I started this blog as a way to force myself to learn the D&D 5e Spells and then other things got added and it started to seem useful. I'm still adding spells, but It's not my day job, so I might be a bit slow about it. ~Dave

image for Mage Hand, a DnD 5th edition cantrip-level spell

Mage Hand

Classes: Bard, Sorcerer, Warlock, Wizard
level: Cantrip
