Other ways to learn:


  • If a Wizard casts False Life on themselves, this spell must remain Prepared. Removing False Life from the Prepared Spells list will immediately remove the Temporary HP added by False Life. If applied by using (not scribing) a scroll, the caster does not need to keep this spell Prepared.
  • The incantation for False Life is Dum Vita Est, Spes Est, Latin for "While there is life, there is hope".
