Quake                                    Major Earth Area Attack

Duration: Instantaneous                               Minimum Cost: 20 mana
Range: Caster's Room

Syntax: cast 'quake'

This spell will cause a minor earthquake in the caster's room,
potentially causing all occupants -- save for the caster and his group -- to
stumble and fall. Drakes and earth elementals are unaffected by this, as
are those who are flying or stabilized. In addition, particularly dextrous
characters may manage to retain their footing. Anyone who falls over will
take damage and be briefly stunned.
