Spell Effect. A
rather unique spell, Area of Frost causes the
cár'áll in the air around the mage to
shift, increasing in power and bending towards
Earth. As a result, the temperature in
the air goes down. On lower levels, it will cause discomfort, while on higher
levels the cold will actually be damaging. (It should be noted that while the
temperature in the air around the caster goes down, the caster is not affected
due to the nature of this spell. Technically, the spell does not affect the air
in close proximity of the caster.)
This spell has several usages: In combat, to slow down the enemies, or even freeze them to death. However, that is the most direct use. On higher levels, one can actually use this spell to cross a lake - by using this spell to freeze a part of the lake, and then walk onwards, the water freezing under your feet.
Casting Procedure. The caster must chew a couple of rosemint leaves, and then speak the spell formula aloud. After that, the spell will activate, lowering the temperature in an area around the caster. The effect will last for a while, but can be terminated by the caster at any given time.
Magical Formula. Still to be added
Target. Area of Frost will affect a set area around the caster. Everything in the area of effect becomes chilled.

Counter Measures/Enhancing Measures.
To counter this spell, one can use spells protecting against cold. Eventually,
the spell can also be dispelled from the caster.
There is no direct way of enhancing this spell, however if the air is moist, it will have a greater effect. True power of this spell is achieved during rainy days... but the rain can actually turn to hail in the area of effect.
