Ice

Evocation [Art, Cold]

  • Level: Swordmage 6
  • Casting Time: 1 attack action
  • Range: Personal
  • Area: Cylinder 30ft wide, 60ft tall, with a 5ft clear in the center
  • Duration: Instantaneous and 1 round
  • Saving Throw: Fortitude Half and Reflex Half (see text)

Swinging the flail of blue glass above his head, the Swordmage suddenly brings it down before him. As it shatters, a vicious, cold wind springs to life around him, carrying with it shards of ice.

All creatures caught in the area of effect take 1d8 Cold damage per two levels, to a maximum of 10d8 Cold damage at 20th level, 2d8 Bludgeoning damage plus 1d8 Bludgeoning damage per odd level, to a maximum of 10d8 Bludgeoning damage at 19th level. A successful Fortitude save halves the Cold damage, while a successful Reflex save halves the Bludgeoning damage.

In addition, all surfaces within the area of effect become slick with a thin coating of frost. This effect is functions as a Grease spell with a duration of 1 round.

If the Swordmage has activated at least two other Incantations with the Art descriptor in this round, the frost on the ground persists for a number of rounds equal to half the Swordmage's charisma modifier. He is unaffected by the frost.
