"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Dark Tower D20/3.0, Spell Storage I

Almost seven month ago back when I first started posting I wrote  about a little module put out by Judges Guild called Dark Tower.  I will post a picture of another module bearing the same name  today. There have actually been two since the first. This is the  middle offering.

This is the D20 3.0 version of the module with the same name. It  was also released with the Judges Guild brand name in 2001. I  have not had a chance to compare the two but except for the stat  differences it seems that the changes made are few. There was  some clean up to the maps which were needed. There was also  additional material that was written by Paul Jaquays for the  original after it was published that was incorporated.

In the end it is a module with the name Dark Tower. It also bears  the brand name Judges Guild. For nostalgia reasons alone that  makes it worth picking up. It can still be found for very  reasonable prices. For an OSR DM it would be cheaper to pick this  up and retrofit it back to the edition of choice.


Spell Storage I

Level: Fourth
Range: None
Duration: Special
Ares of Effect: Special
Components: V,S,M
Casting Time: 1 Round
Saving Throw: None

When this spell is cast the magic user is able to then cast  additional spells into special designed foci. These will hold a  spell for later casting. These devices can only be used by the  caster that originally put the spell into the device.

The caster will be able to store one spell per device. The spells  must be third level or less with the use of this particular  spell. The caster may cast a limited number of spells into any  number of foci. The limit on this is that they must have the  spell to cast and they must be cast continuously with no more than  one round of break per spell.

The number of foci that a caster can have is limited by their  level. The caster can have a number of foci equal to one plus  their level at the time the spell was cast into the foci. The  spell will remain in the item for a period of 24 hours. At the end  of that time the spell energy dissipates.

The material components of this spell will be a small foci that  is designed specifically for a particular spell level. The cost  of the foci will be 50gp per level of the spell it is intended to  hold. Each foci may hold one spell. The foci may be reused after  the spell it contains is used or has lost the energy stored  within it. 

Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the  write ups last, were all written up or conceived of 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.
