Casting Time:

Saving Throw:
Area of Effect:
By means of this spell, the magic-user causes his or her material form to “blink” out and back to this plane once again in random period and direction during the duration of each minute the spell is in effect. (cL ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MONSTER MANUAL, Blink Dog.) The segment of the round that the spell caster “blinks out” is determined by random roll with 2d4, and during this same segment he or she will appear again 2’ distant from his or her previous position. (Direction is determined by roll of d8: 1 = right ahead, 2 = right, 3 = right behind, 4 = behind, 5 = left behind, 6 = left, 7 = left ahead, 8 = ahead.) If some object is already occupying the space where the spell caster is indicated as “blinking” into, his or her form is displaced in a direction away from original (round starting) position for any distance necessary to appear in empty space, but never in excess of an additional 10’. If that extra distance still dictates the magic-user and another solid object are to occupy the same space, the spell caster is then trapped on the ethereal plane. During and after the blink segment of a round, the spell caster can be attacked only by opponents able to strike both locations at once, e.g. a breath weapon, fireball, and similar wide area attack forms. Those not so able can only strike the magic-user if they managed to attack prior to the “blink” segment. The spell caster is only 75% likely to be able to perform any acts other than physical attack with a hand-held stabbing or striking weapon during the course of this spell. That is, use of any spell, device, or item might not be accomplished or accomplished in an incorrect manner or in the wrong direction. Your referee will determine success/failure and the results thereof according to the particular action being performed.
