Syntax: cast 'steam'

With the steam spell, a mage of water and fire may surround themselves
with an aura which gives off steam into most room he enters. The steamcloud
will then hang in the air for some time, scorching and disorienting any who
enter, including the caster himself. The thick cloud will furthermore
prevent scanning through the room, save for those who do so without the use
of eyes.
