Shatter (originally called Aksa's shatter[1]) was a sonic spell from the school of evocation, common among both arcane and divine spellcasting traditions.[4] It was one of the spells infused within a staff of open doors.[9]

EffectsEdit

Casting of this spell produced a tintinnabulation of sound so powerful that it could damage or shatter brittle objects, including crystalline creatures,[4] such as crysmals.[10] It was one of the only spells that could damage a demilich.[11]

The spell had a close range and could be targeted over an area of ten feet (three meters) in diameter or focused on a single target item or creature.[4]

ComponentsEdit

To cast this spell required verbal and somatic components. In addition, a cleric had to clutch his or her (un)holy symbol, and an arcane spellcaster had to use a chip of mica, which was consumed in the process.[4]

HistoryEdit

The spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Aksa the Destroyer in −2131 DR.[12]

The spell was also recorded in The Codicil of White, an unholy work of Aurilian magic.[13][14]
