Whoops... will adjust.Creeeepy. But should that be "[b]counters and dispels good hope"? You've only got dispelling down, but I would think the countering would be more important... otherwise you have cheery, hope-filled people weeping blood.
Dunno, thats an awful long time to have those penalties and be taking damage.The time on it is a little short for that returning ability. I'd up it to 1 minute / level, or you'll be in combat with the caster of it for the duration of the spell.
