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[5] and dazzles[6] could innately create this magical effect.

EffectsEdit

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]

Notable UsersEdit

The Zakharan potion merchant Bahija Jalin was able to brew a mixture imbued with the power of the ventriloquism spell, yet she rarely sold it.[7]

ComponentsEdit

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

HistoryEdit

The spell was invented by the Netherese arcanist Dace in −1859 DR.[8]
