Fun With Spell Stealing Eels

Clerics sometimes forget how annoying it can be to have a spell stolen, so it is somewhat refreshing and a little comical that the most recent wave of Hollow-Eve lead-in monsters use Idon’s Theft, too. While their magics make them powerful enough to rip a spell from me, I was still able to take some back.

Here’s one exchange:

>steal eel
You turn your gaze on a lapis-hued cloud eel, letting a jolt of Idon’s Theft engulf your sight.
Limned in cobalt lightning flash, the simulacrum of a primed spell pattern is disclosed to your senses.  You cloud the cloud eel’s mind with psychic cacophony while you reconfigure the intersections of mana lines, successfully usurping the Air Lash spell!
Roundtime: 2 sec.
>
R>tar
You begin to weave mana lines into a target pattern around a lapis-hued cloud eel.
>
A lapis-hued cloud eel turns its gaze on you, eyes ablaze with a tempestuous silver sheen.
Eerie unspoken words reverberate in your ears, captivating your thoughts in a maze of untruth and cajolery, until the cloud eel has irreparably ruined the Air Lash spell you were shaping!
And here’s a different one a bit later:
>steal eel
You turn your gaze on a lapis-hued cloud eel, letting a jolt of Idon’s Theft engulf your sight.
Limned in cobalt lightning flash, the simulacrum of a primed spell pattern is disclosed to your senses. You cloud the cloud eel’s mind with psychic cacophony while you reconfigure the intersections of mana lines, successfully usurping the Geyser spell!

You gesture at a turquoise cloud eel.
You contribute your harnessed streams to increase the pattern’s potential.
You feel a connection to waters deep below you, and you manipulate them to surge upwards. A spout of steamy water erupts from the ground, sending bits of dirt through the air. You quickly divert the superheated water and steam toward a turquoise cloud eel.
A jet of scalding water impacts its dorsal side, wreathing it in a billow of superheated steam.
The cloud eel is stunned!
