Ghastly hands was a necromancy spell that transformed the spellcaster's hands to those of a ghast.[1]


For the duration of the spell, the caster's mere touch was capable of paralyzation. They emitted a distinct, foul odor that was recognizable to anyone who had previous encountered a ghast.[1]

The caster could end the effects of the spell at will, but any paralyzation they caused could not abated, and ran its course.[1]


The casting of this spell required verbal and somatic components.[1]


This spell was known to be used by wizards of the Cult of the Dragon.[1]
