This weekend I watched Tamara. It’s not that great of a movie, but has an interested premise for its horror villain: the girl had been working on a  magic ritual prior to being killed, and her own life blood catalyzed the spell. This reminded me of Discworld where, if I recall correctly, there’s a chance that a dead wizard’s spells will try to cast themselves. That all led to…

When a wizard (or other spellcaster) dies, roll 1d10 on the following chart. A wizard that was aware of the death blow and its source can adjust the result up or down by 1 after rolling.

  1. Wizard’s most powerful AoE triggers on his location.
  2. Wizard’s most powerful AoE triggers on his killer’s location.
  3. Wizard’s most powerful AoE triggers on his nearest ally’s location.
  4. Wizard’s most powerful buff spell triggers on his nearest ally.
  5. Wizard’s most powerful buff spell triggers on his killer.
  6. Wizard’s most powerful debuff spell triggers on his killer.
  7. Wizard’s most powerful single target attack spell triggers on the nearest target.
  8. Wizard’s most powerful single target attack spell triggers on his killer.
  9. GM’s choice of something bizarre happening with the wizard’s most powerful spell.
  10. Reroll. Roll again after resolving the first reroll.
