Casting Time 1 standard action
Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target one creature
Saving Throw Will negates; Spell Resistance yes
Song of Hastur expends the target’s highest-level spell slot available. If there is more than one spell slot available of that level, one is eliminated at random. (A caster only loses one spell, regardless of how many times it has prepared the same spell.) Spell-like abilities are not affected by this spell.
Any spell or spell slot lost because of this spell is treated as if the caster had failed a concentration check while trying to cast it—the spell slot is wasted and the spell has no effect, but is recovered normally the next time the character prepares spells or regains spell slots.
