As you read the alien, mind-twisting words they vanish from the page. You feel a curious pressure inside your gut, and suddenly you burp. Not a soft, ladylike little burp -- a real wall-shaker.
The dragon wakes up. He gives you a funny look, and suddenly burps too.
Unfortunately dragons burp flame. He'd ask your pardon for his rudeness, but you're in no condition to answer...besides, it was your spell. RIP.
