Spell-A-Day: The Unforming

The Unforming

Arcana: Akyrus (Chaos)
Target: Single
Range: Limited
Duration: Instant
Focus: A ball of animal fat
Class: Offensive

Common Modifiers

  • Limited Range (-1/4)
  • Partial Transform (+1/2)

This spell alters the living flesh of the target to beyond the grotesque. As the victim suffers the effects of the Unforming, he becomes more and more greatly impaired until he is rendered an invalid. If chaotic energy continues to flow into the target he may ultimately be killed.

This spell targets a hit location completely at random.

The target is affected in stages based on the fraction of BODY that has suffered this transformation. When the effect is rolled the amount totaled must equal or exceed one of these stages or it has no effect. Successive spells can increase the effect stage but the damage rolled is not added to the previous roll… it is resolved independently.

Transform Stages
Hands and Feet require half the listed BODY for each stage, and Arms and Legs require one-third the listed BODY for each stage. However, the actual amount of damage caused should be recorded for purposes of healing.

  • 1/2x BODY: The targeted body part becomes oversized and mangled but is ultimately still functional. This results in a -2/2d6 on all Interaction skills, but may provide a bonus for fear and intimidation if used appropriately.
  • 1x BODY: The targeted body part loses most of its utility. Arms: -5 STR and -1 to all actions with that arm; Legs: -4m Running and a DEX roll to stand each phase of more than a half-move; Hands: -2 to all actions with that hand plus a DEX roll to use any tool effectively each phase; Feet: -4m Running and -2 to all movement related DEX rolls; Head: -1 to all actions and -2 to PER; Chest/Stomach: no post segment 12 recoveries and -1 to all physical actions; Vitals: -1 to all actions and recoveries only once per minute.
  • 1 1/2x BODY: The targeted body part is malformed so badly it is unusable. Arms: limb is unusable; Legs: -8m Running and a DEX roll -2 to stand each phase; Feet: -8m Running and -4 to all movement related DEX rolls; Head: character is blind, deaf, mute, an unable to smell or taste and is at -3 to all actions due to intense pain; Chest/Stomach: character loses (in value) 1d6 STR, CON, and STUN, 2d6 END, as well as 1/2d6 BODY and REC, -1 to all actions and -2 more to all physical actions, cannot recover during post segment 12, and cannot recover more than once per minute; Vitals: character is paralyzed and cannot recover more than once per minute.
  • 2x BODY: The target body part is transformed into a mangled mass of flesh and bone and is completely useless. Head, Chest, Stomach, or Vitals: the character is dead.

Transform Recovery
Recovering from the effects of this spell is possible in one of three ways. As most of this healing is gradual, once an entire stage’s amount of BODY is healed the effects no longer apply.

  • Wrapping the afflicted body part in silver mesh will heal 1 BODY transformed per day. [PS: Apothecary -3 to know this, SS: Herbalism and KS: Arcane Lore complement]
  • If the target personally kills the caster the BODY transformed will be instantly reversed, recovering 1 BODY per minute. [KS: Arcane Lore to know this]
  • Dispel Akyrus or Dispel Essence capable of dispelling an amount of ESS equal to half the BODY transformed. [Thaumaturgy to know this, Akyrus skill levels apply]

Spell-A-Day: Long Step

Long Step

Arcana: Akyrus (Void)
Target: Single
Range: No Range
Duration: Constant
Focus: A piece of mirror-polished coldiron
Class: Offensive/Utility (Restricted)

Common Modifiers

  • Advanced Form (-1/4)
  • Usable Nearby (+1 1/4), Grantor pays the END whenever the power is used, Grantor controls the power totally
  • Side Effects, Side Effect occurs automatically whenever Power is used (0 DCV if PER Roll failed on arrival (Akyrus skill levels apply); -1/2)
  • Leaves A Trail (Space between locations distorted; -0)
  • Once Destination Is Set It Cannot Be Changed (-1/2)
  • Noncombat Movement Only (-1/4)
  • Spell (+0)


The shaper forces space and time to bend between his current location and any point he can see. This allows the shaper and any nearby targets of his choice to step between the two points as if there was no more than 2m distance between them. Taking this step is very disorienting however, and many who travel this way arrive on their knees, completely disoriented. The shaper can hold the fold in space to remain as long as he concentrates. If the shaper is familiar with any structure at the location, and there is a direct, unobstructed line to that location, he could appear inside the structure (having passed through an open door or window), even if he can’t see those details directly. If the shaper has access to pure cosmic energy he can enhance thsi spell further. Each point of akyrus aspected Essence (or pure Qliphotic elemental chaos) used to deepen the fold doubles the distance.

Spell-A-Day: Primordial Whispers & Visions

Primordial Whispers & Visions

Arcana: Akyrus (Void)
Target: Single
Range: Limited
Duration: Constant
Focus: A crushed earwig
Class: Offensive

Common Modifiers

  • Limited Range (-1/4)
  • Affects Desolidified Any form of Desolidification (+1/2)
  • Spell (+0)
  • Attack Versus Alternate Defense (Mental Defense; +0)
  • Expanded Effect (x2 Characteristics or Powers simultaneously) (+1/2)
  • Constant (+1/2)
  • Extra Time (Half Phase, -1/4)


The shaper opens a window beyond the void for the target to witness things it was not meant to know. As the target receives a glimpse of this unknowable horror, he is further blessed to hear the faintest of Qliphothic whispers. This experience shatters the target’s grasp of reality as his mind struggles to bring things back into order. Strong minded targets may suffer only fleeting confusion, while weak minded fools may find themselves struggling with even the simplest of activities for a significant period of time.

Targets reduced to INT 0 and PRE 0 will find themselves unable to take any action, and though they may wish to flee they are so feebleminded they do not have any sense of how to do so. Even after a target recovers from the effects of the spell she may be skittish or listless for some time to come.

As long as the shaper continues to spend a Half Phase Attack action and the necessary ESS to maintain the effect, the target will experience primoridal whispers and visions. Points “drained” beyond INT 0 or PRE 0 still need to be recovered before the characteristics increase from 0. For example, an INT 10 and PRE 10 target is drained for 15 points. The characteristics are not reduced below 0, but 5 points will need to be recovered before the target’s INT and PRE begin increasing from 0 and start recovering to their normal values. A shaper can incapacitate a target for a longer period of time in this way.

1 Drain INT & PRE 1 point
2 Drain INT & PRE 1/2d6
3 Drain INT & PRE 1d6
4 Drain INT & PRE 1d6+1
5 Drain INT & PRE 1 1/2d6

8 Drain INT & PRE 2 1/2d6
10 Drain INT & PRE 3d6
11 Drain INT & PRE 3d6+1
12 Drain INT & PRE 3 1/2d6
13 Drain INT & PRE 4d6

Spell-A-Day: Warp Wall

Warp Wall (Akyrus — Void)

Class:           Offensive
Duration:    Enchantment
Focus:          A drop of mercury in a vial of water
Range:         Limited
Target:         Area (see text)

The shaper weakens the essence at a fixed point just enough for the void to warp space. The warp zone radiates out along a vertical axis, creating a 4m radius disk-shaped “wall”. If the center of the warp zone is placed on a solid surface, the warp zone is reflected to create a 6m radius half-disk-shaped “wall”, and if placed in a corner of two solid surfaces it will radiate out to create a 9m radius quarter-disk “wall”. The thickness of the “wall” is 2m.

Anything that comes into contact with wall is attacked (OMCV vs. DCV) and thrown (if successful) in a random direction 1m per extra STR of the warp effect over the STR necessary to lift the target (see Throwing, p. XX). This throw can be resisted with casual STR as normal, and a potential target can prepare to “break through” the warp effect during its Phase and use its full STR.

Direction will be random (roll 1d6: 1 = 120 deg. left, 2 = 60 deg. left, 3-4 = back, 5 = 60 deg. right, 6 = 120 deg. right). The target will take damage using the STR of the warp effect if thrown into a solid object, or half that if simply thrown and landing back on the ground. Of course, the target could be thrown off a cliff or a building….

Common Modifiers:

  • Time Limit (Enchantment; Constant Power; +1/4)
  • Costs Endurance Only To Activate (+1/4)
  • Area Of Effect Nonselective (16 2m Areas, fixed shape; +1/2)
  • Affects Desolidified Any form of Desolidification (+1/2)
  • No Conscious Control (Only Effects cannot be controlled; -1)
  • Limited Range (-1/4)

Spell-A-Day: Primordial Utterance

This is a spell for the Narosia: Sea of Tears RPG.

Primordial Utterance (Akyrus – Void)

Target:         Single
Range:         Limited
Duration:    Instant
Focus:          A gold coin pierced by coldiron
Class:           Offensive

The shaper opens a tiny rift to a plane beyond the void to allow the briefest sliver of a phoneme uttered by a primordial Qliphothic entity to be heard in this world. The presence of this unreal sound is deafening, and can sometimes be heard from 1000m distant (farther in the right conditions). This utterance is directed at a single target, which damages the bond between the target’s soul and its body. If the utterance kills the target, the soul is blasted into the void and can only be saved through divine intervention or extraplanar travel to retrieve it. Additionally, the target’s body must be made whole and re-primed to receive a soul as its physical integrity has been undone at a cosmic level. On the plus side, the body cannot host the Fel and rise as undead.

Common Modifiers:
⦁   Cannot Use Targeting (-1/2)
⦁   Side Effects, Side Effect occurs automatically whenever Power is used (Drain 1 BODY per 2 EFF, and 1 STUN per 1 EFF (Recovery per minute); -1/2)
⦁   Limited Range (-1/4)
⦁   Limited Power Only Works On The Living (-1/4)
⦁   Attack Versus Alternate Defense (Resistant Power Defense; +1)
⦁   Does BODY (+1)
⦁   Affects Desolidified Magical Desolidification Only (+1/4)
⦁   Perceivable (Hearing PER Roll +8; Deafening; -1/2)

Revised Enaros Relationship Map

I spent a little time revising my Enaros Relationship Map to limit long distance connections and adjust for node density. While the revision is still quite busy, I think it is clearer how the relationships map out. I am also providing the draft Enaros Relationship Map PDF which includes the index of the relationship path numbers.

The shadow down the middle represents the spine of the book as this is a 2-page spread.
