This spell transforms the target's hands into long, sharp claws. A Medium-size subject of this spell is able to inflict 2d8 points of slashing damage as a normal melee attack and is considered armed for the duration of the spell. The subject also suffers a -2 circumstance penalty to all Charisma-based skill checks for the duration of the spell due to the fearsome appearance of the claws.
Larger or smaller subjects of this spell gain a proportionately larger or smaller claw attack when using this spell (see the Monster Manual, page 291).
Arcane material component: The hand or paw of any clawed creature.
