Secret Santicorn: The Magician plus BONUS

Not everyone is blessed with the insanity and credit score to go through Wizard College, which is admittedly probably for the best. However there are those who are willing to ACT like they were insane enough to make a few bucks and perhaps cash in on the general applause uh... respect er...fear? whatever that Wizards provoke in the general populace.

Anyways, these folk replace madness with cunning, magical spell-ferrets with colorful scarves, and fireballs with a pathological disregard for anyone but themselves.

Note: I am working this as a GLOG class nominally because that is what I know best. I will try to include some LotFP stuff in too in order to help with conversion for my Secret Santa recipient.

Class: Magician
HP: As Wizard
Saves: As Specialist
Starting Equipment: Top Hat, extravagant cape, deck of cards
Starting SkillActing
LotFP Skills: As Half Specialist, cannot use Sneak Attack or increase Bushcraft

Magicians gain +1 Cha every other Template.

A: Flim, Flam, Tricks +2 LD, 
B: Hocus Pocus, +2 LD
C: Alakazam, +2 LD
DAbrakadabra, "My Beautiful Assistant", +1 LD

Legerdemain Dice: Like how Wizards possess Magic Dice representing their store of magic power, Magicians have Legerdemain Dice representing their capacity for bullshit. It represents how many scarves you have up your sleeve, how many cards in your pocket, rabbits in your hat, flash powder in your gloves. When "casting a spell", called a Trick, the Magician rolls the number of LD they wish to invest. LD are always depleted regardless of the roll. All the Magicians LD return over night as a result of careful maintenance of gear. Instead of invoking Mishaps or Dooms, each individual Magician Trick has a unique mishaps associated with failing the LD roll.

Tricks: Unlike a Wizard, Magicians need to have a certain amount of audience belief to pull off their spells. A wizard casting levitation literally breaks physics, a Magician "casting" levitation requires invisible wires and a pulley. To pull off some Magician tricks believably, you must pass a certain threshold via Legerdemain Dice. An unbelievable Trick does not function, is wasted, and may have additional consequences. The threshold for some of the more basic tricks are low, but others are quite high. Magicians cannot invest more LD in their Tricks than they have templates. Magicians can also invest additional time to make Tricks more believable by essentially "setting the stage" and checking their devices. For every 10 minutes invested in prep, a Magician can bring down the required Believability score by 1, up to their [template]. The player may figure other ways to bring down the threshold (perhaps the audience is drunk or there is a good mist etc.) that is up to GM approval. Only one Trick can be prepped in this way at a time.

A Magician knows all of the Tricks from the start, but might not have enough resources to pull them off until later levels. Of further note, while a Wizard is incapable of magic without their spellbook, a Magician is incapable of  most Tricks without some article of clothing to conveniently hide their props in.

Flim: Magicians survive primarily off of deception and sleight of hand. As long as they possess 1 LD, they are able to reproduce classic prestidigitation tricks such as producing a rabbit from a hat, various card tricks, vanishing coin sized objects, producing a bouquet of flowers from thin air, and creating small bursts of harmless fire. If time and money are invested, the Magician can pull off various "Stage Show" level tricks such as sawing a person in half or levitation. These effects cannot be damaging on their own or be of specific utility, however they could be distracting, provide potential situational bonuses, or put on a good show. More LD in the Magician's pool, the more overall impressive the tricks appear.

Flam: In a world where real magic is a thing, sometimes a Magician must cheat. If a Magician possesses a real magic wand, they can charge them with LD just as a wizard can with MD, but at double the cost. They still take 1d6 damage as normal from the process and lose the LD for the day. See "Condensed Spellcasting Rules" for additional details.

Hocus Pocus: Sometimes tricks don't go over well with the populace and you find yourself tied to a pole waiting to be burned or locked in a cell to rot. Any good Magician is also a passable escapist. When unimpeded, a Magician can fit squeeze through any space large enough to fit their head. If handcuffed or tied up, the Magician can spend LD on a point for point basis (1 LD=1 bonus) for bonuses on appropriate Dex or Escape Artist checks. This may represent some grease, a small chiv, or a hairpin for getting out of the bind.

Alakazam: Magicians are masters of Quick Change and Disguise. By directly spending LD, a Magician can change out their wardrobe and any sort of make up faster than the eye can see, provided they have some sort of distraction. While you cannot actually transform, you can via prosthetics and appropriate clothing, appear as the opposite sex, someone within [sum] years of your age (within reason), or someone of higher or lower social standing. If using a system with a "Disguise" skill, consider using this ability similar to the Hocus Pocus ability and Dex checks.

Abrakadabra: Like a certain blue wizard famed for his adventures with a unicorn, Magicians have a small spark of true magic inside of them. As a last ditch effort, they may sacrifice all remaining LD and cast at random a spell from the d100 list of Orthodox spells or some other appropriate random list. This is cast at MD 4 or lower depending upon the remaining LD. This is extremely tiring and accumulates an amount of Fatigue equal to double the LD used. LD used in this way can invoke appropriate Mishaps and Dooms.

"My Lovely Assistant": Whenever in a town of reasonable size, the Magician can hire up to two 1HD "Lovely Assistants". These assistants have 1 HD, Morale 7, and stats as a Template A Magician. If the Magician is out of LD for the day, they can still "cast" any trick they know as long as their Assistants are with them and have remaining LD.  Assistants can spend their LD to help "set the stage" for the Magician and increasing the Trick's believably. Assistants tend to not be willing to go into truly dangerous situations and may demand extra pay or refuse to follow.

Magician Tricks

The Added "B:" is believably, the amount that needs to be rolled for the spell to function. 

1. Card Sharp

R: As Bow  T: Deck of Playing Cards D: 1 Day B: 2
More of a honed skill than a Trick exactly, the Magician can prepare [sum] playing cards to have razor sharp edges which can then be thrown with range and damage as a bow+[dice].  Cards used in this way are made unusable if they strike and have a 50% chance of being usable still if they miss. The edge wears off at the end of the day.

Failing this trick causes the Magician to cut themselves, taking 1d6 damage.

2. Ventriloquism (Shamelessly stolen from Skerples)
R: 50' T: creature or object that could make noise D: [sum] rounds B: 3
Target creature or object speaks for you. The target has to be capable of making a noise. You could target a door (hinges), but not a stone wall or an iron ingot. The voice is clearly unnatural or strained, but it sounds like it is truly originating from that point. If you target a river, the voice will be burbling, noisy, and foamy. If you target a person, the voice will sound strange, distorted, and distant.

Failing this trick causes the magician to cough and sputter loudly, instantly giving away their position.

3. Rope Trick 
R: Centered on Caster T: N/A D: Until collapsed B: 6
The Rope Trick involves a specially prepared "rope" that is in fact something more like a collapsible 10' pole with fake knotted hemp exterior. The "rope" is up to [sum]*5' long and can hold [dice] human sized creatures at once. For the "rope" to be steady enough to climb, there needs to either be a place above for the "rope" to brace against or a reasonable way to anchor the bottom. The Magician can choose to create a smoke screen at the bottom or the top of the "rope" to create the illusion that the "rope" is standing on its own.

Failing this trick causes the "rope" to collapse and require [sum] rounds of readjusting before it could be used again.

4. Regurgitate 
R: Personal  T: Variable objects D: [sum] Minutes B: 4-10
A common trick among magicians is the ability to swallow and regurgitate things that can be strange or dangerous. This is in fact done by fine muscle control and keeping the material from ever actually getting in the stomach itself. You have [dice] Inventory Slots in your stomach when you use this trick which can hold any viable liquid (so like water and petrol but not acid) or anything the size of a small frog or smaller. The more inherently dangerous the substance is, the more difficult the trick, so holding water or a key would be a 4 but holding petrol or live frogs would be a 10. You can regurgitate these items in a single action. You can hold this for [sum] minutes before you must regurgitate the items or they are swallowed to whatever consequence that brings.

Failing this trick causes you to either choke and be stunned for [dice] rounds or face some other consequence in line with what you were swallowing. 

5 Vanish
R: Centered on Caster T: 30' diameter area D: Instant B: 7
A trick that involves a large distraction and quick reflexes. On success, the Magician produces some sort of distraction (flock of pigeons, explosion of glitter, smoke bomb, whirlwind of colorful sashes). The target is blinded for 1 round  while up to [sum]/2 human sized individuals can escape, receiving either a [dice] bonus to their movement or doubling their move speed, depending on the system. This only functions as a method of escape, as the target is not actually blinded and can still attack or defend if directly confronted. Creatures who have non-visual senses strong enough to perceive past this may receive a Save to resist the distraction.

Failing this trick causes the Magician to instead blind themselves for one round and fall prone.

6. Mind Reading
R: 30' T: 1 Creature D: [sum]/2 rounds B: 7
Less actual mind reading like some telepathic beings might be capable, this is more putting yourself into a highly aware state. Subtle movements become glaringly obvious, the Magician can see the minutest drops of sweat, and almost hear the changes in heart rates. By focusing on a single target, the Magician is able to predict its actions with significant enough accuracy to have a [dice] bonus to Attack and Defense against it. Outside of combat it could allow for real time mimicry or reading subtle moods. If the Magician is damaged or takes their eyes off of the single target, the effect ends early.

Failing this trick causes the Magicians to instead broadcast their actions so exaggeratedly that the target instead gets [dice] bonus to Attack and Defense against the Magician for the duration.   

R: Personal T: D: [Sum] Hours or until used B: 10
Any Magician is a master of prosthetic and special effects, especially making them appear as realistic as possible. By preparing parts of their clothing and body with tubing, fake blood, and plenty of make up, a Magician can make it so they, or a willing participant, are grievously harmed by even the most minute amount of damage. The next time the Magician is damaged, they spray "blood" and "gore" like a B-Horror film. In addition to staining everything within 30' red, everyone who can see you that does not previously know about the preparation must roll an Morale check with a [dice] disadvantage to the roll. Creatures of [sum]/2 HD or less must additionally Save vs. Fear. Some creatures (vampires, psychopaths, etc.) might be wholly unaffected.

Failing this trick causes the pumps to malfunction, making the Magician slick with fake blood and gore, halving their movement for the duration or until they can have a proper bath.

8. Hypnotism
R: 5' T: 1 Willing Creature D: [sum] Hours or Instant, depending B: 10
While Wizards can hypnotize foes into slumber or real mind control, a Magician's Hypnotism works more like traditional mentalist or psychotherapist hypnotism. By spending 12-[sum] rounds (minimum of 1 round), with a pendulum-like prop, you can Hypnotize one willing creature. The Magician may perform one of the following effects on the creature:

A) The Magician may heal [dice] Sanity Damage (if this is a thing) or allow a reroll on a madness/insanity Save.
B) The Magician may implant a suggestion that is triggered under specific conditions, this suggestion must be something that under ordinary circumstances, the target would be willing to do.
C) The Magician may boost the target's confidence and allow them to reroll one Fear save with a [dice] bonus before the end of the duration.

Failing this trick causes the Magician to hypnotize themselves into a chicken for [sum] rounds.

9.Invisible Wire
R:[sum]*10'  T: One Creature or Object D: Variable B: 12
With the Flim ability, Magicians can levitate small objects such as coins and cards in their hands using "invisible thread." By applying more time and LD, they can pull of more significant "telekinetic" feats. Successfully casting this trick allows the Magician to throw and attach "invisible" wires to a target, which are individually too light to notice but together can exert significant pull. An animate or otherwise resisting target Saves (vs. petrification or Str or something relevant) or is instantly pulled by concealed motors towards the Magician, 10' per [dice]. The wire detaches after the target has been pulled. A significantly heavy or resistant target may instead pull the magician, allowing for a sort of pseudo-levitation. Completely nonresistant objects do not receive a Save and could conceivable be manipulated like a jerky marionette. These latter effects can continue for [sum] rounds before the wire snaps.

Failing this trick simply causes the wires to miss entirely and not function.

10. Produce Flame
R: [dice]*30' Cone T: Area D: Instant B: 16
Magicians love to play with fire, but usually that is in the form of fire swallowing or flash paper or some other innocuous form. However, sometimes you just need to produce a big jet of fire. Using a concealed tube, leg pump full of flammable liquid and a palmed striker for a spark, the Magician can produce just that. This trick does [sum] fire damage to everything within its area of effect. Dex save for half.

Failing this causes an explosive malfunction in the device dealing [sum]/2 damage to the Magician.


Blessed Nablesnard to you SherlockHole, I hope this class is something to your and everyone else's liking. There are many bits of it that are a little more crunchy than what I'd normally do for a class, but you seem to like a bit more crunch. I know you had also specifically mentioned an "ungodly" deception skill, which I tried to replicate to an extent without an actual Deception skill since GLOG does not traditionally make bluffing, persuasion, deception and the like an actual skills. Some tricks, like sawing a woman in half or exchanging places a tied up assistant felt less applicable in a dungeon setting and thus left as part of the Flim ability, its just a general performance sort of feat. 

Furthermore, unlike Wizards, Magicians do not have "Emblem Spells." Reason being, they are ultimately performers. As I previously mentioned, any sort of Trick that would reach such heights would either be a maximum application of an already created Trick or be a stage trick significant monetary and time investment, not suitable to a dungeon. 

Folks who have followed GLOG for a long time might recognize the idea of having a load of Magic Dice that always is lost, something I've pulled and adapted from Arnold's cleric idea. I hope this gives a fun way to differentiate from a straight up Wizard, but I guess time will tell!


A Charles Krafft original

Porcelain Weapons: A product of True Elf engineering, Porcelain Weapons are crafted from primeval clay and fired in the hearts of newly born stars. True Elves can get away with this because they, of course, don't adhere to our timelines. Any Porcelain Weapons found by a party are likely from the ruins of a True Elf's Temporal Kingdom or had fallen from the True Elves' colony on the moon. 

Porcelain weapons are normally indestructible by any means beyond some kind of significant quest and are undetectable to spells such as Detect Magic or Detect Metal. Their craftsmanship is so fine and balanced that all Porcelain Weapons baseline grant +4 to hit.

1. Porcelain Sword- More of an épée than a standard "sword," the Porcelain Sword's hilt and guard is a masterwork of white porcelain depicting an elven maid, her mouth open in serene song. The "blade" extends from the maid's open mouth. Said "blade" is in fact an invisible hardened porcelain 1D monofilament. While incapable of slashing, after all it has no depth, it can pierce anything and cannot be seen to be defended against. The total bonus to hit granted by a Porcelain Sword is +8 and it ignores all armor. It, however, deals only 1 damage per strike.

2.Porcelain Ax- From the side, the Porcelain Axe appears as a white porcelain crescent shaped blade depicting a romanticized image of the moon with a short haft of living wood. Looking at the blade edge on, however, makes the blade seemingly vanish but for a very slender blue glow. The "blade" is in fact a hardened porcelain 2d plane while the blue glow is a small amount of unstable atoms held in stasis. If used as a normal ax, the Porcelain Ax merely acts an an exceptionally fine hand ax. If thrown, however, the stasis field fails, causing the ax to split the atoms and set off an explosion at the target location. Treat as a 5 MD Fireball or some similar effect per system, and irradiates the area of the effect for generations. 

3.Porcelain Dagger- Without an electron microscope, a Porcelain dagger appears as a white decorative baselard dagger with intricate blue design work around the blade, depicting a beautiful rose. The blade, however, actually has an astonishingly sharp fractal edge. When an attack hits with the Porcelain dagger, minuscule slivers of the edge break off into the target and wreak havoc on their circulatory system. The target must make a Con save for 1d6 rounds or take Dagger damage each time. If a 6 is rolled and the target fails all 6 saves, the slivers find their way to the heart and kill target.

4.Porcelain Hammer- About the size of a standard hand held mallet, the Porcelain Hammer has a shaft of living wood and a white porcelain head depicting a stylize thunderhead in blue. If given a tap, the inside of the hammer is revealed to be hollow, although this does not reduce its invulnerability. A living target struck by the Porcelain Hammer must make a Con check or be stunned for a round by intense reverberations running through its body. Inanimate objects take double damage, crystalline objects take triple. The Porcelain Hammer deals damage as a Medium Weapon (1d6 or 1d8).

5.Porcelain Arrow- Only found as single arrows, a Porcelain arrow more looks like a hollow white shaft with an infinitesimally fine tip and brilliantly designed holes through its body. Every Porcelain arrow, when fired, sounds like an individual orchestrational piece of supra-genus quality. A Porcelain arrow pierces all barriers (physical, magical or otherwise) and deals 4d6 damage. Porcelain arrows are all individually unique and are destroyed on use. Any bow that fires a Porcelain Arrow is destroyed.

6.Porcelain Revolver- See Arnold's Post about Elven Revolvers, it is so good.

Twas the night before Narblesnard...

The Furtive Goblin

‘Twas the night before Narblesnard and all through the burrow, one creature was stirring, his brow all a-furrow!

The bars were set against the chimney with care in hopes that the squirrel menace would not soon be there.

Scavenged wrappings lay piled in haphazard shreds, while the nightmarish fluff of a brown tail he dreads.

And acorns a-plenty, wrapped up in a sack; he fastened his coat and pulled tight on the strap.

Knowing his duties these acorns to scatter, he heads for the woods ears alert for the chatter.

Tiny feet in the snow towards the tree line does he dash, knowing times of the essence he must bury his stash.

The cold winter moonlight on his back all a-glow, he prepares for the ritual that all goblins know;

The young goblin finds himself in the forest clear, a bag full of acorns and a belly full of fear.

With deft little fingers and a very sharp stick, he jabs at the soils- deep, dark, and thick.

He finished his digging, hunched in shame, and reached for his acorns to give each one a name.

“Farewell Glurble, and Snurble and Warble and Gispen, I’ll miss you sweet Sargest and Blargest, and Babbler and Crispen.”

“From the sad dark pit you protect goblins all, and now back to my burrow in sadness I crawl.”

And then from the branches a glint of a tooth, panic overcame him with the sight of tail floof.

As he heard the chattering he turned himself round, he ran through the snow and hoped not to be found.

With sweat in his brow and tears in his eyes, he mourns his lost friends and whispers goodbyes.

This time of year he knows tricks won’t suffice, it is up to the acorns and their sacrifice.

His burrow he reached before the squirrels amassed, home, rest, solace at last.

As he rested by the warm firelight, he whispered “Blessed Narblesnard to all and to all a good night.”

d100 List of Zamonian Races

But Lawful, your last post a month ago was a background list! I know, I know, I know. Listen, it has been a busy, maddening month and about the only thing that kept me sane was my Walter Moers' audiobooks. Now, my European readers are probably more familiar with Moers and his works, mostly in the form of his off color comics and the infamous Captain Bluebear. But for those of you who do not know, here is a little primer on Zamonia.

Professor Abdullah Nightingale, 7-Brained Nocturnomath

From the
"Encyclopedia of Marvels, Life Forms and Other Phenomena of Zamonia and its Environs" 
by Professor Abdullah Nightingale. 

Zamonia: The continent upon which the premise of this Encyclopedia is primarily based. It is located East of the West Indies, West of Eurasia, South of Greater & Lesser Trollia, and North of Murkia. Bounded to the East by →"Paw Island", to the West by →"Atlantis", the South by the →"Impic Alps, The", and the North by →"Great Forest, The", Zamonia is among the last habitations of numerous Marvels, Life Forms, and Other Phenomena as untainted by the influence of Mankind→see Human Being, The and Zamonian War of Succession, The. 

Zamonia is a gonzo paradise for anyone interested fantasy adventure. From the lighter hearted "13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear" to the more violent scenes seen in "Rumo and his Miraculous Adventures." From the OSR-esque labyrinths in "The City of Dreaming Books" to the disgusting and power hungry alchemists in "The Alchemaster's Apprentice," Zamonia has something to inspire everyone. There are paths to Hel, magical and dangerous libraries of vast size, the insidious and massive S.S. Moloch, and, of course, Atlantis itself.

For a little taste of Zamonia, I have made for you a d100 GLOG style list of races mentioned in the Zamonia series adapted to the best of my ability while trying to remain faithful to both the books and the mechanics. Many of the races were mentioned at high speed as inhabitants of Atlantis, and for some we possess few details or even just their names. These I have attempted to make reasonably close Zamonian lore for and I've marked them with an asterisk (*). If you see anything here that you would change, please don't hesitate to comment and I'd be more than happy to update the abilities to something more fitting. All images on this are credited to Walter Moers, the author and illustrator of the Zamonia series.

Well without further adieu!
