Breath of Death

5th-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: Self (30-foot cone)

Components: V, S

Duration: Instantaneous

You exhale a cloud of fungal spores. Each creature in a 30-foot cone that is not a construct must make a Constitution saving throw. After 1d6 hours, those who fail their saving throw begin to feel an itching, burning sensation in their flesh, losing 1 point of Strength and Constitution per following hour.

Purplish-black fungus sprouts and oozes from the victim’s eyes, mouth, and nose, and their skin takes on a sickly pallor. The host emits a foul odor, attracting predators that can smell them. Such beasts attack the infected with an odd ferocity, gaining a +1 bonus to their attack rolls. Anyone who touches the host must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or become infected as well.

Before a host loses over half of their Constitution score, the effect of the spell can be removed with lesser restoration.

After, however, it requires either greater restoration or heal to stop its progression. Once cured, a creature naturally regains lost Strength and Constitution at the rate of 1 per day each.
