Avengers in Lankhmar, Cassandra's Beads of Irresistable Force
Cassandra's Beads of Irresistible Force
Ares Effect: Target
Casting Time: 1segment
Saving Throw: None
When this spell is cast the magic user brings into being small beads of force similar in all ways to the spell Magic Missiles as far as the number and damage they do. In addition to those factors the missiles from this spell will have the effect that when they hit the target the force of the impact will carry them backward in a direct line along the path of the missile. The distance carried will 3" plus 1" per missile.
Creatures carried back in such a manner will continue the full distance unless they are stopped by some intervening obstacle. Individuals stopped by an obstacle will take damage equal to the remainder of the distance they would have traveled just as if they had fallen that distance. The victim is entitled to a save for this damage and a save will result in half damage. Creatures suffering this impact damage must also make a save versus Petrification or be stunned for 2-5 rounds.
Individuals not striking an intervening obstacle will go the entire distance and then must make a save versus their Dexterity (rolling under) to retain the footing or fall and spend the next round recovering. There will also be a save versus Constitution (rolling under) or they will also be stunned for one round in addition to the time caused from falling if any.
The material component of this spell is a small glass bead that will shatter at the completion of the spell's casting.
Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the write ups last, were all written up back in the 80's so the terminology may not appropriate for anything other than 1e and depending on how well I did back then it may be slightly off for that as well. If there is any duplication of spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :) Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on me. If anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please let me know in advance and all I ask is proper credit. In the future this disclaimer will appear at the end of the spell write up.
