Daily Punch 11-9-20 Disfigure spell for DnD 5e

I’ve been thinking of some spells I’ve seen in movies where the villain curses the hero, and the hero is disfigured. Can we do something like that?

Disfigure

5th-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 60 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: 30 days

You throw raw hate at a target in range. The target must make a Constitution saving throw. If the target fails, you inflect a horrible curse upon the target bending its physical form to break spirit and spine. The target has a -2 penalty to saves and checks with one ability, a -10 feet penalty to its speed, or a -1 penalty to all attacks for the duration of the spell. A target can be affected by multiple castings of this spell, but each casting must cause a different effect.

A wish spell is the only spell can can end this effect early, you may end this spell with a thought at any time, or your death ends the curse as well.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 7th or 8th level, the duration is 1 year. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 9th level, the spell lasts until it is ended by a wish spell.

Daily Punch 11-2-20 Wracking Cough spell for 5e DnD 5e

I hurt my upper respitory a few years ago, so when the seasons change, I start barking. Normally it draws looks, but for some reason, this year I get a bit more stares…

How about a spell for that?

Wracking Cough

2nd-level necromancy

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 50 feet
Components: V, S
Duration: concentration, up to one minute

You point at a creature in range and whisper vile words at it. The target must make a Constitution saving throw. If it fails, it becomes infected with a fast acting disease as it begins to cough uncontrollable tearing its lungs apart from the inside dealing 2d6 necrotic damage. Each round at the start of the creatures turn, it must make another Constitution saving throw. If it succeeds the effect end, but if it fails it continues to cough taking 2d6 necrotic damage. Then all creatures that are engaged with the target must also make a Constitution saving throw. Upon a failure, the creature is affected by the spell taking damage as above. If a creature saves against this spell once, it is immune from this one casting of the spell, but can be affected again by a different casting of this spell. Immunity to magical diseases prevents a target from being affected. The cycle of infection continues until all creatures save against the spell or you are no longer concentrating on the spell.

At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 2nd.

Daily Punch 9-18-20 Arrow of Animal Summoning wondrous item for Dnd 5e

The Wife had an awesome idea, so I am stealing it!

Arrow of Animal Summoning

Wondrous item, uncommon

This arrow is made from the antlers of a stag and carved with runes. When a creature fires this arrow, they may whisper the name of an animal that can be summoned by conjure animals. If the arrow strikes a creature, the animal is summoned as per the spell and attacks the target. The summoned animal stays summoned until it is killed, the spell is dispelled by a spell, or the target is killed. The spell is not ended otherwise. The arrow becomes a regular arrow after the spell ends.

While you are silent, making no noise, it continues to float to you and will float through the wall. The moment you make a noise the object falls and the earthglass goes back to cloudy. You can use this item once per day.
