Spells

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.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d4 and you can create an additional light when you reach 9th level (2d4; four lights) and 17th level (3d4; five lights).

1 minute

As an action, you create a sound or an image of an object within 5 meters that lasts for the duration. The illusion also ends if you dismiss it on your turn (no action required) or cast this spell again.

If you create a sound, its volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else’s voice, a lion’s roar, a beating of drums, or any other sound you choose. The sound continues unabated throughout the duration, or you can make discrete sounds at different times before the spell ends.

If you create an image of an object—such as a chair, muddy footprints, or a small chest—it must be no larger than a 1-meter cube. The image can’t create sound, light, smell, or any other sensory effect. Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it.

A creature can use an action to examine the sound or image, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If it succeeds, it becomes aware that it is an illusion. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the illusion becomes faint to the creature.

The illusion can be created to appear as a threatening creature just out of sight of a creature within 10 meters that you can see. If you so, the spell ends and the creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d2 psychic damage, can’t take reactions until the end of its next turn, and the next attack roll against it has 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.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d2 when you reach 9th level (2d2) and 17th level (3d2).

1 minute

As an action, you can mentally lift and move an object at will from a distance, though the spell ends if the distance between you and the object exceeds 5 meters. You can also use an action to manipulate an object, open an unlocked door or container, stow or retrieve an item from an open container, pour the contents out of a vial, stow one object in a container worn or carried by another creature, retrieve an object in a container worn or carried by another creature, use lock picks to pick locks or trap disarming tools to disarm traps at range. You can’t activate magic items or lift more than 2 kilos.

You can perform one of these tasks without being noticed by a creature if you succeed on a Stealth check contested by the creature’s Perception check.

At higher levels

The maximum weight of objects that you can target with this spell increases when you reach 9th level (5 kilos) and 17th level (7 kilos).

As an action, a dazzling array of flashing, colored light springs from your hand. Each creature in a cone or line must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it is blinded and staggered until the end of its next turn.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you create the image of an object, a creature, or some other visible phenomenon that is no larger than a sphere. The image appears at a spot within 20 meters and lasts for the duration. The image is purely visual; it isn’t accompanied by sound, smell, or other sensory effects.

As long as you are within 20 meters of the illusion, you can use an action to cause the image to move up to 5 meters to a space you can see, but the illusion must remain within 20 meters of you. As the image changes location, you can alter its appearance so that its movements appear natural for the image. For example, if you create an image of a creature and move it, you can alter the image so that it appears to be walking.

For the duration, you can cast spells as though you were in the illusion’s space, but you must use your own senses.

Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it. A creature can use an action to examine the image, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If it succeeds, it becomes aware that it is an illusion. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the creature can see through the image, and any other sensory qualities of the image become faint to the creature.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • Major Image. You can expend 1 additional mana so the image seems completely real, including sounds, smells, and temperature appropriate to the thing depicted. You can’t create sufficient heat or cold to cause damage, a sound loud enough to deal concussion damage or deafen a creature, or a smell that might sicken a creature (like a troglodyte’s stench). Additionally, when you move the illusion you can cause it to make different sounds at different times, even making it carry on a conversation, for example.

  • Indefinite. You can expend 1 additional mana so the spell lasts until dispelled, without requiring your concentration.

  • Programmed Image. You can expend 2 additional mana so the illusion activates when a specific condition occurs. The illusion is imperceptible until then. It must be no larger than a 5-meter cube, and you decide when you cast the spell how the illusion behaves and what sounds it makes. This scripted performance can last up to 5 minutes.

    When the condition you specify occurs, the illusion springs into existence and performs in the manner you described. Once the illusion finishes performing, it disappears and remains dormant for 10 minutes. After this time, the illusion can be activated again.

    The triggering condition can be as general or as detailed as you like, though it must be based on visual or audible conditions that occur within 5 meters of the area. For example, you could create an illusion of yourself to appear and warn off others who attempt to open a trapped door, or you could set the illusion to trigger only when a creature says the correct word or phrase.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you become invisible for the duration. Anything you are wearing or carrying is invisible as long as it is on your person. The spell ends if you attack, throw a concoction, use a maneuver, or cast a spell.

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

  • Continued Invisibility. You can expend 1 additional mana to change the duration to 1 hour/mana.

  • Mislead. You can expend 1 additional mana to create an illusory double of yourself where you are standing when you turn invisible.

    You can use an action to move your illusory double up to twice your speed and make it gesture, speak, and behave in whatever way you choose.

    You can see through its eyes and hear through its ears as if you were located where it is. On each of your turns as an action, you can switch from using its senses to using your own, or back again. While you are using its senses, you are blinded and deafened in regard to your own surroundings.

  • Misty Escape. You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack. Change the duration to instantaneous. You can turn invisible and teleport up to 10 meters to an unoccupied space you can see. You halve the attack’s damage against you. You remain invisible until the start of your next turn or until you attack or cast a spell.

  • Greater Invisibility. You can expend 3 additional mana so the spell does not end for a target that attacks, throws a concoction, uses a maneuver, or casts a spell.

1 minute/mana

As an action, three illusory duplicates of yourself appear in your space. Until the spell ends, the duplicates move with you and mimic your actions, shifting position so it’s impossible to track which image is real. You can dismiss the illusory duplicates on your turn (no action required).

Each time a creature targets you with an attack during the spell’s duration, roll 2d10 to determine whether the attack instead targets one of your duplicates.

If you have three duplicates, you must roll a 9 or higher to change the attack’s target to a duplicate. With two duplicates, you must roll a 10 or higher. With one duplicate, you must roll an 11 or higher. A duplicate’s Defense equals 11 + half your Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + your Dexterity. If an attack hits a duplicate, the duplicate is destroyed.

A duplicate can be destroyed only by an attack that hits it. It ignores all other damage and effects. The spell ends when all three duplicates are destroyed.

A creature is unaffected by this spell if it can’t see, if it relies on senses other than sight, such as blindsight, or if it can perceive illusions as false, as with truesight.

Augment

Illusory Self. You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack.

1 day/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you make terrain in a 20-meter cube within sight look, sound, smell, and even feel like some other sort of terrain. The terrain’s general shape remains the same, however. Open fields or a road could be made to resemble a swamp, hill, crevasse, or some other difficult or impassable terrain. A pond can be made to seem like a grassy meadow, a precipice like a gentle slope, or a rock-strewn gully like a wide and smooth road.

Similarly, you can alter the appearance of structures, or add them where none are present. The spell doesn’t disguise, conceal, or add creatures.

The illusion includes audible, visual, tactile, and olfactory elements, so it can turn clear ground into difficult terrain (or vice versa) or otherwise impede movement through the area. Any piece of the illusory terrain (such as a rock or stick) that is removed from the spell’s area disappears immediately.

A creature can use an action to examine the terrain, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If the check succeeds or if a creature has truesight, it can see through the illusion to the terrain’s true form; however, all other elements of the illusion remain, so while the creature is aware of the illusion’s presence, the creature can still physically interact with the illusion.

Augment

You can increase the cube by 20 meters for each additional mana expended.
