This is a curse placed on Stygian tombs. Those who fall prey to it find themselves surrounded by death. The victim of this spell finds himself subject to tomb toxins, horrible diseases present in the molds and decay of any given tomb. This is an infectious disease that can even affect the victim’s pets and mounts. The sorcerer chooses three inhaled diseases and one injury disease. When the tomb is invaded, those who fall victim to this curse also fall victim to these diseases and, within 1d20 days, are subjected to the injury disease. Regular Fortitude saves are made against these diseases. Some powerful sorcerers who know how to make their spells permanent often protect their tombs with permanent versions of this spell. The experience point cost makes only the most important of tombs worthy of this spell, although almost all tombs proclaim a curse.

Focus: A tomb; the hieroglyphs proclaiming the death of any despoilers must be carved into the doors, walls or seals of the tomb.

Experience Point Cost: 1,000 XP.
