Aidon’s Histidine Ungues
Spell Level: Magic-User, 2nd Level
Duration: Special (see below)
By means of this horrid spell, the magic-user transforms one of his arms (his choice) into a terrible, worm-like appendage ending with wickedly sharp, strong pincers. The magic-user can use this monstrous limb to make two different types of attacks:
1. Pincer Attack: This melee attack strikes with a +2 bonus to hit and inflicts 1d8+2 points of damage.
2. Poison Attack: This melee attack strikes with a +1 bonus to hit and inflicts 1d4+1 points of damage. The victim must make a saving throw or become paralyzed for 1d4+1 minutes.
Each use of the arm depletes some of the spell’s magic. When cast, the spell has a number of uses equal to the magic-user’s level. Each pincher attack, whether successful or not, counts as one use. Each poison attack, whether successful or not, counts as two uses. When all uses are depleted, the caster’s arm reverts to its normal form.
