I have been working on a whole host of spell effects for you all. Here is the first and often overlooked (maybe forgotten) Smoke Ladder.
It was a spell back in 3.5 and I am not sure if it has had a conversion or not, so here you go:
Level: Wizard 1
Components: V, S, AF,
Casting Time: 1 round
Effect: A ladder of smoke
Duration: 1 min./level (D)
You create a misty ladder up to 10 feet long per caster level, shaped from the smoke given off by a fire as you cast the spell. A smoke ladder weighs virtually nothing and can be easily handled at any length. Always steady and rigid, the ladder needs no support or object to lean against, but can simply be placed in the desired position and climbed.
By casting the spell again on an existing smoke ladder before it dissipates, you can reset its duration.
