(The Law of Fives dictates that these updates be in sets of five, but these are short and silly, so you get 15 if them.)
Back when Wizard was first being playtested, a typo turned the Magic Fist spell into “Magic Fish.” That has stayed with me . . .
So here are three fives of magic spells created by one-letter typographical errors from real spells. The back-translation to the original spell is left to the reader.
Creates a small but well-stocked row of shops where you may buy dungeon essentials.
Catches its victims in the most mundane and boring fashion imaginable.
If you have read Terry Pratchett, you are already giggling. If not, you need to go read Terry Pratchett.
Also works on priests, mullahs, and (at a -4) lay brothers. Has no effect on senior clergy.
Creates a hideous odor, a carrion reek almost as bad as Orc perfume.
Causes strategic bits of condensation to fall from the cavern ceiling onto the nose of the foe, distracting them.
Summons a huge pontiff to smite your foes.
Creates a giant screen on which is broadcast the World Wizard Fighting finals.
Everyone in one megahex gets out-of-the-box ideas, which may or may not work.
Sages have argued for centuries: does this feed a crowd of arbitrary size, or just smite the Sassenach with a summoned salmon?
Creates a small area of truly filthy weather; leaves Slippery Floor behind it.
Summons many, many spiders, or one very big one.
Pops their pants! Makes them dance! Everyone will look askance!
Creates a refrigerator.
