Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S


Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 round/level
Saving Throw none and Will partial; Spell Resistance yes


Recorded only in desecrated tombs by worshipers of Azathoth, this spell reduces the target’s ability scores to 3 (unless they were already lower). The target can follow simple instruction and recognizes friends. It cannot cast spells and its caster level for any spell-like abilities is reduced by 6 (the spell-like abilities can’t be cast if the caster level is reduced below 1). The target receives no saving throw to resist the spell initially, but can attempt a Will saving throw as a full-round action each round to regain its faculties. This spell can be ended early by a heal, limited wish, miracle, or wish spell.
