Sorcery: Enchantment Spells

Sorcery: Enchantment Spells

Pyramid #3-102 has a very nice article about crafting imbuements. The author of the article made a post on his blog, providing us a few new crafting imbuement skills. Let's turn them into spells! This sure required some additional fiddling with inserting new enhancements while converting skills into advantaged, but I think I did everything right. Adjustable Clothing enables an item of clothing or armor to change its size to fit the wearer. Hex makes an item impossible to remove. Loyal Sword makes the weapon fly back to its wielder when dropped or thrown. Quick-Draw lets the wielder instantly draw the subject weapon.

Psionics: Chronokinesis

Psionics: Chronokinesis

Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder RPG have time-altering psionics. Here's my take on the psionic time manipulation. Abilities that can wreck plots, such as "true" time travel, are excluded.

Sorcery: Steal Attributes

Sorcery: Steal Attributes

At first I wanted to base these spells on Leech, but then decided that using Affliction here is better, because the caster is not supposed to heal HP. Steal Grace, Steal Might, Steal Wisdom, and Steal Vigor steal DX, ST, IQ, and HT, respectively.
