The Warming Charm & The Chilling Charm

Chapter 18

These two charms have just recently left experimental stage. Developed by the noted Magical Theorist Arameus Szareko, the charms work in a similar manner and provide great practice for concentration over a protracted period of time.

The Warming Charm(u)

Incantation: Focillo (‘foh-Sill-oh’)
Wand Movement: Slow clockwise circles that continue while you concentrate.
Focus: Target of warmth.
Willpower: Moderate
Concentration: Moderate. Concentration should be maintained on the thought of warmth and heat.

The Warming Charm produces gentle warmth that radiates outward from the tip of the wand in a small cone. The caster must focus upon the object they are warming with this charm as the spell is cast. This determines the width of the cone of heat. The caster can make the heat a bit more intense with an effort of willpower, though the heat is never hot enough to be dangerous. The caster must concentrate upon the thought of warmth and heat while casting the spell. The caster can maintain the spell indefinitely as long as they continue to concentrate on the spell and warm thoughts.

The Chilling Charm(u)

Incantation: Infrigido (‘in-Frig-ee-doh’)
Wand Movement: Slow counter-clockwise circles that continue while you concentrate.
Focus: Target of cold.
Willpower: Moderate
Concentration: Moderate. Concentration should be maintained on the thought of cold and chill.

The Chilling Charm produces the opposite effect to the Warming Charm, producing gentle chill air that radiates outward from the tip of the wand in a small cone. The caster must focus upon the object they are chilling with this charm as the spell is cast. This determines the width of the chilling cone. The caster can make the spell a bit colder through an effort of willpower, though the spell is never cold enough to be dangerous. The caster must concentrate upon the thought of cold and chill while casting the spell. The caster can maintain the spell indefinitely as long as they continue to concentrate on the spell and cold thoughts.
