Dancing to the growling and rumbling of drums, the sorcerer paces about the subject of his curse, waving his arms in weaving, cryptic patterns. He then throws a skull next to the victim. A female assistant, who is named the Bride of whatever spirit or god guides the sorcerer then performs a writhing, spinning, bestial dance – and the skull dances with her, bounding and spinning like a living thing. This spell counteracts attempts to ward or dispel a spell and may, in some cases, stave off the rule of impermanence. Casting the dance of the skull adds a +4 to a sorcerer’s opposed magic attack roll if someone attempts to counter a spell protected by the dance of the skull. The spell also increases the sorcerer’s magic attack roll by +4 on any secondary saves a spell might allow.

Focus: Female assistant (to be the Bride) and a skull.
