FLGS: Don't have one
I am DMing a game of 5e for some friends and we are having a lot of fun, but the casters and i find the magic system a bit boring and too precise for the magic we had in mind, so I am trying to convert the DCC magic system to 5e. It's not too hard since they both have basically the same stats, health is around the same in both systems up to level 10, so I will have to find a way to solve the beyond level 10 thing (all ideas area welcome).


I was researching for some time and found that there are few spells for DCC which makes sense within the world, why would a wizard share his spells of absolute power?

So I decided to create some, and thought that it would be good to share them with the community so we all have them, and so you could tell me how horribly unbalanced they are. I have to admit that I have stolen many things from other spells so judge my spells and I hope they are of use to you.


Sorry for the english, not my 1st language.


Here are the two spells I have so far:

The caster chants words from beyond the stars calling to a greater power and tearing the veil that separates our world from the one between planes.

I see this Is your first post so welcome to the DCC community Jomacatoba96.

This game seems to foster creativity in the best way that a RPG can. You'll find folks around here encourage judges to take the DCC rules and fill in the grey areas to suit your own style. Making spells that suit your game is a great way to put your own spin on the game.

Good luck in your games and spell-crafting.
