Cold Alternative for Fireball

Content of the article: "Cold Alternative for Fireball"

Cold Snap 3rd Level Evocation

casting time: 1 action

range: 150 feet

components: V S M (a few drops of water and a piece of ice or glass)

duration: Instantaneous

classes: Sorcerer, Wizard

A thin stream of frozen precipitation shoots from your pointing finger to a point you choose within range and then instantly expands with the snap of air and moisture being instantly frozen. Each creature in a 20-foot-radius sphere centred on that point must make a Constitution saving throw. A target takes 8d4 cold damage and makes their next attack roll with disadvantage on a failed save, or half as much damage and ignore the penalty to their next attack roll on a successful one. Creatures reduced to 0 hit points by this damage are frozen until thawed.

at higher levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d4 for each slot level above 3rd.

*second effort at the spell is below, with changes to damage output, rider effect and duration to reasonably fit into its own niche.


This is my first shot at homebrewing a spell. Any advice or comment would be highly appreciated. Let me know what you think!

A target takes 4d4 cold damage and on a failed save, suffers the following effects until the end of your next turn; the target cannot take any reactions, has their movement speed reduced by 10 feet, and suffers a -2 penalty to AC and Dexterity saving throws. Creatures killed by this spell become frozen statues until thawed, and nonmagical liquids exposed to this spell are frozen until thawed.
