Delay Death

, ,

Components: V, S, M (a piece of stone from a tombstone)

Casting Time: 1 Action

Duration: 1 minute

Range: 60 ft.

Area of Effect: 1 creature

Saving Throw: None

You give one willing creature you can see the ability to keep fighting despite near-lethal wounds. When the creature drops to 0 hit points without being instantly killed, it does not become unconscious but can keep acting normally. The creature still makes death saving throws and dies if it fails three times or if it takes enough damage to cause instant death. The creature does not automatically fail death saving throws when it takes damage. Delay death has no effect on a creature already at 0 hit points when the spell is cast.
