River of Blood

2nd-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Touch

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You strike the ground and a slight crack opens, from which a thin trickle of blood issues forth. Though it is barely more than a small stream, this steady flow continues as long as you concentrate, running down and across the ground as a crimson fluid. This stream creates one gallon per minute.

The blood carries all of the nutrients common to humanoid blood, and as such is nourishing to soil and—if cast with regularity—allows plants to grow in earth where they normally could not. It is not suitable for drinking by humans, elves, or dwarves, though ghûl and carnivorous or carrion-eating animals can drink it without harm. Purify food and drink renders it safe for humanoid consumption.

When cast within a domain of Woe, the blood expands the domain if it flows beyond the domain’s existing borders.

When the spell ends, the spring stops, but any blood that flowed forth remains. It can be collected like any liquid.
