Hail and Well Met, fellow traveler! May my Stronghold provide a place for enlightenment and amusement, and somewhere to keep your dice dry. Enter and rest awhile.

[A to Z April] V is for Vapor Dwindle (spell)

Vapor Dwindle

Evocation (Air)
Level: Clr 3, Air 3, Drd 3
Components: V,S,DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: 100 ft.
Effect: 20-ft. radius, 20-ft. high; see text
Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: See text
Spell Resistance: See text

This spell is designed to be cast upon cloud and mist effects to temporarily minimize their influence. When cast upon a magical effect such as fog cloud, obscuring mist, or stinking cloud or upon any natural effect such as a cloud of dust or smoke, vapor dwindle creates a cyclonic effect which begins at a 20-foot radius and 20-foot height; it draws itself inward to a 5-foot radius and 5-foot height by the start of the next round. As it shrinks, it draws in the cloud or mist effect with the cyclone and holds it in place dwindleing in the same 5-foot radius until the vapor dwindle is either dispelled or its duration terminates. While it is active, the effect appears to be a swirling mass of cloud or vapor in the reduced area.

Vapor dwindle has no effect on physical objects or beings; it will not affect their breathing or existence in any way, except if they themselves are in the midst of a cloud or mist effect, in which case the vapor dwindle may free them from the effects of the cloud. Creatures made from mist or cloud may be affected; in this instance the dwindle effect is subject to the creature’s spell resistance; such creatures may make a Reflex save versus the spell’s DC to negate the effects.

**Many thanks to my buddy Simonathi Starym for some creative assistance.

I used to have a guy in my gaming group back in high school that could have certainly used a Vapor Dwindle spell cast on him at least once a session!
