Sex Up Your Sorcery

Fire Woman by Steven Jacques

Having recently read Dying Earth, I found myself completely enamored with the way magic was portrayed and how spells and the sorcerers that wielded such spells were named. Using this cool site I found and a thesaurus as inspiration, I renamed a few traditional D&D spells in an attempt to bring a bit of wonder back into a game that is approaching 40 years old. Here is a sampling:

  • The Improbable Charm of Narban-Zo (Charm Person)
  • Excellent Prismatic Spray (Color Spray)
  • Spell of Dweomer Detection and Analysis (Detect Magic)
  • Byssetzol's Buoyant Hauler (Tenser's Floating Disc)
  • Mortheeti’s Impassible Portal (Hold Portal)
  • Oumexah’s Potent Projectile (Magic Missile)
  • Lunylla’s Linguistic Cognizance (Read Languages)
  • Arcane Discernment (Read Magic)
  • Whisper of the Pacifist's Slumber (Sleep)
Go ahead and give it a shot (but don't forget to share).
