On a failure, it is it can’t see you until the end of your next turn, as if you are invisible to it.

As an action, you charm a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw, which it does with advantage if you or your companions are fighting it.

On a failure, it is charmed by you until the end of your next turn.

The spell ends if you or your allies attack, damage, or attempt to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way.

When the spell ends, the creature knows it was charmed by you.

As an action, you can detect the surface emotions of a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters of you.

You learn the surface emotions of the creature. You can sense basic needs, drives, and emotions. Thirst, hunger, fear, fatigue, pain, rage, hatred, uncertainty, curiosity, friendliness, and many other kinds of sensations and moods can all be perceived.

As an action, you can frighten a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d3 psychic damage and is frightened of you 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.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d3 when you reach 9th level (2d3) and 17th level (3d3).

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

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

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

1 minute

As an action, you can manipulate sound within 5 meters. You create one of the following magical effects.

  • You create an instantaneous sound whose volume can range from a whisper to a scream. It can be your voice, someone else’s voice, a lion’s roar, a beating of drums, a rumble of thunder, the cry of a raven, ominous whispers, or any other sound you choose.
  • Your voice booms up to three times as loud as normal.
  • You can make a creature’s voice or an object’s sound half as quiet or twice as loud.
  • You can alter the pitch of a sound, making it high-pitched or low-pitched.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three of its effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

5 minutes

As an action, you provide succor to an ailing creature that you can touch, masking its suffering for the duration.

The creature no longer feels any physical pain or discomfort.

A creature can use an action to determine why it suddenly feels no pain, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If it succeeds, it becomes aware of the illusion and is immune to this spell for the next 24 hours.

1 minute

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

  • You instantaneously cause an unlocked door or window to fly open or slam shut.
  • You alter the appearance of your eyes.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three of its effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

As an action, you unleash a string of insults laced with subtle enchantments at a creature within 5 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature can’t hear you, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 1d4 psychic damage and has disadvantage on the next attack roll it makes before 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.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d4 when you reach 9th level (2d4) and 17th level (3d4).

3 hours/mana

As an action, you touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and the target’s skin has a rough, bark-like appearance until the spell ends. The target’s Defense becomes 13 + half its Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + its Dexterity (max 4). The spell ends if the target dons armor or if you dismiss the spell on your turn (no action required).

concentration, 1 minute/mana

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

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

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

1 minute/mana

As an action, your body becomes blurred, shifting and wavering to all who can see you. For the duration, any creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against you. An attacker is immune to this effect if it doesn’t rely on sight, as with blindsight, or can see through illusions, as with truesight.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you are hit by an attack. The attacker must make an additional attack roll and use the worst result.

As a reaction, which you use when you make an Intimidation check, your words become more commanding. You make 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.

1 hour/mana

As an action, you charm a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw, which it does with advantage if you or your companions are fighting it.

On a failure, it is charmed by you and friendly to you for the duration.

The spell ends if you or your allies attack, damage, or attempt to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way.

When the spell ends, the creature knows it was charmed by you.

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 minute/mana

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

On a failure, it is charmed by you and friendly to you for the duration.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

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). If the creature attempting to interact with the object wins the contest, it can interact with the object.

Flee. On its turn, the creature must use its speed to move away from you by the shortest and most direct route, and can’t willingly move toward you on during its turn.

Grovel. The creature immediately falls prone.

Halt. On its turn, the creature can’t willingly move. A flying creature stays aloft, provided that it is able to do so. If it must move to stay aloft, it flies the minimum distance needed to remain in the air.

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

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to change the duration to 1 minute/mana, concentration. For the duration, you can make an additional command on each of your turns.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, make a weapon attack.

On a hit, if the creature is within 20 meters, it must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the creature is drawn to you, compelled by your demand. While compelled, it has disadvantage on attack rolls against creatures other than you, and must make a Will saving throw each time it attempts to move into a space that is more than 5 meters away from you.

The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

The spell ends if you attack or damage any other creature, if you cast a spell that targets a hostile creature other than the target, if your allies attack, damage, or attempt to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way, or if you end your turn more than 5 meters away from the target.

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 an action, you shape and alter existing sounds within 20 meters. You can target one sound, such as a person speaking or singing, a group of related sounds such as the patter of many raindrops or the tramp of soldiers passing by, or all sounds in a sphere centered on a point. A sound as quiet as a snapping finger can be controlled.

You can entirely muffle a noise to make no sound at all or magnify a sound to such loudness that it drowns out all other conversation in the immediate area. In this way, you can provide yourself or any creature with advantage on Stealth and audio-based Perception checks.

You can substitute any sound you have heard for the target sound. If you attempt to exactly duplicate the voice of a specific individual, or an inherently terrifying sound (such as a dragon’s roar), you must succeed on a Deception ability check with advantage opposed by the intended listener’s passive Insight to avoid arousing suspicion.

Alternatively, you can use up the spell in an instant. You do this by modulating a sound into a one-time destructive impetus that shatters nonmagical, unattended objects of crystal, glass, ceramics, or porcelain (vials, bottles, flasks, jugs, mirrors, and so forth) in the area.

As a reaction, which you use when another creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you can use your wit to distract, confuse, and otherwise sap the confidence and competence of the creature. The creature makes the roll with disadvantage. The creature is immune if it is a construct or an undead, can’t hear you, or is immune to being charmed. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

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

Augment

You can use cutting words against one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As a reaction, which you use when you make a Deception check, your words entice the gullible. You make 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.

1 hour/mana

As an action, you change the appearance of a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. You give the creature a new, illusory, appearance. An unwilling creature can make a Will saving throw, and if it succeeds, it is unaffected by this spell.

The spell disguises physical appearance as well as clothing, armor, weapons, and equipment. You can make the creature seem up to 30 centimeters shorter or taller and appear thin, fat, or in between. You can’t change a creature’s body type, so you must choose a form that has the same basic arrangement of limbs. Otherwise, the extent of the illusion is up to you. The spell lasts for the duration, unless you dismiss it on your turn (no action required).

The changes wrought by this spell fail to hold up to physical inspection. For example, if you use this spell to add a hat to a creature’s outfit, objects pass through the hat, and anyone who touches it would feel nothing or would feel the creature’s head and hair. If you use this spell to appear thinner than you are, the hand of someone who reaches out to touch you would bump into you while it was seemingly still in midair.

A creature can use an action to inspect a creature, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If it succeeds, it becomes aware that the creature is disguised.

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 minute/mana

As an action, make a weapon attack.

On a hit, add 2d8 + your spellcasting ability psychic damage to the attack’s damage roll and the creature must succeed on a Will saving throw or it is frightened of you for the duration.

On a critical hit, add twice as much damage.

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

The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

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

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you attempt to falsify one of a creature’s senses. Choose a creature that you can touch or see within 100 meters who must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the target thinks it sees, hears, smells, tastes, or feels something other than what its senses actually report.

You can’t create a sensation where none exists, nor make the target completely oblivious to a sensation, but you can replace the specifics of one sensation with different specifics. For instance, you could make a human look like a dwarf (or one human look like another specific human), a closed door look like it is open, a vat of acid smell like rose water, a parrot look like a bookend, stale rations taste like fresh fruit, a light pat feel like a dagger thrust, a scream sound like the howling wind, and so on.

You can switch between senses you falsify round by round. You can’t alter the size of an object by more than 50% by using this spell. Thus, you couldn’t make a castle look like a hovel, but you could make it look like a different castle, or a rough hillock of approximately the same size.

Because you override a victim’s senses, you can fool a victim who is using true seeing or some other method of gathering information.

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, 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 a reaction, which you use when you make a Persuasion check, your words become more enticing. You make 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.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you exert an aura of frightening power. Each creature of your choice that is not a construct or an undead in a sphere around you must succeed on a Will saving throw or become frightened of you for the duration.

While frightened by this spell, a 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.

As an action, your soft words can magically enthrall a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters of you. If the target can see or hear you, it must succeed on a Will saving throw or be charmed by you for the duration. The charmed creature is immobilized, it cannot speak, and the creature is incapacitated and visibly dazed.

The effect ends for the creature if you move more than 5 meters away from it, if it can neither see nor hear you, or if it takes damage.

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.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana so the duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the 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.

(ritual); 10 days

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you write on parchment, paper, or some other suitable writing material and imbue it with a potent illusion that lasts for the duration.

To you and any creatures you designate when you cast the spell, the writing appears normal, written in your hand, and conveys whatever meaning you intended when you wrote the text. To all others, the writing appears as if it were written in an unknown or magical script that is unintelligible. Alternatively, you can cause the writing to appear to be an entirely different message, written in a different hand and language, though the language must be one you know.

Should the spell be dispelled, the original script and the illusion both disappear.

A creature with truesight can read the hidden message.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As a reaction, which you use when a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters of you makes an attack roll against you, you can try to divert the attack, provided that another creature is within the attack’s range. The attacker must succeed on a Will saving throw or it must target the creature that is closest to it, not including you or itself. If multiple creatures are closest, the attacker chooses which one to target.

You must choose to use this feature before knowing whether the attack hits or misses. Creatures that can’t be charmed are immune to this effect.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(ritual)

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you implant a message within an object you can touch or see within 5 meters until the spell is dispelled, a message that is uttered when a trigger condition is met. Choose an object that you can touch or see and that isn’t being worn or carried by another creature. Then speak the message, which must be 25 words or less, though it can be delivered over as long as 10 minutes. Finally, determine the circumstance that will trigger the spell to deliver your message.

When that circumstance occurs, a magical mouth appears on the object and recites the message in your voice and at the same volume you spoke. If the object you chose has a mouth or something that looks like a mouth (for example, the mouth of a statue), the magical mouth appears there so that the words appear to come from the object’s mouth. When you cast this spell, you can have the spell end after it delivers its message, or it can remain and repeat its message whenever the trigger occurs.

The triggering circumstance can be as general or as detailed as you like, though it must be based on visual or audible conditions that occur within 5 meters of the object. For example, you could instruct the mouth to speak when any creature moves within 5 meters of the object or when a silver bell rings within 5 meters of it.

1 minute/mana

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

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

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

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

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

Augment

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

As an action, you shape two illusory duplicates of yourself that attack simultaneously from different directions as make a weapon attack with advantage.

On a hit, add 1d10 + 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 2d10 for each additional mana expended.

As a reaction, which you use when a creature that you can touch or see within 2 meters of you makes an attack roll against you, you can try to redirect the attack, provided that another creature is within 1 meter of you and within the attack’s range. The attacker must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or it must target that creature. If multiple creatures are within 1 meter of you and within the attack’s range, the attacker chooses which one to target.

You must choose to use this feature before knowing whether the attack hits or misses.

1 hour/mana

As an action, a veil of shadows and silence covers you, masking you from detection. For the duration, you have advantage on Stealth checks and can’t be tracked except by magical means. A creature that receives this bonus leaves behind no tracks or other traces of its passage.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana so each creature you choose within 5 meters of you (including you) has advantage on Stealth checks and can’t be tracked except by magical means.

1 hour/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, a Large quasi-real, horselike creature appears on the ground in an unoccupied space of your choice within 5 meters. You decide the creature’s appearance, but it has smoke-colored, insubstantial hooves that make no sound and it is equipped with a saddle, bit, and bridle. Any of the equipment created by the spell vanishes in a puff of smoke if it is carried more than 2 meters away from the steed.

For the duration, you or a creature you choose can ride the steed. The creature uses the statistics for a riding horse, except it has a speed of 20 meters and can travel 15 kilometers in an hour, or 25 kilometers at a fast pace. When the spell ends, the steed gradually fades, giving the rider 1 minute to dismount. The spell ends if you dismiss it on your turn (no action required) or if the steed takes any damage.

The steed can ride over sandy, muddy, or even swampy ground without difficulty or a decrease in speed.

Augment

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

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

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

(ritual); 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you gain the ability to comprehend and verbally communicate with animals for the duration. The knowledge and awareness of many animals is limited by their intelligence, but at a minimum, animals can give you information about nearby locations and creatures, including whatever they can perceive or have perceived within the past day. You might be able to persuade an animal to perform a small favor for you, at the GM’s discretion.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

On a failure, it is indifferent about creatures of your choice that it is hostile toward 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.

1 minute

As two actions, you make a calming gesture, and up to three willing creatures that you can touch or see within 5 meters fall unconscious for the duration. This spell ends for a creature if it takes damage or someone uses an action to shake or slap it awake. If a target remains unconscious for the full duration, that target gains the benefit of a short rest.

A character can’t benefit from a short rest more than once every four hours, can’t benefit from more than two short rests before they take a long rest, and a character must have at least 1 health at the start of the rest to gain its benefits.

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 minute/mana

As two actions, creatures of your choice within 5 meters that can hear you must make a Will saving throw. A target automatically succeeds on this saving throw if it can’t be charmed.

On a failure, a target is affected by this spell. Until the spell ends, you can use an action on each of your turns to designate a direction that is horizontal to you. Each affected target must use as much of its movement as possible to move in that direction on its next turn. It can take any actions before it moves. After moving in this way, it can make another saving throw to try to end the effect.

A target isn’t compelled to move into an obviously deadly hazard, such as a fire or a pit, but it will provoke opportunity attacks to move in the designated direction.

1 hour/mana

As two actions, you whisper a damning secret to a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. Only the creature can hear the whisper. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature doesn’t share a language with you or if it can’t hear you, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it is charmed by you for the duration. The creature interprets the whispers as a description of its most mortifying secret. You gain no knowledge of this secret, but the target is convinced you know it. The charmed creature obeys your commands for fear that you will reveal its secret. It won’t risk its life for you or fight for you, unless it was already inclined to do so. It grants you favors and gifts it would offer to a close friend.

The spell ends if you or your allies attack, damage, or attempt to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way.

When the effect ends, the creature has no understanding of why it held you in such fear.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it is plunged into an illusory realm as it is charmed or frightened by you for the duration. This effect ends early if the creature takes any damage.

Until this illusion ends, the creature thinks it is lost in a misty realm, the appearance of which you choose. The creature can see and hear only itself, you, and the illusion.

A creature can repeat the saving throw with disadvantage at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

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

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 you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you shape the dreams of a creature known to you. You, or a willing creature you touch, enters a trance state, acting as a messenger.

While in the trance, the messenger is aware of its surroundings, but is immobilized and incapacitated. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw, which it does with disadvantage if if you have a body part, lock of hair, clipping from a nail, or similar portion of the creature’s body. If the creature isn’t on the same plane of existence as you, isn’t asleep, or doesn’t sleep, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, the messenger appears in the target’s dreams and can converse with the target as long as it remains asleep, through the duration of the spell. The messenger can also shape the environment of the dream, creating landscapes, objects, and other images. The messenger can emerge from the trance at any time, ending the effect of the spell early. The target recalls the dream perfectly upon waking.

Once during the dream, the target can choose to make a Will saving throw to end its effect.

1 minute/mana

As two actions, you weave a distracting string of words, enthralling creatures of your choice within 10 meters. Each creature must make a Will saving throw, which it does with advantage if you or your companions are fighting it. If the creature is immune to being charmed or it can’t hear you, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, the creature has disadvantage on Perception checks made to perceive any creature other than you until the spell ends or until the target can no longer hear you. The spell ends if you are incapacitated or can no longer speak.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a twisting pattern of colors that weaves through the air inside a sphere within 10 meters. The pattern appears for a moment and vanishes. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Will saving throw. If the creature can’t see the pattern, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it is charmed for the duration. While charmed by this spell, the creature is incapacitated and immobilized.

A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

The spell ends for an affected creature if it takes any damage or if someone else uses an action to shake the creature out of its stupor.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you create a Huge dragon in an unoccupied space that you can see within 20 meters. The illusion lasts for the duration and occupies its space, as if it were a creature.

When the illusion appears, each creature of your choice in a sphere twice as big as normal around it and that can see it must succeed on a Will saving throw or become frightened of it for the duration. If a frightened creature ends its turn in a location where it doesn’t have line of sight to the illusion, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.

As an action, you can move the illusion up to 10 meters.

A creature can use an action to examine the dragon, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If it succeeds, it becomes aware that it is an illusion. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the creature can see through it and has advantage on saving throws against it.

Augment

You can expend 2 additional mana so the illusion becomes tangible, but attacks miss it automatically, it succeeds on all saving throws, and it is immune to all damage and conditions. The dragon gains a breath weapon. When you create the dragon, choose a damage type: acid, cold, fire, lightning, necrotic, or poison. The breath weapon can be used at any point during its movement to exhale a blast of energy in a cone or line originating from its space. Each creature in the area must make a Will saving throw, taking 2d12 damage of the chosen damage type on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

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 creature that is made of flesh that you can touch or see within 5 meters must make a Will saving throw. Creatures that can’t be charmed are immune to this spell.

On a failure, the creature begins a comic dance in place: shuffling, tapping its feet, and capering for the duration.

A dancing creature must use all its movement to dance without leaving its space and has disadvantage on Reflex saving throws and attack rolls. While the target is affected by this spell, other creatures have advantage on attack rolls against it.

As two actions, a dancing creature can make a Will saving throw to regain control of itself.

On a success, the spell ends.

24 hours

As two actions, you place an illusion on a creature or an object you touch so that divination spells reveal false information about it. The target can be a willing creature or an object that isn’t being carried or worn by another creature.

When you cast the spell, choose one or both of the following effects. The effect lasts for the duration. If you cast this spell on the same creature or object every day for 30 days, placing the same effect on it each time, the illusion lasts until it is dispelled.

False Aura. You change the way the target appears to spells and magical effects, such as detect magic, that detect magical auras. You can make a nonmagical object appear magical, a magical object appear nonmagical, or change the object’s magical aura so that it appears to belong to a specific theme that you choose. When you use this effect on an object, you can make the false magic apparent to any creature that handles the item.

Mask. You change the way the target appears to spells and magical effects that detect creature types, such as a acolyte’s Divine Sense or the trigger of a symbol spell. You choose a creature type and other spells and magical effects treat the target as if it were a creature of that type.

3 hours/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you shape the dreams of a creature known to you. You, or a willing creature you touch, enters a trance state, acting as a messenger.

While in the trance, the messenger is aware of its surroundings, but is immobilized and incapacitated. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw, which it does with disadvantage if if you have a body part, lock of hair, clipping from a nail, or similar portion of the creature’s body. If the creature isn’t on the same plane of existence as you, isn’t asleep, or doesn’t sleep, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 3d6 psychic damage and is echoes of the phantasmal monstrosity spawn a nightmare that lasts the duration of the target’s sleep and prevents the target from gaining any benefit from that rest.

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 minute/mana

As two actions, you craft an illusion that takes root in the mind of a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is a construct or an undead, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, you create a phantasmal object, creature, or other visible phenomenon of your choice that is no larger than a 2-meter cube and that is perceivable only to the target for the duration. The phantasm includes sound, temperature, and other stimuli, also evident only to the creature.

A creature can use an action to examine the phantasm, making an ability check using Insight (Intelligence) against your spell save Difficulty. If the check succeeds, the target realizes that the phantasm is an illusion, and the spell ends.

While a target is affected by the spell, the target treats the phantasm as if it were real. The target rationalizes any illogical outcomes from interacting with the phantasm. For example, a target attempting to walk across a phantasmal bridge that spans a chasm falls once it steps onto the bridge. If the target survives the fall, it still believes that the bridge exists and comes up with some other explanation for its fall—it was pushed, it slipped, or a strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) might have knocked it off.

An affected target is so convinced of the phantasm’s reality that it can even take damage from the illusion. A phantasm created to appear as a creature can attack the target. Similarly, a phantasm created to appear as fire, a pool of acid, or lava can burn the target. Each round on your turn, the phantasm can deal 1d6 psychic damage to the target if it is in the phantasm’s area or within 1 meter of the phantasm, provided that the illusion is of a creature or hazard that could logically deal damage, such as by attacking. The target perceives the damage as a type appropriate to the illusion.

concentration, 3 hours/mana

As two actions, you suggest a course of activity (limited to a sentence or two) and magically influence a creature within 5 meters that can hear and understand you. Creatures that can’t be charmed are immune to this effect. The suggestion must be worded in such a manner as to make the course of action sound reasonable. Asking the creature to stab itself, throw itself onto a spear, immolate itself, or do some other obviously harmful act automatically negates the effect of the spell.

The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it pursues the course of action you described to the best of its ability. The suggested course of action can continue for the entire duration. If the suggested activity can be completed in a shorter time, the spell ends when the subject finishes what it was asked to do.

You can also specify conditions that will trigger a special activity during the duration. For example, you might suggest that a group of soldiers give all their money to the first beggar they meet. If the condition isn’t met before the spell expires, the activity isn’t performed.

The spell ends if you or your allies attack, damage, or attempt to negatively effect the charmed creature in any way.

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, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you tap into the nightmares of a creature that you can touch or see within 20 meters, causing it to see manifestations of its deepest fears in a direction you choose for the duration, visible only to that creature. At the start of each of its turns for the duration, the creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 4d12 psychic damage and is frightened of the manifestations until the start of its next turn.

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

On a success, it takes half as much damage and and the effect ends.

On a critical success, it takes no damage and the effect ends.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 2d12 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.

  • Visions of Horror. You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when a creature makes an attack roll against you.

    The damage is reduced to 2d12 and additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 1d12 for each additional mana expended, instead of the normal increase.

concentration, 5 minute/mana

As two actions, you create an invisible, insubstantial, wall of energy twice as big as normal at a point you can see within 20 meters. 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. A creature attempting to move through the wall, willingly or unwillingly, must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is immune to being frightened, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, the creature can’t overcome its terror and can’t move through the wall

On a success, the creature can pass through the wall
