This spell caused open wounds to bleed profusely and/or reopened wounds that had been recently bandaged. Only wounds caused by an edged weapon were affected. The loss of blood was damaging to the target and, unless the victim resisted the spell, blood loss continued until the wounds were treated (or treated again). Creatures without blood or with regeneration abilities were unaffected by the spell.
