Talk:Conspiracy Theory (5e Spell)

I'm very confused by the description of this spell. How does a "conspiracy" physically (?) attack someone and deal necrotic damage? Quincy (talk) 08:08, 4 September 2018 (MDT)

A conspiracy is the name for a group of ravens I had this in the summary but something went wrong I have fixed it. I also changed the AOE effect to 5ft. because that was ridiculous, I believe it was a mistake but I don't remember at this point. I also increased the level of the spell to 3 because it seemed a bit powerful for a 2nd level spell. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

That makes a lot more sense now. Thanks anon! Quincy (talk) 10:24, 18 November 2018 (MST)

Article Spotlight[edit]

For one thing, very good name. Initially I thought it would be an illusion spell in the most literal sense of making you think like a conspirator. But the play of words on the name to mean a conspiracy of ravens is well-played. I think it's cool to have a spell with such a confounding name and unexpected effect. The only thing I don't get is the "theory" portion. Did you theorize those ravens out of the air and shadows? Is that why they deal necrotic damage? Is that a conspiracy in itself? We don't know. Mechanically speaking, the damage is a bit lackluster for a spell equal in level to fireball, and it is contingent on concentration to stack the damage or maneuver to a new target. But the auto-damage you get with that makes it worth taking feats to bolster concentration. All-in-all, good spell.-Yanied (talk) 10:09, 25 September 2020 (MDT)
