View Full Version : No speaking

Well I came up with a trait and a flaw based on a character I am hopefully going to be playing in a campaign (probably without these but I thought I might as well see if other people would be interested in them)

You can not speak in any manner
You can not cast spells with Verbal component. You can not interact with other characters or NPCs verbally.

Signs over words
You can cast spells without their normal Verbal component.
A spell cast with this ability takes one step longer to cast and you can not conceal your casting.

How would you sign and make arcane gestures (Somatic component)?

Think of it as more dramtic and longer gestures with more movement. This is the reason it takes longer and you can't hide it.

I wouldn't make spells take longer to cast. I would just make it so you can never take the Still Spell feat or apply it to your spells.

you know there is a feat in manual of the planes that makes words unneeded for spellcasting, just sounds, perhaps weezing and passing air through your lungs can count

Anyone remember Vocalize? It got around silence, by temporarily eliminating the verbal component. Sort of like a temporary Silent Spell.
