Gods exist in all sizes, great and small. Some are gods of the sun, some represent certain races, others are the keepers of fundamental forces of existence...

And sometimes you get guys like Wastri.

Domain[edit]

Wastri, The Hopping Prophet, The Hammer of False Humans (no evidence implying a connection with the Hammer of Orcs) is the Lawful Neutral Greyhawk demigod of amphibians, bigotry, and self-deception. Specifically, he is into human supremacy. That's right, he's a combination of Zarus and Kermit the Frog. Though he's not actually a frog; while he certainly looks like he fell out of the World Tree and hit every ugly branch on his way down he is more human-like than frog-like.

How he can advocate the destruction of all non-humans and still be considered Lawful Neutral is a mystery to all. Maybe because he is responsible for saving a shitload of frogs, which earned him massive Good points to keep him out of Lawful Evil. Wastri likes them because they can escape from one habitat (land) to another (water) with ease, a trait that he teaches his followers to keep to heart in the shape of having multiple refuges.

Wastri loathes the gods of all non-human races, from Lolth of the Drow to the Morndinsamman of the Dwarves and the Seldarine of the Elves, and even the little pantheons of the Halflings and Gnomes; the dislike is likely mutual. He is amicable towards other human deities (but it's likely he is less popular than Tharizdun at parties, and Tharizdun is *not* popular at parties) except Zagyg, who once held him prisoner. How he thinks about the Bullywug deity Ramenos is uncertain, although in his writeup in Oerth Journal #8, it's stated that he is worshipped by the bullywugs as "Wug'gi", suggesting a rivalry for control over the toad-men.

Dwelling[edit]

Wastri lives on the Prime Material Plane in a place called the Vast Swamp. In his palace called Sacred Polystery he hold court and breeds humans to be more frog-like and frogs to be more human-like. Why he does this is not certain: it is obviously a blasphemy upon the purity of the human form to change them like this, but it might hint at Wastri having a different agenda than having humans rule the world. The settlement in its whole is called the Temple of the Prophet: a ragtag collection of huts around the main palace. Though most of the faith is centered around the Vast Swamp parts of it also have hold in the Hool Marshes, the Cold Marshes and all the way up to Greyhawk City.

Followers[edit]

The Hopping Prophet keeps many toad-like retainers, especially the beastfolk races of Grung, Bullywugs and even a smattering of Grippli. Despite their evil nature Wastri's faith is an orderly one wherein the rights and duties of the faithful are exacted by the clerics. Humans his followers captured are warped into demi-toads, if this procedure fails they are impladed on stakes outside of Wastri's territory. His followers practice a fighting style that involves leaping into battle armed with glaives coated in the most horrible poisons. Wastri himself wields the Skewer of the Impure, a glaive-guisarme. The big man himself is not very inclined to take to battle himself: instead he hangs back with his high priest, high-ranking clerics and a pair of bigass toads. That is not to say Wastri cannot kick ass: his levels are Cleric 15/Monk 8/Assassin 7, so if push comes to shove he will fuck you up.

In Oerth Journal #8, it's stated he uses alternate guises to appeal to bands of frog-kin beyond the known reach of his mainstream faith; to the bullywugs, he is Wug'gi; to the grung, he is the female deity Rrabek, and he has likewise subverted some grippli tribes as the goddess Suujok. None of these races are aware that these are guises for Wastri, and they would be outraged to discover it.

Theory[edit]

His desire to kill everyone BUT humans suggests he is some kind of anti-Bender: one is metal and wants to kill all humans while the other is fleshy and does not want to kill humans. There is another theory about this guy: his desire for himself and his followers to become more human suggests he is not human at all: he is some sort of twisted Pinocchio figure that wants to become a real boy, doing so with perverse science and wholesome genocide. Or he's just batshit crazy.

Well, what can be said. Toad-licking is one hell of a drug.

Oerth Journal #8[edit]

In the netzine "Oerth Journal", Wastri was given a fully-detailed deity writeup for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, which is repeated below.

Wastri (WAS-tree) is a minor deity of unknown origin, and among humans is worshipped by slavers, certain monastic orders, and those who have a hatred of demihumans. It is he who preaches the ultimate superiority of mankind, at the expense of humanoids and demi-humans. In religious depictions, Wastri is typically portrayed in a manner similar to his avatar form (see below).

Although the origin of Wastri is shrouded in mystery and rumor, some things have come to light within the past decade. This information is only known to a privileged few, and was revealed by a high ranking member of the Scarlet Brotherhood. lt seems Wastri once belonged to the now infamous and secretive organization sometime in the early 6th century C.Y. Although not overly bright, Wastri lacked little in ambition and discipline, and progressed through the ranks of the monastic order to assume some noteworthy status, but certainly nothing extraordinary. This changed as of Fireseek 546 C.Y., however, when Wastri returned from an expedition into the Vast Swamp after several years absence. Standing at the gates of Rro Terlep, he stood at the head of a large contingent of bullywugs, grung, and other batrachian creatures, in addition to some humans.

Reading edicts from a thick tome of malign nature, the physically mutated Wastri preached his now familiar dogma to the Brotherhood and finished by proclaiming himself the savior and guide of the not only the Suel, but of the whole human race. He then called upon the Father of Obedience to step down as head of the Brotherhood and for all human citizens of Rro Terlep to join him or perish. The Father of Obedience realized the threat to the Brotherhood that Wastri presented and he acted quickly. Proclaiming Wastri a traitor and heretic, he sentenced him, and any who would join him, to death. A clash between the Brotherhood and the forces of Wastri ensued, and pitched battle raged in Rro Terlep and the surrounding areas for nearly a month. In the end Wastri was forced off of the Tilvanot Highlands, and he and those followers who still lived descended into the depths of the Vast Swamp to establish the temple complex known as the Sacred Polystery, which was finished a few years later.

Wastri is in the infancy of his immortal status, having ascended to full demipower status sometime in the early 570's C.Y. It is known that Wastri was one of the nine demipowers imprisoned beneath the Tower of Magic by another fellow demipower, Zagyg the Mad. Based upon what is known of this incident, it is speculated that when he was liberated through means unknown, only then did Wastri emerge as a true demipower. Before this, it is assumed that Wastri was only a powerful mortal, or at most a quasi-diety. After his release, Wastri fled back to the Vast Swamp to reorganize his followers and begin to plot revenge on Zagyg. Of course, the fact that the Mad Archmage was partially responsible for Wastri's new found power meant little to the Hammer of Demihumans; someone would pay for his outrageous imprisonment, and over the years the city that Zagyg built, the Free City of Greyhawk, has suffered in his stead.

Wastri has been active in the few decades since his emergence from the ruins of Castle Greyhawk; He has expanded his "congregation" and is worshipped by the bullywugs as Wug'gi, a bizarre frog god, who encourages the bullywugs destructive behavior; Wastri also serves as the chief diety of the monotheistic grung in the form of Rrabek, who is portrayed as a large female grung, and Suujok among the grippli, who is a small female frog-like diety. Other dieties in the grippli pantheon include an evil snake god (Beltar) and spider goddess (Lolth). It is important to note that these humanoids do not associate Wastri, the human diety, with their own dieties; this would not sit well with the grippli and the bullywugs.

Wastri has no real allies, but in the short span as a demipower he has made some powerful enemies. The heads of the demihuman pantheons all oppose Wastri, though collectively they do not consider him a serious threat to the survival of any of the demihuman races in the Flanaess; Wastri simply possesses neither the power or resources to enact his agenda of genocide on a large scale. Among the human powers, Trithereon is the most active in opposing the doings and tenets of the Hopping Prophet and encourages his clergy to actively remove the presence of the clergy of Wastri through either coercion or force. Anyone remotely associated with Zagyg is subject to death, including all the residents of the Free City of Greyhawk. It is unknown whether Zagyg reciprocates this antipathy, but sentiment among religious scholars holds that it is unlikely. Lastly, Wastri has a growing mutual antipathy with Beltar and especially Lolth. Wastri has no love of demihumans, including those of the Underdark, and has no respect for Lolth. The differences with Beltar may stem from the Suel pantheons division over Law and Chaos, and relations between the two are also not helped by the fact that both powers take affronts to themselves and their followers very personally.

Wastri's Avatar[edit]

(Monk 20, Thief 10)

Wastri can often be found roaming the Vast Swamp in and around the Sacred Polystery, hunting down any demihumans unfortunate enough to cross his path. Wastri's primary avatar form is known as the Hopping Prophet. He appears as a well built, if not oddly proportioned, bald male that has somehow mutated to become both less and more than human. He has a hunched gait, bulging eyes, and splotched skin, in addition to a plethora of warts. Wastri dresses in parti-colored clothing of gray and dull yellow, wearing no armor, relying on his speed and evasive agility instead. He is unmistakable due to his batrachian features and odd gait, a repulsive being with an odd croaking voice to match. Still, he can move quickly enough and hop for considerable distance with ease and accuracy.

The other avatar form of Wastri is that of a massive gray toad, well over 10' in length. This form has been referred to as the Gray Maw, by a fortunate soul who was lucky enough to escape after seeing it. In either form, Wastri can cast spells from any sphere, though he is highly unlikely to cast any spells while rampaging as the Gray Maw.

AC -3; MV 18 Hp 3 HP 129 THACO 8 #AT 2
DMG: 2d6 + 6 or 2d6+2
MR: 50% SZ M (6')
STR: 18 DEX: 22 CON: 19 INT: 10 WIS: 20 CHA: 2 (20 to amphibians)
Spells P: 12/12/11/10/7/5/2
Saves: PPDM 2 , RSW 6 , PP 5 , BW 8 , Sp 7

Special Att/Def: Wastri's preferred method of attack is to use Vaktra, his famous glaive-guisarme+4, a weapon that has sent more than its share of demi-humans to the nether regions. He especially enjoys catching and impaling demihumans with its long end spike. Wastri is also quite capable in unarmed combat, being the equivalent of a grand master in martial arts and wrestling.

In addition to his normal attacks and spells, Wastri can utter a croak that acts as a confusion spell upon all creatures within 40 feet who hear the sound, unless a successful save vs. Spell is made. Wastri also can cast a warts enchantment that covers the victim with huge, knobby warts unless a successful save vs. Spell is made. The warts make it difficult to grasp any weapon or other object (50% chance per round to drop the weapon or object)and the victims Charisma drops to 3. The affected individual must also save vs. Paralysis (mind affecting bonuses apply) or fall into a dejected state of hopelessness for 2-12 rounds. Finally, Wastri can cast a dampness spell over an area of one square mile, lasting for a duration of 5-60 rounds. The dweomer reduces the effective range of archery, limits visibility to 60 yards, extinguishes normal fires, and reduces the effect of magical fires by 50%.

Each of these spell-like powers can be used once per day.

Wastri can speak with any amphibian, and command them as he wishes. He is able to summon any or all of the following creatures, one per turn, once per week. The creatures appear one round after being summoned;

10-40 bullywugs
2-20 giant toads
2-8 poisonous toads
1-4 ice toads

These creatures are always the largest of their kind (maximum hp) and are fearsome in combat (+1 to hit and to damage rolls).

Under usual conditions, Wastri is accompanied by the Immaculate Image, three Greater Servants (Abbots, Fathers, or Masters), a pair of Champions, and a pair of huge toads.

Other Manifestations Wastri, like most deities in the Flanaess, keeps his direct interactions with mortals limited, and therefore his avatar is not found outside the Vast Swamp. (Indeed, it is unknown whether Wastri has ventured in avatar form outside of the Vast Swamp since his liberation in 570 C.Y.) Therefore, his priests and others are more likely to encounter his manifestations, which most often are a chorus of croaking frogs, which indicates displeasure or failure, or sometimes a small gray toad, which may lead the priest somewhere or simply vanish. The most common manifestation, though, is a glowing red glaive-guisarme in the likeness of Vaktra, which may point a certain direction and then disappear, leading the priest on. Rarely, the manifestation may move towards the weapon of the priest and merge with it; the weapon then either shatters (indicating displeasure, obviously), or begins to glow with a red enchantment, which then fades in a few rounds. Such a weapon will then be permanently under the effect of an enchanted glaive spell, as if cast by the wielder.

Wastri's Church[edit]

Clergy: Clerics (10%), Specialty Priests (45%), Crusaders (45%)
Alignment: LN, LE
Turn Undead: C: Yes ( if neutral) SP: No Cm: No
Cmnd Undead: C: Yes ( if evil) SP: No Cm: No

All clergy of Wastri receive the Religion proficiency for free. All clergy of Wastri can speak a secret language known as Wastongue, which is only understandable by other members of Wastri's priesthood.

All clergy are familiar with the use and creation of poisons; all crusaders and some higher level clergy members know how to make a special poison only used by members of the faith and their servants.

This poison is known as shukta, made from poisonous frog and grung skins, boiled at a low temperature with oils and pitch from trees endogenous to the southern swamps of Oerik. The end result is a clear sap that acts as a contact poison (onset 1 min, dmg 2-8/2-16). Each application is good for a 6 hour period, or -6 strikes with the weapon, whichever comes first. Although most priests do not use it, some clerics have no compunctions about using it, and one will most definitely find it in the possession of a crusader of Wastri.

Wastri is not well known throughout the Flanaess, and worship of Wastri is not common. It is mostly concentrated in and around the Vast Swamp, though it has supposedly spread to the Hool Marshes and possibly elsewhere, though this would most likely be in the southern regions of the Flanaess. Most places of worship are dim, dark and chilly, akin to monasteries with large developed underground complexes. Considering the history of Wastri, most of his worshipers are Suel or at least partly so, though all humans are welcome into his faith. Clergy members are known as Wastriggi, though they are also known by less affectionate names by those who do not venerate Wastri. In northern areas, Wastriggi have not exactly endeared themselves to the common populace, but they aren't considered a threat either; Something more akin to misguided cultists or fringe lunatics. There have been isolated instances where more militant Wastriggi have traveled north in campaigns of terror, but these are few and far between. On the other hand, some clergy have given a good name to themselves by acting as self appointed protectors of the human race, and striking out on forays against the likes of drow.

In the southern regions of the Flanaess, especially bordering the Azure Sea, the story is completely different. Here the presence of the Wastrian faith is more prevalent, and the clergy are better able to pursue their doctrines. The threat the Wastriggi represent is well appreciated, especially by the demihumans of the area, who view the Wastriggi as they do the Scarlet Brotherhood, just not as powerful, but far worse.

A special note should be made of the relationship between the Scarlet Brotherhood and Wastriggi. Although these two factions appear similar in nature, they are deadly enemies. Neither side has forgotten what transpired less than 50 years ago, and their geographical proximity doesn't help matters. One will find that Brotherhood members are loathe to enter the Vast Swamp unless in large numbers, and for good reason.

Specialty priests and the crusaders hold all the positions of power within the church heirarchy, and are generally considered separate branches, though relations between the two are very good, and support each other well. Clerics of Wastri are left out in the cold in this regard, so many of them are found in the more northern reaches of Wastrian worship, where they can make more of a name for themselves as adventurers.

Women are welcome in the Wastrian faith, but generally not as common as males; though there is the occasional cleric and specialty priest, most woman are crusaders, who usually have had a bad experience with demihumans in their past.

Specialty priests are clad in gray, though some have yellow stoles that denote their rank, which is (in ascending order): Hopeful (dun clad), Least Servant, Acolyte, Adept, Curate, Lesser Servant, Priest, Abbot, Father, Master (leader of a temple), and the Immaculate Image (single highest level specialty priest of Wastri). Crusaders wear yellow cloaks inscribed with runes that denote their rank, which is (in ascending order): Hunter, Slayer, High Slayer, Great Scourge, Champion, Grand Warlord, and the High Holy Master of Extinction (single highest level crusader of Wastri). Clerics are generally referred to as Brother or Sister, preceded by the title "Older" or "Younger", depending upon who is addressing them.

Dogma: Wastri is perfection. Strive to be like Wastri. Obey your superiors without question. They are closer to perfection than you, and have the wisdom and experience you lack. Instill discipline in yourself, even as others instill it in you, for only with great discipline may you achieve perfection. Respect all amphibians, for they are your brethren among animals, and hold the secrets to perfection. Learn from the toad and the frog, and emulate them; doing so you shall progress in your own self evolution to the state of perfection you seek. Humanoids are stupid, undisciplined, and inferior. They are only fit to serve humanity, but must be shown with force who are their masters, for the iron fist and the whip is all they understand. Demihumans are cunning and evil. They are jealous of humanity's destiny to rule all it purveys, and will do all in their power to thwart you and Wastri. All demihumans are to be slain on sight, and the extermination of demihumankind is to be pursued until not one lives.

The premise of Wastri is simple, if not bizarre; Humans are superior to all other sentient races. Humanoids are only fit to serve the needs of humans, and demihumans are only fit to be slain - especially dwarves, gnomes, and halflings. Amphibians, being superior to all other animals, are sacred to the faith, and are to be held in esteem.

Day-to-Day Activities: Wastriggi spend much of their time in reflective thought and concentration, in an effort to achieve perfection through discipline. All help to breed and maintain superior toads; it is rumored that some of these monsters appear remarkably human, just as some of Wastri's followers appear toad-like. Crusaders spend more time honing their martial abilities and combat tactics. They are often absent from their temples for weeks at a time, out hunting their species enemy, enemies of the faith, or monsters that might threaten the temple. Clerics journey far and wide to recruit followers and acquire wealth, items, and knowledge useable by the faith as a whole.

Holy Days/Important Ceremonies: Wastriggi have a few important holidays and festivals which they celebrate. Ceremonies honoring Wastri involve sacrifices, strange musical instruments, and croaking chants. The first is the Festival of the Blood Moon, which occurs on the 1 1th of Coldeven. Known by the faith as Velvengluud, this holiday is one in which all clergy are to set out on a great hunt, capturing demihumans and other enemies of the faith, and sacrificing them to Wastri. Of note, lately the Wastriggi in the southern Vast Swamp have been getting into violent clashes with agents and forces of the Scarlet Brotherhood, and not a few have ended up on the altar the past few years.

The 15th of Goodmonth is known to Wastriggi as Wuhdlok, or the Great Imprisonment. This marks the day in 563 C.Y. when Zagyg the Mad Archmage, imprisoned Wastri in the Tower of Power, through "trickery, deceit, and conspiracy from the powers of the universe itself", or so Wastriggi are taught. This begins a mourning period of 7 days, one for each year of imprisonment, in which all Wastriggi assume a state similar to hibernation. This is a greatly held secret, as many temples and strongholds are highly vulnerable during this time (though not defenseless!).

The 10th of Harvester is known to Wastriggi as Mahdmagleeh, or the Day of Liberation, marking the day in 570 C.Y. when Wastri was liberated from the Tower of Power, through means unknown. This is a day of great rejoicing, feasting and rest. During the evening, great choruses of frog-like chants can be heard for miles as all clergy gather to "sing" praise to Wastri.

Major Centers of Worship: Certainly the largest and most powerful temple is the complex known as the Sacred Polystery, the domain of Wastri himself, and lies deep within the Vast Swamp. Not a single living thing approaches within 10 miles of the temple without Wastri knowing about it. There are other major temples rumored to exist in the Hool Marshes and Hepmonaland, as well as ruined temple complexes in the Gnatmarsh and even as far north as the Cold Marshes.

Affiliated Orders: Due to the bizarre nature of Wastri, there are no knightly or military orders which are sponsored by, or that venerate, Wastri outside of those who are his clergy. There are the rare members of other classes who serve Wastri, or who adventure with clerics of Wastri, though; These are generally nown as referred to by the title "Cousin" by the Wastriggi.

Priestly Vestments: Priests and crusaders of Wastri are generally bald and clean shaven, regardless of sex. Priests generally wear dun or gray loose fitting robes that allow freedom of movement, and sometimes wear sandals, though most often will be seen barefooted. Crusaders are often found in armor, and wear the yellow cloaks that denote their rank. Higher level priests wear gray and yellow robes, and also wear yellow stoles during religious ceremonies and holidays. Clerics are generally found far from the major religious centers and therefore dress appropriately for the society that they happen to be in. They may dress in garments of gray and yellow during holidays, but otherwise look no different from those around them.

Adventuring Garb: The various clergy are restricted in terms of armor they can wear, but generally speaking crusaders and clerics try to get the best armor available. Crusaders always wear yellow cloaks, but clerics may generally wear whatever they desire; they usually have some yellow or gray somewhere though, but otherwise are not noticeably different from clerics of any other faith.

Wastriggi Priests[edit]

Crusaders (Hunters/Slayers)

Requirements: As Crusader
Prime Req.: As Crusader
Alignment: LE
Weapons: Any
Armor: Any
Major Spheres: All, Combat, Guardian, Healing, Law, Wards
Minor Spheres: Protection, Necromantic
Magical Items: As Crusader
Req. Prof: None
Bonus Prof: Tracking

Hunter/Slayers are Crusaders with the following additions;

• At 1st level, Hunter/Slayers can communicate with all amphibians.

• At 1st level, the crusaders are known as Hunters. Before progressing to 2nd level, a Hunter must choose a demihuman race as his or her species enemy; this is the same in all respects as a ranger's species enemy. The Hunter is now known as an Elfhunter, Dwarfhunter, etc., depending on his species enemy. The Hunter may not progress to 3rd level without killing a member of his or her species enemy, upon which he or she gains the title of Slayer, preceeded by his species enemy (Elfslayer, etc.)

• Although Hunter/Slayers can wear any armor and use any weapon, there are definite preferences in both areas. Certainly all crusaders are expected to learn the glaive-guisarme. As far as armor goes, since crusaders are, by and large, found slogging through hot swampy areas on hunts, it would be very rare to see a crusader in anything heavier than chainmail. If they are in heavier armor, they are either defending a temple or en route to attack a fortified enemy stronghold (such as a dwarven fortress.)

Specialty Priests (Batrachs)

Requirements: Dexterity 15, Constitution 12, Wisdom 9
Prime Req.: Dexterity, Wisdom
Alignment: LN
Weapons: All Hammers, Short Bow, Whip, Glaive-Guisarme, Blowgun
Armor: None
Major Spheres: All, Animal, Charm, Elemental Earth,
Elemental Water, Plant, Summoning
Minor Spheres: Combat, Divination, Healing, Necromantic
Magical Items: As Druid
Req. Prof: Swimming
Bonus Prof: Survival (Swamps)

• Batrachs must be human.

• Batrachs, and all clergy of Wastri, may use a Horn of the Vast Swamp with no adverse effect.

• Although not allowed to wear armor, Batrachs are similar to monks in their ability to avoid blows through misdirection and positioning. To reflect this, their base AC improves by 1 point at every even level to a maximum base AC of 2 at 14th level. Their progression can also be observed in a strange hunched gait, that becomes more pronounced as Batrachs advance in level. Also similar to monks, Batrachs begin play as specialists in either martial arts or wrestling at 1st level, and progress in their chosen skill a a monk; at 5th level, they are considered a master, at 9th level, a high master, and at 13th level a grand master.

• At 1st level, Batrachs can communicate with all amphibians.

• Beginning at 2nd level, Batrachs can blend into the background as if wearing a ring of chameleon power, being effectively invisible at 10%/lvl, up to a maximum of 90% at 9th. This power takes a round to use and the priest must be still and silent for this power to be effective.

• At 3rd level, Batrachs can pass without trace as a druid through swamps and marshes.

• At 7th level, Batrachs can shapechange as a druid into any batrachian creature, including giant or monstrous variants (such as a fire toad), 2x/day.

• At 10th level, Batrachs can cast confusion (F7) lx/day.

Wastrian Spells[edit]

Leap of Faith (Alteration)
Sphere: Combat
Level: 1
Range: Touch
Components: V,S,M
Duration: 1 rd./level
Casting Time: 3
Area of Effect: Creature touched
Saving Throw: None

Similar to the 1st level wizard spell jump, this spell empowers the individual touched when the spell is cast to leap twice per round for the duration of the spell. Leaps can be up to 20 feet forward or straight up, but not backward; horizontal leaps have a minimum arc of about 2 feet for every ten feet traveled, but can have an arc as high as 45 degrees; indeed this is often the case as priests of Wastri are taught a fighting style utilizing this spell consisting of a leap-strike-leap away. When utilizing this style, the priest adds +3 to his initiative and attack and damage rolls are at +1; the priest then may leap away from the defender 3 segments after executing his attack.

The material component for this spell is a frog or toad leg, which is consumed by the priest.

Wartskin (Alteration)

Sphere: Protection, Animal
Level: 2
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M
Duration: 2rds. + 1 rd./level
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: 1 creature
Saving Throw: None

A variant of the 2nd level priest spell barkskin, the recipient of this spell develops a rough, knobby covering over his body similar to a toad. This lowers the base AC of the recipient by 2 plus 1 point for every 3 levels of the caster. In addition, the recipient receives a +2 to saves versus attack forms which are physical in nature. This spell does not function with armor or any other form of magical protection.

The material components of this spell are the caster's holy symbol and a piece of skin from a toad.

Enchanted Glaive (Alteration)

Sphere: Combat
Level: 3
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M
Duration: 1 rd./level
Casting Time: 1 rnd
Area of Effect: Caster's weapon
Saving Throw: None

This spell enables the caster to temporarily enchant a normal glaive guisarme (though there are rumors that other non-magical weapons may be enchanted) into the equivalent of a magical weapon with a + 1 bonus for every five levels of the caster. The enchantment is obvious, as it causes the blade to glow with a red radiance, shedding light equivalent to a torch. An additional bonus is the fact that due to Wastri's blessing, the enchanted glaive inflicts double damage dice upon all demihumans.

The material component of this spell is a non-magical glaive, the caster's holy symbol, and a vial containing a mixture of toad poison, the blood of a demihuman, and the spit of the priest, which is then applied to the blade.

Wugla (Summon Holy Servants) (Conjuration/Summoning)

Sphere: Summoning
Level: 3
Range: Special
Components: V, S, M
Duration: 2 rds ./level
Casting Time: 6
Area of Effect: 15 yd radius
Saving Throw: None

By means of this spell the caster conjures ld6 gray-skinned [[bullywug]s which appear anywhere within the spells area of effect, as desired by the caster. They attack the caster's opponents to the best of their ability until he commands that the attacks cease, the spell duration expires, or the monsters are slain. These creatures do not check morale and vanish when the spell duration expires or when they are slain. If no opponents exist to fight, the summoned creatures can perform other duties if they are able.

The material components for this spell are the caster's holy symbol and a crushed gemstone worth at least 50 gp.

Cander Wugla (Improved Summoning of Holy Servants) (Conjuration/Summoning)

By means of this spell the caster conjures 2d4 gray-skinned bullywugs and ld3 gray giant poison toads which appear anywhere within the spells area of effect, as desired by the caster. They attack the caster's opponents to the best of their ability until he commands that the attacks cease, the spell duration expires, or the monsters are slain.

This aptly named and insidious spell is known to few outside of the faith of Wastri, and is useable only by the highest-level priests of that faith. If an individual is touched by this spell and fails his saving throw vs. spells (mind-affecting bonuses apply); he is immediately ensorcelled and charmed; He acts as if he were under a charm person spell (Wl) with regard to the caster. As if this were not bad enough, the affected individual also is afflicted with a delusional insanity that he is a toad, a belief which slowly develops over the course of the next six months.

The material components of this spell are the caster's holy symbol and a vial containing portions of a potion of delusion, a philter of love, elixir of madness, toad blood, and holy water, which is broken on the victim after casting.
