Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Spell Idea: GEAS This spell is actually named in the novel, Conan The Invincible. The geas spell compels a captive to tell the sorcerer if the captive sees or speaks to Conan. I'm sure that the sorcerer can use the spell for different instructions. Amanar, the sorcerer, said that the captive was cr...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Spell IDEA: SPELLCAUGHT In Robert Jordan's excellent Conan book, Conan The Invincible, the sorcerer Amanar uses a spell on his slaves to keep them from escaping. Velita, the dancing girl, explains to Conan that she cannot escape with Conan because of the spell. She says that she had tried to escape...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION This spell is a true spell as it requires 1 Power Point. Components are Verbal and Somatic. Duration is 10 minutes plus one minute per level. In the hands of a creative player, this can be one incredible spell. For example, the suggestion could be to sleep, if t...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: ENTRANCE This is not a real spell. It is hypnotism being used. It requires no power points. In fact, this may be the "spell" that Thulsa Doom used to chop off the head of Conan's mother in the 1982 movie, Conan The Barbarian. Remember how Thulsa just stared at Conan's mother? http:...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: PSYCHOMETRY This spell was seen on one of Howard's stories, The Hour of the Dragon . This is a great spell for a GM to have in his game. If he knows that a player-sorcerer has this spell, the GM can really make the outcome spectacular and fun. The spell allows the sorcerer to follo...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: NOT THIS HOUR The downside to using this spell is that it requires that all remaining power points must be used. So, the sorcerer won't be casting any spells after casting this. The upside is that this spell can save a sorcerer's life. Casting time is immediate, so it takes a blink...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: ILL-FORTUNE What's neat about this spell is that the victim may not know that he is being affected by it. Look at the rules for determining curses on page 242 of the core rulebook. This spell lays a -2 modifier on the victim for a month . This penalty applies to all attack throws, ...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: GELID BONES From page 245 of the core rulebook. Great spell. Only costs 1 Power Point to cast. Casting time is one standard action. Somantic component, which is that the sorcerer must touch his target. Lasts One Hour Per Level! Requires Magic Attack Bonus +2, and must know Lesser I...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Fantastic Spell: WARD BY WILL You'll find this spell on page 242 of the core rulebook. It requires 7 ranks in Knowledge (Arcana), so your character will have to be at least 3rd level to throw the spell (unless the character picks up some bonus ranks, which is possible, and which means the character...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

I don't know if you have looked at 5th Edition much, but what advice would you give for turning that edition of D&D into a Sword & Sorcery game? Throw out alignment. People in S&S stories are gray. They are sometimes good and sometimes bad--they are people. Heroes are many times anti-heroes. Make M...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Reading? Writing? Here's a simple and easy to use rule in your game for character literacy. First off, note that the NPC class for Commoners default to illiterate. If a Commoner classed character can read and write, it costs them 2 skill points. In the game, all PCs are considered to be literate. I...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

THE COST OF TRAINING/LEARNING/ADVANCING Way back when, when I ran my long-term campaigns playing AD&D and AD&D 2E, one of the rules I used was that character level advancement usually (not always) required some sort of mentor/teacher/trainer. This could be some grizzled old war veteran who could te...
