Threefold Moons of Thoth

5th-level evocation

Classes: cleric, warlock, wizard

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 200 feet

Components: V, S, M (3 pearls worth 100 gp each)

Duration: concentration, up to 1 hour

You create three glowing motes of light that whirl and spin around the caster, one resembling a full moon, one a half moon, and one a crescent moon, shedding light equivalent to a moonlight spell centered on and moving with the caster. As a bonus action, the caster may send any or all of the moons to any points within range, causing their light to emanate from that point with a radius of 30 feet. If the caster moves so that one or more moons would be outside the spell’s range, those moons immediately return to the caster’s side.

In addition to shedding light, the threefold moons of Thoth exert power over certain realms of magic, as follows:

  • Full Moon: Representing light and certainty, the full moon enhances that create light.
  • Half Moon: Representing balance and negotiation, the half moon enhances abjurations
  • Crescent Moon: Representing knowledge and wisdom, the crescent moon enhances divinations; and spells that create runes, symbols, and writings.

As long as the moon is adjacent to you, you can identify any spell being cast that corresponds to the moon, and gain advantage on saving throws against spells using its types of magic. In addition, at any point during the spell’s duration you can tap a moon when casting a spell of its type. This causes the spell to take effect at +1 slot level and also can effect the spell as if a sorcerer with any metamagic that costs 1 sorcery point or less. These benefits stack if you are a sorcerer using that metamagic. After a moon is tapped it winks out and its effects are lost. If all three moons are tapped in this way, the spell ends.
