- You retch forth vile sounds, as you fondle rotting meat crusted with bitter salt. At the culmination of this spell, you hurl forth a seething, blighted mass of tissue. Choose a square within range, to which you have line of sight and line of effect. The blighted mass you created flies there with unerring accuracy, and bursts into a 20-foot radius spread of horrible corruption (a 9x9 square, affected creatures must have line of effect from the center square).
- This spell corrupts and blights all things. All creatures wholly or partially in the area of effect suffer (Circle 4 damage): 1d6+1 points of damage per character level (max 12d6+12 at character level 12) of necrotic (energy, uncommon) damage. Affected creatures are allowed a saving throw as described above to only take half damage.
- "Natural" creatures (with the subtypes Animal or Plant) suffer a -2 penalty to their saving throw against this spell.
- This spell has no effect on the soil or surrounding plant life.
