The mercenaries sent after Stork and Vistis the Blue Mage were relentless. The small warband went from town to town hellbent on finding the two spellcasters. Their leader even hired a wizard of no small ability to come with them. Upon finding their quarry the leader nodded and the wizard cast a spell upon him.
Stork exploded from the room of the small cottage, shadows twisting and curling around him, grasping at the warriors and their wizard. All scattered in fear except the mercenary leader.
‘I do not fear you, wizard!’ he said bravely.
Stork leaped at him and viciously bit at the man’s throat with his shark-like teeth while howling in rage. Surprised, the man dropped his sword and staggered backwards, clutching at his bleeding throat.
‘It would have been a better idea to run,’ Vistis commented as he appeared from the cottage.
Fearless One (Magic-user)
Duration: One turn (ten minutes) per level of caster.
When Fearless One is cast upon a subject that person can walk into any situation with absolutely no fear and is immune to any physical or magical manifestations of fear and terror for the duration of the spell. While great for making speeches and facing crowds it may not be the best for facing undead and other fear inducing creatures. In fact most of the time those under this spell feel compelled to stand and fight.
