Death Vortex is a very strong attack spell. This spells creates a swirling, black vortex of death. It literally drains away a creature's life energy. First the vortex will move to the point designated by the mage; if an enemy was targeted, the vortex will follow them until it is killed. Then it will move on to new targets.

However, the vortex is totally harmless to the caster and their party. Thus, casting it on oneself will create a zone of death around the caster without any side-effects.

Energy Mist is a lesser version of this spell.

Lore[edit]

Casting Death Vortex
This spell creates a swirling black vortex at the point the mage designates, which will thereafter move at random. Everyone within this vortex will be continuously struck by lightning.
Lord British's advisor, Nystul, has chosen to concentrate on his ability to aid in the defense of our noble monarch. He once described to me what he considers to be the greatest application for the Eighth Circle spell, Death Vortex. Cast the spell on oneself, not on an opponent. Though he never revealed how, he did explain that this would greatly increase the spell's duration, and would have no ill effects upon the caster or his comrades.
This spell calls forth a swirling mist of black death that will follow its target until that target falls to the ground dead or the spell duration passes.
