DYSHAS OF DU: THE ILLUMINATOR

These dyshas are orange orbs that emit intense light and/or heat.

ORB OF LIGHT
IP: 1    Range: 40 meters

A bright orb gives off light equal to a torch and lasts for about an hour, while the dimmer version is equivalent to a candle and lasts for a whole day if required. The orb can be unwoven at any time by its creator. It remains in one place unless the caster moves it, which requires one hand. It may be bundled (+1 IP) for range or duration.

FLINGERS

and to target extra victims. Extra IP can be spent to modify the damage roll.


FORCE
IP: 5    Range: 30 meters
Duration: Instantaneous

may be bundled (+2 IPs) for range, to target extra victims, or to push targets back further.

TUMBLE
IP: 5    Range: 0

LEVITATE
IP: 5    Range: 0    
Duration: 10 rounds
Description: This orb lifts the caji straight up at 3m per round. A small amount of lateral motion is possible (an arm’s length) and the caji can use an object such as a pole in his or her free hand for leverage and control. When the orb expires, the caji must have somewhere to stand or something to hold onto to prevent falling at a rate that is half of the normal rate. Levitation may be bundled (+2 IPs) to extend its duration or to target a nearby target.

POWER HOLD
IP: 5    Range: 10 METERS

SPINNER

CONSTRICTOR
IP: 20    Range: 5 METERS

DYSHAS OF LAUNTRA: THE FLOW

The soft green isho of Launtra flows over the surface of the body.


FIRE TOUCH
IP: 2    Range: 0   
Duration: 1 round

HEALER

FAINT TOUCH
IP: 1+    Range: 0

QUIET
IP: 5    Range: 0    
Duration: 1 minute
Description: By trickling isho over his or her body, the caster muffles all sounds he or she makes. Normal, relatively quiet sounds (breathing, footsteps, and the like) are completely silenced.
