Using a minor but ancient evil ritual, you stab yourself in the chest and spread the pain over a wide area, bringing death to sleeping creatures as far as a mile away. The bone dagger used in the casting of this spell always strikes you as a critical hit, even if you would normally be immune to critical hits, and deals an additional 2 points of Constitution damage while leaving you stunned for 5 rounds.

Sleeping creatures with fewer than 6 HD within a one-mile radius must succeed at a Fortitude save with a DC equal to 10 + damage dealt or die. Those that succeed, and sleeping creatures with more than 6 HD, awaken suddenly as if from a nightmare that included the figure of death attempting to slay them.
