[New Spell (Curse)] Personality Askew

Personality Askew

 

Navnen fumbled the keys and dropped them.

‘Now is not the time for hilarity,’ Valance said as he nervously looked over his shoulder for guards.

The thief grimaced, his fingers all twisted together.

‘I’m not trying to be funny. Ever since that wizard grabbed my arm in Vindula I have felt strange and been clumsy.’

The guards clanking armor could be heard nearby. Valance summoned a few largish spiders to terrify the men.

‘If we get out of here alive I’m hiring a way to drop this curse, it is awful,’ the priest of the Spider God said.

‘You are telling me,’ replied the thief, staring at his awkward hands.

Level 3

Range: Touch.

Duration: Until dispelled.

This horrific curse mixes the physical and mental attributes of a subject, leaving a brawny warrior physically weak or a wizard with below average intelligence. All bonuses are gone until the curse is reversed, which can make life difficult for the affected one (magic-users lose bonus spells, fighters lose damage bonus for Str, thieves lose Dex bonus, etc). Usually the opposite of what a particular class would want is the result of this challenging to overcome curse.

    Does it swap the ability scores? Like Str and Int get swapped? Or do you essentially just lose your bonuses from your primary ability scores?

      I would say that the GM/DM takes over and reassigns numbers which would change bonuses around. So the high Int magic-user becomes a high Chr (with bonuses) magic-user. But just losing bonuses works too.
