DESCRIPTION

Anytime a harmless (so noted by a spell’s saving throw description) spell of 3rd level or lower is cast within a covetous aura’s area of effect, you may choose to immediately gain the benefit of that spell as if it had also targeted you. The intended target still gains the effect of the spell. You gain the benefits of this duplicated spell only if the caster is in range of the covetous aura. You are considered the caster of the additional spell effect. If the effect allows for multiple targets other than yourself, you cannot use the stolen spell effect to target other creatures—a covetous aura only aids you. Once you choose to gain the benefit of another spell, the covetous aura immediately ends. Rumors hold that this unusual spell was invented thousands of years ago by a powerful spellcaster who was constantly jealous of other spellcasters’ abilities.

Mythic Covetous Aura

The duration of the covetous aura increases to 1 minute per level or until discharged. You may gain the benefits of spells of 5th level or lower cast within the aura’s area of effect. You can gain the effects of two separate spells, after which the mythic covetous aura ends.

Augmented (6th): If you expend two uses of mythic power, the duration increases to 10 minutes per level or until discharged. You may gain the benefits of spells of 7th level or lower cast within the aura’s area of effect. When you gain the benefit of a spell, the original spell is immediately targeted with a greater dispel magic spell at your caster level. If the dispel check succeeds, the spell ends for any of the original recipients in the area of your covetous aura.
