View Full Version : New Spell: Steamy Fog

2007-06-24, 07:15 PM
I sometimes create new spells that are similar to other spells, but more thematically appropriate to my character, and submit them to my DM for approval. I have a Sunite Heartwarder/Sorceress who's all about enchantments and love and sensuality. The following spell was balanced off of Freezing Fog and Acid Fog. What do you think?

Steamy Fog creates a billowing mass of hot, humid, vapors similar to that produced by a solid fog (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/solidFog.htm) spell. In addition to slowing creatures down and obscuring sight, this spell's vapors are very warm and filled with aphrodisiacs and pheromones. Each round on your turn, starting when you cast the spell, occupants of the cloud take 1d8 non-lethal. If they fall unconscious inside the cloud, they will have rather intense dreams until they regain consciousness. Furthermore, they must make a will save each round or be overpowered by debilitating sexual hunger, which leaves them dazed (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/conditionSummary.htm#dazed), incapable of taking action that round. For 2d6 minutes after leaving the cloud, they will have a strong (but controllable) urge to satisfy the desires the cloud stirred up.

Arcane Material Component
A pinch of rose petals combined with a sprinkle of wine.

Seems balanced and extremely thematically appropriate to me.

That's a nice spell you got there.

I'm sorry, I have to say it:
