Syntax: Cast 'Desecration'

This spell corrupts and defiles the immediate vicinity of the caster, bringing
it closer to the Void. While the room is desecrated, the word of recall spell
in all its forms will be ineffective, and it is impossible to spiritrecall
from such a place. Spells without any Void component to them will have a
chance of failing if attemtped in this place; water spells are particularly
likely to fail here. On the other hand, spells that in any way gain power from
Void magics will have a bonus to their caster level. The sanctuary spell has
no effect in a defiled room.

A room must have solid ground underneath in order to be desecrated, and it
cannot already be sanctified. Anyone passing through a desecrated room will be
able to identify that something is unusual about this place; Void scholars
will recognize the effects of the spell immediately.

The sanctify spell counters and dispels a desecration. This spell cannot be
used by anyone with any measure of gold aura.
