Hammer Fist – new DnD Transmutation spell

Hammer Fist spell

Hammer time! Turn a D&D character’s empty hand into a powerful magic weapon with this 2nd level Transmutation spell for Dungeons & Dragons.

The Nimbus shook violently as a second airship slammed into its starboard side. More sky pirates swung aboard, driving the Nimbus crew back.

Jynx’s rapier danced in her right hand as she swatted aside a pirate’s scimitar. Behind her, Maloki rolled up the sleeves of his robe. “Leave these ruffians to me!”

“No firrrreballs!” Jynx growled. The tabaxi’s sleek black fur was already singed from her companion’s previous magical attack.

Maloki pouted for a moment, then giggled as an idea came to him. He clenched a fist with his right hand and grabbed Jynx’s tail with his left. “Mallentus ad pundagna!”

Jynx’s empty left hand shimmered and transformed into a glowing gold hammer. She slashed twice at a sky pirate with her rapier, then ducked low and spun.

The glowing hammer slammed into the pirate. He flew backwards, tumbling over the rail. The pirate let out a weak scream as he disappeared into the clouds below.
