This spell transforms a field of carrion to an empowering feast. For the duration, all creatures of your choice can consume the decaying flesh of any creature. When the spell’s duration elapses, if a creature has eaten carrion for the entirety, it recovers 10d6 hit points, recovers half its expended Hit Dice (minimum 1), removes half its levels of exhaustion (minimum 1), and gains all the benefits of finishing a short rest.

Creatures affected by this spell must succeed on a Constitution saving throw at the end of the duration or be poisoned for 1 hour.

At Higher Levels. If this spell is cast using a 9th level slot, the affected creatures recover from all levels of exhaustion they’ve gained and recover all expended Hit Dice in addition to the effects noted above.
