Campaign Design - Spells: Fang Trap

Fang Trap (from Serpent Kingdoms)

Level: Cleric/Favored Soul 4, Sorcerer/Wizard 4
Components: V, S, DF/M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target, Effect, or Area: Object touched or area up to 5 square feet per caster level
Duration: Permanent until discharged (D)
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes

While casting this spell, you physically trace the area or handle the object being trapped. A fang trap functions like a glyph of warding except that it cannot be made to activate on the basis of faith or alignment, and you can't be caught in your own fang trap.

A fang trap is usually cast on a specific spot, such as a doorway or an area of floor. It can be set to distinguish between humans and scaled ones, or between being wearing particular items and those who are not. The trigger can't be a symbol, but may be one or more specific items (for example, "six metal rings on digits, no more and no less").

When a fang trap discharges, the subject is held immobile for 1 round. A successful Fortitude saving throw frees the subject after that period without further effect. A failed save means the subject takes 1d4 points of bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage per caster level from the bite of a pair of unseen jaws.

Arcane material component: A fang from any snake.
