[New Spell] Deny Flight

Deny Flight


‘It pains me to do this, one werebat to another,’ the creature insisted before casting a spell.

The door to the top of the tower burst open. Both werebats, in their half bat-half human form, prepared to flee.

One was able to as the cast spell kept the other from flying.

With a hiss the creature turned on the monster hunters, preparing to fight.


Deny Flight (Arcane)

Level 2

Range: 40′ + 5’/level

Duration: One turn (ten minutes)/level.

When cast the magic-user can keep a creature from flying that normally can fly at will. If in flight the effected creature(s) will harmless flutter to the ground. Up to 2HD worth of creatures are affected by level.

Option: Roll 1d20, on a result of 19-20 those affected by the spell will be unable to fly until a Remove Curse, Limited Wish or Wish spell is cast to restore flight.

  1. I like this one very much. Especially as a 2nd. level spell. Honestly I’d use it as a counter to magically induced flight as well. (Dispel Magic obviously does this too, but since Flight and Dispel Magic are both 3rd level I like that you can negate a higher lvl spell with a lower powered but specific counterspell.)

    It’s always kinda stuck in my craw that once the characters reach 5th. lvl cliffs and pitfalls and precipices can suddenly lose their effectiveness as barriers. Working this spell into a trap would be pretty sweet.

      Thank you for the reply and great ideas. I enjoy people’s reactions to my posts because I often set out with something going in one direction (I saw this spell as a way to keep birds from flying away or to keep familiars from taking off) to seeing how others see it. Thanks again! 😀

      If they memorize fly that is a fireball they can’t cast. While Fly+ invisibility can be back breaking it only lasts a short time.
