School necromancy; Level cleric/oracle 5, sorcerer/wizard 4


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (a broken bone)


Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one corporeal creature or object
Duration instantaneous and 1 min./level (see text)
Saving Throw Fortitude partial (see text); Spell Resistance yes


The target’s bones or exoskeleton shiver and splinter, dealing 1d6 hp damage per caster level (maximum 15d6) to the target, which is also exhausted for 1 min. per caster level from the pain and exertion of the transformation.

If the target makes its save, it takes half damage and is fatigued rather than exhausted. Objects made of bone, chitin, or similar material take half again as much (+50%) damage from this spell. This spell has no effect on creatures that lack both skeletons and hard carapaces.
