A quicker path to curing disease, this spell is prized by some but decried by many for the evil it unleashes when cast. When you touch the target, all their diseases are cured, as if by Remove Disease. However, it has a dark side effect - the expelled plague spirits take form as malevolent venemous creatures. A number of poisonous giant Vermin (Giant Wasps, Monstrous Centipedes, Monstrous Scorpions, or Monstrous Spiders, chosen randomly) equal to 1d4 per disease cured is created and scatters away. The vermin are incorporeal at first, and scatter away with a fly speed of 90', but after 1 minute become corporeal. Once corporeal, they are normal creatures of their type, except that they have the Fiendish template. The spell also creates a multitude of normal insects that likewise scatter.
