20 March, 2016

Welcome Spring!It is the Spring Equinox!  Welcome Spring!  And to celebrate, a new spell:

Blessing of the Spring

Components V, S, DF
Casting Time 1 hour
Range Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target Up to five creatures/level
Duration Instantaneous
Saving Throw Harmless (Will); Spell Resistance No

This spell can only be cast from the Spring Equinox to just before the Summer Solstice.

Those blessed by the spell gain a +1 sacred bonus to saves against disease, poisons and exhaustion, additionally they gain a +2 sacred bonus to any skill check related to farming and other husbandry tasks for the next 24-hours.

Special: Cast as a three hour ritual as part of a Festival performed on the Spring Equinox, the effects of the blessing last until the Summer Solstice.  Each assistant who can cast this spell that aids the primary caster increases the primary caster’s level by the assistants level +1 for each assistant (for example, a 7th level druid aided by four 3rd level assistants in the ritual would cast at 7 +(4 x 3) +4 = 23rd level and be able to bless a community of 115 people).

For D&D5:
Blessing of the Spring
2nd-level abjuration (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 hour

Range: 100 feet

Components: V, S, M (first leaves of spring)

Duration: 24-hours or until used (and see below)

You bless up to five creatures of your choice within range. Those blessed by the spell gain advantage on the first saving throw they make against disease, poisons and exhaustion, additionally they gain a advantage on their first any skill check related to farming and other husbandry tasks performed in the next 24-hours.

Special: Cast as a three hour ritual as part of a Festival performed on the Spring Equinox, the number of creatures effected doubles for each additional caster preforming the ritual, the effects of the blessing last until the Summer Solstice and each part (advantage on saving throw and advantage on skill roll) can be used once per day.

Note: A more practical and community oriented magic than usually seen, not terrible useful for venturers, but not entirely useless either, especially if they can get in on a festival!
