New Spells for D&D By: Aramax

As both a player and a DM I am obsessed with creating new spells for Wizards. The spells you will see here are mostly very powerful for their Level. This is for the following reasons:

I run VERY low level games, these spells will be for 1-7th L characters. They are NOT balanced for higher level games. You will need to adjust them for higher level characters.

Since I run low level games , the wizards need more juice!

Also I'm not big on details so they will be very basically explained.

If your still with me, stay tuned , I've got a bunch of cool ones coming in the future!

Murder is highly illegal, but it is something that those on an adventure tend to commit. Assuming they didn't do it in public, they have the problem of a body to conceal to give them time to get away from either law enforcement or an angry lynch mob.
