Campaign Design - Spells: Freezing Fog

Freezing Fog (adapted from School of Evocation)
Evocation (Cold)

Level: Sorcerer/Wizard 2
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 feet + 10 feet per caster level)
Target, Effect, or Area: Cloud centered on target point spreads 30 feet and is 20 feet high
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: See text
Spell Resistance: No

This spell creates a stationary cloud of chill mist in a radius around the selected target point. The mist obscures all sight , including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. Creatures within 5 feet have one-half concealment so attacks suffer a 20% miss chance. Creatures farther away than 5 feet have total concealment so attacks suffer a 50% miss chance and the attacker cannot use sight to locate the target.

Freezing fog also covers surfaces within its confines with a slippery coating of frost and ice. Any creature entering the area or caught in the mist when it appears must make a Reflex save or slip and fall. Creatures that make their Reflex saves may move at half-speed. Any creature within the mist must make a Reflex save each round to avoid falling and to be able to move. The coating of frost and ice could impose penalties to Reflex saves or checks depending on the nature of the surface in question. This aspect of freezing fog is similar to a grease spell.

A moderate wind of 11 or more miles per hour disperses the freezing fog in 4 rounds. Strong winds of 21 or more miles per hour disperse the spell in 1 round. The effects of icy surfaces persist for the spell's entire duration, even if freezing fog is dispersed.
