Spell Preview, Day Two

Time for another spell. Today’s spell actually came to me this very morning, half an hour before I had to leave for work, but it was rather quick to write. Maybe it was quick to write because I left out a lot of important details, in which case, help me figure them out!

-o-

SECRET WINDOW

School conjuration (creation); Level sorcerer/wizard 1

Casting Time 10 minutes

Components V, S, M (a gem worth 50gp)

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

Effect creates a window invisible to the outside world

Duration permanent

Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

With this spell, the caster creates a secret window invisible from the outside. This window cannot be opened, except if the glass is broken, in which case the window is revealed.

-o-

Designer’s Notes: This is the classic wizard window. You’ve probably met a windowless wizard tower before, but once inside, there are plenty of windows. Yes, it’s a fairly low level spell, but it has a somewhat expensive material component and as the window cannot be opened, isn’t necessarily all that useful.

An alternative way of using this spell… as a spy window between two rooms. And if you are a real rulemonger… as a doorway. First you change part of a wall into a secret window, then you break the window and enter the room…
