Bestow Curse

3rd-level manipulation

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

You touch a creature, and that creature must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or become cursed for the duration. When you use this power, choose the nature of the curse from the following options:

  • Choose one ability score. While cursed, the target has disadvantage on ability checks and saving throws made with that ability score.
  • While cursed, the target has disadvantage on attack rolls against you.
  • While cursed, the target must make a Wisdom saving throw at the start of each of its turns. If it fails, it wastes its action that turn doing nothing.
  • While the target is cursed, your attacks and powers deal an extra 1d8 necrotic damage to the target. A remove curse power ends this effect.
  • At the GM’s option, you may choose an alternative curse effect, but it should be no more powerful than those described above. The GM has final say on such a curse’s effect.

At Higher Levels. At 7th level, the duration is concentration, up to 10 minutes. At 9th level, the duration is 8 hours and no longer requires concentration. At 13th level, the duration is 24 hours. At 17th level, the power lasts until it is dispelled.
