Diabolic grasp was a moderately complex spell known to warlocks, particularly those of the infernal pact. When cast, diabolic grasp allowed a warlock to lift a creature of an ogre's size or smaller within fifty feet of him or her with a summoned talon from the Hells and move them telekinetically a distance of at least five feet. The creature could be tossed as far as ten feet, or possibly further, if the caster was an infernal warlock of considerable intelligence. The spell was both physically and mentally straining on its caster, its power dependent in part upon the durability of the warlock, and once cast it couldn't be recast without a rest of at least a few minutes on the warlock's part.
