When a person barters their soul with an evil outsider in exchange for favors or powers, their spirit is damned, indebting it to an evil deity or supernatural force. While the powers of damnation can be great, the price can be greater: damned spirits are more difficult to resurrect into their bodies upon death, if they can be revived at all.1

An infernal contract signed to gain some mortal reward in exchange for one's soul is a sure way to damnation.2

Damned spirits can shed their powers and atone their evil pacts through an act of redemption to reverse this effect, though such a decision is unlikely to nullify any contracts they made in exchange for their spirits.1
