Re: Bald is Beautiful

This isn't the form of baldness that I personally consider beautiful, Jake.

Also, I have my hair growing out again so I can donate it to Locks of Love again. So I won't be able to rock the bald look until I get a 10" braid to donate, which will be at least another year.

Can this spell be upgraded so it's actually worth casting?

I think currently is gives a minor hit/dam reduction, maybe -3 each.

What's wrong with giving it that and making it _actually_ blind the mob as well?
Or at least have a better chance of making mobs miss their bash and trip attempts?
