Sometimes what a studious spellcaster really needs is to be given some space.

Well ... more or less ...
What kind of buff does the target end up with? ;)
@FiXato None, but they feel warm and fuzzy!
@vicorva delightfully disgusting 😂
@tuturto I did actually do this to one of my players -- our rogue pissed off the wrong wizard.
She went around for a whole day desperate for a spellcaster to remove it and kept getting told 'Have you tried a bath?'
She thought I was trolling her.
I mean ... I was. But not the way she thought!
Eventually she found a wizard who just dumped soapy water on her. 😂
@vicorva poor rogue, hard to sneak in shadows if stench gives you away 😂
@tuturto that was exactly the issue, yes. XD And she absolutely *lived* for pickpocketing people. It didn't last very long but it was very funny while it did and the whole party enjoyed it. :)
This is brilliant& I'd love to use it in my next game!
Also seriously considering this for OOG use when trying to social distance at the market.
@AgentCarter_SSR Thank you! If you do use it, let me know how it goes! It's very funny when people don't know what's happening yet. XD
Also heh. Whatever it takes to get people to STAY AWAY and WEAR A MASK!
Another spell I could use IRL!💜✨
@AgentCarter_SSR hehe, excellent XD
@vicorva I love all of these
@acciomath Ah, good! I shall keep making them, then. :)
@firstname.lastname@example.org ee hee hee heee
@email@example.com gigglesnort these are GREAT
@aldersprig Glad you think so. XD My players have mixed feelings, usually depending on whether they are using these or having them used *on* them ...
@firstname.lastname@example.org as one would.
These make me think of other non-violent "combat" options. I feel like writing my own but I don't want to step on your toes...?
@aldersprig go ahead, I don't have a monopoly on made-up spells :)
