Description: Many scholars and clergy insist that Dergati is the most venomous and spiteful of all the gods or their aspects. Hers is a method more direct and more twisted by hatred than the games of trickster Huldah or the torturing caress of Aldauth. The spell known as Spite of Dergati is an ancient magic, long thought destroyed by the righteous in the hopes it never saw the light of day again."

Spite of Dergati is powerful and dangerous in the wrong hands, for it forces all mana out of an area, effectively warding that zone and preventing any and all magic from occuring within its bubble of effect. This bubble will collapse if the caster leaves the area, so the Spite is aptly named -- none but the most spiteful would cast it without just cause.

Effect: Prevents all spell casting in the area.
Example Messaging: You gesture.

With great strain, you channel the energies of your spiteful magic outward in a wide bubble, forcing the inherent mana streams to bend in their courses and leaving the area temporarily barren of all magic.
Roundtime: 3 sec.

Contest Type: mind / willpower
