Ice Storm                         Path of Wintertide Area Effect

Duration: 4 hours                                    Minimum Cost: 150 mana
Cooldown: 45 hours Range: Current Area

Syntax: cast 'ice storm'

A mage of Wintertide may use this working to summon forth a powerful
blizzard to blanket the area. While the area is so affected, movement cost
therein is tripled, attempts to locate others via the 'where' command will
fail, noticing others entering and leaving rooms grows difficult, and
scanning and archery become all but impossible. Blazing infernos will be
extinguished and prevented, and the area as a whole will grow quite cold, if
not already so. Furthermore, those caught out in the blowing snow will
suffer periodic cold damage. Such a storm may not be summoned underwater.
