Circle of the Land: Mountain spells for druids

Level 2

Spider Climb(page)

Transmutation, level 2 spell typically available to sorcerers, warlocks, wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (a drop of bitumen and a spider)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

Until the spell ends, one willing creature you touch gains the ability to move up, down, and across vertical surfaces and upside down along ceilings, while leaving its hands free. The target also gains a climbing speed equal to its walking speed.

Spike Growth(page)

Transmutation, level 2 spell typically available to druids, rangers

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: 150 feet
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (seven sharp thorns or seven small twigs, each sharpened to a point)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

The ground in a 20-foot radius centered on a point within range twists and sprouts hard spikes and thorns. The area becomes difficult terrain for the duration. When a creature moves into or within the area, it takes 2d4 piercing damage for every 5 feet it travels. The transformation of the ground is camouflaged to look natural. Any creature that can't see the area at the time the spell is cast must make a Wisdom (Perception) check against your spell save DC to recognize the terrain as hazardous before entering it.


Level 3

Lightning Bolt(page)

Evocation, level 3 spell typically available to sorcerers, wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: Self (100-foot line)
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (a bit of fur and a rod of amber, crystal, or glass)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

A stroke of lightning forming a line 100 feet long and 5 feet wide blasts out from you in a direction you choose. Each creature in the line must make a Dexterity saving throw. A creature takes 8d6 lightning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

The lightning ignites flammable objects in the area that aren't being worn or carried.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.

Meld into Stone(page)

Transmutation, level 3 spell typically available to clerics, druids (ritual)

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic
  • Duration: 8 hours

You step into a stone object or surface large enough to fully contain your body, melding yourself and all the equipment you carry with the stone for the duration. Using your movement, you step into the stone at a point you can touch. Nothing of your presence remains visible or otherwise detectable by nonmagical senses.

While merged with the stone, you can't see what occurs outside it, and any Wisdom (Perception) checks you make to hear sounds outside it are made with disadvantage. You remain aware of the passage of time and can cast spells on yourself while merged in the stone. You can use your movement to leave the stone where you entered it, which ends the spell. You otherwise can't move.

Minor physical damage to the stone doesn't harm you, but its partial destruction or a change in its shape (to the extent that you no longer fit within it) expels you and deals 6d6 bludgeoning damage to you. The stone's complete destruction (or transmutation into a different substance) expels you and deals 50 bludgeoning damage to you. If expelled, you fall prone in an unoccupied space closest to where you first entered.


Level 4

Stoneskin(page)

Abjuration, level 4 spell typically available to druids, rangers, sorcerers, wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (diamond dust worth 100 gp, which the spell consumes)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

This spell turns the flesh of a willing creature you touch as hard as stone. Until the spell ends, the target has resistance to nonmagical bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

Stone Shape(page)

Transmutation, level 4 spell typically available to clerics, druids, wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: Touch
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (soft clay, which must be worked into roughly the desired shape of the stone object)
  • Duration: Instantaneous

You touch a stone object of Medium size or smaller or a section of stone no more than 5 feet in any dimension and form it into any shape that suits your purpose. So, for example, you could shape a large rock into a weapon, idol, or coffer, or make a small passage through a wall, as long as the wall is less than 5 feet thick. You could also shape a stone door or its frame to seal the door shut. The object you create can have up to two hinges and a latch, but finer mechanical detail isn't possible.


Level 5

Passwall(page)

Transmutation, level 5 spell typically available to wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: 30 feet
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (a pinch of sesame seeds)
  • Duration: 1 hour

A passage appears at a point of your choice that you can see on a wooden, plaster, or stone surface (such as a wall, a ceiling, or a floor) within range, and lasts for the duration. You choose the opening's dimensions: up to 5 feet wide, 8 feet tall, and 20 feet deep. The passage creates no instability in a structure surrounding it.

When the opening disappears, any creatures or objects still in the passage created by the spell are safely ejected to an unoccupied space nearest to the surface on which you cast the spell.

Wall of Stone(page)

Evocation, level 5 spell typically available to druids, sorcerers, wizards

  • Casting time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: Verbal, Somatic, Material (a small block of granite)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes

A nonmagical wall of solid stone springs into existence at a point you choose within range. The wall is 6 inches thick and is composed of ten 10-foot-by-10-foot panels. Each panel must be contiguous with at least one other panel. Alternatively, you can create 10-foot-by-20-foot panels that are only 3 inches thick.

If the wall cuts through a creature's space when it appears, the creature is pushed to one side of the wall (your choice). If a creature would be surrounded on all sides by the wall (or the wall and another solid surface), that creature can make a Dexterity saving throw. On a success, it can use its reaction to move up to its speed so that it is no longer enclosed by the wall.

The wall can have any shape you desire, though it can't occupy the same space as a creature or object. The wall doesn't need to be vertical or rest on any firm foundation. It must, however, merge with and be solidly supported by existing stone. Thus, you can use this spell to bridge a chasm or create a ramp.

If you create a span greater than 20 feet in length, you must halve the size of each panel to create supports. You can crudely shape the wall to create crenellations, battlements, and so on.

The wall is an object made of stone that can be damaged and thus breached. Each panel has AC 15 and 30 hit points per inch of thickness. Reducing a panel to 0 hit points destroys it and might cause connected panels to collapse at the DM's discretion.

If you maintain your concentration on this spell for its whole duration, the wall becomes permanent and can't be dispelled. Otherwise, the wall disappears when the spell ends.
