Syntax: Cast 'Curse' <target>

There are two functions for curses: An object that is cursed is stripped
of any blessings, and is considered evil if it was not already blessed.
Wearing this item will slightly hinder the bearer's saves-- this effect lasts
for six hours, but the item will be permanently considered evil. Contrary to
popular mythology, a cursed weapon is no more useful against particularly holy
targets than any other.

When cast on a living being, a curse will penalize its target's hitroll and
saves. A character affected by a curse cannot be transported by any form of
the word of recall spell, nor will they be moved by a spiritrecall.

This spell cannot be used by a caster who has any measure of gold aura.

Primary Attribute: Intelligence, Charisma
