Campaign Design - Spells: Nethergaze

Nethergaze (adapted from Relics & Rituals)

Level: Sorcerer/Wizard 5
Components: V, S, M
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Target, Effect, or Area: You
Duration: 1 minute per caster level (D)
Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
Spell Resistance: Yes

Nethergaze causes your eyes to become cold orbs of purple misty light. When an undead creature meets you gaze, the connection between the creature and the negative energy plane is impaired, causing damage and momentarily eliminating all abilities related to that connection.

You obtain a gaze attack that affects only undead. When an undead creature meets your gaze (a skeleton's lack of eyes is no impediment), it must roll a Fortitude saving throw. A failure results in the undead taking 2d12 points of damage and losing the ability to use any special attacks or qualities related to the negative plane, such as energy drain or ability drain, for 1d3 rounds. If the saving throw is successful, the damage is halved and no loss of powers occurs.

Arcane material component: Two jade "eyeballs" with a light spell upon them. During the light spell duration, they must be covered with a mixture of clay, silver dust, and dirt from a graveyard, then the mixture is baked bard. This item costs a total of 400 shillings.
