"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

Hex Pad - TSR, Spell Storage III

Short post today. I am a little under the weather.

The Hex Pad was released by TSR in 1979. The hex pad is exactly what it says it is. It is a sheets of hexagonal mapping paper. There is no cardboard backing and they are held together at the top with a wax binding agent.  This is one of those  items that is hard to find and when you do see it they usually go  for too much money. Let's be honest you can print hex paper for  free of the the Internet so this is merely a collectors item. I  can't recall what I paid for this copy as I bought it more than a  few years ago. The last one I saw on eBay had an opening bid of  $70 but never got any takers.

I hope to return to more productive posts tomorrow.


Spell:

Spell Storage III


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

Please not that except for the level of spells that can be stored  this spell is identical to Spell Storage I.

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 between Seventh and eigth level 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.

I used the hell out of my hex paper. Still have some nice maps to this day. Funny thing is I hadn't used hex paper in quite a long time until the company Gamingpaper recently came out with large hex printed paper (oddly enough its glorified wrapping paper).
