Your touch progressively transmutes the substance of creatures you touch into stone. Once per round, you may deliver an attack with a caster check that inflicts 1d4 points of Dexterity damage and slows the target (as the spell) for 1 round. A successful Fortitude save negates the slow effect but not the ability damage. A target reduced to 0 Dexterity is petrified permanently.
