Zeal                                    Minor Spirit Benediction

Duration : Level/8 Hours                           Minimum Cost: 35 mana
Range : Target PC or Mob

Syntax: Cast 'Zeal' <target>

Suffusing the target with a fanatic fervor, zeal is a close cousin of the
fire spell frenzy. Like that spell, the target will be able to hit both harder
and more accurately, though his armor class will suffer. Unlike frenzy, one
held by this zeal will fight even beyond the limits of his mortal frame,
allowing his hit points to fall into the negatives. However, the body can only
be pushed so far, and taking too much damage, or if the spell expires while
the target is in such a state will both prove fatal.

It is not possible to cast this spell on someone who is already in a berserker
rage. Those imbued with the fervor of this spell will find themselves unable
to either retreat or cower away from battle.

Primary Attribute: Intelligence, Charisma
