Chilling Words

Chilling Words

3rd-level enchantment

Casting Time: 1 action
Range: 30 feet
Components: V, S, M (a frozen strip of paper with any writing on it)
Duration: Concentration, up to 8 hours

You choose a phrase that freezes the blood of a target creature. The target must make a successful Wisdom saving throw when chilling words is cast. On a successful saving throw, the spell has no effect. On a failed saving throw, the target is susceptible to the phrase for the duration of the spell.

When a susceptible target hears the phrase, it must make a successful Constitution saving throw or take 1d6 cold damage and become restrained for 1 round. Whether the Constitution saving throw succeeds or fails, the target can’t be affected by the phrase for 1 minute afterward. Once a creature utters the phrase to the target, that creature can’t affect the target with the phrase for the spell’s duration.

You also have the option to make a final utterance of the phrase (even if you’ve used the phrase on this target previously). On hearing the final utterance, the target takes 4d6 cold damage and is restrained for 1 minute; or, with a successful Constitution saving throw, it takes half damage and is restrained for 1 round. After this final utterance, the spell ends.
