    41 KB interesting spell trappings Anonymous 03/27/10(Sat)01:16 No.8810001  
    thinking up trappings for a series of rather generic spells (bolt, blast, etc.) that aren't LOLFIRE. So far the only one I've got is the ability to send swarms of bees at people

    Opening BMSB... searching for appropriate spells...

    What system, pray tell, is this OP? BMSB is D&D 3.5, so if you're running 4e, M&M, etc., I don't want to waste my time copypastaing and instead think up original stuff.

    Attack, Delta
    Type - Necromancy [Cold] [Electricity] [Fire]
    Level - Sor/Wiz 8
    Components - V, S
    Casting Time - Standard Action
    Range - Medium
    Target - Ray
    Duration - Instantaneous, Permanent
    Saving Throw - No, Will Negates
    SR - Yes
    This spell launches a bolt in the shape of a red circle, a blue triangle, and a yellow square that surround the target and erupt in a flash of energy. The creature immediately takes 2d6 each of fire, cold, and
    electricity damage. The creature must then make a Will Save or be permanently petrified. Only a wish, limited wish, miracle, or similar magic can reverse this effect.

    Earth bolt, they won't expect a literal chunk of stone to hit them.

    Radiant bolt, give them a nice tan after it. Next ones may cause skin cancer.

    ego bolt, they feel superior or inferior after taking the magical ego tickler.

    Pun bolt, they are hit by a modern bolt.

    Alright, some abridged BMSB stuff...

    Surround yourself with bubbles. Anyone tries to hit you with a ranged attack, the bubbles turn stone-hard, and then one of them throws itself at the attacker.

    Shred the electrons from a target, which partially disintegrates them and then arcs to the next closest creature, for more electric/disintegrating damage.


    Orb of gravity either draws things toward itself and crushes them, or pushes them away and smashes them into walls, the cieling, etc.

    Ice spike forms around enemies, crushing and freezing them to death.

    Acidic Ice spire freezes nearby stuff, and shoots shards of glowing frozen ice at enemies.

    Horde of invisible, weightless magic constructs damage objects and ONLY objects, but they are very numerous, work fast, and fuck stuff up.

    Cause all of a victim's blood into their penis(or breasts if female), which then explodes doing AoE damage.

    Summon a man-eating ooze monster inside someone's stomach.

    Fire a seed into someone's skin which then uses the victim as food, growing rapidly and stabbing with roots and vines from the inside. Then the resulting plant animates and devours more enemies.

    Polymorph someone into a giant insect. Slowly. Over the course of minutes. While the victim feels each and every cell violently mutating. Once finished, the resulting giant insect bursts into a swarm of normal sized insects.

    Animate someone's skeleton. While they still live. Hilarity ensues as the skeleton starts ripping free of its constraining flesh, all the while the victim is still conscious. It then serves you faithfully.

    ....These spells should probably all have the [Evil] subtype

    Type - Necromancy [Death] [Evil]
    Level - Clr 8, Sor/Wiz 7
    Components - V, S, M
    Casting Time - Standard Action
    Range - Medium
    Target - One Creature With a Musculoskeletal System
    Duration - Instantaneous
    Saving Throw - Fortitude Partial
    SR - Yes
    You point at the target and utter a black word of hate and death. The target’s flesh attempts to literally leap off of its bones, killing them instantly. If the creature makes its save it instead takes 5d6 damage. On a failed save it is instantly slain and its bare bones reanimates as a
    skeleton under your command automatically. You cannot control more than twice your own HD in undead in this manner. If the animate dead spell cannot create a skeleton from the target, the creature simply dies from this spell and its skeleton falls, useless.

    Conjure acid so fast-acting, the guy literally explodes from released gases, which then splatters everyone nearby.

    Cause a target to breathe fire. Constantly. With no immunity to their own fire inside or out.

    Vibrate a target's skeleton until their flesh explodes

    Cause a target to vomit out their brain

    Telekinetically rearrange a target's internal organs alphabetically

    Stretch someone's spine until it rips free of the flesh and transforms into a skeletal snake.

    Cause a target's skin to function and be as sensitive as their tongue.

    my favorite one is something I made up: you start off with a hallway, and you suspend blackened chains from the tall ceiling throughout it. This freaks the heck out of the players, and blocks all visibility while still allowing them to pass through. You can then pretty much stick any normal trap in there - pits, razorwire, pressure plates with dropping spikes, monsters, etc

    The victim steps on a pressure plate which causes a spring loaded spear to suddenly thrust its way up their ass. They take some minor damage and players trade laughs. When they take their foot off the plate to start moving again though the spear head extends large hooks that grab onto the walls of their large intestine. If the pressure plate is stepped on again the spear retracts ripping their insides out through their anus.

    A sloping corridor, the delvers enter at the bottom.

    In the middle of the corridor, there is a slight ditch, about a foot deep, going the entire way up.

    When the delvers get halfway along the corridoor, a large cylinder of rock starts rolling down the corridor.
    If any delvers choose to dive into the ditch, the cylinder passes over them, only for them to be crushed by the thinner wheel that is rolling down the ditch, just behind the first cylinder.
