Choose a creature within range and you flood its mind with grim reminders of its own impending mortality.

While you maintain concentration on this effect the creature takes this damage again at the start of each of your turns and the creature has the lesser insanity, thanatophobia. If you maintain concentration on this effect for the full minute the creature gains the lesser insanity, thanatophobia permanently.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 3rd level or higher, the spell deals additional 1d8 damage for each slot level above 2nd.
