Your sight transforms into a deadly petrifying gaze attack. All creatures in the area of effect who look upon you must make a fortitude save or be turned to stone (treat the target as if they had been subjected to a flesh to stone spell). Your eyes glow a faint red while you are under the effects of this spell. The effectiveness of your gaze attack is calculated at the beginning of each combat round. You may choose to target one specific creature as an attack option during your turn of the combat round. Thus it is possible that a given creature may need to make two saves in the same combat round, one at the beginning and one when you target that creature. See Gaze Attacks, page 77 in the Dungeon Master's Guide and Special Attacks, page 8 in the Monster Manual for more information.
    Material Component: A powdered gem, valued no less than $250 gold, upon which you have shed a drop of your blood. Apply the powder to your eyes as you cast the spell. The component is destroyed in the casting of the spell.
