Two more spells for ice, with flexibility built in to make them more likely to be useful. A tunnel could be a single room, or used to carve of a chunk, or shape a drain or ramp.
Tunnel Through the Ice
Perdo Aquam 30, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Part
Creates a passage within an ice flow. The tunnel defaults to a few paces wide by three paces tall by 100 paces long, however the shape may be modified by the caster into another simple geometric shape.
(Base 10, +1 Touch, +1 Part, +1 flexibility in shape, +1 size)
Then a similar effect which requires a Finesse skill check which counterbalances the lower base effect.
Hew a Dwelling Within the Ice
Rego Aquam 20, R: Touch, D: Momentary, T: Part
Carves a passage into a larger volume of ice, shaped to the caster’s desire, which requires a finesse check to determine the accuracy and potential safety of the hollow area.
(Base 4, +1 Touch, +1 Part, +1 flexibility in shape, +1 size)
