Medusa’s Bane

School abjuration; Level sorcerer/wizard 4, witch 4


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (tiny fragment of a mirror)


Range personal
Target you
Duration 1 round/level


This spell causes your eyes to take on a silvery mirror-like quality, transforming your eyes into metallic-looking orbs that reflect the world you see.

Your vision is in no way impaired while this spell is in effect, but you are granted immunity to gaze attacks for the spell’s duration. As an immediate action, you can reflect a creature’s gaze back on itself, forcing the target of the gaze attack to save against its own gaze weapon or be affected by it. This reflection bypasses the typical immunity creatures with gaze attacks have to their own race’s gaze attack, but does not bypass any other resistances or immunities the creature might have. Once you choose to reflect a gaze attack in this manner, the effect of medusa’s bane immediately ends.
