Fish Out of Water
“Orcs,” Stork said in a bored tone. “Won’t you deal with them?”
Vistis the Blue Mage clutched his staff and glared from behind his heavily lacquered mask as the vile humanoids approached.
“Well, my little fishes, why are you on dry land?” the illusionist asked the orcs who suddenly stopped and looked at each other.
One by one the orcs clutched at their throats, gasping for air.
Stork drew a dagger and grinned evilly.
Fish Out of Water (Illusionist)
Range: 30′ +5′ per level of illusionist.
Duration: 1 turn per level of illusionist.
When the Fish Out of Water spell is cast upon up to 6 individuals of 4HD or less, or two individuals with 4HD+ the caster introduces the idea into the minds of those affected that they have suddenly changed and are in the wrong environment. This could be immediate, like thinking those affected are aquatic and on dry land, which will cause the subjects to gasp for air, ignoring everything else or more subtle, for example, convincing a group that they have become reptilian in an arctic setting, and they will concentrate on trying to stay warm. No actual damage is done as this is a mind-affecting spell and a saving throw versus spells at -1 is allowed.
