Saving Throw: Will partial
Spell Resistance: Yes

You emit a terrifying scream that causes creatures that hear it (except yourself) to become panicked for 1 round per level of the caster unless it succeeds on a Will save. If cornered, a panicked creature begins cowering. If the Will save succeeds, the creature is shaken for 1d4 rounds. Creatures closest to the point of original are affected first.

Intelligent undead are filled with enthusiasm, gaining a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls for 1 round per level of the caster. This spell does not allow for cumulative fear effects with multiple castings.

Material Component: a cat’s head.
