Saturday Spell-Silent Cold Snap Arrow

ColdSnap“Quiet night,” Hruk murmured. The animals had stopped their night sounds to the South.

“Probably just an undead raid,” Murka grunted, continuing his whittling. He didn’t like the undead much, but they made good fodder.

The whistle of an arrow was cut off by total silence as he was blasted by a burst of cold from behind.

Here’s a spell my players came up with for neutralizing isolated towers without alerting other towers. The casting character has a Bloodspell Dagger and uses Stealth Magic (no words), so he wanted something he could cast in the about 50 SP he could get from a level 1 orc fighter, but that could last until the next tower. He gets a 75% discount on the Cold/Silence Arc due to Arcane Casting levels, so that’s what he uses.

Zo (Negativity Arc):

Right Hand: Order (Half)

Using half the Zo to create silence and the other half for cold, the spell completely cancels out its own sound, which is great for knocking out targets without alerting the towers 200 meters or so away through the forest. It does 3d6 cold damage with 1 AoE finger for 25% damage 6 feet out. With his levels in Stealth Magic, my player could double all his damage and AoE while keeping it silent with 8 bonus DoP, but it’s still a good spell without that doubling. If you can’t double the whole thing, be sure to remember to keep silence in pace with damage. The spell disappears in 1.5 hours if not used.

This spell costs 50 SP. With Pure Magic, Order (Half) can be replaced at equal cost and less casting time with juo or wa for an extra 1.5 hours of duration. A pretty good arrow enhancement for group assassination.

Interested in cold spells? They’re another way to deal damage and the Zo arc can have a lot of effects, it’s probably worth getting. Any other spell types you’d like? Tell us below and we may do it in a coming week.
