    Siryn's Whirling Sword Dervish

    Used with Permission. Do not repost without obtaining prior permission from the author.

    Level: Wizard 7
    Components: V,S,M
    Range: 1"/lvl
    Casting Time: 1 round
    Duration: 6 rounds +1/lvl
    Saving Throw: NA
    Area of Effect: 1"cube


    When this spell is cast the caster causes a pile of swords (1 sword/level of caster) to rise into a whirling column of slashing blades. Each blade attacks everyone n the area of effect as a fighter of 1/2 the spellcaster's level and doing damage as per the type of swords animated. With concentration, the caster can cause the Whirling Sword Dervish to move amazingly fast (12"), directed by the caster's hand movements. If moved against creatures, they will be subject to attack as above. Any creature which tries to move through the Sword Dervish will be AUTOMATICALLY hit by all swords!

    Only the following spells affect the Sword Dervish:
    Forget: causes 1-4 swords to drop to the ground harmlessly
    Web: slows the Sword Dervish for 1-6 rounds
    Dispel Magic: causes 1 sword/level to drop into a pile if successful
    Haste: doubles movement and # of attacks but halves duration of spell
    Slow: halves movement and # of attacks but doubles duration of spell
    Disintigrate: destroys each sword which fails save vs. disintigrate
    Time Stop: stops the Sword Dervish for duration of the spell

    The material componants are, of course, swords. They do not disappear when the spell expires.

    Note: First Edition, Second Edition"
