Spell level: sorcerer/wizard 5

Innate level: 5
School: conjuration
Descriptor: death
Components: verbal, somatic
Range: long (40 meters)
Area of effect: large (5 meter radius)
Duration: 1 round / 2 levels
Save: fortitude special
Spell resistance: yes

Description: A billowing cloud of noxious vapors settles over the area. Its effects vary according to the hit dice of the affected creatures:

hit dice effects
1-3 instant death
4-6 fortitude save or death
7+ 1d10 acid damage/round


  • Creatures that enter the cloud will suffer 1d10 acid damage and a 50% movement speed decrease. (For targets with less than 7 hit dice, a simple fortitude save—not versus death—negates the speed decrease.)
  • Creatures that block the death effect (from immunity to death magic) will not suffer the movement speed decrease nor the initial acid damage. This is likely an oversight.
  • The per round acid damage is rolled once each round, not once per target, and it applies regardless of hit dice.
