That new eyes spell

There's a 3rd level spell in Ultimate Magic that has you grow eyes all over your body. This results in All Around Sight, which, predictably, makes you immune to flanking.

Ok. BUT YOU ARE COATED IN EYES

It also lasts an hour per level. I suspect high level adventurers won't leave the house without at least an uncountable number of eyes. And seriously, what if you have to take a leak? Do you have eyes near your junk? I mean, you wouldn't want to watch that right? Do the eyes at least have lids? You don't have any disadvantage caused by having a million eyes, such as gaze attack vulnerability. On that note, can you just like, close all your FRONT eyes to be immune to a gaze attack?

Are there any social penalties to running around with sixteen levels of eyes sticking out of your body? I mean, elbow-eyes can't be thought of well at court, can it? And ladies, watch out for the high level lecherous mages wearing sandals, especially if they are standing close to you.

Not to mention the disorientation from suddenly being able to see in more directions than before...


lol this made my day


I know right? I read the spell's fluff and thought it would have been far more hilarious mechanically as a permanent curse.

By the way I love this spell, don't change a thing.


What happens to your depth perception? O_o

You discover the fifth dimension.

Well, two eyes allow us to have depth perception in the third dimension, so I suppose a bajillion eyes will allow the character to perceive into the far realm. I mean, you already look like you belong there with the eyes all over your body.

And the far realm stares back

And then you start taking discoveries like tumor familiar, tentacle, insectile wings, the vestigial twin chain...even though you wanted to take other, less alien discoveries. By this point, however, it is too late.

All because you didn't want to be flanked, because you were paranoid of the idea of enemies conspiring against you and surrounding you so that they could gain an edge over you in combat. Thats when you realize that maybe, maybe the conspiracies that led to you casting this spell all the time weren't rational. Maybe...maybe you were mad before all of this. Perhaps you were never sane to begin with.

You're the only sane person and all the crazies have to die.

This spell should give me a bonus to intimidate. BECAUSE I AM COATED IN EYES

My favourite part is that it's not dismissible. So if people don't like you staring at them, consider a mask, trenchcoat, and fedora.

Oh god, imagine the Stern Gaze(Ex) of an inquisitor WHO IS NOTHING BUT EYEBALLS EVERYWHERE.


Does it multiply the chance of getting grit or an eyelash stuck in your eye by several hundred?

Of course, you were right all along, the paranoia your companions diagnosed you with is a part of the conspiracy. Now that you have eternal potion, you can have the eyes on all time, even when you sleep(especially when you sleep) The Azlanti thought that the aboleths were mad, and look where that got them. All of these "two eyes," as you have grown to call them, cannot think rationally. They lack your vision. They act with no foresight. And they cannot see eye to eye with you, they are woefully inadequate in that department.


I am just glad they reverse engineered the impotence of rogue sneak attack by adding an hour/level lasting spell, is it a personal effect or target creature, because this makes a good potion to screw rogues over even better than before ;)


What happens if yr mage needs to wear glasses?? u would have to carry around alot of pairs....:)

It should be even easier to sneak attack you, with that many eyes to poke!

Ow. :(

Patience. There are a lot of "two eyes." We must bide out time. The revolution will come when they least expect it.

Our plans to introduce the extract to the water supply are moving along at a steady pace. The plans may be realized by 20th level or so. They thought us mad...but they'll see. They'll all see, see all over their bodies.

I could totally see a gunslinger getting grit from having thousands of squinty Clint Eastwood eyes.
