My dnd-5e party has angered a wealthy and powerful cult of warlocks. That group of warlocks plans to offer a bounty for the destruction of the party.
Using only Warlock spells, Invocations, and magic items, how can the cult efficiently create and distribute magical wanted posters of the players across a continent?
In my specific case, we have these details available, but the best answers would not use these details, so that the answer can be of use to others in the future:
- My Warlocks have a Fathomless patron as in Tasha's Cauldron of Everything.
- One of my warlocks is personally familiar with one of the party members, which matters for spells like Scrying.
- Several of my warlocks have met the party members in person.
- (Added after comments:) The continent is a homebrewed setting; large parts of it are barely populated, but there are several population centers and the different regions of the continent are largely at peace with one another, allowing relatively free movement. Think Australia but without a central government.
Example unsatisfying answers:
Magic exists; just say the posters are created by magic.
I like to restrict the NPCs to only abilities that PCs could gain, to set an example for players and encourage them to be creative within the rules. If there is an established magic item that would help the cult do this, that would be much more acceptable to me.
(Added after some comments:) Just have artists draw mundane posters, then distribute the posters using normal trade routes, or maybe send riders out with the posters.
A good answer should use at least some minimum amount of magic, since the goal is for my players to interact with cool/fun/awesome things.
Major Image and Teleportation Circle are in the Warlock spell list. A very high-level warlock could use a Teleportation Circle to each major city on the continent and put up a Wanted Hologram of the party at each one using a 6th-level cast of Major Image.
This is cool, but not efficient: it requires a very high-level caster to personally travel the world to distribute the wanted posters, and the rules don't technically allow a Warlock to cast Major Image at 6th level. Still, this is close to the answer I am looking for.
