City MagicEdit

CityScape, p. 59) 

[Metamagic


You can use the city itself to enhance your spellcasting.

PrerequisiteEdit

: Caster level 3rd,

BenefitEdit

You can modify any damaging spell you cast to incorporate the urban environment, when casting an offensive spell with an energy subtype - Acid, Cold, Electricity, Fire, or Sonic - you can invest the spell with a portion of the city's spirit. In most cases this investment is gritty and spectacular, drawing dirt, gravel, nails, and other nearby detritus into the spells effect. In other cases the investiture is much more subtle, Often mearly changing the look of a spell. Only half the damage from a spell of the appropriate subtype is considered energy damage, and is thus subject to resistances or immunities, the remainder comes from the city itself, and is not subject to resistances or immunities. This investiture only occurs for spells cast within urban environments, defined as any area above the size of a small town (DMG 137). For Example a wizard uses CITY MAGIC to cast a fireball at a creature with resistances to fire 15, the damage roll is 20, half of it fire damage, and half 'City'. Thus the target takes 10 points of city damage instead of 5 damage fire damage. This feat is useless to casters who cast their spell in a non-urban environment as defined above. A spell modified using city magic feat uses a spell of the spells normal level

Invisible SpellEdit

CityScape, p. 61)  [Metamagic

You can make your spell effects invisible.

PrerequisiteEdit

Any metamagic feat,

BenefitEdit

You can modify any spell you cast so that it carries no visual manifestation. All other aspects of the spell, including range, area, targets, and damage remain the same. Note that this feat has no bearing on any components required to cast the enhanced spell, so the spell's source might still be apparent, depending on the situation, despite its effects being unseen. For example, fireball cast by someone with this feat could be made invisible in the moment of its detonation, but everyone in the area would still feel the full effect (including the heat), and any flammable materials ignited by the explosion would still burn visibly with nonmagical fire. Those with detect magic, see invisibility, or true seeing spells or effects active at the time of the casting will see whatever visual manifestations typically accompany the spell: A spell modified using the Invisible Spell feat uses a spell slot of the spell's normal level.

You must roll to hit; this qualifies as a charge attack, with all relevant bonuses and penalties. If you hit, you deal damage as normal, plus an extra ld6 points for every 10 feet of distance beyond the first 10 feet; thus, a drop of 30 feet causes an extra 2d6 points of damage. You still take whatever damage you would normally take from the fall, but you can reduce the falling damage with a successful Jump check or Tumble check. You cannot use any ability to slow your fall (such as the monk's slow fall ability, or the feather fall spell) whi le attacking in this manner.

The DC of the check, and the number of checks required to track down your quarry depends on on the community size and the prevailing conditions. If you fail a check, you can retry after 1 hour of questioning; the DM should roll the number ol checks required secretly, so that the player doesn't know exactly how much time the task will require.
