|This spell attempts to lower its target's metabolic rate, inducing hypothermic hibernation. It may have side effects on cold-blooded creatures.|
Ensorcelled Hibernation is a level 2 Hexes/Ice Magic spell which knocks out a single target for a short time, allowing you to flee or stab them more easily. Although hibernating monsters receive a penalty to their checks against your Stealth score, they may still awaken as normal as you spend time in their LOS or make noise, and successfully injuring a hibernating monster wakes it immediately. It is a very common spell for enchanters to learn, but can be useful for others.
A sleeping monster that is also confused starts to sleepwalk.
Monsters that awaken from this spell become "sleep wary" and cannot be placed in hibernation again for a few dozen turns.
