With a cruel utterance, you complete the spell and unleash its terrible energy. A sickeningly wet ripping sound accompanies the sight of strips of flesh being torn away, as if some invisible hand was attempting to peel your target like an onion.

When you cast this spell, you literally strip the flesh from a corporeal creature’s body, inflicting incredible pain and psychological trauma. Each round, the subject takes 2d6 points of damage, 1d6 points of Charisma damage, and 1d6 points of Constitution damage. A successful Fortitude save negates the ability damage and reduces the hit point damage by half for that round, but does not end the spell. Flensing has no effect on creatures in gaseous form.

Material Component: An onion.
