Components shimmering glass nugget

Summons a tiny moth that's the colour of the nugget at the time of casting.

It's like Master Woddeley's Luminescent Companion, but it can also be cast on others.

(Numerically inferior to it, even. There deserves to be a footnote somewhere about how this is not a bad thing.)

Magical, mystical forms appear in your mind.
Grasping the glowing glass nugget, you hold it above you.
You whistle into the wind a calm and peaceful tune.
A tiny deep blue moth flutters into the area and flits towards you.
A tiny muddy moth dives into the area and throws itself to the ground, bursting apart in a cloud of deep blue smoke!
You cough and gag on the smoke.
The smoke clears.

This results in minor damage being done to the caster, around 70 hp, however it is worth noting that a fluked failure will cause at least 1600 hp, possibly much more.

To others
Wizard momentarily takes on a happier disposition.
Wizard holds a glass nugget up and swirls it around slowly.
Wizard whistles an eerie tune into the wind which seems to carry on for miles.
A tiny deep blue moth flutters into the area and flits towards Wizard.


This spell summons a tiny, glowing moth to follow the target. It is not pk-checked, so you can create the moth for anyone.

The moth can be "shoo"ed away, although it will also disappear on its own after a while. This results in:

The tiny <colour> moth vanishes in a gout of green flame.

The moth can be made to follow an existing moth, resulting in two moths, but doing this will prevent any further moths from being created in the room.

If a moth's owner ceases to exist, such as giving the moth to a cabbage and eating it, the moth will depart with a different message. This results in:

The tiny <color> moth flits off, leaving a lasting, colourful trail behind.

The moth is much less chatty than the blue lights from Master Woddeley's Luminescent Companion.

Attacking the moth is a bad idea.
