Hello everyone, and welcome to Obscure Arcana, your one-stop article dedicated to deadly and dazzling magical spells. It’s Sword Week here at Necromancers of the Northwest, but that doesn't mean you mages need to get all bent out of shape; in fact, I have a collection of sword-themed spells to help bridge the gap between magical and martial might.
This spell allows you to magically improve a single weapon you touch, granting it a number of magical properties. This spell allows you to add a number of special abilities to the touched weapon, worth up to an enhancement bonus of +1 for every 5 caster levels you possess, to a maximum of a +4 equivalent enhancement bonus at 20th level.
By means of this spell you gain an insight into the use of a number of bladed weapons. For the duration of this spell, you become proficient with the following weapons: bastard sword, elven curve blade, falchion, greatsword, longsword, scimitar, short sword, and rapier.
This powerful spell conjures a spectral sword to your hand. The sword can take any form you choose, from a simple dagger to an ornate greatsword. Regardless of the sword’s image, it is no harder to wield than a dagger and always does 2d10 points of slashing damage on a successful hit.
This spell is prized by wizards who fight against foes armed with weapons. Unless the target succeeds on a Fortitude saving throw, the item gains the broken condition. Furthermore, the item cannot regain hit points via magical means and remains broken until repaired by mundane means.
This powerful spell makes any blade you hold incredibly sharp, allowing you to perhaps kill your foes in a single blow. For the duration of the spell, any bladed weapon you hold gains the vorpal special ability.
