5 points from a Lay on Hands pool can be used to cure disease (or neutralize poison). Some effects appear like diseases but are instead just spell effects or curses.
If I attempt to use Lay on Hands for this purpose and there is no disease or poison present, what happens?
Some potential outcomes my player (who is the one who asked me) considered:
- Since it is an invalid target, the attempt fails and no points are expended
- The points are expended but have no effect
- The points can be converted to standard healing for 5 points without costing a new action
- The points are automatically converted to healing
