This spell generates a bank of fog, similar to a fog cloud except that its mists are a strange purplish black. Creatures subjected to their touch absorb a mind-affecting poison into their bodies which dulls the senses and thoughts, suffering 1d6 points of ability damage to intelligence and charisma, plus an additional 1 point per two caster levels. Creatures with 2 or fewer HD receive no save, creatures with 3 to 7 HD who save suffer one-half damage, and creatures of 8 HD or greater who save are unaffected by the cloud. Creatures affected that remain in the cloud continue to suffer from its cumulative effects each round. Holding one's breath does not protect against the cloud.
    Unlike a fog cloud, the dim cloud moves away from you at 10 feet per round, rolling along the surface of the ground. (Figure out the cloud's new spread each round based on its new point of origin, 10 feet farther away from the point of origin where you cast the spell.) Because the vapors are heavier than air, they sink to the lowest level of the land, even pouring down den or sinkhole openings. It cannot penetrate liquids, nor can it be cast underwater.
