Description

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.
