Final Fantasy Tactics

Type: Arithmeticks, Element: Magical / (Varies), MP: -
Target: any, Range: -, Radius: -, Power: (varies)
Speed: instant, Duration: (varies), Line of Fire: No
Learn: Arithmetician (2,550 JP total)
Effect: Casts an Arithmeticks-compatible spell from among those you've learnt on a target or targets determined by Arithmeticks
Other: power, element and duration is determined by the spell you choose to cast, target(s) hit with it are determined by the Arithmeticks base equation and selection criteria chosen (for example, CT + Multiple of 4, or Height + Multiple of 3. In the first case, the spell would hit all characters whose CT is currently a multiple of 4, in the second case it would hit all those whose height is a multiple of 3)
Other: the character using Arithmeticks must have learned the spell to be used, otherwise it won't show up to select from
Other: while Arithmeticks casts spells, Arithmeticks by itself is an ability and therefore no spell cast with it can be Reflected
Other: Damage/Healing = Mag Atk x Power x (Faith / 100) x (Target's Faith / 100), Status change rate = (Mag Atk + Power) x (Faith / 100) x (Target's Faith / 100)
