Narquin's Mist of Doom (abbreviated as NMD) is an first order offensive spell requiring a knife. The caster holds the knife in their hand and uses it to slice open their other hand. The spell then turns the blood into an acid-like mist which splashes the target, burning them. Upon cutting themselves, the caster will take damage.

If the spell is cast while Chrenedict's Corporeal Covering of chalk or metal variety is active, the spell will not work unless the latex version is used. This can be countered by the use of a Jagged sparkly knife, although while this knife will let you cast the spell with chalk or metal CCC, each cast will remove a layer of the CCC until none is left.

This spell has been reported changed on May 13 2011, and again . Exactly what was changed is not yet known.research
