Continuing our series of exclusive looks inside recent JBE releases, let’s take a look within Book of Magic: The Lost Spell Words. This is not our first expansion on the words of power magic system. It is, however, the longest delayed. As I explained in the introduction, I literally lost these spell words and found them again later.
Now that they are published and ready to use in your game, what exactly is inside shall now be revealed. These are two spell words inside this short PDF.
Object (Meta Word)
This metaword alters the saving throw, making it affect objects, such as undead and constructs. If the wordspell requires a Fortitude save, this metaword allows it to affect objects. This change does not affect whether or not a successful save negates the effect, reduces it, or has some other effect; it simply alters the types of creatures that can be affected by it. This has no effect on wordspells that require a Reflex or Will save.
Persistent (Meta Word)
Whenever a creature targeted by a wordspell or within the area affected by this metaword succeeds on its saving throw, it must make another saving throw against the effect. If a creature fails this second saving throw, it suffers the full effects of the wordspell, as if it had failed its first saving throw.
