Components

Useful items

Black amulets only protect against damage from the demon AFTER a successful cast and are not a required component any more (blog ).

The damage they can still absorb is proportional to their octarine level. You can wear two amulets to have the second one absorb damage when the first one fails.

Damage from a spell failure is NOT buffered by the black amulet, so beware if you are weak in the methods!

Casting

You move your knife in an arcane gesture, slashing open the boundary between
this dimension and the One Beneath.
Intoning a long string of ugly-sounding words that scratch and tear at your
throat, you place the Mark of Unearthly Perdition on the suave thief's brow.
You reach into the rip between the dimensions, and drag a small black demon
into this reality between thumb and forefinger.
You reach out to the demon while it flies towards the suave thief, all claws
and warts and wide-open jaws, and establish a connection with its foul
unearthly mind in order to share its delight in your victim's pain.

Success

The suave thief stiffens and then contorts in terror.

Failure

The tiny demon does an about-face and marches towards you for a tasty treat.
Oh no!  Something invades your mind!

You repeatedly get damage with messages

You screech: I love dead people.  Often.
Your head slowly rotates around in a full circle.
