Description: The Phoenix's Pyre is a departure from the subtle effects many associate with the Bardly magic. When voiced, the spell will ignite a firestorm around you to consume your enemies. Should flames already wreathe your hapless victims, such as those from naphtha, they will flare with the added intensity.
Effect: Impact damage, Fire damage, Cold damage, Area effect pulsing damage. Will of Winter changes it from fire/impact to fire/cold. Ignites and increases the duration and damage of naphtha.
Example Messaging: [[messaging is::You give sudden voice to the warm chanting in your thoughts, as you release an accompaniment of elemental fire into the piece. The opening syllables quickly intensify into a more savage theme.


Roundtime: 3 sec.
The flames land a heavy strike to an enraged tusky's back!
The flames land a good hit to a zombie stomper's right arm!
The flames land a good hit to a zombie stomper's right leg!

You build the final notes of Phoenix's Pyre with an upward scale that rises into a steep crescendo, and end with an abrupt silence.

With Will of Winter

You give sudden voice to the frigid chanting in your thoughts, as you release a duet of elemental fire and water into the piece. The opening syllables quickly intensify into a more savage theme.

With barely a pause for breath, you neatly segue to the verse of the Phoenix's Pyre. Your scales warm tangibly as you bite off each of the words with a fierceness that seems to incite the very air around you to anger as a conflux of flame and frost is born about you.
The admixture of flames and frost lands a very heavy hit to an enraged tusky's chest!
The elemental maelstrom crashes over a zombie stomper, but it is unharmed.

Notes

  • Area effect pulsing fire/impact damage, weighted towards fire.
  • Being under the effects of Will of Winter will change it to fire/cold damage weighted equally.
  • Both versions cause naphtha to flare up when the spell hits a body part that is doused with naphtha. Both also increase the duration and damage of the ignited naphtha.
  • The bard will appear in the room look as "<Player> who is surrounded by swirling flames."
  • When using the Will of Winter form you will instead appear as "<Player> who is surrounded by an elemental maelstrom."
  • Causes charges of endangering the public when used in justice areas.
