The following skills are used in the stages of this spell:


Casting messages


You check the best-before date and tap the top of the jar of mandrake roots, sensing their potential.
You squish the candle into two lumps and stick a lump in each ear.
You gingerly open the jar and mutter a quick oath of binding on the roots.
Swirling one finger in the air above the jar, you form a small cyclone.
The conical cyclone begins to amplify the screaming of the mandrake roots.


The cyclone swirls around you.


The horrendous screaming noise suddenly changes as the mandrake roots begin to sing in close harmony. This even penetrates your beeswax earplugs!  You smash the jar in disgust.

(Jar is lost)

There is another failure message where your clothes are all removed instead of losing the jar. Details needed.

Wizard swirls his finger in the air above the jar.
It seems to be getting windier.
A screaming sound appears on the edge of hearing and begins to increase in volume.

The cyclone dissipates into the atmosphere and the sound fades away.

It's possible that Wee Flaudia's Fluffy Ear Muffs provides some protection against this spell.
