Eternity of Torture
The subject’s body is twisted and warped, wracked forever with excruciating pain.
Book of Vile Darkness 3.5
By Monte Cook
Level: Pain 9
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One creature
Saving Throw: Fortitude partial
Spell Resistance: Yes
The subject is rendered helpless, but ‘as long as the spell continues’ it is sustained and has no need for food, drink, or air. The subject does not age – all the better to ensure a true eternity of unimaginable torture.
The subject takes 1 point of drain to each ability score each day until all scores are reduced to 0 (except Constitution, which stays at 1). The subject cannot heal or regenerate. Lastly, the subject is completely unaware of its surroundings, insensate to anything but the excruciating pain.
A single Fortitude saving throw is all that stands between a target and this horrible spell. However, even if the saving throw is successful, the target still feels terrible (but temporary) pain. The target takes 5d6 points of damage immediately and takes a -4 circumstance penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks for 1 round per level of the caster.
