Your shadow wriggles before spreading out from you, forming a gateway of clinging, consuming shadow through which the horrors of another plane can barely be seen. The first time each turn you Sustain the Spell, the radius increases by 5 feet.

Each enemy that enters the area or begins its turn in the area takes 2d6 negative damage and must attempt a Reflex save.

Failure As success, but the creature takes full damage and a -10-foot circumstance penalty.
