Spell Options 10 Countering, Dispel and Failure and the RPG Round Up

Spell Options 10 Countering, Dispel and Failure

For many a seasoned adventurer and explorer, magic can become, whilst still a useful tool, boring. You know what a certain spell is effective for, or how potent you need to be to use the spell found on a scroll.

The Spell Options series is a way of tweaking existing spells without using feats. You can change the colour, make the spell weaker and thus easier to cast or make them more powerful but unstable.

This volume focuses on options that can be used when your spell is countered, dispelled, dismissed and you fail to cast or maintain it properly.

The options within are divided up into four groups:

• Countered
• Dampened – aka temporary dispelling
• Dispelled
• Failure

Each will give various options and effects for each type of spell interaction, from a small chance to not using up spell components, to making it harder to counter your next spell and more.

Assorted Slang and Terminology – Volume 1 – Thieves Cant and the RPG-blog Round Up

Assorted Slang and Terminology – Volume 1 – Thieves Cant

Thieves Cant, sometimes referred to as the Cant, rogues’ cant or TC for short, was/is a secret language formerly used by thieves, beggars and hustlers in Great Britain and other English-speaking countries.

It is a common trope of the fantasy genre – a series of coded words of phrases so the rogues and thieves can talk about various activities

There are two chapters provided here. One is English -> TC and the other is the reverse, TC -> English.

In the E – > TC translation, if there are multiple versions they are separated by a comma. These can be regional variations and so on.

Some sample translations:

English —> TC
Betrayer – turncoat
Constable – harman, myrmidons
Cutpurse – nipper

TC —> English
Academy – brothel
Beak – judge
Cackle – inform
