Spells (16 pages)
Here is the description for all the spells in the book. Here is a few of my favorites.
Animate Tools – Think Micky in Fantasia.
Antagonize Wounds – take one damage a round if fort save is failed
Askew Balance – make save or fall down
Blossom – Makes flowers bloom
Create Snow – you make it snow... I do have one issue with this spell. It has a volume instead of a area of effect. I would have preferred something like you can create heavy snow in a 10 by 10 area, moderate snow in a 20 by 20 or light snow in a 40 by 40 per level(this is just a example to make a point and not accurate) instead of creating X gallons of snow per level, fitting in what ever area can hold it or up to three times as large.
Dark Bubbles – Makes shadows become deep shadows. Like the spell but silly name.
Discern Health – over several rounds can tell the health of living creatures.
Dim – lowers the light in a area.
Encrypt – Make something written encrypted and hard to read.
Light my Fire – start a normal fire.
Parry Strike/Shot – two spells that do the same, gain a +2 AC vs the next attack made against you, one is melee and one ranged.
Quill – Summons a phantom quill/pen that needs no ink.
Shadow Snag – touch a shadow and on a failed save the owner of the shadow is under the entangled condition
Smoke Image – can make a complex image our of smoke.
Summon Natures Alley, Minor – You can summon a tiny creature.

It ends with a OGL, Ads. (3 pages)

Closing thoughts. The art is black and white, ranges from fair to good. Editing and layout where both very good. There was a few spells I thought where a little silly, like Pants that just removes a targets pants. Some that was cute but of little use like Smoke Image, but these are cantrips and I liked the vast majority of them and even the ones I didn't care for was more a matter of taste than anything wrong with the spell. I really have nothing negative to say, really my biggest issues was with the Create Snow spell and how they worded it. So whats my rating? Well going to go with a 5 star. If you like cantrips you will love this and if you liked the rest of the series I recommend it.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

Well worth your time and money


Another excellent addition to the 101 spells series. The spells add great flavor to what is available to low level spell casters, and increases the opportunities in game. My group has had a blast adding these into our campaign. Not every spell is perfect, and some are either a little over or under powered for the level, although a spells power can be hard to discern without more play testing. I whole heartedly suggest that you pick this up and see how it can expand you game. All 10 were excellent, well put together, and very creative. I hope Rite thinks about making a limited edition hard cover with all 10 of these releases, with their fixes, available. I for one would pick that up, especially if I could get some signatures on it!

Need more options for low-level casters? You have to check this out.


This pdf is 24 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD and 2 pages advertisements, leaving 19 pages for 101 o-level spells. Let's dive in!

After three pages of spell-lists, we get to the spells. The spells are:

- Alter Taste (Brd, Sor/Wiz): Changes taste, but not after the spell is cast.

- Animate Tools (Brd, Clr, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Accomplishes mundane tasks with your craft or profession skill

- Antagonize Wound(Clr, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Deal 2 points of damage by touching a wound, 1 on a successful save.

- Askew Balance (Clr, Sor/Wiz): Let creature fall prone on a failed fort save. Not sure whether this shouldn't be a CMD-check on the target's side, but oh well.

- Awaken (Sor/Wiz): Wake up target as if slapped.

- Balance Weapon (Clr, Sor/Wiz): +1 enhancement bonus to weapon, does not count as magical.

- Bash (Sor/Wiz): Next melee attack gains +2 to atk and reduces miss chance by concealment 10%

- Blossom (Brd, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Lets flowers blossom.

- Bone Spurs (Sor/Wiz): Deals 1d6 damage, but creature targeted gains +1 damage to grapple, natural & unarmed attacks

- Canny Effort (Brd, Clr, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Next skill check gets +2 insight bonus

- Capture Alive (Clr, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Nonmagical melee damage is converted into nonlethal damage.

- Clean (Sor/Wiz): Clean dirt.

- Cleanse of Alcohol (Brd, Clr, Sor/Wiz): Negates effects of alcohol. I don't like this spell, especially not at this level. It could possibly ruin too many
good adventure set-ups and makes e.g. drunks in-game look like idiots.

- Cloth Armor (Brd, Sor/Wiz): Use cloth to improvise padded armor.

- Conjurer's Toolbelt (Sor/Wiz): Conjure a tool for your use.

- Countervailing (Clr, Drd): Temporarily reverses detrimental effects of other spells. E.g. -6 to Str would become +3. I think this spell is grossly
overpowered, especially for level 0, and should be disallowed.

- Dim (Brd, Clr, Drd, Sor/Wiz): Halves light strength.

- Discern Health (Clr, Drd): Detects HP, negative conditions etc. in
subsequent rounds. Due to the HP- and whether someone is drained etc.
info, I don't like this spell. I just don't like metagamey stuff like that.

fall prone.

Editing is top-notch, I didn't notice any typos. Formatting adheres to the two-column standard and the b/w-artwork is nice. I was VERY curious about this file, as I considered 0-level spells, especially designing 101, a serious challenge. While I didn't like some and hate Cleanse of Alcohol, I loved others and can say that this pdf is an EXCELLENT addition to any campaign - spellcasters at lower levels are often rather boring to play and this pdf seriously helps with this old problem. Thus my final verdicts for this installment of the 101-series will be 5 stars. Well done!

Wow, dawdle and pause could be kinda neat in certain encounters.

Having my own list of 60+ cantrips from 3.0, I'm pleased to see how few ideas got replicated. There sure seems to be a lot of potential left, even at this level of spells!

I would love to see more!


Thanks for taking the time to do a review of our product

5/5 stars more snoopy happy dances of joy!

Sounds good. I love cantrips, especially non-adventuring ones that the majority of casters in the world are going to be using.

Any chance of ever seeing a compilation - 1010 Spells, Levels 0-9 ?


If we did I would not expect it for a minimum of 6 months from now and It would only be available in print.

Any chance now that they are all out of creating a bundle to get them together? I know those are easier to setup at DriveThruRPG than here, but I still haven't picked up any... and have a tax refund coming soon. ;)

The only drawback to doing a bundle on paizo is that it does not link from the existing products to the bundle. And I will never talk about what we do on Drivethru vs. Paizo its just bad form.
