Mental strength was a common spell used by sohei and shugenja in Kara-Tur.[3] The spell was very rare outside Kara-Tur.[2]


A shugenja used this spell to protect themselves or others from charms, enchantments, illusions, possession, and telepathic attacks. It provided protection against various spells such as fear, hypnosis, and suggestion. The reverse of the spell was mental weakness. It had the opposite affect, lowering a creature's mental fortitude against mental attacks.[2][3]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required a material component: the tail from a fox.[2][3]
