Life Drain is a type of Magical Damage that cannot be used by players, only creatures. It is displayed in the game console as Red Text, and it is similar to other magical damage in that it cannot be blocked, and is not reduced by your armor even though it looks the same as if you were taking Physical Damage due to the color text displayed. It is the same as Mana Drain, except it takes your hitpoints instead of mana.
