Caustic Blast                                 Earth/Water Attack

Duration (burning): 1 hour                             Minimum Cost: 22 mana

Syntax: cast 'caustic blast' <target>

With this spell, a mage of earth and water may blast their foe with
stinging, caustic acid. This will deal acid damage and, if unsaved, will
cling to the target and burn them continuously. The acid may destroy wands,
magical staves, and scrolls in their inventory and do permanent damage to
their clothing's armour class. Should the target be struck again and again
fail to save, the intensity of the continuous burn will increase (up to a
limit), and its duration will be renewed.
