Mind Blast. Ranged Spell Attack: +9 to hit, range 60 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (3d8) psychic damage.

Hallucinosis. The sea sload chooses a pearlescent orb it can see within 60 feet. The orb explodes in a psychic wave. Each creature within 10 feet of the orb must make a DC 17 Willpower saving throw.

Each creature within a 5 foot radius of an orb takes 7 (2d6) psychic damage. A creature takes the same damage when it enters the radius for the first time on a turn or ends its turns there. The sea sload can move each orb up to 10 feet on each of its turns. No more than 5 orbs can be active at the same time.

For naughty Altmer children, a mother's warning that the Sload will get them is enough to make them behave, or at least, have nightmares for days. Sload, the slug-like beast-folk of the Coral Kingdom of Thras are creatures that have terrorized the High Elves since before recorded time. These hulking slug-folk are notorious for their necromantic mastery.

These cantankerous creatures live in the Abecean Sea and are loath to treat with any of the races of Tamriel. They are generally hostile and belligerent to all other mortal races, although there is some evidence of diplomatic traffic between the Sload and the Maormer, even though there are plenty of accounts of conflict between the slugmen and the Sea Elves
