Bonus to spells?

Recommended Posts

Can somebody explain how exactly the property 'bonus to spells' works? I thought it added to the roll needed to succeed at casting a spell, but unless I'm missing something, it's not working that way.

 

I'm trying to cast the Revision of Skills spell (Intelligence/Revision v. 12). I have a Revision skill of 8 and an Intelligence of 3. Before I cast the spell, I cast Wand Amplification (+4 bonus to spells). This means I should get a roll of at least 1+8+4=13>12 and so a guaranteed pass. Yet I still occasionally fail to cast the spell.

Fair enough, although if that's the case, it's a pretty big penalty. After I cast Wand Amplification, I cast Wizard's Aid, and then Revision of Spells, which should give me an unadjusted minimum of 15. Yet I still failed. So the penalty is at least -4.
