This'd actually be a nice touch for the beginning of that climactic battle where everyone's still facing off.

It needs another spell to make a light breeze to acompany it. :smallamused:

Wonderful. Reminds me of a song.



The old gunfighter on the porch
stared into the sun
and relived the days of living by the gun
when deadly games of pride were played
and living was mistakes not made

and the thought of the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke
Ah, the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke

It's always keep your back to the sun
and he can almost feel the weight of the gun
it's faster than snakes or the blink of an eye
and it's a time for all slow men to die
and his eyes get squinty and his fingers twitch
and he empties the gun at the son of a *****

and he's hit by the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke
hit by the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke

Now the burn of a bullet is only a scar
he's back in his chair in front of the bar
and the streets are empty and the blood's all dried
and the dead are dust and the whiskey's inside
so buy him a drink and lend him an ear
he's nobody's fool and the only one here

who remembers the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke
remember the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke

He said I stood in that street before it was paved
learned shoot or be shot before I could shave
and I did it all for the money and fame
noble was nothing but feeling no shame
and nothing was sacred but stayin' alive
and all that I learned from a Colt 45

was to curse the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke
curse the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke

Now he's just an old man that no one believes
says he's a gunfighter, the last of the breed
and there are ghosts in the street seeking revenge
calling him out to the lunatic fringe
now he's out in the traffic checking the sun
and he's killed by a car as he goes for his gun

So much for the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke
so much for the smell of the black powder smoke
and the stand in the street at the turn of a joke

I'm sure you could successfully argue any DM around to conceding that you could do this with Prestidigitation.

I'd say Somatic instead of Verbal. Just flex them fingers over the gun, er, bow... I'd also say it would come with light breeze to roll it along, and maybe just need a pinch of sand.

Thanks, guys. :smallbiggrin: I've tweaked it just a little bit. :smallwink:





...tumble along, with the tumbling tumbleweed!

A spell designed to cue dramatic effect? And you didn't feel the need to give the spell to the bard?

OMG, yes, BARD!

what are the size, hardness, and hp of a tumbleweed?

*shrug*
No more than a fraction of your average bush.

Being wood I believe it TECHNICALLY has hardness 5... but, depending on how springy they are I wouldn't give it any of that... hitpoints depend on what you count as "destroyed".

I concur that the bard should get this... and it should STILL have no verbal component for them I think...

Hehehe, very nice. Any good one-one confrontation in a hot/dry climate needs tumbleweeds!

*slaps face*

I'd give some convuluted explanation of why I didn't, but it would be a lie. :smallamused: I can't believe I didn't think of that. Well, now I did. Thanks!

Make it produce more weeds at higher levels. If it scales enough, Draken can use it as an attack spell. :smalltongue:

Nice spell

*snerk* I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that. :smallbiggrin:

Glad ya like it. That's actually a good idea, by the way, one weed per every two caster levels sounds good.

What would be the damage on 125 tumbleweeds crushing you? :smallbiggrin:

Nah, verbal makes totla sense for bards.
As an earlier post mostly says, "Wah wah wah... wooahwah!"

I have nothing to add, but please allow me this...

You have convinced me to play a bard. Even more than before.

I will love this spell almost as much as one of my former player's homebrew spells: Ubo's tinderfingers

lol reminds me of when I used the create food and water spell to crush a level 20 wizard with my level 16 favored soul... Thats enough to feed 48 humans 24 ogre's 12 giants, 6 purple worms or 3 collosal red dragons and sustain them for a whole day! That breakfast, lunch and dinner for the entire village all dropped on your head!

This would be a pretty nice spell with 1 tumble weed for level or if you could up the size for every 4 levels... GARGANTUAN TUMBLE WEED OF DOOM! lol... Making sure to add this to my spell list.

None. They distribute the weight too well over too large an area...

Tweaked it just a little: the material component a bit and also added it to the Beguiler's spell list :smallwink:.

I think this is just a west coast thing, but...

Summon Akward Turtle
Enchantment
Level: Bard 4
Components: S
Casting Time: 1 full-round action
Range: Close
Effect: Forces Akward Turtle upon others
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will partial (see text)
Spell Resistance: No

You twiddle your thumbs without looking at them. If antone else looks at them, they must immediately drop what they are holding and also take up this action. They may not speak or use their hands. A will save negates the loss of hand control, but any subject that looks at your hands is effectively silenced for the entire duration. Only a burst of laughter from an outside party can end the effect of the spell prematurely.
