If successful, the target takes immediate health damage plus a critical type dependent on the caster's chosen deity. An additional round of health and critical damage over time (DoT) is inflicted every 2 seconds after the initial hit until a total of 5 rounds. Each round the target also receives a stacking debuff of -5 DS and -3 TD, stacking up to a maximum of -25 DS /-15 TD. The debuff persists for 15 seconds after the last round.
If a target is killed while under the effects of Condemn, the cleric builds up the ability to EVOKE an empowered version of the spell that causes all five rounds of damage to immediately trigger. To earn an empowerment charge, it takes 10 kills of targets under the effect (can be reduced with Spiritual Lore, Religion). A cleric may only store 1 charge of an empowered Condemn by default, but training in Spiritual Lore, Blessings increases the maximum stored charges by +1 per seed 10 summation. The number of stored charges may be viewed with the SPELL verb.

When casting this spell, the messaging will be different depending upon the caster's aligned deity.
Drifting cherry blossom petals shimmer into view all around a TARGET. A petal falls upon the TARGET and ignites, blooming into crimson fire and scorching it for X points of damage! The TARGET falls to the ground motionless. The pale petals near a TARGET drift to the ground and fade away.
Crisp lines of brilliant color circle a TARGET, forming five rings in constant motion. Red [or blue, green, black, or white] energy flares around the TARGET and sears it for X points of damage! The TARGET falls to the ground motionless. You sense Lumnis's condemnation of a TARGET wane.
Silence falls, muffling a TARGET in its velvet folds. The chill of eternity presses in, freezing the TARGET for X points of damage! The TARGET falls to the ground motionless. You sense Gosaena's condemnation of a TARGET wane.
A low, rumbling growl fills the air, freezing a TARGET in its tracks! A sleek black shape leaps past the TARGET and lashes out with sharp claws, slashing it for X points of damage! The TARGET falls to the ground motionless. You sense Andelas's condemnation of a TARGET wane.
Ineffable color blooms around TARGET, accompanied by a dissonant ripple of bells. Fleeting shapes beyond reason or description surge into being and batter the TARGET for X points of damage!
