CANTRIPS DOMINATION FTW!!!! Maybe we should combine this with the recent post somehow? Kudos to co-founder/friend of Strolen(?) Drphluid.

Indeed - the 1st ed Unearthed Arcana was the first AD%D hardback with cantrips. Before then they lived in Dragon magazines. Go to Comment

Entwiner Series

A skilled entwiner can manually do most of these tasks almost instantly, these cantrips allow them to do them even faster when intending to show off or needing them done instantly.

Curl - A very weak, short range (6") telekinisis that allows for control of the end of a rope without actually touching it. Very useful when working in odd locations, or when only one hand is available.

Detangle - Untangles mundane knots at four times normal speed.

Defray - Transforms a frayed rope into a whole one.

Splice - instantly splices two ropes of very similar material and size. Splice is as strong as the weaker rope.

Thread - Causes tread or other material to become threaded into a needle instantly. Go to Comment

Leprechaun's gold
This simple yet rare cantrip will allow a moderately skilled magic user to make lead appear and taste like gold, allowing the mage to temporarily fool a shopkeeper.

This has several limitations.

Firstly, the lead does not change shape, and so has to be shaped into coins or ingots before the cantrip is cast (some unscrupulous mages have been known to carry illegal coin moulds and stamps to shape lead disks into coins)

Secondly, the cantrip only lasts for a limited amount of time, and shopkeepers will often know that they have been duped the next day, when they see lead in their coffers, making any long-lasting wealth impossible.

Thirdly, this cantrip is clearly seen as illegal and although not hard to learn, very few would teach it openly and its use is severely punished.

(Interestingly, this cantrip is often used by town guards to break up sieges and hostage situation, and due to its rarity, very few hostage takers will actually know they have been duped) Go to Comment

Waterproof-



Makes a single object or five to ten foot swath of fabric completely waterproof for up to an hour, (d6x10 minutes) great for keeping one self dry when caught in an unexpected shower or keeping the contents of ones backpack dry while fording a deep stream.



Fertilize-



Makes a small five foot area of ground fertile, allowing anything planted in the area to grow readily. If cast upon a living creature the chances of conception should it have intercourse within the next hour is dramatically increased.



Repel Insects-



Works like a top quality topical insect repellent, preventing the target from being fed upon by flea, ticks, mosquitoes etc, very popular among mages that live in swampy areas.



Attract Insects-



makes the object/person or area highly attractive to all varieties of insects (and arachnids) causing them to gather in the area. useful for annoying a group of people or making a market stall appear unattractive it can also prove handy to disrupt someones restful sleep and potentially even deadly if poisonous spiders happen to be in the vicinity.



It can also be used beneficially to concentrate a swarm of bees or other insects for easy capture or eradication or to generate a feeding ground for bats and birds to more easily collect their guano for alchemical purposes.

A very useful list. I can imagine that there would be literally thousands of cantrips in a high-magic world -- experiments originating in the wizardry dorms, failed thesis spells of upper classmen, or even the homebrew cantrips of local hedgewizards and witches. Go to Comment

Sweat



Makes a person begin to sweat the equivalent of an hours hard work in a matter of seconds, great for looking like you just spent the afternoon doing something other than slacking off, also handy for making a romantic rival suddenly less attractive or a fleeing target easier to track by scent.








Deodorize



A lesser version of the standard cleanse spell, this one only removes body oils and odor from clothes or an individual, good for freshening up before dinner and when you don't have time for a proper bath or need to deodorize an especially nasty pair of socks.








Arouse



Good for putting ones romantic partner/s "in the mood," however this cantrip will only make the the target have sexual desire, not confer an attraction to the caster or actively compromise their morals any more than normal arousal would.



Great for putting a shine on an otherwise lackluster date, animal breeders and farmers have also used it to speed up the breeding of their herds and it remains a popular prank often cast upon clergy and other conservative individuals.



Replay



Causes the next few paragraphs worth of speech the caster hears to repeat in their minds continuously for next hour. Great for remembering directions or complicated recipes this cantrip causes an impressive backfire when used to attempt to memorize other magical spells, often causing the caster to suffer severe mana burn from the attempt.



It's also used by bards who wish to annoy unappreciative listeners with a song or dirty limerick they won't be able to easily get out of their heads.



Brain Bleach



This will cause a willing recipient to immediately forget a recent (within the past few hours) occurrence of their choice completely. However this erasure of the memory is only surface deep and anyone bringing the experience back up or witnessing a similar event will return the erased memory at full clarity.



Regularly used on recipients who wish to forget a recent horrific event or tragedy that would otherwise scar them for life (seeing someone squished to goo by a tumbling rampart stone, a back fired spell melting the flesh off someones body, etc..)

On an aside note, the fruit fly lives for just one day, house flys live a bit longer, about 29 days.

If I used this idea, I would make the user invest twice as much hit points as the bug has normally, or 2d4, whichever is higher, but they get to control where it goes. If the bug is killed, they would have to heal the hit points naturally, if they have it return to them before it dies, and crumbles to ash, they would get back half the hit points and have to heal the rest naturally.

I do see some promise, but how did anybody come up with the idea... What is the benefit? Yes you hear what is said near the bug, but can you direct it to travel where you want it to go?

If not, the cost to pay seems rather high.

How many hitpoints does a common housefly have in your setting? It would seem reasonable that you would have to invest only the number of hitpoints that the housefly has.
Now in D&D you will sleep away damage at a rate of your character level.... So your hitpoints would grow back in one single night.

What happens to the "bug" when it reaches its natural time of death? does it turn into a jewel encrusted bug again? Is it just gone?
What happens if the "bug" gets killed? (same as above)
If it is just gone, I would say it is a bad investment to "revive" the bug, it would be smarter to pry of the jewels and sell them. Go to Comment

Mourngrymn's comment on 2005-12-05 10:48 AM
I actually like this idea. I don't really know why.

It is a simple idea, but because it is detailed in such a simple manner, I don't really enjoy it that much. It has so much promise as the two commetns above me has stated. This does have potential, which I gave credit for, but I also took off a lot for there not really being much background or information regarding who, what, where, why, and how. Basics to any story.

On a side note, I actually saw this in an X-Files episode where 'Aliens' had metallic roaches. They looked real, but if you crushed one it would leave metal splinters. Kinda creepy. Go to Comment
