No violence, face-full of water, or kiss will wake the target of the cursed slumber. The target creature falls into a magical sleep with no need of food or water (although it must still breathe). The target continues to age normally and can die of old age. This spell is a curse and can only be removed by remove curse or related spells.

If the target remains asleep for at least 1 year, the spell grants benefits to spellcasters in its vicinity.

All arcane and psychic spellcasters within 30 feet of the sleeping target gain a +2 competence bonus on Knowledge (arcana) checks and Spellcraft checks.

Treat the caster level of any arcane or psychic spell cast within 30 feet of the sleeping target as 1 higher if the target has been asleep at least 1 year. Caster level increases from multiple cursed creatures are not cumulative.
