Daltim's fiery tentacles was an arcane conjuration spell that caused flaming tentacles to emerge from the ground and grapple and burn creatures within reach. It was developed by Daltim Flamefist of Halruaa.[1]

Effects[edit | edit source]

The spell functioned in all ways like the well-known Evard's black tentacles[1] causing a 40-foot-wide (12 meters) area to erupt with 10-foot-long (3 meters) rubbery black tentacles. Emerging from all flat surfaces, they tried to grab, grapple, and crush all within the area.[2] To this, Daltim's fiery tentacles added a blue-white flame that wreathed the writhing members, burning as well as crushing the unfortunates trapped within.[1]

Components[edit | edit source]

Like Evard's black tentacles, Daltim's fiery tentacles required the usual verbal and somatic components and a piece of a tentacle of a giant octopus or squid.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The spell was developed by the Halruaan mage Daltim Flamefist sometime in the mid–14th century DR.[1]

By 1373 DR, Daltim's fiery tentacles was also known to Thebadol, a Halruaan elder.[3]
