Warlock Attack 29Caiphon's Abominable Melody

The atonal song of Caiphon, the Dream Whisperer, pierces the fabric between worlds. Your foe covers its ears, closes its eyes, and begins to shriek. Even so, notes of the horrible tune are still faintly audible above the screaming.

Daily        Arcane, Fear, Implement, Psychic
Standard Action      Ranged 10

Target: One creature

Attack: Charisma +2 vs. Fortitude

Hit: 6d8 + Charisma modifier psychic damage, and the target is deafened (save ends), blinded (save ends), and slowed (save ends); a separate save is required to relieve each condition. At the beginning of the target’s turn, if it is still suffering from any one of the conditions you inflicted upon it, it takes another 1d6 + Charisma modifier psychic damage, and you can slide the target a number of spaces equal to your Charisma modifier. Until the end of the encounter, any time you take damage, roll a d20. If you roll 10 or higher, reduce the damage to 0.

Special: Each round a target is still affected by this spell, the ally (or you) closest to the target hears an echo of abominable melody and takes 1d10 psychic damage.
