Azthoran Chryssel's magic

Spell components

Azthoran has learns his magic by finding and exploiting anomalies and abberations in the laws of reality. These secrets have been pulled from the mind, such as it is, of his patron: Dumathroth.

Using these quirks of nature to produce an effect usually require him to recite a phrase or make a series of gestures. Occasionally it also requires some physical component, which he keeps in a special set of pouches.

Known 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.

Guidance

Verbal Components

om'l nuorath straen - translates to "remember what will have happened" in Common

Somatic Components

Open the Book of Shadows, scan the page inscribed with the Guidance cantrip

Description

Shimmering gemstone reflections surround Azthoran's hand and fade when he touches them for the spell.

Light

Mind Sliver

Verbal Components

ivenoach glouph - meaning unknown

Description

According to the Book of Shadows, these words burrow into the target's mind, temporarily disorienting them. The psychic dissonance is apparently quite painful.

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

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.

Spare the Dying

Misty Step

Verbal Components

hranel - translates to "a rift" in a precursor language to Undercommon

Description

A crack in reality opens (as if in a stone) and engulfs Azthoran. Another rift appears where he reappears. In between is something like a cave tunnel filled with stars.
