Cleric Domain Spells

Clerics can gain the following domain spells by selecting the Domain Initiate or Advanced Domain feat.

Contents

Agile Feet Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Transmutation

Domain travel

Cast [one-action] somatic; Duration until the end of the current turn


The blessings of your god make your feet faster and your movements more fluid. You gain a +5-foot status bonus to your Speed and ignore difficult terrain. As part of casting agile feet, you can Stride or Step; you can instead Burrow, Climb, Fly, or Swim if you have the appropriate Speed.

Appearance of Wealth Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Illusion

Domain wealth

Cast [two-actions] material, verbal

Range 30 feet; Area 5-foot burst

Saving Throw Will; Duration sustained up to 1 minute


You create a brief vision of immense wealth filling the spell’s area. Each creature within 20 feet of the area that could be enticed by material wealth must attempt a Will saving throw. A creature that enters the area automatically disbelieves the illusion, and disbelieving the illusion ends any fascinated condition imposed by the spell. As long as you Sustain the Spell, other creatures react to the treasure like they would any other illusion, but they are not at risk of becoming fascinated.

Critical Success The creature disbelieves the illusion and is unaffected by it.

Success The creature is fascinated by the wealth until it has completed its first action on its next turn.

Failure The creature is fascinated by the illusion.

Artistic Flourish Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Transmutation

Domain creation

Cast [two-actions] material, somatic

Range 15 feet; Targets 1 item or work of art that fits entirely within the range; Duration 10 minutes


You transform the target to make it match your artisanal and artistic vision. If you have expert proficiency in Crafting, the item grants a +1 item bonus to attack rolls if it’s a weapon or skill checks if it’s a skill tool. The target is a beautiful and impressive piece for its new quality, but the effect is obviously temporary, so its monetary value doesn’t change.

When you cast this spell, any previous artistic flourish you had cast ends.


Heightened (7th) If you have master proficiency in Crafting, the item grants a +2 item bonus instead.

Heightened (10th) If you have legendary proficiency in Crafting, the item grants a +3 item bonus instead.

Athletic Rush Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Transmutation

Domain might

Cast [one-action] somatic; Duration 1 round


Your body fills with physical power and skill. You gain a +10- foot status bonus to Speed and a +2 status bonus to Athletics checks. As a part of Casting this Spell, you can use a Stride, Leap, Climb, or Swim action. The spell’s bonuses apply during that action.

Bit of Luck Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Divination Fortune

Domain luck

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 willing creature; Duration 1 minute


You tilt the scales of luck slightly to protect a creature from disaster. When the target would attempt a saving throw, it can roll twice and use the better result. Once it does this, the spell ends.

If you cast bit of luck again, any previous bit of luck you cast that’s still in effect ends. After a creature has been targeted with bit of luck, it becomes temporarily immune for 24 hours.

Blind Ambition Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Emotion Enchantment Mental

Domain ambition

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 60 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will; Duration 10 minutes


You strengthen a target’s ambition, increase its resentment of allies, and make its allegiances more susceptible to change.

The target must attempt a Will save.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target takes a –1 status penalty to its saving throws and other defenses against attempts to Coerce it, Request something of it, or use mental effects to convince it to do something (such as a suggestion spell). This penalty applies only if the target is being encouraged to advance its own ambitions.

Failure As success, but the penalty is –2.

Critical Failure The target is overcome with ambition, taking whatever actions would advance its own agenda over those of anyone else, even without attempts to convince it.

Captivating Adoration Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Emotion Enchantment Mental Visual

Domain passion

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Area 15-foot emanation

Saving Throw Will; Duration 1 minute


You become intensely entrancing, and creatures are distracted by you as long as they remain within the area. You can exclude any creatures you choose from the effects.

When a creature enters the area for the first time, it must attempt a Will saving throw. If a creature leaves and reenters, it uses the results of its original save.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected and temporarily immune for 1 hour.

Success The creature is fascinated with you for its next action, then is temporarily immune for 1 hour.

Failure The creature is fascinated with you.

Critical Failure The creature is fascinated with you, and its attitude toward you improves by one step.


Heightened (+1) Increase the size of the emanation by 15 feet.

Charming Touch Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Emotion Enchantment Incapacitation Mental

Domain passion

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range touch; Targets 1 humanoid creature that could find you attractive

Saving Throw Will; Duration 10 minutes


You infuse your target with attraction, causing it to act friendlier toward you. The target attempts a Will save. It gains a +4 circumstance bonus to this save if you or your allies recently threatened or were hostile to it.

Critical Success The target is unaffected and aware you tried to charm it.

Success The target is unaffected but thinks your spell was something harmless instead of charming touch, unless it identifies the spell (usually with Identify Magic).

Failure The target’s attitude becomes friendly toward you. If it was friendly, it becomes helpful. It can’t use hostile actions against you.

Critical Failure The target is helpful and can’t use hostile actions against you.


You can dismiss the spell. If you use hostile actions against the target, the spell ends. After the spell ends, the target doesn’t necessarily realize it was charmed unless its friendship with you or the actions you convinced it to take clash with its expectations, which could potentially allow you to convince the target to continue being your friend via mundane means.


Heightened (4th) You can target any type of creature, not just humanoids, as long as it could find you attractive.

Cloak of Shadow Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Darkness Evocation Shadow

Domain darkness

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range touch; Targets 1 willing creature; Duration 1 minute


You drape the target in a mantle of swirling shadows that make it harder to see. The cloak reduces bright light within a 20-foot emanation to dim light. This is a form of magical darkness and can therefore overcome non-magical Light or attempt to counteract magical Light.

The target can use concealed condition gained from the shadows to Hide, though observant creatures can still follow the moving aura of shadow, making it difficult for the target to become completely undetected. The target can use an Interact action to remove the cloak and leave it behind as a decoy, where it remains, reducing Light for the rest of the spell’s duration. If anyone picks up the cloak after it’s been removed by the original target, the cloak evaporates and the spell ends.

Commanding Lash Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Enchantment Incapacitation Mental

Domain tyranny

Cast [one-action] verbal

Requirements Your most recent action dealt damage to a target.

Range 100 feet; Targets A creature you dealt damage to on your most recent action.

Competitive Edge Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Emotion Enchantment Mental

Domain ambition

Cast [one-action] verbal; Duration sustained up to 1 minute


Your competitiveness drives you to prove yourself against the opposition. You gain a +1 status bonus to attack rolls and skill checks. If an enemy within 20 feet critically succeeds at an attack roll or skill check, your status bonus increases to +3 attack rolls or that specific skill check (whichever the foe critically succeeded at) for 1 round.


Heightened (7th) Increase the base bonus to +2 and the increased bonus after an enemy critically succeeds to +4.

Cry of Destruction Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Evocation Sonic

Domain destruction

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Area 15-foot cone

Saving Throw basic Fortitude


Your voice booms, smashing what’s in front of you. Each creature and unattended object in the area takes 1d8 Sonic damage. If you already dealt damage to an enemy this turn with a Strike or spell, increase the damage dice from this spell to d12s.

Darkened Eyes Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Darkness Transmutation

Domain darkness

Failure As success, but the duration is 1 minute.

Critical Failure As success, but the duration is 1 minute, and the target is also blinded for the duration. It can attempt a new save at the end of each of its turns. If it succeeds, it’s no longer blinded, but its darkvision or Low-light vision remains suppressed.

Dazzling Flash Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Evocation Light Visual

Domain sun

Cast [two-actions] material, verbal

Area 15-foot cone

Saving Throw Fortitude


You raise your religious symbol and create a blinding flash of Light. Each creature in the area must attempt a Fortitude save.

Heightened (3rd) The area increases to a 30-foot cone.

Death’s Call Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Necromancy

Domain death

Cast [reaction] verbal

Trigger A living creature within 20 feet of you dies, or an undead creature within 20 feet of you is destroyed.

Duration 1 minute


Seeing another pass from this world to the next invigorates you.

You gain temporary Hit Points equal to the triggering creature’s level plus your Wisdom modifier. If the triggering creature was undead, double the number of temporary Hit Points you gain .

These last for the duration of the spell, and the spell ends if all the temporary Hit Points are depleted earlier.

Delusional Pride Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Emotion Enchantment Mental

Domain confidence

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will; Duration varies


You make the target overconfident, leading it to ascribe failure to external factors. If the target fails at an attack roll or skill check, it takes a –1 status penalty to attack rolls and skill checks until the end of its turn (or the end of its next turn, if it attempted the roll outside its turn). If the creature fails a second time while taking this penalty, the penalty increases to –2. The duration depends on the target’s Will save. After attempting its save, the creature becomes temporarily immune for 24 hours.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The duration is 1 round.

Failure The duration is 10 minutes.

Critical Failure The duration is 24 hours.

Destructive Aura Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Evocation

Domain destruction

Heightened (+2) Reduce the resistances by an additional 2.

Disperse Into Air Focus 4

Uncommon Air Cleric Polymorph Transmutation

Domain air

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger You take damage from an enemy or a hazard.


After taking the triggering damage, you transform into air. Until the end of the current turn, you can’t be attacked or targeted, you don’t take up space, you can’t act, and any auras or emanations you have are suppressed. At the end of the turn, you re-form in any space you can occupy within 15 feet of where you were when you dispersed. Any auras or emanations you had are restored as long as their duration didn’t run out while you were dispersed.

Downpour Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Evocation Water

Domain water Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 120 feet; Area 30-foot burst; Duration 1 minute


You call forth a torrential downpour, which extinguishes nonmagical flames. Creatures in the area are concealed and gain fire resistance 10.

Dreamer’s Call Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Enchantment Incapacitation Mental

Domain dreams

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will; Duration until the end of the target’s next turn


The target becomes distracted and suggestible, inundated by vivid daydreams.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target’s attention wavers. It becomes flat-footed and fascinated by its daydreams.

Failure As success, except that you appear in the dream and give a suggestion. This can be to approach you, run away (as if it had the fleeing condition), Release what it’s holding, Drop Prone, or stand in place. The creature follows this course of action as its first action after you Cast the Spell.

Critical Failure As failure, but the target follows the course of action for as many actions as possible for the spell’s duration, and it does nothing else.

Enduring Might Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain might

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger An attack or effect would deal damage to you.


Your own might mingles with divine power to protect you. You gain resistance equal to 8 plus your Strength modifier against all damage from the triggering attack or effect.

Eradicate Undeath Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Necromancy Positive

Face In The Crowd Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Illusion Visual

Domain cities

Cast [one-action] somatic; Duration 1 minute

Fire Ray Focus 1

Uncommon Attack Cleric Evocation Fire

Flame Barrier Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain fire

Cast [reaction] verbal

Trigger An effect would deal fire damage to either you or an ally within range.

Range 60 feet; Targets the creature that would take fire damage


You swiftly deflect incoming flames. The target gains fire resistance 15 against the triggering effect.

Forced Quiet Focus 1

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain secrecy

Cast [two-actions] material, somatic

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Fortitude; Duration varies


You quiet the target’s voice, preventing it from giving away valuable secrets. This doesn’t prevent the target from talking or providing verbal spell components, but no creature more than 10 feet away can hear its whispers without succeeding at a Perception check against your spell DC, which might interfere with auditory or linguistic effects as well as communication. The spell’s duration depends on the target’s Fortitude save. After attempting its save, the target becomes temporarily immune for 24 hours.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The duration is 1 round.

Failure The duration is 1 minute.

Critical Failure The duration is 10 minutes.

Glimpse the Truth Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Divination Revelation

Domain truth

Cast [one-action] somatic

Area 30-foot emanation; Duration 1 round


Divine insight lets you see things as they truly are. The GM attempts a secret counteract check against each illusion that is at least partially within the area. Instead of counteracting the illusion, you see through it (for instance, if the check succeeds against an illusory disguise spell, you see the creature’s true form but illusory disguise doesn’t end).

The area moves with you for the duration of the spell, and the GM attempts a secret counteract check each time a new illusion is within the area.


Heightened (7th) You can allow everyone to see through illusions you succeed against, not just yourself.

Healer’s Blessing Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Necromancy

Domain Healing Cast [one-action] verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 willing living creature; Duration 1 minute


Your words bless a creature with an enhanced connection to Positive energy. When the target regains Hit Points from a Healing spell, it regains 1 additional Hit Point.

The target regains additional Hit Points from healer’s blessing only the first time it regains HP from a given Healing spell, so a spell that heals the creature repeatedly over a duration would restore additional Hit Points only once.


Heightened (+1) The additional Healing increases by 2 HP.

Hurtling Stone Focus 1

Uncommon Attack Cleric Earth Evocation

Domain earth

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range 60 feet; Targets 1 creature


You evoke a magical stone and throw it, with your god’s presence guiding your aim. Make a spell attack roll against the target. The stone deals bludgeoning damage equal to 1d6 plus your Strength modifier.

Heightened (+1) The stone’s damage increases by 1d6.

Know the Enemy Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Divination Fortune

Domain knowledge

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger You roll initiative and can see a creature, you succeed at an attack roll against a creature, or a creature fails a saving throw against one of your spells.


Use a Recall Knowledge action, rolling the appropriate skill check to identify the triggering creature’s abilities. You can roll your check twice and use the better result.

Localized Quake Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Earth Transmutation

Domain earth

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Area 15-foot emanation or 15-foot cone

Saving Throw Reflex


You shake the earth, toppling nearby creatures. Choose whether the spell’s area is a 15-foot emanation or a 15-foot cone when you cast it. Each creature in the area standing on solid ground may take 4d6 bludgeoning damage and must attempt a Reflex saving throw.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected.

Success The creature takes half damage.

Failure The creature takes full damage and falls prone.

Critical Failure The creature takes double damage and falls prone.


Heightened (+1) Increase the damage by 2d6.

Lucky Break Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Divination Fortune

Domain luck

Cast [reaction] verbal

Trigger You fail (but don’t critically fail) a saving throw.


Reroll the saving throw and use the better result. You then become temporarily immune for 10 minutes.

Magic’s Vessel Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Enchantment

Domain magic

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range touch; Targets 1 creature; Duration sustained up to 1 minute


A creature becomes a receptacle for pure magical energy sent by your deity. The target gains a +1 status bonus to saving throws. Each time you Cast a Spell from your spell slots, you automatically Sustain this spell and grant its target resistance to damage from spells until the start of your next turn. This resistance is equal to the level of the spell you cast.

Malignant Sustenance Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Necromancy Negative

Domain undeath

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range touch; Targets 1 willing undead creature; Duration 1 minute


You embed a seed of negative energy in an undead creature, restoring its unnatural vigor. The target gains fast Healing 7.

This Healing comes from negative energy, so it heals the undead rather than damaging it.


Heightened (+1) The fast Healing increases by 2.

Moonbeam Focus 1

Uncommon Attack Cleric Evocation Fire Light

Domain moon

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 120 feet; Targets 1 creature or object


You shine a ray of moonlight. Make a spell attack roll. The beam of Light deals 1d6 fire damage. Moonbeam deals silver damage for the purposes of weaknesses, resistances, and the like.

Critical Success The beam deals double damage, and the target is dazzled for 1 minute.

Success The beam deals full damage, and the target is dazzled for 1 round.


Heightened (+1) The ray’s damage increases by 1d6.

Mystic Beacon Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Evocation

Domain magic

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 willing creature; Duration until the start of your next turn


The next damaging or Healing spell the target casts before the start of your next turn deals damage or restores Hit Points as if the spell were heightened 1 level higher than its actual level. The spell otherwise functions at its actual level. Once the target casts the spell, mystic beacon ends.

Nature’s Bounty Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Conjuration Plant Positive

Domain nature

Cast [one-action] somatic

Requirements You have a free hand.


A palm-sized raw fruit or vegetable appears in your open hand.

You choose the specific type of food. A creature can consume the food with an Interact action to regain 3d10+12 Hit Points and be nourished as if it had eaten a meal. If uneaten, the food rots and crumbles to dust after 1 minute.


Heightened (+1) The Hit Points restored increase by 6.

Overstuff Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Transmutation

Domain indulgence

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 living creature

Saving Throw Fortitude


Huge amounts of food and drink fill the target. It receives a full meal’s worth of nourishment and must attempt a Fortitude save.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target is sickened 1, but if it spends an action to end the condition, it succeeds automatically.

Failure The target is sickened 1.

Critical Failure The target is sickened 2.

A target sickened by this spell takes a –10-foot status penalty to its Speed until it’s no longer sickened.

Perfected Form Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric Fortune

Domain perfection

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger You fail a saving throw against a morph, petrification, or polymorph effect.


Reroll the saving throw and use the better result.

Perfected Mind Focus 1

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain perfection

Cast [one-action] verbal


You meditate upon perfection to remove all distractions from your mind. Attempt a new Will save against one mental effect currently affecting you that required a Will save. Use the result of this new save to determine the outcome of the mental effect, unless the new save would have a worse result than the original save, in which case nothing happens. You can use perfected mind against a given effect only once.

Positive Luminance Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Light Necromancy Positive

Domain sun

Cast [one-action] somatic; Duration 1 minute


Drawing life force into yourself, you become a beacon of Positive energy. You glow with bright light in a 10-foot emanation, and you gain an internal pool of Light called a luminance reservoir, which begins with a value of 4. At the start of each of your turns, you can use a free action to increase the luminance reservoir by 4. If you do, the radius of your Light increases by 10 feet.

If an undead creature damages you with an attack or spell while it’s within the area of your light, that creature takes positive damage equal to half your luminance reservoir value.

It takes this damage only the first time it damages you in a round.

You can dismiss this Spell. When you do, you can target a creature within your Light and direct the Positive energy into it. The target must be a willing living creature or an 394 undead creature. This heals a living target or damages an undead target by an amount equal to your luminance reservoir’s value.

When you cast Positive luminance, any other Positive luminance spell you already had in effect ends.


Heightened (+1) Both the initial value of your luminance reservoir and the amount you gain each turn increase by 1.

Precious Metals Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Transmutation

Domain wealth

Cast [one-action] material

Range touch; Targets 1 metal weapon, up to 10 pieces of metal or metal-tipped ammunition, 1 suit of metal armor, or up to 1 bulk of metal material (such as coins); Duration 1 minute


Your deity blesses base metals to transform them into Precious materials. The target item transforms from its normal metal into cold iron, copper, gold, iron, silver, or steel. An item transmuted in this way deals damage according to its new material. For example, a steel sword transmuted to cold iron would deal additional damage to a creature with a weakness to cold iron.

This change is clearly magical and temporary, so the item’s monetary value doesn’t change; you couldn’t transmute copper coins to gold and use those coins to purchase something or as a cost for a spell.


Heightened (8th) Add adamantine and mithral to the list of metals you can transform the item into.

Protector’s Sacrifice Focus 1

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain protection

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger An ally within 30 feet takes damage.

Range 30 feet


You protect your ally by suffering in their stead. Reduce the damage the triggering ally would take by 3. You redirect this damage to yourself, but your immunities, weaknesses, resistances and so on do not apply.

You aren’t subject to any conditions or other effects of whatever damaged your ally (such as poison from a venomous bite). Your ally is still subject to those effects even if you redirect all of the triggering damage to yourself.


Heightened (+1) The damage you redirect increases by 3.

Protector’s Sphere Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric

Domain protection

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Area 15-foot emanation; Duration sustained up to 1 minute


A protective aura emanates out from you, safeguarding you and your allies. You gain resistance 3 to all damage. Your allies also gain this resistance while they are within the area.


Heightened (+1) The resistance increases by 1.

Pulse of the City Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Divination Scrying

Domain cities

Cast [three-actions] material, somatic, verbal

Range 25 miles


You tap into the zeitgeist of the nearest settlement in range (if any). You learn the name of the settlement, and you can utter a special word to learn a brief summary of one significant event happening in the settlement. Choose one of the following words, which indicates the type of people involved and type of event you learn about.

  • Wardens city guards, barristers, and judges (criminal reports, busts, changes in routines, legal trials)
  • Titles nobles and politicians (high society weddings, elite soirées, political rallies)
  • Masses common folk and merchants (gathering mobs, major sales)

When uttering your word, you can exclude events you already know about, whether you know about them from this spell or from other experiences. If you cast pulse of the city again within 24 hours, you can say “echo” instead of another word to get an update on the event you learned about the last time you Cast the Spell.

Pulse of the city reveals only publicly available or observable information. You never learn clandestine movements or other details people are specifically trying to hide. The spell is also notoriously bad at overcoming magic meant to avoid detection; it automatically fails to reveal information about events involving creatures, places, or objects affected by spells that could prevent or counteract pulse of the city (such as nondetection).


Heightened (5th) The range increases to 100 miles.

Pushing Gust Focus 1

Uncommon Air Cleric Conjuration

Domain air

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 500 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Fortitude


Giving the air a push, you buffet the target with a powerful gust of wind; it must attempt a Fortitude save.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target is pushed 5 feet away from you.

Failure The target is pushed 10 feet away from you.

Critical Failure The target is pushed 10 feet away from you and knocked prone.

Read Fate Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Divination Prediction

Domain fate

Cast 1 minute (material, somatic, verbal)

Range 10 feet; Targets 1 creature other than you


You attempt to learn more about the target’s fate in the short term, usually within the next day for most prosaic creatures, or the next hour or less for someone likely to have multiple rapid experiences, such as someone actively adventuring.

You learn a single enigmatic word connected to the creature’s fate in that time frame. Fate is notoriously inscrutable, and the word isn’t necessarily meant to be taken at face value, so the meaning is often clear only in hindsight. The GM rolls a secret DC 6 flat check. If the creature’s fate is too uncertain, or on a failed flat check, the spell yields the word “inconclusive.” Either way, the creature is then temporarily immune for 24 hours.

Rebuke Death Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Healing Necromancy Positive

Domain Healing Cast [one-action] to [three-actions] (somatic)

Area 20-foot emanation; Targets 1 living creature per action spent to cast this spell


You snatch creatures from the jaws of death. You can spend 1 to 3 actions Casting this Spell, and you can target a number of creatures equal to the actions spent. Each target regains 3d6 Hit Points. If the target had the dying condition, coming back from dying due to this Healing doesn’t increase its wounded condition.


Heightened (+1) Increase the Healing by 1d6.

Retributive Pain Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric Mental Nonlethal

Domain pain

Cast [reaction] somatic

Trigger A creature in range damages you.

Range 30 feet; Targets the triggering creature

Saving Throw basic Fortitude


You vengefully reflect your pain upon your tormentor. The target takes mental damage equal to half the amount it dealt to you when it triggered the spell.

Safeguard Secret Focus 4

Uncommon Abjuration Cleric Mental

Domain secrecy

Cast 1 minute (somatic, verbal)

Range 10 feet; Targets you and any number of willing allies; Duration 1 hour


You ensure a secret remains safe from prying spies. Choose one piece of information that at least some of the targets know; you can target a creature only if it remains within range for the full minute during which you Cast the Spell. The spell grants those who know the piece of knowledge you have chosen a +4 status bonus to skill checks (typically Deception checks) to conceal this knowledge and to saving throws against spells that specifically attempt to obtain this knowledge from them and effects that would force them to reveal it.

If you Cast this spell again, any previous safeguard secret you had cast ends.

Savor the Sting Focus 1

Uncommon Attack Cleric Enchantment Mental Nonlethal

Domain pain

Cast [one-action] somatic

Range touch; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Will


You inflict pain upon the target and revel in their anguish. This deals 1d4 mental damage and 1d4 persistent mental damage; the target must attempt a Will save. As long as the target is taking persistent damage from this spell, you gain a +1 status bonus to attack rolls and skill checks against the target.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target takes half damage and no persistent damage.

Failure The target takes full initial and persistent damage.

Critical Failure The target takes double initial and persistent damage.


Heightened (+1) The initial damage increases by 1d4 and the persistent damage increases by 1d4.

Scholarly Recollection Focus 1

Uncommon Cleric Divination Fortune

Domain knowledge

Cast [reaction] verbal

Trigger You attempt a Perception check to Seek, or you attempt a skill check to Recall Knowledge with a skill you’re trained in.


Speaking a short prayer as you gather your thoughts, you’re blessed to find that your deity gave you just the right bit of information for your situation. Roll the triggering check twice and use the better result.

Take Its Course Focus 4

Uncommon Cleric Necromancy

Domain indulgence

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range touch; Targets 1 creature


When someone has overindulged, you can hasten them past the worst of their affliction or intensify their misery.

This spell attempts to progress a disease affliction, a poison affliction, or persistent poison damage affecting the target.

If the target is affected by more than one of these, you can choose from among those you are aware of; otherwise the GM chooses randomly. An unwilling target can attempt a Will save to negate take its course.

The effect of this spell depends on whether you’re attempting to end an affliction or persistent poison damage, and whether you are attempting to help or hinder the target’s recovery.

  • Affliction The target immediately attempts its next saving throw against the affliction. You can grant the creature your choice of a +2 status bonus or a –2 status penalty to its saving throw against the affliction.
  • Persistent Poison You can cause the target take the persistent poison damage immediately when you Cast this spell (in addition to taking it at the end of its next turn). Whether or not you do so, the target attempts an additional flat check against the persistent poison damage. You can set the DC of that flat check to 5 or 20 instead of the normal DC.

If the saving throw’s result is a success, it becomes a critical success. If it’s a failure, it becomes a critical failure, and the critical failure can’t be reduced by abilities that usually reduce critical failure, such as improved evasion.

If the triggering ability did not have both a critical success and critical failure condition, tempt fate fails, but you don’t expend the Focus Point for Casting this Spell.
