Glog-ish Spells


I'm working on a DIY D&D system right now. It's a mash up of every neat thing I've found on the internet while reading OSR blogs over the last few months. Honestly its a kludge and needs to be trimmed back, however, I think a few of the things I've come up with are worth keeping.

The system steals the GLOG magic system pretty much whole-sale, but gives you double the magic dice and has a different spell list (see below).

Some of these spells get a bit algebraic, sometimes using multiple variables to represent multiple costs for one spell. I also use a 'hold' mechanic in these spells that represents maintaining a magical effect by putting a number of dice aside, outside of your dice pool without spending them. When your concentration is broken or you end the effect of your own will, you roll the dice to see if you maintain the magic dice.

Glog Arcane Spells

Summon Animal - Summon [dice] HD worth of natural beasts

Charm Person - Increase one person’s reaction to friendly for [dice] x 10 minutes.

Drain Life- You touch a creature. It loses 1/2 [sum] hit points, you gain 1/2 [sum] hit points.

Control Cold- Cover a surface or creature with ice and frost. Either does [sum] damage to one creature and slows movement by 75% (STR save to avoid slow & halve damage), or covers a [dice x 20ft] radius area with slippery ice.

Color Spray- Target is blinded and gains disadvantage on attacks for 1d6 round. If [sum] is higher than remaining hit points, the creature is stunned for an additional round. If [sum] is double remaining hit points, stun for 1d6 rounds.

Enlarge/Reduce- Make a person or object [dice] * 50% larger or smaller.

Reduce Mass- Make a person or person sized object light as a feather for [dice] minutes.

Burning Hands- Flames fire out of your hands in a 10*[dice] foot cone for [sum] damage. CON save for half.

Magic Missle -Fire [dice] * 2 missles from your hand. They may hit any target in your sight and never miss. Each does damage equal to its roll minus 1, to a minimum of 1.

Mending- Return a degraded item back to its original quality.

Sleep- [sum] HD of creatures fall into a magical slumber. WIS save prevents entirely.

Spider Climb- You can walk along any solid surface for [dice] hours.

Prestidigitation -[Hold 1] Create visual and audio effects.

Comprehend Language- [Hold x] You understand one extra language per [dice].

Magic Shield- Any of the following effects
[Hold x] Conjure a shimmering barrier giving you +[dice] AC. Roll any held dice when you are attacked.
As a reaction, prevent [sum/2] damage to any target within 30 ft.

Wizard Sight- Any of the following effects. Each effect requires its own held dice.
[Hold 1] - You can detect magical effects up to [dice] * 30 feet away.
[Hold 1] - You can see through minor illusions.
[Hold 2] - You can see invisible things
[Hold 2] - You can see through magical darkness
[Hold 2] - You can see the true form of shapeshifters
[Hold x] - You can detect the presences of malevolent beings from other worlds up to [dice] * 100 feet away.

Mage Hand- You can manipulate objects with a spectral hand up to [dice] * 30 feet away. You can lift up to [dice] * 5lbs with the hand.

Energy Resistance- [Hold X] - Choose a type of energy (Fire, Cold, Lightning, etc). A target gain Xd6 damage resistance against the chosen type of energy.

Invisibility - You become invisible for [dice] * 5 minutes.

Knock- Acts as a move check of 7 + ( [dice] * 2) on all things fastened, closed, locked, barred, or stuck within a 50 foot radius.

Lock- The reverse of Knock. You close, fastend, lock, bar, or stick one object. It requires a 7 + ([dice] * 2) Move check to open.

Fly - [dice x] creatures gain fly speed equal to your movement speed + ([dice y] * 30) for 10 minutes.

Illusion - [Hold 1] - You create a small or medium sized illusion. 

Polymorph- Target changes into a creature that is +/- [dice x] HD from its original HD. The effect lasts for [dice y] hours.

Lightning Bolt- All creatures in a straight line, 100 ft long take [sum] * 2 damage. Anyone touching a target takes half damage. If the bolt hits a metallic surface, everyone touching the surface within 200ft takes half damage (dex save to avoid).

Haste- Target creature adds ([dice] x 15) to their movement speed, gains +[dice/2] to their AC, and has advantage on dexterity saving throws. They also gain [dice/2] additional actions on their turn during combat. The effect lasts 1 minute.

Slow- The target creature halves their movement speed, loses [dice] to their AC and has disadvantage on dexterity saving throws, and can only make one attack on their combat turn.

Fireball- Deal [sum] damage in a 20 foot radius up to 200 feet away.

Dispel Magic- End any magical effect that uses [dice] or fewer dice. Dispel Magic can be resisted by an active magic user by comparing the effect's [sum] to the [sum] of Dispel Magic.

Hold Person- On a failed WIS save, one target person is paralyzed for [dice] * 30 seconds. On a successful save, one limb or body part at the DM's discretion stops operating as normal.

Mirror Image - Create 1d4+dice mirror images. When attacked, randomly determine whether an image, or you, are attacked. The image disappears on a successful attack.

Locate Person- You know the location of a person you have met before within two 6 * [dice] miles (one hex). You know their exact heading and speed.

I have read about Dr ISHIAKU the great herbalist doctor from African who can cure disease with his powerful herbal medicine. for the people suffering from the following diseases, Herpes,HIV/Aids, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Hpv, Infections ETC should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes. Although, i sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine through DHL courier delivery company which i took for some weeks and  when I went for the test, i was tested for herpes negative. you can reach him through his email: ishiakuherbalcure@yahoo.com Whats-App him at +2348180828544

  29. I'm here to testify about the great work Dr Ede did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Ede on how he cured her from Herpes Simplex Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that I am going to be cured!! Well I never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later I started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Ede assured me that I will be cured, after some time I went to my doctor to confirmed if I have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Ede via email(dredespellcasters@gmail.com) Or WhatsApp him (+2347064290546)

Braving the Wilds : Part 2

Braving the Wilds : Part 2 - Player Actions See Part 1 for just how we got here. I wanted to create a system that provided a menu of options for wilderness exploration that provide difficult choices and would thematically replicate the iconic fantasy journey… but for this to work, we need two things. A wilderness to explore, and a set of actions the players can use to explore it.  On Adventure Paths Often exploration happens in-between the adventure hook and the goal. The players hear of a dungeon full of treasure and resolutions to their plot hooks. They travel to the dungeon to forward their goals, and they come back to town to see the resolution of those goals. The wilderness in between is a hinderance at best.  If you are running this ‘adventure path’ style of gameplay then this is more than sufficient. Maybe you add some flavorful description to give the players some feeling of what they wilderness is traveling through is like, but you certainly don’t want to was

Alternatives to flanking in 5e

Straight from the DMG, Chapter 8 "Optional Rule: Flanking" Read that? Optional! Well isn't that something?! Somewhere in the transition between editions I got something mixed up. This wouldn't be the first time I've unintentionally grafted something from a previous edition onto this one... "ME: Can I have a Diplomacy check? PLAYER: Wat?" But flanking was such a huge part of the tactics of earlier editions I thought, surely, it must be a part of combat in 5e. Nope! It's an optional rule tucked away in the DMG rather than in the core RAW (Rules as Written). Now, I don't plan on changing how I'm running our current campaign at all. My players have internalized flanking as part of how they play their characters. These tactics are core to their combat strategies, and I don't plan on yanking the rug out from under them. However, this got me curious about how you actually play the game without it. Flanking is such a powerful optiona
