Spell: Voorish Sign

Voorish Sign
Level: 1
Duration: Instant
Range: 10'/per hit point invested

The caster makes a gesture with their hand that causes all invisible things within the spell's area of effect to make a Save or become visible for 1d4 seconds. Expending hit points will extend the range or duration of the effect on a 1 to 1 basis, i.e. one hit point spent will grant either another ten feet of range or another 1d4 seconds of visibility.

Each hit point invested in this spell grants the caster a cumulative 5% chance to drive off any invisible/immaterial creature within the spell's area of effect. Most immaterial creatures gain a Save, but the caster can spend additional hit points to force a -1 penalty to their Save, at a cost of 1d4 hit points for each -1 penalty inflicted on the target. This is over and above the initial cost.

Every two hit points invested in this spell will cause 1d4 damage to a Horla.

Only beings with humanoid hands can perform this spell.


  1. Machen and de Maupassant with the same spell! Good stuff.

  2. Two of our favorite authors. We're still looking for a good adaptation of The Horla on youtube...there are a few different versions up there...

    1. Something we've been working on for a long time. It's inspired by the works of Machen & Bierce and a few other things. We moved it back so we could wrap-up a few other projects like the Worldboats. There are several new spells taken from this region that will be included in a spell compilation pdf coming shortly, like within a week or so, barring unforeseen obstacles...which, funny enough, is a spell included in the booklet...
