The symbol persists while you are conscious or until the end of the battle, and affects enemies newly entering the area.

Epic feat: The symbol affects far away enemies.

9th level spells

Gate to the Underworld

The spell enables you and a group of nearby allies to travel to any location in the underworld, the world of spirits and the dead. Some knowledge of the underworld is required to know where you are going, which can be gained from past travels, scrying rituals, or the guidance of the soul of a deceased. Travel takes between an hour and a day, depending on distance and the amount of effort the exerted.

After you entered the underworld, the gate remains and can be unlocked with the right pass phrase. You do have to return to the same location within the underworld to return. You can also recast this spell to open a gate from the other side.

Winter Solstice
