A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, with disadvantage if the brass greatwyrm is within line of sight, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the brass greatwyrm’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Mythic Actions

If the greatwyrm’s Draconic Awakening trait has activated in the last hour, it can use the options below as legendary actions.

Bite. The greatwyrm makes one Bite attack.

Shattering Roar (Costs 2 actions). The greatwyrm unleashes a magical roar. Each creature in a 20-meters-radius sphere centered on the greatwyrm must make a Difficulty 26 Fortitude saving throw, taking 13 (2d12) concussion damage and be incapacitated until the end of its next turn, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Lair actions

On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), the brass greatwyrm takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; the same effect can’t be used two rounds in a row:

  • A strong wind blows around the dragon. Each creature within 10 meters of the dragon must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Reflex saving throw or be pushed 3 meters away from the dragon and knocked prone. Gases and vapors are dispersed by the wind, and unprotected flames are extinguished. Protected flames; such as lanterns, have a 50 percent chance of being extinguished.

  • A cloud of sand swirls about in a 5-meter radius sphere centered on a point the dragon can see within 20 meters of it. The cloud spreads around corners. Each creature in it must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Fortitude saving throw or be blinded for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

  • Animate Statues. The dragon chooses up to three statues in the lair that it can see. Each of these statues briefly animates and attacks one creature within 1 meter of it, with a +7 bonus to hit and dealing 10 (3d6) bludgeoning damage on a hit.

  • Blast of Wind. A mighty wind sweeps through the lair in a direction of the dragon’s choice, blowing along a line 10 meters wide and 30 meters long. Each creature in that area except the dragon must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Reflex saving throw or be pushed 3 meters in the wind’s direction and be knocked prone. Gases and vapors are dispersed by the wind, and unprotected flames are extinguished. Protected flames, such as lanterns, have a 50 percent chance of being extinguished. If the dragon is within the area of the wind, it can choose to be pushed 3 meters in the wind’s direction, and the wind can’t knock the dragon prone.

  • Obscuring Sand. Dust and sand fill the air within 20 meters of the dragon, making the area lightly obscured until initiative count 20 on the next round.

Regional effects

The region containing the brass greatwyrm’s lair is warped by the brass greatwyrm’s magic, which creates one or more of the following effects:

  • Tracks appear in the sand within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair. The tracks lead to safe shelters and hidden water sources, while also leading away from areas that the dragon prefers to remain undisturbed.

  • Images of Large or smaller creatures haunt the desert sands within 2 kilometers of the dragon’s lair. These illusions move and appear real, although they can do no harm. A creature that examines an image from a distance can tell it’s an illusion with a successful Difficulty 26 Perception check. Any physical interaction with an image reveals it to be an illusion, because objects pass through it.

  • Whenever a creature with an Intelligence of −4 or higher comes within 5 meters of a water source within 2 kilometers of the dragon’s lair, the dragon becomes aware of the creature’s presence and location.

  • Cloud Companion. A small, wispy cloud follows non-evil creatures as they journey within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair. It changes direction as the creatures do, remaining interposed between them and the direct glare of the sun, and grants them advantage on saving throws to resist the effects of extreme heat.

  • Talkative Denizens. Creatures within 1 kilometer of the dragon’s lair find pleasure in hearing the sound of their own voices. The air is filled with a deafening chorus of birds and small animals, and sapient creatures talk extensively.

If the dragon dies, the tracks fade in 1d10 days, but the other effects fade immediately.

As an action, you seize the air and compel it to create one of the following effects at a point you can see within 5 meters:

  • One Medium or smaller creature that must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be pushed 2 meters away from you.
  • You create a small blast of air that reduces any burning condition by 1 on a creature or object and is capable of moving one object that is neither held nor carried and that weighs no more than 2 kilos. The object is pushed 2 meters away from you. It isn’t pushed with enough force to cause damage.
  • You create a harmless sensory effect using air, such as causing leaves to rustle, wind to slam shutters closed, or your clothing to ripple in a breeze.
At higher levels

You can affect a creature of a larger size, the target is pushed an additional 1 meter, and the object’s maximum weight increases when you reach 9th level (Large or smaller; 3 meters; 5 kilos) and 17th level (Huge or smaller; 4 meters; 7 kilos).

As an action, you choose a portion of dirt or sand that you can see within 5 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You manipulate it in one of the following ways:

  • If you target an area of loose earth or sand, you can hurl it. Make a ranged spell attack against a creature within 5 meters. On a hit, the target takes 1d8 bludgeoning damage. On a miss by 4 or less, the target takes half as much damage.
  • If you target an area of loose earth or sand, you can instantaneously excavate it, move it along the ground, and deposit it up to 1 meter away. This movement doesn’t involve enough force to cause damage. This can be used to create a small foxhole with half cover.
  • You cause shapes, colors, or both to appear on the dirt or sand, spelling out words, creating images, or shaping patterns. The changes last for 1 hour.
  • If the dirt or sand you target is on the ground, you cause it to become difficult terrain. Alternatively, you can cause the ground to become normal terrain if it is already difficult terrain. This change lasts for 1 hour.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have no more than two of its non-instantaneous effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 9th level (2d8) and 17th level (3d8).

At higher levels

You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

If the roll already has disadvantage, you cannot apply another instance of disadvantage and you must use this before the roll to cancel out any disadvantage.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to trigger the spell when a creature that you can see within 10 meters is attacked. The attacked creature gains the benefits instead.

As an action, you speak a one-word command to a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The target must succeed on a Will saving throw or follow the command. The spell has no effect if the target is undead, if it doesn’t understand your language, or if your command is directly harmful to it.

Some typical commands and their effects follow. You might issue a command other than one described here. If you do so, the GM determines how the target behaves. If the target can’t follow your command, the spell ends.

Approach. On its turn, the creature must use its speed to move toward you by the shortest and most direct route, and can’t willingly move away from you on during its turn.

Drop. The creature immediately drops whatever it is holding at its feet.

When a creature tries to interact with an object in a space occupied by a hostile creature it must use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness (its choice) check contested by the hostile creature’s Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice). If the creature attempting to interact with the object wins the contest, it can interact with the object.

Flee. On its turn, the creature must use its speed to move away from you by the shortest and most direct route, and can’t willingly move toward you on during its turn.

Grovel. The creature immediately falls prone.

  • You can target one additional creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to change the duration to 1 minute/mana, concentration. For the duration, you can make an additional command on each of your turns.

On a failure, it takes 5d4 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 2 meters in a straight line, either clockwise or counterclockwise if it is Medium or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 4 meters in a straight line, either clockwise or counterclockwise if it is Medium or smaller.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) keeps fog, smoke, and other gases at bay. Any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1. Loose, lightweight materials brought into the whirlwind fly upward. Arrows, bolts, and other ordinary projectiles launched at targets behind the whirlwind are deflected upward and automatically miss. (Boulders hurled by giants or siege engines, and similar projectiles, are unaffected.)

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 3d4, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the cyclone swirls continuously. The duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the winds swirl around you in an aura shaped as a sphere. Until the spell ends, the aura moves with you, centered on you.

    Whenever a creature enters the area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it must make the Reflex saving throw.

    You can change the direction of the cyclone as an action.

    The damage is reduced to 3d4 and additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 1d4 for every two additional mana expended, instead of the normal increase.

As an action, you drain the moisture from a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw, which it does with disadvantage if it is a plant creature, a magical plant, or a creature made of water such as a water elemental. If the creature has no moisture in its body, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 5d6 necrotic damage and is exhausted 1 until it rehydrates. This exhaustion does not accumulate with other forms of exhaustion due to dehydration.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is exhausted 2 until it rehydrates. This exhaustion does not accumulate with other forms of exhaustion due to dehydration.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 6d6 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you attempt to awaken the worst fears in a creature that is not a construct or an undead that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must succeed on a Will saving throw or become frightened of you for the duration.

While frightened by this spell, the creature must move as far as its speed allows away from you by the safest available route at the start of each of its turns, unless there is nowhere to move. If the creature ends its turn in a location where it doesn’t have line of sight to you, the creature can can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

You can target two additional creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

5 minutes/mana

As an action, choose up to five willing creatures within 10 meters. A creature’s rate of descent while falling slows to 10 meters per round until the spell ends. If the creature lands before the spell ends, it takes no falling damage and can land on its feet.

Feather Fell

1
1 minute/mana

As a reaction, which you use when you or a creature within 10 meters of you falls, choose up to two willing falling creatures within 10 meters.

Augment

You can target three additional creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, you create a sphere twice as big as normal of fog centered on a point within 20 meters. The sphere spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. It lasts for the duration or until a wind of moderate or greater speed (at least 15 kilometers per hour) disperses it. Creatures in the are have advantage on saving throws against the burning condition.

3 hours/mana

As an action, you touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and a current of air surrounds it until the spell ends, redirecting attacks away from its body. The target’s Defense becomes 13 + half its Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + its Dexterity (max 4). The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell on your turn (no action required).

As an action, you unleash a strong gust of wind. Each creature in a cone or line must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d8 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 2 meters away from you following the direction of the cone or line if it is Medium or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 4 meters away from you following the direction of the cone or line if it is Medium or smaller.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The gust disperses gas or vapor, and it extinguishes candles, torches, and similar unprotected flames in the area. It causes protected flames, such as those of lanterns, to dance wildly and has a 50 percent chance to extinguish them. Additionally, any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1.

Any Medium or smaller creature in the area moves at half speed when it moves closer to the spell’s origin.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

1 hour/mana

As an action, you can hover off the ground for the duration. You can still move as normal, though you are suspended 2 centimeters above any solid surface surface. While hovering you gain the following benefits:

  • You don’t leave footprints.
  • You ignore difficult terrains and ground-based hazards like slippery ice, muddy terrain, quicksand, the grease spell, and caltrops.
  • You have advantage on Stealth checks to move silently.

This effect ends if you are incapacitated.

Augment

You can target two additional willing creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them and must remain within 5 meters of you or they stop hovering.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you raise your hands to the sky as you rise vertically, up to 5 meters, and remain suspended there for the duration.

You can move only by pushing or pulling against a fixed object or surface within reach (such as a wall or a ceiling), which allows you to move as if you were climbing. Once on your turn, you can change your altitude by up to 5 meters in either direction.

If you are still aloft when the effect ends, you descend 10 meters per round for 1 minute until you lands, which you do safely. If you can’t land after 1 minute, you fall the remaining distance.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can target one additional willing creature or object within 10 meters for each additional mana expended. The creatures and objects must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them. The spell can levitate a Medium or smaller creature or objects that weighs up to 150 kilos. Once on your turn, you can change the altitude of a target within 10 meters by up to 5 meters in either direction. You can affect a creature of a larger size and an object that weighs 150 kilos more for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to target a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must succeed on a Fortitude save or it is levitated, up to 5 meters, and remains suspended there for the duration. The spell can levitate a Medium or smaller creature. Once on your turn, you can change the altitude of a target within 10 meters by up to 5 meters in either direction. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. You can affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

  • Fly. You can expend 1 additional mana and touch a willing creature so the creature gains a flying speed of 10 meters for the duration.

(ritual)

As an action, you sense the direction of water. You learn the direction and distance to the closest substantial body of water within 10 kilometers, if any are present.

As a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack that you can see, you let the blow pass right through you. You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical weapon attacks until the start of your next turn, including against the triggering attack.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to trigger the spell when a creature that you can see within 10 meters is attacked. The attacked creature gains the benefits instead.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, you create a sphere twice as big as normal of sand centered on a point within 20 meters. The sphere spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. It lasts for the duration or until a wind of moderate or greater speed (at least 15 kilometers per hour) disperses it.

Augment

Choking Sands. You can expend 1 additional mana and cast this spell as two actions to cause the sands to fill the lungs of creatures within it. The sphere is now sized based on the mana expended and the duration changes to 5 minutes/mana.

Each creature that is completely within the cloud at the start of its turn must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, the creature spends its actions that turn coughing up the sand in its lungs. Creatures that don’t need to breathe automatically succeed on this saving throw.

(ritual); 1 hour/mana

As an action, a creature that you can see within 5 meters is not hindered by difficult terrain made of sand.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the creature can move across any sandy surface—such as loose sand or quicksand—as if it were harmless solid ground.

    If you target a creature submerged in sand, the spell carries the target to the surface of the sand at a rate of 10 meters per turn.

As an action, you hold your hands outstretched as sand shoots forth. Each creature in a cone or line must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 slashing damage and is blinded until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.

1 minute/mana

As an action, a thin layer of slipsand covers the ground in a sphere twice as big as normal centered on a point within 10 meters and turns it into difficult terrain for the duration.

When the slipsand appears, each creature standing in its area must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall prone. A creature that enters the area or ends its turn there must also succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall prone.

As an action, you pull the breath from a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature doesn’t breathe, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it loses 2d10 health and is deafened, can’t speak, and can’t use breath weapons until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it loses twice as much health.

On a success, it loses half as much health.

On a critical success, it loses no health.

Augment

You can increase the health lost by 3d10 for each additional mana expended.

3 hours/mana

As an action, objects that you carry are buoyed by gusts of wind, gravitational forces, or telekinetic energy as your carrying capacity doubles.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to target a willing creature you touch.

As an action, gusts of wind lift a Medium or smaller creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters into the air as it must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature can willingly fail this save.

On a failure, it is lifted up to 6 meters into the air. It falls unless it has some means to stay aloft.

Augment

You can affect a creature of a larger size and increase the lifted distance by 7 meters for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, wind whirls around a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. It gains one of the following benefits for the duration:

  • It gains a +2 bonus to Defense.
  • Ranged weapon attacks made against it have disadvantage on the attack roll.
  • It had advantage on saving throws against the burning condition.
Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana to give both benefits to the target.

  • You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended, though the spell then must be cast as two actions. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As an action, you send a short message of twenty-five words or less to a creature with which you are familiar within 10 kilometers. If the creature is not within 10 kilometers the message is not received.

The creature hears the message whispered by the wind, recognizes you as the sender if it knows you, and can answer in a like manner immediately.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can send an additional twenty-five words for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so you can send the message across any distance.

Prerequisites: Aarakocra

5 minutes/mana

As part of your move, as long as you aren’t encumbered by weight, you can fly into the air with a flying speed equal to your walking speed for the duration.

As an action, winds lift you into the air, allowing you to fly up to 5 meters without provoking opportunity attacks. If you move at least 3 meters straight toward a creature, make a weapon attack against it.

On a hit, add 2d6 + your spellcasting ability to the attack’s damage roll.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, add half as much damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 4d6 for each additional mana expended.

(ritual); 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you swirl your hand in a circular motion to create a bubble of air around the head of a willing creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The air allows the creature to breathe and it continuously renews itself.

Augment

You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you call forth an air elemental which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The elemental is an air elemental companion, using 2 resources. The creature has no mana or stamina dice, but you can infuse it with mana, psi, or stamina dice by expending mana up to your mana limit or psi up to double your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the elemental gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The elemental is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to call forth another elemental.

  • Invisible Stalker. You can expend 2 additional mana to summon an invisible stalker instead of an air elemental.

    An invisible stalker is an air elemental that has been summoned from its native plane and transformed by powerful magic. Its sole purpose is to hunt down creatures and retrieve objects for its summoner. When it is defeated or the magic that binds it expires, an invisible stalker vanishes in a gust of wind.

    Directed Hunter. When an invisible stalker is created, it stays at its summoner’s side until it is given a task to perform. If an assignment doesn’t involve hunting down and slaying a specific creature or recovering an object, the magic that created the invisible stalker ends and the elemental is released. Otherwise, it completes the task, then returns to its summoner for more commands, forced to serve until the magic that binds it expires. If its summoner dies in the interim, the invisible stalker vanishes after completing its task. An invisible stalker is an unwilling servant at best. It resents any undertaking assigned to it. A mission that requires significant time might drive the invisible stalker to pervert the intent of a command unless it is worded carefully.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you call forth a sand elemental which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The elemental is a sand elemental companion, using 2 resources. The creature has no mana or stamina dice, but you can infuse it with mana, psi, or stamina dice by expending mana up to your mana limit or psi up to double your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the elemental gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The elemental is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to call forth another elemental.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you take control of the air in a 10-meter cube that you can see within 100 meters. Choose one of the following effects when you cast the spell. The effect lasts for the duration, unless you use an action on a later turn to switch to a different effect. You can also use an action to temporarily halt the effect, to restart one you’ve halted, or move the cube up to 5 meters within 100 meters.

Gusts. A wind picks up within the cube, continually blowing in a horizontal direction that you choose. You choose the intensity of the wind: calm, moderate, or strong. If the wind is moderate or strong, ranged weapon attacks that pass through it or that are made against targets within the cube have disadvantage on their attack rolls and any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1. If the wind is strong, any creature moving against the wind’s speed is halved.

Downdraft. You cause a sustained blast of strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) to blow downward from the top of the cube. Ranged weapon attacks that pass through the cube or that are made against targets within it have disadvantage on their attack rolls and any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1. A creature must make a Reflex saving throw if it flies into the cube for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there flying.

On a failure, the creature is knocked prone.

Updraft. You cause a sustained updraft within the cube, rising upward from the cube’s bottom edge. Creatures that end a fall within the cube take only half damage from the fall. When a creature in the cube makes a vertical jump, the creature can jump up to 2 meters higher than normal.

While the winds are not halted they have the following effects:

  • They deafens creatures in its area.
  • They extinguishes unprotected flames in its area that are torch-sized or smaller.
  • Any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1
  • They hedge out vapor, gas, and fog that can be dispersed by strong wind.
  • The area is difficult terrain for creatures other than you.
  • The attack rolls of ranged weapon attacks have disadvantage if the attacks pass in or out of the wind.
concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, choose an unoccupied 1-meter cube of air that you can see within 5 meters. An elemental force that resembles a dust devil appears in the cube.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can move the dust devil up to 5 meters.

A creature that moves within 1 meter of the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d12 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 3 meters away if it is Large or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 6 meters away if it is Large or smaller.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Additionally, any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1.

If the dust devil moves over sand, dust, loose dirt, or small gravel, it sucks up the material and forms a 2-meter radius cloud of debris around itself that lasts until the start of your next turn. The cloud heavily obscures its area.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d12, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, a brief windstorm filled with scouring, supernatural, grit that strips flesh forms at a point within 20 meters. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 5d6 slashing damage and is bleeding 2.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is bleeding 4.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is bleeding 1.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6 and the bleeding level by 1 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you, along with everything you’re wearing and carrying, transforms into a misty cloud. The spell ends if you drop to 0 health.

While in this form, the following rules apply:

  • your only method of movement is a flying speed of 2 meters (hover)
  • you can enter and occupy the space of another creature
  • you have resistance to nonmagical damage and are immune to the exhausted, grappled, paralyzed, petrified, poisoned, prone, and restrained conditions
  • you have advantage on Reflex and Fortitude saving throws
  • you can move through a space as narrow as 2 centimeters wide without squeezing, though treat liquids as though they were solid surfaces.
  • you can’t fall and remain hovering in the air even when stunned or otherwise incapacitated.
  • you can’t talk, manipulate objects, attack, use maneuvers, or cast spells. Any objects you were carrying or holding can’t be dropped, used, or otherwise interacted with.
  • if you are burning, the condition ends.
  • the only actions you can take in this form are the Dash action or to revert to your normal form. Until the spell ends, as two actions, you can revert to cloud form.

If you are in cloud form and flying when the effect ends, you descends 10 meters per round for 1 minute until you land, which you do safely. If you can’t land after 1 minute, you fall the remaining distance.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can target two additional creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

  • Wind Walk. You can expend 1 additional mana to cast this spell without concentration and modify the effect so your flying speed increases to 100 meters. You can target five additional creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As two actions, you draw the moisture from every creature at a point within 20 meters. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw, which it does with disadvantage if it is a plant creature, a magical plant, or a creature made of water such as a water elemental. If the creature has no moisture in its body, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 7d6 necrotic damage and is exhausted 1 until it rehydrates. This exhaustion does not accumulate with other forms of exhaustion due to dehydration.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is exhausted 2 until it rehydrates. This exhaustion does not accumulate with other forms of exhaustion due to dehydration.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The spell deals maximum damage to plant creatures, magical plants, or creatures made of water such as a water elemental.

Nonmagical plants that aren’t a creature, such as a tree or shrub, automatically fail the saving throw and withers and die.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 2d6 for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, you remove all the oxygen in a sphere centered on a point within 20 meters. Any burning creature in the area stops burning. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature doesn’t breathe, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it loses 3d6 health and is deafened, can’t speak, and can’t use breath weapons until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it loses twice as much health.

On a success, it loses half as much health.

On a critical success, it loses no health.

Augment

You can increase the health lost by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you incite the fears of creatures at a point within 10 meters, causing them to panic. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is immune to being frightened, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it is confused and frightened of the area in the center of the sphere for the duration.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, choose a sphere of terrain twice as big as normal within 20 meters. You can reshape dirt, sand, or clay in the area in any manner you choose for the duration. You can raise or lower the area’s elevation, create or fill in a trench, erect or flatten a wall, or form a pillar. The extent of any such changes can’t exceed half the area’s largest dimension. So, if you affect a 5-meter square, you can create a pillar up to 3 meters high, raise or lower the square’s elevation by up to 3 meters, dig a trench up to 3 meters deep, and so on. It takes 10 minutes for these changes to complete.

Every 10 minutes you spend concentrating on the spell, you can choose a new area of terrain to affect.

Because the terrain’s transformation occurs slowly, creatures in the area can’t usually be trapped or injured by the ground’s movement.

This spell can’t manipulate natural stone or stone construction. Rocks and structures shift to accommodate the new terrain. If the way you shape the terrain would make a structure unstable, it might collapse.

Similarly, this spell doesn’t directly affect plant growth. The moved earth carries any plants along with it.

As two actions, up to three pillars of sand burst from a place on the ground that you can see within 20 meters. A pillar is a cylinder that has a diameter of 2 meters and a height of up to 5 meters. The ground where a pillar appears must be wide enough for its diameter, and you can target ground under a creature if that creature is Large or smaller.

A pillar has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 30 Health. When reduced to 0 health, a pillar crumbles, which creates an area of difficult terrain with a 2-meter radius that lasts until the sand is cleared. Each 1-meter diameter portion of the area requires at least 1 minute to clear by hand.

If a pillar is created under a creature, that creature must make a Reflex saving throw or be lifted by the pillar. A creature can choose to fail the save.

On a success, the creature moves up to 1 meter to the nearest space.

If a pillar is prevented from reaching its full height because of a ceiling or other obstacle, a creature on the pillar takes 4d6 bludgeoning damage and is restrained, pinched between the pillar and the obstacle. A creature restrained by a pillar can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the creature is no longer restrained and must either move off the pillar or fall off it.

Augment

You can create one additional pillar for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, a swirling cloud of sand swirls through the air in a sphere centered on a point within 20 meters. The cloud spreads around corners and is heavily obscured. It lasts for the duration or until a wind of moderate or greater speed (at least 15 kilometers per hour) disperses it.

A creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d4 slashing damage and is blinded until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

As an action, you can cause the cloud to move 2 meters in a direction that you choose at the start of each of your turns. As an action, you can stop the cloud from moving if it is within 20 meters of you.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d4 for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so duration changes to 1 hour/mana.

  • Massive Sandstorm. You can expend 3 additional mana to create a 200-meter radius sphere at a point you can see within sight range. Sand and gusts assail the area. The area is difficult terrain and is heavily obscured. Ranged weapon attacks in the area are impossible. The wind and sand count as a severe distraction for the purposes of maintaining concentration on spells. Gusts of strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) automatically disperse fog, mists, and similar phenomena in the area, whether mundane or magical.

    The damage is reduced to 1d4.

As two actions, choose a sphere twice as big as normal of stone or sand that you can see within 20 meters, and choose one of the following effects.

Transmute Rock to Sand. Nonmagical rock of any sort in the area becomes an equal volume of thick, flowing sand that remains until the spell is dispelled.

The ground in the spell’s area becomes sandy enough that creatures can sink into it. Movement through the sand is at a quarter speed, and any creature on the ground when you cast the spell must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature must also make the saving throw when it moves into the area for the first time on a turn or ends its turn there.

On a failure, a creature sinks into the sand and is restrained, though it can use an action to end the restrained condition on itself by pulling itself free of the sand.

If you cast the spell on a ceiling, the sand falls. Any creature under the sand when it falls must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Transmute Sand to Rock. Nonmagical sand or quicksand in the area no more than 2 meters deep transforms into soft sandstone until the spell is dispelled. Any creature in the sand when it transforms must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a success, a creature is shunted safely to the surface in an unoccupied space.

On a failure, a creature becomes restrained by the rock. A restrained creature, or another creature within reach, can use an action to try to break the rock by succeeding on a Difficulty 20 Brawn check or by dealing damage to it. The rock has 15 Defense, 2 Soak, and 25 Health, and it is immune to poison and psychic damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage from the sand falling by 2d6 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a wall of swirling sand twice as big as normal on the ground at a point you can see within 20 meters that lasts for the duration.The wall can’t occupy the same space as a creature or object and it needs to be vertical and to rest on a firm foundation. The wall blocks line of sight, but creatures and objects can pass through it.

A creature must spend 3 meters of movement for every meter it moves through the wall. A creature is blinded until the start of its next turn after moving through the wall.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, a wall of strong wind rises from the ground at a point within 20 meters and lasts for the duration. The wall can’t occupy the same space as a creature or object and doesn’t need to be vertical or rest on any firm foundation. When the wall appears, choose a direction for the wind to blow. The wall’s space is difficult terrain. A creature that enters the wall’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage and is pushed 3 meters away from you following the direction of the wind if it is Large or smaller.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is pushed 6 meters away from you following the direction of the wind if it is Large or smaller.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The strong wind keeps fog, smoke, and other gases at bay. Small or smaller flying creatures or objects can’t pass through the wall. Loose, lightweight materials brought into the wall fly upward. Arrows, bolts, and other ordinary projectiles launched at targets behind the wall are deflected upward and automatically miss. (Boulders hurled by giants or siege engines, and similar projectiles, are unaffected.) Creatures in gaseous form can’t pass through it. Additionally, any burning creature in the area has the burning condition reduced by 1.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 2d6, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

(ritual); concentration, 1 hour/mana

As you spend 10 minutes to cast this spell while outdoors, you take control of the weather within 10 kilometers of you for the duration.

When you cast the spell, you change the current weather conditions, which are determined by the GM based on the climate and season. You can change precipitation, temperature, and wind. It takes 1d4 × 10 minutes for the new conditions to take effect. Once they do so, you can change the conditions again. When the spell ends, the weather gradually returns to normal.

When you change the weather conditions, find a current condition on the following tables and change its stage by one, up or down. When changing the wind, you can change its direction.

Moving to a place where you don’t have a clear path to the sky ends the spell early.

As two actions, a creature that is made of flesh that you can touch or see within 10 meters must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, its body starts to turn into crystalized salt as it is slowed 2.

A creature slowed by this spell must make another Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns.

On a success, the slowed level is reduced by 1.

On a failure, the slowed level increases by 1. The spell ends if the slowed level is reduced to 0. If the slowed level reaches 4, the creature is turned to salt, no longer makes saving throws each turn, and is subjected to the petrified condition for the duration.

Since this spell induces the process of becoming petrified, any effect that removes petrified apply to it.

If the creature is physically broken while petrified, it suffers from similar deformities if it reverts to its original state.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for the entire possible duration, the creature is turned to salt until the effect is removed.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a sphere of gusting air with a 2-meter radius at a point you can see within 10 meters. The sphere can hover but no more than 2 meters off the ground. Any Medium or smaller creature in the sphere’s space must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a success, a creature is ejected from that space to the nearest unoccupied space of the creature’s choice outside the sphere.

On a failure, a creature is engulfed by the gusting air for the duration. While engulfed, the creature is restrained, deafened, can’t speak, and can’t see anything further than 2 meters from itself. Additionally, any burning creature that is engulfed has the burning condition reduced by 1.

A creature restrained by the sphere, or one that can touch the creature, can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the target is freed. A creature with a flying speed has advantage on this ability check.

The sphere can restrain as many as two Medium or smaller creatures. If the sphere restrains a creature that causes it to exceed this capacity, a random creature that was already restrained by the sphere falls out of it and lands prone in a space within 1 meter of it.

As two actions, you can move the sphere up to 5 meters in a straight line. If it moves over a pit, a cliff, or other drop-off, it safely descends until it is hovering 2 meters above the ground. Any creature restrained by the sphere moves with it. You can ram the sphere into creatures, forcing them to make the saving throw.

When the spell ends, the sphere dissipates. Any creature restrained by the sphere is knocked prone in the space where it falls.

Augment

The sphere’s radius grows by 1 meter and the sphere can restrain two additional Medium or smaller creatures for each additional mana expended. The sphere can restrain Large creatures, which are equivalent to 4 Medium creatures.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, a whirlwind howls down to a point that you can see within 100 meters. The whirlwind is a cylinder twice as big as normal centered on that point. Until the spell ends, you can use two actions to move the whirlwind up to 5 meters in any direction. The whirlwind sucks up any Medium or smaller objects that aren’t secured to anything and that aren’t worn or carried by anyone.

Any burning creature in the whirlwind stops burning. The strong wind keeps fog, smoke, and other gases at bay. Loose, lightweight materials brought into the whirlwind fly upward. Arrows, bolts, and other ordinary projectiles launched at targets behind the whirlwind are deflected upward and automatically miss. (Boulders hurled by giants or siege engines, and similar projectiles, are unaffected.)

A creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage and is restrained for the duration. At the start of each of its turns while restrained, the creature takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage and is pulled 1 meter higher inside it, unless the creature is at the top. A restrained creature moves with the maelstrom.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

A creature restrained by the whirlwind can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty. If successful, the creature is no longer restrained by the whirlwind.

When the spell ends or if the creature escapes the whirlwind, it is hurled 1d6 × 2 meters away from it in a random direction unless it has something to hold on to. If the creature falls it takes falling damage as normal, unless it has some means to stay aloft.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6, you can affect a creature of a larger size, and you can increase the distance that the creature is thrown by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you create a magical restraint to hold a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The target must succeed on a Will saving throw or be entombed far beneath the sands in an air pocket that is just large enough to contain the target. Nothing can pass through the pocket, nor can any creature teleport or use planar travel to get into or out of it. If it succeeds, it is immune to this spell if you cast it again.

While affected by this spell, the creature doesn’t need to breathe, eat, or drink, and it doesn’t age. Divination spells can’t locate or perceive the target.

Ending the Spell. During the casting of the spell, you can specify a condition that will cause the spell to end and release the target. The condition can be as specific or as elaborate as you choose, but the GM must agree that the condition is reasonable and has a likelihood of coming to pass. The conditions can be based on a creature’s name, identity, or deity but otherwise must be based on observable actions or qualities and not based on intangibles such as level, class, or health.

A dispel magic spell can end the spell only if it is cast using 5 mana.
