Baleful Regression (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||1 action|
|Components:||V, S, M (a scythe)|
|Duration:||Concentration, up to 1 minute|
You hurl a ball of jet black, vibrating energy at a creature in range. Make a ranged spell attack against the target. On a hit, the target must succeed on a Charisma saving throw.
On a failed save, the target is reduced to an infant version of itself, or an otherwise inferior form for the duration. Most living creatures are reduced to their infant stage, while unusual creatures like fiends and undead may be reduced to an inferior and smaller but related form—such as a stalfos being reduced to a mere stalhead. The creature's equipment is resized, altered, or absorbed as necessary to fit this new form.
Your DM may decide to use appropriate statistics for the infantile creature if they are readily available. An ancient red dragon affected by this spell could be transformed into a red dragon wyrmling, for example. Otherwise, the following guidelines can be used for the infantile or inferior form:
- The creature has disadvantage on all ability checks and attack rolls.
- The creature is prone, and cannot use its movement to recover from this condition.
- The creature can only speak and understand one of the languages it knows, but can't read or write.
- The creature cannot cast spells, nor perform other actions which require advanced knowledge and training.
On its turn, the target can use its action to repeat the Charisma saving throw, ending this spell on a success. If the target takes damage or is subjected to a saving throw, immediately afterward it can repeat the Charisma saving throw and end this spell on a success.
