Noted. I especially like the idea for the Abundance spell because I think game mechanics that modify the map are very underexplored.

Today, two new Adventure spells. ;-)

Invisibility
Level: 3
Cost: 15
Type: Adventure
Target: na
Duration: current turn (all day long)
Rarity: 6%

Effect: allows the hero to enter in all locations on the adventure map without the need to fight the guardian creatures (City of the Dead, Troll Bridge, Dragon City and Derelict Ship, Graveyard, Shipwreck, Daemon Cave, Pyramid, Abandoned Mine).

For the locations City of the Dead, Troll Bridge and Dragon City, once entered all the others heroes (only for same player) can enter the creature generator without fighting.
For the locations Derelict Ship, Graveyard, Shipwreck, Daemon Cave, Pyramid, once entered they act as if they have already been visited (Morale malus, etc.).
For the Abandoned Mine, it's now a Gold mine possessed by the player.

*****

View Inside Town
Level: 2
Cost: 7
Type: Adventure
Target: na
Duration: current turn (all day long)
Rarity: 10%

Effect: allows to access the town of a neutral/enemy town/castle to check what is already build (Castle screen), the defending creatures (Town screen), the recruitable creatures (Well, Creature Dwellings) and the spells in the Mage Guild (Mage Guild).

The town(s)/castle(s) should be located in the hero's viewing range for the hero to be able to access it/them.

First Strike is already on the roadmap -- not as a spell, but as a creature ability.

I feel like I should be able to implement a lot of these in 10 minutes each (minus graphics). I now feel extra-motivated to make it so. There's still a lot of work to get there; tweaking a part of the codebase for the first time is always a project, even if the change to make is small.

I don't feel it a good idea. It'd be better to improve the existing 3rd level spells. Especially the Abandoned mine which is anyway guarded well enough. Usually when people get lvl 3 Mage Guild, they are capable of taking any Abandoned Mine.

If the hero has a powerful army and can easily beat the guardians, it's better to fight (more experience points, more Skeletons for Necromancer).
But if it's a weak hero, with the task to recruit troops where they are available (per example, in order to recruit a small army of defense to fight against weak opponents heroes), then the spell is really useful. It's all about strategy and how the player manages his heroes.

Basically, it would be nice to be able to use fonctionnalities in different ways, creature ability, spell, secondary skill, artifact.

Example with the Regeneration Troll ability.

First it's a creature ability.

**

Some modders would like to make a spell of it.

Regeneration
Level: 3
Cost: 10
Type: Combat
Target: 1 ally
Duration: 1 turn/Power
Rarity: 8%

Effect: Regenerates creature hit points to full at beginning of every turn.

**

Some modders would like to make a Secondary Skill of it.

Regeneration:

Regenerates creature hit points to full at beginning of every turn.

Basic: Your troops level 2 and below regenerates their hit points to full at beginning of every turn.
Advanced: Your troops level 4 and below regenerates their hit points to full at beginning of every turn.
Expert: Your troops level 6 and below regenerates their hit points to full at beginning of every turn.

**

Some modders would like to add it to an artifact.

Troll's Tunic: all your troops regenerates their hit points to full at beginning of every turn during combat.

**

Some modders would like to make a different creature ability of it.

Regeneration Troll ability:

The Troll regenerates hit points to full every turn, and all allied creatures located in an adjacent hexagon near the Troll troop regenerates hit points to full every turn.

**

I don't know if it can be done easily, but this is something to think about.

*****

Precisions for Spell.

The Invisibility spell don't allow to enter the locations protected by guardians generated by the players (Ghosts generated with "Haunt" spell, and Elementals generated with "Set Guardian" spells), only the locations already protected at the scenario start (by design).

*****

Cursed Artifacts.

Cursed Gloves: disables all bonuses for all future captured artifacts, the newly captured artifacts only occupies a slot without bonuses (once the Cursed Gloves are removed at the Alchemist's Tower, all the Artifacts become active again).

Yeah, I'm starting to think more seriously about how to do that.

I'm currently doing some work with the map editor, making it easier to add new objects, and in particular new kinds of heroes and castles (as part of adding a new faction). I may squeeze some time out of Cyborg stuff to try to allow new spells and artifacts via scripting.

Yes, more possibilities and greater accessibility means more users. ;-)
