Crown of Suspicion (Magic: The Gathering D20)

Crown of Suspicion (Magic: The Gathering D20)

Harness your fear.

Greetings, dear readers. Yet more Magic: the Gathering to D20 System homebrew waiting in the wings: a conversion of a cycle of, quite frankly, lame Enchant Creature (Okay, youngsters, Enchantment – Aura) spells that were printed in Onslaught, itself the first expansion of the Onslaught Block. My conversions usually entail a certain level of interpretation, and I like the interesting balance of a good effect for some time or a great effect for a short while – it’s that intriguing balance of tactical needs versus strategic resource (spell slots) management that makes playing a spellcaster so rewarding.


I’m not exactly happy with how Crown of Suspicion turned out, “-2/-1″ isn’t much to work with.

Crown of Suspicion
, for better or for worse, plays on the natural fear in all creatures. (As such, subjects with immunity to fear effects cannot gain the effects of this spell.) A creature under the sway of Crown of Suspicion gains a Circumstance bonus on Spot, Search and Listen checks equal to half your caster level. In addition, this fear arouses a certain “cautious recklessness” in the subjects, granting a +4 bonus to attack rolls and weapon damage rolls and a -2 penalty to armor class. At any time, you may, as a swift action, unleash the true power of the Crown of Suspicion (written texts of this spell refer to this as “donning the crown”) as a swift action. The duration of the spell is changed to 1 round per full minute remaining on the previous effect, and the “donning the crown” effect commences the surrounding darkness swelling in a 10 ft. radius burst from each of the recipients of the spell. Opponents in these bursts must make a Will Save or be shaken for 1 minute per caster level. In addition, the bonus skill checks, attack rolls, weapon damage and the penalty to AC double for remainder of the spell.
Material Component: A jet, worth at least 15 gp. This component is not consumed unless the caster uses “dons the crown”.
