfull. This would 
just ruin the balance (what balance?) of the game. Another point is that 
all of the playerclasses should be equally good. Great spells could result in 
everybody playing mages . :-(

Death-knell-- Looking for an easy way out? When tired, this spell kills every
