Updated Spells for House Rules

School conjuration (teleportation); Level sorcerer/wizard 5
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V
Range personal and touch
Target you and touched objects or other touched willing creatures
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw none and Will negates (object); Spell Resistance no and yes (object)

This spell instantly transports you to a designated destination, which may be as distant as 100 miles per caster level. Interplanar travel is not possible. You can bring along objects as long as their weight doesn't exceed your maximum load. You may also bring one additional willing Medium or smaller creature (carrying gear or objects up to its maximum load) or its equivalent per three caster levels. A Large creature counts as two Medium creatures, a Huge creature counts as four Medium creatures, and so forth. All creatures to be transported must be in contact with one another, and at least one of those creatures must be in contact with you. As with all spells where the range is personal and the target is you, you need not make a saving throw, nor is spell resistance applicable to you. Only objects held or in use (attended) by another person receive saving throws and spell resistance. Areas of strong physical or magical energy may make teleportation more hazardous or even impossible.

*Removed the chances of arriving on or off target and familiarity and replaced them with the following rules: Teleportation only works when you have attuned to a place for 24 hours. Places you have never been to, you may not teleport to. Once you have arrived at a place and spend at least 24 hours uninterrupted there, you may then teleport to and from that location with out error.

School conjuration (teleportation); Level sorcerer/wizard 7

This spell functions like teleport, except that there is no range limit and there is no chance you arrive off target. In addition, you need not have seen the destination, but in that case you must have at least a reliable description of the place to which you are teleporting. If you attempt to teleport with insufficient information (or with misleading information), you disappear and simply reappear in your original location. Interplanar travel is not possible. In edition you need only spend 8 hours to attune to a specific location in order to teleport there.

*This now makes you journey to find unique and far off places to which you want to frequent. The journey is still in tact and the adventure will not suffer. Once a place is reached you now have a quick escape back to town to resurrect friends, gather supplies and then can return immediately and continue your adventure. Furthermore you can end your adventure quickly by going back to your city or home place when you are done.

**The attuning aspect allows you to now not just teleport to a location but to a specific place. You may wish to arrive inside a particular cave near by a place of danger or inside a specific house in a specific district. Warding against teleporting is a magic users main line of defense. A warded house or dungeon will not allow attuning to take and can negate the ability to move in and out of a place quickly.


School abjuration; Level cleric 1, druid 1, paladin 1, ranger 1, sorcerer/wizard 1
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range touch
Target creature touched

*Resurrection is back (10,000gp diamond to bring back to life with missing parts)

*True Resurrection is back (25,000gp diamond to bring back to life, fully restored to the point they were when the died.)

*Spell Casting Services: (Caster Level x Spell Level x 10gp) *Anything putting this cost above 3000gp is not available. Exception is to pay this price and provide the NPC with the material diamond or cost needed to cast the spell. 

Q: What if I do not have any of this money and my party member is dead?
A: If this happens and no NPC's or church groups are friendly towards you and would offer this service for free on them, then you must commonly complete a quest or task for the NPC or church to re-pay for the PC they bring back to life.

To get more enjoyment from the skill instead of punishing you with no hits on something that was meant to be fun.
