Distraction (Ex)

Any living creature vulnerable to the hydra spawn’s damage that begins its turn with a creature swarm in its square is nauseated for 1 round. A Fortitude saving throw (DC 14) negates the effect. Even with a successful save, spellcasting or concentrating on spells within the area of hydra spawn requires a Concentration check (DC 20 + spell level). Using skills requiring patience and concentration requires a Will save (DC 20).
