|Casting Time:||1 action|
|Components:||V, S, M (a mother cyst)|
Choose a creature currently bearing a necrotic cyst, that creature makes a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save the target takes 6d10 necrotic damage and its hit point maximum is reduced for 1 hour by an amount equal to the necrotic damage it took. On a successful save, it takes half as much damage and its hit point maximum is unchanged. If a creature is killed by this damage, the cyst has expanded beyond the confines of its host. On the round following the creature’s death, the cyst exits the ﬂesh of the slain creature as a free-willed skulking cyst.
At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d10 for each slot level above 5th.
