New Spell: Wizard’s Rest

It’s time for me to get this Design Blog up and running again. I’m currently working on a few things, one of which is a Spell Compendium, so here’s a little spell that I created yesterday.

As always, comments are more than welcome!



School conjuration (creation, healing); Level bard 1, sorcerer/wizard 1

Casting Time 1 minute

Components V, S, M (a piece of silk)

Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)

Effect one invisible floating bed

Duration 12 hours (D)

Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

This spell creates a floating bed that can only be used by the caster. The bed is invisible to everyone, except the caster, and looks very much like he desires. The bed also comes with pillows and a blanket. While resting, the caster heals an additional 3 hp per day.

The bed hovers up to 3 ft. above the ground and is unable to move horizontally. The caster could stand on the floating bed, but it would start to descend, hovering 1 ft. above the ground.


Designer’s Notes: I got the idea for this spell during a recent game in which I played a mid-level wizard. I was buying equipment for him and couldn’t really see him carrying either a bedroll or a blanket. What if he had a magical bed? What if he had an invisible floating bed? What a strange sight to see…

This spell could only be a cantrip, and yet, what a waste, since the caster would (probably) only need to cast the spell once per day. What if I made it 1st level and a bit more powerful… that got me thinking about adding a little healing.

However, is healing exclusive to clerics and other divine casters? And yes, I am asking… 🙂

  1. By tradition, yes, healing is mostly confined to divine casters (except for the Bard for some reason). But this is not healing in the sense of “positive energy restores your body” but that you rest more securely and recover faster. I see no problems with it.
