[New Spell] Unbalanced Act

Unbalanced Act

 

Navnen rolled up the sleeves of his tunic.

‘Watch this,’ he said.

‘Just remember how much gold it cost us to get that curse reversed,’ Valance said.

‘I can spring across there easily enough,’ the thief said.

‘Didn’t some odd fellow bump into you a few minutes ago?’ Chalk asked.

Navnen shrugged them off and made a running leap towards the open window of the wizard’s tower. Somehow he missed the somewhat easy jump and smashed into the bricks just to the side of the portal.

The thief groaned as he slid down towards the moat, Valance and Chalk fished him out with their staffs.

‘I think that was an apprentice of the mage who’s tower is yonder,’ Chalk said.

Navnen groaned more.

 

Unbalanced Act (Arcane)

Level 1

Range: Touch

Duration: Ten minutes/level of caster.

 

A simple yet annoying spell, Unbalanced Act causes the target to effectively have -2 to their Dexterity for simple actions and -3 to Dexterity for anything complicated, including combat. The target is -2 to Strike in combat due to their inability to control the balance of a weapon and activities like juggling, walking a tight-rope, etc are extremely difficult.

  1. Is the debuff for their next single action or for the duration? It’s pretty powerful if it’s for the duration.
    I can picture the thief getting up with a pressed in nose. 🙂

      Thank you for the comment! I could see the spell as debuffing for the duration as Sleep can be a fatal spell itself at first level. A reasonable amount of debuffs could be one action per level of caster. Sound fair?

  2. Ok, very true! My old GM conservatism at work.
