This spell creates a destructive area of shadowstuff and negative energy, sapping the strength of creatures within. The lighting within the entire area plummets to darkness, as a deeper darkness spell. A living creature within the shadow field takes 1d4 points of Strength damage each round on your turn while in the field. A creature reduced to 0 Strength by this effect is slain instantly. This is a negative energy effect. Creatures that are immune to negative energy or are healed by it do not lose Strength while in the shadow field, though it is still considered dark to them as deeper darkness.
