Description: Soul Sickness is the most elementary spell available to aspiring spiritual warriors. Rather than directly blast at the health of the soul, it creates a spiritual 'weight' to crush down on the victim.
Effect: Immobilizes and forces kneeling.
Example Messaging: You gesture at a grass eel.

Slippery as an eel, a spiritual tendril creeps into its soul, engendering a powerful sense of indecisiveness. The grass eel takes on an ill, brooding appearance.
It drops to its knees before you.
Roundtime: 2 sec.

Backlash effect when cast on undead:
You gesture at a goblin zombie.
With no living spirit to manipulate, the spell recoils upon you!
Your skin crawls at the clammy touch of your own magic.
Roundtime: 10 sec.

Contest Type: spirit / willpower
Devices/Tattoos: Grey inkpot (1), Tightly rolled scroll of blackened paper


  • Does not function against undead (they are invalid targets).
  • If cast without a valid target it will instead turn on you, causing roundtime.
  • The current theory holds that induced roundtime duration is based upon weight of success in the spirit vs willpower stat contest.
  • Does not cause Empathic Shock when cast by an Empath.
