I am hoping the community can offer clarification on this spell. In my game tonight (I am the GM), an object was the target of the sympathy spell. Two PCs failed their saving throw and one succeeded. The two that failed immediately were drawn to the object, leaving the one PC wondering what they could do. We had a great discussion and a lot of creative methods were considered - overall great interaction with everyone.
- Is there any spell that can disrupt sympathy? Options: Dispel Magic / Greater Restoration / Remove Curse
- Can covering the target with a blanket or cloak disrupt sympathy? (without any save)
The spell states "If an affected creature ends its turn while not within 60 feet of the target or able to see it, the creature makes a Wisdom saving throw."
- Does this mean if the unaffected PC drags the affected PC past 60 feet that the affected PC can make another save on their turn? (I would assume the affected PC would need to be grappled in order to drag them away)
- What if the affected creatures eyes are covered? Or, blindness is cast upon the affected PC?
- Does the affected creature have to be both over 60 feet away AND not be able to see the target object? Or does one condition suffice?
My PCs considered using "Rope Trick" to create an invisible space in the air, then attaching the rope to the target object then dragging the object up and into the extra-dimensional space where it then disappears
- Would the object then be considered to be unseen and over 60 feet away for purposes of retrying the save? Or, does it just disrupt and end the spell - of course, after one hour, the object falls from the extra-dimensional space
Overvall, what disrupts the Sympathy spell immediately (if anything)? Versus, what actions can be taken so that the affected creature is allowed to make a saving throw on their next turn?
