DESCRIPTION

The caster emulates the aging touch of a toshigami. For the duration of this spell, when the caster hits a target with a touch attack or any melee weapon, the target must make a Fortitude save to avoid being magically aged. When the caster strikes a foe, it must decide whether it wishes to physically increase the target’s age or mentally reduce the target’s age. If it increases the target’s physical age, the target takes 1 point of Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution drain. If it decreases the target’s mental age, the target takes 1 point of Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma drain. Once a target succeeds at its saving throw against the touch of ages, it can no longer be affected by this ability for 1 round. This is a magical aging effect, but does not actually alter the victim’s true age—it merely simulates the creeping effect of age on the flesh or the reversion to an increasingly infantile state of mind.
