“It was just a colour out of space—a frightful messenger from unformed realms of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it; from realms whose mere existence stuns the brain and numbs us with the black extra-cosmic gulfs it throws open before our frenzied eyes.”
-H.P. Lovecraft, “The Colour out of Space”. 1927.

Useful Info

Spatial vortices come into being in one of three ways: as a Translocations miscast effect, through the actions of a spatial maelstrom, or as the result of Xom wanting to have fun with you. In either case, spatial vortices are permanently confused, swirling storms of chaos, dealing heavy physical damage as well as distortion effects each time they hit something.

Tips & Tricks

If you have decent long-ranged attack capabilities, kill it from a distance, keeping 3+ tiles of space between you at all times. If you don't have such capabilities, just walk away.
