A single bass note of incredible power suffuses the area.

Any creature not of your selected alignment within the spell’s area suffers the ill effects described on the Word of God table. This includes you, if you are not of the selected alignment.

The number of HD indicated on the table refers to the maximum number of HD a creature may have in order to be subjected to the corresponding effect. The effects are cumulative and concurrent. For example, an evil creature with 10 HD caught in a good-aligned Word of God is nauseated and deafened.

Augment: For every additional spell point you spend, the number of HD indicated in each row of the first column of the Word of God table increases by 1.
