Prerequisites: Death domain.
Benefit: As a free action, the deity can generate a cloud of darkness that rises from its body in a spread with a radius of 10 feet per divine rank and 10 feet high. The cloud blocks sight as a deeper darkness spell does, except that it cannot be countered by light effects (other than those cast by deities of higher rank). Living creatures must make Will saves (DC 10 + the deity’s Charisma modifier + the deity’s divine rank) or die. Even with a successful save, living creatures still gain two negative levels (the save DC to remove the negative levels is the same as the first Will save). A single creature can be drained by the cloud only once per day, but the cloud’s darkness remains effective.
Suggested Portfolio Elements: Death, undead.
