The target creature hears every sound echoed and reverberated in their mind, deafening them and incapacitating them.

|Target: 1 creature|
Every sound that the target hears for the duration echoes loudly in their mind, making it difficult to pick out individual sounds or words.
The constant distraction imposes a 2-point penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, and armor class (or a 1-point penalty if the target makes a save vs. spell). A silence or deafness spell ends the effect (but also causes the target to be unable to hear).
Various targets may react to this spell differently. A creature with especially keen hearing may be debilitated by the spell, cowering with their hands over their ears, or retreating to a quiet place.
