This spell created a crack between the planes that looked like a dark blade. It was directed by the caster through concentration and could be wielded like a weapon to do great damage against creatures and even disintegrate them if a vital spot was hit. It also damaged man-made structures and could penetrate magical barriers like a prismatic wall or sphere, a wall of force, or an antimagic shell.
