Description

Impose a -4 penalty on attack rolls, skill checks, and ability checks.

This spell functions like symbol of death, except that each creature within the radius of a symbol of pain instead suffers wracking pains that impose a -4 penalty on attack rolls, skill checks, and ability checks. These effects last for 1 hour after the creature moves farther than 60 feet from the symbol.

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of pain has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of pain simply remains active for 10 minutes per caster level.

This spell requires mercury and phosphorus, plus powdered diamond and opal worth a total of 1,000 gp.

This spell can be made permanent.
