Beneath the Borderlands
Range: 30 ft
Duration: Following melee round
The prayer spell seeks short-term favor from the gods to help some other spell or attack to succeed. Prayer affects a 20×20 ft area, causing a saving throw penalty to all creatures in that area. The penalty is a -1, plus an additional -1 for every ten caster levels. Thus, a 10th level Cleric causes a saving throw penalty of -2. The penalty actually takes effect in the melee round following the one in which it was cast.
