A charnel stench arises from the ground in the affected area, causing a powerful life-sapping effect that robs all within the area of 1 point of temporary Strength damage for every two levels of the caster (to a maximum of -10). Any who resist successfully suffer only half of the ability damage. In either case, the lost Strength points return at an accelerated rate of one point/hour.
Material Component: Ash from the body of a sentient creature consumed by fire.
