Seal of Sanctuary

7th-level abjuration (ritual)

Classes cleric, paladin, warlock, wizard

Casting Time: 10 minutes

Range: Touch

Components: V, S, M (incense and special inks worth 250 gp, which the spell consumes)

Duration: 24 hours

You inscribe an angelic seal on the ground, floor, or other solid component of a structure. The seal creates a spherical, spiritual boundary with a radius of 50 feet. For the duration, aberrations, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead who approach within 5 feet of the boundary know they are about to cross a dangerous barrier. If the creature comes into contact with the boundary, it must make a Charisma saving throw. On a failure, it takes 10d8 radiant damage, it’s repelled to 5 feet outside the boundary, and it can’t target anything on the opposite side of the boundary with attacks, spells, or abilities. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much radiant damage and can cross the boundary. While within 50 feet of the seal (inside the boundary), aberrations, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead have disadvantage on ability checks, attack rolls, and saving throws. All of these effects apply to the specified creatures trying to cross the boundary by any means, including teleportation and extradimensional travel.

Creatures other than aberrations, elementals, fey, fiends, and undead can’t be charmed or frightened while within the area.

The seal has 50 hit points, has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage, and is immune to psychic and poison damage. If the seal is reduced to 0 hit points, the spell ends.
