Soul Gathering
7th-level Necromancy
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (An eyeball from a humanoid, a drop of blood, a piece of obsidian worth at least 100 gp)
Duration: Concentration, up to a minute


All creatures within a 25 foot radius of the caster must make a Constitution saving throw, losing half of its maximum hit points on a failed save, and transferring ownership of an affected creature's soul to the caster. On a success, affected creatures keep their soul, and the caster takes 1d4 necrotic damage per successful saving throw. For each soul you gather, you must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failed saving throw, you take 2d8 necrotic damage. The soulless body becomes a undead with undead traits they are not under your control, unless you cast another spell to control them.

If a creature enters within a 25 foot radius around you while you are concentrating on it, they take 2d6 necrotic damage for each turn they spend in the radius. If there a undead or soulless this spell doesn't affect them, but they take 1d4 necrotic damage instead of 2d6 if they enter the radius. If this damage would kill a creature, their soul is transferred into your possession. Once this spell ends, you are stunned for a number of rounds equal to how many rounds you have concentrated on the spell + 1. This spell consumes the blood and the eyeball.
