Antipathy is an enchantment spell repels certain creatures from an object or location.


You cause an object or location to emanate magical vibrations that repel either a specific type of intelligent creature or creatures of a particular alignment, as defined by you. The particular type of creature to be affected must be named specifically (e.g. red dragons, hill giants, wererats, lammasu, cloakers, or vampires. Larger groups, such as "goblinoids," are not specific enough. Likewise, the specific alignment must be named, for example, chaotic evil, chaotic good, lawful neutral, or true neutral.

Creatures of the designated type or alignment feel an overpowering urge to leave the area or to avoid the affected item. A compulsion forces them to abandon the area or item, shunning it and never willingly returning to it while the spell is in effect. A creature who makes a successful saving throw can stay in the area or touch the item, but feels very uncomfortable doing so. This distracting discomfort reduces the creature's Dexterity score by 4 points.

Antipathy counters and dispels sympathy.

This spell cannot be cast upon living creatures.
