Description

The brisk, delicate phrases of this spell sound almost too dainty for verbalization. Upon completion of the fragile declarations of this spell, the caster must choose a target creature within Long range as described above, as well as a single damage class to make the target creature susceptible to, which must be chosen at the time the spell is cast:
The target must succeed on a Fortitude save as described above, or become defenseless to all damage types of the selected class. A target that succeeds on their Fort save is instead treated as Vulnerable against the selected damage class (and all damage types therein).
Synergy: This spell lays a charge upon its target. If they are then subject to another charged effect, as the brittle, crispy energies of this fell dwemomer tear from their forms, they suffer (Circle 9 damage): 1d6+3 points of damage per character level (max 25d6+75 at character level 25) as fracturing (physical, rare) damage.
This spell lays an arcane charge on its target(s). If the targets are something other than you or another creature (such as an object or area), the spell lays an arcane charge on you, the caster. Targets which already have an arcane charge present must choose which to keep if the new spell has the same charge type. Only one arcane charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
