Spells

ImageThe natural alternative to martial prowess, magic represents a core aspect of any fantasy universe. In the DDSE system, magic is divided into three main categories or domains:

  • Arcane Combat: oriented magic used by Mages & Wizards.
  • Divine Healing: and enchantment oriented magic used by Clerics.
  • Universal: Utility magic available to anybody with the Magic-Sensitive feat.

Spells work a lot like Force powers from Saga Edition. In order to learn a spell, you must take the Spell Training feat, or take the ‘spell’ talent from the Mage class. Each time you take a spell, you deplete some of your mana pool. Certain talents allow you to regain mana from spent spells. A new feature to spells that is not present with Force powers is the concept of spell prerequisites. That is to say, some spells have prerequisites, usually requiring you to know other spells. For example, clear requires you to be able to cast any three other spells in order to function. For the purposes of spell prerequisites, only actual spell knowledge counts. Having a magic item that lets you cast spells doesn't count.

  • Basic Spellcasting - Related Ability: Constitution based, although this may be affected by the Divine Caster and Arcane Caster talents (or Natural Caster if the character is a Sorcerer with that talent). If a character possesses both these talents (Divine Caster & Arcane Caster), the lowest ability between Wisdom & Intelligence is used. In the rare event that the character is a Cleric/Sorcerer with the Natural Caster talent, the lowest ability between Wisdom & Charisma is used instead.
  • Basic Known Spells - Related Ability: Intelligence based, although certain talents change this to another ability (Divine Caster switches it to Wisdom, and Natural Caster switches it to Charisma).
  • Spell Disruption: Casting a spell provokes an attack of opportunity. If a spellcaster is damaged while casting a spell, then the spellcaster must succeed at an Endurance check, with a DC equal to the amount of damage they’ve taken. If they fail, then their spell fails. The mana cost is still spent.
  • Effective Spell DC: The effective spell DC is the DC at which the caster choses to cast the spell. This is decided after making the spellcasting check. The caster can chose any DC below his rolled result, as the effective spell DC. This allows casters to manage their mana costs more efficiently. Just because you can cast a DC40 spell, does not automatically mean that you should.
  • Spell Mana Cost: The effective DC divided by 5 determines the mana cost of a given spell.
      • DC 05: 1 mana point.
      • DC 10: 2 mana points.
      • DC 15: 3 mana points.
      • DC 20: 4 mana points.
      • DC 25: 5 mana points.
      • DC 30: 6 mana points.
      • DC 35: 7 mana points.
      • DC 40: 8 mana points.
  • Spell Failure & Mana Costs: If you fail to cast a spell, you must still pay the minimum DC available for the given spell. Failing to cast a shift spell hence costs 4 mana, as the minimum DC of the spell is DC 20. If the minimum DC of the spell varies depending on the target's defenses, the target's defense is then considered to be the effective minimum.
  • Armor & Arcane Spell Failure: Arcane magic is very subtle and demands the most dedicated concentration and presence of mind in order to manifest itself properly. As a result, arcane casters wearing armor suffer a penalty to their spellcasting checks equal to the base value of their armor and shield, excluding magical bonuses.
  • Apostasy & Divine Spell Failure: All Divine Casters much select a God to serve and worship. They must be on good terms with that God and his ethos, in order for his spells to be channeled. The DM can assign a spellcasting penalty to Divine casters who fall outside the graces of their God, which can only be attoned through certain repenting actions, or in certain exceptional cases, by shifting one's allegiance to another God altogther.
  • Casting Defensively: Casting defensively is only available for spells that take a standard action or less to cast. By announcing that he is casting defensively, the character does not provoke an attack of opportunity while casting his spell. However the Spellcasting check suffers -5 penalty.


Arcane Spells

ImageArcane spells access the vast magical energies that flow in the world, and do not rely on otherworldly influences to manifest themselves into reality. Arcane casters research this science and tap into that seemingly unlimited supply of raw magical energy, which they bend and twist to their own often selfish ends.

If the result is less than the target’s Fortitude defense, it takes half damage and is not knocked prone. This is an area effect.
    • Note: The result of the Spellcasting check is automatically the effective DC, for purposes of calculating the mana cost of casting this spell.

Divine spells are emanated from the Gods themselves, and transcended into the divine caster's reality via his faith, often channeled through a holy symbol carried by the caster. Divine magic taps into the positive and negative energy planes, as well as funnels magical energies directly from the Godly entities whom the divine caster pledges service to.

Universal Spells

ImageUniversal spells are spells that are easily accessible to non dedicated spellcasters, who have the will to dabble into the occult knowledge of all things magical, but who lack the dedication to fully devote their efforts towards such learnings.

      • DC 40: Same as DC 30, except you are now immuned to environment based damage.

If you succeed, you gain the bonuses. If you fail, you do not. The DM does not have to tell you whether you have succeeded or failed. In either case, the target usually won’t realize that they have just resisted a magical effect, such charm is a passive spell that seeks to influence rather than dominate.
    • Special: You may spend an action point to make the bonuses last for 10 minutes instead of 1 minute. Note that this improves you own personal magnetism, but does not give you any actual control over other targets.

Clarity

Your senses can perceive what is hidden.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard Action
    • Target: Self
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result determines the effect, if any:
      • DC 10: The subject gains low-light vision up to a range of 20 squares.
      • DC 15: Same as DC 10, and also notices secret doors hidden by magic and sees through the spell illusion.

      • DC 40: Same as DC 35, and also sees into the ethereal plane.
    • Duration: The spell lasts 3 + Constitution modifier rounds.
    • Special: You may spend an action point to increase the spell duration. If you do the spell lasts until the end of the encounter.

You issue a single command to the target, which it must follow.
    • Prerequisites: Able to cast at least 3 other universal spells.
    • Type: Universal, Mind-Affecting
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: One target within 6 squares that you can see and which can see and hear you.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. Compare the result to the target’s Will defense. If your result equals or exceeds their Will defense, you may issue a simple command (up to five words in length), which they are compelled to follow to the best of their ability immediately. Because magic is involved, your target does not need to actually understand your command, but it must see and hear you.
    • Special:When issuing a command, you must follow two principle rules.
      • 1. You cannot command a target to undertake an obviously suicidal action, such as “attack that flight of dragons.”
      • 2. You cannot command a target to undertake an action that grossly violates its morals, such as “kill that child.”

Darkness

You wrap magical energies around your target, making them harder to hit.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: This spell causes an object to radiate shadow out to a 20-foot radius.

      • DC 20: You create an area of shadow that can be pierced by darkvision.
      • DC 30: You create an area of shadow that can be pierced by True Darkvision.
      • DC 40: You create an area of shadow in which no one can see.
    • Note: The darkness lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + your Constitution modifier.
    • Note: Creatures in the area that are not able to see gets a 50% chance to miss on each attack.
    • Special: You can spend an action point to make the effect last until the end of the encounter.

Daylight

You create light as bright as the sun.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: The object touched sheds light as bright as full daylight.

    • Note: The daylight lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + your Constitution modifier.
    • Note: You automatically disable the effect of a darkness spell of the same DC for the duration of the daylight spell.
    • Note: Creatures sensitive to daylight are also blinded by the daylight spell for 1 round.
    • Special: You can spend an action point to make the effect last until the end of the encounter.

Dispel

You reach out and cancel the magical energies that are enhancing your target.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: One object, person, or area with an ongoing spell effect within 12 squares (if targeting an area, you must target the center of the area of effect)
    • Make a Spellcasting check. Compare the result of your Spellcasting check with the Will defense of your target (an unattended object or area has a Will defense of 10 for the purposes of dispel). If your check result equals or exceeds the target’s Will defense, then the ongoing spell is canceled, ending immediately. This has the following effects for spells listed in this section.
      • Charm: The target loses its skill bonuses.
      • Command: The command ends.
      • Fly: The target begins to fall.
      • Illusion: The illusion ceases to be. This can also dispel a stored illusion (see the illusion spell for descriptions of stored illusions).

      • Poison: The target is cured of poison
      • Resist: The target loses its energy resistance
      • Shield: The target loses its bonus to Reflex defense provided by the spell

    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Full-Round Action
    • Target: An area located within 20 squares of you, within line of sight.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result determines the effect, if any.
      • DC 20: An area of 1x1x1 square increases it's hardness by 2, and it's hit points increase by 5. Effect lasts 3 + Constitution modifier rounds.
      • DC 25: An area of 2x2x2 square increases it's hardness by 4, and it's hit points increase by 10. Effect lasts 3 + Constitution modifier rounds.

      • DC 40: An area of 5x5x5 square increases it's hardness by 10, and it's hit points increase by 25. Effect lasts 3 + Constitution modifier rounds.
    • Note: When this spell is used on an area that has been reshape through the use of a Mold spell, the Mold effect can no longer be dispelled.
    • Special: By spending an action point, the fortification can be made permanent. The casting time becomes much longer, taking an hour to cast for each mana point spent casting the spell (the mana points converted into an action point are not included in this amount).
    • Special: The Fortify effect can only be applied once to a given area. The Fortify effect is impervious to the Dispel spell.

Gate

You open a gate to other planes that can be used to travel or to call creatures to your help.
    • Type: Divine
    • Time: Standard Action
    • Make a Spellcasting check. Consult the results below to determine the size of the gate created, if any:
      • DC 35: You create a large sized gate
      • DC 40: You create a huge sized gate.
    • Note: The spell lasts for 3 + constitution modifier rounds. The Gate spell creates an inter-dimensional connection between your plane of existence and a plane you specify, allowing travel between those two planes in either direction. If you have already been to the area you want to cross into, the gate opens precisely at the point you desire. If you only have a general idea about the plane, the Gate opens at a random location on the plane. Any creature with the Magic-Sensitive feat can make an Awareness (Sense Magic) check to detect the appearance of a nearby Gate.
    • Special: You can spend an action point to extend the duration of the gate until the end of the encounter.

Locate

You sense the direction of a well-known or clearly visualized object.
    • Prerequisite: Ability to cast 3 other universal spells
    • Type: Universal
    • Make a Spellcasting check. Determine the effect by consulting the results below:
      • DC 15: Mental image of the object must be specific, clear & accurate. Object must be within 10 squares.
      • DC 20: Mental image of the object must be specific, clear & accurate. Object must be within 20 squares.
      • DC 25: Mental image of the object must be specific, clear & accurate. Object must be within 30 squares.
      • DC 30: Mental image of the object must be specific, clear & accurate. Object must be within 40 squares.

      • DC 40: Mental image of the object must be specific, clear & accurate. Object must be within 60 squares.
    • Note: You can search for general items, in which case you locate the nearest one of its kind if more than one is within range. You cannot specify a unique item unless you have observed that particular item firsthand (not through divination).
    • Special: You can use an action point to cast this spell even if your mental image of the object is not specific, clear & accurate.

Mend

You use magical energies to restore a decrepit or broken object.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: One object you can touch.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result determines how many hit points are restored.

      • DC 10: The target recovers 1d6 hit points.
      • DC 15: The target recovers 1d6+5 hit points.

      • DC 35: The target recovers 3d6+15 hit points.
      • DC 40: The target recovers 4d6+20 hit points.
    • Special: This effect can heal constructs, including Warforged characters.

Mold

You employ magical energies to bend, mold and reshape existing matter. This spell can be used to create holes through walls, carve passages out of rock, and even to reshape available matter into buildings and fortifications.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Full-Round Action
    • Target: An area located within 20 squares of you, within line of sight.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result determines the effect, if any.
      • DC 20: Mold a cubic area 1x1x1 square. Effect lasts 3 + Constitution modifier rounds.
      • DC 25: As DC 20, but the affected area is a cube of 2x2x2 squares.
      • DC 30: As DC 20, but the affected area is a cube of 3x3x3 squares.
      • DC 35: As DC 20, but the affected area is a cube of 4x4x4 squares.
      • DC 40: As DC 20, but the affected area is a cube of 5x5x5 squares.
    • Note: It is possible to mold raw materials into buildings and fortifications, but this requires a craft skill check of the appropriate difficulty, as well as the necessary material components.
    • Special: By spending an action point, the effect can be made permanent. The casting time becomes much longer, taking an hour to cast for each mana point spent casting the spell (the mana points converted into an action point are not included in this amount). Even when made permanent, changes done with the mold spell can still be dispelled normally. In such an event, the matter returns to it's original state.
    • Special: When assembling permanent fortifications or buildings, it is possible to mold them into separate modules that are appended to each other. However a wall without something to hinge on can crumble. It's the reason why Wizards tend to build towers, as it is architecturally easy to stack one module over another using this spell, as long as the raw materials are made available.

Push

You create a gust of energy that knocks your target back.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: One object or character within 12 squares and within line of sight.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The target makes a Strength check. If you beat the target’s Strength check, you push it back 1 square plus an additional 1 square for every 5 points by which you exceed the target’s check result. If you push the target into a larger object, the target takes 1d6 points of damage. The target gains a bonus or penalty to its Strength check based on its size: Colossal, +20; Gargantuan, +15; Huge, +10; Large, +5; Medium, +0; Small, -5; Tiny, -10; Diminutive, -15; Fine, -20. In addition, it gets a +5 stability bonus if it has more than two legs or is otherwise exceptionally stable.
    • Special: You can spend an action point to apply a -5 penalty to the target’s Strength check made to resist aero. Additionally, if you successfully push the target into a larger object, you deal an additional 2d6 points of damage from the extreme force of the thrust.

Resist

You wrap magical energies around your target, granting them resistance to energy.
    • Prerequisites: Able to cast three other spells.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: Self
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result determines resist’s effect, if any.

      • DC 20: As DC 15, except the resistance is 10.
      • DC 25: As DC 15, except the resistance is 15.
      • DC 30: As DC 15, except the resistance is 20.
      • DC 35: As DC 15, except the resistance is 25.
      • DC 40: As DC 15, except the resistance is 30.
    • Note: The energy resistance granted by resist persists for a number of rounds equal to 3 + the target’s Constitution modifier.
    • Special: You may spend an action point to grant a +5 bonus to your energy resistance.

Scry

You gain a vague, momentary impression of events happening around a particular being in some distant place.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Full-round action
    • Target: One creature you have met before.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. If your check result is less than the target’s Will defense, you gain no information (including whether the target is alive or dead) and cannot use this spell against the same target for 24 hours. If you succeed, you can sense whether or not the target is alive or dead and gain a vague sense of its immediate surroundings, what it’s currently doing, and any strong emotion or sensation it may be feeling (such as rage or pain). A dead target has a Will defense of 30 for the purposes of this spell.
    • Special: If you successfully use this power, you can spend an action point to gain a clear mental image of the target’s surroundings and other creatures and objects within 6 squares of it.

Strike

You use magic to enhance your battle prowess.
    • Prerequisites: Able to cast 3 other spells.
    • Type: Universal
    • Time: Swift action
    • Target: Self
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The result of the check determines the effect, if any:
      • DC 15: You gain a +1 bonus to your next attack roll and deal an extra 1d6 points of damage if your attack hits.

      • DC 40: As DC 15, but the damage is 8d6 instead.
    • Special: You can spend an action point to deal an additional 2d6 points of damage.

Symbol

You use necromantic magic to empower a rune.
    • Type: Universal, Necromancy
    • Time: Full Round Action
    • Target: A surface designated by the caster.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. The caster must declare the effective DC of the spell prior to casting by selecting which type of rune he is preparing. To succeed, the effective DC must also exceed the target's Willpower defense.
      • DC 25: Symbol of Pain. The target suffers -4 penalty to combat, reactive & general skill checks for 3d6 rounds.
      • DC 25: Symbol of Sleep. The target falls into a catatonic state for 3d6 rounds.
      • DC 30: Symbol of Persuasion. A single target becomes charmed for 3d6 rounds.
      • DC 30: Symbol of Fear. A single target becomes panicked for 3d6 rounds.
      • DC 35: Symbol of Stunning. A single target becomes stunned for 1d6 rounds.
      • DC 35: Symbol of Weakness. A single target suffers a crippling weakness that deals 3d6 points of Strength damage.
      • DC 40: Symbol of Insanity. A single target becomes permanently insane.
      • DC 40: Symbol of Death. A single target instantly suffers 150 damage that cannot be mitigated or avoided.
    • Note: Magic traps such as the rune from the Symbol spell are hard to detect and disable. A rogue with the proper talent can use the Search skill to find a symbol of and Disable Device to thwart it. The DC in each case is the Symbol spell's own effective casting DC.
    • Note: As a default, a symbol is triggered whenever a creature does one or more of the following, as you select: looks at the rune; reads the rune; touches the rune; passes over the rune; or passes through a portal bearing the rune. Regardless of the trigger method or methods chosen, a creature more than 60 feet from a symbol can’t trigger it (even if it meets one or more of the triggering conditions, such as reading the rune). Once the spell is cast, a symbol of death’s triggering conditions cannot be changed. In this case, “reading” the rune means any attempt to study it, identify it, or fathom its meaning. Throwing a cover over a symbol to render it inoperative triggers it if the symbol reacts to touch. You can’t use a symbol offensively; for instance, a touch-triggered symbol remains untriggered if an item bearing the symbol is used to touch a creature. Likewise, a symbol cannot be placed on a weapon and set to activate when the weapon strikes a foe. You can also set special triggering limitations of your own. These can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. Special conditions for triggering a symbol can be based on a creature’s name, identity, or alignment, but otherwise must be based on observable actions or qualities. Intangibles such as level, class, Hit Dice, and hit points don’t qualify. When scribing a symbol, you can specify a password or phrase that prevents a creature using it from triggering the effect. Anyone using the password remains immune to that particular rune’s effects so long as the creature remains within 60 feet of the rune. If the creature leaves the radius and returns later, it must use the password again. You also can attune any number of creatures to the symbol, but doing this can extend the casting time. Attuning one or two creatures takes negligible time, and attuning a small group (as many as ten creatures) extends the casting time to 1 hour. Attuning a large group (as many as twenty-five creatures) takes 24 hours. Attuning larger groups takes proportionately longer. Any creature attuned to a symbol of death cannot trigger it and is immune to its effects, even if within its radius when triggered. You are automatically considered attuned to your own symbols, and thus always ignore the effects and cannot inadvertently trigger them.
    • Note: Symbols last indefinitely, until they are triggered, after which they are expanded.
    • Special: Each symbol type has it's own material components. Failure to cast the spell successfully results in the loss of the material components.
      • Symbol of Pain, Sleep or Fear: Mercury and phosphorus, plus powdered diamond and opal with a total value of at least 1,000 gp.
      • Symbol of Persuasion, Stunning, Weakness, Insanity or Death: Mercury and phosphorus, plus powdered diamond and opal with a total value of at least 5,000 gp.

Thunder

You call down thunder from the heavens to strike a target.
    • Type: Universal, Electric
    • Time: Standard action
    • Target: Multiple targets within a 6-square radius centered on you.
    • Make a Spellcasting check. Make a single check and compare the result to each target’s Reflex defense. If you equal or exceed their Reflex defense, you deal 3d8 points of electric damage to each target. The number of targets affected is determined by your Spellcasting check result:
      • DC 15: Three targets.
      • DC 20: Four targets.
      • DC 25: Five targets.
      • DC 30: Six targets
      • DC 35: Seven targets
      • DC 40: Eight targets.
    • Special: You may spend an action point to deal an additional 2d8 damage to each target you hit.
