Description: The development of Words of the Wind represents a rather radical departure from traditional thinking. The majority of Bardic Magic is based on the use of sound and music to invoke the elements, whereas this spell is based on an idea first proposed by Karovaas in conjunction with the Warrior Mages of Aesry. Their notion was to reverse the process, and as a result Words of the Wind instills you with the very essence of Air, granting wisdom and an enhanced aptitude for the Bardic arts. While this fairly simple idea has driven the development of several derivative patterns an individual may still only embody one element at a time.
Effect: +Bardic Lore skill, +Wisdom (stat), +Mojo regeneration
Example Messaging: You gaze towards the sky above seeking the strongest flows of Air.

Having located a suitably abundant flow of Air, you inhale sharply filling yourself with the tranquil element. As it drifts through your body the Fire already residing there is carried from you in a fleeting torrent of heat and passion. The Air quickly snuffs your passion and anger leaving you with a sense of serenity and increased rapport with your surroundings. The abrupt transition leaves you stunned!
