Before we head out, I weave a little bit of geometric patterns in front of Yasha and I give you the Gift of Alacrity again.
Liam O'Brien describing the casting of Gift of Alacrity.[4]

Gift of Alacrity is a 1st-level divination Dunamancy spell.[2]


I mutter a few words and your vision, like, quintuples for a moment and just shoots past your eyes [...]
Liam O'Brien describing the experience of Gift of Alacrity.[5]

Gift of Alacrity takes a minute to cast, requiring verbal and somatic components. The caster touches a willing creature and grants them a heightened reaction time for the next eight hours. Mechanically speaking, Gift of Alacrity grants the target a 1d8 bonus to Initiative rolls throughout its duration.[1][2]
