Curse of Hostility

3rd-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You touch a creature, and that creature must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or become cursed with the antipathy of a certain type of creature, chosen by you when you cast the spell. Choose from one of the following: aberrations, beasts, celestials, dragons, elementals, fey, fiends, giants, humanoids, monstrosities, plants, or undead. In situations involving creatures of the selected type, the following effects apply.

  • In encounters with creatures of the selected type when the creatures are already hostile, they will attack the target of this spell in preference to other targets.
  • A creature of the selected type gains advantage on any attack rolls made against the target if the target has attacked and hit that creature at least once during the encounter.
  • The target has disadvantage on any Charisma-based checks made against creatures of the chosen type.

A remove curse spell ends this effect.

At Higher Levels. If you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level, the duration is concentration, up to 10 minutes. If you use a spell slot of 5th or 6th level, the duration is 8 hours. If you use a spell slot of 7th or 8th level, the duration is 24 hours. If you use a 9th-level spell slot, the spell lasts until dispelled.
