Spells that expire after set time (5th ed)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

How would one go about creating a spell that will run for a set length of time, then cease?

 

Example: A glamour spell that makes someone look beautiful, or a love potion, or even a shielding spell 

 

Thanks!

The problem with charge is that it limits how often you can cast the spell.

 

You could, instead buy it as continuous, uncontrolled and buy it to 0 END then limit it with a time limit.  That avoids purchasing huge amounts of END simply to keep the spell going.

 that sounds that sounds good, up until the time where you say put a time limit on it. That's exactly what I'm asking about. How do you put a time limit on it.

yeah, but if you dont have access to 6th? ?

 

I think you have to look at the limitation guidance from the limited power limitation.  How often is this likely to affect the character.  That is likely to depend on how long you are inclined for that to be.  Without looking at anything else my gut is to make anything over 5 minutes +1/4 limitation and anything above an hour a +0 limitation, applied only to persuade the GM to allow the uncontrolled, continuous, 0 END combo.

Limited Power, "Expires after [duration]." Use your judgement to set the value of the Limitation.
