    Default Toon Spells [3.5 D&D]

    These ancient spells of an equally ancient order, from a time some say is best forgotten. Those wizards who study them dare to twist the natural laws of the universe in an attempt at cosmic comedy.
    Or are just very silly.

    Subjective Gravity
    Enchantment
    Level: Sor/Wiz 2
    Components: S
    Casting Time: Standard Action
    Range:Touch
    Target: Caster or one touched creature
    Duration:1 minute/caster level or until discharged
    Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
    Spell Resistance: yes (harmless)
    Target may cross 10 feet per two caster levels of open air. However target must make a will save (DC 10) every 20 feet or look down and start falling, taking normal falling damage when they reach the bottom.



    Summon Anvil
    Conjuration (Summoning)
    Level:Sor/Wiz 5
    Components: V,
    Casting Time: Standard Action
    Range: Medium (100 feet +10 ft./level
    Effect: One Summoned Object
    Target: One creature or object within range
    Duration: 1 round after hitting target or ground
    Saving Throw: Reflex save (special)
    Spell Resistance: No
    A 400 pound anvil appears over targets head, 10 feet above per two caster levels. Target must make DC 15 reflex save or be hit by anvil. However, even if they make the reflex save, 50 percent chance percentile roll determines if they are still hit. If hit, along with normal damage (2d6 per 10 feet falling distance) from falling objects, they are automatically dazed for 1d4 rounds plus 1 per 4 caster levels.



    Painted Door
    Conjuration (Teleportation)
    Level:Sor/Wiz 3
    Components: S, M,
    Casting time: Full Round Action
    Range: Long 200 + 20 ft./level (special)
    Target:You
    Duration:Instantaneous
    Caster paints a doorway on an adjacent solid verticals surface and steps through, appearing instantly at any chosen location within range that is out of line of sight of all creatures in range. If nowhere within range is out of line of sight of a creature the spell fails and is wasted.

    Material Component
    A dab of paint, or a small piece of charcoal, or chalk

    Any critiques on power level, and wording, and anything else, are more then welcome as this is my first homebrew. Thanks to Djinn_In_Tonic for the helpful criticism.
    And in the words of ancient Three Fingered One, "Th-th-th-that's all folks!"

    At first I thought these were going to be Michael Jackson based spells... while there might or might not be some good ones to be made in that vein, I find this much more gratifying since I probably inspired you with my (as yet incomplete) Falling Anvil Discipline.

    I hate to pop your bubble, but. . .while I think I may remember reading that thread, I was inspired by LooneyTunes, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and similar silliness, more then anything. Pretty much 100%, in fact. But thank you for the kind words. I hope you complete your Falling Anvil Discipline
    edit: I hope that didn't come across as rude.

    Strictly worse than Fly, so it's probably a 2nd level spell.

    Since daze is a good effect, the duration is decent, I think the damage should be based on 10ft per 2 caster levels (maximum of 20d6, as per usual). A 5th level spell that starts at 18d6 damage is rather potent, especially when it bring dazing along with it. Also, any reason for the non-traditional save?

    Nice! I like it. A strange Dimensional Door variant, balanced by the longer casting time. I would, however, require you to be adjacent to a wall or other vertical surface to put a door on.

    Ingredients

    2oz Djinn
    5oz Water
    1 Lime Wedge


    Instructions

    Pour Djinn and tonic water into a glass filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with lime wedge. Serve.

    What if the anvil spell had a range of touch, in that it creates an anvil in the open air right in front of you. Then instead of targeting an enemy with the spell itself, the idea would be to get above an enemy somehow and summon the anvil in mid-air so it falls on them.

    Damage would be based on how high you are when you drop the anvil, but the further away the more likely it would be to miss.

    Good point, I'll change that.

    It's based on the old toon gag where the target where an anvil appears out of nowhere above the target, the target, seen the anvil, tries to avoid it by side stepping the shadow seen on the ground, and get clunked anyway. Your right on the damage, that's rather high for that level. I'll change that.

    Ooh, that was exactly how I intended. I'll put that in. I have seen Toons escaping through the floor, but an upright doorway is more 'classic'.

    That would make a great other spell, but if my memory serves me, anvils are as likely to appear out of thin air as be directed more personally by characters in cartoons.

    Nice ideas, particularly Summon Anvil. I wish I had balancing help, but it looks like Djinn already covered that.
