|Description:||The Mark of Arhat spell is named for the founder of the first guild, Warrior Mages. Arhat was to fire magic as a mother is to child. One of his favorite spells was one of his own devising. He never named the spell, and when it was found at the time of his death, the spell was named in Arhat's honor.
