Incredibly Long D&D post showcasing the thing I am working on

I am proud of this

### Standing Stones
_Common_ to _Rare_
_Requires Attunement_

These stones are powerful but immovable. In order to be useful there must be four stones in a Stone Circle, all of which must be attuned to someone. Their powers are only useful when you are in the circle defined by the four plus stones.

*Power Stone:* _Common_ Power Stones are the most common standing stones, but unfortunately are not very useful. They have no powers, but are often used to finish a partial circle.

*Tree Stone:* _Uncommon_ While within the circle you have a permanent Barkskin spell.

*Healing Stone:* _Uncommon_ You may use Lesser Restoration at will while within the circle.

*Sapling Stone:* _Uncommon_ Once per day you may create a sapling within the ring of standing stones. Once you have the sapling you may take it out of the stone circle and plant it. The sapling lasts three days without being planted, and thereafter is a non-magical tree.

*Salve Stone:* _Uncommon_ Within the circle you are counted as having Expertise with Herbalism hits, as well as having a herbalism kit, allowing you to make salves and potions.

*Sacrificial Stone:* _Uncommon_ While within the stone you may cast Sacrificial Cleansing, requiring the material component.

*Beast Stone:* _Rare_ While within the circle you may cast Conjure Animals at will.

*Death Stone:* _Rare_ Once per day you may cast Animate Dead as if using a 5th level spellslot.

*Reincarnation Stone:* _Very Rare_ Once per day, you may cast Reincarnate upon a body within the Stone Circle.

*Dead Stone:* _Very Rare_ Once per day, you may cast Raise Dead upon a body within the Stone Circle.

This reads like a Guide to start your pet shop + plant nursery for retiring druids.

Most of the powers are supposed to be secondary, things that you expect NPCs to have. Like the idea of a grove of druids fleeing to their standing stones, only to summon an army of bears to kill the intruder is hella cool. Also, having druids make trees out of thin air to reforest a damaged area feels like something they would do.

The whole thing is spells for like... plowing fields and irrigation. It comes out of me trying to populate the spellbooks of two NPC wizards who had been in hiding for 10 years and never really in a fight.

I can't believe how close I was with my joke reply.
