Azthoran Chryssel's magic

Arcane Focus

Azthoran's arcane focus is the icon of his patron, Dumathroth: a gemstone eye inside a lantern. This design is sewn into the inner arm of both arms on his tunic. Azthoran carries a lantern which bears a gemstone eye with him as well - the gemstone is not particularly valuable on its own, however.

Spells

Eldritch Blast

Verbal Components

oeul, a word from the dead language of Fost, which is the word for a shooting star

Somatic Components

pressing fingers into one's palm in a specific pattern and rhythm

Description

Azthoran's palm emits something that appears as a section of the night sky: a dark void dotted with frosty white and distant amber stars with occasional violet clouds. As the blast moves, the stars and cloud fields remain stationary to the viewer(s) while the borders move. It looks as if a window to deep space were moving.

The entire effect - projection, traversal and collision - is silent, save for the verbal component and any sound uttered by the target.

Minor Illusion

Somatic Components

crossing the pinky and ring fingers while making a ring with the middle finger and thumb and also crooking the index finger

Material Components

a bit of fleece, replaced by the icon of Dumathroth

Description

For visual illusions, the light briefly bends and refracts while forming the image. If needed, shadows congeal into a fluid almost-substance which is sculpted into the illusion as well. These elements remain (or appear) when someone understands the illusory nature of the vision.

For auditory effects, the sound simply occurs.

Charm Person

Verbal Components

har'ch no gravthrist. Azthoran has not been able to identify the language these words are from.

Somatic Components

tracing an x with one's index finger and then grasping the space which would hold the sigil

Description

Azthoran gains temporary insight into the kinds of body language, speech patterns and mannerisms that make the target feel comfortable and friendly. This works to subtly guide Azthoran's behavior to ingratiate him onto the target. He can attempt to actively tap into this knowledge to manipulate the target as well.

If the target succeeds on their save, Azthoran is so obvious about playing to the target's preferences that the manipulation fails embarassingly.

Dissonant Whispers

Verbal Components

There are no magic words or phrases for this spell but the sound must be able to be heard by the target to take effect.

Description

The discordant sounds Azthoran makes are the sounds celestial bodies emit, when translated into sounds mortals can perceive.

Hideous Laughter

Verbal Components

ver'dona miskearmn - a phrase that roughly translates to "divine comedy" in Primordial.

Somatic Components

a hand held palm to the sky and then inverted and thrust downward

Material Components

tiny tarts and a feather waved in the air, replaced by the icon of Dumathroth

Description

For the duration of the spell, the target's thoughts are flooded with the utter futility of existence (from a cosmological scale) and buckles under the realization, laughing helplessly at the misery of their own part in the sad joke of reality.

Eldritch Invocations

Agonizing Blast

Azthoran's Edritch Blast gains ominous garnet-colored stars and cloud fields.

Mask of Many Faces (Disguise Self)

Verbal Components

houranst. This is the term the Grey Elves used for a lie that someone has committed themselves to.

Somatic Components

Quickly adjusting how one's clothes are worn is all the spell requires.

Description

Azthoran briefly takes on a multifaceted, gemstone-like aspect while light bends and refracts to form his new visage.
