This spell removes moisture from all inanimate objects in the area of effect. Wooden objects in the area become dry and brittle, possibly crushing themselves under their own weight. Food becomes stale and hard, though still edible. In the case of fruits, this could actually increase the amount of time they remain edible. Puddles and small pools of water dry out. Canteens and waterskins are emptied of liquid. Affected items worn by creatures and all magical items receive saving throws to avoid the effects of the object. Failure causes 3d6 points of damage to the object.

Arcane material component: A handful of dry earth.
