You point your finger and fire a black ray of negative energy that suppresses the life force of any living creature it strikes. You must make a caster check to hit. If you hit, the subject gains 1d4 temporary negative levels. Negative levels stack.

Assuming the subject survives, it regains lost levels after a number of hours equal to your caster level (maximum 15 hours). An undead creature struck by the ray heals 1d4 × 5 hit points.
