8th-level transmutation

Range: Self

Components: V, S, M (a left hand clutching an eye encased in a gem worth at least 250 gp)

Duration: concentration, up to 1 minute

Classes: pale master, warlock, wizard

For the duration, you drawn upon the malice of an infamous lich. Your eyes transform, taking on a golden hue with a slit pupil like that of a cat. It glows green in the darkness and grants you True Sight out to a range of 30 feet.

Additionally, your hand begins to wither, leaving a blackened, mummified appendage that can be used to inflict terrible pain. For the duration, as an action on your turn, you can make a melee spell attack against a target within 5 feet of you, dealing 6d6 cold damage and 6d6 necrotic damage on a hit. If you score a critical hit against a creature that has fewer than 100 hit points, it must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or be slain instantly as your hand draws the life force from its body. Your eye and hand return to normal when the spell ends.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell with a 9th-level spell slot, the duration is concentration, up to 1 hour. Casting this spell every day with a 9th level spell slot for a year makes its effects permanent and your alignment becomes Neutral Evil if it is not already.
