Created by the Seers of Shambala, this death spell takes three days to prepare. Once prepared, it takes but one further action, taken anytime thereafter, to cast the spell. It creates a phantom image of a white candle with a black flame on the wick. This image represents the melting of the subject’s soul. The sorcerer sets the duration, which cannot be less than 1 day or more than a fortnight. When the mystic candle burns down and extinguishes itself, the subject dies and his soul is forced to flee the mortal realms forever.

Material Component: The sorcerer must first fashion a soul candle in his mind. The ghostly, mental conception melts to nothingness during the course of the spell.
Experience Point Cost: This mental construct costs 50 XP/HD of the subject
