This spell brings into being one or more shimmering, sword-like planes of force. These swords appear above the heads (or upper surface, if they lack heads) of victims chosen as above. At the culmination of the spell, the swords plunge downward!
Each victim can be the target of only one Sword. When the spell is cast, each victim takes (Circle 5 damage): 1d6+1 points of damage per character level (max 15d6+15 at character level 15) of spindling (physical, rare) damage and suffers the Ruptured condition for a number of points equal to the Spell Level. If they make a saving throw as defined above, they suffer half damage and the Rupture is lowered to a Bleed.
