Eringya's Noxious Bog
|Causes the caster to release a torrent of sludge that transforms nearby areas into a toxic bog. The sludge damages and poisons all monsters, even those resistant to poison. The bog cannot form on areas adjacent to solid features, nor on areas that lack solid floor, like deep water or lava. The transformation is temporary and cannot be sustained out of the caster's sight. Spellpower will increase how long the bog lingers.|
Eringya's Noxious Bog is a Level 6 Poison Magic/Transmutations spell that temporarily converts tiles around the user into toxic sludge; this affects all empty floor tiles within range, but will not convert the user's tile, nor will it affect tiles next to solid features like walls, trees, or statues. It also cannot affect tiles that lack solid ground, such as deep water or lava; it will, however, cover non-solid features such as stairs, escape hatches, or shops.
The sludge acts similarly to shallow water, but also deals damage to and poisons anything swimming or wading through it. Poison-resistant or -immune creatures will still take damage, but to a lesser degree. Creatures that fly over the bog are not affected.
Eringya's Noxious Bog is of no use in areas without a large, open space.
Without a source of flight, you can potentially trap yourself behind your own bog. If you must cross your own bog without flight, a source of poison resistance or immunity will mitigate some of the damage.
