Creating your own magic items, spells, worlds
Inspired Unreality beginning topic

There are three levels where magic can be created
The writer of the game or of a module or setting for a game can create magic
This includes all the spells in the players handbook to a specific item created for a quest or module
DMs can create magic tailored to their table and their game
So instead of looking in a book for a magic item the DM can instead imagine a new magic item out of whole cloth
And, for me the most interesting is a player character creating magic during game play
So a dwarf can go to a forge and create a magic weapon that is needed to complete a quest
Or a wizard can occupy himself entirely with spell creation
The creation of magic by player characters is a little dance between the PC and the DM
The DM calling for dice rolls during the creation of the magic
And then, of course, the dice rolls to test the magic during play
Untested spells would have a lower reliability level so are more difficult to successfully deploy than tried and true spells
And the first time a wizard tries a new spell he better not roll a 1
Or he opens himself up to the DMs imagination as to what could possibly go wrong

Unfortunately it is not a guarantee that a die will comply with a
command not to land on a 1. Crossing fingers probably won't work

I think rolling 1s is more fun than rolling 20s

I'll try to remember that. Maybe I can wish into exsistence many 1s for
you to enjoy.

Is a wish a type of spell?

As a matter of fact. The problem is it's not reliable.

Meaning maybe it doesn't work at all. Or maybe it works but you don't
really get what you're wishing for
Or worst of all you do get what you wished for but it wasn't really what
you wanted (be careful what you wish for)


or perzackly - where's the spell check for imaginary words

LOL in your noggin.

for that we need a spelling spell

Hmmmm where's Webster at when you need him?

Djini's are magic creatures that grant wishes

OH? how many of your wishes have they granted?

If you tell your djinn that you wish you could spell better
you will find yourself spelling better correctly and mispelling every
other word
Better iz teh enema off gudnough

Go figure!

you get the idea


If wishes were horses beggars would ride

Only if they can saddle it, well maybe if they ride bareback and don't
fall off.

or is the wish for a horse and the tack

You mean presaddled and ready to go?

Wish is the mightiest spell a mortal creature can cast. By simply
speaking aloud, you can alter the very foundations of reality in accord
with your desires.

ZDL posted another great fringe review on Mythic, a game system

Solo or group. It has an interesting and simple mechanic. Read about it

FollowMeAndDie reports on his Roll 20 game. He says, "In today's session
of my AD&D game, the party managed to get through a week of game time.
This included introducing two new players & characters into the party,
surviving an ambush, & finally getting to the sand ships to sail across
the desert to face the Son of The Necromancer." Read more here.
