As an action, you sing a lullaby to a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is a construct or an undead, can’t hear you, or is immune to being charmed, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it becomes tired and delirious as its speed is reduced by 2 meters, it can’t take reactions, and it has disadvantage on ability checks until the end of its next turn.

This spell ends for a creature if it takes damage or someone uses an action to shake or slap it awake. Additionally, the creature can repeat the saving throw if it hears an extraordinarily loud noise such as the thunderwave spell, ending the effect on itself on a success.

On a hit, add 1d6 damage 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.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you beguile a creature within 10 meters who can hear you to ignore an ally. The creature must make a Will saving throw, which it does with advantage if the ally is fighting it.

On a failure, it is charmed by one of your allies within 5 meters of it for the duration.

The spell ends if the chosen ally attacks, damages, or attempts to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you exert an aura of sympathetic power. Each creature other than you in a sphere twice as big as normal centered on you must make a Will saving throw, which it does with advantage if you or your companions are fighting it.

On a failure, it is charmed by you and friendly to you 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, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you know if there is an aberration, celestial, elemental, fey, fiend, or undead within 5 meters of you, as well as where the creature is located. Similarly, you know if there is a place or object within 5 meters of you that has been magically consecrated or desecrated.

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.

(ritual); concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, describe or name an object that is familiar to you. You sense the direction to the object’s location, as long as that object is within 400 meters of you. If the object is in motion, you know the direction of its movement.

The spell can locate a specific object known to you, as long as you have seen it up close—within 5 meters—at least once. Alternatively, the spell can locate the nearest object of a particular kind, such as a certain kind of apparel, jewelry, furniture, tool, or weapon.

This spell can’t locate an object if any thickness of lead, even a thin sheet, blocks a direct path between you and the object.

Augment

Locate Creature. You can expend 1 additional mana to locate a creature instead of an object. Describe or name a creature that is familiar to you. You sense the direction to the creature’s location, as long as that creature is within 400 meters of you. If the creature is moving, you know the direction of its movement.

The spell can locate a specific creature known to you, or the nearest creature of a specific kind (such as a human or a unicorn), so long as you have seen such a creature up close—within 5 meters—at least once. If the creature you described or named is in a different form, such as being under the effects of a polymorph spell, this spell doesn’t locate the creature.

This spell can’t locate a creature if running water at least 2 meters wide blocks a direct path between you and the creature.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, one willing creature you touch is protected against certain types of creatures: aberrations, celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead.

The protection grants several benefits. Creatures of those types have disadvantage on attack rolls against the target. The target also can’t be charmed, frightened, or possessed by them. If the target is already charmed, frightened, or possessed by such a creature, the target has advantage on any new saving throw against the relevant effect.

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 an action, you ward a creature within 5 meters against attack. Until the spell ends, any creature who targets the warded creature with an attack or a harmful spell must first make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the creature must choose a new target or lose the attack or spell. This spell doesn’t protect the warded creature from area effects, such as the explosion of a fireball.

If the warded creature makes an attack, casts a spell that affects an enemy, or deals damage to another creature, this spell ends.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, a shimmering field appears and surrounds a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters, granting it a +2 bonus to Defense for the duration.

Augment

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.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, you cause a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters to fall asleep. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is a construct or an undead, can’t hear you, or is immune to being charmed, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, you lull it into a magical slumber, causing it to fall unconscious for the duration.

This spell ends for a creature if it takes damage or someone uses an action to shake or slap it awake. Additionally, the creature can repeat the saving throw each minute or if it hears an extraordinarily loud noise such as the thunderwave spell, ending the effect on itself on a success.

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.

As a reaction, which you use when you or another creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you can twist fate. The creature makes the roll with advantage or with disadvantage (your choice). You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

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

Augment

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