Ventriloquism (originally called Dace's ventriloquism[1]) was an illusion spell from the figment subschool that allowed one to throw his or her voice.[2]

Some creatures, such as slayer genies[7] and dazzles could innately create this magical effect.[8]


By speaking into a cone made from rolled-up parchment, the caster could throw his or her voice within a relatively close range, making it sound as if it had come from someone or somewhere else.[2]


To cast this spell required a verbal component in addition to the parchment used as its focus.[2]


The spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Dace in −1859 DR.[9]
