The target of this spell is enveloped in darkness, burning for 1d6 points of shadow damage per caster level per round (maximum 10d6) and inflicts the Dimmed status effect. A successful Fortitude save reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. If the target fails the initial saving throw, it gets another chance to save every round to end the effect until the duration is ended.
