This spell allowed the caster to perform gaze attacks on three or more victims, one at a time. The intended targets had to be alive (not undead), in sight, and within 45 ft (14 m). More experienced casters could extend the range and duration, allowing more time to attack more targets. Each victim got a chance to resist the magic of this spell and, if successful, suffer no ill effects.
The caster could choose between a charm effect, very similar to the charm monster spell, or a confusion effect for each victim in turn, until the spell duration expired or until no more targets were available, whichever came first.
As a harmless but dramatic side-effect of this spell, the caster's eyes turned jet black with irises shaped like skulls.
Only verbal and somatic components were required to cast this spell.
