NEW SPELL: Spewn From the Earth

Sorcerer/Warlock/Wizard Level 1 (Enchantment)


You curse a single target you can see within 30 feet such that the very ground upon which it stands reviles its touch and casts it off. If the target fails its saving throw versus magic, it is catapulted straight up 5 feet per caster level.

The target must be in contact with the ground for the spell to take effect.

Optional Miscast Table for LotFP (roll 1d12):

1 – The earth underneath the target merely explodes upward. The explosion deals 1d4 bludgeoning damage per caster level to the target and everything within 5 feet of it, knocks it prone, and leaves behind a crater 5 feet deep and 15 feet across

2 – Earth spews from the caster: a scrambled incantation causes the caster vomit soil from their mouth for 1 round per caster level.

3 – A 5-foot-square pillar of stone rises up from underneath the target’s feet, stopping at a height of (5 x the caster’s level) feet.

4 – Spell inversion: The target begins sinking beneath the earth at a rate of 1 foot every 6 seconds until it has completely submerged.

5 – A (5 x the caster’s level)-foot radius area, centered on the target begins to buckle and heave violently. Movement speed through the area is halved and any creature standing within the affected area must succeed a Dexterity check or be knocked prone by the tremors.

6 – A fissure opens at the target’s feet and begins spewing (roll 1d6):

  1. Silty water
  2. Molten lava
  3. Noxious fumes
  4. Swarms of vermin
  5. Skeletons
  6. Black blood of the earth

7+ – Roll on generic miscast table

Blade Meditation: At 3rd level, a monk pursuing the path of the sword saint becomes proficient with the longsword, scimitar, and greatsword. As a bonus action, a sword saint can regain 1d4 ki points after performing an attack with a sword.

Measure Twice, Cut Once: At 6th level, a sword saint can use a bonus action to expend ki to re-roll an attack made with a sword, gaining a bonus to the new roll equal to the ki spent. The result of the second roll must be taken even if it was lower than the first.

Sword Sagacity: At 11th level, improvised weapons wielded by a sword saint that approximate the size and shape of a sword (like a folded umbrella or an oar; be reasonable) are considered swords for the purposes of all abilities and effects.

One Thousand Cuts: At 17th level, a sword saint can expend all remaining ki to perform a devastating attack that deals a bonus weapon die of damage for every point of ki spent.
