This is a little cliche, but not bad. If the gnome was played well, with a spunky personality, the PC's could have some fun with him...as long as the GM doesn't overdo it with such characters. Perhaps he could be hired to build something for the PC's, or decide to follow their group around for awhile. Go to Comment
I must assume that writing the name down, is going to require a craft check or something similar.
I would say that the result of the craft check is the save needed to negate the effect.
I would also assume that for the platinum version to work, the victim needs to hear his name being spoken.... After all, the more severe the effect, the more chance there should be that the assesin is exposed.
Hehehe... I knew i left out something...
But the real problem is that there are so many variations that could be used, I dont want to put them all. Try what i wrote and if it dosent seem enough add more penalties... hehehe... Go to Comment
Very cool idea. I think if I were to use this though, the Platinum version would have to have more restrictions than just sight. A death spell-type thing like that should require maybe touching the person or even having the victim read the scroll themselves. But the whole concept is great. Very useful. Go to Comment
Reminds me of Death Note, in the concept of writing a persons name causing them to die. It does need some sort of backstory to go with it, a sort of where it came from an why it exists sort of thing.
How precise does the name have to be, is the full name required, or birth name, or can it work with just a first name and specific intent? Could a wizard or noble avoid this spell by having a secret true name and the public name they go by? Go to Comment
