Backbiting Blow

Backbiting Blow Spell1

Transmutation Wood

Traditions arcane

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 60 feet; Targets 1 wooden or wooden-hafted weapon

Duration 1 minute


You cause the target weapon to twist around and strike its wielder. The next time the target weapon is used to make a melee attack or as a thrown weapon, its wielder must attempt a Will save. On a failure, the wielder makes an attack against itself. If the weapon’s wielder misses, the effect persists for the weapon, If the wielder succeeds on an attack roll before the duration, the spell ends immediately.

This spell affects weapons entirely made of wood, such as clubs or staves, as well as wooden-hafted or -handled weapons, such as axes, maces, spears, nunchaku, flails, polearms, and the like. If the weapon has no substantial amount of wood, this spell fails.
