In-Game Description

Abyss sorcery discovered by an Oolacile
sorcerer on the brink of madness.
Fire giant Dark Orb.

In contrast to standard soul sorceries,
Abyss sorceries are weighty and inflict
physical damage. Perhaps human souls,
because of their humanity, produce
sorceries with a more tangible presence.
