Dragons in Echelon, Part 6a: Red Dragon Spell List Appendix

The red dragons presented in this series use the same three spell lists: Dragon Caster Tradition, the Eldritch Thread of Blight, and the Red Dragon Spell Knowledge list.

These lists are not all complete, and will be expanded on later.

Expert Power: Sickening Touch

At the eldritch weaver’s touch, any aberration, animal, dragon, fey, giant, humanoid, magical beast, monstrous humanoid, or outsider must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 eldritch weaver level + Wis modifier) or become sickened for 1d4+1 rounds.

Master Power: Ray of Nausea

As sickening touch, except that this power produces a ray up to 60 feet long that causes nausea in the target creature for 1d4+1 rounds.

Red Dragon Spell Knowledge

I might replace this more or less entirely with the Eldritch Thread of Fire, the spell lists overlap almost exactly. This list will likely need to be cut down, in many places it has more spells than I usually want for a Spell Knowledge talent. On the other hand, they are almost all to do with fire and burning things; while there are many spells, they don’t really have a wide variety of effect. For later consideration.
