Mid-life Crisis
Enchantment (Compulsion, Mind-Affecting)
Level: Brd 6, Sor/Wiz 8
Components: V, F, XP
Casting Time: 1 full round
Range: Close (25ft+5ft/2 levels)
Target: One creature
Duration: Permanent
Saving Throw: Will negates [see text]
Spell Resistance: Yes

You begin a small speech that wears away at the targetís self-worth, rendering him immobile.

By proving that the targetís life is worthless, you assault his self-worth. Causing despair and beliefs of worthlessness. The target takes a Ė3 morale penalty to saving throws, skill checks, and AC. The targetís effective charisma score is 4 points lower for the duration of the spell. The target may attempt a Will save (based on the targetís Charisma) to negate this.

Focus: An object that the target values.(i.e. an enchanted sword, a commanders uniform, a wizards spell book ect.)
XP cost: 750 points

Hello I have tried to create a spell for my first time and I understand that its incomplete. I dont think anyone thought of it already, and I'm still new at this so please help me finish and balance this spell.
Thank you.

Yaknow, when reading this spell I first thought of this comic-


So I guess there's another spell that has a similiar effect, but I don't know.

Ok, do you own On the Origin of PCs? Because Belkar DEFINITELY casts exactly this on a monk Roy is about to hire. The monk runs off sobbing about his life. It's pretty funny how he does it actually.
