Sever, level 7 cleric spell, ongoing:
“Choose an appendage on the target such as an arm, tentacle, or wing. The appendage is magically severed from their body, causing no damage but considerable pain. Missing an appendage may, for example, keep a winged creature from flying, or a bull from goring you on its horns. While this spell is ongoing you take -1 to cast a spell.”
Why is it ongoing? If you stop the spell does the limb re-attach? regrow? Does the limb remain active while severed? Can you sever your own hand and send it out Adam’s Family style?
How do you interpret this spell?
