Cold Steel Hot Blood
Components: S, M
Casting Time: 1 second
Area o Effect: Up to 1 square foot
Saving Throw: None
This spell allows the caster to permanently inscribe a number of characters or symbols in a one square foot area. The Caster maust trace the desired markings as the spell’s somatic compnent, with the resultant script mirroring the width of his index finger. As such, there is a limit to how many characters can be written, especially for pudgy-fingered characters like the Dun-Ador.
Once inscribed, the writing is indelibly affixed to the surface. The only way to remove the writing is to physically chip away the surface upon which it was inscribed. Permanent marks can be covered from view by paint, grime or fungal growth though they will continue to radiate the aura of a warren aligned object and may be detected by casters with open warrens.
