“The evil eye is not a myth, as you will now learn to understand!”

Each round, you may target a single living creature, striking it with waves of evil power. Depending on the target’s HD, this attack has as many as three effects. See the Eyebite table for information on which effects apply. The effects are concurrent.

Table: Eyebite
HD Effect
10 or more Sickened
9 or less Panicked, sickened
4 or less Comatose, panicked, sickened

The effects are:

Sickened: Sudden pain and fever sweeps over the subject’s body, rendering it sickened. A creature affected by this spell remains sickened for 10 minutes per caster level. The effects cannot be negated by a Remove Disease or Heal spell.

Panicked: The subject becomes panicked for 1d4 rounds. Even after the panic ends, the creature remains shaken for 10 minutes per caster level, and it automatically becomes panicked again if it comes within sight of you during that time. This is a fear effect (it is possible to be immune to this part of the spell, while still being subject to the others normally).

Comatose: The subject falls into a catatonic coma for 10 minutes per caster level. During this time, it cannot be awakened by any means short of removing the curse. This is not a sleep effect, and thus elves are not immune to it.

The spell lasts for 1 round per three caster levels. You must spend a move action each round after the first to target a foe.

This spell can not be dispelled, but see Removing a Curse.

Augment: You affect creatures more powerfully by spending additional spell points. For each additional spell point you spend, a creature of 1 HD more is affected by the Panicked and Comatose effects of the spell. For example, if you spend one additional spell point, a creature of 10 HD or less is Panicked and Sickened, and a creature of 5 HD or less is Comatose, Panicked, and Sickened.
