Marksman’s Malady

This curse is designed so that all the archers who had entered a tournament in his honor were afflicted. Alas, one of the archers’ misfired arrows ended up in his princely throat.

Type curse; Save Will DC 14; Frequency 1/day

EFFECTS

This curse impacts the victim’s ability to make ranged attacks (including ranged touch attacks). The victim takes a –4 penalty on ranged attack rolls. If the target of such an attack is adjacent to at least one other creature, there is a 50% chance the attack targets one of those creatures instead (determined randomly); apply the attack roll to the new target’s AC to see if the attack hits.
