Larloch's minor drain was an arcane necromancy spell that drained the life of a target creature.[1][2][3][4]

EffectsEdit

The spell drained a small portion of life from a target creature and transferred it to the caster, healing them of any injuries they add. If they had no injuries, then they received a brief boost to their life force instead.[1][2][3][4]

HistoryEdit

The spell was attributed to Larloch the Shadow King of Warlock's Crypt, but it went on to be commonly used in Faerûn through the 13th and 14th centuries DR.[1][2][3][4]

A scroll of Larloch's minor drain was in the Black Wolf Temple in the Vale of Shadows in Icewind Dale in 1281 DR.[3]

Copies of Larloch's minor drain could be bought from the High Hedge in Beregost, Sorcerous Sundries in Baldur's Gate,[1] Waukeen's Promenade in Athkatla,[2] and the Arcana Archives in Saradush in 1368 DR.[5]

The imp Cespenar, operating from Cespenar's Forge in the Abyssal Fortress, was able to combine the sword Foebane and Fflar's Scabbard, such that the sword inflicted Larloch's minor drain every time it struck a foe.[5]
