Fireflies | Cantrip Spell for D&D 5e


Just a simple, flavorful cantrip spell for the nature-based casters out there. It’s not listed in the image, but clerics serving nature deities could easily have access to this spell as well.

Evocation cantrip (Druid, Ranger)

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (insect wings)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

1d6 tiny fireflies spark into existence around you, shedding dim light in a 10 foot radius. As a bonus action while the spell is active, you may choose any number of remaining fireflies and make a ranged spell attack against a creature within 30 feet of you. On a hit, the spell deals 1 fire damage for each firefly you choose to attack with.
You cannot cast this spell again until all flames have been used, or until the spell’s duration is up.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 1st level or higher, increase the number of fireflies that appear by 1d6 for each slot level including and above 1st level.

Clavia’s Storage Closet | Magic Item for D&D 5e


Wondrous Item, Rare

This large, obsidian key has a two digit number embossed in gold on its handle (DM’s choice.) When laid flat on the user’s palm, the key will create a small door to a demiplane. The door measures 2ft wide by 6ft tall. The space inside measures 5ft wide by 5ft long, and 10ft tall.

Any items left inside the space remain there until the space is accessed once more. This key can only access the space it is attached to, and no others. A breathing creature within a closed storage closet can survive for up to 10 minutes, after which time it begins to suffocate.
