Cigotuvi's Dreadful Rot
|Rots away a part of the caster's flesh to produce a cloud of miasma around them. The miasma slows and powerfully poisons any living creature that lingers within - including the caster, if they tarry after casting. Most living creatures are terrified of miasma and will not willingly enter it.|
Hedge Wizards start with this spell in their libraries.
You are immune to this cloud while you cast this spell, but vulnerable thereafter. I.e. you must move away from the cloud on the turn after you cast this spell to avoid getting hurt.
Most monsters in the early game won't willingly walk through the miasma cloud. In a hallway, you can create a cloud, then attack behind it for a few turns. It can also be used to escape foes, if used in a hallway.
Tips & Tricks
- Works well with Mephitic Cloud, as confused monsters can fall into the cloud. Can also be combined with Lesser Beckoning or a potion of attraction for the same result.
- Undead and nonliving monsters are unaffected by miasma. Also watch out for monsters with ranged attacks
