Feast of Ashes

School transmutation [curse]; Level druid 2, psychic 2, witch 2; Bloodline ghoul 2


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (a pinch of ash)


Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft/2 levels)
Targets one creature
Duration 2 days/level (D)
Saving Throw Fortitude negates; Spell Resistance yes


You curse the target with a hunger no food can assuage. On a failed Saving Throw, the target begins to starve. The effects of this spell cannot inflict more nonlethal damage than the target has hit points. No amount of eating can counter the effect and, further, even attempting to eat causes the target to become nauseated for 1 round unless they make a DC 12 Fortitude save. The target still experiences the other normal effects of anything consumed (such as poisons or potions).

Feast of ashes can be removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell, but effects suffered as a result of starvation must be healed by normal means.

Mythic Feast of Ashes

Source PZO1126

On a failed save, the target immediately takes 1d6 points of nonlethal damage per tier. Add your tier to the DC of any further Constitution checks the target attempts to resist the effects of starvation as part of this spell’s effects.

While the curse is in effect, the target gains no benefit from any spell, effect, or item that requires eating, such as the food from a heroes’ feast spell (though the food is still used up when the target eats it).
