DC for a Sleep spell Misfire

Post by Croaker » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:00 pm

One of the possible results of a Sleep spell Misfire is that the caster and some allies fall into a natural sleep. One of my players asked for a Will saving throw, which I agreed to grant. But the spell entry does not provide a DC to save versus, so I arbitrarily set it at 15. Was I correct, or was the Misfire result supposed to be automatic with no saves?

If you were the judge, you were correct regardless of what is in the book.

I believe that the intent was that there was no save, but I don't think that is important. The meta-intent, as it were, is that the judge gets to decide.
