Prismatic ray was an evocation spell that fired a beam of colored light from the caster's hand to a target creature. The beam could temporarily blind those affected, and had various other properties based on its color.
|Blue||Target turned to stone|
|Indigo||Target turned insane|
|Violet||Target sent to another plane|
Occasionally, two effects could be triggered simultaneously.
The interplay of arcane energies involved in this spell could cause sensations of nausea in the caster.
- The scepter of the ar-magus, a magical scepter associated with the primordial Bazim-Gorag, could be used to cast prismatic ray (among other spells).
