A cunning wizard or warlock can draw the very soul out of a creature using deadly magic. The life essence of anyone slain by this spell coalesces into a soul shard, a precious, ruby-colored gem used in creating soulstones and summoning demons. When cast upon a living target, drain soul causes 1d10 points of damage per round for a number of rounds equal to the caster’s level. If the spell slays the target, its vital essence begins to coalesce into a soulstone. The caster of the spell must then mold the essence into a soul shard before it flees for the afterlife, paying the experience cost for the spell only if the target is slain; the caster is then rewarded with a soul shard. Those slain by drain soul can still be returned to life by raise dead, resurrection or other means. This in no way affects the soul shard.
Arcane Focus: An amytheist crystal.
