Resonating Word

School transmutation [sonic]; Level bard 5, sorcerer/wizard 7

Casting Time 1 standard action

Components V

Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)

Target one creature

Duration 3 rounds

Saving Throw Fortitude partial; Spell Resistance yes

You speak a terrible word of power, setting up potentially lethal vibrations in the chosen target. The target must save once each round on your turn, and the effects grow stronger for each saving throw the creature fails.

On the first round, the target takes 5d6 points of sonic damage and is staggered for 1 round. A successful save halves the damage and negates the staggered effect.

On the second round, the target takes 5d6 points of damage and is stunned for 1 round. A successful save halves the damage and negates the stunning effect.

On the third round, the target takes 10d6 points of damage and is stunned for 1d4+1 rounds. A successful save halves the damage and negates the stunning effect.

The resonating word has no power after the third round, even if the spell's duration is increased.
