Phemes are the smallest element of magic and in itself useless. However a combination of phemes can be used to form a spell. If one doesn't know all the phemes that make up the spell one cannot cast the spell.
Phemes can also be added to certain spells to give additional and/or stronger effects. This makes it harder to succeed at casting that spell.
Phemes can neither be added to Spells requiring no Rolls nor to Spells requiring basically no Roll, but having additional effects on high Rolls. In the latter case the Phemes submenue pops up and you can add any number of them, but they have no effect.
