Spells

As an action, you sear the wounds of a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature is at full health, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 fire damage and can’t regain health until the end of its next turn. If the creature is alive and has 0 health, it becomes stable. If the creature is currently bleeding, the bleeding stops.

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

You can increase this spell’s damage by 1d6 when you reach 9th level (2d6) and 17th level (3d6).

As an action, you choose nonmagical flame that you can see within 10 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You affect it in one of the following ways:

  • You expand the flame 1 meter in one direction, provided that wood or other fuel is present in the new location.
  • You reduce the flames on any object within the cube. If you use this twice, you can extinguish the flames on an object.
  • You reduce the burning condition by 1 for a burning creature in the cube.
  • You cause the flames on a burning creature in the cube to burn a bit brighter. The creature takes 1d6 fire damage.
  • You double or halve the area of bright light and dim light cast by the flame, change its color, or both. The change lasts for 1 hour.
  • You cause simple shapes—such as the vague form of a creature, an inanimate object, or a location—to appear within the flames and animate as you like. The shapes last for 1 hour.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three 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 1d6 when you reach 9th level (2d6) and 17th level (3d6).

5 minutes

As an action, a flickering flame appears in your hand. The flame remains there for the duration and harms neither you nor your equipment. The flame sheds bright light in a 1-meter radius and dim light for an additional 1 meter.

When you cast this spell, or as an action on a later turn, you can form the flame into a blade and swing it at a creature or hurl the flame at a creature within 10 meters. Make a melee or ranged spell attack against the target.

On a hit, it takes 1d8 fire damage.

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

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

The spell ends if you dismiss it on your turn (no action required), if you cast it again, or if you end your turn without the flame in your hand. A flammable object hit by this spell ignites if it isn’t being worn or carried.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 9th level (2d8) and 17th level (3d8).

1 minute

As an action, you manifest a minor wonder, a sign of supernatural power, within 5 meters. You create one of the following magical effects.

  • Your voice booms up to three times as loud as normal.
  • You cause flames to flicker, brighten, dim, or change color.
  • You cause harmless tremors in the ground.
  • You create an instantaneous sound, such as a rumble of thunder, the cry of a raven, or ominous whispers.
  • You instantly light or snuff out a candle, a torch, or a small campfire.
  • 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).

1 minute/mana

As an action, you afflict a fiend that you have summoned and can see within 5 meters of you with bolts of vicious energy. These foul energies inflict terrible pain upon the fiend, torturing it to make it more pliant to your will. The creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it has disadvantage on ability checks and saving throws against you and if the creature demand payment for its services, reduce the payment by 20%.

Beings tortured by this spell quickly come to resent you, making them more likely to try to pervert your orders to malicious ends or try to seek retribution after their release.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana so any payment is reduced a further 20% (maximum 60% reduction, total).

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, ash falls in a cylinder twice as big as normal centered on a point within 20 meters. The area is heavily obscured.

3 hours/mana

As an action, you touch a willing creature who isn’t wearing armor, and its blood becomes as hard as iron upon contact with air 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).

As an action, you hold your hands with thumbs touching and fingers spread as a thin sheet of flames shoots forth from your outstretched fingertips. The fire ignites any flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried. Each creature in a cone or line must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d6 fire damage and is burning 2.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 4.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d6 and the burning level by 1 for each additional mana expended.

M (ruby dust worth 50 sp, consumed)

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

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

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

The spell can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by 30 centimeters of stone, 2 centimeters of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 1 meter of wood or dirt.

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.

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

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

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

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

While your emissary is within 20 meters of you:

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

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

You can’t have more than one emissary at a time. If you cast this spell while you already have an emissary, you instead cause it to adopt a new form from the above list.

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

Augment

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

concentration, 1 minute/mana

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

On a failure, a creature is affected.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On a failure, it takes 2d8 fire damage and is burning 2.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 4.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 2d8 and the burning level by 2 for each additional mana expended.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Augment

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

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

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

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

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

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can increase the damage by 1d4 for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to ignite an additional weapon you touch in flames.

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 hinder their effort. The creature makes the roll with disadvantage. 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 hinder one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As an action, flames wreathe a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d10 fire damage and is burning 3.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 6.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d10 and the burning level by 3 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

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

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

Augment

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

1 hour/mana

As an action, harmless flames race across your body. As an action, you can have the flames shed bright light in a 4-meter radius and dim light for an additional 4 meters. Additionally, you have resistance to fire damage, advantage on ability checks to end the burning condition, and ignore the effects of extreme heat 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 fire damage.

  • Cold Resistant. You can expend 1 additional mana so you have resistance to cold damage.


Dampen Fire

1

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

Augment

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

As an action, choose an area of nonmagical flame that you can see and that fits within a 1-meter cube within 10 meters. You can extinguish the fire in that area, and you create either fireworks or smoke when you do so. If a burning creature is in cube, the burning condition ends for it.

Fireworks. The target explodes with a dazzling display of colors. Each creature in a sphere twice as big as normal centered on the target must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or become blinded and deafened until the end of your next turn.

Smoke. Thick black smoke spreads out from the target in a sphere twice as big as normal, moving around corners. The area of the smoke is heavily obscured. The smoke persists for 1 minute or until a strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) disperses it.

Augment

You can increase the smoke’s radius by 2 meters for each additional mana expended.

As an action, a column of superheated air lifts you into the air, allowing you to fly up to 5 meters without provoking opportunity attacks. If you move at least 3 meters straight toward a creature, make a weapon attack against it.

On a hit, add 1d8 + your spellcasting ability fire damage to the attack’s damage roll and the creature is burning 1.

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 2d8 and the burning level by 2 for each additional mana expended.

1 minute/mana

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

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

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

As an action, you hurl two bolts of fire at two different creatures or objects within 20 meters. Make a ranged spell attack for each bolt.

On a hit, it takes 2d6 fire damage and is burning 2.

On a critical hit, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 4.

On a miss by 4 or less, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

Augment

You can create one additional bolt that targets any creature within range for each additional mana expended.

As an action, searing flames bursts out from you. Each creature other than you in a sphere centered on you must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d6 fire damage and is burning 2.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 4.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

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 2d6 for each additional mana expended and the burning level by for every two additional mana expended.

  • Blazing Inferno. You can expend 1 additional mana so the flames around you are continuous. The duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the flames spread out from 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 Fortitude saving throw. The damage is reduced to 2d6 and the burning level is reduced to 1, additional augments to the damage increase the damage by 1d6 for every two additional mana expended and the burning level by 1 for each additional mana expended, instead of the normal increase.

As an action, make a weapon attack.

On a hit, add 2d8 + your spellcasting ability fire damage to the attack’s damage roll and the creature is burning 1.

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 2d8 and the burning level by 2 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

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

Augment

You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended, though the spell then must be cast as two actions. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

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

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

Augment

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

concentration, 1 hour/mana

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

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 50 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). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can use an additional resource for each additional mana expended.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana to call forth another elemental.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As two actions, you curse up to two creatures you can touch or see within 10 meters and within 5 meters of each other. Each creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, whenever a creature makes an attack roll, ability check, or a saving throw before the spell ends, it rolls with disadvantage.

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, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you curse a creature that you touch. The creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it is becomes cursed for the duration.

When you cast this spell, choose the nature of the curse from the following options:

  • Choose one ability. While cursed, the creature has disadvantage on ability checks and saving throws made with that ability.
  • While cursed, the creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against you.
  • While cursed, the creature must make a Will saving throw at the start of each of its turns. If it fails, it wastes its actions that turn doing nothing.
  • While cursed, your attacks and spells deal an extra 1d8 necrotic damage to the creature.
  • While cursed, the creature is blinded or deafened (your choice).
  • While cursed, the creature can not regain health.

A remove curse spell ends this effect. At the GM’s option, you may choose an alternative curse effect, but it should be no more powerful than those described above. The GM has final say on such a curse’s effect.

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. You must touch each creature when you target them.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to bestow an additional curse.

  • Persistent. You can expend 1 additional mana to change the duration to 3 hours/mana.

  • Indefinite. You can expend 3 additional mana so the spell lasts until it is dispelled.

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

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

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

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

Augment

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

M (a vial of blood from a celestial or humanoid killed within the past 24 hours); concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you utter foul words and consume a vial of blood from a celestial or humanoid killed within the past 24 hours to summon a fiend in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The fiend is neutral to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends. The fiend can’t use any legendary actions or lair actions. Any spell cast by the fiend reduces your mana by the amount the fiend expends.

You can call two Abyssal Wretchs, Dretch, Imp, Maw Demon, Nupperibo, or Quasit

On each of your turns, you can try to issue a verbal command to the fiend (no action required by you). It obeys the command if the likely outcome is in accordance with its desires, especially if the result would draw you toward evil. Otherwise, you must make a Deception, Intimidation, or Persuasion check contested by its Insight check. You make the check with advantage if you say the fiend’s true name. If your check fails, the fiend is immune to your verbal commands for the duration of the spell and may become hostile, though it can still carry out your commands if it chooses. If your check succeeds, the fiend carries out your command—such as “attack my enemies,” “explore the room ahead,” or “bear this message to the queen”—until it completes the activity, at which point it returns to you to report having done so.

If your concentration ends before the spell reaches its full duration, the fiend doesn’t disappear if it has become immune to your verbal commands. Instead, it acts in whatever manner it chooses for 3d6 minutes, and then it disappears.

If you possess an individual fiend’s talisman, you can summon that fiend, and it obeys all your commands, with no Charisma checks required.

As part of casting the spell, you can form a circle on the ground with the blood used as a material component. The circle is large enough to encompass your space. While the spell lasts, the summoned fiend can’t cross the circle or harm it, and it can’t target anyone within it. Using the material component in this manner consumes it when the spell ends.

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

As two actions, a bright streak flashes from your pointing finger to a point within 20 meters and then blossoms with a low roar into an explosion of flame. The fire spreads around corners and ignites flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried. Each creature in a sphere centered on that point must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 6d6 fire damage and is burning 2.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is burning 4.

On a success, it takes half as much damage and is burning 1.

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 1d6 and the burning level by 1 for each additional mana expended.

  • Delayed Blast Fireball. You can expend 1 additional mana so the ball lingers at the point of origin as a glowing bead while you concentrate on the spell for up to 1 minute. If at the end of your turn the bead has not yet detonated, you can increase the damage by 1d6. When the spell ends, either because your concentration is broken or because you decide to end it, the bead explodes.

    If the glowing bead is touched before the interval has expired, the creature touching it must make a Reflex saving throw.

    On a failure, the spell ends immediately, causing the bead to explode.

    On a success, the creature can throw the bead up to 5 meters. When it strikes a creature or a solid object, the spell ends, and the bead explodes.

When you move the sphere, you can direct it over barriers up to 1 meter tall and jump it across pits up to 2 meters wide. The sphere ignites flammable objects not being worn or carried, and it sheds bright light in a 4-meter radius and dim light for an additional 4 meters.

3 hours/mana

The weapon is a weapon associated with your deity (as St. Cuthbert is known for his mace and Thor for his hammer).

When you cast this spell, you can designate any number of creatures you can see to be unaffected by it. A creature that moves within 1 meter of the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Fear. Affected creatures are frightened while in the area.

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

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

until dispelled

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you put a protective curse on an object or place dedicated to your god, such as a shrine, icon, cemetery gate, or so on. If the object is desecrated, then this spell is triggered and a curse is placed on the desecrators. Choose one of the following curses:

Bad Luck. The target is haunted by ill luck. It has disadvantage on attack rolls, ability checks, and saving throws.

Poverty. The target is cursed with poverty. Within 24 hours of gaining money or goods worth 10 sp or more, half of it will be lost, stolen, or destroyed.

Vulnerability. The target is easily injured. Other creatures have advantage on attack rolls against the target.

A remove curse spell cast with 5 or more mana ends this effect. At the GM’s option, you may choose an alternative curse effect, but it should be no more powerful than those described above. The GM has final say on such a curse’s effect.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

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

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

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

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