Campaign Design - Spells: Hand of Gangyn

Hand of Gangyn (adapted from the Complete Guide to Drow; originally Hand of Tororthun)
Necromancy [Poison]

Level: Poison 9
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: One living creature
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (see text)
Spell Resistance: Yes

Wen this spell is cast, a great explosion of poisonous energy is released from the caster towards a single living target. if the target fails its Fortitude save, it dies in a hideous exposion of entrails and globs of sticky poison. A creature killed in this manner cannot be resurrected by any means short of a wish spell. Constructs, undead, and creatures immune to critical hits cannot be harmed by this attack.

The explosion requires all creatures within a 10-foot radius of the victim to make a reflex save. If this fails, those creatures suffer 2d12 points of damage from flying bone fragments and an additional 10d6 points of poison damage. Those who succeed at this second save take no damage. Creatures who die from this poison damage can be raised from the dead normally.
