[[Summary::Lengthens the casting time of spells and special attacks of target creature to a full-round action.| ]]
|Level:||Bard 3, Sorcerer/Wizard 4|
|Casting time:||1 standard action|
|Range:||Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)|
|Saving Throw:||None and Will negates when a special attack is used (see text)|
This spell inhibits or otherwise distracts its target by inducing lapses of concentration or subtle blocks in the mind, lengthening the activation time of its special abilities. The target must make a Will save every time they attempt to cast a spell, manifest a power, use a maneuver or invoke any sort of other special attack. If they fail the save, the special attack becomes stifled.
A stifled standard action requires the rest of the round to complete, and activates at the start of the creature's next turn. It becomes an effective 1-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity.
A stifled swift action instead requires a standard action to complete, and provokes attacks of opportunity. If the creature has already used its standard action for the round, the ability cannot be used.
This spell persists regardless of successful saves, and only ends when the duration expires. However, an unsuccessful caster level check against the target creature's spell resistance negates the spell entirely.
