The door of the shoddy, rundown tavern seemed to suddenly just fall apart, revealing an odd looking wizard then walked into the common.
“I knew this place was a bit out of shape, but I didn’t think that it was falling apart,” quipped Koram as he raised his ale mug for a drink.
“Some flashy wizard, no doubt,” Chalk whispered to the others.
“Who in here defies the power of Granthis the Mage?” the wizard demanded of the crowd. Several peasants quavered a bit and turned away. Chalk stood up.
“I do. We are just passing through, do yourself a favor and just relax and have an ale and leave these people alone,” he said to Granthis.
As Granthis began muttering a spell Chalk shouted a word and the rival sorcerer was thrown back against a wall, held fast by writhing shadowy tentacles.
“Perhaps you should pay for the door before you leave,” Chalk advised.
When Woodrot is cast upon anything made of wood (or a wood derivative, like paper) it will cause an arcane blight to weaken the wood into a soft dry pulp that easily crumbles. This can be used to break into buildings, weaken scaffolds, destroy libraries, etcetera. About two 4”x6”x10′ planks of wood are affected per level. Magical wooden objects receive a saving throw of 10 versus spells.
