2013 Preview #2: Sepulchral Swaths of Tanoth-Gha

Now, you might be asking, “Wait, what? Didn’t you preview this last time?”

Well, you’d be right, but since it’s been a while since we gave you any actual product, we thought it’d be nice to give you not just a teaser preview of the contents but an honest-to-goodness freebie preview of one of the crunchy bits within, plus a special offer. First, the preview, the last of the spells named in the prior preview:

Wasted Years

School necromancy (curse); Level antipaladin 4, cleric 5, sorcerer/wizard 6, witch 5

Casting Time 1 standard action

Components V, S, F (a gnomon, hourglass, or sundial)

Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)

Area one creature

Duration permanent

Saving Throw Fortitude negates; Spell Resistance no

You inflict the curse of the ages upon the target. If this curse causes the target to advance an age category, she takes the penalties to her physical ability scores accompanying that age but does not gain the normal bonuses to her mental ability scores. In addition, the target is filled with a sense of hopelessness and failure as her life slips away. As long as the curse endures, the target gains no benefit from morale bonuses and takes a -2 penalty to saving throws against effects with the emotion descriptor, including fear effects. Whenever the target fails a saving throw against such an effect, she gains 1 Madness point (though she may gain only one Madness point per day in this fashion).

And now, the offer: The first person who can post the connection between the names of two of the spells in this product gets a free copy!
