Efficient Spellcasting (feat)
« on: January 11, 2013, 03:09:36 AM »
EDIT: reworded.

And so my quest against cloned spells continues.

Efficient Spellcasting [skill]
A different spell? Really? I don't think so.
Prerequisites: 6th level, Arcana as a trained skill, spellcasting track.
Benefit: choose 2 spells from the left column (see below). Whenever you learn your chosen spells normally, you automatically learn the corresponding spell in the right column. These additional spells do not count against your spells known.
  • Acid Fog: Solid Fog.
  • Fog Cloud: Obscuring Mist.
  • Greater Dispel Magic: Dispel Magic.
  • Greater Invisibility: Invisibility.
  • Greater Prying Eyes: Prying Eyes
  • Greater Scrying: Scrying.
  • Major Image: Silent Image.

Thoughts?

Esoteric adept learns 1 spell, but this is 2. However, the spells are redundant, so that is probably fine.

I think this is fine, b/c it's got plenty of prerequisites. It's pretty interesting, actually.

My Homebrew

My friend just shared this: "Remember that time Gandalf convinced the whole party to flee so that he could take out the Balrog and not have to share any of the XP? Shows up the next session with fancy new robes and everything. What a jerk."

Could use a formatting fix (choose two spells from the following list? okay, how about the ones on the right. what does that get me?). Otherwise, seems fair.
"Honestly, I don't know if this non-core option is 1.0-ready"

No, it isn't. It may be updated at some point but it isn't 1.0-ready, which is why it isn't in 1.0. Anything that isn't in the 1.0 core rulebook should be treated as not being 1.0 compliant and used with caution if at all.

Hmm… I've got no ideas for now (~_~)'

EDIT: maybe "Choose from the following list: X, Y, Z." And then, I don't know, a table?

Or something like "Choose one of the matched pair of spells below. If you learn either spell normally, you will automatically learn the second spell at the level you could cast it normally. If you can already cast the other spell, you learn it immediately."


I dunno. It got kind of convoluted at the end.

With this one it becomes more powerful as you can learn lower level spell and get higher one later for free. Somewhat better than Esoteric Adept, which isn't good.

"choose 2 spells from the left column. Whenever you learn your chosen spells normally, you automatically learn the corresponding spell in the right column. These additional spells do not count against your spells known.
Thanks :3
