Description

You utter a dire curse over the body of a dying creature, allowing you to consume its waning life force.

Upon casting this spell, you touch a living creature that has –1 or fewer hit points. If the target fails its saving throw, it dies and you gain 1 hero point for every 5 Hit Dice possessed by the target (minimum 1, maximum 3). These hero points last for a number of minutes equal to the target’s Hit Dice. Any hero points remaining when this spell ends are lost.

This spell requires onyx dust worth 500 gp.

This spell can be made permanent.
