This spell is the reverse of Cure Serious Wounds. Instead of healing the creature touched, it causes damage. On a successful touch from the priest, the spell inflicts 3d8 + 3/level points of damage upon the target (up to a maximum of 3d8+30). The spell expires once the priest makes a successful melee attack or after 1 turn has passed. The priest gains a +4 bonus to hit the target. Magic resistance does not affect this spell.

This spell does not have a direct equivalent in vanilla.
