Forces a creature's life force and its material body into a gem on a failed Will save. Although this essentially 'kills' the target, it is not a Death effect and functions on creatures such as Undead but not most Constructs. This spell requires a Khyber Dragonshard as a special material component. It is often helpful to cast Enervation on a target before casting Trap the Soul to reduce the creature's saving throw.
