With a touch, you reduce the target's mental faculties. Your successful melee touch attack applies a 1d6 penalty to the target's Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. This penalty can't reduce any of these scores below 1.

This spell's effect may make it impossible for the target to cast some or all of its spells, if the requisite ability score drops below the minimum required to cast spells of that level.


  • This spell doesn't stack with itself.
  • Critical hits do not double the attribute damage.
  • Although this spell is listed as mind-affecting, it actually works against targets that are immune to mind-affecting spells (but not to attribute damage). So the spell will work on spiders, but not on undead.
