Cure Wounds[edit]

This line of spells is an attempt at fixing in-combat healing - Both the drastic difference in the amount of damage dealt per spell versus the amount healed per spell, and the fact that where a single spell might heal a small-HD character like a Wizard to full HP, the same spell might require two or three applications to return a tougher creature to perfect health.

Each of these spells references healing wounds in a measure of "HD". Each "HD" in this case is an amount equal to the maximum number possible to roll on the size of HD you possess the most of. If you possess 3d4, 2d6 and 2d10 for HP, each HD is only going to heal you for 4 hp, since you have more d4s than any other dice. In a case where you have the same number of each size of dice - Such as 3d4 plus 3d10 - The larger dice is prioritized, so in that case, each HD of healing will heal you for 10 HP.

Also, these spells are Transmutation, as I see melding flesh back together as being little different than transmuting two pieces of metal that having been broken from each other back into a single whole - The only difference is medical knowledge required. Healing is normally Conjuration as it's the forte of the Divine and the casters rely on their deity to heal the wounds with their medical knowledge, thus the healers are actually just acting as a conduit for the power to pass through. In the case of a Divine caster using these spells, feel free to return them to the Conjuration category and have them function without any checks required. For Arcane casters, however, they should remain Transmutation, and require the caster pass a Heal check, to make sure that they weave the flesh back together properly.

These spells are also not considered to be Positive Energy, and thus cannot be used to harm undead.


Cure Trivial Wounds[edit]


Transmutation (Healing)
Level: Bard 0, Cleric 0, Druid 0, Sorcerer/Wizard 0
Components: V, S
Casting time: 1 Full-Round Action
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: Yes

By touch, this spell heals the target for 1 HD worth of hit points. The spell prioritizes most numerous HD first, then largest HD - It heals you based on the HD size you have the most of, or if you have equal amounts of HD, it heals you based on the largest of those HD.

Unlike normal Cure spells, this spell is not positive energy and cannot be used to harm undead.

If the caster is an Arcane caster, they must succeed at a Heal check in order to cast the spell properly. If they fail by 5 or less, the spell still works, but the healing is reduced by 1 hit point per HD for every point by which the roll was failed - Thus if the spell would've cured 6 HP per HD and the rolls was failed by 4, the spell would still work but it would only heal 2 HP per HD. The DC for the check is 10 + The target's total Hit Dice + The target's Constitution modifier.

If the caster is Divine, this spell is Conjuration instead of Transmutation.

Author's Note[edit]

Though this article is at the moment complete and usable, I will likely be making adjustments or additions in the relatively-near future. I'm right in the path of Hurricane Irma from everything I've seen, and the storm is due here tomorrow, so between my sleep schedule and trying to prepare for the storm, I may not be able to make those changes for a few days. My family and I may be forced to leave our home to go somewhere safer, and there may not be much left to come home to when it's all said and done, so have patience with this.
