Freezing cloud is a spell of the evocation school used by wizards early in their studies. When cast, freezing cloud creates a tiny pellet of ice, which shoots from the hand of its caster to a spot within fifty feet of him or her. There, the pellet explodes into a cloud of freezing mist over an area of ten feet in radius. Creatures within are subjected to deadly temperatures, the deadliness depending upon how durable the creature in question is. The cloud dissipates on its own after a moment, but the wizard can, if he or she wishes, dismiss it sooner with a little effort. Freezing cloud requires a great deal of concentration on the wizard's part and as such, can only be cast once per day.
