CASTING

Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S

EFFECT

Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one living creature
Duration instantaneous
Saving Throw Fortitude negates; Spell resistance yes

DESCRIPTION

This spell functions as contagion, except the victim cannot overcome the disease without magic—making the required number of saves does not cure it.

The DC to remove the disease with magic is equal to the save DC + 5.

Mythic Contagion

The affected target is highly contagious. Any creature it touches or that touches it with natural weapons or unarmed strikes must save or contract the disease.

The save DC for these targets is equal to the spell’s DC – 4.

The target can’t spread this disease to you.

Augmented (7th): If you expend five uses of mythic power, the spell targets every living creature within a 1-mile radius.

You can select one creature per caster level within your line of sight; these creatures are unaffected by the spell.
