Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence (abbreviated as TEA) is a miscellaneous wizard spell which turns an item into a gp light source much like a yellow stone ring.


The spell "Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence" is a miscellaneous spell requiring a lantern (sometimes consumed), a shimmering glass nugget, and the focus of an octogram. The target item, once worn, will produce light of the same colour as the glass nugget (at the time of casting). The light will only continue so long as the wearer has sufficient Guild Points. Once GP is run down and the light goes out, the enchanted item must be removed and equipped again before the light will return.

Unlike most other wearable light producing items, these will add a line of text to the wearer's description:

She is surrounded by a soft <colour> glow.

Skeetbraskin's Fuliginous Perdition removes the effect from the item.


This spell costs 150 GP to cast, and takes up 10 units of mind space. It is cast on a wearable item.


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