Chilling blow was a swordmage spell of the transmutation school, most commonly used by those of the shielding style. When cast, chilling blow instilled the swordmage's weapon with magical cold, so that the wound they left froze instantly, causing the target a level of pain proportional to the swordmage's intellect. This frozen flesh continued to injure its owner for a short while afterward; precisely how much dependent upon the vitality of the swordmage in question. The spell was not particularly complex and it could be recast after a short rest of at least a few minutes.
