Here's another one of my Truth line of spells.

Light in the Dark
Level: Sor/Wiz 5, Clr 5, Druid 6
Components: V
Casting Time: 1 Standard Action
Range: Self, 40 ft. radius
Effect: See Text
Duration: 1 round / 2 levels
Saving Throw: No
Spell Resistance: No

You cry out a word of Truth and impair the magical abilities of those near you. All spell casters within 40 feet of you must make a caster level check (DC 11 plus your caster level) when casting a spell or the spell fails. They still expended the spell slot but nothing happens.

Seems kinda weak. 6th level spell that slightly impairs casters, although it wouldn't do much to one of an appropriate level for the party to fight? Also, that is a pretty low duration.

Against an equal level caster (within 40' of you) wouldn't this spell typically shut down 1/2 of the spells they cast?

DC is 11+ your caster level. If they are your level then they would need to roll an 11 or better to sucesfully cast the spell.

The duration I agree can probably go up and probably even bring the level down some. I'll make those changes.
