Unfortunate Origami

5th-level transmutation

Classes: bard, sorcerer, wizard

Casting Time:1 action

Range:60 feet

Components:V, S, M (a piece of folded paper)


Any item you touch is transformed into a delicate facsimile of itself crafted of folded paper. A paper item has its weight reduced to 25% normal, its hardness reduced to 0, and its hit points reduced to 10% of the normal amount (or 2 hit points per inch for solid barriers). If the item is held by another creature, that creature may attempt a Constitution saving throw to negate the effect. An origami weapon deals only 1 point of damage (plus any magical bonuses it possesses) on a successful hit, and the weapon itself takes 1d6 points of damage each time it strikes an opponent. Origami armor and shields provide no bonus to AC, though if they are magical their bonuses still apply. Origami items retain their magical properties but are very fragile and susceptible to damage from being worn or wielded, forcing their wearer or wielder to succeed on a Constitution saving throw at the end of each day to avoid the item’s destruction. Items transformed into paper by unfortunate origami can be restored to normal with remove curse or wish.
