How to Make a Homebrew Spell, Step by Step

Step 1: Check if the spell Already Exists

Basically this step seems more obvious, but really it needs to be stated. As we given in the above tables there are over 450 spells are already created. So before you get your creative juices flowing, take the step back and even do a search of what’s already existed/available. Likely there are dnd 5e homebrew bard spells which does what you want or something same. Suppose, if you do not find your spell, on to step 2. But if you find your spell, or else something very close, you have to look at what modifications would be necessary for the sake of it in order to function the way you would like to. However, sometimes it’s just a class change or else minor step away from whatever you need.

Step 2: Outline its Effect

In this step some creative part will take place in. Of course you didn’t find the spell that you’re looking for, so that now you need to be flesh out an idea you have. But in order to make this step simpler, don not try to do everything simultaneously. You simply need to start by just describing the effect. So, do not give it a level, choose damage, or decide on components. Of course all of the details are come after the initial concept is set.

A Spell Example: Serpent’s Grasp-The illusory snakes are encircle a creature and also it restrict them with force. Suppose, if a spell is successful that they take the damage each turn for a particular duration and are restrained.

So with this particular example (unbalanced and non-specific) we shall get a glimpse of what a final spell shall look like. In any case we haven’t been set anything more than the effect at this specific point, but of course we can already see wherever we need to go next with a spell that specifics to complete it and then make it much balanced. However the effects that are selected for an example are similar to hold person or entangle, but even also offer the damage and some light flavoring.

Step 3: Choose a Spell’s Details – School, Casting Time, Duration, and Components

In this step we are set up some details which are critical to the spell’s initial balance and use. The school is easiest just because you match what the spell usually does to the school that it belongs to.

However casting time requires a bit more thought. But if you would like it to be used in the combat, so the casting time is basically 1 action or 1 bonus action. If a spell is going to be used outside of the combat, you need to be make sure its casting time is appropriate for its function and also usefulness (the better it is, the longer it should take to cast, in general).

The duration is another part which usually takes thought. Suppose, if you use it in combat most of your typical durations are instant, 1 round, 1 minute, 10 minutes. Even though, if it lasts for longer than a round, it must also have Concentration in many cases. Of course, sometimes even the shorter spells should require the concentration to make up for their strength and balance the game.

Here the components are come in three flavors. Basically the verbal are any spoken words or else incantations. The somatic component are fancy hand motions and also the gestures. Al though, the material components are the basic materials used to cast the spell. So the material components are the only consumed if the spell indicates they are, that means you could use the similar components over again.

Of course you should try to give the stronger spells more components and even weaker ones less. The utility spells could often be used with a single component, So that such as only a verbal or only somatic, in order to make them much more helpful in tough situations wherever the players may be silenced or restrained.

For an example:

Serpent’s Grasp

  • School: Enchantment
  • Components: V, S, M (a small live asp)
  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Duration: 1 minute, Concentration
  • Effect: Illusory snakes encircle a creature and restrict them with force. If the spell is successful they take damage each turn for the duration and are restrained.
Step 4: Set the Spell’s Targeting, Range, Attack Rolls, and Saves

After the above three steps it’s time to keep in your first pass on the numbers. of course you’re probably won’t get this right the first time, so do not worry about that initially. So, just get some numbers down and also balance it in the next steps.

The targeting usually comes within a few flavors and also each one is different. Typically you could only target some of your favorite things within the spell’s range. Even by targeting is either based upon line of sight or not. Of course targeting involves types specifications just like the person, creature, object, or location. However you can even add in targeting the adjectives such as friendly, hostile, willing, or known for really complicate things. So in the spells that are available in the core 5e rule books, targeting tends in order to be fairly specific. In any case of combat, almost all of the targets are within line of sight.

Basically, whenever selecting the targeting shall be considered on how minor changes the alter a spell’s overall utility. Of course enhancing the range on existing spells that might severally alter their balance. But knowing how existing spells that work with a range and even though targeting really helps when it is designing your own, so in this case look at the similar spells when trying to set up targeting for yours.

Now the attack rolls are next. Of course if a spell is the combat projectile, it typically needs an attack roll (but excluding magic missile and AOE spells), and of course if it’s not a projectile that it either just happens (healing spells, divination, some illusions) or else it has a save against to it. The Fireball is an AOE, or else the area of effect, spell. Even though it does not have any spell attack roll which is associated with it, but the creatures in its radius shall make a save which is against to it instead (saves negates half damage in this case).

Here the spell saves are almost against to the caster’s spell save DC and also the type of save is almost dependent upon the type of magic.  So the AOE spells are typically Dex saves, Enchantments and Illusions are usually Wis saves, and the Str and Con saves are come up situationally with different spells in different schools.

Continued Spell Example:

Serpent’s Grasp

  • School: Enchantment
  • Components: V, S, M (a small live asp)
  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Duration: 1 minute, Concentration
  • Range: 60 ft.
  • Effect: Illusory snakes encircle a creature you can see and restrict them with force. On a successful Wisdom saving throw the creature takes X damage and the effect ends. On a failed Wisdom save the creature takes X damage and is restrained for the duration. At the end of each of the creature’s turns the creature takes X and then it may repeat its Wisdom saving throw. On a success the spell ends.

Now the dnd 5e homebrew spells has a range, targets only visible creatures and also has a chance for a spell effect in order to be removed with a wisdom saving throw. So at this specific point the spell was ready to get the damage which is added to it for filling in the X’s in the description.

Step 5: Set the Spell’s Damage or Healing

Basically, this step is by far an easiest to do, but here the hardest to get right. Of course you’re almost literally just selecting a how many of what dice that you would like players to roll for this. A good starting point is to look at an existing spells like the baseline or go with your gut.

Continued Spell Example:

Serpents Grasp

  • School:Enchantment
  • Components: V, S, M (a small live asp)
  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Duration: 1 minute, Concentration
  • Range: 60 ft.
  • Effect: Illusory snakes encircle a creature you can see and restrict them with force. On a successful Wisdom saving throw the creature takes 1d4 damage and the effect ends. On a failed Wisdom save the creature takes 1d4 damage and is restrained for the duration. At the end of each of the creatures turns the creature takes 1d4 and then it may repeat it’s Wisdom saving throw. On a success the spell ends.
