Soul Gem
1st-level Conjuration
Casting time: 1 Bonus Action
Range: 120 feet
Components: V (you must say the type of gem you wish the soul to be captured in)
Duration: 10 minute


You choose a creature that you can see within range and mark it with dark energy, ensnaring the spiritual essence of their soul. If the creature dies within the spell's duration, the creature's soul is captured in a gem that materializes and is magically affixed to anything on your person.

The gem looks identical to a real gem in every way. However, a perception check contested against your spell save DC reveals that the gem is fake and has no monetary value. The soul inside can only be detected by magical means. The soul gem also cannot be used as material in lieu of an real gem in casting a spell.

The gem cannot be removed from its location by anyone except you by any means. You may choose to use an action to relocate the gem to a different item on your person.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, you can capture one additional creatures soul for each slot level above 1st.
