This unholy spell sucks the life force from its victim. Upon completion, a sickly red aura surrounds the caster and the target. Onlookers can see the energy ripe away from the target then swirl over and into the caster. On a failed Fortitude save the target takes 1d6/level points of negative damage. The caster is then healed by that amount; any left over health points are converted into temporary hit points for the caster that last for 1 hour. Creatures also suffer 1d8 points of temporary damage to their Strength and Dexterity scores, Fortitude for half. This spell has no affect on creatures that are healed by neagtive energy like undead. After a creature takes damage from this spell they must make a Will save or be dazed for 1 round due to the shock that the drain has caused. Material Component: fresh blood from the caster.
