The Moonlord table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these moonlord spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest. For example, if you know the 1st-level spell burning hands and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast burning hands using either slot.

When you do so, choose a number of spells equal to your Charisma modifier + your moonlord level (min. 1 spell). These must be of a level for which you have spell slots. You may change your list of prepared spells whenever you finish a long rest; doing so requires 1 minute of meditation per spell level of the chosen the spells.
