Shrivelling

A powerful spell of attack. Casting it costs a variable number of magic points and half that many Sanity points (round up any fraction). It takes two rounds to intone. To succeed, the caster must then use the resistance table to overcome the target’s magic points with the remainder of his or her own. If successful, the spell blasts and blackens the target – subtract 1 hit point from the target for each magic point invested in the spell.
