Sevelkhar (Greyhawk Action)
Sevelkhar the Waster, Master of Famine and Drought, the Poisoner of Wells. Among the Baklunish Sevelkhar is the dark wind of the desert, the drought, the scourging sand—he is only worshiped to placate him. He has shrines at the sites of disasters and in the deep desert.
In the Bakluni culture, Sevelkhar is the eternal opponent of Geshtai, and both are viewed as subservient to Istus, Our Lady of Fate.

- Summon Dust (Su) Once per day, you can summon a greater earth elemental, as summon nature's ally VII. This elemental is composed of dry sand and cannot move through stone, but any soil it moves through instantly becomes parched.
- Dehydrating Strike (Su) Once per day as a swift action, at any point when you successfully inflict damage on a target, you can cause that target to become instantly and painfully dehydrated if it fails a Fortitude save (DC = 10 + 1/2 your HD + your Constitution modifier). If the save is successful, the victim is staggered for 1 round. If the save fails, the victim takes 1d10 points of Strength drain, is stunned for 1 round, and is then staggered for 1d4 rounds after recovering from being stunned.
