[New Spell] Letterscatter


Stork peered over at Vistus the Blue Mage. The latter nodded ominously, the thickly lacquered mask bobbing slowly twice. Stork sat back and relaxed, a smirk on his face.

‘Let us hear the list of wanted wizards in this dive!’ he sneered.

A quartet of heavily armed bailiffs appeared, making a lot of noise and huff. One of the bailiffs, obviously the leader of the four, unrolled a scroll and began to read.

‘Ansker! Korts! Vabstil!’

The reader shook his head, those were not names he had read a few minutes ago. But there they were, written in ink on parchment. The bailiff handed the parchment to the court wizard. It seemed to take the magic-user a few moments to focus.

‘Renask! Stork! Stivlab! And….Vistus!’

Stork and Vistus sat up quickly as the bailiffs shouted and pointed at the two spellcasters.



Letterscatter (Illusionist)

Level 2

Range: 5′ per level of caster.

Duration: One day per level of illusionist.

This sneaky illusionist spell alters any writing that is within range of the caster. The clever illusionist can make a distracting anagram with some letters while warping others into whole new words. This can be cast upon any writing and can confuse those trying to read a speech, garble spells being read from a parchment (causing the person reading the scroll to roll under their Wisdom attribute to regain control of the spell) or mix the words on signs and other directions. Those who see through this illusion will see a momentary signature in the air of wispy smoke, the signature of the caster of the spell.

    Awesome. A very cinematic sort of spell.

  2. I love the concept of trying to retain control of a spell scroll with a Wisdom check . . . and am dreaming up ways the scroll will go wrong when the check is failed!

    Thank you for the comments! I try to make things a little different and beyond the humdrum so that it gives a different angle without a lot of extra work.
