Roll 3d8 and refer to the Eight Basic Energies table.

After rolling, assign each die to one of the following.

  • Energy Type: You gain vulnerability to the energy type that matches the die’s result for the duration of the spell. You take half again as much damage (+50%) from that energy type, regardless of whether you successfully saved against the damaging spell or effect.
  • Magic School: For the spell’s duration, you cast all spells from the school that matches the die’s result at +1 caster level.
  • d20 Roll Type: You receive a +2 luck bonus on the d20 roll that matches the die’s result for the duration of the spell.

The Path of Numbers

The Path of Numbers is a system of numerology that describes eight basic energies. Any of these types of energy can interact at any time, producing 64 possible combinations. It is believed that those 64 combinations are sufficient to describe the basis of every interaction in the cosmos. No matter the plane, creature, or time in question, every event in the multiverse is based on one of those 64 templates. In short, the Path of Numbers is a periodic table of energetic elements.
