Black Well

Black Well

6th-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 300 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You summon a seething sphere of dark energy 5 feet in diameter. The sphere pulls creatures toward it and devours the life force of those it envelops. Every creature other than you that starts its turn within 90 feet of the black well must make a successful Strength saving throw or be pulled 50 feet toward the well. A creature pulled into the well takes 6d8 necrotic damage and is stunned; a successful Constitution saving throw halves the damage and reduces the stun to incapacitation. A creature that starts its turn inside the well also makes a Constitution saving throw; the creature is stunned on a failure or incapacitated on a success. An incapacitated creature that leaves the well recovers immediately and can take actions and reactions that turn. Creatures take damage only upon entering the well—they take no additional damage for remaining in it—but if they leave the well and are pulled back in again, they take damage again. A total of nine Medium creatures, three Large creatures, or one Huge creature can be inside the well’s upper‐dimensional space at one time. When the well’s duration ends, all creatures inside it tumble out in a heap, landing prone.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 7th level or higher, the damage done by the well increases by 1d8 and the well pulls creatures an additional 5 feet for each slot level above 6th.
