Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Spell Idea: From The Shadows It's not exactly clear how this spells works. From the climax of Conan The Invincible, it says... "It is his soul!" a voice boomed, seeming to come from every direction. Among the shadows along the columns on the far side of the chamber, one shadow suddenly split, folde...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Spell Idea: From Vengeance in Asgalun Here's another spell that you can develop for your game. It's from issue #72 of the original Marvel Conan The Barbarian comic series (I read it in The Chronicles of Conan Volume 10). A Stygian named Ptor-Nubis casts this spell on Belit. He is a sorcerer of the ...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

The Port of Asgalun Asgalun is usually considered to be Shem's largest port. Some argue that it is the only port of any size in all of Shem. Imagine my surprise when reading the old Marvel Comics series from the 1970's called Conan The Barbarian, I saw, in issue #72 - Vengeance in Asgalan , that th...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Spell Idea: From Conan The Invincible Conan The Invincible is one of my favorite non-Howard Conan yarns. The sorcerer Amanar is the big bad guy in that novel. At the end of the book, we see him cast a spell.... Instead of answering, the cold-eyed man traced a figure in the air, and the figure seeme...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

More Red Sonja and Sorcery A few more random notes... Sometimes, it is unclear whether the gods are real in the Hyborian Age. In Black Colossus , Conan speaks with a god, but it can be debated if that were really a god. At the beginning of Red Sonja , the red haired warrior woman is given the power...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Red Sonja and Sorcery Just a few random notes.... The Children of the Night spell, from the core rulebook, was taken from a Howard story, Hour of the Dragon. In the comic, Red Sonja/Claw: The Devil's Hands , there is a similar version of the spell where a real raven, not a conjured one, spies from ...

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...
