Components V, S
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target 1 living creature

Saving Throw Will partial (see text at right); Spell Resistance yes
You fill a target with such profound remorse that it begins to harm itself. Each round, the target must save or deal 1d8 points of damage + its Strength modifier to itself using an item held in its hand or with unarmed attacks. If the creature saves, it is staggered for 1 round and takes a -2 penalty to Armor Class, after which the spell ends.
