Design changes for Spells

Original Spell Lists: Sorcerer, Wizard

One thing to note, is that all spells that I am adding into this blog have the Spell list removed from them, besides anything I might be doing to tweak them for my home campaign. There is a source there if you want to look up the original version of the spell for your own campaigns, but mine does not need that information.

What has been added is the Secret Crafts, which replace the spell lists, as all spells not from the players handbook will only be available as part of the secret crafts of the world.

3rd Edition Version

  • Vacuum Slash
  • Necromancy [Air]
  • Level: Sor/Wiz 7
  • Components: V, S
  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: Medium (100 ft + 10 ft/level) or 50 ft + 5 ft/level
  • Area: 5 ft wide to medium range or 10 ft wide to half the distance.
  • Duration: Concentration (maximum 3 rounds) (D)
  • Saving Throw: Special
  • Spell Resistance: See text

You fan out your hands and create a line of hard vacuum extending away from you. All creatures inside the area suffer 10d6 points of damage, but they can halve this with a successful Fortitude save.

Creatures standing up to 10 ft away from the affected area must roll a Strength check (DC 17+ Int or Cha mod) or be sucked inside the vacuum. Any unattended object is sucked in automatically. Those inside the vacuum can try to escape with a Strength check (DC 20 + Int or Cha mod) and must also roll to escape the 10 ft area outside the vacuum. You can concentrate to maintain the vacuum up to 3 rounds, and those caught inside or sucked in must roll a Fortitude save every round to halve the subsequent 10d6 points of damage. Spell Resistance can negate the damage but does not protect against the sucking effect. Constructs are also unaffected by the vacuum damage, but undead suffer the effects normally.
