Hey community,I need help developing (or finding amidst the splat) a spell or curse (works either way) that magically ages a person one whole age category permanently. That is, from Young > Mature > Middle-aged > Old > Venerable.
Also, they would also suddenly gain ranks in a skill as if they had in fact lived those additional years (as house rule, older character are entitled to more skill points). So, ideally some combination of Necromancy and Chronomancy.
Be sure to include proviso that you can only have a character magically aged by a category at a time.
I'd have the extra skill apply as if they had gained a permanent +2 bonus to intelligence via headband: they gain a full set of ranks in 1 skill (caster's choice?)
5th level seems about right for spell level. Note that Sands of Time does not grant bonuses for aging, so you might not want to say "functions as Sands of Time, but permament."
For flavour, you could say they are trapped in a super-fast-time demiplane for 20 years (or whatever appropriate to the race) forced to... say, brew tea.So they gain all the appropriate ranks in Profession: herbalist. But they also would really rather not brew or drink or even talk about tea anymore (there you have a reason for the ranks, and your trauma, all neatly wrapped in one)
