Claw (2/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +17 to hit, reach 2 m. Hit: 23 (3d8 + 10) slashing damage. If the dragon uses the grapple maneuver, the target is restrained until the grapple ends, and the dragon can’t constrict another target.

Frightful Presence (1/turn). Each creature of the silver greatwyrm’s choice that is within 20 meters of it and aware of it must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Will saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, with disadvantage if the silver 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 silver greatwyrm’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.

Cold Breath (Costs 2 actions; Recharge 5–6). The silver greatwyrm exhales an icy blast in a 20-meter cone or line. Each creature in that area must make a Difficulty 25 Fortitude saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 77 (14d10) cold damage and is slowed 4. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage and isn’t slowed.

Paralyzing Breath. The silver greatwyrm exhales paralyzing gas in a 20-meter cone or line. Each creature in that area must succeed on a Difficulty 25 Fortitude saving throw or be paralyzed 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.

Change Shape (1/turn). The silver greatwyrm can polymorph into a humanoid or animal that has a challenge rating no higher than its own, or back into its true form. It reverts to its true form if it dies. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying is absorbed or borne by the new form (the silver greatwyrm’s choice).

In a new form, the silver greatwyrm retains its personality, health, Health Dice, ability to speak, aptitudes, Legendary Resistance, lair actions, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma, as well as this action. Its statistics and aptitudes are otherwise replaced by those of the new form, except any class features or legendary actions of that form.

Legendary actions (3)

Only one legendary option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The silver greatwyrm regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Attack. The greatwyrm makes one Claw or Tail attack.

Detect. The silver greatwyrm makes a Perception check.

Wing Attack (Costs 2 actions). The silver greatwyrm beats its wings. Each creature within 2 meters of the silver greatwyrm must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Reflex saving throw or take 17 (2d6 + 10) bludgeoning damage and be knocked prone. The silver greatwyrm can then fly up to half its flying speed.

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 silver greatwyrm takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; the same effect can’t be used two rounds in a row:

  • The dragon creates fog as if it had cast the fog cloud spell. The fog lasts until initiative count 20 on the next round.

  • A blistering cold wind blows through the lair near the dragon. Each creature within 20 meters of the dragon must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Fortitude saving throw or take 5 (1d10) cold damage. 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.

  • Icy Grip. A sudden, supernatural chill fills the lair near the dragon. Each creature of the dragon’s choice that it can see within 20 meters of it must succeed on a Difficulty 26 Fortitude saving throw or be restrained until initiative count 20 on the next round. Creatures that have resistance to cold damage have advantage on the saving throw; creatures that have immunity to cold damage succeed automatically.

  • Whirling Wind. A strong wind blows in a 5-meter-radius sphere centered on the dragon. The dragon’s flying is not affected by this wind, which lasts until the next time the dragon uses a lair action or until the dragon dies.

Regional effects

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

  • Once per day, the dragon can alter the weather in a 10-kilometer radius centered on its lair. The dragon doesn’t need to be outdoors; otherwise the effect is identical to the control weather spell.

  • Within 2 kilometers of the lair, winds buoy non-evil creatures that fall due to no act of the dragon’s or its allies. Such creatures descend at a rate of 10 meters per round and take no falling damage.

  • Given days or longer to work, the dragon can make clouds and fog within its lair as solid as stone, forming structures and other objects as it wishes.

If the dragon dies, changed weather reverts to normal, as described in the spell, and the other effects fade in 1d10 days.

Spells

5 minutes

As an action, you can produce a small amount of snow or ice in your hand or shape an amount of water, ice, or snow within 10 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You can produce one of the following effects:

  • A ball of snow or a spike of ice forms in your hand. You can throw the snowball or icicle or stab a creature with the icicle. Make a melee or ranged spell attack against the target.

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

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

  • If you target an area of loose snow, 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 ice or snow, spelling out words, creating images, or shaping patterns. The changes last for 1 hour.
  • You freeze water, provided that there are no creatures in it. The water unfreezes in 1 hour.
  • You can melt ice or snow, provided that there are no creatures supported by it.
  • You can create an item by freezing water or forming snow or ice. The item created cannot exceed half a cubic meter in volume. It melts early if it is exposed to extreme heat or a flame. Objects created in this manner may be used as tools, but they are too fragile to be extensively used. They are also too fragile to be used as weapons except for arrows, bolts, bullets, and darts (casting this spell will create up to three of such at once).

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 1d10 when you reach 9th level (2d10) and 17th level (3d10).

  • 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 a reaction, which you use when you are hit by a weapon attack that you can see, you can redirect attacks with gusts of air. Attacks against you are made with disadvantage until the start of your next turn, including the triggering attack.

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.

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).

A creature killed by this spell becomes a frozen statue until it thaws.

If the blast of cold air strikes a body of water or a liquid that is principally water (not including water-based creatures), it freezes the liquid to a depth of 15 centimeters over the area. The ice is an instantaneous effect, but persists as nonmagical ice. Under temperate conditions, the ice lasts 1 minute. Creatures that were swimming on the surface of frozen water are trapped in the ice. A trapped creature can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty to break free.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6 for each additional mana expended. If you expend 4 or more mana, the slowed level increases to 2.

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.

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.

Roll a d4 and add the result to your Defense until the start of your next turn, including against the triggering attack. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

Additionally, you have resistance to fire damage until the start of your next turn.

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

  • Ice Shelter. You can expend 2 additional mana to instead become encased in ice as the damage against you is halved. For 1 minute/mana or until you end this feature on your turn, a non magical dome of solid ice forms around you. The dome forms up to 30 centimeters away from your body in all directions and is 30 centimeters thick.

    The dome is an object made of ice that can be damaged and thus breached. It has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, 30 Health, and it is vulnerable to fire damage. Reducing the dome to 0 health destroys it.

As an action, you create a shard of ice and fling it at a creature within 10 meters. Make a ranged spell attack against the target.

On a hit, it takes 2d8 piercing damage.

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

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

Hit or miss, the shard then explodes around the creature. Each creature within 1 meter of that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d6 cold 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 the knife strikes a body of water or a liquid that is principally water (not including water-based creatures), it freezes the liquid to a depth of 15 centimeters over an area 1 meter in radius. The ice is an instantaneous effect, but persists as nonmagical ice. Under temperate conditions, the ice lasts 1 minute. Creatures that were swimming on the surface of frozen water are trapped in the ice. A trapped creature can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty to break free.

Augment

You can increase the piercing damage by 2d8 and the cold damage by 2d6 for each additional mana expended.

As an action, a thin layer of ice covers the ground in a sphere centered on a point within 10 meters and turns it into difficult terrain.

When the ice 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 make the saving throw.

A 1-meter square of ice has 3 health. The ice is an instantaneous effect, but persists as nonmagical ice. Under temperate conditions, the ice lasts 1 minute. In tropical environments, it might last only half as long. In cold environments where ice and snow persist without melting, it could last indefinitely.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana so a number of objects equal to the mana expended within the sphere that aren’t being worn or carried are frozen cold for the same duration as the ice slick. A creature that touches an object covered in this ice takes 4d6 cold damage when it touches the object and at the end of each of its turns while touching the object.

As an action, a giant spear of ice lances up out of the ground within 10 meters. A spear is a stalagmite-like icicle shaped as a cylinder that has a diameter of 1 meter and a height of up to 2 meters. If a spear is created under a creature, it must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d10 cold damage and 1d10 piercing damage and is knocked prone if it is Medium or smaller.

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.

Ice spears created by this spell persist, melting depending on the surrounding environment. They can provide cover. An ice spear has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 20 Health.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the piercing damage by 2d10 and the cold damage by 1d10, increase the spear’s Defense by 2, and increase the spear’s Health by 15 for each additional mana expended.

  • You can create an additional spear for each additional mana expended. Additional augments to the damage increase the piercing damage by 1d10, increase the spear’s Defense by 1, and increase the spear’s Health by 7 for each additional mana expended, instead of the normal increase. If a creature succeeds on the saving throw against one spear, it can’t be knocked prone by other spears from this casting of the spell.

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.

1 hour/mana

As an action, ice rimes your body. You have resistance to cold damage, and ignore the effects of extreme cold, and can move across difficult terrain created by ice or snow without spending extra movement for the duration.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can target one additional willing creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

  • Immunity. You can expend 2 additional mana so you are immune to cold damage.

  • Fire Resistant. You can expend 1 additional mana so you have resistance to fire damage.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, snow falls in a cylinder twice as big as normal centered on a point within 20 meters. The area is heavily obscured, and exposed flames in the area are doused.

Augment

Sleet Storm. You can expend 1 additional mana so the ground in the area is covered with slick ice, making it difficult terrain. The duration changes to 5 minutes/mana. When 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.

On a failure, it falls prone.

If a creature starts its turn in spell’s area and is concentrating on a spell, the creature succeed on a Will saving throw against your spell save Difficulty or lose concentration.

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

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 a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack or missed by 4 or less, spectral frost rimes the creature who hit you. If the creature who damaged you is within 10 meters, it must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d8 cold damage and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

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, 5 minutes/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.

Any creature you animated with this spell acts after your turn. You can mentally command the creature if it is within 20 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). The creature(s) will generally follow any specific verbal commands that you issue to them if the likely outcome is in accordance with its desires (no action required by you). For example you may command it to guard a particular chamber or corridor, explore the room ahead, or to attack a specific creature. If you don't issue any commands, they defend themselves from hostile creatures, but otherwise take no actions.

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, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you call forth an ice elemental which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The elemental is an ice 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.

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, a billowing mass of icy and misty vapors appears 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 2d6 cold damage and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

At the start of each of your turns if the fog is within 20 meters of you, you can cause it to move up to 2 meters in a direction that you choose. If you spend an action, you can move it up to 10 meters.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d6 for every two additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to increase the slowed level by 1.

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

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 the roll 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 the roll 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.
  • Ranged weapon attacks have disadvantage if the attack passes 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 20 meters. An elemental force that resembles a dust devil appears in the cube.

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 2d10 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.

At the start of each of your turns if the dust devil is within 20 meters of you, you can cause it to move up to 2 meters in a direction that you choose. If you spend an action, you can move it up to 10 meters.

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 1d10, push each creature an additional meter, and affect a creature of a larger size for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, you freeze 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 cold 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.

As two actions, a frigid globe of cold energy streaks from your fingertips to a point of your choice within 20 meters, where it explodes. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d8 cold damage and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

If the globe strikes a body of water or a liquid that is principally water (not including water-based creatures), it freezes the liquid to a depth of 15 centimeters over an area equal to the radius of the sphere. The ice is an instantaneous effect, but persists as nonmagical ice. Under temperate conditions, the ice lasts 1 minute. Creatures that were swimming on the surface of frozen water are trapped in the ice. A trapped creature can use an action to make a Brawn or Nimbleness check (its choice) against your spell save Difficulty to break free.

You can refrain from firing the globe after completing the spell, if you wish. A small globe about the size of a sling stone, cool to the touch, appears in your hand. At any time, you or a creature you give the globe to can throw the globe (to a range of 5 meters) or hurl it with a sling (to the sling’s normal range). It shatters on impact, with the same effect as the normal casting of the spell. You can also set the globe down without shattering it. After 1 minute, if the globe hasn’t already shattered, it explodes.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8 for each additional mana expended. If you expend 4 or more mana, the slowed level increases to 2.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

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

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

As two actions, a hail of rock-hard ice pounds to the ground at a point within 100 meters. Each creature in a cylinder centered on that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d8 bludgeoning damage and 2d8 cold 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.

Hailstones turn the storm’s area of effect into difficult terrain until the end of your next turn.

Augment

You can increase the bludgeoning damage by 1d8 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, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you create a wall of ice twice as big as normal 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, though it needs a 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 an object made of ice that blocks line of sight. The wall can be damaged and thus breached. It has 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 1.5 Health per centimeter of thickness, and it is vulnerable to fire damage. Reducing a panel to 0 health destroys it and might cause connected panels to collapse at the GM’s discretion. When destroyed, it leaves behind a sheet of frigid air in the space the wall occupied. A creature moving through the sheet of frigid air for the first time on a turn must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 5d8 cold damage and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

You can use this spell to bridge a chasm or create a ramp. If you create a span greater than 4 meters in length, you must halve the size of each panel to create supports. You can crudely shape the wall to create crenellations, battlements, and so on.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for its whole duration, the wall becomes permanent and can’t be dispelled. Otherwise, the wall disappears when the spell ends.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d8 for each additional mana expended.

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, 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 skill 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.

At the start of each of your turns if the sphere is within 20 meters of you, you can cause it to move up to 2 meters in a direction that you choose. If you spend an action, you can move it up to 10 meters. 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.

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.

At the start of each of your turns if the whirlwind is within 20 meters of you, you can cause it to move up to 2 meters in a direction that you choose. If you spend an action, you can move it up to 10 meters.

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 two actions, a churning snow storm forms, centered on a point you can see within sight range and spreading to a radius of 200 meters. Hailstones, gusts, and freezing rain assail the area under the cloud from the cloud. The area is difficult terrain and is heavily obscured. Ranged weapon attacks in the area are impossible. The wind and rain 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.

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 1d8 cold damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 4 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you freeze a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters in a solid block of ice. The target must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or it is paralyzed and immune to all damage and effects while it is encased in ice; 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.
