Bewitching Gaze (Su)

An ahriman can unleash an overwhelming gaze at a target within 50 feet, inflicting many status effects. The target must make a Fortitude save (DC 20) per each status affect or be inflicted with Blind, Silence, Immobilize, Disable, or Petrify for 1d4 rounds each. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 27).

Confusing Glare (Su)

An ahriman can unleash a mind-affecting gaze against a group of targets within 30-ft.-cone. The targets must make a Will save (DC 20) or be inflicted with Confuse status for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 27).

Roulette (Su)

1/day, Ahriman summons a hand of death that cycles through your allies, yourself, and your foes alike. Choose a creature within 60 feet at random, that creature dies. This spell cannot be reflected back at the caster. Everyone’s numbers must be decided before you make the roll. Roll a die based on the size of the group within the radius and if it happens on fall upon their number, that target dies. If the number happens to be in between two picked numbers, flip a coin to determines who dies. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 9th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 33).

Umbral Storm (Su)

An ahriman can unleash a blinding lightning burst against a group of targets within 50 feet in a 20-ft.-radius burst. Creatures within the area of effect take 8d6 points of lightning damage and are inflicted with the Blind status for 1d4+1 rounds. A successful Reflex (DC 18) halves the damage and negates the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Dungeoneering DC 23).
