Mass Martyrdom

4th-level abjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 60 feet

Components: V, S, M (a holy symbol consecrated to your deity for each target)

Duration: 1 hour per level

Classes: cleric, paladin

You establish a spiritual connection with multiple allies, granting a +2 to armor class for each of them as if you had cast the shield of faith spell on them. The targets must be willing creatures and must be carrying a holy symbol consecrated to your deity. If a target loses or destroys the holy symbol, the spell’s effects are suppressed until they can reacquire it or create a new one. You take 1 point of damage every time one of your allies affected by this spell takes damage from an attack or effect.

If the distance between you and any target exceeds the spell’s range, this spell’s effects are negated until you move closer together, at which point the effects resume. Any damage taken by the targets while they are out of range is not shared with you.

If you die, your life force surges outward at the moment of your death, reaching the targets of the spell within range. Each target is healed for 5 (1d8) damage plus 1 point per level (maximum +20).

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 5th level, the maximum duration of the spell increases by 1 hour.
