I know that a single target is an automatic success, but with regard to “Heal - multiple targets”, is there a ranged AOE? Also, the number of people affected, is that based on site or range?
To be clear, the number of disadvantage dice is based on number of people to be healed, correct?
Also, since spell casting is based on feats that act like 5e Cantrips, do PCs ever need to rest?
If HP can be healed over turns of Heal spell from an ally, does that mean that HP is really only an issue in combat?
Stamina is a better description for HP in many ways
There are multiple ways to do AoE which are all covered in the Combat Chapter. Your max range that you can reach with your attribute is also detailed there (for non-physical = 1-3: 25’ / 4-6: 50’ / 7+: 75’)
Disadvantage is calculated based on what type of AoE you are doing.
Ranged multi-target = Disadvantage is the number of targets
Cube multi-target = Disadvantage is 1 per 5’ length of one side (15’ cube is 3 disadvantage)
Line multi-target = Disadvantage per line segment, lines are 5’ wide, 10’ long, & 10’ tall
Hera has Creation 4; Heal (Boon Focus - Tier 1)
If she wants to “cast” Heal on herself AND 2 targets that are 10’ away from her, she would roll:
1d20 + 3d10 (keep 1) for the success roll
and 1d4 for hp recovered.
Would I add 2x disadvantage dice for the two targets or 3x dis dice for a cube of 15’?
So, why is it PL4 for Heal when I only have Tier 1 for Boon Focus? Is power Level always determined by the attribute? So, based on the Boon CR, if she chose a lower PL, say 2, she’d have more of a chance of success but heal less. What happens to the 2 adv dice to her initial Heal roll when assigning dis dice because of multiples?
Boon focus is completely different. I wasn’t even talking as if you have that.
If you have an Attribute, you have all the boons and banes associated with that Attribute by default. The only limits to what you can access are based on what you choose b/c of your character backstory or what the GM feels is appropriate for your character.
Boon Focus allows you to Auto-Succeed at the highest PL you have access to when you single Target (so a 1d10!! healing).
You gain Advantage 2 when you are rolling otherwise. This means in the first example, if you are targetting 3 people, then you actually only have disadvantage 1.
3 Disadvantage from multi-targetting, 2 Advantage from Boon Focus = 1 disadvantage

WTH? So confused…so she doesn’t actually need boon focus just to cast Heal? She “unlocks access” to heal because of her Creation 4? Also, what limits the number of starting Boons?
There are no limits. Instead, you have to roll to succeed on Boons, and as a result you can do it more often.
In DnD, heal and spells succeed when you cast them, attack spells in DnD have to beat the AC or Saving Throw.
In OL, boons do not auto-succeed without Boon Focus, and attacks still have to beat a defense. There are no limits to the amount of Damaging ATtacks, Bane Attacks, or Boon Invocations you can do. However, Action economy is very important in OL, and most combats are designed to last only a few rounds.
Thanks so much. I will hang out in the discord room when I get home from work…cannot access here. At any rate, I’ve taken too much of your time. I will examine the document you linked and re-examine all the site listing again. I hope the book is more detailed than the site’s basic knowledge. Forgive my being stuck in the mire, I’m 37 years into the DnD mindset.
“If I have Creation 4, and wish to use the Heal boon on myself AND 2 party members 10 feet away, can i do this?”
Yes, you can, and in a number of ways:
Multi-targeting as mentioned. You get disadvantage 1 x number of targets, so 3. As your character has the Boon Focus feat in Heal at level 1, they get Advantage 2 in any multi-target attempt. These cancel against each other leaving you with a Creation roll of Disadvantage 1 to Heal all 3 of you in one go.
Area Targeting: If you can pack the group in tighter, (or maybe get them lined up?) You can use either an Square, Cone or Line to catch all of you. Squares and Cones get Disadvantage 1 per 5’, while a Line gets Disadvantage 1 per 10’ (and does not have to be straight, can segment…). In this case same as above figure out how much Disadvantage goes against your 2 Advantage for the Boon Focus and make the roll.
Aura: So useful, yet so neglected, the aura boon could turn you into a healing beacon, automatically bestowing the heal boon on anyone within 5’ of you (At Creation 4). As your companions are 5 feet away, you would have to get closer, but as you are radiating a boon it affects you as well, and will AGAIN next round as long as you use a minor action to maintain it.
