Pies here are savory not this sweet American rubbish.

Think Nescafe is releasing a pumpkin spice coffee here but Americans cant make good coffee either. Our coffee tradition is Australian.

Putting spice in coffee is kinda heresy to me.

Real pies.

Life to short for bad pie and pumpkin spice mix. Something like that belongs on scones or apple crumble.

Apparently it's similar to our mixed spice. Yeah that goes on savory stuff generally.
Is it a new fad in America? Mixed spice here is old school something your grandma would put in one of her baked desserts.

Doesn't help I don't like pumpkin, adding death salt to most things or sweet food in general.

Well...just for fun then.


Create Pumpkin Pie Spice - Pie

Level 2
Range 1"
Duration Permanent
Area of Effect : 1 pie (12 inches round, 1 inch thick)
Components: V. S, M
Casting Time: 1 turn
Saving Throw: None

Explanation/Description - This spell requires the materials of a fire, pie pan, pumpkin, and a crust of bread. The Pumpkin spice flavoring comes magically. This creates a new, hot, steaming pumpkin Pie full of the pumpkin pie spice flavoring. Whether the individuals enjoy Pumpkin Pies or not, the pie itself is highly nourishing and if cut into 8 equal slices, 1/4 of the pie, or 2 slices will be enough to fill one person for one meal.

For every additional level above 5th, the caster can also create a pint of pumpkin spice egg nog with a 60 proof alcoholic content contained in it's own mug (the mug disappates magically after 3 hours).

Big pumpkin spice fan. I've got a bottle of pumpkin spice Kahlua that came out years ago that I've been babying ever since.

Went grocery shopping over the weekend.

No regerts.

Just picked up some Pumpkin Spice Cheerios myself!

So here is a picture showing what "pumpkin pie spice" consists of, and it works for a variety of sweet and savory applicafions:

It bears repeating that these are all spices heavily used in medieval cuisine.

As for my entry, let's mix things up from D&D with Cyberpunk Red:

Pumpkin Slice:

A machete with a bright orange blade and an LED light jack-o-lantern pommel containing the fuel reservoir.

Medium melee weapon, DMG: 2d6, ROF: 2, cannot be concealed, 5,000eb
Special Property: when the wielder scores a critical hit, a burst of flame envelopes the weapon, catching the target on fire. Until the target uses an action to put out the fire, they take 2 damage directly to their HP whenever they end their turn.


Here's mine, a cursed magic item for B/X D&D.

Cursed Pumpkin Pie Spice
(Miscellaneous Magic Item, Cursed)
This magical mixture of ginger, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and nutmeg smells irresistably sweet. It's typically found in a small metal container about the size and shape of a tinderbox, with a recipe for "Unbeatable Pumpkin Pie" written on the label (the DM is encouraged to use their favorite real-world pumpkin pie recipe for this label).

When found, the box contains enough spice for 1d6 uses. This delicious mixture of spices can be used in any recipe, and the food that this spice is added to will heal 1 hit point when eaten. But! if the recipe for "Unbeatable Pumpkin Pie" is followed and the spice is added, it will create a monster: an Animated Pumpkin Pie Filling! As soon as the spices are added to the custard mix, it begins to boil and seethe, growing rapidly until it forms a 10' x 10' puddle of sticky, boiling hot, and delicious custard. It attacks immediately and fights until destroyed.

The Animated Pumpkin Pie Filling uses the stats for a Lava Ooze (Rules Cyclopedia, p.188) except as noted here: Each hit does 4d6 damage and leaves a coating of delicious, sweet-smelling Pumpkin Pie Spice that lasts for 1d4 rounds thereafter. While coated with this spice mixture, the creature doesn't take ongoing heat damage but must save vs. spells every round or become confused, forgetting that they are under attack and becoming unwilling to do anything except sniff around looking for a delicious pumpkin pie that they are convinced is nearby. Multiple hits on a single opponent will extend the duration of this curse. A Remove Curse spell cast on the ooze will destroy it instantly.
