“Taste the rainbow!”

This spell causes seven shimmering, intertwined, multicolored beams of light to spray from your hand. Each beam has a different power. Creatures in the area of the spell with 8 HD or less are automatically blinded for 2d4 rounds. Every creature in the area is randomly struck by one or more beams, which have additional effects. See the Prismatic Spray table for descriptions of the individual beams.

In all cases, the saving throw DC is the one for this spell, rather than the spell referenced on the table. Immunities to and the spell descriptors of the referenced spells apply normally.

Augment: For every additional spell point you spend, the HD limit on the creatures blinded by the spell increases by 1.
