Garbage Children: A Collection of Mostly Useless Spells

Suggested Price $2.00

There are 46 brand new spells in here and I'll be straight with you: they are garbage. Some of them are ok if you combine them with other spells. For example, Squirrel is good if you intend to befriend the squirrel for Beast Sense or Animal Messenger and there are literally no other animals around. Some of them are good if you have resources to deal with the fallout. For example, Lesser Lycanthrope can provide a pretty solid permanent buff to a party member. Also, there’s a ⅙ chance you’ll have to kill them. But if you have a party member with Revivify, those odds aren’t so bad! 

But mostly -- and I cannot stress this enough -- they are pure garbage. Take Chicken Chicken Chicken, for example. This isn’t actually a spell. To cast Banana Peel you literally eat a banana. Maybe Rabies? Maybe not. Probably 20% have something to do with bodily functions, because we are grown adults, such as Farting Smite and Bashir's Bladder Emptier. Many spells do what they say on the tin, and the tin is not especially attractive; spells like Freshen Breath, Become Drunk, and the coupe-de-gras, Waste Spell Slot, a 9th level spell with a 50% chance of wasting your spell slot, and a 100% of not doing anything productive whatsoever.

We did absolutely no playtesting for this. Our creative process went like this:

"Hey, what if there was a cantrip that made bread go stale?"

"Only bread?"

"Only bread. I call it Stale Bread."

"This is truly terrible. Write it up." 

This whole thing was a dumb, dumb joke that spiraled out of control, and now we have subjected you to our dumb, dumb joke.

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.
