Arcane Arsenal: Jet Spells

ZIP File

This is the second product in the "Shaheen's Scratchpad" line of "Short subject" works focused tightly on a single subject.

Arcane Arsenal: Jet Spells introduces a new type of spell into fantasy RPG campaigns - the "Jet" spell. A jet spell can be thought of as a ray spell that lasts several rounds, allowing the caster to hit several different targets.

Necromancy [Jet]
Level: Sor/Wiz 5
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect: Ray that may be focused on one target per round
Duration: 1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes

The casting of soultheft causes a sickly white, flickering beam of energy to erupt from the caster's hand; the beam may be targeted at one creature per round. For the beam to hit, the caster must succeed on a ranged touch attack (as normal for rays and jets). A living target hit by this spell suffers 1d4 points of damage per two caster levels (maximum 5d4) and the caster gains temporary hit points equal to half the damage dealt. On a successful hit, the beam changes momentarily from sickly white to a deep crimson and seems to pulse from the target to the caster. The caster cannot gain more than half the subject's current hit points +5 (on a hit sufficient to kill the target). In addition, a successfully hit target becomes fatigued (a creature already fatigued suffers no additional fatigue effects, but still takes damage). The temporary hit points disappear 1 hour later.

The ray has no effect on nonliving creatures, and if it hits at an undead creature, actually causes the reverse effect - the caster suffers damage and the undead creature gains temporary hit points!

Another of the Sigil's great works. The example spells shows the power of jet spells- they are not simply for blasting opponents.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br> [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
