This spell functions like symbol of death, except that all creatures of 10 HD or less within 60 feet of the symbol of sleep instead fall into a catatonic slumber for 3d6x10 minutes.

Unlike with the sleep spell, sleeping creatures cannot be awakened by non-magical means before this time expires.

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of sleep has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of sleep 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.
