Distant Grasp

3rd-level transmutation (ritual)

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (an arcane connection, as defined in the spell description, which the spell consumes)

Duration: 1 hour, or until expended

You perform an incantation that creates a connection between you and a named living creature, allowing you to subsequently cast a curse of 3rd level or lower upon the target without being in its presence. You must cast the subsequent curse after casting this spell and before its duration expires. Once you have cast a single curse on the target, this spell ends. The distant grasp changes the subsequent curse’s range to 1 mile.

To use distant grasp, you must know the name of the target, and you must have some piece of the target’s body to use as an arcane connection (hair, fingernails, and blood are common choices). You may use this spell to increase the range of any of the following spells (assuming you cast distant grasp at a sufficiently high level): bestow curse, contagion, hex, and any spells beginning with “curse of…

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, you may use it to cast a curse spell of that same level or lower.
