Power Word, Nightmare

Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]

You utter a single word of power that instantly causes one creature of your choice to fall into a sleep and to be stricken by a series of nightmares. You control various parameters of the nightmare -- falling, death in the family, etc. The subject takes 1d4 damage per hour from the mental strain caused by the nightmares and physical strain caused by the body thrashing about. When the subject awakes, she loses 2d4 points of constitution until she can get a good night's sleep.

Any creature that currently has 101 or more hit points is unaffected by power word, nightmare if she is currently awake. However, if she is asleep when the spell is cast upon her, she is affected.
