Grease (originally called Shan's tallow[1]) was a low-powered conjuration spell of the creation subschool used by arcane casters to cover a solid surface in an oily film.[4] Some clerics of Ghaunadaur,[9][10] Ilsensine,[11] Laogzed,[11] and Moander[12] were granted the power of grease by their deities, and ooze genasi could create a similar effect.[13]

Effects[]

This spell would coat a single object or a ten-foot-square surface within a close range with a layer of slippery grease, which would last for a number of seconds depending on the power of the caster.[4]

Components[]

In addition to verbal and somatic components, the caster required a piece of butter or a bit of pork rind to cast this spell, which disappeared.[4]

History[]

The spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Shan in −644 DR.[14]
