Syntax: cast 'scorched earth'

A mage of flame and stone may hurl a ball of fire to the ground where it
will fuse the earth, blasting into a spray of glassy shrapnel. This will
deal piercing damage to any it strikes; while this cannot be saved, some of
those in the room may -- or may not -- avoid the shrapnel altogether. Those
grouped with the caster will always be spared.

Should a victim be struck by the jagged glass, he must make a save or suffer
a bleeding wound. Regardless of whether struck by shrapnel or not, if the
spell is cast underground the reverberations will cause all ungrouped
targets to make a save or suffer temporary deafness.
