Vampiric Touch, Lesser (3.5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
|Casting time:||1 standard action|
|Target:||Living creature touched|
|Duration:||Instantaneous/1 hour; see text|
You feel the life force drain from your target and flow into you.
You must succeed on a melee touch attack. Your touch deals 1d4 points of damage per two caster level (maximum 5d4). You gain temporary hit points equal to the damage you deal. However, you can’t gain more than the subject’s current hit points +2, which is not enough to disable the subject. The temporary hit points disappear 1 hour latter.
