Third Edition Liabo Sorcery

General Information

Liabo Sorcery is a special kind of magic that draws upon the power of the moon of Liabo. In order to use this magic, your character must be a Sorcerer or Bard and take the Liabo Bond feat. This feat's only pre-requisite is that the character be a 1st level Sorcerer or Bard.

All spells have both a verbal and somatic component unless otherwise noted.

A character can draw power from only one moon. Once a character bonds to a particular moon, he cannot ever bond to another.

Spells are organized based on spell level for sorcerers. Bards gain a few of these spells at altered levels; double check the spell descriptions if your character is a Bard.

Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. +5 ft./level)
Target: One creature
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will harmless

Lunar Bolt

Level: Brd1, Sor1
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 ft. +10 ft./level)
Target: One creature
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes

This spell creates a bolt of lunar energy that deals 1d8 damage. At levels 3, 5, 7, and 9, the damage increases by another 1d8, to a maximum of 5d8 at level 9. A ranged touch attack is required to hit. This spell can disrupt the ambient magical energy around a target; if readied as per a Counterspell, it can prompt the target to make a Concentration check or lose the spell (succeeding on the Concentration check means the enemy spell goes off as normal); this effect works against any other spell that Dispel Magic could Counter. It can counter itself normally.

Moonlight

Level: Brd1, Sor1
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. +5 ft./level)
Target: One creature

This spell bathes the target in moonlight, restoring 1d8 hit points +1 per caster level up to 1d8+5. This spell will heal an additional 3 hit points if the target is in moonlight. This spell only affects living creatures and has no effect on constructs, oozes, undead, or other such creatures.

Tsukiyomi's Halo

Level: Brd1, Sor1
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 minute/level

This spell creates a halo of pale yellow light that floats around the caster's body. The halo sheds light like a torch, grants a +1 untyped bonus to saving throws, and grants a bonus equal to 1/2 caster level (maximum +5) to the damage of any arcane offensive damaging spell cast. The latter effect does nothing to a spell that does not deal some amount of damage already.

2nd Level

Goodnight!

Level: Brd2, Sor2
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 ft. +10 ft./level)
Target: 20 ft. radius burst
Saving Throw: Will negates

This spell will cause all creatures in a 20 foot radius burst to fall asleep. This spell can only affect creatures with 8 HD or less, and no more than 2 HD per caster level creatures can be affected (max 20 HD worth of creatures). Creatures in the radius are entitled to a Will save to resist the effects. If cast in moonlight, creatures suffer a -2 penalty to their saves.

Moonlight Shield

Level: Brd1, Sor2
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 minute/level

This spell will create a shield of moonlight in the caster's off hand. The shield is considered a small/light shield and has a +3 enhancement bonus. The caster gains proficiency with this shield if he does not already have it. The shield's enhancement bonus increases to +4 at 7th level and +5 at 11th level. The shield disappears if it leaves the caster's hand or the duration expires.

In addition to the benefits provided by a normal enchanted light shield, a Moonlight Shield provides the caster with Resist 5 versus all damaging magical attacks (but not attacks made by magical weapons).

Star Fire

Level: Brd2, Sor2
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 ft. +10 ft./level)
Target: 20 ft. radius burst

Tsukiyomi's Blade

Level: Brd1, Sor2
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 minute/level or as long as moonlight persists

This spell creates a blade of lunar energy in the caster's hand. The blade can be shaped like any one-handed sword-like weapon, including daggers, short/longswords, and scimitars. The caster automatically gains proficiency with this weapon if he does not already have it, though if he is already proficient with the weapon in question he gains a +1 bonus to hit. The caster uses their Charisma score in place of their Strength or Dexterity to determine their attack bonus, if it is higher. The weapon deals damage as a +1 magic weapon and can ignore armor and natural armor bonuses because the blade is not entirely solid (resolve these as melee touch attacks). The enhancement bonus increases to +2 at 7th level and +3 at 11th level. Strength bonuses do not apply to the damage from this weapon. It disappears if it leaves the caster's hand or if the duration expires.

Tsukiyomi's Bow

Level: Brd1, Sor2
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Duration: 1 minute/level or as long as moonlight persists

This spell creates a bow made of lunar energy in the caster's hand. The bow can be shaped like either a longbow or shortbow. The caster automatically gains proficiency with this weapon if he does not already have it, though if he is already proficient with the weapon in question he gains a +1 bonus to hit. The caster uses their Charisma score in place of their Strength or Dexterity to determine their attack bonus, if it is higher. The weapon deals damage as a +1 magic weapon and arrows fire from it are treated as touch attacks. This bonus increases to +2 at 7th level and +3 at 11th level. Strength bonuses do not apply. The weapon disappears if it leaves the caster's hand or if the duration expires.

3rd Level

Dream

Level: Brd3, Sor3
Casting Time: One minute
Range: Personal

Dream will allow the caster to experience vivid and occasionally useful dreams. If the caster casts Dream and goes to sleep with a particular question, problem, or concern on his/her mind, Dream may reveal relevant information through very vivid and sometimes lucid dreams.
