    Default Making a new spell similar to Tensor's Floating Disc

    I would like some help with a spell or magic item. I'd like something like Tensor's Floating Disc. But I want something to carry the caster. If anyone has played Warhamer Online, the thing the Magus' use is pretty much what I'm looking for.

    If not a spell, I don't mind a magic item (I actually prefer it so as to not use up a spell every day).


    Thanks ahead of time!


    EDIT: I just found the request a homebrew thread (I looked too quickly I guess). If anyone wants to delete this thread or just run with it, I don't mind either way.

    Arrange so that a Flying familiar (Bat, Hawk, Raven, whatever) has an item of Continuous Floating disk. By guidelines, that'd run at 2,000 gp per caster level - which is 2,000 gp per 100 pounds of load. As *most* characters weigh over 100 pounds, you'll probably want it at caster level 2 or 3.

    A Raven familiar can pull it off, completely core, with a Lesser Ring of Spell Storing and an Extended (or other metamagic'd) Floating Disk to get the caster level up a bit.
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    So basically give the familiar an item that casts Floating Disc, and just have it lead the way? Sounds doable. Any suggestions on how to make it not dependent on another 'person'? Maybe making a new spell? I have no idea how to go about making a new spell :(

    As Tenser's Floating Disk, save that the disk does not follow the caster, but instead can be mentally directed by the caster, and can be ridden by the caster.

    There you go, something decent. It acts precisely like Floating Disk, meaning it just floats along the ground. You can ride it, so it's priceless for the lazy caster.

    I'm sure I've seen a Tenser's Greater Floating Disc somewhere than can be mentally directed, but I checked all the likely splatbooks and I can't find it again.

    You should see Floating Disc, Greater in the Spell Compendium as this allows you to sit on the disc.

    You can sit on tenser's disk, and mentaly direct it. Unless they changed the spell sence 2nd ed. That is the last time I used it.

    I see nothing in the spell description prohibiting a character to ride on the disk...other than the fact that it is slow. Useful to have an "impressive" walk I guess.

    Why not just ask your DM if your character can research a way to improve it, adding greater capacity and speed. Then it could be named "(Your character)'s Floating Disk" or anything you desire.

    Default Goobers, Lighter than Light, Chewing Gum

    This very strange and rare confectionery actually levitates the chewer up to three feet off the ground (300lb 1', 200lb 2', 100lb or less 3'). Once in the air the chewer need only move the gum in his mouth in the direction he wishes to go. Speed of travel is directly related to how fiercely the chewer chews ranging from a lazy lift to a brisk walk.

    While chewing the gum falling damage is reduced by 2d6 or by 20' whichever is less. Distances under 20' do no damage but will cause a balance check to drop items carried in the hands.

    The gum lasts and lasts :). Each stick works for 1+1d3 hours (rolled by the dm).
    Swallowing this gum can cause painful side affects.

    Casting spells while chewing this gum requires a concentration check and creates a 5% arcane failure. You can float until your jaw hurts!

    Cost: ?
    Creation: ?

    I was planning on trying that as well.

    And sigurd, that is too funny :P

    I'll try and find the description for the greater spell, I can't find it at the moment.

    The disk you refer to in Warhammer is a Disk of Tzeentch, and these are actually living (daemonic) creatures not spells or magic items. A nice way to get one would be to homebrew it as a creature and get it as a familiar, though its a little large and powerful.

    The only thing I want to use this for is cosmetic. I just want to be the cool mage that rides around on a disc.


    How do I go about "Researching" a new spell ingame?
