Description Edit

Enlarge Person increases the perceived size of its target by 50%. The recipient gains +2 enhancement bonus to strength, a -2 size penalty to dexterity (to a minimum score of 3), and a -1 penalty on attack rolls and armor class because of the increased size. While using melee weapons there is also a +3 bonus to damage. These effects do not stack with other size-increasing spells, except shapeshifting. The strength bonus doesn't cumulate with items or buffs.


In NWN2 (v1.23), the size increase from Enlarge Person is only a cosmetical effect. The spell does not actually increase the size modifier. This means it has no effect on Disarm and Knockdown rolls, and there are no penalties from increased size. The same applies to Righteous Might.

The "size penalties" are in fact a -1 penalty to Dodge AC and a -1 penalty to enhancement AB.

3.5 Enlarge personEdit

Description: This spell causes instant growth of a humanoid creature, doubling its height and multiplying its weight by 8. This increase changes the creature’s size category to the next larger one. The target gains a +2 size bonus to Strength, a -2 size penalty to Dexterity (to a minimum of 1), and a -1 penalty on attack rolls and AC due to its increased size.

A humanoid creature whose size increases to Large has a space of 10 feet and a natural reach of 10 feet. This spell does not change the target’s speed.

If insufficient room is available for the desired growth, the creature attains the maximum possible size and may make a Strength check (using its increased Strength) to burst any enclosures in the process. If it fails, it is constrained without harm by the materials enclosing it— the spell cannot be used to crush a creature by increasing its size.

All equipment worn or carried by a creature is similarly enlarged by the spell. Melee and projectile weapons affected by this spell deal more damage. Other magical properties are not affected by this spell. Any enlarged item that leaves an enlarged creature’s possession (including a projectile or thrown weapon) instantly returns to its normal size. This means that thrown weapons deal their normal damage, and projectiles deal damage based on the size of the weapon that fired them. Magical properties of enlarged items are not increased by this spell.

Multiple magical effects that increase size do not stack,.
