You cause a household of non-believers to suffer for defying your deity. Your diety must be the dominating power in the surrounding area of the household which you with to afflict with ruin. The consequences of this spell are lasting, terrible, and not to be bestowed lightly. Thus, misuse of this spell results in the loss of your ability to cast spells 4th level or greater until you have undertaken an atonement spell. Stand before the household's gates or threshold and loudly denounce its occupants in public view. This done, the effects of the curse are bestowed upon the household and all who dwell within.
The head of the household must make a Fortitude save or suffer the effects of a contagion. All members of the household are unable to benefit from curative spells, healing magicks, or spells such as remove curse and remove disease. All household members heal damage at one-half the normal rate as their wounds fester and resist healing. Further, once per week a single warp wood spell strikes a portion of the household or some susceptible wooden item within. Grounds owned by the household become barren, refusing to grow plant life or food, and livestock of the household suffer the effects of being exhausted. Lastly, members of the household suffer a -1 morale penalty to all saves and checks, and a -4 penalty to their charisma when dealing with non-household members.
The effects of the curse can be ended by a miracle or wish. Effects of this spell also end for members of the household who become devoted followers of your diety.
