The creature you touch has its energy sapped from its body, simulating thirst/starvation.

Each round on your turn (including the round in which you touched the creature), the victim must succeed on a Constitution check (DC 10) or suffer 1d6 points of nonlethal damage as if from thirst/starvation. Each round, the check DC increases by 1. Additionally, a creature gains no sustenance from drink/food or magic effects such as a ring of sustenance for as long as it suffers from this spell.

Note Damage from thirst/starvation is lethal if the creature is unconscious, and cannot be restored (even by magic) until the creature has taken in enough drink/food to sustain it for one day (1 gallon of fluid/1 lb. of food for a Medium creature). As long as a creature has damage due to thirst/starvation, it is fatigued. Creatures who are naturally exempt from drinking/eating are unaffected by this spell.
