Upon completion of this spell, the caster throws a glowing white globe of energy at his foes that upon contact with a solid object, or maximum range, explodes into billowing hot wind and dust. The white burst of light and dust bring unnatural magical change to those caught in the area of effect.
Those caught in the blast age 1d4 years per caster level (max 20d4 years), suffering all the natural physical effects of aging (lose of STR, DEX, and CON), but gaining none of the benefits of the experiences gained in the aging process (no increase to WIS, dragons do not increase age category, etc).
Creatures that age beyond their natural lifespan immediately die of old age, and turn to dust.
Constructs, undead, oozes, elementals, and other immortal creatures suffer no ill effects from this spell.
The material component for this spell is a hollow glass orb worth 5gp or more. It is smashed during the casting of the spell (and thus, consumed).
