    cool (3.5) (Spell) Based on a Demotivator (P.E.A.C.H.)

    Created this long ago, finally got around to splitting it into three different spells like I said I would... considered making a "Crush Chaos" version that makes rocks fall (touch attack rather than reflex save), but I decided to go with Cold. Not sure my editing is very good for the non-Good-caster versions.

    Found the following in a Demotivator thread. Specifically in THIS post.

    Going to write a brief description of the photo and copy down the caption here in case the image suddenly stops getting hosted:
    The image shows a lightning bolt striking a tree near a house (unfortunately in a modern suburban-looking setting). The lightning bolt is purple-ish where it runs along the tree.
    New Spell Research
    Little did the assassin hiding in the tree know that the wizard he had to kill had recently blended Evocation with Divination, creating the spell "Detect Evil And Turn It To Sizzling Bacon"

    Decided it needed an actual write-up. Decided that Flamestrike was a good thing to base it on although I have varied the element type of the damage with the alignment factor.

    Detect Chaos and Turn it to Ice Sculpture, Lesser
    Divination/Evocation [Cold, Law]
    Level: Clr 4
    Components: V, S, F, DF
    Casting Time: 1 Full Round
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex Half
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    While the damage from this spell is relatively minimal for the amount of skill at channeling divine power that it requires, it is useful for locating targets for more serious efforts at eradication.
    When cast each creature that would register under Detect Chaos (ignoring the rounds of concentration required) that is within range is targeted by a cube of divine freezing 5 feet on a side. The spell deals 4d6 damage to each target. Half the damage is cold damage, but the other half results directly from divine power and is therefore not subject to being reduced by resistance to cold-based attacks.
    Focus: A solid gold crest representing an highly bureaucratic (but efficient) organization that promotes Order and is not opposed to violence worth at least 100 gp.

The spell deals 5d6 damage to each target. Half the damage is cold damage, but the other half results directly from divine power and is therefore not subject to being reduced by resistance to cold-based attacks.

    ((Pay attention to the focii for the Lesser and Greater versions, I did something a bit different here.))
    Detect Law and Turn it to Goo, Lesser
    Divination/Evocation [Sonic, Chaos]
    Level: Clr 4
    Components: V, S, F, DF
    Casting Time: 1 Full Round
    Range: 60 feet
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: Reflex Half
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    When cast each creature that would register under Detect Law (ignoring the rounds of concentration required) that is within range is targeted by a 5 foot diameter vertical column of divine cacophony. The spell deals 4d4 damage to each target. Half the damage is sonic damage, but the other half results directly from divine power and is therefore not subject to being reduced by resistance to sonic-based attacks. The timing between the columns is random but always at least asynchronous enough that the number of them does not effect the DCs of listen checks to pin-point exactly where they (and thus the targets in the horizontal axis) are located.
    Focus: The remains of any object worth at least 200 gp that the caster personally destroyed for no other purpose than to have a focus for this spell, or maybe no purpose at all.

    Focus: At least 2,000 gp worth of materials assembled in a haphazard manner. The caster must have assembled the materials himself and the method of assembly must render the components useless for their original functions (if any).

    That said I don't think I've seen an auto targeted aoe dot in D&D before and that is something that interests me.

    Yeah, I mentioned that... and my reasons for changing it. I could make it half-lighting and half-divine instead of half-fire and half-divine if people prefer... or maybe have it vary by alignment among the 4 spells this will eventually turn into.

    1.) What do you mean by "dot" do you mean it hits only the appropriate squares, rather than filling the whole area?
    2.) You forgot an "/". I put it in for you in the quote above.

    This spell is awesome! Actually I was wondering if it would be fine if I created a modified version of it, for my Lunar Scythe class.

    Always glad to inspire others.
    Give me a parenthetical "This ability inspired by Draco Dei's Detect Evil and Turn it to Sizzling Bacon spell" at the end of the ability, or something like that, and that would be excellent.

    Right, in order:
    Hm, running through the four traditional elements (fire, air[lightning {or skip it and go for a localized tornado}], earth and water) across the four alignment corners could be interesting.

    A dot stands for Damage Over Time, that is it keeps going off. It's a slang from some mmos.

    Ah, whoops, one of the pitfalls of trying to type code on an android. I'll just fix that now.

    They don't necessarily have to be falling... I imagine the reverse could be quite painful on some species.
    Though rocks fall does have a certain poetry to it...

    I thought of that, especially since that is how the Demotivator is written. Unfortunately, while they certainly get enough Evocation to qualify, Detect Chaos/Evil/Good/Law is very much absent from their spell lists, as are most/all offensive spells that function based on alignment.

    Do people think I got the damage and spell level about right? It is actually a very useful spell for pointing out ambushes/invisible opponents and "crowd control" especially if you ignore the peons and go after the big opponents. After the big guys drop the peons should:
    1. Be dead.
    2. Rout.
    3. Or be great-cleave bait for the party melee-ist(s).

    Why not base it off something else (and possibly use a different application/set of elements)? I'm not sure what you'd base it off of (or what set/application) to use but it might be nice to make it different from the divine version... or you could help wear down the difference between the two... both work.

    I was going to ask if you'd consider doing a pan-elemental souped-up version of this, but if it's an 8th level spell that might not be feasible.

    I am saying that arcane magic really isn't supposed to be able to DO that sort of thing... it would be like giving them the Cure X Wounds line. Even if you delay each spell a level or something it dilutes the flavor of the classes.

    Well, I am still not 100% sure it IS an 8th level spell. I originally had it as 7th level and 4d6 damage, but decided to change both of those. Really not sure what it should be.

    That and an anti-mage version would be great for a pan-elemental and x (possibly far realms) variant, though they'd probably need some friend or foe detection.

    Personally I'd have the Arcanists blasting mundanes with the pan-elemental one and other mages with the far-realms one (because you really want to make sure an enemy mage is dead).

    Personally I'd have the Arcanists blasting mundanes with the pan-elemental one and other mages with the far-realms one (because you really want to make sure an enemy mage is dead).
    That... could be interesting... yes.

    EDIT: Made the current spell dismissible. Among other things, this lets you parlay if the enemy is trying to surrender.

    I just realized this may be a "Greater" version. Normal version would then have Concentration duration, and "Lesser" version would be instantaneous.

    What say ye Playgrounders?

    You'll have to soften the damage and range as well, but that's just me.

    I'm all for a lesser version. But instant does,t seem in keeping with the rest of the spell. Maybe leave it at 2 stages and let sneaks have some breathing room.

    Instant just means it only goes off once.
    As for sneaks, there are many spells and effects for concealing one's alignment, and many sneaky types have access to them. Note that it says they have to register on a hypothetical Detect Evil.
    Still, I will keep the level up a bit to account for sneaky types.

    That's actually exactly what I meant about instant, though I may be overvaluing how integral the repeating part is and there's something to be said about the lesser version lacking a key cool feature.

    Lesser: Instantaneous.
    (Normal): Concentration (Perhaps a cone)
    Greater: 1 minute per caster level (D)

    This is now 12 spells, so I thought I would bump it before I left for a Con (lest I forget to do it after I come back).

    P.E.A.C.H. still desired especially on the Anti-Law version which has reduced damage dice to balance the rare energy type, twice as expensive foci (but MUCH more easy to obtain quickly... literally anything that comes to the right GP total can do), and a name I am not certain about.

    I have one major criticism of these spells.

    Good should be turned into roast chicken, not sizzling bacon.

    Girlfriend's Angry Call
    Divination/Evocation [Fire or Lightning]
    Level: Sor 8
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 Full Round
    Range: Unlimited
    Duration: Instantaneous
    Saving Throw: None and Reflex Half
    Spell Resistance: No and Yes
    This spell functions like Demand, allowing the caster to contact another being via a Sending. Unlike Demand, which links a Suggestion spell to convince the being to do as it is told, this spell links either a fireball or a scinctillating sphere centered on the target. Created by the Simbul to contact Elminster when he could not be found, it has proven to be significantly more persuasive. Reflex saves and spell resistance apply to the fireball or scinctillating spherebut not the sending.


    If all you have is a hammer, don't be lazy; be a blacksmith and start making more stuff.

    Eh... Rare damage type and high focus availability doesn't really balance reduced damage in most campaigns.
    Though since it's cleric, not wizard, it can be more situational and still see play.
    Side note: You may want to specify that magic rods, iounn stones, etc. included in the "haphazard assembly" no longer function.

    I don't get the specific joke, but I have made the change.
