Light as a Feather
“He had to come this way!” Koram insisted.
“But the trap would have been sprung. Any weight would have triggered it,” Chalk said, bewildered.
They both looked at Gnybaro.
“Hey, I know how to make traps, don’t you two give me that look,” the thief said.
“And you made several random areas?” Chalk asked.
“It would have been impossible for Stork to slip in and out without springing one of those pressure plates. Impossible,” Gnybaro replied.
“He must have flown,” Chalk said.
“Storks do fly,” Valance chimed in.
Koram knelt down for a better look.
“I see scuff marks, like the lightest of footprints, just enough to disturb the dust and ash that was spread over the floor,” Koram said, pointing at the almost imperceptible tracks.
“He must have some obscure spell. Sorcery was involved. Gnyb, we will need more elaborate traps,” Chalk said.
“Consider it done,” the thief replied, his pride a little bruised at his trap being so easily overcome.
Light as a Feather (Arcane)
Range: Self or touch
Duration: Ten minutes per level of the spellcaster
Light as a Feather is a variant spell that is based on Featherfall and Levitation. The wizard can make themselves or a person (or up to 200 lbs of material) via touch become weightless (for all intents and purposes) for the duration of the spell. This can be used like the Featherfall spell in slowing a plummeting person, to skim over the surface of liquids or other hazards, to be easily thrown by a colleague, to make climbing easy and basically hazard free, to pass over brittle or noisy terrain soundlessly or for a variety of other reasons.
Optional: If using either Featherfall or Levitation, this spell’s qualities can be easily used instead of those in either spell as a variant taught to the casting sorcerer.
[Featherfall is not a spell in Labyrinth Lord, however, I feel that it will be in the Advanced Edition Companion book, due out soon.)
