Glimpse of Eternity

(Faiths of Eberron, p. 151)

Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]
Level: Bard 5, Sorcerer 5, Wizard 5, Revered Ancestor 5,
Components: V, S, M,
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One creature
Duration: 1 round/3 levels
Saving Throw: Will partial; see text
Spell Resistance: Yes

Your target's eyes gleam with a sudden wave of insight . . . but then his face twists into a rictus of agony and confusion.

You call upon the ancestral memory and experience of the long-lived elves, visiting all the burden of that knowledge on a single creature. The target of the spell takes 1d6 points of nonlethal damage per caster level (maximum 15d6) and is confused for the duration of the spell unless it makes a successful Will save. A successful save results in half damage and negates the confusion.

Elves and similarly long-lived creatures are affected normally by this spell. No creature can experience millennia of knowledge in such a short time without feeling its weight.

Material Component: A pinch of dust from an hourglass.
