This spell creates violent surges of negative energy in a 60 ft. emanation around the caster, bestowing 4d4 negative levels on any living creature in the area. The siphoned life force then culminates in the form of one greater shadow for every two levels so drained. When a creature that originally had 15 or more HD dies from this level drain, its corrupted animus solidifies into a dread wraith. The shadows are all advanced to 15 HD and all undead created by shadow asgard have +10 turn resistance. The undead created through this spell remain in existence until destroyed.
XP Cost: 5,000.
