Well of Lost Lore (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|7th-level divination (ritual)|
|Casting time:||1 minute|
|Components:||V, S, M (A piece of paper with writing about the knowledge you seek (could be as simple as a name, but the more information listed the more you will find))|
|Duration:||Concentration, up to 8 hours|
The lost lore of Faerûn will be discovered once again. When you cast this spell a crystal basin one foot across, with an eight-pointed star in the center, rises 3 feet from the ground and fills itself with water. As an action you can place the spell component into the water, at which point the water forms into a hand and grabs your head and pulls it into the basin. When your head becomes submerged you must make a DC 18 Intelligence saving throw or have your mind destroyed. On a successful save your conscious mind is bombarded with the information you were seeking dealing 3d10 psychic damage to you (cannot be reduced or prevented) due to the sudden influx of knowledge. On a failed save your Intelligence score becomes 3 and you are driven insane by the information causing you to begin tirelessly writing all of the lore down for others to find (this effect renders you unable to take a long rest). This effect lasts until you reach an exhaustion of 5 or more, or you succeed on the Intelligence saving throw which you make every day at dawn.
The lore granted to you by this spell is determined by your DM but it must be relevant to what you wrote on the piece of paper. Alternatively you may leave the page blank to learn something that has been lost to the ages or stricken from existence. This information is determined by the DM, but encourage your DM to make the information somewhat useful.
