Beard of Elminster

Magic User Spell, Level 1

Beard of Elminster
Range: 0
Duration: 4d6 turns
Effect: the magic user only

Upon casting this spell, the magic user grows a full, flowing beard that exudes confidence and masculinity. For the duration of the spell, the magic user is considered to have a Charisma of 18 (and thus a +3 bonus to Reaction Rolls) in his dealings with lusty wenches. 

The material component for this spell is a pinch of pipe tobacco, which is smoked for one turn while the beard grows in. 

As is often true of such potent dweomers, the casting of this spell is not without risk. Each time it is cast, there is a 1 in 6 chance that the spell will draw the attention of Elminster himself. If this happens, Elminster appears, chides the caster, and takes the pipe tobacco for his own use. 

And probably the lusty wenches, too.
