As an action, you hurl a small sphere of energy at a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d8 damage.

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

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The number rolled determines the damage type, as shown on the table.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d8 when you reach 9th level (2d8) and 17th level (3d8). When you roll multiple d8s, choose one of the d8s to determine the damage type.

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.

At higher levels

On a hit, it takes 1d8 piercing or slashing damage.

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

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

After you make the attack, your teeth or fingernails return to normal.

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).

(ritual); 1 day/mana

As an action, you use an animal to deliver a message. Choose a Tiny animal you can see within 5 meters, such as a squirrel, a blue jay, or a bat. You specify a location, which you must have visited, and a recipient who matches a general description, such as “a man or woman dressed in the uniform of the town guard” or “a red-haired dwarf wearing a pointed hat.” You also speak a message of up to twenty-five words. The target animal travels for the duration of the spell toward the specified location, covering about 80 kilometers per 24 hours for a flying messenger, or 40 kilometers for other animals.

When the messenger arrives, it delivers your message to the creature that you described, replicating the sound of your voice. The messenger speaks only to a creature matching the description you gave. If the messenger doesn’t reach its destination before the spell ends, the message is lost, and the animal makes its way back to where you cast this spell.

Augment

You can send an additional twenty-five words for each additional mana expended.

1 hour/mana

As an action, you adapt to life underwater. Choose fins or gills as the spell’s effect.

Fins. You grow fins and webbing between your fingers and toes; you gain a swimming speed of 5 meters for the duration.

Gills. You grow gills; you gain the ability to breathe underwater for the duration. You also retain your normal breathing pattern.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana to gain the benefit of both effects.

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

1 hour/mana

As an action, you alter your physical form to gain different characteristics. When you use this ability, you have 1 mana to choose one or more of the following effects. Each effect has its own mana cost, reducing the pool of mana.

Bear’s Endurance (1 mana). You gain 1d10 + your spellcasting ability temporary health, which is lost when the spell ends and you have advantage on Fortitude saving throws to resist dehydration, drowning, sleep deprivation, starvation, and suffocation and to march or labor for hours without rest.

Bull’s Strength (1 mana). You have advantage on Athletics and Brawn checks and your carrying capacity doubles.

Cat’s Grace (1 mana). You have advantage on Nimbleness checks and when calculating fall damage, reduce any falling distance by 4 meters if you aren’t incapacitated.

Camouflage (1 mana). Your skin and equipment take on the color and texture of nearby objects, including floors and walls, masking you from detection. For the duration, you have advantage on Stealth checks.

Echolocation (3 mana). You gain the ability to sense your surroundings by sound. For the duration, you have advantage on Perception checks that rely on hearing and you have blindsight out to a range of 5 meters. If you already have blindsight, its range increases by 5 meters. You can’t use this blindsight while deafened.

Keen Sense (1 mana). Choose eyes, ears, or nose. Your senses connected to that choice become more sensitive. You gain advantage on Perception checks that rely on hearing, sight, or smell.

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

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to target a willing creature you touch.

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 you spend 10 minutes to cast this spell, you call forth an animal from the wilderness to be 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 size suitable for you to ride: Medium if you are Small, or Large if you are Medium, but no other game statistics change.

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

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

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

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

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

Augment

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

As a reaction, which you use when you roll on the Wild Surge table, you can reroll.

8Force

As an action, you hurl an undulating, warbling mass of chaotic energy at a creature that you can touch or see within 20 meters. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d8 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.

Choose one of the d8s. The number it rolled determines the damage type, as shown on the table.

If you roll an 8, the chaotic energy leaps from the target to a different creature of your choice within 5 meters of it who must also make a saving throw. The new damage roll could cause the chaotic energy to leap again. A creature can be affected only once by each casting of this spell.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 3d8 for each additional mana expended, but only the original 3d8 are used to determine the damage type and whether the bolt bounces.

As an action, a weapon you touch becomes infused with chaotic energy. For the duration, the weapon deals an extra 1d4 damage when it hits. Roll a d8 to determine the attack’s damage type, as shown below.

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 infuse an additional weapon you touch with chaotic energy.

1 hour/mana

As an action, you grow tiny hooked claws that allow you to climb. You gain a climbing speed equal to your walking speed for the duration.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so you can move up, down, and across vertical surfaces and upside down along ceilings, while leaving your hands free.

  • 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 shoot writhing strands of webbing that wrap up a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters like a mummy. The creature must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it is restrained for the duration.

A creature restrained by the cocoon, 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.

The cocoon has 10 Defense, 1 Soak, and 15 Health. It can’t be dispelled by dispel magic. When reduced to 0 health, the cocoon is ripped open, which frees the target.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 or more mana so while restrained by this spell, the creature takes 2d8 bludgeoning damage at the start of each of its turns for each additional mana expended. You can also increase the cocoon’s Defense by 2, and increase the cocoon’s Health by 15 for each additional mana expended.

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

As a reaction, which you use when you roll a die to determine if a spell causes a Wild Surge, you can compel wild energies forth. Roll on the Wild Surge table to create a random magical effect.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell as a reaction, which you use when you see a creature within 10 meters of you casting a spell, you cause wild magic to pour out from the creature. The creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the creature rolls on the Wild Surge table to create a random magical effect.

As an action, you assault and twist a creature’s mind, spawning delusions and provoking uncontrolled actions. Choose a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The target must succeed on a Will saving throw or it is confused until the end of its next turn.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration and the creature is confused 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 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.

1 minute/mana

As an action, a magical field appears around you, glowing with a chaotic blast of multicolored hues. For the duration, any creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against you.

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.

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.

(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.

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 an action, describe or name a specific kind of animal. You learn the direction and distance to the closest creature of that kind within 10 kilometers, if any are present.

(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, you grow claws, fangs, spines, horns, or a different natural weapon of your choice for the duration. Some examples could be that your hands turn into claws, two of your teeth turn into tusks, or you grow a whip-like tail. Your natural weapon, which you can use to make unarmed strikes that you are capable with, deal 1d6 bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage, as appropriate to the natural weapon you chose.

Your unarmed strikes become magical, if they aren’t already.

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

  • You can create two additional steeds for each additional mana expended.

  • Water Steed. You can expend 1 additional mana so the steed can walk on water (per the water walk spell).

  • Flying Steed. You can expend 1 additional mana so the steed can fly at its speed.

As an action, multicolored rays of light flash from your hand. Each ray is a different color and has a different power and purpose. Each creature in a cone must make a Reflex saving throw. For each target, roll a d8 to determine which color ray affects it.

1. Red. The fire ignites any flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried. On a failure, a creature takes 3d6 fire damage and is burning 2. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage.

2. Orange. On a failure, a creature takes 2d8 acid damage immediately and additional acid damage equal to half the amount of acid damage dealt at the end of its next turn and its armor or natural armor is corroded 1 until the end of your next turn. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage.

3. Yellow. On a failure, a creature takes 3d8 lightning damage and it can’t take reactions until the end of its next turn. On a success, it takes half as much damage. The lightning ignites flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried.

4. Green. On a failure, a creature takes 2d10 poison damage and is poisoned until the end of its next turn. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage.

5. Blue. On a failure, a creature takes 3d6 cold damage and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn. On a success, a creature takes half as much damage.

6. Indigo. On a failure, a creature is slowed 1 for 1 minute. A creature can make a Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns. On a success, the slow ends.

7. Violet. On a failure, a creature is blinded for 1 minute. A creature can make a Fortitude saving throw at the end of each of its turns. On a success, the blindness ends.

8. Special. A creature is struck by two rays. Roll twice more, rerolling any 8.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so a creature that fails its saving throw rolls on the Wild Surge table to create a random magical effect.

(ritual); concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, no sound can pass through a sphere that surrounds you. Until the spell ends, the sphere moves with you, centered on you.

Any creature or object entirely inside the sphere is immune to concussion damage that originates outside the sphere.

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

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so no sound can be created within the sphere. Any creature or object entirely inside the sphere is immune to concussion damage, creatures are deafened while entirely inside the sphere, and casting a spell that requires words to be spoken is impossible inside the sphere.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell centered on a point within 20 meters.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana to change the duration to 5 minutes/mana.

(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.

3 hours/mana

As an action, your skin becomes as tough as leather until the spell ends. Your Defense becomes 13 + half your Aptitude Bonus (min 1) + your Dexterity (max 4). The spell ends if you don armor or if you dismiss the spell on your turn (no action required).

(ritual); 1 hour/mana

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

On a failed save the creature becomes offensive to animals for the duration. Animals become distraught and aggressive in the victim’s presence—horses buck, dogs snap and bark, bulls charge, and so on.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, you establish a telepathic link with one animal that you can touch or see within 10 meters that is friendly to you or charmed by you. Until the spell ends, the telepathic link is active while you and the animal are within line of sight of each other. Through the link, the animal can understand your telepathic messages to it, and it can telepathically communicate simple emotions and concepts back to you.

Additionally, you can use an action to see through the animal’s eyes and hear what it hears, and continue to do so until you use an action to return to your normal senses. While perceiving through the animal’s senses, you gain the benefits of any special senses possessed by the animal, though you are blinded and deafened to your own surroundings.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • Dominate. You can expend 1 additional mana to take control of the animal. The telepathic link is active as long as the two of you are on the same plane of existence. You can use this telepathic link to issue commands to the animal while you are conscious (no action required), which it does its best to obey. You can specify a simple and general course of action, such as “Attack that creature,” “Run over there,” or “Fetch that object.” If the animal completes the order and doesn’t receive further direction from you, it defends and preserves itself to the best of its ability.

    You can use two actions to take total and precise control of the animal. Until the end of your next turn, the animal takes only the actions you choose, and doesn’t do anything that you don’t allow it to do. During this time, you can also cause the animal to use a reaction, but this requires you to use your own reaction as well.

  • Unwilling. You can expend 1 additional mana to target an unwilling animal. The duration changes to 1 minute/mana and the animal must succeed on a Will saving throw or the spell takes effect. If you or creatures that are friendly to you are fighting it, it has advantage on the saving throw.

    Each time the animal takes damage, it makes a new Will saving throw against the spell. If the saving throw succeeds, the spell ends.

5 minutes/mana

As an action, webs extend from your outstretched arm. Until the spell ends, you can cause the webs to lash out on each of your turns as an action.

Creature. A creature within 20 meters of you must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or be pulled up to 5 meters toward you. A Large or larger creature has advantage on this saving throw. If the creature is willing, it can allow itself to be pulled.

Unattended Object. An unattended object within 20 meters of you is pulled up to 5 meters towards you; if this moves it into your square, you may grasp the item, although you must have a free hand to do so.

Surface. If you target an immovable object within 20 meters of you such as an object bolted to the floor, a building wall, floor, or ceiling, you can move up to 10 meters towards the target. If you end your movement at a climbable location, such as a wall or ledge, you can attempt an Athletics check to grab hold, or pull yourself over the edge in the case of a ledge. If you fail that check you begin falling. You can move yourself up to 10 meters as an action on your turn.

If you pull yourself towards a surface while being grappled, any creature that is grappling you must make a Brawn check against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, the creature can choose to prevent you from moving or to be pulled along with you. A creature cannot be pulled along with you if it is larger than you.

On a failure, the creature must let go of the grapple.

You can cause the webs to release at any time (no action required by you). They retract instantly.

The webs are flammable. Any webs exposed to fire burn away in 1 round.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana as a reaction, which you use when you or a creature within 10 meters of you falls. Webs shoot out to a solid surface within 10 meters, or the falling creature, and lower you or the creature up to 20 meters from the point of attachment toward the ground.

  • Swinging Webs. You can expend 1 additional mana so the webs can attach themselves to your torso, leaving your arms and legs unhindered. The webs automatically attach to solid surfaces (such as a building, a wall, or a tree) at least 3 meters above you and within 10 meters of you and shift with you, growing and retracting as you move from surface to surface. If any of the webs are destroyed, a new web immediately grows to take its place.

    For the duration, as long as you are within 10 meters of a solid surface that is at least 3 meters above you, you have a flying speed of 10 meters, which can’t be reduced by nonmagical means. Additionally, you have advantage on saving throws made against effects that would push or pull you. When the spell ends, if you are near a solid surface, the webs gently lower you to the ground as they fade away.

As a reaction, which you use when you make an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, reflections of yourself swarm about you, whispering suggestions. 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 minute/mana

As an action, an invisible sphere of wild magic twice as big as normal surrounds you. Until the spell ends, the sphere moves with you, centered on you.

Any spell cast from inside the sphere must roll on the Wild Surge table to create a random magical effect.

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

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana to cast the spell centered on a point within 20 meters, where it remains for the duration.

  • Chaos Sphere. You can expend 1 additional mana so the area within the sphere is filled with chaotic energy. The sphere is normal size and the duration changes to 1 minute/mana, concentration. A creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Will saving throw.

    On a failure, a creature is confused until the end of its next turn.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, you cause wild magic to pour out from a creature. Choose a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. At the start of each of its turns for the duration, the creature must make a Will saving throw.
