Sunday Spell: Lifetree

Lifetree

School Conjuration (healing, summoning); Level Cleric 4, Druid 4
Casting Time 1 round
Range close (25 ft +5 ft. / 2 levels)
Components V, S, DF (a willow branch)
Effect One summoned tree with 30-ft healing aura
Duration 1 minute/level
Saving throw: none; Spell Resistance: no

This spell summons a magic willow tree (5-foot-diameter trunk, 60-foot height, 40-foot top diameter) that appears where you designate. The tree sheds an aura of healing magic, granting allies within the area fast healing 2. Additionally, when one of your allies within the aura would be reduced to -1 hit points or lower, they instantly receive the benefits of a cure light wounds spell as if cast by a 1st-level spellcaster. A creature can only benefit from this effect once per day.

Notes

I’ve always thought that spells should do wondrous, magical things, and not always do small, specific things. This spell combines powerful healing with a terrain feature.
