Campaign Design - Spells: Conditional Spell

Conditional Spell (from The Book of Eldritch Might)

Level: Sorcerer/Wizard 6
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: One creature or object
Duration: Until discharged
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You cast this spell as well as another spell of 3rd level or lower to be "stored". When a specific spell you name (of any level) is cat upon the subject, the stored spell releases in a preset manner. The stored spell takes effect immediately after the target spell in the same round.

You could designate a door as the subject, with an impetus spell of knock and store the web spell, to be cast in the area around the door. Or, you could identify an impetus spell of charm person that, when cast upon a cohort (as the subject), releases the stored spell dispel magic, cast on the cohort.

A target may only have one conditional spell active at a time.
