Gakusho 1st Level Spells

I have decided to fallback to Swords & Wizardry as my base rule set for Deluxe Ruins & Ronin, and today I have been converting character classes back to that set. In addition, I have begun creating the spells lists for the Gakusho (formerly the Sohei class). The Gakusho are the priests of the Ruins & Ronin game (either a shinto-like priest to one of the thousands of gods, or a follower of the path of eightfold enlightenment). 

Here are the spells for 1st level Gakusho:

Gakusho Spell List

Animal Companion
Bless*

Deflection
Detect Evil
Detect Magic
Light
Purify Food & Drink
Resist
Weapon Bless

Gakusho First Level Spells
Animal Companion
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: 1 mile radius
Duration: Special
This spell is only effective outdoors and will summon one normal woodland creature within 1 mile of the caster. The animal is determined by the Referee based on the local fauna and must be equal to or less than the HD of the Gakusho. The creature is friendly to the Gakusho and will travel with him but will not go beyond 20 miles from where summoned, and will not enter any human settlement.

There is no telepathic communication, the animal will understand simple commands and hand gestures and will serve the caster to the best of its’ abilities and nature.

Bless
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: Only upon a character not in combat
Duration: 1 hour (6 turns)
This spell grants its recipient a +1 to attack rolls (and improves morale, if the recipient is a non-player character). The recipient cannot already be in combat when this spell is cast. An evil reversal of this spell allows a Chaotically aligned Gakusho to curse a target causing a -1 to hit & morale (if cast before combat).

Cure Light Wounds
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: Touch
Duration: Immediate
Cures 1d6+1 hit points of damage. An evil reversal of this spell allows a Chaotically aligned Gakusho to cause light wounds rather than healing them.

Deflection
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: 30 feet
Duration: 2 rounds per level
Creates a mystical shield that protects all within range from missiles and melee attacks. Any hit on a protected target allows a saving throw vs. death, if successful the target takes no damage from missile weapons and ½ damage from melee attacks. (Failed saves take normal damage).

Detect Evil
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: 120 feet
Duration: 1 hour
The caster detects any evil enchantments, evil intentions, evil thoughts, or evil auras within the spell’s range. Poison is not inherently evil and cannot be detected by means of this spell. Whether there is any distinction between “evil” and “Chaos” is left to the Referee; in most campaigns they are exactly the same.

Detect Magic
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: 60 feet
Duration: 20 minutes
The caster can perceive, in places, people, or things, the presence of a magical spell or enchantment. For example, magical items may be discovered in this fashion, as can the presence of a charm secretly laid upon a person.

Light
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: 60 feet
Duration: 2 hours
The target person or object (at a range of up to 60 feet) produces light about as bright as a torch, to a radius of 20 feet.

Purify Food & Drink
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: Close/Touch (Referee’s discretion)
Duration: Immediate
Enough food and water for up to a dozen people is made pure, removing spoilage and poisons.

Resist
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: Touch
Duration: 1 turn per level
This spell hardens the target against the pains and discomforts of heat, cold, fatigue, and hunger. The target is unaffected by normal heat or cold and suffers -1 per die of damage from magical fire/cold. Fatigue is banished as is the target rested for 1 hour for each level of the caster (although this does not allow spell casters to regain spells). The effects of hunger or starvation are dispelled until the spell has expired.

Weapon Bless
Spell Level: Gakusho, 1st Level
Range: Touch
Duration: Special
The Gakusho can prepare one weapon for combat against a particular foe. The Gakusho must write upon the weapon the identity of the foe and several sutras to give the weapon power. The exact name of the foe is not needed but the identity must be specific, identifying only a single character or creature. For example, stating that the weapon is to be used against the “Jorogumo” is not sufficient. However, stating that the weapon is to be used against the “Jorogumo the dwells in the falls below the Gorge Temple” is a precise enough description. The weapon is considered a magic weapon with a +5 to hit and damage for the first attack only. If the weapon is used against a different creature, the spell is wiped clean and no bonus is given. The spell cannot be cast upon an already magical weapon.

  2. it gives me great joy to share with you on how I was cured of a dreaded virus called HERPES by Dr Zuma, a powerful traditional herbalist. The agony and pains I passed through while I suffered greatly from the shackles of HERPES was so excruciating that it rendered me hopeless, financially handicap and the worse of all, giving up on fate of dying so untimely. I was on google surfing the net since HERPES rendered me jobless and I incidentally came across several comments, appraising Dr Zuma on how good he is and of the numerous diseases he was able to deliver people from. Infact he was reffered bto as a saviour. The comments were encouraging and I stooped to try my luck. I got in touch with him (Dr Zuma) through his email (drzumaherbalhome@outlook.com), he was so confident of himself that there is no affliction too difficult for him to change for good and this gave me hope I once lost. Dr Zuma thereafter said he will be send across to me a herbal mixture as a remedy to the virus with instructions on how to use it. I did just as Dr Zuma directed me and dearly beloved, after a couple of days, the torments of HERPES ceased automatically and today, I am sound healthwise, hale and harty even working at the moment. It is indeed a great news to those who must be suffering from one disease or virus, Dr Zuma is able to challenge that affliction. Why not visit him today through call/whatsapp him through his mobile number +2348119007839 his web/site http://drzumaherbalhome.wix.com/dr-zuma,email:drzumaherbalhome@outlook.com or drzumaherbalhome@gmail.com
