Moonlight Sending

4th-level conjuration (fey)

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (an offering of gemstones, incense, and oils worth at least 400 gp, which the spell consumes, set afire in an alabaster bowl)

Duration: Instantaneous

You exhort a fiend to attack a distant foe. After the offering is made, make a spell attack roll to determine which fiend is summoned:

d20 Result CR
1–4 Sending fails
5–8 Wind demon or quasit 1–2
9–12 Rattok demon or bearded devil 3–4
13–16 Lesser lunar devil or vrock 4–6
17–20 Lunar devil or hezrou 8
21+ Alnaar or horned devil. 9–11

Once summoned, you must compel the fiend to seek out a particular creature you choose that is on the same plane of existence as you by making a DC 10 Charisma (Persuasion) check. On a success, the fiend slinks off to its target, usually but not always by night. On a failure, the fiend refuses, and the offering and the bowl are consumed in the casting.

The conjured fiend may find that the target is warded or inaccessible or simply difficult to find (whether because of invisibility or some other reason).

In this case, you must make a DC 15 Charisma (Persuasion) check. On a success, the fiend returns and demands no further offering, reports its failure, and vanishes. On a failure, the fiend returns and demands another offering. If this is not immediately forthcoming, it attacks you.
