Cause the Bends


Components: V, S

Casting Time: 1 action

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

Range: Touch

Area of Effect: 1 creature

Saving Throw: Con / negates effect

One creature you touch is afflicted with pain from high-pressure gas bubbles forced into its bloodstream. The creature must make a Constitution saving throw. On a successful save, the spell has no effect. If the saving throw fails, then the creature takes 2d6 necrotic damage at the end of each of its turns and it must subtract 1d4 from its attack rolls and ability checks for the duration of the spell. The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns (after taking damage from the spell); a successful save ends the spell.
