Introduction

Accio rem felicem is a Summoning spell which summons a random item that will be useful to the caster in the near future. It is a simple spell and suitable for beginners; however, the more advanced at Summoning the caster is, the more useful the item they will summon.

History

Etymology

The incantation Accio rem felicem literally translates from the Latin to 'I summon a lucky thing/item'.

Known Uses
