Energy Drain and Negative Levels:
Each successful energy drain attack bestows on or more negative levels on the opponent. A creature takes the following penalties for each negative level it has gained.
-1 on all skill checks and ability checks.
-1 on all attack rolls and saving throws.
-5 hit points.
-1 effective level (whenever the creature’s level in a die roll or calculation, reduce it by one for each negative level).
If the victim casts spells, she loses access to one spell as if she had cast her
highest-level, currently available spell. (If she has more than one spell at her highest level, she chooses which she loses.) In addition, when she next prepares spells or regains spell slots, she gets one less spell slot at her highest spell level.
Negative levels remain for 24 hours or until removed with a spell, such as restoration. After 24 hours, the afflicted creature must attempt a Fortitude save (DC 10 +1/2 attacker’s HD + attacker’s Cha modifier).If the saving throw succeeds, the negative level goes away with no harm to the creature. The afflicted creature makes a seperate saving throw for each negative level it has gained. If the save fails, the negative levels go away, but the creature’s level is also reduced by one.
A character with negative levels at least equal to her current level, or drained below 1st level, is instantly slain. Depending on the creature that killed her, she may rise the next night as a monster of that kind. If not, she rises as a wight.
A creature gains 5 temporary hit points for each negative level it bestows (though not if the negative level is caused by a spell or similar effect).
