This spell inflicts excruciating agony on a character. The magician makes stabbing motions with his hands and makes a Spellcasting Test against the target’s Spell Defense. If successful, the target is wracked with crippling waves of agony. Each round, the magician concentrates to make an Effect Test against the target’s Willpower Test. If successful, the target is overcome by the pain and cannot perform any actions that round. While doubled over in agony, the target is considered Knocked Down. The spell has no effect on creatures that don’t feel pain or are used to or inured against it. This includes undead, most Horrors and Horror constructs, and blood elves. If used against cadaver men (see the Gamemaster’s Guide, p. 278) it immediately sends them into a frenzy, but doesn’t immobilize them.
