Glog-ish Spells

I'm working on a DIY D&D system right now. It's a mash up of every neat thing I've found on the internet while reading OSR blogs over the last few months. Honestly its a kludge and needs to be trimmed back, however, I think a few of the things I've come up with are worth keeping.

The system steals the GLOG magic system pretty much whole-sale, but gives you double the magic dice and has a different spell list (see below).

Some of these spells get a bit algebraic, sometimes using multiple variables to represent multiple costs for one spell. I also use a 'hold' mechanic in these spells that represents maintaining a magical effect by putting a number of dice aside, outside of your dice pool without spending them. When your concentration is broken or you end the effect of your own will, you roll the dice to see if you maintain the magic dice.
