Description: Worm's Mist is a powerful yet potentially crippling defense. The spell mutates the Necromancer's sweat glands and pores, allowing his body to produce a clinging, supernatural miasma. Any spell that passes through the miasma risks coming apart at the seams, including the Necromancer's own.

The spell is traditionally deployed near the skin, granting the caster protection against other magicians without any chinks or flaws. While the Necromancer's own spells are likewise hindered, that is what Risen are for. Alternately, he may weave Worm's Mist into a shell approximately ten feet in diameter. This allows the Necromancer to freely cast upon himself and anyone within a melee, but grants the same courtesy to his enemies.

Effect: Magic barrier.
Example Messaging: 3rd person:

<Necromancer> gestures.
Greasy black mist rises from <Necromancer>'s <skin/scales> and clings to her body.

1st person:
Your <skin/scales> burn as the mutative spell takes hold. Greasy black mist rises from your pores and clings to your flesh.

Tiny red and purple shafts appear within the black mist surrounding <Necromancer> and writhe in frenzy.
Your spell loses cohesion when it attempts to pass through the unholy miasma.
