If the target fails their Will save, the next time they deal damage – via physical or magical attack – of any type to any creature, they suffer an equal number of points of damage of the same type. If the target is aware that they are under the affects of retribution before they make an attack, the spell can be removed by dispel magic, limited wish, wish or miracle. Retribution is often cast as a punishment or to teach a lesson.
This spell functions as retribution, except that the target will suffer double the damage they dealt on their next attack (or, in the case of a spell, the maximum damage possible, whichever is lower).
