  • Beguiling Glow. Warm light fills a 5-meter-radius sphere centered on the dragon; each creature in that area must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Will saving throw or be charmed by the dragon until initiative count 20 on the next round.

Regional effects

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

  • Whenever a creature that can understand a language sleeps or enters a state of trance or reverie within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair, the dragon can establish telepathic contact with that creature and converse with it in its dreams. The creature remembers its conversation with the dragon upon waking.

  • Banks of beautiful, opalescent mist manifest within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair. The mist doesn’t obscure anything. It assumes haunting forms when evil creatures are near the dragon or other non-evil creatures in the mist, warning such creatures of the danger.

  • Gems and pearls within 2 kilometers of the dragon’s lair sparkle and gleam, shedding dim light in a 1-meter radius.

  • Beneficent Trail. Within 15 kilometers of the dragon’s lair, small runes in the shape of a gold dragon appear to creatures in great need, marking a subtle trail leading to the dragon’s lair.

  • Emanation of Justice. Creatures that spend a year within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair value fairness and justice over their personal feelings.

  • Liar’s Revelation. Within 10 kilometers of the dragon’s lair, any creature attempting to tell a deliberate lie must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Will saving throw or find itself accidentally revealing the truth it was attempting to conceal. The first time a creature fails this saving throw, it is immune to this effect for 24 hours.

If the dragon dies, these effects end immediately.

M (ruby dust worth 50 sp, consumed)

As an action, a flame, equivalent in brightness to a torch, springs forth from an object that you touch and lasts until dispelled. The effect looks like a regular flame, but it creates no heat and doesn’t use oxygen. A continual flame can be covered or hidden but not smothered or quenched.

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, the creature gains divine conviction. The creature makes the roll with advantage. 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

The corona prevents an affected creature from passing or reaching through. An affected creature can cast spells or make attacks with ranged or reach weapons through the corona.

    If you move so that an affected creature is forced to pass through the corona, the spell ends.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, a weapon you touch sheds radiant light. For the duration, the weapon radiates bright light in a 2-meter radius and dim light for an additional 2 meters and deals an extra 1d4 radiant damage when it hits.

If the attack misses by 4 or less, the weapon deals half as much damage.

Alternatively, you can touch a quiver containing arrows or bolts, granting the ammunition pulled from it the same effect. The spell’s magic ends on a piece of ammunition when it hits or misses.

You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.

As an action, light spreads out from a point within 20 meters to fill a sphere twice as big as normal for the duration. The light sheds bright light and sheds dim light beyond the bright light to a distance equal to the sphere’s radius.

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

If any of this spell’s area overlaps with an area of darkness created by a spell using equal or less mana, the spell that created the darkness is dispelled.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the light is magical sunlight. A creature with the Sunlight Sensitivity species trait is impacted. Non-magical darkness, as well as darkness created by spells of using equal or less mana, can’t darken the area.

  • Dawn. You can expend 1 additional mana and cast the spell as two actions so the sunlight beams with radiant energy. The sphere is now sized based on the mana expended and the duration changes to 5 minutes/mana, concentration. Whenever a creature starts its turn in the sphere, it must make a Fortitude saving throw. Undead and oozes have disadvantage on this saving throw.

    On a failure, a creature takes 1d8 radiant damage and is blinded until the end of its next turn.

    On a success, it takes half as much damage.

    You can increase the damage by 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

    Additionally, this light makes it impossible for the creature to benefit from being invisible while in the bright light.

(ritual); concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you can sense the presence and location of corpses and undead within 20 meters of you. 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.

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); M (charcoal, incense, and herbs worth 10 sp that must be consumed by fire, consumed)

As you spend 10 minutes to cast this spell, you call forth an emissary of your deity. The emissary’s form is based on a creature that your deity is known for: almiraj, awakened shrub, badger, bat, cat, chwinga, crab, crawling claw, fish (quipper), flying monkey, flying snake, frog, hawk, homunculus, lizard, octopus, owl, poisonous snake, rat, raven, scorpion, sea horse, spider, toad, tressym, weasel, or any Tiny or smaller animal of challenge rating 0.

Appearing in an unoccupied space within 5 meters, the emissary has the statistics of the chosen form, though its health is increased by 5. Your emissary can understand your speech and you gain the ability to decipher its noises and motions.

Your emissary acts independently of you, but it always obeys your commands. In combat, it rolls its own initiative and acts on its own turn. If you don’t issue any commands to your emissary, it defends itself from hostile creatures but otherwise takes no actions. An emissary can’t attack, but it can take other actions as normal.

While your emissary is within 20 meters of you:

  • Your emissary has resistance to all damage. Each time it takes damage, you take the same amount of damage.
  • When you cast a spell with a range of touch, your emissary can deliver the spell as if it had cast the spell. Your emissary must use its reaction to deliver the spell when you cast it. If the spell requires an attack roll, you use your attack modifier for the roll.

As an action, you can temporarily dismiss your emissary if it is within 5 meters of you. It disappears into a pocket dimension where it awaits your summons. As an action while it is temporarily dismissed, you can cause it to reappear in any unoccupied space within 5 meters of you that you can see.

You can’t have more than one blood sentinel, divine emissary, familiar, or wild companion at a time. If you cast this spell while you already have a blood sentinel, divine emissary, familiar, or wild companion, the spell fails.

When the emissary drops to 0 health, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form. It reappears after you cast this spell again. If it is slain by a creature, you gain advantage on your next attack roll against the killer.

Augment

You can increase your emissary’s health by 15 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you speak a prayer censuring the faithless as they turn before the command of your deity. Each creature of your choice that can see or hear you within 5 meters of you must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, a creature is affected.

  • Banished or destroyed: each creature challenge ⅛ or lower is banished if it isn’t on its native plane of origin, otherwise it is destroyed. A banished creature is banished with a faint popping noise, returning to its home plane. If the spell ends before the duration ends, the target reappears within 5 meters of the space it left. Otherwise, the target doesn’t return.
  • Stunned: each creature challenge ¼ or lower is stunned for the duration.
  • Blinded and deafened: each creature challenge ½ or lower is blinded and deafened for the duration.
  • Turned: each creature challenge 2 or lower is turned and deafened for the duration. A turned creature must spend its turns trying to move as far away from you as it can, and it can’t willingly move to a space within 5 meters of you. It also can’t take reactions. For its actions, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there’s nowhere to move, the creature can Dodge. If the creature’s true form is concealed by an illusion, shapeshifting, or other effect, that form is revealed while it is turned.

If a creature is affected, but not banished or destroyed, it can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so a creature is banished or destroyed if its challenge is 1 or lower, stunned if its challenge is 2 or lower, blinded and deafened if its challenge is 3 or lower, and turned if its challenge is 5 or lower.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana so a creature is banished or destroyed if its challenge is 2 or lower, stunned if its challenge is 4 or lower, blinded and deafened if its challenge is 6 or lower, and turned if its challenge is 8 or lower.

  • You can expend 3 additional mana so a creature is banished or destroyed if its challenge is 3 or lower, stunned if its challenge is 6 or lower, blinded and deafened if its challenge is 9 or lower, and turned if its challenge is 12 or lower.

  • You can expend 4 additional mana so a creature is banished or destroyed if its challenge is 4 or lower, stunned if its challenge is 8 or lower, blinded and deafened if its challenge is 12 or lower, and turned if its challenge is 16 or lower.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, each creature and object in a sphere twice as big as normal within 10 meters is outlined in blue, green, or violet light (your choice). An unwilling creature must make a Fortitude saving throw to avoid the effect. For the duration, objects and affected creatures shed dim light in a 2-meter radius.

Any attack roll against an affected creature or object has advantage if the attacker can see it, and the affected creature or object can’t benefit from being invisible.

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.

As you spend 10 minutes to cast this spell, you summon a loyal, majestic steed. Appearing in an unoccupied space within 5 meters, the steed assumes the form of an animal companion that doesn’t have a burrow, flying, or swimming speed using 1 resource. A steed is typically a camel, elk, horse, mastiff, or pony, but if you have encountered more exotic creatures like an eagle, lizard, spider, wolf, rhinoceros, or saber-toothed tiger you can call forth one of them, with GM approval. The steed appears as a celestial (Holy) or a fiend (Unholy) instead of its normal creature type based on a theme you know and of a size suitable for you to ride: Medium if you are Small, or Large if you are Medium, but no other game statistics change.

Once called, you form a bond with the creature. Casting this spell again re-summons the same bonded steed, with all its health restored and any conditions removed. You can’t have more than one steed bonded by this spell at a time. As an action, you can release a steed from its bond, causing it to disappear permanently.

The steed has no stamina dice, but you can infuse it with stamina dice by expending mana, up to your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the steed gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The steed is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

You control the steed in combat. If you are not mounted, the steed only defends itself against hostile creatures.

While mounted on it, you can make any spell you cast that targets only you also target the steed.

The steed disappears temporarily when it drops to 0 health, leaving behind any objects it was wearing or carrying. You can dismiss the steed on your turn (no action required) as it leaves behind any objects it was wearing or carrying and wanders into the wilderness, disappearing after 1 minute.

Augment

You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended. The companion can have a burrow, flying, or swimming speed.

As an action, a flash of light streaks toward a creature within 20 meters. Make a ranged spell attack against the target.

On a hit, it takes 3d12 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 hit, it takes twice as much damage.

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

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d12 for each additional mana expended.

As an action, make a weapon attack.

On a hit, add 2d8 + your spellcasting ability radiant damage to the attack’s damage roll 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 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 3d8 for each additional mana expended.

As an action, you can use the Dash action. Until the end of your turn, you don’t provoke opportunity attacks and you can move through other creatures as if they were difficult terrain, but can’t stop there. Each creature that you move through this turn must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d8 radiant damage.

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

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

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 hour/mana

As an action, you have resistance to radiant damage for the duration.

Dampen the Light

1

As a reaction, which you use when you take radiant damage, you gain resistance to radiant damage until the start of your next turn.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to trigger the spell when a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters takes radiant damage. The creature gains the resistance instead.

As a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack or taking radiant damage, light wreaths your body, shedding bright light in a 2-meter radius and dim light for an additional 2 meters. If the creature who damaged you is within 10 meters, it must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 radiant 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 3d6 for each additional mana expended.

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.

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 a reaction, which you use when a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters of you attacks you or another creature, you can cause light to flare before the attacker before it hits or misses. You impose disadvantage on the attack roll. An attacker that can’t be blinded is immune to this feature.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana so the creature has disadvantage on attack rolls until the start of its next turn.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, feathery white wings spread out from your back so you gain a flying speed of 10 meters for the duration. When this spell’s duration would end, if you’re still flying, you float gently to the ground at 10 meters per round.

You can’t sprout your wings while wearing armor unless the armor is made to accommodate them, and clothing not made to accommodate your wings might be destroyed when you manifest them.

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 two actions, you produce a loud trumpeting. Each creature in a cone must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it is incapacitated until the end of its next turn.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so a creature is stunned instead of incapacitated.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana so the duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and a creature is incapacitated 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 minute/mana

(ritual); M (incense and a sacrificial offering appropriate to your religion worth 25 sp, consumed)

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you contact your deity or a divine proxy with an offering and ask a single question concerning a specific goal, event, or activity that has occurred or has yet to occur. The GM offers a truthful reply. The reply might be a short phrase, a cryptic rhyme, or an omen.

Divine beings aren’t necessarily omniscient, so you might receive “unclear” as an answer if a question pertains to information that lies beyond the deity’s knowledge. In a case where a one-word answer could be misleading or contrary to the deity’s interests, the GM might offer a short phrase as an answer instead.

If you cast the spell two or more times before finishing your next long rest, there is a cumulative 25% chance for each casting after the first that you get no answer. The GM makes this roll in secret.

Augment

You can ask one additional question for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, you create 7 kilos of food and 40 liters of clean water on the ground or in containers within 5 meters, enough to sustain up to seven humanoids or 2 steeds for 24 hours for each mana expended. The food is bland but nourishing, and spoils if uneaten after 24 hours. The water is clean and doesn’t go bad.

Augment

You create an additional 7 kilos of food and 40 liters of clean water for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you create two star-like motes in your space. They float in the air and orbit you for the duration. 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.

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 must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d6 radiant 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 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.

1 minute/mana

As two actions, you temporarily extinguish the violent impulses of a creature that you touch. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature is missing any of its health, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it is charmed by you for the duration or until you or your allies attack it, damage it, or force it to make a saving throw or if the target witnesses any of those things happening to its allies. While charmed, it can’t attack, cast spells that deal damage, or spells that force someone to make a saving throw.

3 hours/mana

As two actions, a Large spectral guardian appears and hovers for the duration in an unoccupied space of your choice that you can see within 5 meters. The guardian occupies that space and is indistinct except for a weapon it wields which is emblazoned with the symbol of your deity. The weapon is a weapon associated with your deity (as St. Cuthbert is known for his mace and Thor for his hammer).

When you cast this spell, you can designate any number of creatures you can see to be unaffected by it. 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, piercing, or slashing (based on the weapon associated with your deity) damage.

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.

The guardian vanishes when it has dealt a total of 50 damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d10 and the maximum damage increased by 25 for each additional mana expended.

M (herbs, oils, and incense worth 50 sp, consumed); 1 hour/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you infuse an area with holy (or unholy) energy for the duration. The area is a cylinder that is twice as big as normal centered on a point on the ground that you can see within 10 meters. Glowing runes appear wherever the cylinder intersects with the floor or other surface. Choose one of the following types of creatures: celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, or undead. The circle affects a creature of the chosen type in the following ways:

  • The creature can’t willingly enter the cylinder by nonmagical means. If the creature tries to use teleportation or interplanar travel to do so, it must first succeed on a Will saving throw.
  • The creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against targets within the cylinder.
  • Targets within the cylinder can’t be charmed, frightened, or possessed by the creature and any creature charmed, frightened, or possessed by the creature is no longer charmed, frightened, or possessed upon entering the area.

When you cast this spell, you can elect to cause its magic to operate in the reverse direction, preventing a creature of the specified type from leaving the cylinder and protecting targets outside it.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana to affect all celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana, increase the casting time to 24 hours, and expend materials equal to 500 sp to infuse the area with holy (or unholy) power until the spell is dispelled and increase the cylinder’s radius up to 10 meters. The spell fails if the radius includes an area already under the effect a hallow spell.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to bind an extra effect to the area. Choose the effect from the following list, or choose an effect offered by the GM. Some of these effects apply to creatures in the area; you can designate whether the effect applies to all creatures, creatures that follow a specific deity or leader, or creatures of a specific sort, such as orcs or trolls. When a creature that would be affected enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, it can make a Will saving throw.

    On a success, the creature ignores the extra effect until it leaves the area.

    Courage. Affected creatures can’t be frightened while in the area.

    Darkness. Darkness fills the area. Normal light, as well as magical light created by spells using less mana than you used to cast this spell, can’t illuminate the area.

    Daylight. Bright light fills the area. Magical darkness created by spells using less mana than you used to cast this spell can’t extinguish the light.

    Energy Protection. Affected creatures in the area have resistance to one damage type of your choice, except for bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing.

    Energy Vulnerability. Affected creatures in the area have vulnerability to one damage type of your choice, except for bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing.

    Everlasting Rest. Dead bodies interred in the area can’t be turned into undead.

    Extradimensional Interference. Affected creatures can’t move or travel using teleportation or by extradimensional or interplanar means.

    Fear. Affected creatures are frightened while in the area.

    Silence. No sound can emanate from within the area, and no sound can reach into it.

    Tongues. Affected creatures can communicate with any other creature in the area, even if they don’t share a common language.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, holy energy radiates from you, distorting and diffusing magical energy within a sphere centered on you. Until the spell ends, the sphere that is twice as big as normal moves with you. For the duration, each friendly creature in the area (including you) has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects. Additionally, when an affected creature succeeds on a saving throw made against a spell or magical effect that allows it to make a saving throw to take only half damage, it instead takes no damage if it succeeds on the saving throw.

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 minute/mana

As two actions, a silvery beam of pale light shines down in a 1-meter radius, 10-meter-high cylinder centered on a point within 10 meters. Until the spell ends, dim light fills the cylinder.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can move the beam up to 10 meters.

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, which it does with disadvantage if it is a shapechanger.

On a failure, it takes 4d6 radiant damage.

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.

If a shapechanger fails, it also instantly reverts to its original form and can’t assume a different form until it leaves the spell’s light.

Augment

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

As two actions, you touch a creature and can remove the blinded, deafened, or poisoned condition.

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.

  • Greater Purification. You can expend 1 additional mana to instead remove any reductions to one of its abilities, remove one effect that reduces its maximum health, remove one effect that charmed, paralyzed, or petrified it, or reduce its exhausted level by one.

As two actions, choose a creature, object, or magical effect within 20 meters. Make a Divinity or Occult check. The Difficulty typically equals the spell Difficulty used to cast the curse spell + the mana used to cast the curse spell or a flat Difficulty. If there are multiple curses and if you have not identified them, the curse is chosen at random starting with the least powerful curse.

On a success, if the curse specifies that it is lifted by this spell, the curse ends.

If you fail by 4 or less and the curse specifies that it is lifted by this spell, the curse is suppressed for 1 minute.

On a success, if the curse does not specify that it is lifted by this spell, you learn about the curse. The more information you already have about the thing, the more precise and detailed the information you receive is.

The information you learn is accurate, but might be couched in figurative language. For example, if you have a mysterious magic axe on hand, the spell might yield this information: “Woe to the evildoer whose hand touches the axe, for even the haft slices the hand of the evil ones. Only a true Child of Stone, lover and beloved of Moradin, may awaken the true powers of the axe, and only with the sacred word Rudnogg on the lips.”

Augment

You gain a +1 bonus to your ability check for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you call forth spirits to protect you. They flit around you in an aura shaped as a sphere. The guardian spirits provide supernatural protection. As a reaction, which you use when a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters of you takes damage, you can reduce that damage by double the mana expended to cast this spell and the attacker takes psychic damage equal to double the mana expended to cast this spell. An enemy creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d8 psychic damage, moves at half speed, and has disadvantage on attack rolls while in the area.

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, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a floating, spectral weapon within 5 meters that lasts for the duration or until you cast this spell again. The weapon takes the form of a weapon associated with your deity (as St. Cuthbert is known for his mace and Thor for his hammer). 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 make a melee spell attack against a creature within 1 meter of the weapon.

On a hit, the target takes 6d6 bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage (based on the weapon associated with your deity).

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

Augment

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

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you summon a pegasus, which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 20 meters. The celestial is friendly to you and your companions and disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

The celestial can’t use any legendary actions or lair actions. Any spell cast by the summoned celestial reduces your mana by the amount the celestial expends.

When it attacks, make a melee spell attack in place of its attack, but retain the damage and other effects.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you summoned with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters meters of you. 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. It obeys any verbal commands that you issue to it (no action required by you), as long as they don’t violate its belief systems. 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 summon one additional pegasus for each additional mana.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to summon a Couatl or Unicorn. You can call one additional creature for every two additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 3 additional mana to summon a Deva.

As two actions, brilliant sunlight flashes 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 an ooze or an undead.

On a failure, it takes 3d8 radiant 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.

If any of this spell’s area overlaps with an area of darkness created by a spell using equal or less mana, the spell that created the darkness is dispelled.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you create a shimmering wall of bright light 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. The wall blocks line of sight, but creatures and objects can pass through it. It emits bright light out to 20 meters and dim light for an additional 20 meters. A creature that enters the wall’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Fortitude saving throw, which it does with disadvantage if it is an ooze or an undead.

On a failure, it takes 4d8 radiant 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 2d8 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, shimmering energy surrounds and protects you from fey, undead, and creatures originating from beyond the Material Plane. For the duration, celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead have disadvantage on attack rolls against you.

You can end the spell early by using either of the following special functions.

Break Enchantment. As two actions, you touch a creature you can reach that is charmed, frightened, or possessed by a celestial, an elemental, a fey, a fiend, or an undead. The creature you touch is no longer charmed, frightened, or possessed by such creatures.

Dismissal. As two actions, a celestial, an elemental, a fey, a fiend, or an undead within 10 meters must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the creature is sent back to its home plane (if it isn’t there already). If they aren’t on their home plane, undead are sent to the Shadowfell, and fey are sent to the Feywild.

As a reaction, which you use when you are reduced to 0 health, you can instead burst with radiant energy. You instead drop to 1 health and regain 2d6 + your spellcasting ability health. Each creature other than you in a sphere centered on you must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d6 radiant damage.

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 healing by 1d6 and the damage by 1d6 for each additional mana expended.

6 hours/mana

As you spend 1 hour to cast this spell while holding your holy symbol up, you cause a temple to shimmer into existence on ground you can see within 20 meters. The temple must fit within an unoccupied cube of space, up to 20 meters on each side. The temple remains until the spell ends. It is dedicated to whatever god, pantheon, or philosophy is represented by the holy symbol used in the casting.

You make all decisions about the temples appearance. The interior is enclosed by a floor, walls, and a roof, with one door granting access to the interior and as many windows as you wish. Only you and any creatures you designate when you cast the spell can open or close the door.

The temple’s interior is an open space with an idol or altar at one end. You decide whether the temple is illuminated and whether that illumination is bright light or dim light. The smell of burning incense fills the air within, and the temperature is mild.

The temple opposes types of creatures you choose when you cast this spell. Choose one or more of the following: celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, or undead. If a creature of the chosen type attempts to enter the temple, that creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it can’t enter the temple for 24 hours. Even if the creature can enter the temple, the magic there hinders it; whenever it makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw inside the temple, it rolls with disadvantage.

In addition, the sensors created by divination spells can’t appear inside the temple, and creatures within can’t be targeted by divination spells.

Finally, whenever any creature in the temple regains health from a spell that expends mana, the creature regains additional health equal to your spellcasting ability.

The temple is made from opaque magical force that extends into the Ethereal Plane, thus blocking ethereal travel into the temples interior. Nothing can physically pass through the temple’s exterior. It can’t be dispelled by dispel magic, and antimagic field has no effect on it. A disintegrate spell destroys the temple instantly.

Casting this spell on the same spot every day for a year makes this effect permanent.

As two actions, divine light washes out from you and coalesces in a soft radiance in a sphere that is twice as big as normal around you. Creatures of your choice in that radius when you cast this spell shed dim light in a 1-meter radius and have advantage on all saving throws, and other creatures have disadvantage on attack rolls against them until the spell ends. In addition, when a fiend or undead hits an affected creature with a melee attack, the aura flashes with brilliant light. The attacker must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or be blinded until the spell ends.

As two actions, you request a miracle that can alter the very foundations of reality.

The basic use of this spell is to duplicate any other spell of 4 mana or less. Alternatively, you can create one of the following effects of your choice:

  • You create one object of up to 25,000 sp in value that isn’t a magic item. The object can be no more than 100 meters in any dimension, and it appears in an unoccupied space you can see on the ground.
  • You allow up to twenty creatures that you can touch or see to regain full health, you end all effects that cause them to be bleeding, blinded, burning, charmed, deafened, paralyzed, petrified, or poisoned, you remove any reductions to their abilities, you remove any effect that reduces their maximum health, and you reduce their exhausted levels by one.
  • You grant up to ten creatures that you can touch or see resistance to a damage type you choose.
  • You grant up to ten creatures you can see immunity to a single spell or other magical effect for 8 hours. For instance, you could make yourself and all your companions immune to a lich’s life drain attack.
  • You undo a single recent event by forcing a reroll of any roll made within the last round (including your last turn). Reality reshapes itself to accommodate the new result. For example, a miracle spell could undo an opponent’s successful save, a foe’s critical hit, or a friend’s failed save. You can force the reroll to be made with advantage or disadvantage, and you can choose whether to use the reroll or the original roll.

You might be able to achieve something beyond the scope of the above examples. State your miracle to the GM as precisely as possible. The GM has great latitude in ruling what occurs in such an instance; the greater the miracle, the greater the likelihood that something goes wrong. This spell might simply fail, the effect you desire might only be partly achieved, or you might suffer some unforeseen consequence as a result of how you worded the miracle. For example, requesting that a villain were dead might propel you forward in time to a period when that villain is no longer alive, effectively removing you from the game. Similarly, requesting a legendary magic item or artifact might instantly transport you to the presence of the item’s current owner.

The stress of casting this spell to produce any effect other than duplicating another spell weakens you. After enduring that stress, each time you cast a spell until you finish a long rest, you take 2d10 necrotic damage for each mana expended. This damage can’t be reduced or prevented in any way. In addition, your Strength becomes −4, if it isn’t −4 or lower already, for 2d4 days. For each of those days that you spend resting and doing nothing more than light activity, your remaining recovery time decreases by 2 days. Finally, there is a 33% chance that you are unable to cast miracle ever again if you suffer this stress.
