Casting messages

Casting

> cast Patient Taming of the Quantum Weather Butterfly with coldness
Your mahogany staff momentarily shines in all the colours of a rainbow.
You prepare to cast Patient Taming of the Quantum Weather Butterfly.
You close your eyes as you stand at the edge of the octogram, and allow your fluid thoughts to spread out in tranquility, your mind a peaceful leaf on the calm seas.
Focusing on the earth at the very centre of the octogram, you force it to rise into an arcane, eight-sided dais.
You consider the weather in all its grandness, and send your thoughts into the high winds, divining the mysteries of cooler weather.
Searching back into the recesses of your mind, you push through to a point in time and space where the weather was cooler, and send thoughts of high heat there, displacing the coolness and bringing it closer to you.
Your concentration at a maximum, you start to form these thoughts into a single, solid lotus of ice, which hovers before you in the centre of the octogram.

To others

Wizard stands at the edge of the octogram and closes her eyes.  She slowly sways back and forth like a low wave in a peaceful trance.
Wizard stares at the centre of the octogram, and within moments a large, arcane, eight-sided dais rises up and towers above you.
Wizard stares into space, and the air around her starts to spin and twist, rising upwards violently.
Wizard focuses her eyes downwards, as the air coalesces into a rather large, spinning, hovering, cool lotus of wind.
The lotus begins to form crystals of ice, and takes on a more solid, spherical shape as it hovers and spins in the middle of the octogram.
