Should this really be a L9 spell? Consider acid fog, which does 2d6 points of acid damage for 1 round/level, offers no saving throw or spell resistance, and is a level 6 spell. I'd say, bring this spell down to L6. 1d4 is nothing spectacular, definately doesn't merit a L9 spell. Unless there's some other gotcha that isn't in the description as written...? --Othtim 14:18, 21 February 2008 (MST)

The closest thing I can see is that it seems to suggest that those caught by the spell cannot escape (effectively inside an airless Forcecage). Although if it is suffocation, it doesn't follow the rules for suffocation (perhaps for the better, since you're effectively dead in three turns once your breath runs out/you fail your Con check.. this may be overpowered, but then again people can hold their breath for a while, especially if they have Con). One thing about holding your breath is you can't Disintegrate your captive walls unless you've got Silent Spell going on.
What do you think? Assuming it does entrap its victims that is, and if it does actually suffocate them as well as the damage. -- Eiji 14:31, 21 February 2008 (MST)
