[New Spell] Light as a Feather, Heavy as Stone

Light as a Feather, Heavy as Stone

Knat the druidess ran as fast as she could through the dilapidated town, a hobgoblin mercenary at her heels. A strong wind at her back, Knat ran towards a crumbling dead end alley and began murmuring a spell, the hideous creature cackled with glee as he closed in on the human female.

Suddenly Knat was picked up in an updraft, blown high into the air. Laughing she turned to face the hobgoblin from high up and began to plummet as if suddenly made of rock and crashed down upon the murderous humanoid like a ton of bricks.

Light as a Feather, Heavy as Stone (Druid)

Level 2

Range: Self

Duration: Three rounds per level of druid

This simple druid spell allows the caster to either weigh as little as a feather (including all gear carried) or be as heavy as if he or she were made of rock (roughly 400-500 lbs for game purposes). After the decision has been made to shift to either weight category (light or heavy) the spell requires one round consumed to willingly change to the opposite weight category. Characters in “light mode” can be blown with a breeze (moving faster than they could walk or run in a strong wind), float on water and fall gently (as the Featherfall spell) while characters in “heavy mode” can root themselves to the ground (requiring a 17+ Strength to move) or drop onto targets (for 1d10 points of damage).

    Nice spell. I like the spells rich in flavor like these, which fill a niche, rather than being overly broad in their application.

    “After the decision has been made to shift to either weight category (light or heavy) the spell requires one turn consumed to willingly change to the opposite weight category.”

    I think you mean 1 round (not turn). Perhaps; the caster may change weight category each round, with the decision taking effect in the following round. (if that is what you meant).

      Thank you for the comment and the correction, I did mean one round. Please bear with me sometimes; I write these when I get up usually, with a cup of coffee and a 20 minute time frame.
