Blight of Flesh

“The One Power comes from the True Source, the driving force of creation, the force the Creator made to turn the Wheel of Time. Saidin, the male half of the True Source, and saidar, the female half, work against each other, and at the same time together to provide that force. Saidin is fouled by the touch of the Dark One, like water with a thin slick of rancid oil floating on top. The water is still pure, but it cannot be touched without touching the foulness. Only saidar is still safe to be used…
The True Source cannot be used up, any more than the river can be used up by the wheel of the mill. The Source is the river; the Aes Sedai, the waterwheel.”

Wheel of time

Blight of Flesh
Air, Fire, Spirit, Water (Lost)
Level: 4
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Weave Resistance: Yes

This particularly nasty weave induces a chemical reaction to occur within the body of a victim, causing the subject’s own body to slowly consume and destroy itself.
The casting of this weave requires the channeler to touch the bare skin of his victim. No immediate effect is noticed, but the victim must make a Fortitude saving throw or begin to suffer numbness and fatigue within the next 1d6 hours. This effect causes a -2 circumstance penalty to all attacks and Dexterity based skill checks. The victim must make a Fortitude check thereafter every day or suffer 1d4 hit points of damage as his body is ravaged by its own immunity system. During this time, no wounds can be healed naturally and no subdual damage may be recovered through rest.
The effects of this weave will continue until the victim dies or until a Healing weave is administered, or the subject successfully makes 4 consecutive Fortitude saves.
