You inflict your target with a curse of aging, forcing the years to slip through their fingers like grains of sand. The sudden frailty reduces all of the target’s physical stats by 2 and gives them disadvantage on all checks and saves which use one attribute of the caster’s choice. In addition, the target is filled with a sense of hopelessness and failure as her life slips away. As long as the curse endures, the target cannot gain inspiration dice, and gains disadvantage on all saving throws against effects that target the emotions.

Whenever the target fails a saving throw against such an effect, she gains 1 Madness point (though she may gain only one Madness point per day in this fashion).

When your heroes are on the hunt for fabulous treasure, they need all their abilities in tip-top shape, with an array of awesome character options tailored for every kind of campaign. In this section, you’ll find a wide array of druid circles, fighter martial archetypes, bard colleges, warlock patrons and invocations, and more, along with fantastic feats for any class.
