    Default Complete Arcane Spell Converstion

    This page on the homebrewery

    Spells converted from complete arcane.

    Spoiler: Apparition
    Show
    4th-level illusion

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: touch
    Components: S
    Duration: 10 minutes
    You touch a creature, the face of which takes on a horrible and terrifying appearance. You can create nearly any combination of hideous features--Blue skin, parrot face, elephantine nose, rotting tusks, or worse--although you cannot duplicate the appearance of any specific creature.

    When a creature enters or starts its turn within 10 feet of the face you have created, the creature affected can force it to make a Wisdom saving throw using your spell save DC if it isn't incapacitated and can see the creature. If the saving throw fails the creature is frightened of the bearer of the face until the start of its next turn.

    Unless surprised, a creature can avert its eyes to avoid the saving throw at the start of its turn. If the creature does so, it can't see the face until the start of its next turn, when it can avert its eyes again. If the creature looks at the face in the meantime, it must immediately make the save.

    The changes wrought by this spell fail to hold up to physical inspection. For example, if you use this spell to create a face with a beak, objects pass through the beak, and anyone who touches it would feel nothing or would feel the creature's real face.

    To discern the face is a disguise, a creature can use its action to inspect the face and must succeed on an Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the creature can see through the image and does not need to make any saving throws from seeing it.

    Spoiler: Arc of Lightning
    Show
    5th-level conjuration

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 60 ft
    Components: V, S
    Duration: Instantaneous
    A stroke of lightning leaps in a 5 foot wide line between two creatures of your choice within range. Each creature in the line, including the two at the start and end of the line, must make a Dexterity saving throw. A creature takes 10d6 lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

    The lightning ignites flammable objects in the area that aren't being worn or carried.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.

    (Wizard, Sorcerer, Warlock)


    Spoiler: Backbiter
    Show
    1st-level necromancy

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 30 ft
    Components: V, S
    Duration: Instantaneous
    You enchant a weapon or held item within range to harm the user. The next time a creature uses the item to make an attack, it must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or be damaged by the attack instead of the intended target.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.

    (Artificer, Cleric, Warlock, Wizard)


    Spoiler: Blackfire
    Show
    8th-level necromancy

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 90 ft
    Components: V, S, M (a pinch of vampire dust)
    Duration: Concentration, up to 8 hours.
    You unleash a wave of communicable necrotic flame on a creature within range. The creature must make a Constitution saving throw or be poisoned for the duration of the spell, and has disadvantage on Constitution and Strength saving throws while poisoned in this manner. A creature that starts its turn within 5 feet of a creature affected by blackfire must also make a saving throw or be poisoned by the spell.

    (Cleric, Warlock, Wizard)


    Spoiler: Burning Blood
    Show
    4th-level necromancy

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 60 ft
    Components: V, S, M (a lizard's skin)
    Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute.
    You reach out and unleash a force of corrosive taint inside a creature within range. Make a ranged spell attack against the creature. On a hit, the creature's body is assaulted by a hot, burning infusion. The creature must make a Constitution saving throw at the start of each of its turns or take 1d8 acid damage and 1d8 fire damage.

    (Artificer, Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard)


    Spoiler: Defenestration
    Show
    3rd-level transmutation

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 30 ft.
    Components: S
    Duration: Instantaneous
    One creature or loose object of your choice that you can see within range flies in an arc up to 60 feet in a direction you choose before falling to the ground, stopping early if it impacts against a solid surface or another creature. The spell can fling a target that weighs up to 500 pounds. An unwilling creature that succeeds on a Constitution saving throw is unaffected.

    If the creature would impact against another creature, that creature must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, the creature strikes the target and stops moving. When the creature strikes something, the creature and what it strikes each take 4d8 bludgeoning damage.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher the damage to each creature increases by 1d8, for each slot level above 3rd.

    (Artificer, Cleric, Sorcerer, Wizard)
    I make no claims whether a survivor of this spell was saved by angels or landed in a pile of manure. It is, though, a hybrid of Levitate and Catapult.

    Spoiler: Force Whip
    Show
    3rd-level evocation

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: self
    Components: V, S, M (a strand of silk)
    Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes.
    You form a thunderous whip in your free hand, which lasts for the duration. If you let go of the whip, it disappears, but you can reform the weapon again as a bonus action.

    You can use your action to make a melee spell attack with the condensed thunder. On a hit, the target takes 3d6 thunder damage. If you hit a beast with the whip it must make a Wisdom saving throw or be frightened of you until the end of its next turn. Once the beast has made its saving throw, it must make an additional wisdom saving throw to enter within 10 feet of you. On a failed save the creature cannot enter within this range. On a success, the spell ends for that creature. If the creature starts its turn within 10 feet of you the spell, it automatically succeeds on this saving throw.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for every two slot levels above 3rd.

    (Artificer, Bard)


    Spoiler: Freezing Fog
    Show
    3rd-level conjuration

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 120 ft
    Components: V, S
    Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour.
    You create a 20-foot-radius sphere of icy fog centered on a point within range and turns it into difficult terrain for the duration. The sphere spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. It lasts for the duration or until a wind of moderate or greater speed (at least 10 miles per hour) disperses it.

    When the cloud appears, each creature standing in its area must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or fall prone. A creature that enters the area or ends its turn there must also succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or fall prone and a Constitution saving throw or take 1d6 cold damage.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the radius of the fog increases by 20 feet for each slot level above 3rd.

    (Druid, Sorcerer)
    Not entirely sure about the two saving throws. Perhaps I should also switch them, as it would take a moment after the cold sets in to turn slippery?

    Spoiler: Illusory Pit
    Show
    7th-level illusion

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 120 ft
    Components: V, S
    Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes.
    You create the image of a bottomless pit that is no larger than a 30-foot square centered on a point within range.

    A creature that starts its turn or enters within 5 feet of the pit must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failed save the creature is stunned until the end of its next turn. On a successful save the creature isn't stunned, but a creature directly over the pit still falls prone and attempts to save itself from falling.

    Physical interaction with the pit reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it, although a creature must succeed the saving throw before it realizes this. A creature that uses its action to examine the image can determine that it is an illusion with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the creature can see through the image, and no longer needs to make a saving throw to pass by it.

    (Warlock, Wizard)


    Spoiler: Reciprocal Gyre
    Show
    5th-level abjuration

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 120 ft
    Components: V, S
    Duration: 1 minute.
    You manipulate the weave, forming a damaging feedback of damage on a creature. Make a ranged spell attack against one creature within range. On the end of its turns, the creature must make a Constitution saving throw or take 1d6 force damage for each spell effecting it. The creature also takes 1d6 force damage each time it is the target of a spell.

    (Artificer, Bard, Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard)


    Spoiler: Spiritwall
    Show
    4th-level necromancy

    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: 120 ft
    Components: V, S, M (a clear cut gemstone)
    Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute.
    You create a barrier made of moaning spirits on a solid surface within range. You can make the wall up to 60 feet long, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick, or a ringed wall up to 20 feet in diameter, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick. The wall is opaque and lasts for the duration.

    When the wall appears, each creature within its area must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 5d6 necrotic damage, or half as much damage on a successful save.

    One side of the wall, selected by you when you cast this spell, gives of inhuman and otherworldly moans. A creature that enters within 10 feet of the wall on this side must make a Wisdom saving throw or be frightened of the spirits making up the wall. No sound is heard on the wall's other side. Creatures expend 4 additional feet of movement for each foot they travel through the wall.

    At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d8 for each slot level above 4th.

    Any chance you have Arrow of Bone, Heart Ripper or Heart of Stone? I really did like those.

    Heart of Stone feels like an amazing spell for a recurring antagonist to have, but I don't see any reasonable way to balance it in 5e if available to PCs. Neither of the spell's original restrictions on healing fit, so it would either need a short duration (ruining the concept) or it'll let you act like a Bear Totem barbarian with full spellcasting for most of the time (damage reduction being removed doesn't help here).

    I haven't really touched Arrow of Bone, as it reads to me like a hybrid of Power Word Kill and Flaming Arrows (the 5e versions). It could be a nice way for wizards to spread their nova abilities to their allies though. Would making the weapon magical and then having it deal some necrotic damage on a hit still fit the concept? I don't think the gp cost is enough to justify an insta-kill effect you can pass out.

    And the only thing I could come up with to translate Heart Ripper was to take the language from Sleep but have it kill creatures instead of knocking them unconscious. If you have any suggestions on how to balance this, I'll gladly add it.

    These all look pretty good!
