By chanting an arcane formula a sorcerer causes an opponent’s eyes to bulge outward, then vanish inside the skull during the round of utterance (Fortitude save negates; otherwise the character is blind); after that his weapons and armor crumble away in a shower of corroded flakes in the second round (Will save negates). Then, in the third round, every bone in the victim’s body pops and twists as if a dozen heavy mallets struck him at once (Fortitude save negates; character drops to 1d10 hit points; may have to make a save against massive damage). Finally, during the fourth round, the victim collapses as his blood turns to crimson dust (Fortitude save negates, otherwise character is dead).
