[New Spell] Name Your Enemy

Name Your Enemy

With a howl of rage Brozi the Wily, notorious orc bandit and raider lead the charge of his ragtag gang of ruffians. Koram leaped forward, swinging his Crystal Sword while Nysser stepped up beside him and drew the short sword that he’d had enchanted earlier that day in a nearby village. The elf’s weapon had taken on a strange glow now and the orcs seemed about as concerned as orcs get. Chalk lobbed green splash of strange arcane fluid over the heads of his companions and into the collection of brutes. Without hesitation Nysser ran forward, chopping into the orcs almost haphazardly, much to the surprise of everyone.

Then the troll lurched into sight and the thief stopped dead in his tracks, mouth agape.

Name Your Enemy (Arcane)

Level 2

Range: Touch

Duration: One day per level of wizard.

This simple and rather common spell is often used by wizards to give a weapon a minor enchantment previous to a battle, raid or adventure into an area where one is likely to encounter a particular foe. When cast upon a weapon the magic-user must name a particular type of creature (“orc”, “kobold”, “dragon”, etc) and the enchanted weapon will glow softly whenever within 60′ of the named foe. In combat this weapon will do an additional 1 hit point of damage per HD of the enemy of choice. These wounds are ghastly, painful and slow to heal, resisting healing spells (which only heal half of what they should) and/or taking twice as long to naturally heal.

    This is a really neat boost and I think the ability to level is well balanced.

    bat, I’m curious about the fiction being in a sliding inset field.
    –It has been difficult to read a few of the long sentences that run far into the slider-side of the field.

    I agree with Timeshadow. But, what I do is I just copy and paste it into a word document, then delete the doc once I’m done. At the same time, this is free content…so who are we to complain how it is put up here.

    Thank you for the comments. For some reason WordPress is a little wonky. I can see everything fine, but it sometimes mixes things up for no good reason. Sometimes the last paragraph is bold and sometimes not, but the fiction is sometimes performatted and sometimes a paragraph. I will try to keep an eye on it. :/

    I’ll add my approval here! I’m ganking it for my campaign right now! It’s just the sort of spell that I used to create for my elves to boost thier power-level.
