Blast of pain was a divine spell that bolstered the health, strength, and endurance of a protected creature.[1]


The spell could be cast by clerics who commanded the combat and necromantic spheres. It was commonly used priests of Ilmater.[1]


As its name suggested, the blast of pain spell inflicted intense pain on its victim, via a ray of smoky grey light shot from caster to the target. A creature that succumbed to the pain was left writhing in agony for some time, their nervous system damaged, incapable of action or coherent thought, and senseless to goings-on around them. One who resisted was merely slowed both mentally and physically, and harmed less, before the spell passed.[1]
