Description: Taming the magic of the Desert's Maelstrom spell will allow you to push together the elements of Air and Earth, and bend the resulting localized sandstorms to your will. Any foe that finds itself in the path of these swirling masses, will find it hard to maintain their resolve, as the quickly shifting winds will repeatedly shake their balance. Such effects can have wide-ranging results in combat, making this a formidable spell for both offensive and defensive need. Be aware, however, that the forces required for this spell don't work in wet areas.
Effect: -Discipline (stat), Balance damage
Example Messaging: You clap you hands together, willing a conjunction of Air and Earth compressed in the rapidly decreasing space between. A series of small vortices rise up from the gritty sand around you, which spiral outward in all directions as they build in size.

One of the swirling vortices slams into an elder desert armadillo and encompasses it!

Contest Type: magic / reflexes
