Choke (3.5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]|
|Casting time:||1 standard action|
|Duration:||1 round/level with Concentration check to maintain|
|Saving Throw:||Will save|
The subject starts suffocating, and cannot take any actions. Each round on its turn, the subject may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. (This is a full-round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity.) A winged creature who is paralyzed cannot flap its wings and falls. A swimmer can’t swim and may drown.
If the subject doesn't breathe, then it does not suffocate, it just cannot speak.
Note: This suffocation is forced and without warning. The subject has had no time to hold their breath. The DC for this save is 10 + casters Charisma mod.
