Stinking Cloud

Edit Page Content

A bank of fog billows out from the point you designate. The cloud obscures all sight, including Darkvision, beyond 5 feet. A Creature within 5 feet has Concealment (attacks have a 20% miss chance). Creatures farther away have total Concealment (50% miss chance, and the attacker can't use sight to locate the target).

The vapors of the stinking cloud are nauseating. Living creatures in the cloud become nauseated. This condition lasts as long as the Creature is in the cloud and for 1d4+1 rounds after it leaves. (Roll separately for each nauseated character.) Any Creature that succeeds on its save but remains in the cloud must continue to save each round on your turn. This is a Poison effect.

A moderate wind (11+ mph) disperses the cloud in 4 rounds; a strong wind (21+ mph) disperses the cloud in 1 round.

Stinking cloud can be made permanent with a permanency spell. A permanent stinking cloud dispersed by wind reforms in 10 minutes.

The spell does not function underwater.
