    Eldan's link goes to Dmverdandi's post. For some reason. This is the correct link.


    Mage's Miscast
    Evocation [Fire, Cursed]
    Level: Wiz/Sor 6
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Components: V, S
    Range: Touch
    Target: Creature touched
    Duration: 10 minutes/level or until expended.
    Saving throw: Will negates (Appears harmless)
    Spell resistance: Yes (Appears harmless)

    Mage's Miscast appears for all intents and purposes to be the spell Greater Heroism, and it actually has the same effect even though it's not an enchantment. However, the moment the subject wishes to cast a spell of any import, they instead botch the spell horribly - they spend the spell slot as normal and instead cast a fireball spell, centred on themselves. A psionic manifester or a user of spell-like or psi-like abilities is still subject to this effect in the same way. The spell's effect is then discharged, including the spell masking it.

    A creature who doesn't recognise the Mage's Miscast spell doesn't know why their spell fails, though they know they lost their heroism effect. Creatures who can't use any abilties what would trigger the effect can't be affected.

    Lightlawbliss' Rightwrongness
    Illusion [Figment, Cursed]
    Level: Clr 2
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Components: V, S, DF
    Range: Close (25 ft + 5 ft/2 levels)
    Area: 20 ft radius emanation
    Duration: 1 minute/level
    Saving throw: Will disbelief
    Spell resistance: No.

    This spell appears for all intents and purposes to be a Zone of Truth, but actually allows anyone within to speak freely.

    Sideswipe's Fineness
    Transmutation [Cursed]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 4
    Components: V, S, M
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Touch
    Target: Willing living creature touched
    Duration: 1 min./level (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    This spell appears to be the spell Polymorph, and actually works as such until triggered by the creature actually attempting fight in earnest using their new form. If the creature attacks or is attacked in a serious manner, they immediately transform into another form chosen by you upon casting the spell, this form being of fine size. They retain this new form until the spell is ended.

    Material component
    An empty cocoon.

    Keledrath's Mutation
    Transmutation [Cursed]
    Level: Sor/Wiz 8
    Components: V, S, M
    Casting Time: 1 standard action
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Target: One willing creature
    Duration: See text
    Saving Throw: No
    Spell Resistance: No

    This spell looks like Polymorph Any Object until the creature attempts to fight in combat, or use any of the new form's abilities. When they do, they are mutated into a horrible new form.

    They take 2d6 points of damage to each ability score, and take on a size one greater than their own. They move at half their normal speed, can't fly or burrow, and lose access to all of their equipment for the duration. While in this mutant form, they can't speak, severely hampering their ability to cast most spells (though many powers are unaffected). Because they aren't silenced and they literally can't speak at all, the Truenamer's The Universe Hears Just Fine ability doesn't take effect.

    I like cursed items so I made some cursed spells - enjoy!
