You call up a black veil of negative power that devours the living. You can draw on the life energies of all living creatures in your sight, devouring tiny bits of their spirit.

You gain 1 hp in the first round, 2 hp per creature in the second round, 3 hp per creature in the third, and so forth to a maximum of 10 hp per creature. The affected creatures lose these hp on your turn as negative energy damage; if they remove themselves from your line of sight, the damage ends, but it starts again as soon as they return to your sight.

The hp you gain are temporary hp, and you can gain a maximum of 10 hp/level. Any hp above that are lost.

Mythic: By expending one use of mythic energy, each creature in line of sight that round gains a negative level (Fort save negates). You gain 10 hp per creature affected in this way, and a +4 profane bonus to all attack and damage rolls and all DCs of spell you cast in this round.
