Forceful Hand
Evocation cantrip
Casting time: 1 bonus action
Range: Self
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 round

You surround one or both of your hands with gloves of transparent force until the start of your next turn, granting several benefits until then.

  • You can safely touch, manipulate, and even feel otherwise dangerous objects. The gloves of force shield your hand(s) from acid, cold, fire, electricity, poison, sharp points, and bladed edges.
  • Whenever you make an unarmed strike, you can substitute a melee spell attack. On a hit, this melee spell attack inflicts force damage equal to 1 + your spellcasting modifier.
  • If you have a hand free, and are not wielding a shield or otherwise gaining a similar bonus to your AC, you gain a +1 bonus to your AC.
  • If you take the Dodge action, you can interpose your hand(s) in such a way that you gain resistance to force damage.

Starting from 5th level, the melee spell attack derived from this spell instead inflicts force damage equal to 1d4 + your spellcasting modifier. This damage increases by 1d4 when you reach 17th level (2d4 + spellcasting modifier).
