[New Spell] The Devil That Knows You

The Devil That Knows You

Koram sat on the balcony of the room at the inn, staring up into the night sky. The fighter was startled at the appearance of Knat the druidess.

Can’t sleep either?” Knat asked.

No. I keep having visions of a creature that is part man, part ape and part snake, with great bat-like wings and bearing a horn. I feel as if he is somehow staring at me from another, darker plane,” Koram replied.

Knat seemed taken aback.

I just can’t sleep because I thought the cheese we had at dinner was bad,” she admitted.

The Devil That Knows You (Arcane)

Level 4

Range: 20′ + 5′ per level of caster

Duration: Until dispelled or the infernal entity gives up or destroys the victim.

When this curse is cast upon an individual that person receives a saving throw versus magic at -1, failure to make that save turns the attention of a powerful (usually unique) infernal creature upon the victim. Despite the name of the spell, this can be a devil, demon, daemon or other supernatural entity of evil (option: or good in the case of Chaotic targets of this curse). The infernal being will at first throw only minor obstacles before this victim, often with signature qualities associated with that particular entity (Baalzebul may send giant flies to torment the individual, or Orcus will use the undead, for example). These may seem like annoyances at first, often considered coincidences in some cases, building up little by little. The longer the victim lives the more annoyed the infernal entity becomes, the more focused upon their destruction. If this curse is dispelled before the victim dies the vile being utterly loses all knowledge of the target, as if they had never heard of that person before.

    It would be interesting to know what the infernal entity feels about the victim. Are they like “well, the spell says I gotta torment you, so…” or does it convince them the victim has actually offended them in some way?

  2. bat says:

    I would go with the latter myself, the entity somehow thinking that the victim of the spell is in some way defiant against them. The thought of the spell really kind of creeped me out and then, and I kid you not, I received exactly, no more, no less, than 666 views for the day that I posted this spell. :0

    Some days you want to believe in coincidence.
