Ice Ship

4th-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S, M (a glass model of a ship worth 100 gp)

Duration: 8 hours

You create a small ship made of ice, which can take the form of a sailing ship to travel on water or a skate-runner made to run across vast stretches of ice.

  • Ice Cruiser: This broad-hulled single-masted roundship is low and stable in the water. It can propel itself magically through the water, even against the wind, with a speed of 30 feet (about 3 miles per hour). If moving with the wind, its sail increases its speed to 60 feet. An ice cruiser has 10 hit points per level of the caster. An ice cruiser can comfortably carry up to three Medium creatures per level of the caster. A single Large creature takes up the space of three Medium creatures, and a Huge creature the space of three Large creatures.
  • Ice Skimmer: This narrow-hulled ship glides across the ice on sharp runners, driven by its sail with maximum speed of 180 ft. when running with the wind. It cannot move against the wind, but can move perpendicular to wind direction at up to 90 ft. per round. An ice skimmer has 5 hit points per level of the caster. An ice skimmer can carry one Medium or smaller creature per level of the caster, but Large and larger creatures cannot fit into its narrow hull.

An ice ship is resistant to all types of damage, except fire, which it is vulnerable to. An ice ship of either type begins to melt slowly in temperatures above freezing, taking 1d12 points of damage each hour. This damage cannot be reduced. If reduced to 0 hit points or dispelled, an ice ship slows to half speed as it cracks and splinters to pieces over the course of 1d4 rounds and then collapses completely.
