Bug Notes[]

General: Ability checks are not decreased. The abilities of a target creature are not altered, which is noted in the script as "Ability scores are no longer reduced by two. This was an incorrect interpretation of the rules." on line 89. The description should be changed to match the script.

Line 58/115: This spell uses a size of 10M, rather then RADIUS_SIZE_COLOSSAL which is 30ft. It also wants to target doors and placables, which do not even have skills/attacks - it could be removed so that the check on line 62 is not needed.
