Description: Long employed in varying forms by many Warrior Mages, the Mantle of Flame spell is one of the rarefied patterns known as Elemental Transformations, carrying with it the limitations of such magic. By invoking a metaphysical manifestation of Fire energy in your body, it will augment your agility and melee accuracy, cause your unarmed blows to burn where they strike, and allow you to see in darkened areas.
Effect: +Brawling skill, +Large Blunt skill, +Large Edged skill, +Polearms skill, +Small Blunt skill, +Small Edged skill, +Staves skill, +Twohanded Blunt skill, +Twohanded Edged skill, +Agility (stat), -Stealth skill, Fire damage, brawling only
Example Messaging: You raise your fist toward the sun.

The mental strain of this pattern is considerably eased by your ritual focus.
A crackling mantle of blazing orange-yellow flames surrounds you, sinking into and melding with your body as the transformation takes hold. You feel swifter.

BRAWLING:
Your fist is sheathed by a ring of fire!
<attack>

HIDING:
The fact that you're glowing like a torch massively hinders your attempt...
You melt into the background, convinced that your attempt to hide went unobserved.
