Symbol of Sleep




Symbol of Sleep

Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]

Level: Clr 5, Sor/Wiz 5
Saving Throw: Will negates

This spell functions like symbol of death, except that all creatures of 10 HD or less within 60 feet of the symbol of sleep instead fall into a catatonic slumber for 3d6×10 minutes. Unlike with the sleep spell, sleeping creatures cannot be awakened by nonmagical means before this time expires.

Unlike symbol of death, symbol of sleep has no hit point limit; once triggered, a symbol of sleep simply remains active for 10 minutes per caster level.

Note: Magic traps such as symbol of sleep are hard to detect and disable. A rogue (only) can use the Search skill to find a symbol of sleep and Disable Device to thwart it. The DC in each case is 25 + spell level, or 30 for symbol of sleep.

Material Component

Mercury and phosphorus, plus powdered diamond and opal with a total value of at least 1,000 gp.
