To even begin casting this incantation, one needs (as a focus) something very personal to the subject, which must be an evil outsider. Technically the focus itself is the target of the incantation. During the long ritual caster chants in unison with some helpers (if available) and by divination magic inherent in the ritual receives knowledge about the subject’s life. The last three hours are spent by calling out in the devil’s own language the horrible deeds and sins it has commited. Right after the final sin, the subject will be brought (as per Teleport without Error, no save) to the focus in a place which must be free of all obstacles in 40 ft. radius. Right after this the devil is targeted with Energy Drain by an 18th level caster. The owner of the focus must be less than 44 miles away when the recounting of sins begins. If it is not, nothing happens to it when the invocation is finished. In case it is, it immediately becomes aware that after three hours it will be teleported regardless of its will to the place of the casting and something bad happens to it. It can prepare itself however it wishes, but after this point going farther away doesn’t help. In fact, nothing short of wish or stopping the caster(s) can stop the process.
Focus: Something which belonged to the devil.
Backlash: Unpreventable Taint equal to the negative levels target took. In the case where intended target isn’t near enough when the castigating begins, the invocation brings something comparable in power and evil (from as near as possible to the intended victim), but without the Energy Drain effect.
