Description: Another spell that fashions itself toward hastening the forces of natural decay the Carrion Call spell is the natural extention of what Compost does, but applied toward more complex organic structures. The spell, stylized after the vulture, a well-known scavenging bird, manifests multiple streams of energy infused with highly concentrated Life energy and directs them towards the target. The streams of energy swirl and twist about the target before striking. Though this energy cannot be finely controlled, it does tend to seek out injuries that are present in the victim causing normal bodily functioning to cease. This results in a sudden, rapid decay to the location it affects.
Effect: Slice damage, Fire damage, Less damage than normal, but tends to hit wounded body parts.
Example Messaging: You lift your right hand, forming your fingers into the shape of a vulture's talons.

With the deep, hissing growl of a hungry vulture, a cascade of deep purple streams of energy come into being, forming up to swirl menacingly around the musk hog, clawing and grasping at its body!
The streams of energy completely encircle a musk hog's neck, attaching to the entire neck. The streams vanish, revealing nothing but a cracking spine, which completely turns to dust in a matter of seconds!
The musk hog falls to the ground and lies still.
The bugs finally cease swarming over a musk hog.

Notes

  • Damage weighted towards fire.
  • This spell does reduced damage per hit because of the wound seeking trait, although this reduction is less than it used to be as of Magic 3.2.
