Phase Razor
Transmutation
Sorcerer/Wizard 7
Components: M, S
Casting Time: One standard action
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 minute
Spell Resistance: No

You enchant a simple razor with supernatural sharpness, granting it the ability to cut through any material, and even the fabric of space itself. The razor deals 1d4 points of slashing damage for a medium creature. Attacks with it ignore item hardness and damage reduction, they are resolved as touch attacks, and they ignore deflection bonuses to armor class as the razor is so sharp it simply cuts through the effect. The razor can deal damage to force effects, and any damage dealt this way immediately destroys the effect as though by a disintegrate spell. Furthermore, the razor interacts with ethereal and incorporeal creatures as though it were a force effect itself.

In addition to these effects, the razor is capable of cutting through the fabric of space, allowing the wielder and others to travel between planes. To use it in this way, the wielder must choose the destination plane and a location on that plane, and then take a standard action to cut a portal through the planar medium. Each portal lasts for 1 minute, and creatures can enter it at the rate of 1 creature per round. A creature can only make a portal that admits creatures and objects of the same size category or lower.

The same Phase Razor cannot open more than 3 portals at a time. A portal can be closed by the wielder by taking a standard action. Trying to open a 4th portal simply fails. Each portal leads to a specific location on the chosen plane. The effect is highly inaccurate however, and so each portal leads to a place 10 to 1000 miles from the intended location (roll 10d100). Different portals can lead to different locations.

The caster can give the razor to others, and it retains its special qualities in their hands as well.

Note: This spell is just a D&D version of The Subtle Knife from the His Dark Materials trilogy. It's not an original concept, though the mechanics are.
Material Component: A straight razor.

This simple but oft times very useful spell allows you to subtly tweak an existing disguise in ways difficult through mundane means. Casting it requires merely holding the material component for a few seconds, and so it's almost impossible for most people to tell you are casting a spell at all (though anyone interacting with you can see the effects).

You gain a +4 bonus to your existing Disguise check result, but this bonus doesn't stack with any bonus from a spell or supernatural effect that changes your appearance. This spell doesn't change your appearance, but merely tweaks your existing mundane disguise. It's not possible for anyone to detect a disguise has been modified by this spell.

Material Component: A straight razor.
