As the first of our product previews, I have chosen to give a quick peek at our upcoming April Fools project The Sages Must Be Crazy: The Infamous Mischievous Renaldo Maliauctor.  This project will contain 12 mischievous spells as well as a slew of items for the practical joker in us all.  Below I am proud to present a sneak preview of this product in the form of one of these new spells as well as a handy little item.    

Spells of the Prankster

Cream Pie
Level: Brd 0 Sor/Wis 0
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 Standard Action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5ft./2 levels)
Target: 1 Humanoid Creature
Effect: Creates a cream pie that flies at the target’s face
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw:  Reflex Negates
Spell Resistance: Yes  

Description: You fire a cream pie at your opponent’s face.  The Pie strikes the opponent in the face getting in his eyes and dazzling him for 1d4 rounds as he clears the pie from his eyes.  The opponent dodges the pie if he makes a successful reflex save. 

History:  Originally created by Renaldo Maliauctor as a defensive spell to give him enough time to escape the angry recipients of some of his more elaborate pranks.  He favors this spell heavily as it allows him to add insult to injury as he leaves the pranked victim covered in whipped cream.

Crafts of the Prank Master

Sneezing powder
Description:  A fine gray dust often sold contained in a small leather pouch stamped with the image of a nose. Each bag contains enough powder for three uses.

Use/Trick:  Sneezing powder is used by blowing it into the intended victim’s face (max range of 5 ft.).  The victim must then make a successful for save (DC=10-normal 15-Renaldo’s) or sneeze uncontrollably for one round.  This sneezing disrupts concentration making it impossible to cast spells or perform complex skills and it gives the victim a -2 to his attack for that round.

History:  This is another prank item that was not initially invented by Renaldo but later improved by his master craftsmanship.  He enjoyed using sneezing powder so much in his pranks that Renaldo set himself to finding the strongest herbs capable of eliciting the sneezing response.  The result is Renaldo’s Super Strong Sneezing Powder. Price: Normal Sneezing Powder  5 sp.,  Renaldo’s Super Strong Sneezing Powder 1 gp.

If these sample items piqued your interest, well, the news gets even better – the final product and all its goods can be yours for a scant $1.00.
