Al'Hrahaz's Scintillating Blorpler (abbreviated as AHSB) is a miscellaneous wizard spell which turns a piece of jewellery into a blorple for use with Jogloran's Portal of Cheaper Travel.

Spell details

This is a big brother to the spell Amazing Silicate Blorpler.

This spell creates a component for another spell. The required piece of target jewellery is imprinted with the memory of the caster's current location. The imprinted target (known as a Blorple) can then be used in the spell Jogloran's Portal of Cheaper Travel to open portals between locations.

Spell failure will cause considerable damage to the caster and destroy the piece of target jewellery. The caster is encouraged to use an impact shield produced by the spell Transcendent Pneumatic Alleviator for protection, but still may sustain serious damage. Damage can be in the range of 1500 or more HP.

The piece of target jewellery must be worn for the casting, and cannot be covered (for example by gloves).

Note: Value of jewellery does not affect difficulty of the spell, or the damage caused by spell failure.

The spell Worstler's Advanced Metallurgical Glance may be used to scry the location imprinted on the piece of target jewellery.

Casting

This spell costs 90 GP to cast, and takes up 25 units of mind space. It is cast on a piece of jewellery.
