Torment Puzzle (3.5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||1 minute|
|Range:||Close (25ft.+5ft./2 levels)|
|Target:||One living creature|
|Saving Throw:||Fortitude partial|
The body of a subject rips apart. A successful save results in the subject taking only 1d6 points of damage per caster level (maximum 25d6) and becoming stunned for 1 round.
A subject who fails the Fortitude save has the body ripped to pieces. Each piece of the body is treated as a helpless tiny creature, their numbers totaling twice the HD of the subject. The torn body remnants initially fill space the same as the original subject, or area needed for a creature of one size category larger. Each body part functions as if they were still whole; for example, a piece of a mouth can make vocal means of communication. Any damage dealt to each body part count as damage towards the whole. Every round, the subject regains half of her full HP. The subject can eat or breathe as if the body is still whole, but she can also suffer from choking or starving without dying. The subject does not die from age, disease, or damage, even if she suffers from the effect. A spell with a death effect can slay the subject momentarily, as can damage equal to her total HP, but she comes back to life within 1d6 minutes returning to 0 hit points. Miracle can be used to remove this spell or kill the subject for good, but this effect requires 5000XP.
If the subject succeeds the initial save by more than the level of the caster, she takes no damage as the spell backfires on the caster. The caster must make the same Fortitude save that the subject succeeded, or take 10d6 damage.
