Vampiric Maiden

Vampiric Maiden Spell4

Necromancy Negative

Traditions arcane, divine, occult

Cast [two-actions] somatic, verbal

Range 30 feet; Targets 1 creature

Saving Throw Fortitude

A ghostly iron maiden snaps shut on the target and drains its vitality for your gain. This deals 4d4 piercing damage and 4d4 negative damage, and the target must attempt a Fortitude save. You gain temporary HP equal to the negative damage the target takes (after applying resistances, weaknesses, and the like). You lose any remaining temporary HP after 1 minute.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target takes half damage.

Failure The target is briefly trapped within the vampiric maiden. The target takes full damage and is immobilized by the iron maiden for 1 round or until it uses an Interact action to extricate itself, whichever comes first.

Critical Failure The target takes double damage and is immobilized by the vampiric maiden for 1 round or until it Escapes (the DC is your spell DC), whichever comes first.

Heightened (+1) The piercing and negative damage increase by 1d4 each.
