Opus of Elemental Cold


“They're asleep. The gnome dozed off on his watch.” The bandits nod in unison. They've been waiting for this opportunity for days. That wizard should know the Darkblades would come for him after flaunting around so much coin. Wet leaves and damp branches make their footfalls even more silent – deadly. Jerreth points to the right, higher ground, and circles around the camp. Suddenly, a scream splits the night, one of his men. The slosh of water, another scream. A puddle near Jerreth, seemingly waiting for him to near, fires a jet of water, dousing him from head to toe in liquid ice. The cold saps the air from his lungs, all but a squeaky shriek. His hands, shaky, start to turn black from the frost.


Original. There are thousands upon thousands of spell PDFs out there full of material from previous editions which cover a wide variety of applications and have seen years of use. Each of the spells presented here are built from the ground up completely with D&D5e in mind - balanced primarily with the Dungeon Master's Guide guidelines as well as WotC supplementary material in mind to keep the spells competitive and thematic, but not your only choice.

Spells to Fill The Gaps. We all crave more options for spells. And swapping damage type isn't always rewarding - casting "coldball" in lieu of fireball just doesn't do it for many of us. This series of elemental spells brings a new, unique option to each level of spellcasting from Cantrip to 9th level, varying through most schools of magic, but focusing on Conjuration, Abjuration, and Evocation. 

Familiar, but Far from Ordinary. It was my intention when crafting these spells to present options that are thematic and powerful, with familiar and tested mechanics, as well as new and interesting ones. Many of theses choices rose from hours upon hours of playtesting at my own table. 

Class Focus. I tried to build a repository of spells to be appealing to several classes: Thunder options for Bards intent on having more potent weapons. Devious magical traps for prepared Wizards. Even a line of spells for Warlocks based off the horrifying landscape of Tartarus, where the famed Armor of Agathys was born. 

60 and Counting. Purchasing this PDF not only puts a roster of useful spells into your hands as a DM or Player, but also funds additional works. The more purchases, the more I can create for you all. For around the cost of a gumball for each spell, I've done everything I can to ensure each spell is well worth the cost of admission. Being so careful and deliberate cost me, as of the day of launch, 11 straight 6-8 hour days of work - a testamate to how seriously I approached this project! 

Consider all the Elemental options:
Opus of Elemental Acid - Opus of Elemental Cold
Opus of Elemental Fire - Opus of Elemental Lightning 
Opus of Elemental Thunder - Opus of Elemental Earth 
Opus of Elemental Substance: A collection of all 6 elements

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.
