Chaotic Commands

Recommended Posts

As mentioned in this thread, the fifth level priest spell Chaotic Commands is pretty screwed up. Obviously the matter of this spell protecting against both verbal and mental commands is something for Divine Remix; however, there's a fixpack-related problem too, in that it protects against a few spells which don't fit into either of these two categories.

 

At least some of these may be difficult if not imposible to fix, but I thought I'd mention them just in case :). Note that in some cases, Chaotic Commands only protects against some of a spell's effects, not all of them. Also, I realize it's debatable as to whether or not Sphere of Chaos *does* fit in the "verbal/mental command" group, but its description makes it sounds as though it doesn't.

 

On an unrelated note, I noticed that of the four Hold spells, only the wizard version of Hold Person actually applies the Held icon. Not sure whether the fixpack has already addressed this or not.

 

 

Protection from Opcode #39 (Unconsciousness)

SPPR720 - Earthquake

SPWI105 - Color Spray

SPWI213 - Stinking Cloud

SPWI711 - Sphere of Chaos

 

Protection from Opcode #45 (Stun)

SPPR718 - Symbol, Stun

SPWI118 - Chromatic Orb (5th + 7th level)

SPWI816 - Symbol, Stun

 

Protection from Opcode #109 (Hold Creature I)

SPPR728 - Implosion

SPWI711 - Sphere of Chaos

 

Protection from Opcode #128 (Confusion)

SPWI711 - Sphere of Chaos

 

Protection from Opcode #175 (Hold Creature II)

SPWI818 - Bigby's Clenched Fist

SPWI918 - Bigby's Crushing Hand

 

Immunity Special Effect Icon #13 (Held)

SPPR728 - Implosion

SPWI818 - Bigby's Clenched Fist

SPWI918 - Bigby's Crushing Hand

 

Immunity Special Effect Icon #14 (Sleep)

SPWI105 - Color Spray

 

Immunity Special Effect Icon #55 (Stun)

SPPR718 - Symbol, Stun

SPWI118 - Chromatic Orb (5th + 7th level)

SPWI816 - Symbol, Stun

 

Protection from Specific Animation - SPMINDAT

SPWI205 - Horror

SPWI818 - Bigby's Clenched Fist

SPWI918 - Bigby's Crushing Hand

 

Protection from Opcodes #45 and #109 and Immunity Special Effect Icon #55 can probably be removed from Chaotic Commands entirely, since there don't seem to be any spells that CC should legitimately protect against which use these. Also, perhaps a Protection from Specific Animation could be added for SPNWCHRM, which is used for most if not all of the Charm Person / Domination type spells.
