An ether phone, also called a tornado phone, is a magical method of communication. It resembles a tornado in a jar. If the person receiving a call does not have an ether phone themself, then the caller will appear as a translucent figure. If the receiver does, then they will appear as a miniature figure inside the ether phone.
An ether phone call can be hung up with earth magic, or with actual earth or metal. It is, however, more conventional to use magic. If one has a physical ether phone during the call, they can hang up by turning the ether phone upside down.
