Daily Punch 5-18-18 Merlin’s Apprentice arcane tradition for DnD 5e

Let’s finish out the giant book strong.  Here’s one for the wizards who use giants to do their dirty work!


Merlin’s Apprentice

You follow a master who needs no introduction.  A trickster and wise-man from an early age he guides you, molds you, and shows you how to work magic that is not always arcane or even uses spells!  He shows you ways to handle situations that sometimes use friendship, guile, and occasionally a spell.

Master of the Real Magic

Beginning at 2nd level, you see what the master says when guiding men is more important than mastering magic.  You gain proficiency in Charisma(diplomacy) and Wisdom(insight).  If you are already trained in either, gain the rogue’s expertise class feature for that skill or possibly both.

Hiding in Plain Sight

Starting at 6th level, the master shows you how to move around unhindered among men not paying attention.  Twice per day you can use a druid’s Wild Shape ability as a druid of your level or cast disguise self  without it consuming a spell slot.

Good Friends are a Good Find

Beginning at 10th level, the master introduces you to his friends.  You can cast conjure elemental but instead of conjuring an elemental you conjure a giant of equal CR.  This spell does not consume a spell slot.  If you lost control of this giant, it is not hostile to you unless you act hostile to it.

The Master’s Final Lesson

Starting at 14th level,  you learn the final lesson you master never learned himself.  You are immune to all spell and effects that charm you and have advantage on all saving throws against spells of the enchantment, abjuration, and conjuration schools.

Daily Punch 5-16-18 Glacier spell for DnD 5e

How about a massive cold spell for DnD 5e?



9th-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 1 mile

Duration: concentration, up to 1 minute

You summon forth a glacier of ice from the deepest, darkest heart of  the plane of water.  The Glacier plows through an area 100 feet long by 40 feet wide by 20 feet high.  All creatures in the area the glacier moves through must make a Dexterity saving throw taking 10d6 cold damage and 20d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save and are frozen in place being restrained and frozen next to the ice, or half as much damage on a successful one and dodging out of the way of the ice.  Creatures struck by the ice are pushed to the front of the glacier.  The ice remains as long as the spell is maintained and any creature that is frozen by the ice or within  10 feet of the ice must make a Constitution saving throw at the end of each of its turns to avoid taking 10d6 cold damage and is restrained as above, or half on a successful save and avoiding being restrained.  Creatures frozen by the ice can take no actions, but if the creature succeeds on its Constitution saving throw, it thaws and may take actions as per normal on its next turn.
