Campaign Design - Spells: Listening Ringworm

Listening Ringworm (from Relics & Rituals)

Level: Druid/Spirit Shaman 3
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target, Effect, or Area: Magical sensor
Duration: 1 hour per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (harmless)
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

The caster touches her intended target, making a melee touch attack if cast on an unwilling target. Wherever the caster touches, a small magical, pinkish ringworm appears just beneath the target's skin. The worm grows to about 2 inches in diameter over the next quarter of an hour.

From that point until the spell fades, the caster can concentrate and hear any sounds around the target as though the ringworm was one of the caster's ears. Clothing or the sound of scratching might muffle the reception. The infection lasts 1 hour per caster level, itches slightly, and is visible as a discoloration of the skin. Spells that cure disease or dispel magic will remove the infection.

The spell fails if the target is not naturally susceptible to epidermal infections - for example it it has no skin or it is made of stone.
