4th Level Kiss of Torment (Necromancy) Sphere: Combat, Necromantic Range: Touch Component5: V, S Duration: 3 rounds Casting Time: 7 Area of Effect: One creature of size L or less Saving Throw: Special
To enact kiss of torment, the caster must successfully touch the bare flesh of the victim with his or her bare flesh; this touch can be of any type from a light brush with the fingertips to an actual kiss.
Kiss of torment attacks the nervous system of the body, overwhelming it with phantom pain that causes the victim to writhe uncontrollably and suffer 4d6 points of damage. Typically, tar- gets of this spell can retain their footing and their grasp on wielded or carried items, but can do little else; attacking or uttering incantations is impossible. The victim is allowed a saving throw vs. spell at the end of the first round, and if it succeeds, the spell ends. If it fails, the writhing continues for a second round and mother saving throw is necessary. If this second saving throw succeeds, no damage is taken in the second round and the spell ends, but if it falls, an additional 2d6 points of damage is inflicted upon the victim, the writhing continues for a third round, and another saving throw is neces- sary. If this third saving throw succeeds, no damage is taken in the third round and the spell ends, but if it fails, an additional ld6 points of damage is inflicted upon the victim.
