[Swords & Wizardry] New Spell: The Stars Above Guide Me


The Stars Above Guide Me


                                                                               …the moonlight is free
                                A feeling inside me, and the whole world to see

                                                                                     —-Megadeth, “502”




The Stars Above Guide Me (Druidic)

Level 1

Range: Line of Sight of spellcaster

Duration: 5 minutes per level of magic user.

A very useful spell for lost or enterprising druids, The Stars Above Guide Me points out a path via the stars to a desired destination. This spell must be cast at night, and when this enchantment is lobbed skyward a fiery line of silvery light appears in the sky above the druid, connecting the stars and pointing towards the required objective. While The Stars Above Guide Me only lasts for five minutes per level, nothing stops the druid or a companion from making a star chart to map their way. Note that the information provided will be in a direct route, or “as the crow flies”. This spell makes druids very handy as nautical,overland and extra-planar navigators.

    Another fine spell bat, very cool and (just for once) I can’t see any need for clarification. I guess if anything I’d allow it for magic-users in my campaign, but that’s because my MU’s are less arcane scholars and more Istari-like. Excellent man, keep up the good ideas.

    Thank you, Lizardfolk, I appreciate all of the feedback I get.
    I can easily see this as a 1st level magic-user spell also, but it is another way to get the party to spend money on quality hirelings, too.

    I cannot explain how a line from a Megadeth song from an old album becomes a Swords & Wizardry spell, but sometimes it makes sense in my addled mind. Especially considering it is basically a song about driving recklessly.

    I agree, it is fine as-is. 🙂
