Drawing on his combined studies of temperature and currents, an adept of
fire and air can call forth a blistering wave of heat to sweep through his
entire area. Adventurers caught in this heatwave will suffer fatigue,
resulting in a loss of movement. Those who fail to save will find
themselves greatly wearied, taking penalties to strength or dexterity and
possibly growing very thirsty. The effects of heatwave are cumulative.
