Glitter Blast: A Nuisances Spell for Pathfinder

William T. Thrasher

Glitter is more than just a career ending movie. In the right hands, it's also a weapon. All it takes is a little bit of magic.


School conjuration (creation) [glitter]; Level bard 0, sorcerer/wizard 0

Casting Time 1 standard action

Components V, S

Rang 15 ft.

Area cone-shaped burst

Duration instantaneous

Saving Throw Reflex (see below); Spell Resistance no

You fire a blast of shining glitter in the color of your choice. Creatures within the cone of glitter must make am immediate Reflex save or be blinded 2d4 rounds. A creature blinded by this spell can attempt another save by taking a full round action to clear their eyes.  Everything in the cone is coated with glitter, taking a -2 penalty on Stealth skill checks until the glitter is washed off.

Note: Invisible creatures caught in the cone of glitter lose the advantages of invisibility as their outline is detailed in glitter. Incorporeal creatures are immune to this spell.

Would you rather play Runequest than Pathfinder? No problem! Clint Staples has posted a conversion of Glitter Blast for Runequest.
