Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence
|Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence|
|Components||lantern (sometimes consumed), shimmering glass nugget, octogram|
|Tome||Intermediate Artifact Magic, fourth ed.|
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:
You light the lantern and turn the tattered white dress meditatively in your fingers, noting how it reflects the light. You turn the lantern carefully and place it into the heart of your shimmering glass nugget. You reach into the heart of your shimmering glass nugget and draw out the essence of lantern light, letting it play around your fingers. You wrap the tattered white dress carefully in the essence of lantern light, braiding the colourful strands in a complex weave.
The tattered white dress flashes through all of the rainbow's colours before settling into a deep blue glow, which sinks into its surface without a trace.
- To others
Wizard peers at a tattered white dress by the light of a lantern. Wizard does something complicated with her lantern. Wizard pulls something colourful from a shimmering glass nugget. Wizard seems to have something tangled around her fingers. Something in Wizard's hands flashes through every colour of the rainbow before settling to a deep blue, which soon fades.
While the glass nugget is in your inventory, it will phase through many colours, only pausing once it is safely tucked away. The number of colours a single nugget will visit may depend on the nugget. It is also possible to encourage a nugget to take on a specific colour, simply by saying that colour aloud while the nugget is in your inventory.
