Infestation

2nd-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Components: V, S, M (a single rot grub)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour.

Choose a creature you can see within range. The creature must succeed on a Dexterity saving throw or be infested with a Swarm of Rot Grubs. On a failed save, the rot grub burrows into the creature’s flesh and deals 3 (1d6) piercing damage at the start of each of the host creature’s turns. If a creature infested by one or more rot grubs ends its turn with 0 hit points, it dies as the grubs burrow into its heart and kill it. Any effect that cures disease kills all rot grubs infesting the target. Burning a body kills any rot grubs infesting it.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 2nd. The creatures must be within 30 feet of each other when you target them.

Usable by: Druid, Warlock, Sorcerer, Wizard
