Spells

As an action, you extend your hand and trace a sigil of warding in the air. Until the start of your next turn, you have resistance against bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage dealt by nonmagical attacks.

1 minute

As an action, you create up to three small lights within 10 meters, making them appear as torches, lanterns, or glowing orbs that hover in the air for the duration. Each light sheds bright light in a 1-meter radius and dim light for an additional 1 meter.

When you cast this spell, or as an action on a later turn, you can:

  • Move the lights up to 10 meters to a new spot within 20 meters. A light must be within 5 meters of another light created by this spell, and a light winks out if it goes beyond 20 meters.
  • Cause a light within 10 meters to flash brightly.
  • Recreate any lights that flashed within 10 meters.

You can cause a light to brightly flash a creature within 1 meter of it. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d4 radiant damage and mystical dim light glitters on it, causing the next attack roll made against it to have advantage if it is made before the end of your 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.

After flashing brightly, a light ends.

This spell immediately ends if you cast it again before its duration ends.

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you set an alarm against unwanted intrusion. Choose a door, a window, or an area within 5 meters that is no larger than a sphere. Until the spell ends, an alarm alerts you whenever a Tiny or larger creature touches or enters the warded area. When you cast the spell, you can designate creatures that won’t set off the alarm. You also choose whether the alarm is mental or audible.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, darkness spreads from a point within 20 meters to fill a sphere twice as big as normal for the duration. The darkness spreads around corners.

If the point is on an object you are holding or one that isn’t being worn or carried, the darkness emanates from the object and moves with it. Completely covering the source of the darkness with an opaque object, such as a bowl or a helm, blocks the darkness.

If any of this spell’s area overlaps with an area of light created by a spell using equal or less mana, the spell that created the light is dispelled. Non-magical light, as well as light created by concoctions or spells using equal or less catalysts or mana, can’t illuminate the area.

The sphere is now sized based on the mana expended and the duration changes to 5 minutes/mana, concentration. Shrieks, gibbering, and mad laughter can be heard within the sphere. Whenever a creature enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it must make a Will saving throw. On a failure, it is confused until the start of its next turn.

No light, magical or otherwise, can illuminate the darkness, and creatures fully within the area are blinded. Whenever a creature enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it must make a Reflex saving throw, taking 1d6 cold damage on a failed save as milky, otherworldly tentacles rub against it, or half as much damage on a successful one. You can increase the damage by 1d6 for every two additional mana expended.

(ritual); concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you sense the presence of magic within 5 meters of you. If you sense magic in this way, you can use an action to see a faint aura around any visible creature or object in the area that bears magic, and you learn its theme, if any.

The spell can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by 30 centimeters of stone, 2 centimeters of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 1 meter of wood or dirt.

If you touch a creature or object for 5 minutes, you can determine the magic affecting it. If it is a magic item or some other magic-imbued object, you learn its properties and how to use them, whether it requires attunement to use, and how many charges it has, if any. You learn whether any spells are affecting the item and what they are. If the item was created by a spell, you learn which spell created it. If it is a creature, you learn what spells, if any, are currently affecting it.

As an action, you create a circular, horizontal plane of force, 1 meter in diameter and 2 centimeters thick, that floats 1 meter above the ground in an unoccupied space of your choice that you can see within 5 meters.

For example, the disk can’t move across a 2-meter-deep pit, nor could it leave such a pit if it was created at the bottom.

You can increase the damage by 2d4 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a Large hand of shimmering, translucent force in an unoccupied space that you can see within 5 meters. The hand lasts for the duration, and it moves at your command, mimicking the movements of your own hand.

The hand doesn’t fill its space.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can move the hand up to 5 meters and then cause one of the following effects with it.

Clenched Fist. The hand strikes a creature or object within 1 meter of it. Make a melee spell attack.

On a hit, it takes 6d6 bludgeoning damage.

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

Forceful Hand. The hand attempts to push a creature within 1 meter of it in a direction you choose. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 5d6 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is pushed 3 meters away from the hand. The hand moves with the creature to remain within 1 meter of it.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

Grasping Hand. The hand attempts to grapple a creature within 1 meter of it. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d6 bludgeoning damage and if it is Medium or smaller it is grappled by the hand.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

Interposing Hand. The hand interposes itself between you and a creature. The hand moves to stay between you and the creature, providing you with half cover against the creature. The creature can’t move through the hand’s space unless it succeeds on a Brawn check to overrun it or a Nimbleness check to tumble past it.

Augment

You can increase the damage from the clenched fist and the grasping hand options by 2d6, the other options by 3d6, push the creature an additional meter for the forceful hand option, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a sword-shaped plane of force that hovers within 5 meters that lasts for the duration or until you cast this spell again. When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can move the weapon up to 5 meters and cause the sword to strike a creature within 1 meter of the sword. The target takes 5d4 + your spellcasting ability force damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d4 for each additional mana expended.

1 hour/mana

As two actions, you touch a willing creature. For the duration, the target’s movement is unaffected by difficult terrain, and spells and other magical effects can neither reduce the target’s speed nor cause the target to be paralyzed or restrained.

The target can also spend 1 meter of movement to automatically escape from nonmagical restraints, such as manacles or a creature that has it grappled. Finally, being underwater imposes no penalties on the target’s movement or attacks.

As you spend 1 hour to cast this spell, you inscribe a glyph that harms other creatures, either upon a surface (such as a table or a section of floor or wall) or within an object that can be closed (such as a book, a scroll, or a treasure chest) to conceal the glyph. The glyph can cover an area no larger than 2 meters in diameter. If the surface or object is moved more than 2 meters from where you cast this spell, the glyph is broken, and the spell ends without being triggered.

The glyph is nearly invisible and requires a successful Perception check against your spell save Difficulty to be found.

You decide what triggers the glyph when you cast the spell. For glyphs inscribed on a surface, the most typical triggers include touching or standing on the glyph, removing another object covering the glyph, approaching within a certain distance of the glyph, or manipulating the object on which the glyph is inscribed. For glyphs inscribed within an object, the most common triggers include opening that object, approaching within a certain distance of the object, or seeing or reading the glyph. Once a glyph is triggered, this spell ends.

You can further refine the trigger so the spell activates only under certain circumstances or according to physical characteristics (such as height or weight) or creature kind (for example, the ward could be set to affect aberrations or drow). You can also set conditions for creatures that don’t trigger the glyph, such as those who say a certain password.

When you inscribe the glyph, choose explosive runes or a spell glyph.

Explosive Runes. When triggered, the glyph erupts with magical energy in a sphere centered on the glyph. The sphere spreads around corners. Each creature in the area must make a Reflex saving throw. A creature takes 7d6 + your spellcasting ability force damage on a failed saving throw (your choice when you create the glyph), or half as much damage on a successful one.

Spell Glyph. You can store a spell of 2 mana or less in the glyph by casting it as part of creating the glyph. The spell must target a single creature or an area. The spell being stored has no immediate effect when cast in this way. When the glyph is triggered, the stored spell is cast. If the spell has a target, it targets the creature that triggered the glyph. If the spell affects an area, the area is centered on that creature. If the spell summons hostile creatures or creates harmful objects or traps, they appear as close as possible to the intruder and attack it. If the spell requires concentration, it lasts until the end of its full duration.

Augment

You can increase the damage of an explosive runes glyph by 2d6 for each additional mana expended. If you create a spell glyph, you can store any spell of up to the same mana as you expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you are surrounded by invisible necrotic spores in an aura shaped as a sphere. Until the spell ends, the aura moves with you, centered on you. An enemy 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 2d8 poison damage and is poisoned 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 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you create two magical motes in your space. They float in the air and orbit you for the duration. When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can expend a mote, sending it streaking toward a point within 20 meters. Once a mote reaches its destination or impacts against a solid surface, the mote explodes. Each creature within 1 meter of that point takes 2d8 + your spellcasting ability force damage.

If you have four or more motes remaining, they shed bright light in a 5-meter radius and dim light for an additional 5 meters. If you have one to three motes remaining, they shed dim light in a 5-meter radius.

Augment

You can increase the number of motes by 2, the damage by 1d8 for each additional mana expended, and the damage by 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

As two actions, mist sprouts at a point you can see within 20 meters. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d6 poison damage and is poisoned and confused 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 augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the damage is reduced to 1d6, but the duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the creature is poisoned and confused for the duration.

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

3 hours/mana

As two actions, your body automatically adapts to hostile environments. You can adapt to underwater, extremely hot, extremely cold, or airless environments, allowing you to survive as if you were a creature native to that environment. You can breathe and move (though penalties to movement and attacks, if any for a particular environment, remain), and you take no damage simply from being in that environment. You need not specify what environment you are adapting to when you cast this spell; simply activate it, and your body will instantly adapt to any hostile environment as needed throughout the duration.

You can somewhat adapt to extreme environmental features such as acid, lava, fire, and electricity. Any environmental feature that normally directly deals 1 or more dice of damage each round deals you only half the usual amount of damage.

As two actions, you touch a creature to neutralize one poison afflicting it. If more than one poison afflicts the creature, one poison is neutralized at random.

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.

1 minute/mana

As two actions, a plume of poison blooms at a point within 20 meters. The poison spreads around corners. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 6d6 poison damage and is poisoned for the duration.

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

Augment

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

As two actions, you poison a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d6 poison damage and is stunned 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 augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 6d6 for each additional mana expended. If this spell is augmented to target additional creatures, this damage is halved.

  • 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 duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the creature is stunned 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.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the creature is paralyzed instead of stunned.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you expose a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters to poison. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it loses any resistance to poison damage for the duration and the first time on each turn the creature takes poison damage, it takes an extra 2d6 poison damage.

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.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a sphere of yellow, nauseating gas twice as big as normal centered on a point within 20 meters. The cloud spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. The cloud lingers in the air for the duration.

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. If the creature doesn’t need to breathe or is immune to poison, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it spends its actions that turn retching and reeling.

A moderate wind (at least 15 kilometers per hour) disperses the cloud after 4 rounds. A strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) disperses it after 1 round.

1 hour/mana

As two actions, your skin receives sensory inputs, allowing you to feel light and sound. Your face must be uncovered to use this spell, as the skin of your face acts as the sensory receiver. You gain blindsight out to a range of 5 meters. If you already have blindsight, its range increases by 5 meters.

(ritual); 3 hours/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, a 2-meter radius immobile dome of force springs into existence around and above you and remains stationary for the duration. The spell ends if you leave its area.

Nine creatures of Medium size or smaller, or a mix of Medium size or smaller and Large creatures which are equivalent to 4 Medium creatures, can fit inside the dome with you. The spell fails if its area includes a larger creature or more than nine creatures. Creatures and objects within the dome when you cast this spell can move through it freely. All other creatures and objects are barred from passing through it. Spells and other magical effects can’t extend through the dome or be cast through it. The atmosphere inside the space is comfortable and dry, regardless of the weather outside.

Until the spell ends, you can command the interior to become dimly lit or dark. The dome is opaque from the outside, of any color you choose, but it is transparent from the inside.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, an invisible wall of force twice as big as normal springs into existence at a point within 20 meters that 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.

If a creature would be surrounded on all sides by the wall (or the wall and another solid surface), that creature can make a Reflex saving throw.

On a success, it can use its reaction to move up to its speed so that it is no longer enclosed by the wall.

The wall is weightless and 1 centimeter thick and each panel of the wall has 15 Defense, 2 Soak, 50 Health, and is immune to bludgeoning, necrotic, piercing, poison, and slashing damage. Reducing a panel to 0 health destroys it and might cause connected panels to collapse at the GM’s discretion.

Nothing—not physical objects, energy, or other spell effects—can pass through the barrier, in or out, though a creature in a sphere can breathe there. A creature or object inside can’t be damaged by attacks or effects originating from the other side.

You can size the wall to be just large enough to contain the creature or object inside. A creature enclosed in a spherical wall can use an action to push against the sphere’s walls and thus roll the sphere at up to half the creature’s speed. Similarly, a spherical wall can be picked up and moved by other creatures.

A disintegrate spell targeting the wall destroys it without harming anything inside it.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to change the duration to 1 hour/mana and a creature trapped inside the wall can’t leave it by nonmagical means. If the creature tries to use teleportation or interplanar travel to leave the wall, it must first make a Will saving throw.

On a success, the creature can use that magic to exit the cage.

On a failure, the creature can’t exit the cage and wastes the use of the spell or effect. The cage also extends into the Ethereal Plane, blocking ethereal travel.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you have resistance to all damage until the spell ends.

Augment

You can expend 2 additional mana to be immune to all damage instead of having resistance.
