Spirit Song

Spirit Song Spell 8

Force Necromancy

Traditions occult

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Area 60-foot cone

Saving Throw basic Fortitude


Your eldritch song sends pulsing waves of ethereal energy to attack creatures’ spirits in the area, dealing 18d6 force damage. Because spirit song affects creatures’ spirits, it can damage a target projecting its consciousness (such as via project image) or possessing another creature even if the target’s body is elsewhere. The vibrating waves of spiritual song penetrate into, but not through, solid barriers, damaging incorporeal creatures hiding in solid objects in the area but not passing onward to damage creatures in other rooms.

Possessed creatures aren’t harmed by the song. The song doesn’t harm creatures that have no spirit, such as constructs.


Heightened (+1) The damage increases by 2d6.
