Upon completing this spell, you feel a nagging compulsion to divert your attention from your enemies. Shaking off the feeling, you note with satisfaction that your targeted enemies seem even more distracted than you.
This spell distracts its targets, preventing them from reacting with the deftness they might otherwise possess. Only effective when cast in the surprise round of combat and against flat-footed creatures not participating in the surprise round, this spell causes those it affects to take a –10 penalty on their next initiative check.
Targets that do not lose their Dexterity while flat-footed (such as a rogue with uncanny dodge) cannot be affected by this spell.
