This began as a text fix, but given that the spell was working improperly, the fix turned to one of addressing the spell itself.

    Color Spray (SPWI105.SPL) contains an undocumented -3 save penalty. The spell description should be updated to reflect this.
    StringRef: DIALOG.TLK #25018 (Build 0709)

    Corrections: "make a saving throw" -> "make a saving throw vs. spells (at a -3 penalty)"

    Current: ~Color Spray (Alteration)
    Level: 1
    Range: 30 feet
    Duration: Special
    Casting Time: 1
    Area of Effect: 60 degree arc
    Saving Throw: Special

    Upon casting this spell, the wizard causes a vivid, fan-shaped spray of clashing colors to spring forth from his hand. From one to six creatures (1d6) within the area are affected in order of increasing distance from the wizard. All creatures in the area of effect that are 4th or less must make a saving throw or be rendered unconscious for five rounds.

    Alternatively, the spell should be changed to remove the penalty (which is what the G3 Fixpack does, for example).

    Not surprisingly, I vote for P&P behavior. I'll post it here tomorrow, as I currently don't have the Player's Handbook handy.

    Or just check the WOTC documentation. Afterall they pay for the DnD badge.

    Color Spray does not have a save penalty in PnP. If you want to make the spell less useless, I would suggest PnP aspects that are currently missing from the spell (and there are several) be restored instead.
