Chalk threw a dagger into the air as the small reptilian creatures attacked, yipping and barking as they ran with rusty halberds and notched scimitars. The dagger hung suspended before the wizard and then began a slow orbit around him.
One of the kobolds lead a charge, running and barking in rage (and a little bit of nervous fear), darting passed Koram and rushing the wizard. Suddenly the dagger revolving around Chalk sunk itself deep into the lead kobold’s chest as the wizard lobbed a couple of spheres at the remaining attackers. These magic globes exploded into twin showers of biting spiders, which caused panic and terror among the tiny humanoids as their leader sunk to the ground like a sack of potatoes.
As the kobolds routed Koram and Valance looked over at the wizard, who shrugged and grinned.
“That spell was worth learning,” the wizard said.
Duration: Five minutes per level of caster
When cast Mageblade causes a dagger owned by a wizard to slowly whirl around the caster, protecting them by deflecting arrows and small thrown objects or by attacking enemies who come within three feet of the wizard. This spell is meant to protect a wizard while he or she is concentrating on or casting another, more complicated spell.
Every three levels a magic-user may add another dagger, so at 3rd level the wizard may utilize two whirling daggers and can have 3 of these at 6th level.
