DESCRIPTION

You can slay creatures with one shot. If your prey’s total Hit Dice are less than or equal to half your archer level, on a failed Fortitude save, your prey must make a second Fortitude save or be killed. On a successful Fortitude save, your prey takes damage equal to half its current hp, or equal to your normal arrow damage, whichever is greater.

If your prey’s total Hit Dice exceed half your archer level, on a failed Fortitude save your prey takes damage equal to half its current hp, or equal to your normal arrow damage, whichever is greater. On a successful Fortitude save, your prey takes only your normal arrow damage.

This spell affects all the arrows you shoot during each round it remains in effect. Although this spell can kill outright, it is not a “death attack;” it simply helps your arrows strike as effectively as possible. Therefore, it does not prevent the subsequent use of raise dead or similar magic.
