Skin of the Troll
‘That was close!’ exclaimed Koram. ‘So many bugbears. Luckily you had that spell handy.’
‘It was a great scroll to invest in,’ said Chalk in agreement.
‘Hey, why is my skin green and warty still? Combat is over,’ the fighter said as he regarded his arms.
‘Because the side effect of the spell is that you will be like that until sunset, with no added protection, of course,’ replied the wizard.
‘Where does it say that?’ asked a frustrated Koram.
‘The scroll is blank now because I used it, but it used to say this on it,’ answered Chalk.
‘I’m hideous!’ exclaimed the fighter.
‘Just for a few hours,’ Chalk said.
Koram grumbled and began looting the bugbears.
Skin of the Troll (Magic-user)
Range: Self or Touch.
Duration: Twenty rounds.
Other than damage caused by acid or fire, all other damage that the subject has received in combat will regenerate at the rate of one hit point per round (minute) for the spell’s duration. An unfortunate side effect of this spell is having greenish, warty skin like a troll for the rest of the the day (until next daybreak or sunset) which causes a -2 to the Charisma attribute of the one affected.
