Hello readers’ in this post we are going to talk about the DND School of Magic. It’s very intresting topic on dnd game. Now we will shortly discuss their all types of intresting points. So let’s start post.

School of Abjuration

The School of Abjuration emphasizes magic that blocks, banishes, or protects.

Detractors of the school say that its tradition is about denial, negation rather then positive assertion.

You understand, however, that ending harmful effects, protecting the weak, and banishing evil influences is anything but a philosophical void. It is a proud and respected vocation.

Called abjurers, members of this school are sought when baleful spirits require exorcism, when important locations must be guarded against magical spying, and when portals to other planes of existence must be closed.

Abjuration Savant

Beginning when you select this school at 2nd level, the gold and time you must spend to copy an abjuration spell into your spellbook is halved.

Arcane Ward

Starting at 2nd level, you can weave magic around yourself for protection. When you cast an abjuration spell of 1st level or higher, you can simultaneously use a strand of the spell’s magic to create a magical ward on yourself that lasts until you finish a long rest.

The ward has hit points equal to twice your wizard level + your Intelligence modifier.

Whenever you take damage, the ward takes the damage instead. If this damage reduces the ward to 0 hit points, you take any remaining damage.

While the ward has 0 hit points, it can’t absorb damage, but its magic remains.

Whenever you cast an Abjuration spell of 1st level or higher, the ward regains a numbers of hit points equal to twice the level of the spell.

Once you create the ward, you can’t create it again until you finish a long rest.

Projected Ward

Starting at 6th level, when a creature that you can see within 30 feet of you takes damage, you can use your reaction to cause your Arcane Ward to absorb that damage.

If this damage reduces the ward to 0 hit points, the warded creature takes any remaining damage.

Improved Abjuration

Beginning at 10th level, when you cast an abjuration spell that requires you to make an ability check as a part of casting that spell (as in counterspell and dispel magic), you add your proficiency bonus to that ability check.

Starting at 14th level, you have advantage on saving throws against spells.

Furthermore, you have resistance against the damage of spells

School of Conjuration

As a conjurer, you favor spells that produce objects and creatures out of thin air. You can conjure billowing clouds of killing fog or summon creatures from elsewhere to fight on your behalf.

This objects can be larger than 3 feet on a side and weigh no more than 10 pounds, and its from must be that of a non-magical object that you have seen.

The object is visibly magical radiating dim light out to 5 feet.

The object disappears after 1 hour, when you use this feature again, or if it takes any damage.

Starting at 6th level, you can use your action to teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.

Alternatively, you can choose a space within range that is occupier by a Small or medium creature. If that creature is willing, you both teleport, swapping places.

You must choose to do so before the roll, and you can replace a roll in this way only once per turn.

Each foretelling roll can be used only once. When you finish a long rest, you lose any unused foretelling rolls.

Expert Divination

Beginning at 6th level, casting divination spell comes so easily to you that it expends only a fraction of your Spellcasting efforts.

Starting at 2nd level when you choose the school, your soft words and enchanting gaze can magically enthrall another creature.

As an action, choose one creature that you can see within 5 feet of you. If the target can see or hear you, it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw againsy your wizards spell save DC or be charmed by you until the end of your next turn. The charmed creature’s speed drops too, and the creature is incapacitated and visibly dazed.

One subsequent turns, you can use your action to maintain this effect, extending its duration until the end of your next turn.

However, the effect ends if you move more than 5 feet away from the creature, if the creature can neither see nor hear you, or if the creature takes damage.

Once the effect ends, or if the creatures succeeds on its initial saving throw against this effect, you can’t use this feature on that creature again until you finish a long rest.

Instinctive Charm

Beginning at 6th level, when a creature you can see within 30 feet of your makes an attack roll against you, you can use your reaction to divert the attack, provided that another creature is within the attack’s range.

The attacker must make Wisdom saving throw against your wizard spell save DC. On a failed save, the attacker must target the creature that is closest to it, not including you or itself. If multiple creatures are closest, the attacker chooses which one to target.

You can make the creature forget less time, and the amount of time can’t exceed the duration of your enchantment spell.

School of Evocation

You focus your study on magic that creates powerful elemental effect such as bitter cold, searing flame, rolling thunder, crackling lightning, and burning acid.

The chosen creatures automatically succeed on their saving throws against the spell, and they take no damage if they would normally take half damage on a sucessful save.

Potent Cantrip

Starting at 6th level, your damaging cantrips affect even creatures that avoid the brunt of the effect.

The first time you do so, you suffer no adverse effect. If you use this feature again before you finish a long rest, you take 2d 12 necrotic damage for each level of the spell, immediately after you cast it.

Each time you use this feature again before finishing a long rest, the necrotic damage per spell level increases by 1d 12. This damage ignores resistance and immunity.

School of Illusion

You focus your studies on magic that dazzles the senses, befuddles the mind, and tricks even the wisest folk. Your magic is subtle, but the illusions crafted by your keen mind make the impossible seem real.

Some illusionists—including many gnome wizards—are benign tricksters who use their spells to entertain.

Others are more sinister masters of deception, using their illusions to frighten and fool others for their personal gain.

Beginning when you select this school at 2nd level, the gold and time you must spend to copy an illusion spell into your spellbook is halved.

Improved Minor Illusion

When you choose this school at 2nd level, you learn the minor illusion cantrip. If you already know this cantrip, you learn a different wizard cantrip of your choice.

The cantrip doesn’t count against your number of cantrips known.

When you cast minor illusion, you can create both a sound and an image with a single casting of the spell.

Malleable Illusions

Starting at 6th level, when you cast an illusion spell that has a duration of 1 minute or longer, you can use your action to change the nature of that illusion (using the spell’s normal parameters for the illusion), provided that you can see the illusion.

Illusory Self

Beginning at 10th level, you can create an illusory duplicate of yourself as an instant, almost instinctual reaction to danger.

When a creature makes an attack roll against you, you can use your reaction to interpose the illusory duplicate between the attacker and yourself.

The attack automatically m isses you, then the illusion dissipates.

Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Illusory Reality

By 14th level, you have learned the secret of weaving shadow magic into your illusions to give them a semi-reality.

When you cast an illusion spell of 1st level or higher, you can choose one inanimate, nonm agical object that is part of the illusion and make that object real.

You can do this on your turn as a bonus action while the spell is ongoing. The object remains real for 1 minute.

For example, you can create an illusion of a bridge over a chasm and then make it real long enough for your allies to cross.

The object can’t deal damage or otherwise directly harm anyone.

School of Necromancy

The School of Necromancy explores the cosmic forces of life, death, and undeath.

As you focus your studies in this tradition, you learn to manipulate the energy that animates all living things.

As you progress, you learn to sap the life force from a creature as your magic destroys its body, transforming that vital energy into magical power you can manipulate.

Most people see necromancers as menacing, or even villainous, due to the close association with death.

Not all necromancers are evil, but the forces they manipulate are considered taboo by many societies.

Necromancy Savant

Beginning when you select this school at 2nd level, the gold and time you must spend to copy a necromancy spell into your spellbook is halved.

Grim Harvest

At 2nd level, you gain the ability to reap life energy from creatures you kill with your spells.

Once per turn when you kill one or more creatures with a spell of 1st level or higher, you regain hit points equal to twice the spell’s level, or three times its level if the spell belongs to the School of Necromancy. You don’t gain this benefit for killing constructs or undead.

Undead Thralls

At 6th level, you add the animate dead spell to your spellbook if it is not there already. When you cast animate dead, you can target one additional corpse or pile of bones, creating another zombie or skeleton, as appropriate.

Whenever you create an undead using a necromancy spell, it has additional benefits:

Inured to Undeath

Beginning at 10th level, you have resistance to necrotic damage, and your hit point maximum can’t be reduced.

You have spent so much time dealing with undead and the forces that animate them that you have become inured to som e of their worst effects.

Command Undead

Starting at 14th level, you can use magic to bring undead under your control, even those created by other wizards.

As an action, you can choose one undead that you can see within 60 feet of you.

That creature must make a Charisma saving throw against your wizard spell save DC. If it succeeds, you can’t use this feature on it again.

If it fails, it becomes friendly to you and obeys your commands until you use this feature again.

Intelligent undead are harder to control in this way. If the target has an Intelligence of 8 or higher, it has advantage on the saving throw.

If it fails the saving throw and has an Intelligence of 12 or higher, it can repeat the saving throw at the end of every hour until it succeeds and breaks free.

School of Transmutation

You are a student of spells that modify energy and matter. To you, the world is not a fixed thing, but eminently mutable, and you delight in being an agent of change.

You wield the raw stuff of creation and learn to alter both physical forms and mental qualities.

Your magic gives you the tools to become a smith on reality’s forge.

Some transmuters are tinkerers and pranksters, turning people into toads and transforming copper into silver for fun and occasional profit.

Others pursue their magical studies with deadly seriousness, seeking the power of the gods to make and destroy worlds.

Transmutation Savant

Beginning when you select this school at 2nd level, the gold and time you must spend to copy a transmutation spell into your spellbook is halved.

Minor Alchemy

Starting at 2nd level when you select this school, you can temporarily alter the physical properties of one non-magical objects, changing it from one substance into another.

You perform a special alchemical procedure on one object composed entirely of wood, stone (but not a gemstone), iron, copper, or silver, transforming it into a different one of those materials.

For each 10 minutes you spend performing the procedure, you can transform up to 1 cubic foot of material.

After 1 hour, or until you lose your concentration ( as if you were concentrating on a spell), the material reverts to its original substance.

Transmuter’s Stone

Starting at 6th level, you can spend 8 hours creating a Transmuter’s stone that stores transmutation magic.

You can benefit from the stone yourself or give it to another creatures. A creature gains a benifit of your choice as long as the stone is in the creature’s possession.

When you create the stone, choose the benifit from the following options:

Each time you cast a transmutation spell of 1st level or higher, you can change the effect of your stone if the stone is on your person.

If you create a new Transmuter’s stone, the previous one ceases to function.

Shapechanger

At 10th level, you add the polymorph spell to your spellbook, if it is not there already. You can cast polymorph without expending a spell slot.

When you do so, you can target only yourself and transforn into a beast whose challenge rating is1or lower.

Once you cast ploymorph in this way, you can’t do so again until you finish a short or long rest, though you can still cast it normally usinga an avilable spell slot.

Master Transmuter

Starting at 14th level, you can use your action to consume the reserve of transmutation magic stored within your transmuter’s stone in a single burst.

When you do so, choose one of the following effecfs. Your transmuter’s stone is destroyed and can’t be remade until you finish a long rest.

Major Transformation. You can transmute one non-magical object-no larger than a 5-foot cube- into another non-magical object of similar size and mass and of equal or lesser value. You must spend 10 minutes handling the object to transform it.

Panacea. You remove all curses, diseases, and poisons affecting a creature that you touch with the transmuter’s stone. The creature also regains all its hit points

Restore Life. You cast the raise dead spell on a creature you touch with the Transmuter’s stone, without expending a spell slot or needing to have the spell in your spellbook.

Restore Youth. You touch the Transmuter’s stone to a willing creature, and that creature’s apparents age is reduced by 3d 10 years, to a minimum of 13 years. This effect doesn’t extend the creature’s lifespan.
