Death Spell kills instantly all creatures with fewer than 9 Hit Dice and most summoned creatures.


When a Death Spell is cast, it snuffs out the life force of creatures within the area of effect, instantly and irrevocably. Creatures with more than 8 Hit Dice are immune to this spell with the exception of summoned creatures, which are automatically slain. Only enemies are affected by this spell.


Summoned demons, devas and planetars are gated/plane shifted and are thus immune to this spell.

It is particularly effective early in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, as it is party-friendly AoE spell that can outright kill enemies like trolls and Umber Hulks.
