Baron Valentino's Meteor Form

by Markus Olavi Montola

This is over-powered spell, but it works in my campaign rather well.

Baron Valentino's Meteor Form
Level: 5
Range: 0
Duration: 5 minutes / level
AoE: Self

Meteor Form changes the caster and his equipment to a meteor with diameter of 50 cm. The meteor sears through the sky 100 km / h (combat move 280 !), followed by a flaming tail and loud noise equivalent to large motorcycle. The meteor can not stop nor slow, and it's turning radius is rather bad. Meteor's AC is -4 and it is immune to non-magical weapons. It also removes one third of damage inflicted to caster.

The mage cannot cast any spells other than those affecting only himself. He sees 360 degrees. If he hits something (victim can save vs. Death Ray to dodge the meteor), he inflicts 5d6 points of damage. If he hits something solid, he reverts to his normal form, taking 5d6 damage.

Assuming the meteor form takes 10 seconds, during which the caster is both vulnerable and unable to do anything. When the caster takes his own form, the spell ends.
