Casting messages

Message and success:

You prepare to cast Myrandil's Mask of Death.
You place a human head in the middle of the octogram.
You imagine what it would take to re-grow the head, then reverse the process.
You send out your thoughts, trying to lure a nearby spirit near you.
The instant a careless spirit crosses the octogram's boundaries, you grab it with all the force of your will.
You drain the spirit's power and feed it into the head.
The head flares with green light and then crumbles into nothingness.
You feel your features twist, your skin wrinkle and your flesh move.
