Counterspell: Ardulia's Fall
Description: The caster projects the screams of the dead onto the target, instantly killing them if they fail a will saving throw. On a successful saving throw, or if the target is immune to death or fear, the caster instead inflicts sonic damage to the tune of 1d4/level + 1/2 levels.
Immunity to death effects or immunity to fear both prevent the death effect.
This spell also damages golems and undead.
The spell script checks for empower and maximize metamagics, but because of its level, it cannot be cast as either.
