Syntax: Cast 'Maelstrom'

The undisputed masters of the open seas, scholars of the Waveborne are able to
make them rise up against their foes. So long as they are in a space where
there are at least three adjacent rooms on or under water, they may cast this
spell, raising the entire contingous body of water in a maelstrom. Maelstrom
waters will continually both lag and damage everyone save the caster within
them; those affected by aquatic movement, Sunset sigil, or are themselves
Waveborne will be less affected. Anyone not caught in a whirlpool, excepting
those affected by the anchor spell, might get thrown out of the room.

The recast delay ranges from 50 to 17.5 hours, dependent on the caster's
proficiency with the spell.
