This spell strikes its targets with a nasty sting, as if from a very large bee. You create one sting for every three caster levels (minimum 1, maximum 6 at 18th level). Each bee sting inflicts 1 point of piercing damage, as if from a magical weapon for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. If this damage is not somehow negated (such as by damage reduction), the subject is poisoned with weak venom that inflicts 1 Con damage, with a Fortitude save allowed at the spell’s DC to negate it. The damage and venom from multiple stings is cumulative, though a subject saves only once even if subjected to several stings by a single casting.
