Daily Punch 12-6-17 Teleporting descriptor for Cypher System

I have a guy who wants to teleport and only do that.  I think that sounds like an awesome descriptor if you just want to do  a bit of it and it stays local.

 

Teleporting

For some reason, you can teleport across space.  You don’t go far, but far enough to get out of trouble.  It comes with a cost, but sometimes its one you’re willing to pay!

Trained:  +2 to your Intellect pool.

Ability:  Teleport(2 Intellect points): As an action, you can teleport a short distance.  You have to see where you are teleporting.  You simple move across the distance in the blink of an eye.

Choose one of the following as a connection to the starting adventure:

  1. You’ve always wanted to understand your gift, so you’ve struck out across the world to use it.
  2. You wonder where your gift comes from, and now you’re going out to find it.
  3. You’ve gained this gift at a cost, and now the cost is going out to do a favor.
  4. You like starting trouble and getting far away from it, and now its time to use that gift to get out of trouble by leaving the area!

Daily Punch 12-5-17 Enduring Spell metamagic for DnD 5e

Here’s a metamagic I’ve been kicking around for a bit.

Enduring Spell

When you cast a spell, you can spend a number of sorcery points equal to the spell’s level to have that spell repeat itself on one target affected by the spell at the start of the target’s next turn. (1 sorcery point if the spell is a cantrip). The target is allowed all saved and checks to avoid the spell as the spell allows.

Daily Punch 11-30-17 Song of Triumph spell for DnD 5e

I’m working a few different 5e level 7 spells, so here is an idea for the bard.

Song of Triumph

7th-level enchantment

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You begin a song that fills your allies with all the hope you can muster.  All allies you choose within 60 feet of you are affected by the song.  Every ally is allowed an immediate saving throw to end any fear, compulsion, charm, or any effect that affects the mind, even if the effect that not normally allow an additional saving throw.  At the start of each of the ally’s turns, it may make another saving throw to end the effect as well.  In addition, while you maintain the song, you may not give allies your bardic inspiration, however every ally gains an immediate use of your bardic inspiration that does not count against your daily limit.  This free bardic inspiration must be used before you end concentration on the spell or it is lost.  Finally, while you concentrate on this spell, every ally affected by this spell heals 1d8 hit points at the start of their turn while this spell is in effect.
