Feast of Ashes

3rd-level transmutation

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S, M (a pinch of ash)

Duration: 7 days

Classes: druid, warlock

You curse the target with a hunger no food can assuage. If the target fails a Constitution saving throw, they begin to starve. They gain no nutrition from food they eat, and even attempting to eat provokes cramps and nausea, forcing the target to make a Constitution saving throw to avoid being poisoned for 1 round. Other than providing nutrition, objects they eat have their normal effects, such as poisoned items, potions, etc. The target can go without food for a number of days equal to 3 + their Constitution modifier (minimum 1). At the end of each day beyond that limit, the target automatically gains one level of exhaustion.

Feast of ashes can be removed with dispel evil and good, greater restoration, remove curse, or wish or by consuming a heroes’ feast, but any exhaustion gained as a result of the spell remains until it is removed by rest or magic. While the curse remains, taking a long rest does not reduce the target’s exhaustion level since they are treated as having not ingested any food during their rest.
