Censure is a warding spell that will cause a character or creature to become either stunned or immobilized, depending upon the magnitude of the endroll. For endrolls < 150, the effect will stun the creature/player, while those > 150 will cause an immobilization effect.

Censure will attempt to affect up to 4 targets, increased by training in Spiritual Lore, Religion. When open cast, the spell will not affect other players in the same group as the caster or CONVERTed to the same deity. Targeting the spell will still affect multiple targets, but will remove the immunity the target may have for being a convert of the same deity.

Duration of the spell is based on endroll, with a minimum of 8 sec. and a maximum of 25 sec. Note that the duration "starts over" when the stunned/immobilized threshold is reached, potentially allowing a longer effect with a lower endroll.
