Three First Level Spells: Cloak of Silver, Winter Petal Wind, Flame's Bounty

[found on delicate sheets of vellum inked in veridian and azure, tucked within a scrollcase of jade]


Cloak of Silver

Range: 0
Duration: 1 hour
Effect: A bolstering of the caster's resistance to magic

Cloak of silver envelops the Magic-User in a faint sheath of silvery-white energy which protects against hostile magic. For the duration of the spell, the Magic-User gains a +3 bonus to saves vs. spells, wands and similar magic-based effects.


Winter Petal Wind
Range: 15'
Duration: 1 round
Effect: A 15' cone of icy "petals" that injure targets

Casting this spell produces a 15'x5' cone of razor-sharp "petals" or flakes of ice that freeze and slash all within its area, inflicting 1-4 hit points of damage. Winter petal wind counts as both cold and physical damage.


Flame's Bounty
Range: 0 / 5'
Duration: 1 hour / 2 rounds
Effect: Creates a sustaining -- and fiery -- fruit

Casting this spell creates a single orange-pink fruit resembling a peach the size of a grapefruit; its flesh is hot, sweet, almost syrupy and nutritious, enough for one meal for a humanoid. It is also a surprisingly effective weapon (for a fruit) -- if thrown at a target within 5', the fruit explodes in a shower of scalding jelly and syrup inflicting 1-4 hit points of damage the first round and 1-2 hit points of damage the second round.

Fruit not consumed within an hour dissolve into inedible slushy pulp.

Thank you. I just got inspired for a new type of treasure to add to my random charts - spells that I dig up from the Internet, but aren't in the books.

Wow. You never cease to amaze. Flame's Bounty is a crazy fun spell, though they are all pretty cool. They fit perfectly into my D&D world (where most mages have themes to their spell repetoire.

I actually have an original magic item in my campaign universe called the Cloak of Silver. The wearer can not be afflicted with Lycanthropy and any creature hurt by silver weapons takes 1d6 points of damage from touching the wearer.

Sweet. I like that very much, yes indeed; great idea!

Some great items there. You have an off-beat design approach that leads to some intriguing creative discoveries.

Thank ye very kindly! Though I have to say, I'm curious as to what you mean by "off-beat design approach" *grins*

Paul said...

Perhaps "whimsical" rather than "off-beat".

Fair enough ;3
