Hex Pad - TSR, Spell Storage III
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 Storage III
Ares of Effect: Special
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.
