Ever wanted to snatch a Magic Missile out of the air? Break out of a Sleep spell? Capture and hold a caster's concentration with your own iron focus?  Now you can.  The Los Angeles D&D Society presents...

The Way of the Spellbreaker

Monks of the Way of the Spellbreaker are an order that believes magic in all its forms has a corrupting influence and should be destroyed. They practice an intense mystical focus that lets them see and disrupt the weave, they learn techniques to find and destroy magic and manipulate ki to break and capture spells. Though their goal is to end magic, it’s not uncommon to find them traveling with magic users while “monitoring” their corruption.

In the Spell Catcher feature you get at 6th Level, it mentions being able to "save against [a] caster's Spell Save DC even if [a given] spell does not call for a save, using your Focus." I understand that by alluding to the Focus feature, the save would be a Constitution Saving Throw, but what would the saving throw in question do? Most spells with a saving throw specify what happens if a creature fails and succeeds a saving throw, the end result of which can differ a good bit depending on the spell. For instance, some spells lessen the damage/effect on a successful save, while others negate it entirely, and others yet may give you slightly different effects depending on whether the save was succeeded or failed.

Good question! The intent was to give Spellbreakers a defense even against the few spells that don't give saves, like Sleep or Magic Missile. In the case of a non-damaging spell, like Sleep, the Focus save would negate its effect. Against a damaging spell, the damage should be reduced by half if the save succeeds, and then subject to the "dampening". So a magic missile would have its damaged halved, and then quite possibly reduced to 0 (dampening), if the Spellbreaker succeeds on their save.
Thank you for playing a Spellbreaker! (or using them as a villain...) Enjoy!

Note: As always, if there's a rules interpretation dispute, DM decides. That said, I'm always interested in hearing what caused the dispute, so I can clarify better in future products!

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.
