Spell descriptionThe hapless victim of a REEK spell finds himself exuding a carrion stenchakin to that of zombies, noticeable for up to 30 feet depending on conditions.Although disgusting, the wretched odor has no measurable adverse affectson those nearby (though your DM may rule that those with exceptionally lowConstitution scores must make checks to avoid becoming nauseous or sick).
The smell can not be washed away, and even stromg perfumes can not completelymask it. The REEK will draw any insects or creatures usually attracted bycarrion, and will be left behind for those that track by smell... Note thatthe smell itself is not magical.
Although normal means will not dissipate the odor before the spell elapses,a REMOVE CURSE or DISPEL MAGIC may do so. The caster may also end the spellat any time. Once the REEK has ended, the lingering effects will remainin clothing and equipment until they are cleaned.
The subject of REEK receives a saving throw vs. spell to avoid the effect.The material component is a bit of carrion.
