Talonblade was a spell unique to Maztica.[1]


A caster used this spell to enchant a single stone weapon. It could be cast on a blade of stone or the tip of a rock. The spell increased the damage inflicted by the weapon. Additionally, any damage the weapon sustained was absorbed by the spell. When the spell expired, the absorbed damage took effect, often destroying the weapon.[1][2]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, the spell required a material component: a claw from a jaguar.[1][2]
