Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence (abbreviated as TEA) is a miscellaneous wizard spell which turns an item into a gp light source much like a yellow stone ring.


The spell "Turnwhistle's Effulgent Autiridescence" is a miscellaneous spell requiring a lantern (consumed), a shimmering glass nugget (not consumed), and the focus of an octogram. The target item, once worn, will produce light of the same colour as the glass nugget (at the time of casting). The light will only continue so long as the wearer has sufficient Guild Points. Once GP is run down and the light goes out, the enchanted item must be removed and equipped again before the light will return.

Unlike most other wearable light producing items, these will add a line of text to the wearer's description:

She is surrounded by a soft <colour> glow.

Skeetbraskin's Fuliginous Perdition removes the effect from the item.


This spell costs 150 GP to cast, and takes up 10 units of mind space. It is cast on a wearable item.

Casting messages

You light the lantern and turn the tattered white dress meditatively in your fingers, noting how it reflects the light.
You turn the lantern carefully and place it into the heart of your shimmering glass nugget.
You reach into the heart of your shimmering glass nugget and draw out the essence of lantern light, letting it play around your fingers.
You wrap the tattered white dress carefully in the essence of lantern light, braiding the colourful strands in a complex weave.
The tattered white dress flashes through all of the rainbow's colours before settling into a deep blue glow, which sinks into its surface without a trace.
Whoops, it looks like you didn't tie the weave firmly enough.  The strands of
light abruptly uncoil, lashing you across the face.

Damage is around 200 HP, lantern is consumed.
