The mage can unravel an existing spell against only those targets he chooses, letting the spell continue to affect others.

Mechanics: Successes are compared to the target spell’s Potency. This spell is like “Dispel Magic” in all its Arcana requirements (unless the caster has Prime 4, in which case he can perform it with “Supernal Dispellation”). It allows a mage to protect himself or other select individuals from spells while still allowing those spells to take effect. He effectively makes his Pattern (and other targets of his choice) invisible to the spell.

Example: Arctos is thrown into a dungeon that’s protected by an area-affecting spell designed to befuddle anyone within its confines. He casts Controlled Dispellation to prevent the spell from affecting his own Pattern. Since he has not dispelled the magic – only its effect upon himself – his captor does not necessarily know that he is not affected. Arctos can pretend to be befuddled if it suits his escape plan.
