Disruptive Aura

School evocation; Level sorcerer/wizard 8


Casting Time 1 round
Components V, S


Range long (400 ft. + 40 ft./level)
Area creatures within a 10-ft.-radius burst
Duration 1 round/level (D)
Saving Throw Will negates; see text; Spell Resistance yes


A warping, prismatic field surrounds and outlines the subjects, causing creatures to take a �20 penalty on all Stealth checks (no save). Additionally, targets must make a Will saving throw each round the spell is in effect.

On a failed roll, the target’s next spell or use of a spell-like ability or magic item is suppressed, as if affected by a successful, targeted dispel magic spell. If the save is successful, however, the target can cast spells and use spell-like abilities that round as normal.

All spells and spell-like abilities are potentially subject to disruptive aura’s suppression. (Because of the powerful nature of the energy it harnesses, disruptive aura can affect spells not normally affected by dispel magic.) Distressing Resonance

School evocation [sonic]; Level sorcerer/wizard 4


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S


Range 30 ft.

Effect 30-ft. radius of subsonic sound
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw Fortitude partial; Spell Resistance yes


You create a field of subsonic vibrations around you.

The field is mobile and moves with you. Creatures within or entering this area after you cast this spell must make a Fortitude save or become nauseated while they remain within the area of effect. On a successful save, the target is instead sickened.

These conditions persist for 1d4 rounds after a creature exits the area of effect. This sound is too low for most humanoid creatures to hear. However, the sound does not have to be heard to affect those in the spell’s radius, and it will work on deafened creatures. The vibrations also interfere with tremorsense, which is negated within the area of effect.
