Usability and why someone would use this spell[edit]

First of all, this spell is you can be creative enough in game could have a myriad of uses, I do see this as a bit of a flavor spell, and maybe not entirely useful in comat, but that's not the point of it. Imagine a scenario for a second, the party has just stopped outside of an encampent of Fallorian soldiers, they need to get in to the encampent undetected. They have no idea how they will do this, seeing as the only person who fits the size of the soldiers in their armor is the Orc. The wizard of the group steps up, spell at the ready and starts to color some leather armor the party gathered into the colors of the Fallorian light armor. A couple of minutes and a suit of colored armor later, and the orc is ready to go into the encampment under the guise of a Fallorian recruit. Again for a second picture a scenario, the party stopped in town, they've just arrived at a tavern, the Husky Midwife, they need some money and the people in this town are not very smart, they aren't accustomed to seeing magic in these parts, so again, the wizard steps up, and does a few party tricks, the people are stunned, while the people are in their stupor gazing at the party amazed, the halfling, Finny, goes around and starts to steal some loose change from their pockets. Voila the party has their cash, and the spell has been used affectively. Once more, and for the final time, just to really ingrain how useful this spell could be in certain situations, imagine a scenario. The party is on the run after clues in an investigation on a string of robberies pointed to them. They're running through the forests of Karak, when suddenly they come across a troll, this troll is a collector, he loves to collect various rocks and gemstones, the troll tells the party to give him rocks or he will eat them. The party ill equipped and with no rocks is grasping at straws for a solution. Then they come up with a plan, the orc, the human, and the halfling start to speak to the troll and distract him, while the wizard drifts away and gathers some rocks, knowing the troll doesn't just want regular rocks, the wizard colors them, bright vibrant colors, making once dusty brown rocks, vibrant pieces of art. The wizard goes back, gives the rocks to the troll, and they make their merry way past the troll, continuing on their journey. --Graulas (talk) 11:44, 26 February 2017 (MST)

All of your examples only require temporary colour changes, which can be done with the 5e SRD:Prestidigitation cantrip. Marasmusine (talk) 04:17, 22 July 2017 (MDT)
