Spells - Nim's Cantrip Pamphlet

Suggested Price $0.00

Here I have a collection of cantrips I've created, 15 in total.

- 13 Attack cantrips (one for each damage type, except bludgeoning, piercing and slashing)

- 2 Utility cantrips

***Update: All 12 original cantrips are available on D&D Beyond.

***Balance Pass #1: It was pointed out to me that I made a couple of blunders and a glaring mistake or two. So I rectified them. All of the spells should be a bit more balanced, and really fun to play with. I love the feedback. If it doesn't look right to you, say something and I'll get it squared away. It's all towards improving the content. 

***Update 8/21/18: Added 3 New Spells:

- Disrupt Undead (anti-undead attack cantrip for clerics)
- Eldritch Blade (weapon attack spell for warlocks and wizards)
- Puppet Strike (utility attack spell for bards)

Now 15 Total Cantrips

Bewitching Force: If I'm reading this correctly, it can deal 2d4 * 2 / 3d4 * 3 / 4d4 * 4 force damage at 5th/11th/17th level which far outshines every other offensive cantrip. The charm condition feels out of place as well, as Charmed simply gives you advantage on Charisma checks, which aren't really a factor in combat. If trying to use it in role-play, the caster would just end up causing combat because of the damage dealt by the cantrip.

Cold Snap: I would change to a Constitution saving throw, the thematic description of the spell seems to imply lowering the temperature briefly, rather than an actual effect a creature needs to dodge. Additionally I would buff the damage to 1d6.

Corrosive Blast: I would buff the range to 60 ft and lower the initial damage to 1d6. I love the thematic and feel you've got going for it.

Crackling Thunder: I would remove the push effect or lower the damage. Acid Splash deals the same 1d6 damage to two potential targets with no rider effect,...See more

Thank you very much for the feedback. I've done what I can to address everything you've presented here, with a few compromises. Formatting should be fixed, my bad for not double checking the first time. Let me know what you think of the updates.

For a bit of a breakdown ----

Bewitching Force: Yeah I totally screwed up there. The charm is meant to be multi-purpose, mainly as a temporary pacifism (without bonuses to attack like the restrained condition)

Cold Snap: Con totally fits the theme. I went with Dex out of instinct because it's evocation.

Corrosive Blast: Done.

Crackling Thunder: Lowered the damage.

Hoard Gullet: It's a revamp of an old 3e spell. Super fun.

Immolating Blast: Totally screwed up here. Was supposed to be a direct copy of Corrosive Blast. I wasn't sure where else to go with it, fire has a lot of options already.

Lingering Radiance: Done.

Mind Stab: Done.

Necrotic...See more

Thanks for the response!

Looking over it, everything looks formatted correctly.

While I'm no master of spell balancing, with the changes you made these are definitely spells I will allow in games I run going forward, thanks for the upload!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
