Spell Resistance: Yes
   This spell allows wizards in the midst of research to work on through the night while their apprentices or manservants sleep on the wizard's behalf. Steal sleep allows the caster to project his mental fatigue to another nearby creature. Doing so allows the caster to become wide awake, as if she had a good night's sleep, while the subject of the incantation becomes as drowsy as the wizard had been.
   The target of this spell receives whatever need for sleep the caster had at the time of casting. This effect may make the target naturaly drowsy or even fatigued. Fatigued creatures suffer a -2 penalty to Strength and Dexterety, as well as making them unable to run or charge. If this spell is successful, the caster is treated as having gotten eight hours of sleep, although this effect does not substitute for the rest time needed for spell recovery.
   The spell is innefective if cast upon targets such as elves or undead who do not sleep normally.
   Extended use of this spell causes a temporary loss of two Constitution points per casting after the first. Lost points can be regained at a rate of one point per night of normal rest.
