Substitutionary Idol

3rd-level abjuration

Classes: cleric, warlock

Casting time: 1 action

Range: self

Components: V, S, M (offerings to the spirits worth 10 gp and a small statuette)

Duration: 8 hours

You prepare a small statuette that represents your deity or the spirits you revere and imbue a portion of your essence, taking at least 1 point of damage that cannot be healed while the spell persists, up to a maximum number of hit points equal to your caster level. For every hit point you sacrifice, the substitutionary idol gains 5 temporary hit points. Once the spell is completed, any hit point damage you take (including nonlethal damage) is split evenly between you and the substitutionary idol. If you move more than 100 feet from the substitutionary idol, the spell’s effect is suppressed but its duration continues to elapse. If all of the substitutionary idol’s hit points are expended, the spell ends. Any leftover damage from that attack or effect in excess of what was required to reduce the idol’s hit points to 0 is taken by you and is not split.
