Holy Ground                             Spirit/Earth Area Effect

Duration: 6 hours                                  Minimum Cost: 200 mana
Cooldown: 24 hours Requires Annointing Oil
Range: Entire area

Syntax: cast 'holy ground'

By pouring out annointing oils upon the ground, a mage who studies both
spirit and earth can extend a blessing to an entire area. An area thus
consecrated will double the mana cost of casting void spells. Furthermore,
those of good alignment will find it easier to save against spells in such
an area, and additionally take less damage. These effects are all lesser
than those of the sanctify spell, which stacks only partially with this spell.

Primary Attribute: Intelligence
