Healing Thief

School necromancy Level mesmerist 1, occultist 3, psychic 3, sorcerer/wizard 3, witch 3


Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (a bit of sponge, damp with tears)


Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 round/level or until discharged
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance yes


With this spell you can steal the healing of the target creature. You must succeed at a melee touch attack to strike the target. If you do, until the effect ends, whenever your target is subject to a healing spell or a supernatural effect that heals hit points, the target only receives half the healing (rounded down) and you receive the other half (also rounded down). You must remain within 25 feet (plus 5 feet per two caster levels) of the target to gain this benefit. If you move outside that range, the spell is discharged. Once you steal 5 hit points per your caster level (maximum 50 hit points) of healing from this spell’s effect, the spell is discharged.

Mythic Healing Thief

Instead of stealing half the target’s healing, you steal all of it. The amount of damage you steal before the spell is discharged increases to 10 points per caster level (maximum 100 points).

Augmented: If you expend two uses of mythic power, the range of the spell changes to close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels). If the target has fast healing or regeneration, you steal half of its fast healing or regeneration. Healing from these abilities count toward the maximum healing stolen before the spell is discharged.
