Serpent’s Stare

1st-level enchantment

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 30 feet

Components: V, S

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You meet the gaze of a living creature and cause it to halt in place, fixed by your stare. The target must succeed on a Charisma saving throw or else it cannot take any actions or move on its turn, nor can it take reactions. While you concentrate on this spell, you cannot take actions on your turn, though you can still move or take bonus actions and reactions. The entranced creature may attempt a new saving throw at the end of its turn every round, as well as any time it takes damage or is forced to make a saving throw from an effect other than this spell. The spell ends if the target succeeds in one of these saves, if you cease concentrating, if you take an action, or if you move beyond the spell’s range or outside of the target’s vision.

At Higher Levels. If you use a 2nd or higher level spell slot, this spell can affect undead creatures as well.
