Conjuration (Creation) [Force]
One touched book or written work
Permanent or until discharged; until released or 1d4 days + one day/level
; see text
When you cast sepia snake sigil, a small symbol appears in the text of one written work such as a book, scroll, or map. The text containing the symbol must be at least twenty-five words long. When anyone reads the text containing the symbol, the sepia snake springs into being and strikes the reader, provided there is line of effect between the symbol and the reader.
Simply seeing the enspelled text is not sufficient to trigger the spell; the subject must deliberately read it. The target
is entitled to a save to evade the snake's strike. If it succeeds, the sepia snake
dissipates in a flash of brown light
accompanied by a puff of dun-colored smoke and a loud noise. If the target
fails its save, it is engulfed in a shimmering amber field of force and immobilized until released, either at your command
or when 1d4 days + one day per caster level
While trapped in the amber field of force, the subject does not age
, breathe, grow hungry, sleep
, or regain spells. It is preserved in a state of suspended animation, unaware of its surroundings. It can be damaged by outside forces (and perhaps even killed), since the field provides no protection against physical injury. However, a dying subject does not lose hit points
or become stable until the spell ends.
The hidden sigil cannot be detected by normal observation, and detect magic
reveals only that the entire text is magical.
A dispel magic
can remove the sigil. An erase
spell destroys the entire page of text.
Sepia snake sigil
can be cast in combination with other spells that hide
or garble text, such as secret page.
500 gp worth of powdered amber, a scale from any snake, and a pinch of mushroom spores.
