AC3 The Kidnapping of Princess Arelina, Lower Resistance
The Kidnapping of Princess Arelina is an item that I have never used. It is also one that I keep meaning to buy a better copy of. The copy I have (as the image shows) is damaged. I want a new copy but it is just not that important to make a point of buying.
This is one of those items that only a completist feels the need to have a copy of. The module its a short adventure with a total of less than 20 encounters as I recall. It was designed to make use of the cardboard miniatures amazingly enough. The art of the miniatures seemed to be a little too 70's for me even though it was published in the 80's.
From the back of the module:
Your party moves stealthily up the dark hallway. Torn cobwebs dangle from the ceiling; to the south, a huge, iron door creaks eerily in the mysterious wind. A massive iron gate crashes down, blocking the corridor ahead!
Wait a minute. The pencil broke.
Mapping dungeons is quick, easy, and exciting with the 3-D Dragon Tiles. Use the Dragon Tiles to bring your DUNGEONS & DRAGONS and ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS adventure to life.
This package contains 51 3-D figures, featuring characters, creatures, walls, and doors. Two sheets of 84 two-sided feature tiles, showing traps, treasures, furniture, and special surprises, are also included. A Dungeon Mapping Grid is provided to help you lay out dungeons quickly.
The 3-D Dragon Tiles also comes with a special D&D/AD&D adventure, "The Kidnapping of Princess Arelina."
Can't find an eraser? Don't worry. Leave the dungeons to us.
Duration: 2 Rounds/Level
Area of Effect: One Creature
Casting Time: 5 Segments
Saving Throw: Special
When this spell is cast the magic user will cause the target to become more susceptible to magic. This will have the effect of causing magical effects to have a greater effect on them and affect their saving throws.
The increase in the magical effect will depend on the outcome of their saving throw against the spell. If the save is failed by less than four then magical effects will have a 50% increase. If the save was failed by five or more points then the victim will have a 100% increase. The increase will increase both the affect and the duration on the victim. If the intended victim has an innate Magic Resistance and they are affected this will be cut in half for the duration of the spell.
If the saving throw is made then they will instead suffer immediate damage without an additional save to reduce it. If the saving throw is made they will suffer 1d4 points of damage for every point that they made their saving throw by.
There will be an additional odd result if the victim fails their saving throw. If a victim fails their saving throw they will become immune to damage from normal weapons for the duration of the spell. They will become more susceptible to magical weapons though and any plus for damage will be doubled.
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.
