On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

If you are outdoors in stormy conditions when you cast this spell, the spell gives you control over the existing storm instead of creating a new one. Under such conditions, each creature within 2 meters of the point must make the saving throw.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d12 for each additional mana expended.

As two actions, a bolt of lightning arcs toward a target that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The lightning can then arc to another target within 5 meters of the first target and a third target within 5 meters of the second target. A target can be a creature or an object and can be targeted only once. A target must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 5d8 lightning damage and can’t take reactions 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.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you sense the presence of danger within 20 meters. For the duration, attack rolls against you can’t gain advantage, you have advantage on initiative checks, you have advantage on Perception checks to find traps, and you have advantage on Reflex saving throws to avoid traps.

concentration, 3 hours/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you can find the shortest, most direct physical route to a specific fixed location that you are familiar with on the same plane of existence. If you name a destination on another plane of existence, a destination that moves (such as a mobile fortress), or a destination that isn’t specific (such as “a green dragon’s lair”), the spell fails.

For the duration, as long as you are on the same plane of existence as the destination, you know how far it is and in what direction it lies. While you are traveling there, whenever you are presented with a choice of paths along the way, you automatically determine which path is the shortest and most direct route (but not necessarily the safest route) to the destination.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you can divine the near future. By understanding the course of one’s near future, one can direct their actions to the advantages that fate set for them. You gain an effect determined by rolling on the Fortunes of Fate table, which lasts for the duration.

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.”
