Cure Serious Wounds (spell)
Cure Serious Wounds is a spell that is more potent than "cure light wounds," enabling the caster to restore 20 to 48 lost hit points of healing to the recipient (4d8+16), if he or she has suffered damage.
|Area of Effect
|16 +4d8 hit points
|cleric (4th); druid (4th)
The healing power created can be distributed to more than one recipient.
The spell has no effect upon creatures without corporeal bodies or that aren't "alive," such as undead. Creatures that can only be struck by magic are affected, but not if it requires a +2 or greater weapon to hit.
The reverse of the spell, cause serious wounds, requires a successful touch against an unwilling victim. To succeed in touching an opponent, the caster must roll to hit, ignoring the enemy's armour and successfully achieving armour class 10 on the die — whereupon the amount described above is applied as damage. The spell cannot be "shared out" in this fashion against multiple opponents.
Using the spell in this fashion provides no protection against any powers the target has to influence enemies through physical contact.
